Hi guys! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
Today i'll talk about my currently most used BB cream from Etude House, it's Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream!
I got this BB Cream from awhile ago, and have been using it everyday.
So let's take a look! (´∇ﾉ｀*)ノ
|Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream|
|Mine is in No.2 Light Beige|
Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream promotes silky complexion and brightened look with Pearl Mineral Powder infused sheer coverage. Powerful UV protection and long lasting waterproof formula for all day outdoor protection.
At first i want to try this BB cream because i don't have Sun Block. So i think BB Cream with a high SPF will be a good choice. Did you know that Sunlight contains UVA and UVB? UVA caused early aged skin and UVB caused sunburn and skin cancer. SPF only covered UVB protections, not UVA. so SPF alone is not enough to protect our skin, specially in Indonesia when the sun is so cruel. (°◇°;)
So what will protect us from UVA? it's called PA ( Protection grade of UVA ). More "+" it have more good it is. It's similar with SPF, more high the number more longer it will protect us from UVB.
SPF 15 will gave us 150 minutes of sun protection, and SPF 50 gave us 500 minutes of sun protection. (❁´◡`❁)*✲ﾟ*
While PA+ provides some UVA protection and protects sensitive skin against low to medium UV radiation, PA++ provides moderate UVA protection and it offers better protection from UVA rays and can be used by people with normal skin exposed to medium UV radiation, PA+++ provides good UVA protection and it's the strongest grade of UVA protection now available. It is designed for normal skin under very strong or direct UV radiation.
This BB cream have SPF50+/PA+++, it give enough protection for a whole day. One more unique thing about this BB cream is, it has a sponge applicator that can be used for blending. But i rarely using it because i think i used up more product with it and it give a sheer coverage. So it's better to blend the BB cream with my hands.

|One layer of BB cream|
|Concealer and powder applied|
As you can see, one layer of this BB cream already correct my skin color and covered most of my imperfection. I just need a little bit of concealer to cover up my dark circle and acne scar. The coverage is good enough that i only applied one layer, this will avoid cakey and thick makeup and give us a natural look instead. This BB cream last all day and i used it for swimming once and it stayed on my face really well! (without rubbing).
The only minus thing about this BB cream is the price is more expensive than the usual Precious Mineral BB cream, and the bottle is smaller? O_O
- Long Lasting
- Good Coverage
- Have SPF50+/PA+++
- Sponge applicator is ratter useless
- Smaller quantity
