Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base in #2, Berry Choux {Mini Review}

Hey dolls~
I decided to do a short mini-review today, since I was too lazy to do a full one of a full sized product >u<
I got a sample of the Berry Choux version of Etude House's Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base (which I've tried before in #1, Mint Green) in my most recent Jolse Mini-haul
The front of the sample pack~
There are three different 'flavours' of this product; Mint, Berry, and Peach. The mint corrects redness, the berry brightens skin, and I believe the peach does the same thing as the berry, except it's for more yellow skin-tones.
The back~ (mostly Korean >_>)
Like all bases, you apply it before you put on other makeup. I was surprised with how much I liked this base!
The scent isn't great- it doesn't smell like berries (which I somewhat expected), but it does fade pretty quickly, leaving just a mild sweet scent, so it shouldn't irritate those of you with sensitive noses. It is pretty grainy though, which makes it not all that pleasant to apply... 
The cream~
The cream is a light pinkish color, and you don't need too much to cover your entire face. It's effects were surprising though. Here are some before/after photos.
Before- sorry my skin looks bad >n<
Looks brighter, right?~ In addition to that I think my skin looks less flawed- obviously there are still imperfections, but I think it looks better than the before photo. It was brightening, as promised~ 
My main shock about this base is that it's... oil controlling!! I found this out while at school today. Normally I need to blot my face about halfway through the day due to oily skin (bleh), but after doing so I noticed that there was no oil to blot :o I didn't change anything else in my makeup routine for that day, so it must've been this base! >u<
So, despite not being too satisfied with the application of this product, the pleasant surprise of it's qualities has left me liking it quite a bit. I'm definitely going to buy the full sized version of this (maybe in mint- though I can't recall if that controlled oily skin).
Hope you guys found this useful!~
Bye <3
