Review: Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream with SPF 40 PA++

♫ Henry 헨리- TRAP (feat. Kyuhyun & Taemin)

Klair's Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream
Have you heard of Klair's? I had not, until I joined the WISHTrend community and got to know more about various Korean brands. Among the recent hype of BB and CC creams, I was glad to see a company introduce a cream that didn't claim to be any of those things (sounds so hipster, lol) and mainly focused on what was important - taking care of our skin. WISHTrend was kind enough to send me a tube of Klair's Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream (with SPF 40 PA++) to review, so read on to find out more! :D

Klair's products are specifically designed and formulated according to dermatologists' recommendations, and are hypoallergenic and eco-friendly. They also practice a No Animal Testing, No Paraben and Alcohol-Free policy to produce eco-friendly products.

Note the prints inside the box. Useful to identify genuine products. :)
The product packaging
The packaging of the blemish cream is very clean and simple. The actual tube of the Klair's Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream is exactly the same as the picture on the cardboard box, except in inverted colours. I find this really cute and amusing. |・ω・`)

Squeeze tube design
The blemish cream has a screw cap and squeeze tube design (reminds me of toothpaste ^^;;), which is great because you can totally control how much you want to use. Not so great is the screw cap, because it can be easily misplaced or get kinda dirty while you're putting on your war paint makeup.

Swatch (back of hand)
Upon swatching, the cream looks a shade lighter than my natural skin tone, but once blended out and left to settle for a couple of minutes, it matches my skin tone quite well. It has a slightly thicker texture than most BB creams I've used, but is still fairly easy to blend out using fingers. Check out the before and after comparison photo below:
Before & After
The 'before' photo is my prepped and primed skin, while the 'after' photo is with a layer of the Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream. As you can see, it works to reduce redness and has whitening effect.
Some of the properties of Klair's Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream:
  • Sun protection (SPF 40 PA++)
  • Whitening
  • Wrinkle improvement
  • Sebum control
  • No grey undertone
I'd say it has sheer-to-medium coverage, and is more suitable for fair to medium skin, even though the product claims to fit dark to light skin tones. As per usual, I love facial products that have SPF, and this cream has additional whitening function. The sebum control claim is pretty spot on, as my skin does not feel oily even after 6 hours, yet does not feel dry either.

Klair's Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream (40ml) retails for US$22.99 on WISHTrend, but you can grab it now at their Beauty Steal price of US$18.50!
