Review : Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream

Hello loves!

I have this deluxe size CC Cream from Holika Holika that I got during their branch opening at SM Fairview. This is my second CC Cream so I was excited to see how it will work on my skin.

This is in sample size.
The regular size which is 50ml is Php 855.00.

The shade I got is 1 or Pink Beige.

The sample size comes in a tube. The regular size is also in a tube but it has a pump to dispense the product.

Here's the product on the back of my hand

blended in an area at the back of my hand

The smell is nice and soothing. The consistency is thinner compared to BB Cream and this one isn't as white as the first CC cream I've tried. I actually like that since it is closer to my skin tone.
Here are before and after pictures of my cheeks:

The top one is my bare cheek while the bottom photo is with the CC Cream.

It gives very little coverage but it lightened my skin and gave it a dewy finish. I don't use it alone since I need more coverage to hide my dark spots from acne. I usually top it off with BB cream or a liquid foundation for that desired coverage and to also balance my skin color.

So to sum it off:

What I LIKE:
- Feels light on skin
- Love the smell
- Has SPF32 and PA++
- Evens skin tone
- Dewy effect
- Easy to blend
- Shade is close to skin tone
- Locally available

What I am NEUTRAL about:
- The price 
- This is more of a makeup base with skincare. I like coverage. Haha. :P
- Holika Holika doesn't have much branches yet but you can always buy online.

- Not much oil control
- Staying power when used alone is only around 3 hours on my oily skin

Would I buy again?
Maybe... but I usually like trying out new brands. :P

So what do you think of the Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream? Would you consider trying this? If you've tried it, what are your thoughts? I'd love to hear yours. :)



  1. It is bad it has alchohol, ı prefer CC's without alchol because they gave me break outs :( Thank you so much for the helpful review^^

  2. I think I might skip this one. Hehe. Medyo combi ang skin ko and may nahiyangan na akong foundation routine which gives me full coverage till evening. Combining stuff and such. Haha! Kaya hirap magpalit ng foundation routine if it works so well na for you. xD


  3. Looks like a new foundation I may want to try...I would set it with powder so I hope that will stretch its lasting power! I'm so surprised how the color changed so well!

  4. Merve - You're welcome. I'm glad I was of some help. :)

    Gellie - True. It's hard to find the perfect foundation and I'm glad you found yours. :)

    Sharlynn - It's worth a try! I hope you like it too! :D
