Review: Etude House Dr. Oil Solution Anti Shine BB Lotion SPF 20 PA++

Good day to you, fellow beauty bloggers or followers! Today, I will be reviewing a product from Etude House that I had just purchased a few weeks ago. I though I should review this product now because I have already used it for around 2 weeks. I always give it a good length of time before doing a proper review on it.

-Etude House-
Dr. Oil Solution Anti Shine BB Lotion SPF 20/PA++
Shine control BB cream supplies moist, flawless complexion coverage. Oil free/Paraben Free/Talc Free.

This picture is taken from kimoko's blog because I lost my box when I purchased it, so I was too lazy to type the whole thing. Well, credits still goes to kimoko for this picture, thank you.

How I use It
I use it as a makeup primer and makeup base. Using one pump of the product, I blend it with my fingers all over my face.

What I like About It
  • It has a pump to dispense the product, so I can maintain its hygiene.
  • It's quite small, making it easy to carry in a travel case.
  • The texture is not thick, so it feels very light on my face.
  • Blends effortlessly into my face.
  • Brightens my face
  • Really mattifies my face, especially my T-Zone are for 3 hours!
  • Did NOT break me out!
  • It's oil free
  • It has SPF 20/PA ++
  • Readily available in most Etude House counters.

What I Hate About It
  • Sometimes causes my skin to flake or have dry patches
  • Not sure if this would suit darker skin tones
  • Sometimes when I over applied it, it gives a whitish cast
  • Coverage is sheer

Overall, I really like this product because it has similar properties to a tinted moisturizer and is very good at controlling my excess oil. Well done, Etude House, I salute you. 


  1. i'm using it too and i like it! :) good review! but are we supposed to put on make up on top of the bb cream? usually i just put on the bb cream then go to school already..haha

  2. Aurelia, you're can skip powder after BB cream if you have dry skin. It's always enough to use BB creams for me also ^^ However, for those with very oily skin, they do sometimes set their BB creams with a mattifying powder so they look less 'shiny'.. ^^
