A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this product called the BB Cream. I first heard about from this Li(z)terati, whose site I lurk. Askmewhats made an extensive product review as shown here. It took me serious googling to finally find Indulgenzes, a local supplier. I bought a tube from Indulgenzes before she ran out of stock.
The rave about BB Cream, particularly the BRTC brand is captured by Indulgenzes description as follows:
"Blemish Balm, also called BB Cream, is known to have been formulated as an after-treatment cream to help patients who have gone through laser skin surgery to soothe and regenerate the skin. Soon, it became popular with many Korean celebrities.
-Helps soften skin texture
-Prolonged use of product may help improve overall texture of skin and fade acne scars
-Acts as makeup base and foundation
-Helps cover the irregularities on the skin, even out skin tone, camouflage under eye circles, scars and add radiance to face."
Of all the BB Creams available in the market, BRTC (Bio Remedies for Therapeutic Cosmetics) has the best reviews. I liked the sound of a cosmetic that actually heals the skin instead of ruins it. So far, it is an amazing makeup base. The Perfect Protect BRTC BB Cream leaves a dewy effect instead of a matte effect.
How do I apply?
3. Moisturizer (I skip it during the day because I tend to get oily.)
4. Sunblock spf 50 (My BRTC BB cream has no spf.)
5. BRTC BB Cream
6. Foundation (for better coverage)
7. Powder (to set)
