I was recently approached by Wishtrend.com to do a review on it’s feature product of the month, Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream. To be very honest, I had never heard of Klairs until now, and was a little apprehensive. But what’s a good beauty blogger who doesn’t dare to venture beyond the ordinary right? Moreover, I love a good BB cream, and this sounded really good!
Klairs is a Korean beauty brand whose products are formulated according to dermatologists’ recommended formula. What I really liked is that all of Klairs’ products are formulated without ethanol, parabens, artificial colors (for skincare, not so much makeup i think!), and they do not perform animal testing!
Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream, SPF40 / PA++
Every BB cream claims to do a million things, when in essence what I really am looking for is an easy to use, everyday, natural make-up base. Throw in a good sunscreen factor, and i’m a happy girl. I’d much rather invest in good skincare for all the additional pampering.
And I think that is where Klair’s BB cream excels. Right off the tube, it is a nice, neutral shade that is suitable for most Asian skin tones. It is not grey as so many other BB creams are prone to, nor is it too light / dark for the average Asian. What is most impressive, is that it blends marvelously, allowing your natural skin to still show through whilst effectively toning down any redness and covering blemishes (for larger zits a proper concealor may still be required).
I really liked the smooth creamy texture of this BB cream, not too oily nor sticky, making application a breeze… especially handy for busy mornings! After application, it leaves my face just nicely matte, no oily sheen like some other BB creams. I found the coverage (for a BB cream) to be one of the better ones I’ve encountered, comparable to some sheer-medium coverage foundations. I actually loved it so much, I couldn’t stop using it once I started, and went on for a whole week until I got something new to review!
With the built-in SPF 40 / PA++ protection, I actually felt safe enough to skip my everyday sunscreen, further reducing time-out-of-the-door. Every second counts when you have a young baby to be dropped off enroute to work!
