Aqua Petit Jelly by Holika Holika Review!


If you're like me and extremely wary of the cosmetics you use (most of the time) you'd do good to search around on blogs for reviews on products you're interested in. One thing I've always wanted to try was BB cream since I'd heard countless amounts of good things about it - but the problem I always faced was which BB cream would be best for me? There are just so many types, colours, textures, brands and let's not forget the newly introduced CC creams and DD creams too, helpful in the confusion of choices. 

Holika Holika is a well known Korean brand of cosmetics stocking make-up as well as skincare products, they are often also better known for their BB creams.

What finally motivated me to purchase the Holika Holika BB Jelly was all the good things I heard about it. As bloggers know bloggers, I've read positive reviews from popular internet idol RinnieRiot as well as tumblr user Juliyah. {Both beautiful in their own way and of course trustworthy in their reviews as they've gathered large audiences in their stride of beauty, fashion and their ways} So I just had to see what all the fuss was about and in less than words can muster I am in love with this product. It is so good that it could potentially replace all my foundations, concealers, powers etc. It feels light on the skin and offers even coverage without looking cakey. Not to mention it smells good too!

Have I mentioned the adorable packaging? How could I resist that frosted glass flower shaped jar? The product comes with a spatula attached to the lid which makes cleaning/application far easier and more hygienic as you're not sticking your fingers into the pot every time, the box also comes with one sponge! 

As my bare face is viewable from previous posts I'll jump straight to pictures with the product which I must stress aren't edited whatsoever for the purpose of an authentic review. A problem I have with my skin is pore control and I also sometimes have red patches on my cheeks. I'm also considered rather dark for a Chinese girl and this BB cream does the trick for all of these elements. Complete pore coverage including red patches, illuminates the face and hides dark circles (mostly!).

{This is 1 layer of application, personally it's enough for me but if on a day I'm feeling that my skin is especially bad I'd go with 2 layers. The BB cream here is being used respectively of concealers and foundations.}

{Applying the second layer > half blended.}

 {The left is bare skin with 1 light layer > the right, 2 layers applied and smoothed!}

I can't stress how great this product is, it's extremely light on the skin and not drying at all. I've tried so many facial cosmetics that have made my skin feel heavy and covered but this BB cream is revolutionary, it's fast become one of my everyday make-up staples! I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to use BB creams. However the main problem with this cream could be that it only comes in 2 shades - Aqua Beige and Aqua Neutral. Both of which are fairly light. I'm wearing Aqua Neutral as it is the darker option. But since my shade suits me - I give this product five stars out of five!

  18. Wow, thank-you so much for sharing your in-depth review on this BB cream! <3 I've never used BB cream before, as I usually prefer my trusty liquid foundation, but being Asian myself, I've always been curious to see what the type of BB cream is all about! :)

    I love how it has a very light finish and makes your skin very glowy and luminous! :) It definitely does not have that "cakey" feel that foundations/creams sometimes gives off. It looks very natural overall, which is definitely a plus! ^_^

    So glad I discovered lovely blog today! :-) I'm your newest follower. I hope we can stay in touch!
