Etude House Dr Oil Solution Anti-Shine BB Lotion

Part 1 review of this haul! The Dr Oil Solution Anti-Shine BB Lotion.


Lavender, Grapefuit Extract, Orange Oil in the formulation? Sounds yummy?

With a pump dispenser that makes dispensing hygienic, you gotta love this packaging!

Etude House Dr Oil Solution Anti-Shine BB Lotion SPF20 PA++
Coverage: Sheer
Texture: Very liquidfied
Shade: It is so sheer that it hardly gives any coverage thus suitable for most skin tones. 
Undertone: Slightly yellow
Fragrance: None. 
Oil-Control: More than 6 hours
Dewy-ness: A little dewy
Overall Comments: Honestly, to me this isn't a BB Cream, maybe thats why its not named a BB Cream. It is a tinted lotion. A very liquified tinted lotion with SPF properties. When applied alone, it gives a really sheer coverage. So sheer that you might hate it. BUT the amazing property of this BB Lotion is that its oil control is AMMMMMMMMMMMazing! Its oil control is so good that I really think its comparable to MAC Oil Control Lotion which is not available in Singapore! I've been wearing this BB Lotion by mixing it with another bb cream / liquid foundation that lacks a wee bit of oil control and I'm really loving it! For those who are looking for a good oil control lotion, it has to be this!

(Anonymous): Hi

Do you know if this range of products is available in the stores in Singapore? I'm so keen to try out this product and the Dual Primer, but I'm not sure if I've ever seen them being sold in any of the Etude House outlets.

Thanks! :D

do you think i can use this after primer, then use a 2 way foundation over it?
or will it be too thick?

Dear Kimoko,
I have found your LJ today via Google and all day long instead of working, read it through (shame on me :-)
I have a question regarding this oil controlling lotion – I found also Dr.Oil Solution Shine Free Dual Primer. How do you think – is it a good idea to use them together? Or it’s high enough to use just the lotion? I’m going to order it online, and unfortunately it takes a long time to get it in here, so I wanted to be sure before I make the order.
Or it will be better to buy the powder?

Thank you in advance!

Big kiss from Moscow!
I hope that you will inspire me for more shopping LOL.

Wed, Aug. 11th, 2010 01:39 am (UTC)

Wow! All the way from Moscow! Greetings from Sunny Singapore! =D

sadly, the shine free primer has tea tree oil so i can't use it but i heard from my best friend whom i've given the primer to, she said that the primer really works in oil control! I reckon, if they are used together, oil control will be super duper good! =D

the powder has tea tree oil too so i can't comment on it. ;)

Wed, Aug. 11th, 2010 05:57 pm (UTC)

hello~~ a new reader of yours XD (may i add you??)
im in a desperate attempt to look for oil controlling primer of some sort and its good to know that Dr. Oil seems to live up to its rave.
I should definitely give it a try.

so im not the only one who is ALLERGIC TO TEA TREE OIL. i tried using it once... i was terrified. my skin was itching, stinging, red, AND SWELLING!!!
and perfect how this bb lotion doesn't have that ingredient.

Thu, Aug. 12th, 2010 01:25 am (UTC)

sure! go ahead and add me and i'll add you back! =D

actually, allergy to tea tree is not that uncommon. hehe

and, in this range of products, the primer and pressed powder do have tea tree oil content in them which is so dissapointing as i have heard good raves about those products! =(

Thanks! :) foolhardygirl@gmail.com

kimoko: Re: question! :)

(Anonymous): bb lotion+bb cream?

i've read you blog, and i find it so helpful.. i'm torn between dr. oil bb lotion and precious mineral bb cream in sheer silky... you said you mix this one with another bb cream to get a good coverage... so which one is first? apply dr.oil bb lotion first, then bb cream? i'm planning to buy this bb lotion and the precious mineral bb cream in sheer silky.. i hope they will compliment with one another...

kimoko: Re: bb lotion+bb cream?

i have 2 methods to wear this product.

1) to mix it with my bb cream/foundation prior application

2) apply it before my base makeup (bb cream / foundation)
