Etude House BB Cream Review

Etude House has a few different bb creams, but my favorite is the BB Magic Cream. The best part about this cream is that it comes in three different shades. It also has an oily and normal skin version, which means if you have oily or acne prone skin, you can still safely use this bb cream without worrying about breakouts!

The particular tube I purchased is for oily skin and is the lightest shade available.

Application

Application of the product is simple. The cap is removed and you press the nozzle to dispense the product. It does come out sort of fast, so you have to be careful not to get excess cream on your hands (there is a bit too much on my hand in the picture!).

Blending

This cream is not thick; it is actually runny for a bb cream. It spreads out smooth. It also is beige tint and not grey tinted like similar creams. It does oxidize to a slightly darker color, but it usually blends right into the skin as long as you purchase a matching shade.

Coverage

This cream provides sufficient coverage. It covers redness, pores and minor imperfections, but if you have major problems, such as dark circles or scars, you probably need a concealer. As you can see from the image, it did fade my scar, but did not completely cover it.

Overall

This product is good for people who don't want a bb cream with a grey tint. The Etude House BB Magic Cream provides good coverage and has three shades, which is great for people with a light to medium skin tone. However, if you have darker skin, you will not be able to find a match because this product is targeted toward South Korean women, who tend to have lighter skin tones.

If you want a bb cream designed for oily skin, this may very well be your product. It blends easily and does not take long to apply to your entire face. If you are looking for heavy coverage, you may need to look elsewhere. I have used three tubes of this product and enjoyed every minute of it. It lasts long and is one of my two "go-to" bb creams, along with the Skin79 Hot Pink.
