bb cream review : holika holika aqua petit jelly bb
there is a plastic cap inside, i didn't remove it, just opened it half.
now.. what i think about this cute bb jelly..
first of all, i admit, it's the packaging and the cute name and concept that attracted me to buy and try this product. i just can't resist such a cute product!
so yes, the packaging is cute but at the end it's also the cute packaging that became a down side of this product. it's a jar, which is not to hygienic, you have to dip your finger back in and out.. or spatula. well, spatula not really work well for me. i used to have spatula but then i lost it.. i mean.. it must be somewhere in my drawer but i just couldn't find it. Using the sponge is also not hygienic. you have to wash it regularly (well yeah, i admit.. i'm the lazy type).
next is the bb jelly itself. yup, it's not a bb cream..it's a bb jelly! the texture really is like jelly. not creamy or liquid, but jelly-thick-like. just imagine a custard.. it's quite similar. ohh.. and it has a nice sweet scen too.
back to the texture and this bb jelly, once i applied on my face, it felt light but also moisturising. it doesn't feel heavy like foundation, but cover my face well. i really like how this bb gave me enough moisturizer during the day. i think it is suitable for both summer and winter, which is great!!
and then the shade, i chose number 2 which is the darker shade. and on the swatch it gave me a little orange tone, which is great, as it made my face looks fresh (imo). i like the shade, it suite me.
overall, i really like this bb jelly. i would put this on my fav list of bb cream but the jar packaging a little bit annoyed me. not just because the hygienic purpose but also it's too bulky and not convinient to travel. it's not something i want to put or carry around in my bag, also not something i will pack inside my travel luggage. But for daily use when i'm home, it's a good one!
