Review: Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence

22. October 2018


The search for good sunscreens that can be used on a daily basis and are also suited for the face and any follow-up makeup is always a big topic within the skincare community. Klairs, one of my favorite KBeauty brands had launched a sunscreen in the past, that was surprisingly disappointing, but now they released a new sunscreen, the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence. You can imagine my curiosity for this product, and so I was more than happy to find this among my packages some weeks ago. Here is my opinion on this new product by Klairs:

Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence

Klairs is a Korean brand which is eco-friendly, producing products which are animal-testing-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free, artificial-color-free and recently they are vegan, too. Their products address people with sensitive skin and people who want to moisturize their skin. I reviewed some of their products before, like the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum (repurchased that one 4 times already!) or the Klairs Midnight Blue Cream, which both convinced me in their effects. Their saying “Simple but Enough” really nails it and I think that many people will agree on that point with me.

The Klairs Soft Airy UC Essence comes with SPF50+ PA ++++ and is a lightweight daily sunscreen that protects the skin from UVA and UVB. Thereby, it claims to leave no greasiness, nor a white cast. The broad spectrum sunscreen has a water-based gel-texture and comes in a (quite unusual) large tube containing 80ml. The design of the tube is simple, as expected for the brand. The tube is packed inside a cardboard box with the typical holographic design that you know from the Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask or the Vitamin C Drop.

As a general rule for sunscreens, you should apply the product ahead of sun exposure and reapply every now and then. There, every 3 hours is suggested for the Klairs Soft airy UV Essence.

The ingredients of the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence are stated on the cardboard box, but you will also find the information on Wishtrend.

Water (Aqua), Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Butylene Glycol, Dibutyl Adipate, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Ethylhexyl Triazone, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Silica, Cetearyl Olivate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Olivate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Sorbitan Stearate, Panthenol, Beta-Glucan, Disodium EDTA, Citrus Junos Fruit Extract, Adenosine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopherol, Allantoin, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil

According to SkinCarisma, the product is free from parabens, sulfates, silicons, and alcohol. It is EU allergen free, too! The UV protection is realized by using Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate and Ethylhexyl Triazone. Moreover, there is Niacinamide for brightening and anti-aging included. Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and Adenosine have anti.aging properties, too. Panthenol and Hyaluronic Acid provide moisture and have soothing properties. The list of ingredients is neither very short, but not huge either.

For me personally, I love the larger size of the sunscreen. Usually, Korean sunscreens come with 50ml of volume. If you want to try out various sunscreens this is the perfect volume. But if you have found your current favorite you’ll have to repurchase very often. Also, the larger volume makes it suited to be used on the whole body, without emptying the tubes too quickly.

As you see below, the sunscreen has a milky-essence type texture and a slightly yellowish color. Upon application it is very watery and feels moisturizing and refreshing, on the other hand, it soaks in pretty quickly. Unlike other sunscreens, you need less time to pat it into the skin and there is definitely NO WHITE CAST! It feels so lightweight and no film or residue is left on the skin.

For me, the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence has no specific scent, by the way. It has a cooling sensation when applied that lasts for a moment. I didn’t observe any tackiness or stickiness, and it was not irritating during the time I used the product.

I have a couple of sunscreens in my routine at the moment but there are only two that I really really love to use every day. The Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence is one of them, and I can only recommend it if you haven’t found your holy grail daily sun protection. You can buy the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence from Wishtrend for 23 US$. Also, check out my page for Coupons and Discount, to save some bucks on your order. I have reviewed so many other products from the brand Klairs and I can say that this is one of my favorite Kbeauty brands with a great variety of products. Check out all my Klairs reviews >>here<<.

    I need this so much! I’ve been so curious ever since it came out. Right now I’m using one by cosrx that I love, but this one I know I need to try. :D Great review!

      Thank you so much for your nice words ❤️ if you get the chance to try it let me know what you think :)

    I really enjoy this sunscreen, my only problem is that I don’t understand the added essential oil, especially in a product marketed for sensitive skin.

    • Frl. Schnee 9. November 2018 at 8:44

      That’s really something that is noteworthy. I never think about these points myself because my skin isn’t any sensitive but I guess it is mainly for the scent. It would be nice if they make a scentless version like for the toner.

    I’ve actually been really liking Klairs – I use their midnight blue cream and reallllyy wanna try their midnight blue oil thing (I tried the vitamin C serum, but… idk it went orange so I guess I need to buy another one?). I really wanna try this one too!

    • Frl. Schnee 9. November 2018 at 8:45

      I wouldn’t use the serum any longer. Mine is not orange and usually a change in colors means that the vitamin c started to oxidize. If you get your hands on this one here let me know.

    Hey meine Liebe die Sonnencreme klingt wirklich toll :) ich suche für den Sommer auch noch eine gute Sonnencreme als Primer. Bisher waren leider auch alle eher zu schwer bzw. zu dick aber diese von Klairs klingt wirklich toll – die muss ich unbedingt testen. xxx

    Die Marke kannte ich noch nicht, klingt auch sehr gut! Sonnenschutz ist einfach so wichtig.

I reviewed and used so many of their products already and still love using the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence has been released not long ago and I can definitely say that I’m addicted to it.

    I don’t think that Klairs is vegan yet because the midnight blue calming cream had beeswax the last time I purchased it a couple of months ago, but they’re striving to become vegan! :) I know that this post is like a year old, but just wanted to let everyone know so someone doesn’t by a non-vegan product by mistake! Always check the ingredients if you want to be sure! :)
