Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish BB : Worth a try ?

klairs10

I’m back with a new product to introduce to you, even if the brand might already be familiar to you through my last blogpost about the Rich Moist Soothing line.
Today, I’m going to write about a very promising BB cream, which is already quite popular among beauty blogs since it seems to be amazing.

This BB cream promises to :

  • Adapt to the complexion: 3/5

If there is one thing that completely frustrates me in this cool product is its UNIQUE shade. Why Klairs, WHY ? The pigmentation is still very present, but I believe that their “smart color system” was a risky bet : It is slightly too clear to me. Nothing dramatic, but I have to be objective and that point is not really respected in my opinion, imagining that it won’t fit the lightest and darkest complexions.

  • To adapt to all skin types (dry to oily, through sensitive and acne-prone): 4/5

I only have one skin so it seems a bit tricky to answer for them all, but having read my girls with very dry skin who have enjoyed this, my combination skin liked it too ! Note that this is a non-comedogenic product (which does NOT cause nor stimulate acne) which is absolutely not negligible for me.
Concerning its promise of controlling sebum… it’s not very disappointing but not great though: My T-zone is shiny by the end of the day, but once again it’s not dramatic compared to other general products. It has a dewy finish, so I think it’s still doing its job well that can not be compared with mattifying products.

  • To brighten the complexion: 5/5

We really can’t say it doesn’t: No grayish neutral sub-tone out there, this BB is very brightening. A picture is worth 1000 words.

I enjoyed this BB, but I still am a bit disappointed because I would have liked a small variation of shades for my girls (since it fits me pretty well), and a cushion version, oh yes !! (I will email them, seriously. haha)
The fact that it is non-comedogenic makes me want to advise it to all acne-prone skins. It won’t to cure acne, but you can doll yourself up with this product : This is already a good point, and a very good reason to stop foundations!
Note that it also has anti-wrinkle agents (yes, it doesn’t hurt anyone, even teens. haha) And a good sun protection (SPF40 PA ++).

Still, I find it a bit pricy : I think the brand should review it downwards. This is still a good investment in my opinion, it is far below western luxury complexion products, which however has a quite good ingredients list.

This BB cream really suits all skin types. Ultimately, it is a successful bet for Klairs!
