Hello readers! I'm so sorry that I have been out of reviews for the past weeks or so. It has been so hectic dealing with a lot of personal things that I had to skip my regular blogging schedule. I am still left with 3 BNT Beauty Box items for the month of March. Today's review will be one of those 3 so look forward to the other two which I will be putting up real soon!
Today's review is on the It's Skin Prestige BN cream which has the main ingredient of bird's nest and gold. The gold and peacock feather packaging gives off a deluxe and fancy vibe to this product even prior to unboxing.
The main ingredients for this cream is bird's nest extract and gold. Bird's nest extract has been found to help cell regeneration, increases collagen synthesis which helps with improving skin elasticity, and makes the skin luminous. Gold in skin care reduces fine lines and wrinkles thus making the skin look younger. It also improves blood circulation, reduce skin dryness and lighten complexion.
I can't get enough of the pretty packaging which makes me think of Cleopatra and her beauty regime especially with the added use of gold in this product.
The jar is huge but the actual product is actually so little. I guess they put too much on the packaging and although I really love the packaging, I feel like this is unnecessary since the product is actually really good. surprisingly, the value for this product is around $45 at Amazon and Koreadepart, and I thought it would cost more than that! It is still up there in terms of price but I firmly believe that it is a good value for the actual product and packaging included.
As you can see in the photo above, the gold is clearly visible in the cream. The visibility of the gold makes you feel luxurious every time you use it.
The cream is not thick and the texture is just a regular lotion. It feels a little bit slippery but it does not feel oily. After it absorbs into the skin, you can definitely feel the moisturizing effect. I can truly say that it does a good job on hydration but even after a whole month's use of it I couldn't see any of it's brightening effects. The cream also has a fresh and floral, slightly perfume-y scent to it that is not too over powering. The scent helps calm me and puts me in a great mood before bed.
This cream is really good and if you get a chance, it's something you should try out. It's not very common to find bird's nest and gold ingredient combination in the market so I'm really grateful to BNT for letting me try this one!
