Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!
So I'm going to make another BB cream review on the Holika Holika Petit BB line, I have one more that I need to own to actually be able to review all of the BB cream from that line which is the Pink Shimmering BB Cream. So anyways, back to the Essential Petit BB.
All of them have a range of SPF25-30, this one here has SPF30. I think the Orange Essential is basically a little something that works with all skintype as opposed to Moisture (dry skin), Clearing (oily skin), Watery (combination skin). I guess Essential can be something that nourishes your skin.
It's a bit creamier than the others, though the scent is almost similar to the Watery Petit but a little subtler than that. This BB cream gives you a semi-matte finish that you require a setting powder to set the BB Cream from streaking. I seriously love this BB cream, but I gave this baby to my little sister cuz I know she's been jealous about the amount of make-up I own. So yeah, I gave this to her, right after using once.
Although it's weird that I actually gave a review based on a one-day application, but I've been so familiar with their Petit BB Line that it's hardly a surprise that I know the texture and such. The application is wonderful, since it's creamy, it's easy to blend and it oxidize nicely to adapt itself to your skintone, it gave me a natural look, almost a no-makeup makeup look. It also cancels out my redness and gives a medium coverage to my acne scars, I almost can get away with just this and a setting powder, without any concealer.
So anyways, you may need to touch up with this BB Cream or blot after 3 hours, at least. This is actually a nice BB Cream that I would recommend to you all.I think I'll buy this, later on when I fly off to KL maybe. LOL, do they have Holika Holika in KL? I hope so.
