I saw this BB cream for men while I was shopping for pasalubong (gift) in Nature Republic. It was on sale, along with sunscreen, so I was thinking of buying a set for my uncle who is crazy about Korean cosmetics… but when I dabbed a little of the sample on my hand, I figured that he would not use it, because it’s tinted and creamy just like any regular BB cream. Since men don’t usually wear make up, I was expecting a different kind of BB cream for them, maybe one that doesn’t have much of the color of a typical BB cream and with thinner consistency, but Nature Republic’s BB cream for men is not that different from the BB cream women use.
The blot in the middle is BB cream for men, while the two are BB cream for women. They have the same consistency.
Nature Republic’s Pleasure Garden Sports BB cream for Men has only one shade, but it has a higher SPF. The regular price in Korea is around 11.20 USD.
I was told that a lot of young men in Korea use BB cream to get that flawless K-pop idol look. I remember watching a Korean TV show once that featured a Korean man addicted to it. On Youtube, you will find several videos of men talking about their favorite BB cream.
Who says BB cream is only for women?
If you would like to start using BB cream but you have never worn make up your whole life, this tutorial will help you with the basics. ^^
