Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for February 5th, 2010

Impress is  premium skin care line of Kanebo and it has pleasant aromatic citrus fragrance which powered by 16 natural fragrances. Amid the range, the most popular Impress lotion had been voted as best lotion in Japan by several beauty magazines. Kanebo Impress range is technology-backed anti-aging treatment that targets DNA repairing, improves wrinkle and pigmentation, firm up and rejuvenate for a lively younger skin. According to Kanebo.

 

 

Kanebo Impress Lotion II (THB3500/150ml)

 

 

There is 2 types of the Impress lotion, Type I for Fresh and Type II for Moist and smooth. The watery clear lotion was feeling lightweight with tiny viscous, absorbed by skin in a short while, keeping skin hydrated without tackiness. It was also not being provocative to my sensitive skin in the fickle moment, hence gentle enough. Besides, I tried it for 5 minutes “lotion mask” (lotion+cotton pads) as well. The instant moisturizing effect was average, perhaps the tiny viscous consistency was not suitable for lotion mask. Personally I think this is gentle, soothing and very moisturizing. Concerning the expensive price tag, I doubt if it worths the value.

Kanebo Impress Emulsion II (THB4400/100ml)

 

 

The sample given is Type II, which has lightweight milky consistency. The emulsion quickly settled a moisturizing film on skin, leaving skin moist and soft. No tackiness and totally comfortable. It reminded me of the texture of Chanel and Shiseido emulsions. The moisture was quite enough for my combination skin  in air-conditioned room when used together with Impress lotion II. Applying too much could lead to clog pore. After all, the consistency is loveable, best for day use because it contains chemical sunscreen (Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate). If the lotion was not high-priced and contained unfavorably ingredients, I would love to purchase one to try it deeper.
