Etude House added another cushion product to their line up
which is the AC Cleanup Mild BB Cushion!
Hinted from the name, yes it is a BB cushion for acne-prone skin.
And I was more than excited to jump on this product since I occasionally suffer from break outs.
SPF 50+ PA+++ / 14g
(8,000KRW for refill)
Did you guys notice that Etude House is simplifying their packaging design?
I thought Real Powder Cushion was already simple enough
but AC Cleanup Mild BB Cushion is much simpler and more plain.
The cushion case is compact and slim which makes a perfect travel-friendly cushion.
The refill is compatible with Etude House Real Powder Cushion.
Color system is the same as Real Powder Cushion but the shades run slightly darker.
I fall in the shade in between MAC NC25-30 and use #23 in Korean shades,
and Natural Beige for AC Cleanup Mild BB Cushion matches my complexion perfectly.
However, I use Honey Beige for the Real Powder Cushion.
All ingredients are noncomedogenic which means it won't clog your pores and won't cause any break outs.

Low to medium coverage.
I expected more coverage since AC Cleanup Mild BB Cushion is targeting acne-prone skin,
and acne-prone skin users generally desire high coverage from foundations.
But the coverage is quite sheer and natural.
Texture & Finish
It's not only light-weight but it's also so freaking comfortable on the skin.
It feels like you're applying a skincare product on your skin and it doesn't make you feel like you have another layer of makeup on top.
Not to mention it looks super natural and it just blends into your skin right away!
The finish settles to semi-matte but it doesn't feel drying at all.
Staying power needs to be improved honestly, but if you pair it with a decent makeup primer, and set with a powder or even use a setting spray, you can extend the wear of this cushion for sure.
Also this product is not sweat-proof or summer proof in any means
since it would just disappear once you start sweating.
But the good thing is, it doesn't accentuate your pores, fine lines or dryness when it's wearing off.
Even though the coverage and longevity kinda sucks,
I still prefer to use Etude House AC Cleanup Mild BB Cushion as my everyday cushion.
Whenever I wear foundations or cushions for more than half a day,
I generally can't wait to remove all the gunk on my face.
However this guy doesn't bother my skin all day long!
My skin loves this product.
So if you can bear with lack of coverage and staying power,
I highly recommend you guys to get your hands on this cushion.
