Lift and Tighten with BRTC

Friday, September 20, 2013


I first discovered BRTC when I was searching for Korean skin care online about 2 years ago. That's when I came across BRTC, and have been hooked on their skin care ever since. A Korean brand that is available only online here in Metro Manila, but is all over Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea and Japan.

I'm thrilled to tell you about BRTC's Pore Tightening System: Closes large pores, controls sebum, and moisturizes skin for an overall healthy glow! Not to mention, erases wrinkles and firms the skin for instant lifting!

BRTC Overnight Pore Tightener Set, PhP 1,299
The Overnight Pore Tightener (the one in the pot) has 2 available sizes:

25ml - PhP 799
30ml - PhP 899

BRTC says:
"Overnight Pore Tightener doesn’t only use its Self Memory Gel technology to close large pores, but it also improves the look of lines and wrinkles, lifts sagging skin, and moisturizes all night long for a healthy glow! "

I agree. After only 3 nights of using this product, my skin did radiant a certain shine that is not exactly oily. My pores appear tighter (note that I said "appear" and not "feel"), and it felt really supple.

The only problem would be, that it didn't have enough English information that would inform me how to use each of the products. Yes, I found information online about the one in the pot but none on the one in the tube. 

BRTC Pore Tightening System claims:
  • Tannin Pore Complex ™ patented technology!
  • Uses Self Memory Gel to tighten skin for up to 7 hours!
  • Increases collagen productivity to close pores
  • Absorbs quickly and creates glowing skin
  • Moisturizes overnight to keep skin healthy
As you can see below, you can see a little bit of English instructions on how to use the product, but for which one? I was baffled. So I guess they are one in the same?

Directions: Cleanse, tone and moisturize (if you have dry skin) or go right to the Overnight Pore Tightener after toner if you have oily skin. Scoop a pea sized amount with the plastic spatula (included), apply to sections of face with large pores (or whole face) and blend in large circles with fingers.

I can't seem to find any information online regarding the one in the tube, but the one in the pot had interesting information online:

Amazing as a treatment or moisturizer! 

"Overnight Pore tightener should be used in the evening as the last skincare step in your routine. It can also be used in the morning as your daily moisturizer, to help contract your pores and fine lines all day long."

In my opinion, I think they are one in the same product because they have the same consistency, same moisturizing benefits, and made my pores invisible just after 3 nights of use.

It has a consistency of a gel, so it's easy to scoop out! When you apply it on your face, it has a water like effect, like your skin is wet!

I really love the consistency of the product because it reminds me of Lancome's Aqua Fusion moisturizer, one of my favorite moisturizers of all time. I think I will do a FACE-OFF comparison on the two soon, so stay tuned!

My notes: I love this product! I love that my skin feels taught but not dry. When I put on my foundation, the pores on my nose it no longer that obvious which is just delightful! Would I buy it again? Most definitely.
