South Korea is known to be one of the cosmetics meccas in the world. With this in mind, I took the opportunity to hoard some of the beauty products that I saw in Myeong Dong during our trip last year. In the days to come, I will be posting these goodies and will share with you my personal thoughts on them.
If you are into fresh, natural and no-makeup look with an added benefit to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun, then you should try BB Cream. Beauty Balm, Blemish Balm or BB cream is one of the beauty hypes that was originally formulated in Germany and later on introduced in South Korea and Japan.
One of those that I recently tried is BRTC Jasmine Water BB Cream, a tinted moisturizer with SPF 30, giving you a moderate coverage with its patented complexes formula.
It is formulated with ingredients from natural plant extracts like oryza sativa, camellia sinensis and EMX Water, a patented special complex with the extracts of brown rice, green tea and taraxacum platycarpum root, the plants with high antioxidant capacity. The EMX Water has a good effect as Vitamin C and E, different favonoids, or Terpenes like R-Oryzanol, Ubiquinon and Saponin, a new substance which controls the production of ‘free radical’, the main factor for skin aging.
It works as a primer too yet light-weight. After using this daily for a week, it was able to conceal imperfections, clears up the redness on my cheeks, hydrates my skin and evens out my complexion. It lasts all day, stays very well and its just simply amazing!
