More than a make-up junkie, I believe I'm more of a skin care junkie. I love hoarding make-up loots, will probably use it for a week, then I'm back to using baby powder again. I'm kind of lazy when it comes to applying make-up. I'm usually okay with an eyeliner, sometimes a gloss and I'm all set. But now, I can't. I need to conceal whatever needs to be concealed.
Time consuming, I know, but I can't stop my freckles from peeking!
I'm an avid user of organic skin care products and I'm a bit paranoid over drugstore MU because I have very sensitive skin. One reason why I love to blog-hop every once in a while so I could check out what's the latest on skin care, plus, I get to see locally produced organic goodies! I stumbled upon the Bare Naturals Site, and my heart was jumping for joy when I saw that they have a BB cream- it's natural, paraben-free and has SPF30. Plus, it's reasonably priced for PHP398 (30ml). How good is that? :)
BB cream or more commonly known as the "blemish balm" cream is said to be used by patients who have undergone laser skin surgery for its soothing and skin-regenerating properties. It is widely used by Korean celebrities and make-up gurus.
So I bought and I was able to "road test" yesterday
and boy, was I impressed by it! :)

It has no sting, no oil. It's creamy but light and enough to conceal my freckles. Nice, eh?? I've been out the whole day running errands but I still looked fresh after Polie's check-up, groceries and a late lunch out without any touch-ups.
|after blending. voila! freckles be gone! :)|
I've used this product only once so the skin lightener, anti-wrinkle and over-all skin brightening effects would have to take a backseat for the meantime as it would take several usage to see if it really "does" wonder for my skin. But we'll see. :)
