KATE Mineral Gel BB Cream

Much to my excitement, KATE (by Kanebo), released their Mineral BB Gel Cream with the promise of providing “superb coverage with a light finish”. I could’t wait to try it as I have a great fondness for Japanese BB creams.

I bought this from Adam Beauty for the reasonable sum of £12.00 including shipping from Hong Kong. I opted for the #OC-C shade which is the middle ground of the three available and fortunately, this is a good colour match.

I prefer BB creams with a high SPF and this does well to satisfy my criteria with its SPF 30 PA++ rating.

The Mineral BB Gel cream is without alcohol and fragrance and is formulated with jojoba, olive and almond oil as well as water soluble collagen. It does a good job of keeping my skin moist without being greasy nor too oil absorbent. 

The coverage is medium – sheer and the gel factor makes it a breeze to apply. The thing most striking about this BB cream is its lasting power. It clings to the skin in a most light and natural manner yet lasts all day without going awry. 

I am most impressed with this BB cream and would recommend it to others with dry/combination skin. Great value!
