When I shot my interview video with WISHtrend (btw, if you haven’t seen it, you can here), they kindly gifted me with a little gift box full of goodies from a Korean skin care brand they carry called Klairs. I was immediately attracted to the packaging of the products as they reminded me of something from Nature Republic or Innisfree (my 2 favorite brands). I wasn’t too far off, since Klairs products are eco friendly, are alcohol and paraben free, and they don’t test on animals. Johnny has basically taken over what’s left of my Benton Steam Cream, and I needed to replace it with another hydrating cream for my nighttime routine, and that’s where the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream comes in.
The Klairs Rich Moist Soothing cream is designed for those with normal to dry skin, and provides tons of hydration for smooth, soft, and supple skin. It’s packaged in a glass jar with 50ml of product, and doesn’t come with a spatula, but like I always say, just make sure to apply it with clean hands and you should be a-okay. Even though it’s described as “rich”, I’d say the texture leans more towards the lightweight side, especially in comparison to the Benton cream which is quite thick. It has a slight scent, but it’s very faint. I’d describe is as sort of earthy, but it’s nothing too crazy.
I use it during my nighttime routine, as it’s just too hot in the day to use a cream. If you live in a place that’s not insanely hot, it could be a great daytime moisturizer as it absorbs pretty fast and doesn’t leave a sheen. It would be great under makeup as well. At night, I love it because it helps soothe my dry skin since the water is so drying here. I also sleep with the air conditioner on full blast which can be quite drying, but in the morning, my skin looks plump, healthy, and hydrated. All you need is a tiny, slightly smaller than a dime sized amount, and it’s enough to cover your whole face. I’d say that one jar could easily last 2 months or more.
What I like most about this cream is that it’s just a really great, no fuss, all purpose moisturizer. It delivers in exactly the way you’d expect a moisturizer to. It’s not heavy, it’s not sticky, it absorbs easily, and it’s wonderfully hydrating. In a world where we can get caught up in all the brightening, tightening, pore clearing, acne-ridding products, the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing cream is a breath of fresh air. I even use a tiny bit on my hands at the end of my skin care routine, as it feels really nice on my cuticles and nails.
When I first started to use it, I immediately thought it would make an awesome gift for those people in your life who maybe aren’t into skin care, and you want to get them a high quality, practical moisturizer. Skin care is one of those gifts that can be hard to get for other people, but this moisturizer is just so simple and effective that I can’t imagine anyone not liking it. It would also be a great gift for a man, as the scent isn’t outrageously floral and overpowering like a lot of Korean products are. If you have sensitive skin, this would also be a great moisturizer as it’s non-irritating to the skin.
