Holika Holika Petit BB Cream Watery SPF 25 PA++


In terms of makeup and skincare, BB creams are always one of my favorite because they can cover your skin imperfections yet still have many benefits for your skin. Those properties make them very convenient, perfect for daily use. Another thing with BB Creams is that you can actually use only the BB Cream and your skin will instantly look better.
I already tried some BB Creams, most of them are Etude and Skinfood's, but this is the first time I try Holika Holika's.
Please keep reading to know my reviews about this Holika Holika Petit BB Cream in Watery SPF 25 PA++.

Product Description
Petit BB Cream 30ml is the perfect travel size cream for on the go treatment and coverage! 
Contains Green Tea and Glacier Water for a natural and clear look.
How to Use:
After your cleansing routine. Apply an appropriate amount on the areas you desire such as the cheek, forehead, nose and chin by patting evenly. Use fingertips to spread gently until it has been completely absorbed.



Packaging
Like its name, Holika Holika Petit BB Cream in Watery has a cute packaging with green color and that little cat printed on it. As its name, the petit BB cream comes in a "petite" size (30ml). It's good! Because I don't use BB cream that often, and I don't want my BB creams expired when I can't finish them yet. Mini size also make this considered as travel friendly.
It has tube type applicator and the tiny hole makes it easier to use because I can squeeze without worrying the cream will come out too much.


Pigmentation & Quality
Holika Holika Petit BB Cream in Watery is (like the name) really watery and therefore so easy to spread and blend. The finish is semi matte. And I noticed that it soothes and moisturizes my dry skin. This BB Cream has slightly flowery smell that fades after few minutes.


Holika Holika Petit BB Cream in Watery has yellow undertone, evening out my skin tone perfectly. Its light to medium coverage maybe a downside for some people, but for me, it's okay because I don't like too much coverage. With this BB cream I can achieve that 'no makeup' makeup.
It stays nicely on my face for about 5 hours before I need to blot.

Price & Availability
I bought this on sale so it only costs me IDR48.000 or about USD4 (normally IDR 65.000 or about USD6). I got mine from online shop, so it may be cheaper than at official stores.

*****

OVERALL OPINION
Holika Holika Petit BB Cream in Watery is perfect for those with dry skin and yellow undertone. It does not only cover up blemishes but also moisturize and protects the skin from harmful UV rays with SPF25/PA++. Its petite size make it easier to bring and doesn't take much space on makeup bag. 
I think it's a good product for those who want to try BB Creams and do not want to spend much.
