Holika Holika BB Cream


What would this blog be without a post about BB cream? BB creams are still a very controversial thing, and from my point of view and various reviews I have heard, people either love them or hate it. I am quite bias toward Asian ones, and I still have to find a western one I like. I noticed that people who tried out Western ones first, swears off BB creams forever.. And the ones who have tried Korean ones, usually stay loyal to them.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Korean BB creams are my holy grail, and from all I have tried there was only one which I despised.

This cream is my go to product most of the days, since it gives a dewy finish, hides imperfections and makes me feel beautiful. The essential key in BB cream applications, is to let it sink into the skin, and adapt to your tone; so what I would I usually do is apply it after the shower, go have a cup of coffee, then proceed with concealer and powder after coffee is drunk :) I have an impression that this formula of BB cream is targeted mostly for the teens, since it has medium coverage. However, I am very happy with it, and will soon be purchasing the third tube...

To sum up, the pros and cons of the product:


  • Cheap;
  • Easy application;
  • Dewy finish;
  • Good coverage;
  • Stays all day.
  • Cons:

  • not easily available - takes a while to ship from Korea;
  • needs some time to sink in;
  • enhances dry patches.
  • But to sum up, this is my must have, and I am on the second tube, looking to getting the thirth :)
