However, since I've been reading a lot of raves about BB Creams, I finally decided to give it a try. I got the Precious Mineral BB Cream from Etude House since the label says that it promotes silky complexion with pearl infused sheer coverage and it contains adenosine and arbutin for anti-wrinkle and whitening. Plus, it has SPF for UV protection. Well, judging from the label, this particular type of BB Cream seems to offer more efficacy than the other BB Creams sold in the market.
Ok, so I've been using this product for a month now , as in everyday, and contrary to my initial assumption, it has lighter consistency than foundation and it does not feel sticky nor itchy ...at all. Of course, it ISN'T foundation to begin with, but more of a tinted moisturizer. And so far, I have not experienced any break out yet.
Here's how Precious Mineral BB Cream works on my skin. This is particularly the skin at the back of my hand... I don't have anyone at the moment who can take photos of me so I couldn't possibly use my face for this illustration.:D

|there, see the glow?:) in real life, upon closer inspection, i could literally see my skin glittering|
Just a short anecdote to end this post, there was one time when the amount of BB Cream that was pumped out was too much for my use and so as not to waste it, I had no choice but to put it on my boyfriend's face who, luckily, was with me during that moment. Yes the man in him struggled but I insisted and told him I wouldn't want such great product to be put to waste. Anyway, the cream gives sheer coverage so I told him that it wouldn't make such drastic change on his complexion. He relented and to cut the story, the next day he asked for some BB Cream to be applied again on his face...boy, he loved it!haha...now that's another story...:D
