Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream - does perfect cream really exist?


 Read in English       Przeczytaj po polsku

Is there any product that fits all the skin types? Year ago I would probably say no because it's impossible! But there's one brand that specifies in products suitable for all skin types - Klairs. Klairs Rich Moist Cream wasn't my first choice but I've decided to give it a chance and today I'm going to tell you more about this product.

Couple words about brand
Klairs is a Korean brand that specifies in cruelty-free products. Their main motto is "simple but enough" - it means that Klairs won't offer us couple skincare series - all products are fitting every skin type. All the products are suitable for vegetarians and the brand is working to make all products suitable for vegans.


Packaging
The design of the packaging is very minimalistic, that's why I love this brand so much. The new version of this cream - the one that you can see on photos - comes in a tube instead of a glass jar. I've got mixed feelings about this solution - the tube is very convenient if you plan to take this cream with you on trips or even if you want to throw it to your bag and use it during the day but if you don't plan to cut the packaging to use the rest of this product then you're wasting quite a big amount of the product. 

Skin Type
This product is suitable for all the skin types. 


Ingredients
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glyceryl Stearate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Stearic Acid, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Beta-Glucan, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Microcrystalline Wax, Betaine, Peg-100 Stearate, Ceramide 3, Polyquaternium-51, Sorbitan Stearate, Dimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carbomer, Arginine, Illicium Verum(Anise) Fruit Extract, Citrus Paradisi(Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Chlorphenesin, Disodium Adenosine Triphosphate, Algin, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Citric Acid, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Natto Gum, Centella Asiatica Extract, Althaea Rosea Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Disodium Edta, Apium Graveolens (Celery) Extract, Brassica Oleracea Capitata (Cabbage) Leaf Extract, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Extract, Brassica Rapa (Turnip) Leaf Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit/Leaf/Stem Extract, Lysine Hcl, Proline, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Acetyl Methionine, Theanine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil 

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride - oily emollient, it makes skin soft and moist but this ingredient is made from coconut oil and glycerin - both of them might be comedogenic. Glycerin - good moisturiser, it helps other substances to get through the surface of the skin to the deeper layers of our skin. Some people say that they have comedogenic reactions to this ingredient. Cetyl Alcohol - another oily emollient, it protects skin from dehydration. Cyclopentasiloxane - an emollient and light silicone but you shouldn't be scared of it - according to EWG, this ingredient isn't harmful. Glyceryl Stearate - an emollient with smoothing properties, it might be comedogenic. Sodium Hyaluronate - humectant, good moisturiser and anti-wrinkle ingredient. You might not know that but sodium hyaluronate is also used to speed up the healing process and to remove pigmentation. It's a real multi-tool! Cetyl Ethylhexanoate - a greasy emollient, it helps with product application and it moisturises skin but it has a dark side - it might be comedogenic. Stearic Acid - an emollient, it might be comedogenic. Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) - greasy emollient, strong moisturiser (it can help with inflammation). A source of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A and Vitamin E. Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil - an emollient, the structure of Jojoba Seed Oil is very similar to sebum that's why this oil is recommended for every skin type. It's a very nourishing and regenerating ingredient. Beta-Glucan - an antioxidant, it increases collagen production and speeds up healing process that's why this ingredient is used in anti-aging products as well as products for acne-prone skin. Sorbitan Sesquioleate - an emulsifier. Microcrystalline Wax - an emollient, it keeps skin from dehydration. It might be comedogenic. Betaine - powerful but gentle moisturiser. Peg-100 Stearate - an emulsifier which is not good for the skin. Ceramide 3 - lipid that naturally occurs in the skin, a good moisturiser that improves skin barrier. Polyquaternium-51 - humectant and a good moisturiser. Sorbitan Stearate - an emulsifier, it might be comedogenic. Dimethicone - an emollient but also a silicone, it changes the texture of a product, it might be comedogenic that's why we need to remember about cleansing. Tocopheryl Acetate - Vitamin E, it's a good preservative but it also works for skin, because it's an antioxidant - you can get positive effects with this ingredient if you want to care more about wrinkles, skin protection and moisture. Carbomer -  a thickener, it might be comedogenic. Arginine - boosts collagen production. Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract - this fruit extract doesn't only give a smell to the product, it has also antibacterial properties. This ingredient should be avoided during the pregnancy. Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract - is a source of vitamin C and another antioxidant. Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract - also known as Lotus Flower Extract, this ingredient will make your skin brighter. Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract - it’s nothing else than peony root extract which is a good antioxidant which works for quicker skin healing and improves blood circulation. Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract - is one of the herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine, another antioxidant, it might help with wrinkles and inflammations. Chlorphenesin - a preservative. Disodium Adenosine Triphosphate - it helps with collagen production and skin moisture. Algin - amazing humectant, it can be comedogenic. Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract - a source of vitamin A and C, it makes your skin brighter. This ingredient will be great for acne-prone skin because both vitamins are used to treat acne and post-acne pigmentation. Citric Acid - this acid belongs to the group of AHA acids. It's a mild exfoliator. Portulaca Oleracea Extract - an antioxidant which reminds me a little bit of Aloe because it contains almost 93% of water. Besides water, it's a plant full of vitamins and minerals. It's good for inflammation and lack of moisture. Natto Gum - products made from soy fermentation. Even if you've got a soy allergy this ferment form of soy can heal your skin. Natto Gum is told to be another antioxidant, it helps with wrinkles but it also increases skin moisture and it has skin soothing properties. Centella Asiatica Extract - also known as Gotu Kola, it works for many different skin problems such as wrinkles, acne, pigmentation and even with dark circles under the eyes. Althaea Rosea Flower Extract - full in vitamins, it’ll make your skin soft but it is also told that this flower extract has anti-inflammation properties. Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract - Aloe is good for different skin problems such as acne or dehydration, aloe contains almost 99% of the water that's why it's a good moisturiser. Disodium EDTA -  a preservative, it's safe in small concentration. Apium Graveolens (Celery) Extract - this ingredient is usually used for the smell. Brassica Oleracea Capitata (Cabbage) Leaf Extract - an antioxidant and source of vitamin C. Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Extract - is a source of vitamin C and vitamin A, so this ingredient can make your skin brighter. Brassica Rapa (Turnip) Leaf Extract - a source of vitamin C, it can balance sebum production. Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract - an antioxidant that makes the skin soft in touch but it also works on wrinkle and it helps with skin moisture. Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract - a mild exfoliator, it helps with blood circulation. Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit/Leaf/Stem Extract - an astringent, it helps with the healing process. Lysine Hcl & Proline -  increase skin elasticity and they can be used as anti-ageing ingredients. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate - a stable form of vitamin C and as you know vitamin C makes your skin bright. Acetyl Methionine - an antioxidant.  Theanine - skin moisture. Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil - this oil has antiseptic properties but it's also a source of the nice scent. Some people might get an allergic reaction to this ingredient. Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil - it helps with skin irritation. Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil - antiseptic ingredient. Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil - an antioxidant, it can stop the ageing process and it gives a nice smell to the product. Some people might get an allergic reaction to this ingredient. Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil - this oil has anti-ageing properties. Cananga Odorata Flower Oil - also known as Ylang Ylang Oil, it calms your nerves but it also has a good meaning to the skin - it balances sebum production and it's an anti-irritation ingredient. 


Smell & Texture
The smell is a little bit like lemon or grapefruit - very fresh, fruity scent which I think everyone can tolerate. The smell disappears quickly so you won't smell it. The texture is quite thick but I can spread this cream all over my face pretty easily, it's not a heavy cream - it might feel like it's an oily product but you can't feel the weight of this cream on the skin. 

How does it work for me?
For ages, I had a problem with finding an ideal moisturiser - usually, all the products are too heavy for acne-prone skin. I've decided to buy the first packaging in late 2016 - I think it was November and from this time it's my all-time favourite product. The formula is good for oily skin, I do not see any comedogenic or allergic reaction to this product. The smell is really nice so I can't complain. The packaging is a little bit useless - I had to cut the packaging into two halves to get as much of this product as I can - definitely Blue Midnight Cream has better packaging. My skin has better moisture and protection, after using it for a long time I can admit it's a good moisturiser and it's lighter formula than Blue Midnight Cream. I'm using this cream as a base for sunscreen or foundation - if I've got a foundation/cushion/BB Cream with SPF50 - and it works with all these products. The price of this product might be high but I'm using it twice a day and it lasts 5-6 months. 


Additional Information
According to the producer's website, this product is suitable for vegans. This product can be used by people with sensitive skin. 

Where to get it?
You can get this Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream on Wishtrend (24.50$/60ml).

Sum up
I've just shown you my favourite moisturiser which I highly recommended. It's a very delicate product with lots of good ingredients. I'm 100% sure that I'll purchase another one after I use the current package but honestly, I want to try Neogen Black Volume Cream between current packaging and the next one to see if I'll feel any difference. 

I hope you've enjoyed this review. Let me know what do you think about this cream, have you ever tried it? Do you know Klairs? What's your favourite Klairs product?


GIVEAWAY RESULTS
It was really hard to choose because all the answers were great and full of knowledge but I had to choose Allantoin which is La Bleuet's favourite ingredient - I feel like she's my soulmate - I also should stop eating the things that are potential allergens instead of using allantoin on every inflammation :) I'm sure there'll be another giveaway but I won't tell you anything about it yet. Please, La Bleuet contact me - the mail is in "about" section.

  1. Po mojej ostatniej nieudanej przygodzie z marką Klairs, mam jej na chwilę obecną dość i chyba zrobię sobie krótką przerwę od ich produktów :P

    Fajnie, że krem się u Ciebie sprawdził - skład jest całkiem niezły, ale z drugiej strony mogli darować sobie kilka substancji takich jak silikon prawie na samym początku, czy PEG ;) Ale skoro nie zapycha i jednocześnie dobrze nawilża to na pewno będę miała go na oku :D

  4. Na naszym rynku żadne kosmetyki nie mogą być testowane na zwierzętach, więc właściwie jest to oczywista informacja :)
    Krem zapowiada się kusząco :)

  7. Klairs is a brand I've wanted to try but I really need to work down my stash. I had my eye on their Blue Midnight Cream but this one sounds like it would be ideal for the warmer months. I actually don't mind the tube packaging because I find jars a little unhygienic. Thanks for the review :)

  8. I love the fact that the brand is cruelty-free, that's a big plus for me! I am now super curious about this cream :)

  9. Łohooł :D Dziękuję Ci kochana!! :D <3 Choć nie miałam pojęcia, że Twoje uwielbienie dla alantoiny wywodzi się z dokładnie tych samych przyczyn.. hahaha :D Mailowo skontaktuję się już jutro bo nie mam mózgu już dziś, wpadłam tylko napisać jak bardzo się ucieszyłam :D <3

    A co do Klairs to nawet już nie mówię jak mnie nakręcasz na tą markę.. :D Przez Ciebie byłabym w stanie wziać wszystko w ciemnno bo już jakiś czas temu zdążyłam uwierzyć, że mają swoje koncepty dopracowane w najlepszym stopniu.. Muszę urządzić jakieś polowanie na Klairs..

  11. Słyszałam o tym kremie wiele dobrego, czas się przekonać o jego działaniu na własnej skórze ;) Trochę obawiam się tych silikonów i PEGów, ale może nie będzie tak źle :p
    Ostatnio Klairs wypuścił Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop, jestem ciekawa, co sądzisz na jego temat :D Widziałam go na razie tylko na Wishtrend: wishtrend.com/skin-care/1689-midnight-blue-youth-activating-drop-klairs.html

  12. Oj wolę zdecydowanie kremy w słoiczkach albo w tubkach w pompką. Mam dzięki temu większą kontrolę nad ilością. :)

  13. Uwielbiam tę markę, olejek do demakijażu i serum witaminowe wymiataja :)

  17. Szczerze powiedziawszy koreańskich kosmetyków jeszcze nie próbowałam, mimo tego, że tak wiele dobrego się o nich mówi. Cena tego kremu troszkę nie na moją kieszeń aktualnie ;(

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wiele słyszałam o tej firmie ale jeszcze nic od niej nie próbowałam, Kremik wygląda bardzo zachęcająco :-)

  19. Ja też mam tłustą cerę i rzeczywiście znalezienie odpowiedniego nawilżającego kosmetyku to niezłe wyzwanie. Teraz przynajmniej będę miała ten produkt na uwadze :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Super, że znalazłaś krem idealny, w moim przypadku poszukiwania nadal trwają ;/ Patrząc na skład boję się, że mógłby mnie zapchać, a ja ostatnio, po zmianie miejsca pobytu, i tak mam masakrę na twarzy :C Nawet lekkie, wodniste kremy zaczęły mnie zapychać, chyba muszę przeczekać ten okres :)

    Gratuluję zwyciężczyni, alantoina to rzeczywiście składnik -cudo :D

  21. That's great that this product worked for you! Even though it's expensive, it sounds totally worth it!

  33. Ten krem wydaje się całkiem fajny, chętnie bym wypróbowała. Jak zaczęłam czytać opis składu, to myślałam, że musi być bardzo ciężki, ale widać warto wypróbować na sobie. Pozdrawiam :)

  45. Na szczęście nie mam problemów z suchą skórą, ale za to przetłuszczanie i błyszczenie non stop daje mi w kość :/
