Aqua Petite Jelly BB Cream – $12.89 from Amazon
I have been anticipating this review for Holika Holika Aqua Petite Jelly BB Cream for quite some time now. This BB cream is suitable for pale skin ( I am extremely fair skinned) and unfortunately only found this BB cream in two shades, #1 which is a light-warm beige and #2, which I have, which is more of a cool tone for fair skin.
This BB cream is so hyped in South Korea and is one of their top sellers, so I was really excited to try it out for myself. The texture reminds me of pudding; it’s light, smooth, fluffy, and blends very well. It is virtually fragrance free as well and the packaging is absolutely adorable! I love the flower shaped glass bottle and sturdy screw on lid.
When I was still living in California, I wasn’t thrilled with this product to be honest because the air their is dry, and my skin is normal-dry. So wearing it on it’s own felt a bit tight on my face. I did mix it with Etude House’s Nymph Aura serum, which is another fantastic product, especially if you’re trying to achieve the wet skin look which is a huge beauty trend in South Korea.
Now that I’m settled in Queensland, Australia, where it’s extremely humid, I wear a light layer of Aqua Petite Jelly BB Cream and finish with a setting spray, Urban Decay’s All Nighter, and my makeup lasts all day. I’m happy I tested this BB cream out for a few months and in different climates to get an overall idea of how well this product was formulated since it is such a huge brand and product in South Korea.
Holika Holika Aqua Petite Jelly BB Cream:
Affordable at $12.89 USD
Cute & Sturdy Packaging
Long Lasting Coverage
Only Available in 2 Shades – Fair & Light Beige
A Bit Dry for Dry-Normal Skin in Dry Climate
Overall, the coverage is fantastic, color is perfect for fair complexions like mine and if need be, you could adjust the product if the formula is a bit dry for your skin type. I will definitely consider purchasing this BB Cream in the future again, but I do have many more products to try out for the Beauty section of AmbyCakes.
