[REVIEW] Etude House BB dation + Real Hand Touch Special Kit

Thanks to Sky for getting this BBdation from Korea for meh! This is part of Etude House's Lovely Doll Doll collection ^^

From the box:

-BBdation - Revolutionary Formula
BBdation, a new revolutionary face make-up product that combines the perfect seamless fitting of BB Cream and luminous coverage of Foundation, its formula contains mineral powder coated with Hydro Essence Gel that nourishes and brightens complexion. Application of this makeup makes skin appear healthier, smoother, and dramatically refined.

-Real Hand Touch - Revolutionary Applicator
Real Hand Touch, a revolutionary applicator for BBdation. Simply push the button to experience the applicator's sponge glide effortlessly across skin for seamless blendability and perfect coverage. Also comes with the benefit of 8,500 micro-vibrations for healthy stimulation and soft and supple skin.

Both the BBdation and the applicator comes in a box like this!

Has SPF40, whitening & anti-wrinkle like other Etude BB creams and for the first time, "Zero Defect Skin". My colour is W13 ^^

Swatched with the applicator (left) and finger (right). I think its super obvious that it looks more even on the left and also has a better coverage (for some reason).

Swatches I took! 
(I know, the skin colour on my hand looks really pale :/)

And check out the Real Hand Touch applicator!

Real Hand Touch applicator is a motorised sponge with supposingly 8,500 micro-vibrations! It helps with blood circulations of the face, and can even massage to reduce size of the face! Most importantly, it gives an even and dewy finish (with use of BBdation), perfect for K-pop celebrities look ^^

Measurements of the sponge ^^
The tip actually reaches more precisely near the sides of the nose and eyes :)

Batteries operated but it comes with a set of them. AAA sized :)

The BBdation has a super silky texture but its supposed to give a healthy glowy look, so it has a dewy finish, almost like a BB cream with Volumer already mixed inside. Well you can always mattify it if you wish. The coverage is not very thick but its good enough to get the K-pop celebrity glow. As for its UV protection, I think its quite enough (depending if you're out in the sun a lot) as its in-between the usual precious mineral BB creams that has SPF30 and the pretty new SUN BB that has SPF 50. The smell is great, like the SUN BB haha. I like the BBdation in general!

The Real Hand Touch applicator is definitely super fun to use and a joy to own. I mean, look at all these interesting stuff Etude House is releasing now. (Yeah, the 3 step volumecara was the first of the "interesting" series to me). At first the vibration may be a little weird (like a foreign feeling) but after awhile you'll get used to it and infact feel like its a massaging tool! It gave a surprisingly even finish on my face and it blended out really well with no streaks the usual foundation brush would leave. The sponge is delightfully soft~ I think its quite a value-for-money product because both products only costed 35k won.

Do note that it would prolong the product lifespan if you store the batteries and the applicator seperately after each use ^^


*update* Etude stores in Singapore just released the BBdation alone and the BBdation Special Kit (BBdation + Real Hand Touch)! Price of BBdation alone is $32.90 while the Special Kit costs $69.90. The Real Hand Touch applicator is however not sold alone. And 2 pcs of regular replacement sponges costs $10.90.

Hope this review helped! ^^

  5. Hello, fenni
    U have a nice review here :)
    so informative, complete with pistures too. Just the info I need.
    I'm a fan of Etude, I use their Precious mineral bright fit bb cream and I like it so much. And I could not help but curious about this new product too.
    Thank u for sharing review
    Btw I'm ur new follower, hope u like to follow each other^^ U can find me at:

  6. I just bought these bbdation last week and the sales lady suggested me the # 1 shade.the next day i tried it but it i think it looks so white and oily for me,plus its kinda cakey..plz help me what will i do.i dnt want to waste my money:(

    1. I think you should go back for an exchange :( or maybe mix it with foundations of darker shades or maybe use as a highlighter? Try to exchange for a darker colour first I guess, instead of wasting money on something you don't like. You can mattify with powder if you think its too oily :)

  7. i just purchased this a while ago! it's worth 1,678 pesos. so excited to try it! :)

  8. Are there parabens in the BBDation?

  9. Thanks for the review! Was looking all over the internet for a review/swatches =D I wish they would sell them separately cuz I'm only interested in the applicator >.<

    1. I know right >.< hope they will sell it seperately in the future! Thanks for dropping by my blog :)

  12. How is it look on you? Great review, btw, i like very much.. actually i am very curiouse about this bb dation.. not sure whether buy this or not.

    just followed you, mind to visit my blog as well?

    nice to know you! hugs*

  13. LOVEEEE this review about Etude House's BB Dation! I just wanna ask, is there another type of sponge for this? Or just one kind? Cause I think I saw another type of sponge :O And how many refill sponges did you buy? :)

    1. Hi Jaselyn~

      Yep, there's another type of sponge for it, called the aura sponge. I think it gives a more glowy look as compared to the regular sponge. Havn't gotten around buying any refill sponges yet, hehe.


  14. do you know how to clean the sponge ??

    1. Hi there!

      You can pluck the whole sponge out and wash it with brush cleansing soap! Try pressing down one side of the sponge, the other side would pop up and you can remove it for cleaning. You can also buy refills when it gets too worn.

      Hope that helps!

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*

It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*

It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…

[REVIEW] SKIN79 O2 BB Cleanser

Hi! I'm gonna be reviewing SKIN79's new cleanser, the O2 BB cleanser! Thanks to the nice people from StarAsia for sending me one of these! ;)

I've always wanted to get a cleanser that removes BB cream, cos BB creams actually clogs your pores if you don't remove it properly, leading to pimples and other terrible skin conditions. (I've been a victim, so I understand :/) Never gotten around buying it though. If you didn't know, SKIN79 is the first and leading BB cream brand in Korea, and they are readily available in SG's stores for some time already. Only recently, they changed their ambassadors to a girl group I really LOVE. Brown Eyed Girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh My Miryo!!
Anyway, this cleanser removes the stickiest and toughest BB creams thoroughly and at the same time moisturizes the skin. Its important that a cleanser does not strip the skin of its natural oil and moisture while thoroughly cleansing. Infact, it removes other makeup too! Check out i…
