[Adv + Giveaway] Kanebo Launches Freshel BB Cream

Friday, July 01, 2011

See the new tips above? I'm trying to share one tip with every entry, depending on the genre! :)

 I'm really ridiculously dark as compared to other bloggers omg!

In early June, I was invited by Kanebo to Drinks Culture to witness the launch of Kanebo's Freshel BB Cream.

This newly launched BB Cream is available in two different ranges - the Freshel Moisture Lift W Cream (as above image) and Freshel W Cream UV.

With so many different types of BB Creams I've received and reviewed, Freshel's BB Cream is different because it takes considerations to Asia's humid climate, women's preferred skin tone and their sensitivity towards fragrance.

Pumped full with hyaluronic acid, these Freshel BB Creams are capable to lock in moisture, keeping skin supple and hydrated throughout the hours of wear.

The power of Hyaluronic Acid

These days, I inspect the ingredients of my skincare products very thoroughly. In fact, I can say that Hyaluronic Acid is one of my favourite ingredients because it will definitely guarantee the whitening effect.

The pictures below are taken from beauty blogger, Joyce, who was there at the event with me.

We stained the paper with iodine, which is brown in colour, resembling the pigmentation we have on our face.

After the application of the Hyaluronic Acid on the pigmentation, an immediate bleaching effect takes place, without harming the paper. This shows that the Hyaluronic Acid is not only strong enough for the stubborn pigmentation, it is also gentle enough for our face.

The BB Creams are retailing at $33 per tube.

Apart from the launch of Freshel's BB Creams, I also got to try out Freshel White C Cleansing Oil.

Observing the emulsion power of the Kanebo make up remover

All the while, I've been trying out all sorts of make up remover. And sad to say, despite the years of searching, I haven't found one that made me go "whoa". I guess my standards are pretty high for a cleansing oil, because I'm so lazy.

You see, while you may be visiting a lot of beauty blogs and many talks about double cleansing, I am unfortunately one of the few who don't practice it often - even though I love my skin to bits and would do anything to maintain the current state.

What is double cleansing?

Basically, double cleansing is to wash your face again, after you've fully removed make up from it. There are many ways in double cleansing, for example:

1. Use cleansing oil twice to ensure that your skin is fully rid of any residual make up. This is pretty useful for people who needs to put on a lot of make-up when you're working.

2. Use your cleanser twice. This is only useful if you use very minimal amount of eye make up, which is usually more stubborn than your blusher, bronzer, foundation etc.

There are many other ways to double cleanse your face, all you need to do, is to google!

When I put this cleansing oil to test, I already had the mental preparation to do a double cleansing - Cleansing Oil first, then on to my cleanser.

The verdict

When I first massaged the cleansing oil onto my face, it was kind of oily. I was like, "Oh no, just another cleansing oil. *sighs*".

I left it on for a while for the oil to emulsify and dissolve my make up, while I sat and pouted because I had to clean my face agaaaaain.

However, when I rinsed my face with warm water, it was surprisingly enjoyable because I could feel the oil running away from my face. I knew I didn't need to double cleanse because my skin felt soft and clean. There was not a trace of those disgusting oily texture that most cleansing oil have. I foresee myself taking out the $24 to buy this cleansing oil when this sponsored bottle runs out. :)

There will be a GSS promotion by Freshel and Watsons stores from now till 27 July. You get to enjoy 30% off. The below 2 products are selling at $39.90 instead of the usual price at $57.
