Review: BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base, Creating That Effortless Luminous Skin

Thanks to the Korean trend that now many of us will appreciate to have that glowing luminous healthy skin. I’m not going to miss this out although I have combination skin, I do love to have that effortless radiant skin. I was given the opportunity to try BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base to achieve that glow. Please do stay tuned as I will be giving away this makeup base in my next post!

BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base

‘BRTC’s Jasmine 3D Luminous Base is rich in fine pearl particles. Upon application, it will give you a radiant and 3D-looking pearly skin. Upon application, it provides an instant supply of moisture to the skin and maintains moist skin for a long time’ – BRTC

BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base - Description

Basically this is a makeup base that create the luminous glow on your skin, it’s like your skin radiance booster. The fine pearl particles helps to reflect light giving that 3D effect to the skin. It also moisturises your skin and recharge them. This meant to use after your skin care regime and before your makeup. Apply it on high points of your face such as forehead, nose, cheekbones, chin or you could also use on entire face.

BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base - Tube

BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base comes in a tube form and pointed tip to dispense the product. This is what I like about it because we can have a better control in squeezing the amount of product that we want to use without any wastage.

BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base - Texture

The texture is a very light cream that blends easily and the fine pearl particles has that shimmery purple hue which helps to correct yellow undertones. Once blended, it looks like its nothing and this is buildable if you like to have a greater effect. It doesn’t feel greasy and left my skin feeling smooth. Although it’s jasmine, the scent smells nothing like jasmine at all. It has a light floral scent that is not overpowering.

BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base - Before & After

Here is a before and after applying the base. Please pardon my dark circles, puffy and squinting eyes in the morning. On before, I had applied my skin care including sun block and on after is this base, foundation, powder and the rest of the eye makeup. It is recommended to layer on BB cream after the base but the BB cream that I have doesn’t provide much coverage for my dark circles, therefore I opted the foundation instead. I did apply on my entire face because I want that entire glow on my face. With the base, I do noticed that my skin is less yellow.

BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base - Lasting Power

I have recorded one-day test with the BRTC Jasmine 3D Luminous Base and this is the result.

  • 8:55AM – where I have it freshly applied and head to my office.
  • 12:10PM – My t-zone got slightly oily, other areas such as my cheek and chin is still fine. I like the state of my face right here, where it looks glowingly healthy. I blotted my face right after.
  • 5:17PM – At this hour my face is oily all over, the foundation seems to fade a little because the redness of my face started to show. I blotted my face right after again.
  • 6:37PM –  Pardon from the off from work tired face. My face is again pretty much greasy all over but still maintain to look rosy.

Verdict?

I love that it is light-weight and doesn’t give that overly glossy look on my skin. Also it helped on correcting my yellow undertone, leaving my skin looking rosy instead.  Throughout the usage of this, it did kept my skin moisturised but the only backlash of this base is that it doesn’t have oil controlling properties which wasn’t promised from the first place. Once the oil started to seep, the makeup tend to wear off easily. I do think that this suits better for those who have normal to dry skin.

Balik Kampung & Remember To Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya With You

RAYA RAYA RAYA!!! It’s the festive and holiday season, share the cheers and laughter by visiting your family and friends’ house or even neighbors. Let’s all be happy and jolly! To this festive season, I would like to share with you and its Vanity Trove Exclusive Sasa Hari Raya box! They are heavy, handful and comes in full sized! Plus they are also great skincare essentials when you’re going back to your hometown.

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya 2

Here it is and take a glance of it. This is a brand exclusive trove with Sasa Malaysia and you may find these products from Sasa too. What they have to offer in this trove, is mainly skincare products, afterall the foundation of physical beauty begins with skin.

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya - Card

The card of all the products information, I would also say this box accommodates to many skin types either normal, dry, combination to oily skin types.

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya - Cyber Colors Cleansing Oil

Cyber Colors Cleansing Oil in Lavender,(200ml)

‘…is a moisturizing and soothing oil that can thoroughly dissolves all makeup and impurities. it helps to retain moisture of your skin and leave skin smooth. With dry hands, dispense an ample amount (2-3 pumps) onto palms. Apply cleansing oil all oveer the face. Emulsify by cold water and massage thoroughly onto skin. Rinse thoroughly with cold water.’

The scent of the lavender is just so soothing and relaxing plus they have my favourite, which is green tea. By all means the scent of this cleansing oil is the first scent that I could smell when I first open the box. Best of all that it comes in full size, yes I’m not kidding at all! I did a short test on it with my most stubborn mascara and it cleanse most of it, only leaving two tiny spot unclean. Impressive and for 200ml, cleansing oil like this can last really long.

Price: MYR 53.90

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya - Neogence Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse

Neogence Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse, 50ml

‘…is a silky foam cleanser that cleans skin thoroughly without any tight effect. Its natural active ingredient, Amino Acid has a mild acidity of pH5.5, which is nonstimulating, and suitable for all skin types. Besides deep cleansing, it also moisturizes, increase skin metabolism and helps to soften dead skin. Pump 2-3 times on palm, gently massage on wet face. Rinse and apply toner/routine skincare.’

The mousse bubbles are not as fine as I expected but I love the sweet citrus scent. Once pumped, it spreads around quite fast as you can see from the image above on left, the bottom of the bubbles had liquefy slightly. I like the fact that it doesn’t dry out my skin and the full size is at an affordable price too. For this as a deluxe travel size, great for me to bring it around while I travelling or outdoor sports.

 Price: MYR39.00 (180ml)

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya - Haruhada Yuzu Pore Cleanser (for Nose)

Haruhada Yuzu Pore Cleansing Gel, 50grams

‘Contains several citrus extracts. With the warming effect, it helps to eliminate blackheads and remove dirt skin and to control oil secretion. Leaving your skin with an oil-free and refreshing sensation.’

I have not came across this brand before and indeed its an eye opener. I didn’t expect that the gel to be black  but it’s that type of color that fades once you rub the gel on the skin and doesn’t stain. What’s special about this gel that it is meant specifically for nose area to reduce and remove blackheads and other impurities. I love how the warm sensation comes in when I rub the gel at the back of my hand but no worries because it doesn’t burn. The warm sensation is really gentle. I can’t wait to try this, I have tons of gunks on my nose and chin. This is a full size!

Price: MYR34.90 (50grams)

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya - NUXE Multi-purpose Dry Oil Face Body Hair

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil, 10ml

‘As best-seller of for the brand, this dry oil nourishes, repairs and protects the face, body and hair with its unique concentration of Precious Plant Oils (30%) and Vitamin E. It enhances the skin and eaves the hair with a radiant shine in just one step. Many women also use this special oil in replacement of regular fragrance! It does not contain any preservative.’

I love oils, the fact that they provide and holds up moisture better than cream most of the time. This dry oil looks really light in texture and once applied it doesn’t feel oily either which is definitely a plus point. It leaves the skin smooth and moisturized. The turn off is that it has intense jasmine scent that becomes lighter once blended, maybe its just me. I’m not too comfortable with this scent.

Price: MYR 148 (100ml), exclusively at Sasa

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya - BRTC Jasmine Moist Powder

BRTC Jasmine 3D Moist Powder, 5 grams

‘…comprises of jasmine extract wrapped powder capsules that mellts into skin like velvet cream upon application. It creates a moist, radiant skin look along with a cooling texture as the moisturizing capsule helps endow liveliness to rough, dull skin. It can control the secretion of excess face sebum, moisturize, cover imperfections and provide a brightening and soothing effect. After foundation or BB Cream application, gently tap appropriate amount on entire face.’

Clearly when its mentioned jasmine, it does have jasmine scent but not as strong as I expected. The scent is much more acceptable. Although this is a mini sized, it is still comes in a sifting jar which the full size product is too. Also, it comes with a puff which I could foresee that I will hardly use it, I always prefer to use brush. The powder texture is really fine and finishes off matte.

Price: MYR 55 (25grams)

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya - Cure Natural Aqua Gel

Natural Aqua Gel by Cure,(3grams x 10)

‘Japan’s No.1 skin exfoliation product, Cure! Cure contained with 90% Hydrogen Water which helps to remove dead skin and dirt to support the natural skin regeneration process. It is preservative free, coloring free, fragrance free also mineral oil free and alcohol free! This Cure is the safest and most gentle exfoliation to your skin! Apply Cure on Face and gentle massage. Gently rise off with lukewarm water. Moisturize your skin follow with lotion or emulsion.’

I have came to known this brand from other blogger friends for their launch but I have not tried it before.  This seems like a promising product from Japan. They came in sample cards with 2 sachet in each. I will see if I will like this.

Price: MYR 115 (250grams), exclusively at Sasa

Balik Kampung & Bring Vanity Trove Exclusive SaSa Hari Raya - Voucher

This trove also comes with MYR10 discount voucher when shopping at their store. Now this is keeping me thinking what to purchase there!

Verdict?

Although this brand exclusive trove with Sasa is priced higher which is MYR70, I think it’s still worth every penny considering the worth of products  in there especially with 2 full size products. Cyber Colors  Cleansing Oil is not any tiny sized product but 200ml. It’s a great discovery of products too especially the Haruhada Yuzu Pore Cleansing Gel, I wouldn’t have known about it until today. However, the shipping took about almost a week to arrive and it’s most probably because of the Raya season where tons of parcel to be sent out at the same time. I was worried that the package would have gone missing but it did arrived to me safely.

My Rating: 4.8/5
