Since my last break out from using a BB Cream, i stayed away from it because i didn't want to go through the horrible phase of clogged pores again.

However, when I was given the KOSÉ SEKKISEI range to try out, I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE BB CREAM. Honestly speaking, i didn't expect myself to be such a HUGE KOSÉ fan but i am now a convert after trying the range for myself.

When you apply the KOSÉ SEKKISEI White BB CREAM on your skin, it feels so light and barely there - really different from other BB Creams which are usually much thicker. It makes my complexion look so radiant and flawless! It is really light so don't expect heavy coverage from it. It is really suitable for every day use because i used it every day for 1 week straight! No break outs, no clogged pores!!! It's been almost 1 month since i started using it, i'm almost done with it and definitely getting myself another!

The KOSÉ SEKKISEI White BB CREAM contains SPF40/PA+++. It cares for the skin while covering blemishes and dullness naturally. A whitening BB cream with oriental plant extracts, creating lasting beautiful, translucent skin. It is available in 2 shades, 01 Light Natural Skin Tone and 02 Natural Skin Tone. I am using shade 02 but am considering to switch to shade 01 when i get my next bottle. It is priced at $39/bottle which i think is really reasonable for such a good product!

The other 2 products are Sunscreens.

You can use it on your face or body. For me, i use the BB Cream on my face and the KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Gel on my body. A lot of people don't like applying sunscreen on their body because of the sticky feeling, I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND. This product does not leave that greasy eekie feeling at all! It is absorbed by your skin immediately and it is so light. There’s SPF50+/PA++++. It protects your skin from the harmful UV damage and also hydrates your skin like a moisturizer. This can also be used as a make up base if you don't want to use a BB Cream. The KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Gel is retailing at $50.

There's another Sunscreen in this range which is the KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Milk. It is a milky sunscreen with an emulsion formula and oriental plant extracts. Just like the Gel, it has SPF50+/PA++++. The Milk one is Waterproof which means you can apply it and go swimming or before you go do outdoor activities which will make you perspire! I would recommend the Gel for everyday use and the Milk on days you will be doing outdoor sports. The milk is also very light and non-sticky but i personally like the texture of the Gel better for everyday use.
