I am disappointed by the lack of google-able information on Kanebo Freshel Moist Lift Mineral BB Cream. I couldn’t find the ingredients list aside from a vague blurb in the kanebo.sg website.
Moisture Ingredients [Yeast extract] will soften the skin that hardens from dryness. Penetrating [Adhesive Collagen] and [Double hyaluronic acid] sinks deeply and quickly into the skin.
To be honest, “yeast” and “adhesive” doesn’t sound enticing to me. This product has SPF 23 PA++ as stated on the website.
Unlike most BB creams, this doesn’t have strong ashy grey tones.
To all my light-medium yellow-olive ladies out there, this might be the bb cream you’re looking for. I’m currently in my summer shade right now so it’s about two shades too light. For reference, the back of my hand is an EXACT match to my chest, neck, and face (if the latter is not red and irritated).
Sadly, this bb cream only comes in one shade.
It gives a tiny bit of flash back BUT it will not make you look like a geisha in photos.
Texture and Application
Applying this didn’t involve hard core tugging despite the creamy texture. I consider this one of the easier-to-blend bb creams in the market. It’s like an emollient tinted moisturizer. It’s also not the type that sits on top of the skin. But on me, it tends to look like that because of the shade variance.
Here’s another photo. This time comparing Kanebo to the face base I found to be the closest match to my skin tone: L’Oreal Lucent Magique in Gold Shell (G4).
Put yourself at a 2-feet distance from the monitor and see how close L’Oreal exactly matches my bare skin.
On my oily skin, this can not be worn without a powder to set it.
Verdict: Still not jumping on the bb cream bandwagon.
