Dear Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream Review on Acne-Prone Skin

Dear Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream Review

I recently bought the dear, Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream because I've heard so many amazing things about it. I thought it was time to get a new base since my skin hasn't been good to me for the past month. It's been really dehydrated and I'm getting cystic acne in places where I've never had them before. It's a little crazy, so I thought I should look into bases which had moisturizing properties in them.

The Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream is a Blemish Cream, highly known as BB cream that captures the natural skin tone. It applies thinly and it does not cake or leave a grey cast. With its hydrating features, it gives the skin a glowy and natural finish. 

Natural, translucent finish 
The Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream revolutionized the grayscale shade of many Korean BB creams. It doesn’t thickly cover the skin for the natural, lively skin tone look. Depending on skin type and personal preference, can be mixed with matte foundation. 

Complete hydration even for dry, sensitive skin 
Can act as a hydration cream. Effective hydration to dry and sensitive skin, adding healthy shine to make the skin look lively and youthful. With a mild, hypoallergenic formula it is safe to use on all skin types. 

Multiple applications without the clumping
The Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream is made with Klairs special formula for effective coverage of pores and redness. Multiple applications for additional coverage is possible without the clumping or heaviness for a natural finish.

I had high expectations for this product based on customer reviews and comments I read on numerous websites. I specifically read comments from people who identified as acne-prone and had oily and blemished skin because I thought that I could relate to them. But I was so wrong. I don't know if the definition of acne-prone and blemished skin changed overnight, but honey, no. Their comments were all false.

This is primarily the reason why I blog and post coverage tests. Sometimes people exaggerate on products telling how amazing they are, blah, blah, and hey, I bought it because of their testimonies, right? Such a let down!

It has a yellow-undertone, almost invisible once applied.

This blemish balm comes in a soft plastic squeeze-type packaging and I am loving the English labels. From the box all the way to the tube, you can read descriptions, ingredients and more which I find oddly satisfying. I mean this is probably the most English I've read in a ton of K-beauty products that I own. I love that I can read and understand the product I'm using instead of just looking at symbols.

As for the formula, I find it very similar to other blemish balms, has a light scent, not too thick and not to thin -- just somewhere in between, and it's very easy to spread on to skin. It doesn't have a strong grey undertone and it does try to adapt to my skin tone, but it just still looks lighter on me. I'm really more on the medium-yellow side, so it is still noticeable that I've applied something on.

I've read a lot of reviews saying how good it is in covering their acne, but I would have to say that's totally false. I find that while it has a very light coverage, a semi-matte finish, and that it also minimizes the look of pores on skin, it however does not cover acne-marks, pimples, and it doesn't really cover redness. I would have to say that it neutralizes redness, but not totally covers it.

The product doesn't promise to be a foundation nor a full-coverage BB cream, but it does promise to give you a my-skin-but-better look. Sure, I'd agree to that. I find that the Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream really does make your skin look glowing, "illuminating" if you will, and it still makes your skin look like skin. It has a very natural glowy finish. It feels very hydrating and oil control is okay, I don't need to powder and re-touch, but I do need to blot, and another issue for me is I get a new pimple every time I use this on my cheek. I believe it also contains Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera Extract which are all great on skin, but Niacinamide I think is the true culprit here on why I get a new zit every time I use this. I've had the same experience with the Niacinamide serum from The Ordinary.

I would describe the dear, Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream not as a typical CC-cream and not a typical BB-cream, but more of a glowy-tinted-moisturizer-sunscreen. I like using it on my nose because it hides my pores and I also like using it under my eyes because of the hydration. I believe some people tend to use this as a base before putting on foundation or they just simply mix it with foundation for a more glowy look. I have yet to try it, but I definitely will mix this with a darker foundation and see how it goes.

If you want to achieve the glass look, this is the product you have to use!

If you're looking for a BB-cream to cover your blemishes and acne-marks, this is not it.

I think it works better on blemish-free skin, those with dry skin, and those who just want a my-skin-but-better-glowy-look without having to cover anything else. I bought this from Althea Korea and it retails for PHP 1,300.

Sad to say, but I've been let down by customer reviews yet again.
