My Opinion:
I had this product for quite some time and I have noticed in holika's webpage that they come in a different container now, and I'm not sure if they still have the same formula.

It took me so long to review this product, because I'm just unable to decide if I like it or not. Let's see, I love the texture and the coverage (low), it evens out my skin tone, it feels very watery and light on the skin and it smells amazing, a really clean scent, but what I don't like about it, is that it doesn't blend when my skin is not at its best.

When my skin is hydrated and exfoliated it looks amazing, otherwise it won't blend, it would look like a layer of product on top of my skin and it clings to any dry patches, please note that I don't even have dry skin.

Another issue would be the amount of product to apply, you really need to try it out yourself, because if you apply too much it would look cakey, this is not a buildable product.
