Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask Review

Do you like all-in-one products? Then Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask is a product for you! I'm not a huge fan of the all-in-one idea, but Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask was on my wishlist for a long time. The concept of a mask, scrub and cleanser in one product seems to be ideal for travelling and not only that. Why you should give Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask a try? Let's find out!   

I'll be honest with you, I'm not a huge fan of all-in-one products because usually they are super boring, and they do one thing, but Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask was an interesting product since day one! The idea of combining cleanser, peeling and mask in one? Sounds good to me, especially when I'm tired. I'm not joking, I usually take my bath around 2-3 am, and then I go to sleep after 4 am. I educate people to take a good amount of sleep, eat healthily and take care of their skin, but after all, I'm a great example of a forever stressed person who forgot how to function.

About Klairs 

Klairs is a K-beauty brand, and one of the first South Korean brands I've ever tried. The motto of the company is 'simple but enough'. Klairs is a part of Wishcompany, and its origins take us back to 2012 when Klairs officially became a part of Wishcompany. The name's meaning is a bit different from other brands. According to Klairs, the name Dear, Klairs comes from the fictional character Klair, a girl with sensitive skin, the name is like a letter to her. Even if the full name of a brand is Dear, Klairs we stick to using Klairs and honestly, I barely ever see anyone using the full name of a company. Klairs notice how changing, and challenging the cosmetic market can be that's why they decided to focus on quality over quantity. 'Simple but enough' means that the brand won't create many products, instead they focus on simple solutions. The brand doesn't only listen to customers, and their ideas, but Klairs' focus on the environment is a part of the brand's mission. All skin types can use Klairs products. The brand is cruelty-free and vegetarian-friendly, and the majority of products are vegan-friendly. You won't find here parabens, artificial colourants and scents. I don't think parabens are evil, but some people prefer to avoid them.

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask - Packaging  

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask comes in a paper box. Inside you can find a white jar with orange text and a spatula. This design is typical only for this product, and it seems like it's a separate product created by Klairs. When this sugar mask was released first, it was a Soko Glam exclusive. The jar contains 110g of the product.

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask - Texture & Scent  

The texture is like a waxy mask with tiny sugar particles. The sugar particles are super gentle - not like your regular sugar, but even smaller and not that harsh. It spreads easily and once you add water it emulsifies. The scent is delicate but fruity. You can smell Grapefruit Peel Oil in it.

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask - Ingredients  

Sucrose, Glycerin, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cetyl Alcohol, Glucose, Citrus Paradisi(Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Microcrystalline Wax, Glyceryl Stearate, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Sorbitan Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Kaolin, Cellulose, Calamine, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, (-)-alpha-bisabolol   

Sucrose is nothing else than sugar, and what do sugars do in cosmetics? They moisturize! Glycerin or Glycerol is a humectant. Its origin can be natural or synthetic - depending on the product. It protects TEWL (transepidermal water loss) and naturally occurs in the skin. It's one of the NMFs - natural moisturizing factors. It's practical in hair care. Glycerin won't clog your skin or irritate it just the opposite - it protects your skin from irritation. Cetyl Ethylhexanoate is an emollient that leaves a velvet layer on the surface of the skin. It appears in cleansing products, and it makes brushing and detangling your hair easier. Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride is a combination of coconut oil and glycerin. It's a notable emollient, quite common in skincare. It leaves a protective film on the surface of the epidermis to save your cutis from dehydration. Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride has a significant role in skin care products - it makes the application process effortless. Some people might experience pore-clogging after using Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride, but pore-clogging and skin reactions to ingredients are individual. What works for you might not work for someone else. Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter is a butter obtained from seeds of the Vitellaria paradoxa tree - a tree typical for Africa. It's an emollient rich in antioxidants like vitamin E or vitamin A. It's a source of oleic acid, stearic acid and linoleic acid. Shea butter is a well-moisturizing emollient that leaves a fine film on the skin and hair to protect from dehydration. It has soothing properties, and it might provide sun protection around SPF 2-4 (still, use proper sun-protecting agents instead of oils and butter for your safety). This ingredient is an excellent choice for dry skin and psoriasis. Shea butter hydrates hair and helps them look shinier. It's good to choose certified shea butter from a trusted source. Cetyl Alcohol might sound scary, but it's a positive for the skin fatty alcohol. It helps with moisture, and it's a marvellous emollient. It leaves a film on the skin to prevent TEWL (transepidermal water loss). Glucose is a monosaccharide - a simple sugar, and we all know that sugars in skincare are nothing else than humectants.

Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract is a potent antioxidant. It tones the skin and delicately smoothes it out. Acne-prone skin and grey skin should enjoy this one. Microcrystalline Wax is an oily synthetic emollient. Glyceryl Stearate is an emollient with emulsifying properties. Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil is an emollient, and a source of omega acids. Sorbitan Stearate is an oil-in-water emulsifier. PEG-100 Stearate is an oil-in-water-in emulsifier. Sorbitan Sesquioleate is a water-in-oil emulsifier. Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil is an emollient and a source of vitamin E. The structure of jojoba oil is very similar to human sebum, that's why all skin types shouldn't be scared of this oil. It creates a delicate, non-oily film barrier on the surface of the skin. It helps to restore your hydrolipid barrier. Jojoba oil can be applied straight onto the skin. In hair care, jojoba oil makes hair stronger and hydrated. PS. Jojoba oil isn't an oil, but a waxy ester. Tocopheryl Acetate is a form of Vitamin E, Tocopherol. It's an antioxidant that helps with skin & hair hydration and prevents TEWL (transepidermal water loss). This ester form of Tocopherol is more stable, but it's not as effective. Some people consider it a preservative, but Vitamin E should be used as a preservative. It's good to mix it with Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid. Kaolin or china clay is a white type of clay. It's ideal for all skin types, especially sensitive and mature. If you deal with rosacea then kaolin is clay for you. Kaolin works as an absorbent since it absorbs the sebum. Cellulose is a natural polymer that works as a thickener and sebum absorbent. Calamine is a mineral powder with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It has a calming effect on the skin, and it works on acne. It absorbs the sebum and can be used after sun exposure. Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil is an essential oil. It gives a citrus scent to the product, but it also balances sebum production and prevents cellulite. This ingredient can react to light. (-)-alpha-bisabolol is a soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredient related to chamomile.

How does Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask work?  

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask is a product which I wanted to try for ages. It's been a while since I used a physical exfoliant on my face. I usually use sugar or salt scrubs on my body, but my face is sensitive, so I stick to PHA or LHA exfoliators. According to Wishtrend, Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask is a low-irritating product, and I can fully agree with that. The tiny parts of sucrose are gentle, it's not your regular sugar. You don't have to be scared of this mask. The texture is quite thick, and I love to massage my skin with it. It's more like a paste than a mask, but still, I enjoy using it as a mask. The spatula that comes with the mask is easy to use. I'm not using small amounts of this mask, but I usually go for bigger amounts to cover my face. I delicately massage my face with it, and then I leave it. Usually, after 10-15 minutes I add water to the mask and remove it while exfoliating the skin. You can use it straight after oil cleanser since it's a 3-in-1 product - mask, scrub and cleanser. Wishtrend ever recommends mixing 2-3 pumps of Klairs Cleansing Oil (the review is on the blog) with this mask. I haven't tried this trick, but maybe one day I'll give it a try.    

Did Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask meet my expectations? Yes, it's a mild product that works with my skin type. It doesn't leave my face sticky and it doesn't irritate my skin or make my acne go wild. I feel like it helps me to relax and main my skin.
