Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte SPF50+ PA+++

Hi Everyone!

I am very happy to be here writing this review because this was a product that I really wanted share here in my blog because is great and is from one of my favorite korean brands like is Etude House. I decided try because I wanted go back to the basics with a BB Cream and after several months using foundation I felt that I needed something more moisturizing. And I need say I am impressed about how Etude House has improved their formulas. Time ago some BB Creams from this brand that were for oily skin with a supposed matt effect they were actually dissapointing for me.

Well I hope you can find this review useful. Something I need comment that I am surprised about the quality of this product, because is very affordable and to the same time really good.

Before and After

PROs and CONs

- Cute packaging
- Nice quantity of product 45 grams
- Medium coverage
- Matte effect
- Long lasting effect
- SPF 50+ PA+++
- Whitening effect

- Tends to produce cakey effect in some reas after several hours
- On many countries you only can buy this product online (like me)


I had my doubts when I purchased this BB Cream but this resulted be a good product. My overall impresions is that I like this BB Cream. But I have my issues. This product provides a medium coverage and a lot of sun protection like you can see in the ingredients and that I really like for the day. This BB Cream only looks good If you apply with sponge to a difference ot others BB Creams that you can apply with makeup brush If you apply this without a makeup sponge this going to look messy and produces a cakey effect. And that is my second inconvenience is that If you don´t apply  this product quickly with the sponge you can feel how spread this product can be difficult and nothing easy for blend.

I have oily sensitive skin and the good point is that this product hasn´t caused me any allergic reaction. I can feel like this BB Cream provides a layer that helps to protect the skin but thanks to that same layer you need apply the double cleanser for remove this BB Cream so yeah this is a Bb Cream that tends to interact like a foundation respect to matter of adhherence. 

The medium coverage is really good. Now my only concern is about the cakey effect. I moisturize my skin everyday but I found that If I don´t want a cakey effect or at least decrease the cakey effect in some areas I need moisture the double or apply a mist after finish with my face makeup. I guess that is good but not so much, because I mean I like the matte effect but one thing is matte effect and other cakey messy effect. 

My technique for use this BB Cream is use previous the Etude House Glow On Base Hydra of course only before apply this BB Cream and the effect looks matte but not cakey but that is my only really concern about the formula. This product has a great price between $10 to $15 USD and that is a great for a quantity of 45 grams. Like always Etude House has a shade that is more light than the real name. This shade is called "Beige" but looks more like a light beige. 

This is a good product and now I am interested in try the moiturizing counter part. I only recommend this product If you have oily skin because this can be to much for normal or dry skin. Another positive thing about this product is that the coverage and effect is really long lasting over 10 hours and that is pretty good.


(*≧ω≦)ノ This is how looks my skin with full makeup and after apply the Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte
