Etude House Shini Star BB Lotion

Etude House Shini Star BB Lotion is a limited offer product.
I tried another BB cream last week. A friend (I consider her a friend more than just a customer since we’ve been transacting for almost two years and she’s very patient with me!) from Singapore ordered something from Etude House. I told her that the shop gives away a poster of Shinee for any purchase of Shini Star product. She ordered a BB cream and I got her the poster. When I saw that it is “colorless”, I purchased one to try.

Etude House Shini Star BB Lotion

The Etude House Shini Star BB Lotion has SPF 20++. It has a “whitening” effect and also “colorless”. The latter probably means that its okay for cool and warm skin tones. The bb lotion itself is not “colorless” or transparent – like what I thought it would be.
My favorite BB cream has no SPF value. I just love it because it blends well and it looks natural on the skin. I’ll write a post on it one of these days.
Anyway, Shini Star BB Lotion is easy to apply. It has a more liquid consistency compared to other BB’s that I’ve used. I guess that’s why it says “lotion” instead of “cream”. The first time I applied it on my face, I was a bit disappointed. I thought it didn’t cover well. On the second day, I just tried to blend it well and it was okay. Here’s a before and after application picture starring my sun-damaged late 30’s forehead and chicken pox scarred chubby cheeks ;p I got the chicken pox on July 4, 1988. Then President Aquino was thinking twice about declaring the day a non-working holiday. I was already at school when they announced “No Classes” – !@#$%^&*!
Before and after

I just use my usual loose powder on top of the BB lotion. After about five hours, my forehead was a just a bit oily but not too oily that I would use an oil blotting paper. It must be the weather.
Oh, I think you can use Shini Star BB Lotion on your lazy days. I go for it for the sun protection factor. With its packaging, I guess the product is intended for teenage girls and women in their early 20s — which means it’s not really for my age bracket ;p


  1. Hi ate Betchay!
    I wondered po if you have na the prices of my long list 🙂 Paquote naman po sakin ate Betchay. Thank you po 🙂

  2. If you’ve noticed the before & after picture, me pagkakaiba nga..I should try it next time, a BB lotion not a cream….
    BTW, Ms. Betchay, I already placed my order (Skin Food) at your Cosmekor website..So excited about it since I’m a new user of SF plus the price is right as compare here in PINAS, its a little bit expensive…Thanks!

  3. Cool blog You have here…accidentally stumbles across your blog instantly fell in-love with your blog~~hehe..but I can’t seem to open the kpop link thou~~

  4. ate Betchay, nong nakita ko packaging and poster ng Shinee, pakiwari ko kasama din sa target market yung mga tipong gaya ng Mama ko at mga ajumma from Japan… wala lang.. naalala ko lang sila sa Nami Island… kkk… si Mama naman parang gusto nya din mga cute stuffs lately. mas kilala pa nya ang Shinee… lagi daw kase nasa arirang non, hehe.. pati pala Ukiss..

  5. Hi Ms. Betchay!
    When you say ‘it doesn’t cover well’ ano po ang ibig sabihin nun? Balak ko po kasing sumubok ng mga BB Cream. Nagco-compare lang po ako para alam ko kung anong bibilhin ko. After nyo po bang lagyan ng loose powder, napansin ko po na medyo nag smoothen + lighten yung skin tone nyo. Pag naglagay po ba kayo nito, kasama din po ang leeg? Salamat po. ^^

    1. Hi Camille! Yung picture, wala pang loose powder… Nung una parang hindi masyado maganda cover nya pero nung sumunod eh okay na siya.

  6. Hi Ate Betchay,
    Jay here. I was wondering kung pwede ako magpapurchase ng bb cream/lotion for men w/o credit card payment? i haven’t applied for it yet kasi eh. Pwede bang sa sister nyo nalang ibigay ung payment?haha. At anong preferred way of delivering the payment to her? Any recommended type of bb cream/lotion for men? di kasi ako satisfied sa concealer. From MNL, PH here.
    Thanks. 🙂
