I’m glad I waited long enough to test drive the Ettusais Mineral BB Cream because I really was in love with it but it was during late summer/early autumn that I wore this often and the humidity was still quite high. It gave me a slightly dewy look and controlled my T-zone very well while offering light to medium coverage. I looked fresh at the end of the day so I thought my 1,800JPY (USD23) was very well spent.
The 03 Healthy Skin shade suits my NC25 skin tone to a T (it’s also the darkest shade in the range) and it pairs extremely well with my Paul & Joe loose powder.
I’ve never paid attention to Ettusais before and thought it was a cute drugstore brand but had nothing outstanding. In fact, it has counters in Singapore so I always had this impression it was kind of pricey though run-of-the-mill.
The formula is non-comedogenic and fragrance free which is great for those with clogged pores and sensitive skin. However, alcohol is the fifth ingredient in a relatively short list which made me hesitate to buy it but I got it anyway because it looked amazing shade-wise. I think this is key to controlling oil on my skin but I didn’t get any adverse reaction from this at all.
I used this again recently when the weather turned cold and dry and this BB cream did not work well for me as it was too drying and made my skin feel tight at the end of the day. I would definitely bring this along with me when I visit Singapore because it would be perfect for hot and humid weather.
