One of the best things about having a gay brother? It's that you can go shopping for makeup together and have fun doing so... well, except when you disagree on a product (though not with this one). Actually, he only likes shopping for BB creams, moisturizers, face masks, etc., but not for lipsticks, mascaras, face powder... you know, the works since he doesn't use those.
Anyway, it seems like we haven't found a BB cream we want to stay loyal to so expect more reviews on different BB creams out there or CC creams. Heck, maybe even DD creams (is there such thing now?). As you can see, we went back to Nature Republic to restock on BB creams, but this time we figured we wanted to try out the Botanical Pore one.
Unlike the Botanical Pure BB Cream, the Botanical Pore cream is a lot easier to blend on the face and doesn't feel dry. You will also want to pump out a pea-size amount on your hand and not more because that amount will already go a long way. If it doesn't, you can always add a bit more, but let me warn you: it's quite impossible putting back the extra amount you squeeze out (not to mention unhygienic).
So here's my before and after photo (which I almost didn't post because of that planet-sized zit):
|now if only i can find an awesome lip balm that will cure/prevent cracked lips...|
In conclusion, I definitely prefer the Botanical Pore BB cream from Nature Republic over the Botanical Pure one. By the way, I've been using this product for about 7 months now (on our 2nd bottle) and for around 300Php plus, it's very affordable and worth it for the price.
But like I said, my brother and I will most likely try another product. I wonder which BB cream we should try next...
