Finding a BB cream that perfectly matches your skin type can be a nightmare his. I've probably gone through over 10 brands of BB Cream trying to find the right one, but there is always a mistake – too greasy, too heavy, too little cover, smells weird, feels sticky, I look like a ghost – the List goes on, even though I've gone through so much experimenting with BB cream I'm determined to find the perfect one because it saves so many steps in my make-up routine. I like to keep my routine as easy as possible, and BB cream helps cover, sun protection, and moisture that I need at the same time. (See also: Are Semi Permanent BB Tattoos the Next Microblading?)
When I decided to try the Pore Clearing Petite BB Cream by Holika Holika ($ 9, a mazon.com), you can only imagine How surprised I was to learn that it would be the last BB cream I would ever buy. This Korean beauty product is all I could hope for from my greasy, acne prone skin: it covers my blemishes just enough without feeling heavy, smoothes the skin texture, dulls without drying, soothes redness and provides sunscreen. This particular BB Cream contains Tea Tree Oil, which is known for treating acne and reducing pores so I do not have to worry about wearing it (and I never have!).
Even if you do not have the same skin type as me, there's probably a Holika Holika BB cream for you. The entire BB cream series has been developed for other skin problems, from anti-aging to dry or dull skin. Another outstanding customer favorite? The Bouncing Petit BB Cream, which tightens the skin with ingredients that prevent collagen breakdown. Customers love the fact that it moisturizes without getting into their facial lines.

"Bouncing works perfect for me, giving my skin a nice, wet look," wrote one buyer. "I have dry, mature skin (44 years old) with one or two tiny lines, it's very moisturizing and makes my skin look so soft and does not settle in fine lines."
Another customer raved that she was never badly made up day after buying the Holika Holika Pore Clearing BB Cream. "When I used this product, it grew with me, I noticed that my skin looked younger (I'm 43) and I really think I look better overall, so far I've tried three different BB creams and plan on doing so stay, "she wrote. "I just did not have a bad make-up day since I started, and that's weird, I often have days when I feel my make-up is not covering well or looking dry or showing any pore."
