I don't like it. It makes my oily skin much more oily and my cheeks are dry.
It has quite fine color and shining finish, which is OK on cheeks (but not in T zone! (T_T).
- package (pump is nice solution)
- shining finish
- not for oily skin!
- allergic (?)

Although this bb cream doesn't have much oil-control at all, the coverage and finish make it one of my favorites.
I know some people consider this for a sheer, natural look, but I don't think that's really going to work out with this. I mean, of course you can do light applications and everything, but if you want a natural look (with some coverage), Skin79's hot pink is a better choice (not that it's the best -- I don't use anything that gives only a sheer look so I can't help with that). A light layer of this compared to a light layer of Skin79? This looks way more make-upy.
In any case, you can definitely layer and get amazing coverage. It comes with such a pretty, (dewy!) flawless finish that blurs your pores and makes you look super smooth. As I mentioned earlier, you won't really see any oil-control. It doesn't contribute to oiliness, though, and doesn't make me break out. Also, I don't see any grey cast and although this is white, I think it's still workable as long as you're at least medium-fair.

I have the #1 Sheer Silky Skin one for oily skin. Unfortunately, I was very, very disappointed with this product. I had high hopes after seeing many reviews on it online about how "great" it was. I decided to take the plunge. I have tried many different BB creams including Skin79 VIP Gold & Hot Pink(fav), Skinfood Aloe(another fav), Mushroom, Red bean,Missha Perfect Cover, Peripera I love Light, Lioele Triple the Solution, BRTC Jasmine water & Blemish recovery balm(another fav), and Dr. Jart Silver Label (another fav)and I am sad to say that this one is my LEAST favorite of the bunch.
It comes in a VERY pretty box, and i was so excited when I opened it. It looks so ladylike and elegant. From then on it goes downhill. The tube itself is okaaayyy looking. It looks pretty plain, and the pump a thin plastic is not fun to deal with. The bottle screams cheap! The product itself is very runny. It has a very watery consistency, almost reminds me of a liquid foundation. The color is tad on the orange side, a tad too dark for my NW15 skin tone, and it doesn't adjust, so it just stays that color all day long. I think if you're between NW 20-NW25 it might work for you. The smell is really subtle. It does not smell like anything, maybe medicine?
As far as benefits go, I would not say that I noticed any regenerating, moisturizing, or whitening properties that this BB cream (and most REAL BB creams) advertise. It did cover very well, but it just felt like any old foundation that you slab on your face, and I felt like I was wearing a mask! I have used many BB creams that are a heavier texture, such as Skin79 or BRTC, and I don't mind that at all, because I could feel my skin getting the moisturization and nutrition that it needs. This, on the other hand, was a lighter texture yet when it went on, felt like it was suffocating my skin. It clogs my pores and looks cakey. Every time I wear this, my Mom yells at me telling me I have too much foundation on! >_< ugh! Well, I most definitely won't be purchasing this again. I don't know what I'm going to do with 60g of this... I normally am very positive when it comes to BB creams, but this one just did not do it for me. BOTTOM LINE: CHEAP! very disappointed with it:(

This broke me out, but if it doesnt I would have liked it very much.
THe coverage is simply marvelous, I have acne scars and can cover them without a concealer.

I bought this product after Martina's reviews on Eat Your Kimchi. I'm not a big make up wearer but was interested when she said BB cream was lighter and easier to wear than foundation.
So this was the first one I bought! I bought it in the lightest shade because I'm really pale. It is maybe slightly too light even for me, but I just wear it with a slightly darker powder to compensate. It feels really nice on, very light and it easy to blend. I bought it on Ebay and it was a reasonable price, around £8.
The only bad point is that after 2-3 hours my T zone does start to get pretty oily and after 4-5 hours it starts coming off! I do have a very oily T zone though. I use powder with it and blotting sheets. I don't think I would buy it again because of this and I'm now looking for a BB cream more suitable to oily skin.
It would be great for normal skin type though!
To sum up...
* Price - Inexpensive
* Texture - Light and blendable
* Colour - 4 to choose from!
* Not for oily skin!
* Colour - Lightest is too light even for vampires like me!

I bought two shades, W24 Honey Beige and W15 Sand Beige which are suitable for darker or tanned skin tones.
Since I bought them directly in Korea it was pretty cheap (no shipping costs etc.) and it is a very popular brand here.
Sadly I have more negative experiences than positive ones.
First, I thought that I finally found a great BB cream with the right shade (not too light!) but no.
After applying the BB cream it looks ok first but two to three hours later it turns dark, almost orange, like crazy.
The lighter shades do not turn darker so I can't even switch to another cream.
And regardless if I use fingers, sponge or brush it simply doesn't blend well.
Together with fixing powder it doesn't look like a flawless finish but more like a cakey mask.
Here's my Pro/Con list:
- Good choice of colors (4 shades)
- Good coverage
- Breakouts on the chin
- Oxidates very fast
- Greasy feeling
- Turns oily after 2-4 hours
- Makes certain spots on the skin flakey & dry
- clogged pores
- Pump is uncontrollable, I never get the desired amount out if it.
This BB cream might be suitable in winter or cooler countries; I would repurchase it but due to the breakouts I won't.

i've been using this bb cream (in honey beige) for months now and im really happy about it :) i wear it everyday to school.
-doesn't feel heavy on skin
-light coverage = perfect for everyday natural look :)
-last long = about 8-10 hrs (i set it w/ loose powder)
-very controllable pump!
-works great as a primer
-can't think of any :P

I am about MAC NC20 and use shade #2. Out of all the bb creams I have tried, this has the best coverage. I would usually wear this one when I go out at night.
Color tone:pretty good match by itself. I would usually mix another yellower bb cream to match my skin better. This bb cream is a tad bit pink for my skin. Better than too grey like many other korean bb creams I suppose. This product doesn't seem to oxidize as well.
Texture: Creamy and a little on heavier side which is probably why coverage is good. Skin looks so smooth and flawless but still natural. Make sure to The bad thing I would say is that at the end of the day, I always find my pores clogged by this BB cream. I have tried using with/without primer, different setting powders, moisturizers, everything, but still end up with clogged pores. Frustrating haha! I have combination skin and would definitely reccomend to use an oil cleanser to remove this. I also use my clarisonic every night which is maybe why I don't break out with this bb cream like many people say.
Overall, I like it for now until I find something better.

I bought Etude house Precious mineral in shade 1, for oily skin. My skin is combination and it gets very dry in winter and very oily in summer. I avoid this cream in winter cause it is quite thick and can be drying. I have dry skin around my nose even in summer so I have to make sure to moisturize it well before applying this BB cream.
- amazing coverage, medium-full! I have not seen any product yet with this much coverage and it is one of the top reasons why I want to repurchase this product!
- pink tone! My skin tone is fair with pink undertones so I this suits me well
- SPF of 30
- great packaging
- long lasting, 60g
- nice scent
- feels quite thick and heavy on face except summer time
- accentuates dry patches if you don't moisturize well
- matte finish doesn't last long in summer
Overall, the biggest plus about this product is COVERAGE. It can give full coverage while still looking good and this is why I will buy it again.

I picked up #2 "Sheer Glowing Skin" on a local website, and then found out it's been discontinued (and replaced by "Bright Fit"). Instead of sending it back, I decided to go ahead and use the cream up - I'd heard so many good things about Etude House's products and i was eager to give this stuff a try. I'm NC20-25 and this stuff is a wee bit light for me. Despite coming darker out of the tube than Skin79's BB creams, it doesn't blend in with the underlying skin tone as well as it could. The coverage is close to full, so there's definitely a "something on my face look" which I don't get from Skin79. Regardless, this is a good, solid BB cream which can be used for the days in which I need some heavier coverage. Staying power is fantastic - it survived a long day in the sun (which included some urban trekking) and an accidental nap (I fell asleep with it on after the aforementioned trek). It doesn't dry up on my face or look cakey. The packaging is very cute, 60g is a generous amount of product for the price. Overall - I'd repurchase this if I could, but since it's been discontinued, I'm hoping it's replacement "Bright Fit" is a similar product. If you're looking for a higher-coverage BB cream which can survive a sunny day in the urban jungle, this is your stuff.

This review is for the Sheer Glowing Skin version (pink packaging):
1. This has a lot of -cones, but at least it also includes titanium dioxide along with zinc oxide, and arbutin as well. Good points.
2. Low on the list of ingredients is sodium chloride (5\5 on comedogenic scale).
3. No single product has ever broken me so bad. One HUGE pimple that lasted for two weeks and finally resulted in a pitted scar, the 1st in my entire life of relatively good skin. All because I took me time to realize I needed to remove the BB cream with oil at the end of the day. Simple water-based cleanser didn't quite cut it.
4. I needed to add a lot of powder on top to remove the oil slick.
Now that I know that my breakout was probably due to improper cleansing at the end of the day, I could try using it again, but I don't really dare. I just dab a little bit under my eyes. The tube will last me a lifetime as a concealer. Quite good for that purpose.

I'm glad I got to buy this product in Seoul where the SAs were more knowledgeable! All I did was ask for the recommended product and shade, and so I bought the Precious Mineral Sheer Glowing Skin BB Cream in #2, together with the Nymph Aura Volumer. The SA also said it would be better not to use powder over it, because I really should on areas where I tend to get oilier.
I love this product, my friend who is into make up mentioned that it made me look pore-less, and my mom told me I looked fresh, so that makes it worth it. I always use the Volumer with this, as it gives more dewiness. I just have to remember to use the right amount because too much will make me look greasy all-over. I use this for special occasions as it has more coverage than the MISSHA M Signature one.
The pump bottle is great, but I can never tell if it's time to buy a new bottle. It's no big deal though, because we have local Etude stores where I live and for the price, I don't have to think twice about re-purchasing.

I have the one in shade 3. Anyways In short: this Etude House precious mineral BB cream is AWESOME! Here's why:
-Thin and watery but has high coverage. 1-2 layers and my red/brown acne scars are no where in sight.
-Super natural looking! My friend actually told me she noticed my acne is gone when in reality the scars are just covered under this BB cream.
-Shade 3 is actually a little dark on my hand than on my face, to make sure it looks natural apply some on the neck but careful not to get it on the clothes.
-There's a light scent to it, when you apply it it disappears.
-Even though it says "Mineral" on the name there are no minerals in it, which breaks me out.
It is one of the cheaper BB creams out there on ebay, definitely worth a try!! Between this and Missha M Perfect cover (which I like a lot too) I choose this one!

The coverage for this BB cream is medium to full. I've bought the shade #2 on impulse and when i went home and tried it on, it was too dark for me. One thing i don't like about Etude House in Singapore is that their sales assistants were rather untrained(?) or don't even seem to be familiar w the products they were selling. They told me that this (#2) was for cool skinned tone, suits my skin tone and is suitable for oily skin. Whole load of bulls***. When i went to Korea, i went to buy the one in shade #1. When i told the sales assistant that i thought that the #2 was for oily skin, she corrected me immediately and said that #1 is for oily skin and #2 is for dry skin. I had to waste SGD39.90 because of that inexperienced sales assistant! >;/
But enough of ranting. This product (#1) delivers its promise and stayed on my skin for the whole day and i almost do not have any problems w my oily skin at all! I was so surprised! I mixed it w the Nymph Aura Volumer (also from Etude) and it gave you the dewy skin that you see on Korean celebrities. Sometimes i would choose to set the BB cream w my loose powder. This BB cream can also act as a concealer because of it's thick consistency. When i went to class in this make up, no one could tell that i was wearing make up, which is good because you don't want your make up to look cakey and unnatural and look as if you've caked on 6-inch thick of foundation/concealer/etc.
I would definitely purchase this BB cream again. But definitely not from the Etude House retail stores here. It's better to check up on reviews and determine which one is better for your skin tone.
*PS: Something i don't like about this BB cream is that it turns a bit darker than the original colour a while after you apply it to your face.

Helloo this is just one of the many BB creams I own and I must say it is one of the higher coverage BB creams out there.
I have this is in #2 Sheer Glowing skin. The lady at Etude House matched me as this and it isn't perfect, but after it oxidizes and I use a face powder, it gives me really good coverage.
It leaves your skin even and covers minor blemishes. It does have a white cast on the skin for a while but if you use bronzer or a darker face powder, it will match your skin.
It did not break me out and it totally covered my pores!
This is definitely a medium coverage and leaves a natural satin finish. You don't need a lot of this product and it is best applied with fingers.
It is a thicker consistency but feels okay after it is blended on your skin.
It has mineral particles in the product but once you pat it in the skin and spread it evenly, it melts into the skin. It does feel slightly sticky and I agree that this is not great for oily skin individuals, I like mixing this with a matte foundation to keep it looking more natural by providing some sheen.
This product is not for everyone. Although it has a wide shade selection for a BB cream, it will only match those with a light-light-medium skin tone. :) Targeted for Asians with a neutral/yellow undertone. This will not work for you if you are not in the target group.

I used to apply this on top of my sunscreen and felt that it looked too thick and was slightly difficult to spread on the skin. However, I tried mixing this together with my sunscreen (Biore UV Perfect Face Milk, white bottle) and it worked perfectly. Just the right amount of coverage, very easy to spread, and gives a healthy and natural glow. All I needed after that was a light layer of loose powder, and my skin looks fresh and matte all day long. I'd only need to blot about 2-3 times a day at most.
I use 2 parts sunscreen to 1 part BB cream (about 1 pump) and it was enough for my face and neck. Have tried this method with other BB creams/ tinted moisturizer but Etude's sheer silky skin works best for my skin color as it has a pinkish hue.

Sorry, but I have to give one point to it... Break me out... Finally, I found BB cream is not for acne prone skin... So sad... T_T
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Blue
I found this too chalky, grey and thick. I tried mixing with a tinted primer to thin it out and lift the colour. That worked just ok for me. It looked too much like makeup for my liking. I felt like Goldilocks trying different samplers, and got just right with Skin79 Gold label. It makes MY skin look great instead of covered in pancake batter. Not for me.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Green
I love this stuff, works perfect on my pale skin. I have the pink tube for normal type skin and it is perfect, amazing finish. Sometimes I will use a bit of foundation or concealer with it or just wear it alone. Love the high spf and the low price. This is a great product.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
super loving this product! bought it in shade #2 and I am nc30-35 in mac and it fits well my skin tone, i just dab some powder with my preferred shade, it matches well, it stays on my face the whole day without using an oil blotting paper. it didnt break me out whatsoever. i guess im just one of the lucky ones who are not so overly sensitive. though one negative comment is the packaging the pump is so unpredictable, hard to control how much its gonna squirt out :-( sometimes it gives out too much... what a waste.
btw my skin is combination of dry and oily, it improved my skin condition. and i have noticed that the dark circles around my eyes are improving, i dont use undereye concealer anymore, though im still waiting for my few freckles to vanish. hopefully soon!
