iWhite is getting a lot of hype these days, especially after they revamped their packaging and beauty bloggers/vloggers started raving about their products. This was so apparent with their Aqua Moisturizer, which is a big hit to most people. I've also tried that product before but I will save my review for that in a later post. Today, we are going to be talking about their newly released bb cream.
The BB Cream is called BB.Holic. It has been in the market for quite some time now but I think it is not yet available nationwide as I still haven't seen this particular product in local drugstores and supermarkets near my place. I had to go grab one when I dropped by SM Makati, just to be able to try this one. This explains why I wasn't able to review this product early on.
For now, BB.Holic only comes in sachet. Each sachet contains 4ml and costs PHP24.50. It is good for those of you who wants to try the product out first and is also perfect for short travels. I'm not sure if they will be releasing a full sized version of this one. Hopefully, they do so that you can save a few pesos per net weight. However, it is already quite affordable as it is. Compared to other local BB Creams, this one is more expensive per net weight but compared to other Korean BB Creams, this one is around the same price or maybe even cheaper. Oh, and did I mention this is made in Korea too?
I got this in the shade Beige, which is the darker shade out of the 2 selections. I don't know what possessed me to get this shade but apparently, I was influenced by other reviewers and ended up getting beige. It is a tad bit darker than my skin tone.
You appreciate the coverage better on my first impressions video although I will be including some screenshots for those of you who do not have time to watch an 11-minute video. This product has light to medium coverage.
The consistency reminds me of the Aqua Moisturizer from the same brand. It feels smooth and watery once you blend it using your fingertips. It is very lightweight.
It has a glowy finish. It does not set to a matte finish, but I prefer that it doesn't because my face doesn't look flat. I suggest setting this with powder if you have oily skin.
This particular product lasted me a good 6 hours without melting on my face on a hot and humid weather. There will be a bit of fading but it won't completely fade away.
This BB Cream is a very good one. I can see why a lot of beauty bloggers and youtubers like this product. It is lightweight, smells good and has the perfect coverage as daily base makeup. I would've recommended this to anyone out there if only it didn't break me out. Yes, it broke me out. :( To find out more about that, you can watch my first impressions video which will be linked through the photo below. I wouldn't stop you from buying this product as it is really a good performing bb cream. You just have to make sure you're not sensitive to iWhite ingredients. ;)
