Kanebo Freeplus Base Make Soft Nuancer in Milky Green SPF11 PA+

Some of my readers might know that my favorite skincare line is from Freeplus. Freeplus is made by Kanebo for sensitive skin-types and is very mild and free of all the irritating stuff found in many other cosmetics. I´ve been using the Maintenance Care Lotion and Emulsion for the past 9 months or so and I am very happy with them (though I strayed and got some Kao Curel stuff which seems to be a good but cheaper alternative!)

I reviewed a couple of items here: Click!

Anyway, Adambeauty has several items from the Freeplus range up for grabs and this Base Make Soft Nuancer (a makeup base) was a total steal at US$15 incl. shipping (add US$2 per order for registered mail) while it actually retails for 2625 Yen (about US$29) for a 25g tube.
Since I have quite a lot of redness in my face and green is great to combat this I settled on the Milky Green color (you can also get Milky Yellow).

The Base Make Soft Nuancer comes in a simple green squeeze-tube and since I always need a little it will last quite a while I am sure.
It´s a smooth slightly thick cream with a good coverage ability but it manages to not make my face look green or ashy. I am not sure if it would work for very tan skin-tones but I guess it could create an ashy cast.

I seriously love this stuff! I use a tiny dollop (about pea size) to apply this to my whole face and it evens out the redness on my cheeks and other imperfection so nicely! It really does a great job at evening out my skin-tone!

Note: The swatch above was taken on my arm. I didn´t blend the base in, just spread it lightly to show the greenish tone. When it´s blended it doesn´t look that green on me.

This base also makes a great smooth base for my foundation and feels moisturizing.
This is free of parabens, alcohol and fragrance and is non-comedogenic (shouldn´t clog pores).

For me all in all this is a big yay and my favorite makeup base purchase in a long time (I also got one from DHC, Maquillage and Kose Grendaine recently which I haven´t reviewed yet.)
