This is a great product for true combination/oily skin, especially if you live in a humid, tropical country like Singapore. The price is slightly higher than the usual Korean brands, but it's totally worth it. The colour tone is not ashy, not too pinkish. It's beige, great if your skin has slight reddish tone. It's matte finish, but if you prefer a slightly more dewy look, go for the Ettusais BB cream that's in a white tube.
This product was one of the worst BB Creams I have ever tried. This BB cream was soo matte and dry that my whole face felt so dry and left spot all over my face as if my makeup has been on for 10 hours and looked extremely cakey. I have combination skin therefore I don't experience breakouts but after putting this on my face felt like a rubber and was very uncomfortable. It also left my face redness on my cheeks that seemed like blush. Also this BB Cream was not moisturising at all it just makes your face dry up, especially if you have dry skin, my friend put this on and her whole face had dry patches everywhere and skin peeled off, which later caused acne! I do not recommend this product!
Was recommended by friend, tried this product and really blend with my skin tone(i was using ottie purple dew powder before) better then using powder foundation. I have sensitive skin and this BB cream doesnt cause any pimple outbreak ~ this is a really good product
I found this product via a taiwanese magazine and well, apparrently it topped sales there. I thought the packaging was really cute so i decided to give it a go after reading so many positive reviews about it .
I had to say that i was really impressed by what i felt at the counter. I applied a pea sized amount onto the back of my hand and smoothed it out. It felt like : reallyyyy smooth. not a bit of stickiness that BB creams tend to give.
I love the matte look that it gives and the fact that it was withstand my excessive sweating( i sweat like really easily)and always retexturises itself whenever i am back in air con .
It didnt broke me out :) dont really know about the anti-acne effects that it publicises about but , yeah, small pimples here and there but no major explosion :)
The coverage is okay i guess ~ not that i apply a lot though . it probably cant do much about covering the redness around my nose area but something is better than nothing.
It looks really natural, which is what i love about it :) my friends couldnt tell whenever i applied it !
no weird smell or whatsoever ~
I LOVE THE PACKAGING <3
I really really love this BB cream! It is my go-to BB cream ever since I bought it. Even though the price was still pretty high it is pretty worth it. The formula is so smooth and I feel like I don't have makeup on but at the same time making my skin look flawless. I have seen this BB cream in a couple of Japanese magazines I bought and they really recommended it. The packaging is also very cute and pretty even though it is kind of small... I will definitely repurchase pretty soon because I'm almost out!
I love reviewing BB creams because I use them on a daily basis. Ettusias Mineral BB won the Japanese Cosme Award in the Best BB Cream category for 2 years, which is a big deal because Japanese consumers are very hard to keep, they are always trying new products & have high expectations; I was confident about this BB cream although I knew nothing about it before purchasing, just because it has 2 years of trophy title.
Differences between Japanese & Korean BB Cream:
I have many Korean & Japanese BB creams and I find that Japanese ones are typically more lightweight & comfortable to wear than Korean ones, probably due to the local weather differences, Japan has ultra humid summers & this BB cream caters humidity really well.
Combination & acne prone, with yellow undertone, about NC 25, the #1 (it comes in 3 shades) shade evens & brightens me amazingly well.
BB cream properties:
3 shades, fragrance free, SPF 30 PA++, 79% skincare ingredients, 6 moisturizing ingredients.
I really enjoy this BB cream, specially how it wears & it's finish , it feels light, it lasts me 4-5 hrs with no primer & powder, it doesn't reduce oil, you don't need to set with power if you are satisfy with it's medium coverage, because it has powder finish, which is fantastic because dry-finish usually last longer & its easier to apply powder blush on top. It doesn't break me out, but I cannot speak for it's skincare effect since I rotate BB cream every few days. Overall I really like this BB cream & wish it would last 1-2 hours longer. However I look forward to try their new version "Mineral White BB Cream".

I got this in shade 30 for my NC25 skin. It was a close match. Looks really natural as it contains more yellow undertones as compared to Korean BB creams. But unfortunately this BB cream does not last at all. By 12 i already look like an oily mess and needs to touch up. I like that it does not emphasize on my pores and It does even out my skin, but the coverage is not enough for my acne scarring. Price is a little steep but i guess that goes for all BB creams you buy in Singapore.
This product contains Dimethicone, Alcohol.. So stay away if you have sensitive skin.
I got this in 30 for my GA LSF5, medium tanned skin which was a good enough match. After blending and spreading (I found it a bit thick), the coverage was good just like foundation and the finish is matte which I like. I set it with Paul & Joe loose powder which has shimmers so that's just about enough radiance for me, I hope.
However, I soon found that the BB cream is drying my skin out in various places, especially around the nose and mouth area. I got dry patches which I had to resort to a range of skincare to help combat, especially since the rest of my skin was still combi-oily.
Hence, will not repurchase this product. I don't think BB cream formulas suit me as they seem to dry me out and give me odd dry patches on my skin. continued >>
New favorite BB Cream! I bought a tube in Japan and tested it out when I got home. I wish I had brought a few more tubes home. I love it!
Weightless texture, glides on effortlessly
Nice light coverage, evens out my skintone and looks completely natural
Comes in 3 shades (the lightest shade 10 worked well with my complexion)
High SPF (30)
There are no negatives really. The cream smells a little sunscreeny, but for all the pros, I can easily live with one minor quibble.
I like this BB cream because this is very light and doesn't aggravate my acne. However, I would have to give up some coverage in exchange for it's light texture.
It does keep my skin matte, but also tends to slide off my face by mid-day, probably due to Singapore's crazy humid weather. This happens with all liquid foundation and bb creams I have tried so I am not particularly bothered by it.
I'm around NC30 and I'm using their darkest shade, which is a tad too light for me, but I am able to get away with it because it's yellow enough for me. In fact, it is probably the only BB cream that looks decent on me, as other BB creams for darker skin tone tend to be too pink or ashy.
Price wise, it's on the steeper side, but one tube lasts a long way anyway.
Overall, it's a pretty good bb cream that I use on a daily basis. I would recommend it to those with acne-prone/oily skin because of how weightless it feels on my skin, but I probably won't re-purchase though, cause I want to try out their liquid foundation!
