Etude House updates its Precious Mineral BB Cream this Spring with a new Cotton Fix formula. The Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fix has an SPF 30 and a fluffy, silky texture which supposedly feels as soft as cotton.
I didn’t really love the original formula of Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream so I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about Cotton Fix but I decided to give a whirl.
Here’s a few thoughts!
Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fix SPF 30 is available in two shades selections and comes in a tube with a pump attached. I think it deserves to be mentioned I dislike this packaging as I find I have to pump two or three times sometimes to get product out of the tube. A squeeze tube would suit me just fine, I really don’t need the pump dispenser, this just adds drama to get the product out.
Etude House dubbed this Cotton Fix because the formula supposedly has a soft, fluffy texture like cotton. It’s more a thinner creamy consistency with a silky feel versus a fluffy one. I think that’s slightly misleading since I think fluffy and I think mousse-like and that isn’t what you get here. It is however, a creamier thinner texture that applies and blends easily onto skin. The formula supposedly contains Cotton Veil Powder, Pearl Extract, and Cotton Veil Powder. It’s formulated as an anti-aging, whitening, and sun protecting BB Cream.
I purchased the second shade selection, Natural Beige, which is a creamy beige shade with a softer peach undertone. This would be best suited for medium fair skin types with warmer undertones. The formula doesn’t technically offer long term whitening but will ease dullness so skin appears brighter and healthier.
It is water based so it has a moisturizing feel but isn’t greasy or oily nor does it accentuate my drier areas. It doesn’t feel heavy on my skin and has a lightweight texture that can be built up easily for full coverage. I’d say coverage ranges from sheer to medium depending how much you apply. As with many Etude House BB Creams it has an excellent wear time so from morning until night it stays on my face without fading, oxidizing, or disappearing.
Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fix is quite nice but nothing I absolutely love. I’ve tried so many BB Creams at this point but I still know what I like and something seems to be missing from this formula. I didn’t feel like it gave me that airbrushed, perfect finish that some of my other BB Creams offer. It’s a nice formula all in all but not one of the best I’ve personally tried.
It’s available now on E-bay as well as a variety of online shops.
Would love to hear your thoughts!
