HOLIKA HOLIKA Aqua Petite Jelly BB Cream #1 Light Beige (REVIEW)

After my long term CC cream finally be drained till its last drop, I decided to not repurchase the product and switch to another brand. Why? Because, aren't we all adventurous ladies?

I bet you all must have heard about this BB cream before as they are often voted as the holy grail BB cream by a hell lot of beauty vlogger: Michelle Phan, MeeJMuse, Sunnydahye, and a lot more!! YES, it is the HOLIKA HOLIKA Aqua Petite Jelly BB Cream!

They are famous for their light, watery, jelly like consistency that gives you a cooling effects and feeling that you have nothing on your skin. Not to mention durable and high coverage! It is very suitable for tropical, hot, and humid weather in the country I am living in. It also have SPF 20 PA++. I was swoon over the marvelous reviews and I manage to get mine at their stores here in Jakata for Rp 297,000. I bought the eye brow pencil and masks and I manage to get the member for Holika Holika here!

Lets start with the box. 

The infamous Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream Warning

There are some notes on the side of the box that catch my attention. They have a warning attached on the side of the box. This is quite rare. I was a little bit put off by the warning as I think that the product might consist of heavy or irritating substances that might troubled my skin. Well, you know, getting a warning sign even before trying out the product triggers the red light on my brain.
They include some storing and handling direction as well.

Next up on the other side of the box is the product description, direction to apply, and the ingredient. The main component of all is water. Just like the name of the product: Aqua Petit Jelly.

The little turn of about this product is that it contains paraben. As we all know, paraben is a common preservative used in cosmetic products, which in the long run might caused cancer. Oh, well. It is quite hard to find a paraben free Korean cosmetic products. I will be looking forward for the time when they can totally remove paraben from this products. But for now, I will be using this product. 

The product comes in a elegant glass packaging which is quite sturdy but I don't think it is travel friendly. I am worried that I might drop it and the glass packaging might break. They give you a white sponge as well. I assume that as the consistency might be watery, the sponge will be needed as the finishing touch to remove/dab off the excessive products.

I bought mine in #1 Light Beige because the shop assistant recommended me this shades over the #2 Natural Beige. My skin in naturally pale, somewhat of the Caucasian Pale, and I do not have any Caucasian Heritage, I think. (Although some of my aunties and my grandfather look like Caucasian). Let that just be an unsolved mystery and Lets gets back to the review.

The inside of the glass bottle is the BB cream and a spatula applicator attached on the cap. I am having a hygiene concern here.

Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream Packaging Consistency and Spatula
As you can see here the consistency is amazing. It lives up to its name, Aqua Petit JELLY. I have been pulling out the spatula for couple minutes while taking the pictures and yet the products still stays on its place, not moving much. I tried to pick it up and it feels like pudding jelly. You know the Paris Baguette Pudding, it feels exactly like that.
