A couple of posts back I mentioned that I had recently purchase the Klairs Illuminating BB Cream. Since then I have been testing out this product.
It’s a Korean product and is cruelty free, both things that tick postive boxes for me. It also has an SPF of 40 which is great for summer days.
The cream is quite gel like in texture and dewy in finish. It is super smooth and very easy to blend.
I have now been wearing this BB Cream now for around about a week and I think I can say that this is my holy grail base product. It is glowy and has perfect light coverage that could be built to a medium. What I love about this is that it is virtually undetectable on skin. It doesn’t sink into or highlight pores and it is pretty long lasting. It lasts me through an 8 hour shift at work with a light powdering.
I just love the way it makes my skin look. This is just a single application of about a peasized amount with no primer or anything. You can see why it’s a Korean celeb favorite!
A downside of this product that I can come up with is the fact that it only comes in one shade and that shade is pale and yellow in tone. This works fine for me but it obviously wouldn’t work for everyone. I’d probably say any darker than an nc15 and you would struggle for it to look natural.
It does also state that you should avoid using it directly on acne or sunburnt skin though looking at the ingredients I can’t really see why. As I cannot see many well known comedogenic ingredients. I’m putting a picture of the ingredients as If they’re are any skincare junkies who can tell me what ingredient could be the reason why not to wear this on breakouts. I’ve worn it over the odd pimple and not seen anything negative happening?
It’s so lovely I hope there isn’t and that it just contains some comedogenic ingredients.
Please comment if you have the knowledge!
