Review Of Ettusais BB Mineral Cream & My 2013 BB Cream Wish List

I love using BB cream as i prefer light and simple makeup when i go out and BB cream meets my makeup needs perfectly as the BB cream brands that i have been using so far usually offers about light to medium coverage which is sufficient to cover any skin flaws i have without the need to apply concealer and i can just step out of the house in a jiffy if i'm rushing for time. My first BB  cream was from Lancome and i love using it. As i wanted to try out what other brands of BB cream offer being beauty products lover, i have also tried BB cream from other brands like LancomeBiotherm, Clinique, Vichy and Ettusais which is the latest BB cream i have been using. I did not bother to do a review of Clinique and Vichy BB cream as i did not really like it and prefers sharing only products that works on my skin with readers of my blog. Read on for my review of the Ettusais BB Mineral Cream which i enjoys using and my latest BB cream wish list ;)

Review of Ettusais BB Mineral cream SPF 30

I have been using this made in Japan product for more than half a year and love its lightweight texture. It comes in 3 shades and i'm using its (10 Light) shade and my friend who has a darker skin tone bought the (30 Healthy) shade when we were shopping for Ettusais products together. It provides light coverage, spreads on easily on my skin and feels light and refreshing on my skin. It also does not cause any breakouts and provides good oil control on my T-zone area. My friend who has also been using it for several months also love using it and has received compliments from her colleagues about her glowing skin when she was using the product.

I'm finishing the BB cream soon and was planning to make a repurchase but have been distracted by the introductions of new BB cream from my favorite beauty brand like Clarins and other reputable skincare brands like Philosophy and Kiehl which seems to offer better sunscreen protection and coverage  than Ettusais BB Mineral cream (S$38 for 40g tube) although at a higher retail price. I would still repurchase the Ettusais BB Mineral cream after i have tried a sample of the new products and if it does not work as well on my skin or if i do not wish to spend more than S$40 on a BB cream. However i would not mind spending more money on a good quality product that gives me even better results and does not cause any skin irritations.

Read on for the new brands of BB cream which have caught my attention and are in my Wish List of BB cream :)
