BRTC Gold Caviar BB Cream Review

A Golden Find or Just a Fishy Deal?

BB Cream may be old news to Eastern Society but since it hit the Western fashion scene, the popularity of this mysterious new addition has exploded.

The problem is that BB cream IS new, so understanding how to use it can be difficult.

Is it a concealer? A foundation? A moisturizer? A primer? A sunscreen? An anti-aging cream? Well, yes, but a BB cream is much more than just the sum of its parts and may not be suitable for everyone.

BRTC’s Gold Caviar BB Cream is created for a very specific skin type, but if it’s formulated for you, then it’s possible that this wondrous product may just replace most of the daytime beauty products that currently take up space on your vanity.

What Do They Claim?

BRTC, or Bio Remedies Therapeutic Cosmetic, claims that this particular beauty balm is created using only the highest quality botanicals that are designed to nourish your skin using black caviar and colloidal gold. It helps form tight and even skin, provides light, even coverage that perfects, purifies, and brightens your skin.

Caviar is rich in omega-3’s and is a good source of vitamins A, B, C, and D as well several different minerals. It’s also similar in structure to human cells so many believe that this makes it a great product to deliver these wonderful nutrients.

BRTC goes on to explain the effect of gold therapy on the human body. According to their explanation, the electric current in gold works with the electric current in your body to normalize the ion current in your skin and activate skin function.

That last bit frankly sounds a bit like snake oil so I’m becoming a little skeptical. They claim that the Gold Caviar BB Cream is best for people with dry, worn skin, skin that’s aging and lacks resilience or skin that needs a continuous supply of moisture or nutrients.

What’s In It?

BRTC’s products use several different “patented special complexes” that are a combination of herbs and plant extracts that fight the various signs of aging, protect your skin from environmental toxins, and restore moisture and elasticity to your skin.

I’m always leery of products that don’t release a full ingredients list but BRTC welcomes clients to email them for a complete list, so that takes some of the sting out of the lack of ready availability. The fact that it has sunscreen in it is good, too. Though there are parabens in it, that doesn’t bother me quite enough to make me avoid the product.

Some of the ingredients listed for this BB cream include allentoin and green tea extract, products known to increase moisture and soothe skin. There’s also arbutin that is a natural lightening agent and adenosine, an organic compound that is widely used to reduce wrinkles.

The final two notable ingredients in Gold Caviar BB Cream are centella asiatica which is an antibacterial, anti-psoriatic, healing agent and vitamin E, which we all know is a soothing, healing antioxidant.

What Are Users Saying?

The reviews on this BB cream are widely mixed and the difference seems to be skin type. Those with extremely pale, dry, aging skin seem to love the product while people with normal or oily skin seem to feel that it’s too thick and greasy. Not surprising since caviar is fairly oily and the cream is packed with hydrating ingredients.

Also, the cream only comes in one extremely light, pink-tinted shade so if you aren’t fairly porcelain, you’re going to need a foundation or bronzer over it. The product provides medium coverage so if you have darker spots or freckles, you may find that they show through. Nobody really has anything to say about the wrinkle-fighting properties of the Gold Caviar BB Cream.

Users who like the product say that it needs 20 minutes or so to cure and for the color to mature so you may want to put it on and wait a few minutes to see what it’s going to look and feel like. It’s a bit sticky and chalky-looking as soon as you apply it. The scent is light and described as floral and clay-like.

Finally, though this product is extremely thick, people who took the time to get the hang of it say that it blends extremely well, and that it only takes a little dab of the cream to cover your entire face. That’s a great thing considering the fact that this is one of the more expensive BB creams out there.

Final Word

This cream seems to be a great option for people with extremely dry skin though if you have combination skin you may like this product as well, particularly in winter. The finish is dewy and lasts for about 4-5 hours so you’ll need to reapply halfway through the day.

The bottom line is that if you have light-toned, dry, sensitive, aging skin then this may be the perfect product for you. Just as a side note, BRTC also has a Jasmine BB Cream that many people with oilier skin seem to prefer over this one. Many users also like to mix the two. We’ll take a look at it in a future review.
