BRTC Jasmine Water BB Cream

I recently purchased the BRTC Jasmine Water BB Cream from sasa.com! I bought it because the other BB cream was only a travel size and so I ran out quickly. I wanted something moisturizing, that had benefits for my skin and also provided a good coverage for my skin tone.



I'm always glad to see things with SPF, because I'm terrible with remembering to use it. I really should be using it daily because I have very fair and delicate skin. I also burn very easily (no tanning here)!

Even though I'm too young for wrinkles, I imagine that the anti-aging properties will act as a preventive for me..


This BB cream comes out a little more pink than the other ones I've seen from reviews. Once blended and after oxidizing, I found it matched my skintone fairly well and didn't drain the colour from my face as much as the Skin79 did.

I'd say it has about the same coverage as the Missha M Perfect Cover (light-medium). Also compared to Missha, I found this BRTC cream did have a scent to it but it was much nicer than that of Missha. I imagine the scent of the BRTC is that of jasmine!



One thing I noticed right away was that my pores seemed to disappear! I have fairly noticeable pores around my nose, and I only needed a little to cover them up. As for larger blemishes, you might need additional concealer to completely hide them. This bb cream, however, seemed to do a good job of smoothing out the skin tone and taking care of smaller spots.

Be sure to exfoliate if you have dry skin! This bb cream seemed to highlight all the dry patches on my face upon close inspection. With regular exfoliation, this shouldn't be a huge issue.

I also noticed that it makes your skin look SUPER dewy. A little powder fixes that, unless you like the dewy look. :)

Overall
  • Pink undertones don't leave you looking like a ghost
  • light to medium coverage
  • has the scent of jasmine
  • has SPF 30, anti-wrinkle & whitening properties (Missha has more SPF at 42 PA+++)
  • more hydrating than Missha M Perfect Cover
In all, I think if other BB creams are taking the colour out of your face, then try this one. If you like a pleasant scent to your cosmetics, but isn't as heavy as the Missha M Perfect Cover, then try this. It's a good all-around BB cream, that I would especially recommend for fair skinned caucasians.
