Background on the company:
BRTC (Bio Remedies Therapeutic Cosmetic) is the #1 Korean skincare line. It's sold in over 10 countries and has been featured in numerous magazines such as Vogue, InStyle, Allure, CeCi, etc. Many celebrities swear by it and it has even been recommended by doctors. What makes their products so special, you may ask? Well they only use the finest botanical ingredients ranging from fruit, plant, and nut extracts. The brand specializes in acne, moisuturization, anti-aging, pore, and whitening products for all skin types as well as both men and women.

BRTC Jasmine Water BB Cream SPF 30
$29.00 -- 35 mL

Packaging: 5/5
-Nice slim plastic bottle with a metal twistable cap
Smell: 5/5
-Smells like flowers, not too strong
Texture: 4/5
-Smooth, cream-like
Hydration: 4/5
-Does not flake out my skin like most foundations, skin is breathable
Coverage: 4/5
-Medium mostly, buildable if necessary
Blendability: 4/5
-Blends nicely onto the skin
Color: 3/5
-A little bit too pale for me
Overall: 4/5
-I would've gave this product a 4.5 but the color was just too pale for me which made me look a little bit like a ghost. If you're pale, you'll love this product because it works wonderfully. Personally, I like products that match my skin perfectly. Everything else is fine though especially the smell, texture, and coverage.








This BB cream uses Jasmine flower extracts that's suppose to hydrate and calm your skin. It's functions include whitening and wrinkle repair, hence the SPF which will protect your skin from harmful UV rays. It does not contain any mineral oil. But it does have: Jasmine flowers, Green Tea plants, Portulaca Oleracea, sweet Almond oil, and many more beneficial skin ingredients.



My skin type is overall normal, a little dry during the winter time. Of course being a teenager makes it acne prone as well. I rarely wear foundation since it makes me break out and besides, it always never tends to look flawless or natural on me anyways no matter what I do. I like wearing BB cream because it's a quick alternative to foundation. I can just put a little on my face and it'll instantly brighten my look so I don't look like a zombie in the morning :P But not all BB creams are amazing. I've found some to be non-hydrating, thick, harsh and nowhere near my skin tone. (cough* Shills Super Magic BB cream) But anyways, I got this BB cream recently and here's my say on it.






Pros:
-SPF 30
-Very blendable, thin consistency
-Medium builable coverage
-Smells good!
-Creamy
-Does not leave any streak marks
-Brightens my dull skin
-Semi-matte finish

Cons:
-Color selection (only 1 shade)
-Price

Wanna Shrink Your Pores?

BRTC Pore Tightener
$39.00 -- 50 mL

Packaging: 5/5
-Again, the packaging is really nice. Big giant white jar with a turquoise twistable cap
Smell: 5/5
-It smells a bit like lime but it's not too overpowering. I'm a citrus fan so I really like it :)
Usage: 5/5
-AMAZING! I saw results within a week and my pores shrank about 20 percent. So happy!!
Overall: 5/5
-Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants smaller pores ;) aka everyone!

Ingredients: Persimmon leaves extracts, Grape extracts, Green Tea extracts, Chestnut Skin extracts, Coffee Extracts, Resveratrol, Carthamus Tinctorius L. Extracts, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extracts, and Collagen.

Okay, my first impression on the product itself was, "Wow, this thing is HUGE!". A lot of you are probably hesistating to buy it because of the price but let me tell you, there's a lot of product in here. Especially since you won't be using all of it entirely on your face, just where ever you have pores. Inside the box is a jar of the pore tightener, a small white plastic spatula, and a tiny pamplet on the product itself. The labeling and descriptions on the BRTC products are in Korean and English.

I've noticed my pores enlarge over the years very subtly. On my nose, near the cheeks, above the lips, etc. I never really believed that you could actually shrink your pores. It seemed like another myth to me so for months now, I've just been using Clean & Clear's Blackhead Scrub and the Even Tone Cleanser to keep my pores all nice and clean. Pores are something that we all can't help, just like acne.

When I opened it up, I could smell a hint of lime which was great because most skincare products have this gross artificial smell. The product itself is a light pastel green color which becomes transparent when you apply it. Very hydrated and clumpy gel-like. It's cooling as well right when you're about to go to bed. You only need to apply a small amount to where ever your pores are, don't waste product! After leaving it on and heading to bed, your skin should feel refreshed and hydrated in the morning.

Results vary for everyone but I noticed my pores getting smaller after a week. I'm sure the progress will be better when you continuously use it. Oh, and i'm not sure if it'll work for everyone but this product actually moisturized my face so much that some of my acne disappeared :O Magic I tell you. Below are some images from the website for you to see :) Happy shopping everyone!!

PS. They give you lots of brochures and free samples with your order :) Check out the site for more great products.

Aveeno

New Bag :)



the tokidoki elegante messagio
$158-168

i love tokidoki. i obsess over their designs and everything so when i got this bag i was super psyched. this is a fairly new design, it came out a while ago i think but it's a medium sized light-weight shoulder bag. it has a short handle but there are also longer shoulder straps that you can put on for a different look. they have this available in different colors too like pink and white but i think the black one looks the best. each bag comes with a key chain, mine was the logo design in a pink crystal form but my sister took it from me xP needless to say, i can't wait to use it. if you google it up, the price varies from $158-168 for this particular bag but they also have in it different versions (wallet, tote, backpack, etc) check out tokidoki if you haven't already :) hope you all are having a great weekend.

Fall Makeup Tutorial

autumn is my favorite season. the leaves and colors are so beautiful and the weather is pretty fair! this is my take on a simple autumn inspired look. i thought the green made it sophisticated :) it's very wearable and versatile. if you want it to be more natural looking, try a brown colored mascara. you can even skip the eyeliner part if you want and just tight line your eyes. it's all up to you! enjoy the video and stay tuned for more.
