Review: Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base

Do you want to have a baby's soft and smooth skin like Sulli from f(x)???
If so, Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base is the right answer!!

So.. A few weeks ago, I got this product and other Etude House beauty products
from their Media Gathering in Etude Time 3 Surabaya.
Thanks so much Etude House Indonesia!! 

Actually it comes in 3 shades..
#01 Mint Choux (suitable for reddish skin tone),
#02 Berry Choux (suitable for pale skin tone),
#03 Peach Choux (suitable for dull / yellowish skin tone).

And as you can see, I got mine in Berry Choux~ (^ε^)

The ingredients~
It works as a primer, as well as a moisturizer for me, and it also has SPF 25 PA++.
So, this is my favorite base for now! (^~^)

It comes in an opaque glass jar with a plastic lid. It's quite heavy and fragile, but last week I brought this product when I was in Pacet for retreat, and nothing happened! So, you must be careful when you bring this product especially for travelling errrr -__-
but the packaging is so cute, eh? lol (≧▽≦)

It contains 25 g~
Too bad it doesn't have a spatula inside, so you have to dip your fingers to scoop out the product. Make sure that your fingers are completely clean! But I prefer to use a cotton swab (Q-tip) instead of my fingers. Ughh I think it would be more hygienic if they provide a spatula, right?? (≧д≦)

It smells like strawberry cream, so yummy and sweet~ but somehow it's quite strong for my nose!! But fortunately it's okay for my super sensitive skin, so.. it doesn't make me break out yayy!! (*^▽^*)

As you can see, the texture of this base is smooth, creamy, slightly fluffy and bouncy, exactly like the filling of a real choux (cream puff)!! Woahhh.. actually it makes me want to lick it so bad lol (≧▽≦)

At first, it's rather difficult for me to blend this creamy base on my skin. So, I prefer to use my foundation brush instead of my fingers, because it's easier to blend it~

Here is the comparison on my hand~

And here is the comparison on my face~

Usually I only use this base and a bit of powder for school everyday, but sometimes I also use my regular BB cream after I use this base, and I noticed that my BB cream lasted longer throughout the day.
It would correct my skin tone and smooth out my skin texture, so.. my face looks brighter and gives a healthy glow after I use this base.
It would also cover my pimples and my large pores a bit (without clogged them). And the oil control is great because my T-zone started a little oily after 4 - 5 hours later!
Overall.. this product is suitable for all skin-types, but I think it's more perfect for oily & combination skin (like me), because the oil control of this product is AWESOME!! 

 Love :
✩ Great texture.
✩ Has SPF 25 PA++
✩ Not sticky.
✩ Great oil control.
✩ Very light on my skin.
✩ Moisturize my skin.
✩ Cover my large pores & my pimples pretty well.
 Brighten my face and gives a healthy glow.
 Doesn't break me out.

 Hate :
✩ The jar is quite heavy and fragile.
✩ Unhygienic, because it doesn't have a spatula inside.

So, have you ever tried any Etude House products from their latest line, Sweet Recipe??

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day, girls ^^

    1. Yeah, me too! <3 OMG really?! So why I didn't get it? Ughh actually I got this product from an event held by Etude House in my country! o_O

  9. Fungsinya bisa sebagai primer juga yah selain foundi?
    Sebenernya aku agak ambigu ini makeup base dengan fungsi semacam foundi/bb cream ato lebih ke primer
    Thanx yah buat review nya :D

    1. ini sebenernya lebih ke arah primer sih, jadi setelah pake ini bisa pake bb cream/foundi for more coverage, tapi kalo mau lebih natural sih pake base ini aja + bedak udah cukup sih hehe
      sama-sama, semoga membantu yaa :)

  10. km beli produk ini di gerai resmi atau di online shop, chingu?
