Review: Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Tint Bar

2. December 2014

I had pretty dry lips the last days and so I started to use my lip balms again. One of these is the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Tint Bar. This lip balm is supposed to give you lucious, jelly lips and moisturize and smoothen them on the same time.

Holika Holika is a korean brand with a magic like brand image. The products are designed to look pretty, and magical in their way. The Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Tint Bar doesn’t look very magical, but rather simple. The color of the packaging is a pale blue and has pink lettering. Actually, there is nothing special about the packaging :D It is simple, but with some color. There are three shades available: Cherry Kiss (No.1), Orange Kiss (No.2) and Pink Plumping (No.3). I own the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Tint Bar in shade Cherry Kiss .

The color of the bullet is a cherry red shade with small shimmer particles within. It has a subtle fruity sweet scent. According to the description I hoped that it will give a super glossy and moist finish, but the bullet is really hard and I don’t have the feeling that it really melts on my lips in order to moisturize them. But on the other hand, it feels somehow cooling and gives them a slight shine. The color is not really visible or anything. Basically, it has a very pale pink color, almost clear. Luckily, the shimmer particles aren’t too obvious either. The ingredients are good according to COSDNA. It even contains a UV-A and UV-B protection which is always useful.

All in all, this lipbalm is nothing special. It doesn’t hold up to its claim to be a jelly tint bar, because the consistency of the product doesn’t melt away nicely. It gives a light sheen to your lips and has a cooling effect, but other than this, I don’t think that it is worth so much money (there are lip bars which are much cheaper and more creamy). The Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Tint Bar contains 3.5 g and retails for around 11 US$. Did anybody try these?

      I thought it would be more jelly/glossy…but it is only a normal lip balm :/

    Oh ich würde mir den nur wegen der Verpackung kaufen :D

      Die Verpackung scheint bei vielen sehr gut anzukommen…:) Schade, dass es nur wie ein normaler Lippenpflegestift zu benutzen ist :/

    I was looking at this and wondering if I should pick some but this review is discouraging me. It’s too bad it doesn’t have any visible color.

      I was a bit dissapointed after trying the product…I thought at least that it would have some jelly/glossy effect….

    This is so cute but there’s no color! I think this would be make a great gift for a much younger girl though!

    • Frl. Schnee 30. December 2014 at 2:17

      I agree…youger girls would love this because of the packaging…especially since it only works like a lip balm…

    But wow… There’s really no color!

    • Frl. Schnee 30. December 2014 at 2:17

      I saw this product before, but I didn’t expect it to be that dissapointing XD

  • Elina 3. December 2014 at 22:16

    I think the bullet looks so fancy! Too bad it doesn’t really do what it promises. :(

      The design seems to be the only thing which is nice…a pitty it is not a good lip tint as I thought.
