[Review] Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Pore Cover BB (#1) + Pore Cover Base

Hi guys!!

Yes, i know it has been a longgggggggggggggggggg time since i blogged. I’m really busy with school work until now, which is a study break before the mid semester exams. T_T

So i was just checking my stats and i’m really shocked that during this mia period, people still viewed my blog..! Which is why i got inspired to at least get this review post out.

So today i’m reviewing on Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Base and BB cover. I got this from Testerkorea, which i did a haul blog post about (here)

I decide to review them together since i think they are supposed to be worn together? So here goes~




A whole bunch of Korean there but i love how the expiry date is just stated there.

The pore cover base is just like a primer for your face. The texture of it is silky and light. It comes in only 1 shade.

As in the pic, it’s not full coverage at all, but for the pores, it did a bit of job though. It can be layered as well.

Final verdicts

  • Handy for travelling – small sized and easy storage but lack a pump for hygiene purposes.
  • Pore covering effect, not very strong, would be like a 6.5-7/10
  • Pore cover bb only comes in 2 colours, so there isn’t many options and the shades are both catered to ladies with lighter skin.
  • Price wise, affordable. Less than $10 SGD on TesterKorea for each item.
  • Able to layer the products as it is sheer.
  • Staying power, i wouldn’t say i was disappointed since this isn’t supposed to stay long but i did notice that after like a 2 hrs, it did feel like some part of my face was without the makeup. Might be due to my excessive sweating and oily face though.
  • Would recommend for lighter skinned tone ladies who don’t need full coverage base.
  • Score – 3.5/5
