3 Simple skincare steps from Kanebo for exceptional complexion
In pursuit of supreme clarity
My beauty shelf is currently overflowing with various products but I'll never pass up the opportunity to try out new skincare. It's a task that always excites me and I'll gladly take it up with delight. More so when I learned that Kanebo's new The Exceptional range will help my skin achieve the perfect clarity in just three simple steps. Like most modern women would have you believe, any skincare regime that requires more than 15 minutes is a luxury that we wish we could afford. But I learned that with Kanebo, it doesn't have to be a compromise - luxurious pampering is part of The Exceptional experience.
Kanebo's The Exceptional three-step skincare collection includes The Lotion, The Emulsion and The Cream. A trio of products is all you'll need to ensure skin clarity, delivering 9 complete solutions from moisture, radiance, texture, smoothness, firmness and brightness to even skin tones, anti-wrinkle and anti-sagging. These are the six aspects that Kanebo have identified to be the keys to beautiful skin. I like the fact that the three products in The Exceptional are made to address these skincare concerns without stressful product layering or an extensive regime that is hard to follow.
The Exceptional experience
For the first step, I started with The Lotion to prep my skin after cleansing. What I noticed upon dispensing the clear liquid solution onto my palm is the distinct fresh scent. Called the Eternity Bouquet, the specially curated fragrance is a mix of floral and musk notes that is comforting to the sense and mind. As I pat the lotion on my face, the liquid immediately penetrate deep into the skin to leave it moisturise with a satiny finish. Next, I apply a pump of The Emulsion where the rich, milky texture work to further moisturise and soften the skin. The nourishing emulsion contains special oil to deliver plumpness and firm up the skin. I like how supple my face feels after. For the final step, I scooped out a pea-size of The Cream and dot all over my face before blending it in. Just a little bit goes a long way and this is true for the 10 botanical ingredients too play a crucial role to revitalise, regenerate and restore skin's youth. The creamy texture was luxurious on my face as it melts into the skin to give it a soothing veil.
With my less-than-stellar lifestyle and erratic sleeping hours, my skin is what I would term as a 'work in progress'. While I've only been using Kanebo's The Exceptional for the last three weeks, I'm enjoying the simple three-step experience so far. The most noticeable difference that I've seen on my skin is the immediate glow. I believe this has something to do with Kanebo's Clear Botanical Complex that includes pear juice ferment filtrate, watercress extract, geranium robertianum extract and aqua glucoside. This secret natural cocktail is formulated into each product and it works in harmony with the Light Reflection Technology to offer a unique approach to 'light' and 'shadow'. The Exceptional collection enhances the skin's clarity not only from the surface but also within. It helps to restore the epidermis and refine the texture with moisture and smooth radiance (hence, 'light'), while helping to prevent changes of pore shape and dark circles, signs of ageing, redness and uneven skin tone (the 'shadow').
The take away
With a rich history dating back 130 years, Kanebo has come a long way since establishing itself as a textile and silk trading company. The Japanese brand has evolved to be one of the most recognisable skincare experts in the beauty industry today. Kanebo is trusted to provide quality skincare, fusing science knowledge with natural ingredients, especially with the highly pure water sourced from Mount Fuji itself. Thus, you can be assured of a balance between skin clarity and harmony.
This philosophy can be traced back to its inspiration for creating products dedicated to women's beauty and well being. The Exceptional collection is a total skincare solution that is well suited for the women who want to address her skin concerns while achieving the perfect clarity with minimum fuss yet feel luxuriously pampered.
