[Review] Etude House BB Magic Balm SPF30

This is my first Etude house foundation and my first time trying a foundation that are stored in a jar. They included a small foundation brush with the foundation. 

They claim to provide natural looking coverage that nourishes, soothes and correct your skin tone. One of the main reason to why I picked this is because it's for sensitive skin and clear complexion. 


I have sensitive, super dry and acne prone skin. 

You can see it cover my redness well and makes the small holes less visible.
But the only problem is that it's still not nourishing enough for my dry skin, and the brush they included would  easily leave some strokes. So I have tried with another foundation brush and it worked better than shown on the photo from above.

It last for a good 6 hours for me.

Note: If you have read my previous posts, you will know I recently got a scar on my face. 
I removed it with photo editor and lighten the photo up.


There is only one shade for this foundation and I personally think it's actually two shade too light for my skin tone. But somehow once a while I will think it looked right... I think it depends a little on the lighting too. Like the above photo, the main light source is more focused on my face, so it might get slightly darker on other area.

My thought

I love the coverage from this BB balm, it's one of the best one I have tried so far and it's not too drying to be compared to other I have tried. It should be fine for peoples that don't have super dry skin like me. If it were not 2 shades too light for my skin tone, it might become one of my favorite product! I also recommend to use your own foundation brush, you might want to give theirs a try before using your own.

Another problem is that because you will use the foundation brush on the BB balm, so it's better to wash the foundation brush after each use and make sure that your face is clean. Because it's easy to transfer dirt to the bb balm trough the foundation brush.

Recommend to girls...
