Holika Holika Moisture Petit BB SPF 30 PA++

The Moisture Petit BB SPF 30 PA++ was a freebie from Holika Holika as I hauled products worth more than 60000 Won (around US$55). That´s quite a good freebie if you ask me as the tube is a 30ml size, so possibly full-sized.
 
I think the tube looks cute, I really like that cat and the purple colors used.
To be honest I was quite out of the BB loop in favor of regular foundation as most foundations just look better and many BB creams have the tendency to get clumpy or cakey when topped with powder. Also the color match wasn´t always ideal and the heavy silicone feeling turned me off, too.

Anyway, the Moisture Petit BB is a thick smooth cream with a distinctive floral scent. It´s rather strong but fades some minutes after application (or my nose gets used to it...whatever). It offers incredible coverage even for a BB cream so a little of this stuff gives me almost flawless skin covering all the redness and small freckles on my cheeks.

The color is very light with a slight yellowish tone. It blends in perfectly with my skin and dries down to a smooth but not greasy finish within a few minutes taking the heavy feeling out of the cream.

Lasting power is good, when I wear this on my lazy no-makeup days without powder I reapply this after about 4-5 hours (if I am out in the sun).
Like most other BB creams this doesn´t like to be combined with powder as it can look cakey and blotchy but since it feels very comfortable without powder and has this gorgeous dewy glow this is a nice product all in all.

WOW! that seriously looks good for a freebie! One thing that turns me off about BB creams are definitely the limited shades (which NEVER EVER matches me..>__<)

This BB cream reminds me a lot of the Maybelline BB cream (in shade 01). Guess it's the Korean version? :-)
