There have been a lot of raves on BB Cream up to this date. I am not a fan of light coverage make-up because I used to work for almost 12 hours so I thought BB creams are too light coverage for my taste.
I tested few products at the counter to see their consistensy and coverage. I was looking for something affordable but promises better skin in the long run untill I come accross Etude House Precious Mineral Precious Mineral BB Cream. I've had it for a while, almost six months I guess but I don't use it on a daily basis. I still rely on foundation when I go to work.
Precious Mineral BB Cream promotes silky complexion with pear infused sheer coverage. Contains adenosine & arbutin for anti-wrinkle & whitening efficacies. SPF for UV protection. Paraben free. Oil free. Mineral Oil free. Dermatologist tested.
Since I stop working, I don't feel the need to use heavy foundation anymore. So I gave this BB Cream another try and I'm glad I did. I used to apply it using a flat top brush but I learned that applying it using my fingers is better. I think that it looks even when applied with fingers and it makes the product stays longer on my face, maybe that's just me.
Two pumps are enough to cover the whole face and neck.
This is how a pump looks like. It looks heavy, right?
When blended. See how it covers lines on my hand?

Please note that my photos are taken without flash. The coverage it gives is enough especially on a hot humid day. I don't want to look cakey or to see the foundation melting on my face. For less than Php800 with 60g of products it will last more than 2 months of daily use. Just think of it as a tinted moisturizer with additional benefits for your skin.
