Good morning Sunday!!!
Today is another undeniably warm day to hit outdoors. I had been preoccupied with a lot of things that I can't even find time to enjoy a tan. I mean summer will be over in a month; oh boy I haven't seen the beach and Ilocos has been known for its majestic and really breath takin' white sand beaches. What a sad reality for me lol.
I think you're guessing it correctly, I am spending my Sunday at home again: sleeping, watching and writing a bit. It has been a while since the last time I dropped a review on BB creams. To those who had been frequently visiting Frozen Blossoms knew that I had been battling acne and I have waited long enough for the culprits to clear out before I could use and test products again. So to kick off, I'll be sharin' my raves on Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream in number 2.Product Description
Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream is formulated with cornflower extract to stimulate skin renewal and whitening properties for a livelier and younger skin. It also has an SPF of 35 with a PA of ++ to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
01 Pink Beige
02 Natural Beige
Content: 35 ml / 1.18 fl. oz.
Availability: all Nature Republic outlets and counters ( I got this from Korean Cosmetics PH)
Packaging - It comes in a conventional squeeze-it-type up-side-down tube. The back part contains the necessary info which, however, is mostly written in Hangeul.It does have the engraved expiration date. Mine says it will expire on December 2014 (if unopened). Bear in mind though, that once unsealed / opened, you only have a year to consume it.
Also, it's not designed with an expensive lookin' pump type dispenser which is very common for liquid foundations and bb creams. It has a decent cap instead to secure the cream from spilling and a cute nozzle that dispenses the desired amount of cream.
Well, I love that I can as well control the amount I want to dispense plus an added pump will mark up the price of the cream I think hehehehe.
As for the cream, the consistency is not so thick or runny. I find it light and really easy to work with either by the use of my brushes or my fingers. It does not dry or set that fast so I don't have to work fast on blending. I mean, I can always take time to buff it without the fear of patchy make up which we usually get from the super matte foundie type.
Aside from that, it gives a subtle dewy finish which might be troublesome for others who want a matte finish.
As for the oil control, I oil up faster when not veiled with a loose powder. My skin is innately oily though.
Frozen Blossoms' thoughts:
I had been using this since my acne on my jaw area started to clear out and so far, I am not having any harsh reaction from it. I got 2 bumps but I think it was PMS related.
So I guess, that's it for today. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Mwahhhhh
