Review: BRTC Glossy BB Cream

review

review

Bio Remedies Therapeutic Cosmetic (BRTC) is one of the more reputable cosmetic companies in Korea and based on online reviews, they have a lot of fans. Their BB cream line is very popular. I was able to try their “best” BB cream, the BRTC Recover Balm, and I was very impressed. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take photos to make a review post. To make up for that, here is my review of BRTC Glossy BB Cream based on a sample I bought ages ago but only got to try recently. Unfortunately, I think this particular BB cream has been discontinued. I don’t see it in http://www.skinami.co.kr/ nor http://www.brtcstore.com/.

FOTN: My Brother’s Post-Birthday Celebration

We celebrated my brother’s birthday last night. His birthday was actually last Thursday, July 28. Fortunately, I got to leave office early because of an evacuation drill. I was able to prepare myself with a simple look. 馃檪

My right eye is a bit red ^^;;;

Face:

  • Etude House BB Cream
  • Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer

I didn’t put any blush-on because my skin’s still reddish from the beach. Well, I rarely use blush-on anyway.

I think this came out blurry.
Sorry, kind of in a hurry. (They rhyme! :P)

ToyCon FOTD with Estee Lauder Berry Ice

I had a ToyCon FOTD draft, but decided against on posting it. The makeup was too light then (or the pictures came out that way), so it seemed pointless to post makeup that’s not too obvious or hardly visible. I deleted the pictures yet I couldn’t take not posting an FOTD. So last night I came out with this look:

FOTD: PRC Duty

I scheduled today to go to PRC to get a Certificate of Board Rating. Pictures were taken after I got home, so my makeup is mixed with all the pollution from Manila. LOL

Etude House Stippling Brush and Goodbye Trouble BB Magic Cream

I bought from Etude House just some days after their opening here last year. My first purchase was their BB Cream. Then I bought Jan a BB Cream and a stippling brush for myself in my second visit. The second visit earned me a free folder with Min Ho on the cover and a membership card (which I’ve only used once until now). In this post, I’ll reviewi both the stippling brush and bb Cream. It’s been long overdue. Browsing through unsorted pictures from my camera made me realize my backlog here.

Let’s just say that the Goodybe Trouble BB Magic Cream is mine. LOL

Review: Hanskin Caviar Gold BB Cream

review

I tried Hanskin Caviar Gold BB Cream for a couple of weeks and finally surrendered that it’s not suited for my skin. It makes my face very pale and dries my skin because of its thick consistency. This product is more suited for those with oily skin and very fair complexion, probably caucasian skin.

The Hanskin Caviar Gold BB Cream has SPF 21, aloe, caviar and vitamin B. It has whitening and wrinkle-prevention ingredients as well.

MAC launches their own BB Cream


Photo from Make Up For Life

I was shocked when my sister told me that MAC has launched their own bb cream, MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm UVA/UVB SPF35 PA++. I’m crazy over bb creams right now and just recently ordered a bunch of samples for review and testing. This piece of news delighted me a lot. I am a huge fan of MAC cosmetics and I will definitely buy their bb cream. This also means that BB creams will no longer be just an Asian thing. If the American market eats up the MAC version, I’m pretty sure other well-known cosmetics brands will produce their own. My only problem now is how to get a hold of this beauty. Care to help?

Tony Moly Expert Triple BB Cream

I’m pretty much a BB cream newbie. I’ve only tried Etude House Magic BB Cream (I should do a review on this one since I use it regularly) and I find it pretty good although lacking in coverage. This review is not about that particular BB cream. It’s about the sample BB cream I won from Lizz Buenaventura.

For those not in the know, BB creams aka blemish balms are the latest craze in Asia. They are multi-functional skincare products which can moisturize, soothe, heal, cover and protect the face. Some BB creams offer sun protection and whitening properties too. It is used like a moisturizer but sometimes I just use it as base and then apply foundation over it.
