BRTC Perfect Calming Cream

I’ve been used BRTC Perfect Calming Cream for 2 months. Starting from my need of moisturizer that will surely hydrate my skin, not just added oil. My old moisturizer left my skin so oily and then led me to greasiness. Even it led to more whiteheads sometimes instead of reducing them. Then I tried the Perfect Calming Cream from BRTC Korea.
I chose this product after reading the description from the site.
“It is a nutritive cream that replenishes moisture to skin. It supplies moisture and nutrients to skin simultaneously. The contained patent ingredients which are effective for the restoring the damaged and tired skin and caring from the root act instantly to the red and sensitive skin to become tight and healthy skin by calming skin comfortably.”

BRTC is a brand developed by AMI - Aesthetic Medical International Korea. This brand is quite popular recently on the network. So I thought I would give it a try too.
After washing my face, I spread out toner. Then I squeeze a small amount of the BRTC cream and apply it to the face. If I squeeze too much, then I apply it to my neck since my oily skin type doesn’t want to be too moisturized. The cream almost smells nothing. The creamy texture is very easy to be applied. After that just pat-pat the fingertips to better absorbent. Wait for at least 5 minutes and then ready to apply the next product.

Main ingredients
Compound extract of Balloon vine / Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil / Sunflower Oil, Pigweed extract, Derivatives of Glycyprhizinic Acid

I’m always being curious with the ingredients so I started to find out. Here are some of them :
Balloon vine (Cardiospermum halicacabum), has a high content of phytosterols, flavonides and terpenes which can Reduce the skin’s sensitivity and soothes irritated skin. Usually used as a poultice for skin diseases, such as eczema and dermatitis.

Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil is the fixed oil obtained from the seeds of Echiumplantagineum that is rich in stearidonic acid with its anti-inflammatory and wrinkle reduction properties. Also improves the skin’s natural barrier
Sunflower oil is the oil expressed from sunflower (Helianthus annuus) seeds. This oil is commonly used in cosmetic formulations as emollient for its smoothing and non comedogenic properties.

Pigweed extract which contains vitamin A, C, and E is a source of anti-oxidants.

And my review are :
  • moisturizing but doesn’t too greasy
  • doesn’t lead to whitehead
  • hydrate comfort feeling after being applied
  • slowly improves my skin texture

I personally recommend this cream. I apply it in the morning and evening. It helps me reduce my skin problem. Some site sells the mini size of it if you want to get a first trial.
