I was told about the Kanebo Blanchir Whitening Smoothing Conditioner ( Medicated ) when I visited my regular Kanebo salon for my facial. Its not a new product but its new to me and is recommended for oily skin.
The Blanchir Smoothing Conditioner is actually a treatment. It absorbs oil and mattifies the skin and helps to smooth and skin and reduce pore sizes. Its recommended for night use only and is supposed to help the skin control oil production too. It is only to be applied where needed – usually on the forehead and nose or the T-zone.
Does it mattify? Yes it does. It also makes your skin feel super smooth where you apply it. However, I don’t quite know about the pore reduction and I stopped using it after a while.
However, I’ve since discovered a new use for this cream – pimple cream! Seriously, its one of the best pimple creams I’ve ever come across! One tiny dab of this cream on an inflamed pimple and the next day, its either gone or reduced and the redness is gone. I think its to do with how it dries up the skin around it. You don’t end up with flaky skin like what you get with regular pimple creams like clearasil or oxy – just normal smooth skin with no pimples. Awesome!
Used as a pimple cream, it would take forever to finish so price wise its pretty good. However, it’d be too expensive to buy it just to cure pimples.
Pros: Wonderful for curing pimples, mattifies and smoothens skin
