Review: Etude House BB Magic Cream

My first BB cream is the Etude House BB Magic Cream (Moisture), I've had this for years now and there is still plenty left. (Only because I don't wear makeup everyday)

[I think they have a newer packaging version?]

Pea size is enough to cover my entire face

Compared to the other BB creams I have tried, this is so far the thickest in consistency, and has the most medical-ish/minty/I dont know how to explain scent.

What I Like:
-> Small amount is enough to cover entire face
-> Evens skintone
-> Brightens my skin
-> Skin looks dewy and healthy after
-> Hygienic pump
-> Light-Medium coverage

What I don't like:
-> Has a slightly minty floral scent
-> Shade match (it is dark on me during winter)
-> Depending on the amount of product used it can get cakey
-> does get oily throughout the day

With this BB cream, you do have to be careful on the amount of product you use since the more product you use the more cakey and heavier it would feel on.
 Everytime I use this, I can always feel and tell that I have makeup on. I'm feeling 50-50 about this product. Yay because it has the best coverage among all the bb creams I have tried, I can use it even when my skin is dry, and my face doesn't itch afterwards. Nay because I can always feel that I have this thick mask on my face.
