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. 

Bare face

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! : ]
