Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish in Combination/Oily

Got this along with my most recent Gmarket haul. I wanted to try it out because of all of its properties (sunscreen, whitening, brightness) and because their commercial was so cute!:




It is housed in a plastic jar and contains 50ml. I got it on sale for ~$6.78 during Holika Holika's 30% off sale on Gmarket.

It has a thick, mousse-like texture making it less easy to apply. A problem with the cream is that it makes your skin white. If you are very fair and light then it wouldn't be a problem. This cream is marketed as a light bb cream, but for girls with color this can't be used on its own.

With cream

As you can see, it makes my face unnaturally white and bleh so I have to use a foundation/tinted moisturizer/bb cream over it.

After 11 hours

After a full day of work, my face is still nice and bright. I like this cream because it makes my skin bright and lasts long, but I can't use it on its own and I'm a little disappointed in the SPF level.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!
I think this product is a good buy if you're looking for something to brighten your complexion. I haven't used it long enough to see if it actually whitens, but it does give that immediate "white bright" look. I also haven't been using it because the spf level is low. Also, the price isn't too bad (about $11 US) and there's a lot of product!

I hope this helps! And I followed you back! : ]
