Holika Holika Petit Moisturizing BB cream

I have been very into Korean cosmetics and skincare products lately and I love it! As soon as I googled around and saw great reviews on this BB cream, I decided I wanted to give it a shot. I’m so happy I did!

Hello Reautifuls!

I have been using and trying out a few Korean brands and their cosmetics/skincare products. I’ve come to the conclusion that I absolutely love Korean products. My skin has become more flawless and a lot smoother since I changed up my entire skincare routine using only Korean products.

Finding something medium to full coverage is not something you can easily find in my opinion, unless you’re able to spend $30 or more. I have tried a lot of brands that have medium to full coverage foundations and they were never to my liking. They irritated my skin even more. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect foundation or BB cream on Korean websites for a very long time and I have to say that, especially if you’re really pale, Korean foundations/BB and CC creams are very well easily matched because a lot of products are really light to ‘brighten up’ your skin! I was nosing on eBay for a reasonable priced BB cream so that I could try it out without wasting a lot of money.

What Holika Holika says about the BB cream(s):

Okay, that sounds good to me! I looked up the ingredients and to be honest, as long as something doesn’t really contain any bad alcohols most of the time it’s fine for my skin. Holika Holika also says that the BB cream has very good coverage. Could it be true?

Dear, dear, dear Lord. I have never seen any BB cream with this amount of coverage! A lot of ‘full coverage’ foundations are always too cakey on me and because of some ingredients they only make my skin go even more red than it usually is. This BB cream is a miracle send from heaven!

It feels silky on my skin, doesn’t transfer, lasts all day (with powder) and is medium to full coverage. What more do you want? It doesn’t cake up at all, even if you use powder on top of it. I apply it with my fingers because I find it to look a lot better that way.

Also, it matches my NC15 skin perfectly! It is a little darker than the MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15 but I don’t have any trouble with it. It seems to match my skintone even better than the MAC one.

Here you can compare the two colours together:

like it

 

 

 

  • It’s medium to full coverage
  • Blends and matches skintone perfectly
  • Feels very hydrating on the skin
  • It doesn’t have the feeling of it ‘sitting’ on top of the skin
  • It’s very affordable, you can get it for +/- 4 dollars on eBay

cons

 

 

  • It only comes in one shade and would not suit cool skintones at all

 

final thoughts

I really like this BB cream and I’ve been wearing it everyday since I got it.
