Beauty Loot: Kanebo Freshel White C Mineral BB Cream SPF 41PA ++
with Kanebo BB Cream
I was impressed when I used it for the first time. I actually applied more than what was necessary and I ended up like a Korean movie star... no kidding! Like no pores and all. Super pore less if there is a word hahaha
Face of the day (FOTD):
- Kanebo Freshel White C Mineral BB Cream UV in Natural Beige
- The Body Shop eye definer in Taupe
- Fanny Serrano lipstick in Tweedia
- The Color WorkShop Powder Blush
BB Cream is short for Blemish Balm Cream. According to Wikipedia, it is initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect , soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post laser scars acne and other blemishes.
Below is the step by step procedure on how I work on the BB Cream on my face:
Freshel White C Mineral BB Cream UV (50g) PhP960
STEP 1: Apply a small amount of BB Cream on to the palm of your hand.
I have learned my lesson so the photo above shows the usual amount I apply on my entire face.

STEP 2: dot your face and blend the cream well in circular motion. That's it!
You can opt to use a wet sponge or a brush to do the blending. You know me, I can do make up on my entire face without using a single make up brush lol
You can also apply a loose powder or a powder foundation after for a more matte finish. I apply it once during the day before I go out of my house and there is no need for a retouch.

What I like about Kanebo BB Cream:
- Creamy yet lightweight
- Easy to blend
- No greasy after feel
- Adjustable coverage- just apply more
- Dewy look
- Comes in a tube
- Not messy
What I don't like:
My camera can sometimes be deceiving if you can't see the difference. You just have to see me in person! In fact, when my blogger friends- Noemi, Rowena and Michelle met up yesterday in Taibun, Noemi Dado (@momblogger) can't help herself and asked what I applied on my face. She even complimented my skin that day ; p
This sealed the deal of my love affair with Kanebo- Made in Japan.
Kanebo Freshel White C Mineral BB Cream UY comes in 2 shades- Natural Beige and Medium Beige.
