Baby Choux Base Review

Today I finally have another review for you~ ^-^
Something that I almost used up by now, it's Etude House's Baby Choux Base! :D

Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base
#02 Berry Choux
Price: 12,60$ on Amazon (new packaging only)
Amount: 25g (35g in the new packaging)

Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base

I bought this while I was in Korea last year, simply because the packaging was too sweet~
A sales assistant helped me pick it, and we had quite some trouble finding the right one. 
She told me the Baby Choux Base was made for people with oily skin, and because I told her I have very dry and sensitive skin she said it could dry out my skin even more.
However, after testing every single BB cream that was fit for dry skin in the store on the back of my hand, we came to the conclusion that all the BB creams...were too dark for me ;-;
And here I thought at least in Korea I'd be able to buy make-up...

So in the end, I got the Baby Choux Base anyways because it was light enough for my skin tone, and apparantly the #02 Base is especially good for pale skin as it brightens the skin up a bit.

As you can see on the packaging, it has an SPF too, which is great because I get sunburns so easily~
especially on my nose. ^^''

It comes in a small, adorable jar, which I usually don't like that much because it tends to be not very hygenic.

It already comes with a small spatula, which is great 

It has a very specific scent to it, kind of sweet...yet still a bit chemical.
Very powdery, somehow.

The texture is quite thick and feels a bit grainy, which reminds me of peelings. I guess that is supposed to help with making your skin look soft.

You only need to use a very small amount to cover your whole face, just like BB cream.
Which is great, because that way the product will last you a lot longer 

As you (hopefully) can see, it brightens up my skin a lot.  The colour is really light~ which makes sense, since it's intended for people with pale skin, but even for me it's so light that it looks quite unnatural if I only wear the baby choux base.
But since it's just a base, it's intended to be worn underneath BB cream or other foundation, and for that it works really well. Usually foundation or BB cream is always a tad bit too dark for me, but with the baby choux base underneath, it always has the right colour. And it appears more soft too, even when my skin is very dry.

I love it~ It was not expensive, and yet it works so well for me.
And it lasts so long too~ I have been using it for over a year now and it's still not empty!

Maybe you have noticed something different about this blog post....

Those cute emoticons! 
They're from Little Miss Paintbrush and were distributed on a blog post on
They're absolutely adorable, and look a lot better than my usual usage of ^-^and :D
Tell me what you think about them in the comments below~
Also, what do you think of this product? Do you have any Etude House products yourself?
If yes, which ones are your favourites?  ^^ 

On another note, I might not be able to post something next week, as I'm moving to Taipei on February the 23rd, so I'll probably be really~ busy with packing and preparing everything. So please don't mind my short hiatus, I'll be posting lots of updates when I'm in Taipei. Hopefully, I will have many interesting stories to share then.
If you want to keep updated, feel free to follow me on my Instagram and Tumblr , I'll be posting daily photos or short diary posts on Tumblr . Right now, there's mainly photos from my Korea trip last year, but hopefully you'll enjoy those too.
