Hello everyone! Tonight I have a short review for you:
Holika Holika Aqua Fantasy Cream
The packaging says:
"Fantastic moisture care with aqua energy of wonderland where those one icebergs and hot spring water."
I got this sample from the Holika Holika store in South Korea last summer. It is the last step of their 4-step Aqua Fantasy line (the moisturizer step).
Since I only had the cream, I used this sample with my normal face care routine: Missha Strawberry Latte face cleanser and Missha Super Aqua toner.
Since Holika Holika is a newer company, and they seem to market to a young audience, I did not expect too much from their skin care lines. I just thought they were all about cute packaging, trendy items, and good marketing.
This is the second skin care product I've tried from Holika Holika, and I must say, I'm pretty impressed by the quality I've seen from them so far!
I have "normal" skin, not too oily, not too dry. I use lotion in the winter to combat dryness, and either skip it or use lighter products in the summer. Pretty much any skincare item with "Aqua" or something else in the name that implies water seems to work really well for my skin type. (For example, I LOVE anything that H2O makes.) This cream was no different...
I really liked it!
The Aqua Fantasy cream was clearish-white and had a light gel texture. It was obviously water-based, and not at all creamy or greasy. It almost felt like a thick toner rather than a cream. The smell was light and similar to that of other "marine" products. It quickly absorbed and left my skin silky smooth and firm. The next morning my skin was still silky with no added shine or oil.
This is a great product that I would definitely buy. If your skin can use a little moisture, but you don't like heavy products, this might be just what you are looking for! I think it would make an especially great product for warmer weather, or more humid, tropical climates. I could see myself using this in the summer months when my usual moisturizer is a little too much.
Have you ever purchased Holika Holika products? What did you think?
