Holika Holika – Petit BB Cream Aqua

Holika Holika – Petit BB Cream Aqua

I had so much interest in my recent Korean special beauty reviews (where I posted about new beauty products from Korea as part of an initiative with BNT News International) that I thought I would continue this theme. This Petit BB Cream from Korean beauty brand Holika Holika was recently recommended to me by another blogger on Twitter and I thought I’d try it out. A lot of Korean brands are really easy to get hold of here in the UK, either via eBay or Amazon, and Holika Holika is one of them. There are five different varieties of the Petit BB Cream – Clearing, Aqua, Bouncing, Moisturizing and Shimmering. I went for the Aqua as I have quite dehydrated skin and this one promises to add moisture back. Each of the five varieties only comes in one shade which is a bit of a shame, but as with most BB creams as they’re quite light and sheer they do blend in with your own skintone – I just wouldn’t recommend any...

Kiehl’s – Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream

Kiehl’s – Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream

A few weeks ago I visited the Kiehl’s store in York for a personalised complimentary facial, you may want to read my review about what happened and the new skincare regime that was recommended for me. One of the products that was recommended for me was this Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream and I was sent away with a sample-size tube to try at home. Now despite the rather long and complicated name (a lot of Kiehl’s products have these!) this is actually a really great simple product and I loved it so much that last week I went back to store and treated myself to a full size product. Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream is such a great product. It’s a really light base, very much like a light tinted moisturiser that you can just rub onto your skin each morning – I just use my fingers and it doesn’t need much blending as it’s so sheer. Most of the BB Creams that I’ve tried in the past...

REN – Satin Perfection BB Cream

REN – Satin Perfection BB Cream

I received this mini sample of REN Satin Perfection BB Cream in the Latest In Beauty British Beauty Blogger Dream Box that I purchased a few months ago. REN is a brand that I admire very much – their products contain only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and are free from synthetic ingredients – and my favourite skincare product of 2013 was REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I still can’t really make my mind up about BB Creams, I find a lot of them give a shiny plasticky finish to the skin, plus as I have combination skin my nose and chin often find them too oily. However this REN Satin Perfection BB Cream gives a nice satin finish which I was really pleased about – my skin doesn’t look shiny at all – and then I finish it with a dusting of Clinique Blended Face Powder. The product itself is a thick creamy foundation-like base and it slides onto the skin really easily. I’ve been applying it...
