Today, I am reviewing a product called Sensai Fluid Foundation from the brand Kanebo, which is a Japanese skin care company. This fluid foundation is available in 9 shades and the shades vary from region to region. I picked up FF202 Soft Beige for my moderately fair skin with warm undertones. It is beige with yellowish undertones. To know more, please continue to read.
Deeply moisturising foundation with 55% water content. Sheathes the skin in a delicate veil of moisture to provide daylong hydration while imparting a silky, healthy looking sheen to the surface.
Price & Quantity:
€43 for 30ml
How to Apply:
Apply sparingly over makeup base after double moisturising.
Sensai fluid foundation is packaged in a slim, cylindrical, glass bottle with a black coloured pump dispenser and a black coloured cap. This simple bottle comes packaged in a black coloured cardboard box.
My Experience with Kanebo Sensai Fluid Finish Foundation SPF 15:
I have always been advised to use liquid or fluid foundations for my combination to dry and sensitive skin. However, I prefer and find it convenient to use powder based foundations on regular basis and cream based foundations for special occasions. I have used liquid foundations from brands like Lakme, Revlon, L’Oreal and Jane Iredale. Sensai fluid finish foundation in shade FF202 Soft Beige is beige with yellowish undertones and suits my moderately fair skin with warm undertones.
Sensai fluid finish foundation has 55% water content, gives medium coverage and gives a natural dewy finish to my face. The texture is soft, silky, velvety fluid and blends easily with fingers. I am more comfortable in applying liquid foundations with my hands and fingertips. I am not used to applying liquid foundation with sponge or brushes. Sensai covers almost all flaws, like blemishes, uneven skin tone and gives an even smooth finish to my face skin. It does not block or accentuate pores, skin feels fresh and breathable.
It keeps skin hydrated and skin feels soft and supple. This foundation has an SPF of 15, so can be used during day time also. It does not dry out, irritate or break my skin. Lasting power is six to eight hours and more when applied with a base foundation. Has a nice and mild typical foundation fragrance, which I enjoy. It can be applied directly over moisturisers and skin creams, does not irritate or break my skin and can be used near eye contour area also. This is the first Sensai product in my makeup vanity and hopefully will try many more products after this experience.
I have used Kanebo Sensai hand cream, which a friend had gifted to me a couple of years ago. I am in love with this foundation, and am thankful to IMBB for giving me this opportunity to review Sensai Fluid Finish Foundation. It’s an awesome fluid finish foundation and very convenient for regular use, as well as for special occasions.
