ElishaCoy Premium Gold Mineral BB SPF 45, PA+++ Review

I am back with another ElishaCoy's BB cream, it is the ElishaCoy Premium Gold Mineral BB Cream!! Not going to delve too much into ElishaCoy's brand introduction or history this time, those who are interested can check out my other reviews on their BB creams (Always Triple / Always Nuddy 24).

The Premium Gold Mineral BB cream stands on the luxurious end of their BB cream range, with caviar, royal jelly extract, camellia japonica flower extract and deep sea water in its ingredient list. Other ingredients also includes trehalose (high water retaintion capabilities) and marine collagen to keep skin moisturized and wrinkles at bay. On top of that, it also contains gold ingredients!!

This BB cream is meant for whitening and anti-aging. It spreads and blend well, with a slight floral scent. FYI, Always Triple smells kinda like incense and Always Nuddy 24 smells like paint to me....-.-" So yea, Premium Gold BB cream is the better smelling one of the lot.

The Premium Gold Mineral BB cream is like an upgraded version of Always Triple, with a higher SPF of 45 (compared to Always Triple's SPF of 30) and better packaging. It comes with a pump dispenser unlike the others which sports the tube-design. The problem with the tube-design is that i always have a mess at the outlet. Really annoying sometimes, especially when the excess BB cream gets dried up in the grooves of the cap...erk!!.....

The coverage and staying power is probably better or on par with Always Triple (~ 6-7 hours depending on the environment). Unlike Always Triple and Always Nuddy 24 which has pink undertones, the Premium Gold Mineral BB cream has yellow undertones.  The downside is that like Always Triple, the Premium Gold Mineral BB cream tend to feel a little heavy on the skin and the oil control is fair ( i need to blot every 4-5 hours).

All in all, i do not see the whitening or anti-wrinkle effects, but the strong coverage and staying power is convincing enough for repurchasing. Would recommend Premium Gold Mineral BB cream for fair-skinned individuals as the shade offered are quite light. Price-wise, you can get Premium Gold Mineral BB at John Little or on Qoo10 at SGD 28.50 for full volume and at SGD 13.50 for the 15ml trial tube.

Thanks for reading and hope this post helps!!
