BRTC Perfect Recover Balm Review

Perfect Recover Balm

Ever since my last bottle of Skin79 Super+ BB Triple Function (VIP Gold), I got myself another tub of BRTC Perfect Recover Balm. After many researches, this is the best for sensitive and easily irritated skin, with the main functions:

1. Absolute trouble feature block
2. Controlling irritated skin
3. For the blemish skin


The texture of BRTC Perfect Recover Balm is thicker than the Skin79 Super+ BB Triple Function (VIP Gold). As you can see from my over-squeezed amount of BB, it does not even drip! Actually you only need a small amount of this to apply it on your face and neck. At a glance, the color is darker than my skin tone ( i find the same with all BB), but after blending it, the color actually blends into your skin!

with and without

After blending it, you can see the side with BRTC Perfect Recover Balm appears to be more matte and smooth.

How does it score to cover my annoying pores?


Before: Only with sunscreen of my skin. Visible pores and some red dots.

with BRTC perfect recover

After applying BRTC Perfect Recover Balm, pores are quite visibly covered, but pimple still visible.

Overall, i am quite satisfie with this BRTC Perfect Recover Balm. In fact, I find it even better than the Skin79 Super+ BB Triple Function (VIP Gold). This does not feel greasy at all! And the oil control is much better too. Even after 5 hrs of application, I only feel a little oily.  Me totally love this now! And this does not oxidize much on my skin.

Pros: Good oil control, feels lighter on skin, does not oxidize much, good for blemish skin

Cons: Does not contain SPF, one of the most expensive BB around.

A 30ml of BRTC Perfect Recover Balm cost about RM100 (~USD$30), while the Super+ BB Triple Function (VIP Gold) was about RM75(~USD$21) for 50ml.

For any of you who intend to purchase a blemish balm, hope this helps! 🙂

Oh no, this is better than the Skin79!!!!!! Gosh that’s not the right thing to say especially for someone like me who plans to STOP purchasing any BB cream unless I finish up the current one!!! But I have a feeling by reading reviews that this is better than Skin79, and it’s way more expensive 🙁 🙁 🙁 nooooohhhh!!!!! hahahha

Hi hi…
It seem like the ur skin appeared to be fairer in the 2nd pic. Does it make one looks fairer? Heard this is the best bb cream from brtc but I’m so into brtc caviar. 😛

BTW, not sure if you do meme but you’re it. Just write 7 random facts about yourself. 🙂

Shirly: actually, it is more like it brightens up my skin 🙂 yeah i think u have tried at least 6 or 7 BB? :p

ic. 🙂 Me using my 6th 40ml now. Tried the BRTC Jasmine Water but it’s way tooo oily for me. Am thinking of trying other bb cream.

Glad that this Perfect Recover works for you 😀

I also have this one and love it so much. The only downside is, there is no SPF or any healing/medicinal properties in it (unlike its sisters, Jasmine & gold caviar & protect multiplex) hehe…

If you only want coverage/even skintone PLUS good oil control, look no further 🙂

But I’d say TSF Aloe is pretty much a dupe to this expensivo BB 😉

The new and improved ‘Perfect Recover Balm’ is called the ‘Blemish Recover Balm’. It contains SPF as well as stronger anti oil ingredients.
I bought mine at for $39 which came with samples.

VIP Gold is meant for more oily skin. you should compare like with like. You can try Hot Pink if you like better oil control
