Pure Beauty Jasmine Water BB Cream
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've heard that the makers of PB and BRTC are one. I guess this is the generic counterpart of BRTC's. Interesting.
Anyway, I bought this out of curiosity at Watsons for 300 pesos only. Cheap noh?
Packaging: Personally, I prefer PB's packaging over the latter. It's cuter and squeezes just the right amount I need.
Color: Pink undertone! I believe I have yellow undertone although this suits my skin quite nicely. No whitish cast.
Texture: A bit thick. But not that thick. Somewhere in between.
Blend "ability": Can I say that it's hard to spread, easy to blend? Or just to be safe, manageable. I use my Elf foundation brush and a wedge sponge for an even, flawless application. It works well.
Coverage: Sheer - sheer medium; It can conceal minor redness, blemishes here and there. Then again, it's my opinion. It may work for you, but not for me.
Fragrance: Jasmine scent. If you find it too strong, don't worry the scent settles down a few hours or so.
Oil Control: Poor. It's supposed to be a "hydrating" bb cream.
Finish: Clean, semi-dewy.
Pros: Cheap, Hydrates, Evens out skin
Cons: Poor oil control, Lack of shades
My overall review:
I never broke out, not once upon using the Pure Beauty Jasmine Water BB Cream for two months. My skin feels healthy and hydrated. It tends to cake when applied too much though. One major boo boo for me is the lack of shades. But for it's cheap price of 300 pesos for a 30 ml tube, I'm not complaining. :)
