Hello lovely people!
I’m back with another bb cream review. I’m always on the hunt for new bb creams and love that my collection is growing but today I’m very sad to say that I won’t be adding this particular bb cream to my favs. Keep reading to find out why!
Here’s my newest and first BRTC bb cream. It claims to “whiten, protect, and wrinkle improvement” while providing 10% of vitamins for brighter skin. It had the following vitamins:
~Vitamin A for nutrition
~Vitamin E for protection
~Vitamin C for vitality
~Vitamin B5 for moisture and relief
~Vitamin B3 for brightening
~Vitamin E for soothing
This is what the tub looks like. Pretty simple but I don’t mind.
Here you can see the actual product on my hand. It’s pretty thick and has a strong smell of baby powder! You would think it’d smell like citrus maybe because of all the brightening but it doesn’t.
I spread the bb cream out on the left side of my hand so you can see what it looked like compared to my original skin color.
So here’s my verdict along with the pros and cons:
HORRIBLE! I’ve never had a BB cream break me out so bad! I got and wore it the next day for about 6 hours and at the end of the day I notice my face was a bit red and patchy so I started to worry but it wasn’t until the next day that I saw the extend of the damage. I woke up to a face FULL of small red pimples!! Oh my goodness I felt like hiding under a rock. They didn’t itch or hurt but when I tell you they were everywhere on my face, I really do mean it. Wow, I’ve never experienced such a thing. The product wasn’t expired and it doesn’t contain anything that has broken me out in the past so I really can’t put my finger on what it was.
I took a picture of my forehead since it’s the last to heal out of my whole face. You can see that they’re small but still there. My face is usually clear for the most part and I always take pride in that because I do everything I can for my face to be that way so when this happened to me I felt so upset. I’d never seen my face that way. Due to insecurity reasons I didn’t take a picture when the rash was full on (Sorry, I’m only human ).
I will still give a pros and cons list like I always do so here are the Pros:
~Great coverage, medium to high
~Color. Although it was light enough for me, the undertones are a strong pink color which I stay away from since I have natural pink/red undertones. Not yellow at all as some people have described. I’m pale so I know!
~Scent may be strong for some. It doesn’t bother me and I quite like it but others may be sensitive to it.
~It can look very cakey, very quickly. I don’t recommend wearing more than one layer of this stuff. It’s pretty heavy so it makes you look too done.
~Very thick. Doesn’t spread easily.
Hope you guys found this review useful. As of now I don’t think I’ll try more BRTC products because they’re undertones never suit me. This BB cream suits NC15-20 skins. This product may very well work for you but not for me : (
