Review: Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream

Hello everyone!
Today I'm back with a new review of Korean BB cream~
Well, Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream is my current favorite BB cream, and I think it's quite hard for me to move on from this product! Okay okay, I know that CC cream have become a trend and very very popular now, since almost all beauty brands from western to asian have launched their own CC cream, but honestly..
I haven't tried any of them until now! Uhm maybe I'll give it a try after this product is completely run out. Am I too frugal? lol xD

Oh actually.. I already knew this BB cream for a long time, but I just bought it
at the end of last January for IDR 148.000 after I watch a video of Michelle Phan's January Favorites lol (≧▽≦)

Description:Jelly BB makes moist and bouncy jelly skin. Has jelly texture that helps spread evenly and creates fully hydrated and shiny skin. It is also perfect for covering up facial blemishes. Mint water hydrates facial skin, and marine jelly complex makes soft and bouncy skin.
And sorry I didn't take any pictures of the ingredients.. Because the box color is
mint green, while the text color is white.. and honestly my camera couldn't really take very-good pictures sigh~*aigoo I need a new camera!!* (≧д≦)

It comes with a good quality sponge inside the box. It's more dense than other sponges!

This BB cream is available in two shades:
#1 Aqua Beige
#2 Aqua Neutral

And mine is Aqua Neutral, because I'm so afraid that the Beige one would make
my face looks too bright >__<

It comes in a matte glass jar with a spatula attached to the mint-green plastic lid, and it contains 40ml. It's quite heavy and fragile errr, so.. it's not travel friendly! ;AAA;
And as you can see, it's shaped like a jelly / pudding when I flipped the jar~
Omo the packaging is so cute, eh? *o*

As you can see on the pic below.. the jelly-texture of this BB cream is very unique, and it's so bouncy especially when I shake the jar~

But sadly.. it has a noticeable artificially floral scent, and it smells too sweet and quite strong for my nose duhh! (*´Д`)=з
So, I don't recommend this BB cream for those of you who are really sensitive to fragrance, okay?

And here's the swatch on my hand~

And here's the result on my face~

This BB cream is very light on my skin. The coverage is very sheer, it gives enough coverage only for my redness and pigmentation, but it's buildable to medium coverage. However, it leaves a white cast and it looks cakey on my face if I apply too much! So, yeah I still need a concealer to cover up my pimples and my imperfections >__<
Well, I have oily & combination skin, and for me.. the oil control of this BB cream is
just so-so, because my face started to feel greasy after 2 - 3 hours, geez!
And the finish is semi-matte, it looks so natural and perfect for everyday look ^^
Actually it's rather difficult for me to blend this BB cream with my fingers, because
it's quickly absorbed into my skin, so I prefer to use a sponge or a brush~
And unfortunately, I found out that this BB cream contains Parabens ughh ;___;

Overall.. I only recommend this BB cream for normal to oily skin types, because I think this BB cream is not suitable for people who have dry skin, since my mom told me that this BB cream couldn't blend very well on her dry skin, so it looks a bit cracked and powdery err -___-

 Love :
✩ Reasonable price.
✩ Has SPF 20 PA++
✩ Very light on my skin.
✩ Natural finish.
 Doesn't break me out.
✩ Unique jelly-texture.
✩ Comes with a free sponge inside the box.
✩ Cute packaging.

 Hate :
✩ The jar is quite heavy and fragile.
✩ It smells quite strong.
✩ Couldn't cover my imperfections very well.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day, girls ^^

See ya~

    1. Yup! It looks like a pudding, right? *o*

  3. I've heard so many great things about this BB cream! It looks great for the summer! :D

    1. Yeah, you should try this BB Cream too! ^^

  4. oooh, I want to try this jelly bb too! ^_~

    1. Yeah, I highly recommend you to try this BB cream! ^^

  5. Thank you! I'll follow you back asap ^^

  6. I was so close to buying this today until I scrolled to check their ingredients and I saw "methylparaben". Since it's one of Holika Holika's most popular items, I really wanted to try it out...but in the end I decided not to. Glad you mentioned that it included parabens because out of the many reviews I had gone through, not a single blogger mentioned it!

    You've got a lovely blog here, keep up the great work =)

    1. Yeah actually it's a good BB Cream, but unfortunately it contains paraben, however.. I don't really mind about it.
      Uhmm if so, you might skip this BB Cream! I hope you can find a good BB Cream for you ^^
      And thanks so much for your compliment, dear <3
