Holika Holika Sweet Cotton pore cover bb cream in shade soft beige


I totally love how Koreans cosmetic companies sell their products in most adorable packaging you can imagine e.g a hand cream in a pear shaped container or a blush in a macaroon shaped compact. This bb cream by holika holika is no exception. The pink and yellow striped squeezable tube intensifies my cravings for candy.








Quantity:30ml
Price 7.5$

This bb cream smells as sweet as a candy the scent is not over powering. It vanishes after few minutes on application. This bb cream comes in two shades only which can be a bummer of you are dark skinned but for me this turned out to be a blessing since the lightest shade in the range matched my skin perfectly









i once swatched Garnier b.b cream in a store and it oxidized immediately to a very unhealthy orange color. But I am pleased to tell you guys that this b.b cream does not oxidize at all
It has a cream like texture and dries down to a matte finish. Perfect for oily skin but if you have dry skin you should either moisturize your skin well prior to application or steer clear of this b.b cream because it accentuates the dry patches on the skin. It provides mild to medium coverage. Blurs acne scars,moles and pores slightly. The formula is very lightweight so on application it didn't feel like it was clogging any pores.







i think is best for everyday use as it contains SPF for UV rays protection and blurs out imperfections too . More over I didn't experience any breakouts
I would really recommend this bb cream if you have oily skin because its last for 5-6 hrs on the skin and starts to disappear slightly on the t zone after that .
