[Cosme Review] Kanebo Fréshel White C BB Cream UV

Hey peeps!

Kanebo Fréshel White C BB Cream UV

Today's post will be a review on Kanebo's Fréshel White C BB Cream UV!

I recieved this product from Nuffnang on the 31st of December 2010 and was so excited since this is my first blogging contest. The winner for this contest will get to a Kanebo hamper worth over a hundred dollars!
I so wanna win this cos after using the BB cream, I'm addicted to it!

First of all, I want to clarify that although this was given to me free to do a review, what I say in this entry is what I feel about this product and not just to win this contest. *I cross my heart they are all true* HAHA!

So to get started, below are some facts about Kanebo's Fréshel White C BB Cream:

About Kanebo Fréshel White C BB Cream
A perfect cream with UV protection for an instant finish. Completely cuts strong UV rays while providing a fade-resistant and smooth finish. The BB cream conditions the skin to have a lucid tone with natural color while making dark spots less visible.

Works as an essence, emulsion, cream, sunscreen and tinted makeup base. A highly functional cream that not only serves as a skincare product, it also helps even out your skin tone before any makeup.

Main functions of Kanebo Fréshel White C BB Cream UV:
1. Moisturizes the skin (contains plenty of adhesive collagen, hyaluronic acid and other moisturizing ingredients keeping skin soft and moist)
2. Covers pores and dullness
3. Protects against UV rays and resists fading (SPF 32/PA++ for daily protection against harmful sunrays)
4. Quick & light makeup application

Colour: Comes in 1 shade only. (Looks more yellow undertone to me which is great cos asians are mostly have a yellow undertoned skin)
Size: 50g

What I like about this product:
-  Has a very lightweight texture when applied, face doesn't feel like there's any makeup on
-  Despite its lightweight texture, it has quite a good coverage
-  Unlike most BB Creams, Fréshel White C BB Cream does not give me the problem of having oily skin after spending hours outside. Gives a very "mattified" and powdered feel
-  Glides on my skin easily
-  Evens out my skin tone without having to put on heavy foundation
-  Therapy for my skin even when I'm having makeup!
-  High UV protection! <3 (I'm not very fond of the sun ya see?)
-  Great for people with a tight schedule in the morning, just 1 step and you are ready to start the day with a flawless face!

-  There might be ingredients in this product that might cause skin irritation (I did not experience any so far, please check for main ingredients at the bottom of this page to see if you are allergic to any of them)
-  Only 1 shade available, which means there is a chance that this BB cream might not match your skintone 
Without flash
With flash - looks scaringly yellow, but don't worry, it's not that scary XD
 Step-by-step to a flawless skin!
1. Cleanse face
2. Tone
3. Moisturize/ apply daily lotion
4. Squeeze a small amount on back of hand before using fingers to spread it out evenly on face
5. Finish off with loose powder to set!
*For a higher coverage, apply foundation/ concealer after Step 4 and finish off with Step 5.

Overall, I would rate Kanebo Fréshel White C BB Cream UV a 4/5 (1 for improvement so they will have even better products!!! hahaha!)
