This is a review about Holika Holika's bb cream Aqua Petit Jelly. It's available via ebay. The prices differ a little; I've paid 9€ for this product, shipping included.
This bb cream is available in two shades: Aqua Beige and Aqua Neutral. The shade I am using is Aqua Neutral. My skin has yellowish undertones, so if your skin has pinkish undertones Aqua Beige should match your skin color.
|It comes with a makeup sponge|
The container is made of solid glass and somewhat heavy. Inside the lid a spatula is fit, with which you take the bb cream out of the container. Please don’t apply it directly onto your skin. Dab the desired amount of product on a make-up sponge or foundation brush, and then apply it to your face.
This way you will not breed bacteria in your bb cream. Please wash and disinfect your sponge/brush on a daily basis!
The container looks really cute but I don’t like it, because it leaves the product open every time you apply it. The probability of growing bacteria in it is high. I like tubes and pump dispensers best, because they are very hygienic in use. With this product you have to be really cautious.
The bb cream feels soft and incredibly refreshing; it kind of melts into the skin quickly and blends easily. Your skin feels fresh, moistened and soft. Unlike other bb creams the consistency of this product is very light and not sticky or heavy at all.
It gives light to middle coverage and is perfect for hot and humid summer days. It gives a natural finish with a slight sheen and it's not meant to mattify your complexion.
This product was created to give a very natural look with a healthy glow. So if you are looking for a bb cream with high coverage and matt finish, this product is not for you.
