Etude House Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream [review

Annyeong, everybodyyyyy~
I'm so sorry for neglecting my blog and being so unproductive this month :s
I'd like to apologize towards my sponsors for late reviews that I haven't done yet T___T
Gyaaa~ I'm such a bad beauty blogger ;_; I couldn't manage time well lately..

And I decided to skip valentine post as well.. Because I have no much things to share..
(I spent my valentine day for working and went to church for a particular event).

Now I'm back with one of my BB cream collections review!
I'm pretty sure that you're familiar with this BB cream, aren't you?

Yes, it's Precious Mineral Sun BB cream from Etude House.

*Packaging*
- Convenient (it comes with sponge)
- Not bulky
- Great innovation

Features:
SPF50+/PA+++
Whitening & Anti-wrinkle
Anti-darkening
Long lasting waterproof


There are two way to apply this BB cream:
1. Squeeze it through its sponge and blend it well with the sponge; or 
2. Screw off the cap, squeeze it and blend it with fingers.

I got mine in Natural Beige W13


This BB cream has three different shades:
N02 Light Beige
W13 Natural Beige
W15 Sand Beige

Netto: 35g


*Ingredients*
It doesn't contains alcohol.. and if my eyes weren't wrong.. 
this BB cream has no fragrance and mineral oil as well! It's safe for sensitive skin :D
Contains silica and some of flowers extracts.


the cap

squeeze gently to get the cream

When I detached its sponge.. You may applying it either with sponge or fingers ^^
Not forget to mention.. you should wash the sponge regularly :)

swatch on my hand.

Sorry, actually I have captured my face with this BB cream applied on..
But I forgot which one was the photos -__-" Since I made many selca photos nowadays *slapped*

*Coverage & Texture*
The coverage is light-medium, and the result is semi-matte finish.
Could be spread easily on my face :)


*Performance*
The shade W13 matches with my skin perfectly! It doesn't feel heavy on my face.
Too bad, it doesn't really long lasting. My T-zone starting to shiny after 3-4 hours, and melt off after 6 hours.

*Fragrance*
It has same scent with all my Precious Mineral BB cream series.
I can't describe its scent well.. The scent isn't bothering at all :)



What I love <3
+ It has high SPF 
+ Matches with my skin perfectly
+ Doesn't gives heavy feeling on my skin
+ Suitable for everyday (outdoor)
+ Has convenient packaging
+ Travel-friendly

What I hate </3
- Amount of the product isn't comparable with the price
- Sometimes the BB cream squirt everywhere when I squeeze it to hard -.-"
(Just remember to place it downside!!)
- The oil control is so-so

Rating: 4/5

Repurchase? Maybe no.. I still have many brand-new BB creams on my stack >.<
Recommended? Yes

Who may like it? People with dry-skin type, outdoor activity and like to travelling



Anyway If I'm not mistaken, the price is around IDR 180rb or $18..
I didn't really know since I got this one for giveaway prize :p tee-hee~

So, have you tried this BB cream?
How's your opinion? ^^
Thanks for reading!

My Chinese New Year Look

Hi dolls! Today I'd like to share you my look for CNY celebration.
Ahemm.. Gong Xi Fa Cai for everyone~! Sorry for the late post (-____-" )
Valentine's day has over yesterday and I just post about CNY (How late I am)

I hope you don't mind to read my super late >.<
I was in Jakarta at January 10th-12th for Chinese New Year Celebration.
Yeah, I celebrated it with whole family from different generations.
The celebration was held in Ritz-Carlton Ballroom Hotel and My super-close family was the host of the event.

My family, uncles, aunties and cousins worn same outfits ^.^ Finally I have new cheongsam!


I did a very simple makeup because I was in rush and didn't have plenty time to use falsie and so on. This time my elder sister curled my hair and friends of mine said this hairstyle is suitable for me

Etude House AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot [review]

Hello guyyyssss╰(^__^)╯
Happy Chinese New Year for those of you who celebrated it!
How was your CNY celebration? I celebrated my CNY in Jakarta, and I just got home this evening :D I guess I'll post about it tomorrow.

So, this product is my secret weapon to drive away pimples! Who doesn't like pimple or acne? *raise my hand VERY high* (✖╭╮✖)
Pimple could be so frustrating and annoying when it comes and haunts my life *hyperbole*
If you followed my blog since last year, you might be know my post about previous version of AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot from Etude House.

Yeah, I love this product and this time I tried the upgrade version of AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot Extreme.

AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot
Non comedogenic (won't clog your pores)
Read my previous review HERE

This product consists of:
Pink Powder Spot (15ml)
Powder Water (15ml)
Cotton swabs



*Packaging*
I like green color for particular products with medication purpose. It looks so relaxing, soothing and refreshing :p lol, i dunno why.
The pink powder spot made from sturdy glass, meanwhile the pink powder water made from plastic. This set along with cotton swabs.

*Descriptions*
Formulated with Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress, Ac Clinic delivers trouble care. Pink Powder alleviates trouble swelling on contact to minimize damage. Comes with cotton swabs for application.



Non-Comedogenic & Dermatologist Tested

*Direction*

Do not shake bottle. After facial cleansing, allow powder to settle at the bottom. Perpendicularly dip cotton swab into bottle to draw powder from bottle. Use swab to dab trouble spots and acne with swab tip to coat with powder.

the fullsize product of AC Clinic Pink Powder Water


Application sequence: 
Foam Cleanser --> Toner --> Gel Lotion --> Red Spot Balm --> Pink Powder Spot --> Pink Powder Water --> Calming Mist


Well, to be honest I don't really understand what the main purpose of Pink Powder Water is =___= Sometimes I'm confused how to differ the pink powder spot and pink powder water. However, usually I using pink powder water first before pink powder spot.
(wrong sequence). BUT, it still works well. LOL


I also captured the descriptions behind its box.. Sorry if my photo isn't clear and sharp enough (˘_˘") My camera doesn't has wide-photo feature, so yeah.. I edited it and no wonder it looks so disorganized..

click to enlarge

Pink Powder Spot: has pinkish-colored powder
Pink Powder Water: has whitish-colored powder

*Scent*
It scents like medicine, as for me it doesn't bothering at all.

*Performance*
---> to minimizing appearance of blemishes, I using pink powder water alone
---> to diminishing new pimple or angry and big pimple, I using pink powder water and pink powder spot at the same time.

This product works wonderfully for me! At first, they didn't really work well.. but after a week surprisingly they could diminish new pimples and angry pimples well and help me to minimize appearance of blemishes (/‾▿‾)/ ♥♥ MAJOR LOVE!

To extinguish pimples and blemishes, all you need it PATIENCE and HYGIENE.
And don't forget to drink at least 8 cup of water everyday. A very important and simplest way to keep face clear from acne :3

let me show you the result..
I'm amazed with the result.. ♥ I only need 2 days to dries up the pimples! :D
Surely, for big acne you will need more than 2 days, I believe.. *__*

For blemishes, usually I need up to 4 weeks to minimize appearance of them.. At least my blemishes aren't as obvious as before! 


What I love <3
+ Works well to diminish my pimples
+ Help me to dries up pimples
+ Minimizing appearance of blemishes
+ Quite hygienic and convenient
+ Non-comedogenic
+ No allergic reaction

What I hate </3
- Its performances toward big acne, pimples, and zits might be different. For me, it works very well for (normal size) pimples and need more than 3 days to kick off stubborn and big acne.
- You need to leave it at least a night.. so the powder will fall down at the bottom of the bottle and ready to use.

Rating: 4.5/5

Recommended? YES
Repurchase? Yes =]


Where you can buy this product? I recommend you to buy at Rie Butik 
One of the trusted online shops in Indonesia (^____^) Just ask them if they have this product in stock!
Anyway, please take a note.. if this product works for me, it's doesn't mean will works 100% for you as well. Skincare is about trial and error :)

Thanks for reading guys :D
Hope you find this review is quite helpful!
