Kanebo's The Exceptional Range Is Fashion Buyer And Blogger Samantha Chan’s Secret To Always Looking Camera-Ready
She’s a mother of two boys, a buyer for her own Sydney-based fashion business Luxe Fashion Boutique, and an influencer with 43.6k followers on Instagram. Yet Samantha Chan, who goes by the online moniker of Miss Luxe, always makes it a point to hit the gym despite a jam-packed week to be in her best form.
“Exercise always gives skin a great glow,” Samantha shared.
“A typical day for me starts from waking up and prepping the boys for school, then I go to the gym before work, head to the office and go home for dinner after work.”
We spoke to her just before she hit the gym to check out her must-haves in her gym bag, which included her Versa Gripps wrist wraps, water bottle, almonds, an outfit for her meeting, and a Lego toy left behind by her boys.
Of course, we also wanted to know her secret to flawless and radiant skin throughout the day.
“After the gym, it’s important to cleanse properly, and what I like using is the Kanebo Refreshing Powder Wash,” she said.
Samantha follows up with Kanebo’s The Emulsion from The Exceptional range to keep her skin moisturised and prepped for her makeup.
“I like a natural coverage because I don’t like to look like I’m wearing a lot of makeup. So what’s important to me in a foundation is something that can last all day without cracking or looking cakey,” Samantha revealed.
Her base makeup of choice? Kanebo’s The Primer and The Cream Foundation, the latest additions to the Japanese brand’s The Exceptional range that combines skincare and makeup.

Infused with The Exceptional’s Clear Botanical Complex which helps to clarify the complexion, boost hydration as well as strengthen and restore the skin’s barrier, The Primer and The Cream Foundation also boast a precise and buildable coverage that improves the appearance of skin for clarity and radiance.
The Primer's unique change gel formula allows it to fit seamlessly on uneven skin surfaces for a flawless and translucent complexion, while The Cream Foundation applies naturally with a shift change effect formula and elastic gloss film, blending onto skin in two phases and sealing the foundation for a long-lasting glow.
“I really love The Cream Foundation because it’s so creamy and luxurious. It glides onto my skin for a really natural coverage, and it leaves my skin looking radiant for the rest of the day.”
