After using the first step in double-moisturising, comes the second step, which is the normal moisturiser. Under the Kanebo Blanchir line, it is called the Milky Conditioner.
I like the texture of this milky conditioner which is like that of a liquid gel. The moisturiser is an opaque creamy colour, like condensed milk, that spreads very easily. I like that because it means you don’t have to use very much to cover your whole face.
There is a light scent but it doesn’t bother me. I like that it is light and soaks right into my skin nearly immediately. My skin feels hydrated and comfortable and it stays that way the whole day after I apply it in the morning. I’m not quite sure of its ingredients but I don’t think it has oil as a base. Usually, oil based products are heavier in texture but this one is light and does not leave a residue on my hands.
It can be used both day and night, and I usually just pour a bit into my palm, rub both my palms together then spread it on my face. So far, I’m only using it in the day because I use the Night Conditioner for night use.
This milky conditioner comes in 2 formulations – normal and moisture. Moisture is for those with dry skin. I use the normal one and I have not experienced any problems with it so far. In fact, my skin seems to look and feel better. I don’t know about the whitening properties, but I do experience a brightening of the skin texture. As I am using nearly the whole line so far, I don’t know if it is attributable to just one item in the line.
One thing I don’t like about it though, is the packaging. The bottle is hard plastic and you have to pour the emulsion out through a hole in the top. Its hard to control the amount that comes out, and there is a risk of pouring out too much. Also, when it finishes, it’ll be hard to get the residue out, which is a bit of a waste.
This retails for about RM168 for 100ml. Compared to many other department store brands, I wouldn’t say its very expensive, but if you are used to using something from the pharmacy/drugstore then it does seem expensive. For me, this one works so I will be sticking to it for now.
