How did your weekend go? Well, today is really muggy here in Ilocos so my boy and I decided to eat our breakfast out and grabbed ourselves some fruity flavored floats. Hahaha these drinks are keepin' me frenzied these past weeks!!! Seriously, nights were not complete without dosing up with either Lychee or Strawberry (Now, blame the fast food for the serious weight chalk up. Yikes!!!).
But before I can finally call it a night (ohhhh which means I have to drag myself tomorrow to work again) lemme just drop somethin' pretty and cute... check it out!!!
Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish is an all in one cream that functions as a base and sunscreen with its SPF25, and whitens or brightens the bare skin.

Packaging wise, this cream is popularly known as the "butterfly cream" in Korea because of its presentation. Honestly, I am wowed by the box alone hahaha. I so love anything pretty and cute. It is something I'll never get tired of no matter how I age hahaha.Below are the details on the sides of the box where all instructions are in Hangeul.
Again, the tub is purely LOVE. It comes in a pretty purple jar that is very very sturdy and a bit handy for travelling (it's not that big).
Also, at the bottom of the tub is the expiration date and mine says it's good until November 7, 2015.
Apart from the exquisite and princess-y twist-it-type cover it also has a a separate lid to protect the precious cream inside. The only thing they missed though is the spatula. I find it unhygienic to frequently dip in the fingers every time I apply it. Well, it can be solved by a tiny spoon though.
As for the cream, it is lusciously thick and white but has a kinda pinkish tint if you look closely.
It may also look scary white especially when used by a typical "morena" Filipina. I am already quite fair but still it looks really odd on my skin on initial application. This is supposed to be used just to revamp the bare skin a bit but I prefer using it as a primer instead.
But when it finally sets, it actually doesn't look like you have something on your face. (pic below is my bare hand)
Honestly, its sheerness can't provide coverage but this cream is great as always on fortunate ladies with flawless skin. It adds up radiance and somewhat evens out the tone of the skin. Since, I am not as lucky as the other girls, I like using this underneath my usual bb cream, liquid foundie or powder.
As for the oil control, which I expected this to provide better control which got me a bit dismayed since it greased up my skin faster than expected. Maybe the brightening effect makes me oil up.
This cream is perfect to ladies with healthy pores and unblemished skin. It provides instant dewiness that makes the skin lookin' radiant. Plus if you hate makin' your face with a lot of powders and foundies, this can make be an easy step to plump up the dull skin. On the other side, although this variant is meant for ladies with combination to oily skin, still oil control is a minus.
So that's it for tonight!!! Have a happy heart and by the way just a thought it is always rewarding to be nice to everyone!!!
