This Week in BB Cream: Nature Republic Collagen BB Cream SPF25 PA++ Age Slick

Disclaimer:  though this bb cream is a gift with purchase Nature Republic didn't pay me to do this review.  I also do not know how much the full size of this at Nature Republic Phils. And by the way I do not know what md water is, hehehe baka may magtanong, hindi na ko nag-google.
It's been a very toxic week with the sniffles, and a culmination of three months work is upon me and I needed something quick and easy for my daily face, no mess or fuss. 
This is actually what I needed this week.  Something simple, nothing too fancy with a bit of protection and coverage.  the really nice and really mild baby powder scent is a sweet bonus.  I'm glad this freebie is in that kind of upside down squeeze tube and makes it more hygienic and tidier to keep and reuse.  Either my skin is extra dry because of the season, the colds I had this week, or the tension but my skin appreciated this bb cream that I think is really for combination dry skin.  
Only my nose would get oily and would get that way only after 3-4 hours has passed already.  I actually no longer retouch with powder and only blot the oil from my nose. It has spf25 pa++ enough for indoors.  The scent, awww I really like the johnson baby powder scent, yung normal.  It lasts all day, too, I just haven't tested it walking around in heat or humidity.  
 It didn't break me out and it's not too reflective in flash photography.  The coverage though, is well, very light.  I like the shade though, it suits me.  A touch of setting powder helps, but overall if you have redness and scars to hide then have your concealer around.  Pore coverage is minimal as well.  but at least, it's quite easy to remove ;-)
  I recommend this bb cream for those short trips to the market when you'd need some sun protection and not look like the walking dead.  Will I purchase the full size?  I think I'll try out Nature Republic's other bb creams specially the one for oily combination skin.
