I’m back with a BB cream review ^_^ Yeeiii! This time it is about Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream, which was kindly send to me for reviewing purpose by Wishtrend. This BB cream is a all-in-one product, combining sunscreen, primer, foundation, and finishing powder…Sounds amazing! Moreover, the Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream allows to create a very natural look, and yet gives a good coverage. Let’s see what my thought are on this product:
The Korean brand Klairs is an eco-friendly cosmetic brand. Their products are not tested on animals, don’t contain parabens, alcohol or artificial coloring. All their products have a simple, but vintage kind of design which I personally love. The Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream comes therefore in a sleek tube. The colors are restricted to black and cream-colored. I especially love the words written below the product’s name saying “You look so wonderful just the way you are”. Who doesn’t want to start the day reading these words in front of the mirror while still halfway asleep?!:D
It has SPF 40 PA++ by using ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, isoamyl p-methoxycinnamate, titanium dioxide, Bis-ethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine and zinc oxide within the ingredients, which makes it great for daily use. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe extracts for providing moisture. According to COSDNA the ingredients are not harmful (click >>here<<). One preservative (Methylisothiazolinone) is mentioned to potentially cause allergic reactions, which wasn’t the case while I used the product. The ingredients list and descripton are written on the cardboardbox in Korean and English as well.
The 40 ml soft plastic tube has a plastic cap which is easily to unlock and lock again. The application is not complicated in any ways. Although, sometimes I prefer a pump instead of a normal tube. Nevertheless, the cream is neither to fluid, nor to solid, which makes it easy to get out the perfect amount of BB cream needed for your face. I’ve been using this BB cream for a long time now and I’m pleased to say, that I didn’t react to it in any negative way.
The description says that this BB cream is suitable for all skin types, so I did the simple “BBcream on blotting paper” test in order to see how oily the product is. I don’t think that this test is representative on how good it will work on your skin, but it could give you an idea, if you do the same test of your favourite BB cream and compare the oily circle around the BB cream droplet. As you can see, it definitively shows up some oiliness around, but I’ve seen worse BB creams after 4 hours. This one is still “okay” in my eyes, so it might also be suited for oily skintypes. According to the description the Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream contains sebum controll powder, which will help to keep the facial oil production at bay.
How does the BB cream perform on skin finally? As I said, I’ve tried this BB cream for a while now and I love the finish. Below you can see the cream on my hand. On the bottom right side of the image you see how it looks blended in. I would say that it blends in perfectly! Yet, it does give the skin some kind of illumination. The color looks very natural and the BB cream doesn’t look like being a heavy or thick layer.
It looks super natural on my skin and blends in perfectly with my natural skin color. It doesn’t have high coverage, but it gives your skin an airbrushed look. It reduces the appearance of redness (take a closer look at the skin around my nose and cheek. The differences might be small/not visible when you just take a quick look from afar, but I can ensure you that my skin looks perfect to go outside while only using this. It also has a semipowdery finish, doesn’t feel sticky and leaves the skin soft and smooth. It doesn’t make my (dry) skin look greasy at all, although it has a subtle glow…also, it did not flake around my nose the whole day, which I experience very rarely.
So far the Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream is my BB cream to go! It contains sunprotection, perfect for daily wear, gives you a natural look with an airbrushed effect and simply looks very nice on the skin. I can recommend you to try this product! I think it will convince you. If you are looking for coverage as main point, I wouldn’t go for this BB cream, though! Nevertheless, when paired up with the new Klairs Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer it might be also a nice daily BB cream for people with more troubled skin, looking for a light finish.
