KLAIRS Illuminating Supple BB Cream Ingredients
FYI, here's some of they KEY INGREDIENTS:
★ ADENOSINE: penetrates deeply into the skin to help prevent wrinkles, reduce UV B sun damage. It is particularly effective for peri orbital wrinkles( crow’s feet) and glabellar ( forehead) frown lines. It has been shown to enhance the effects of botox in facial wrinkle reduction. RG-Cell uses Adenosine delivered in a Lecithin based “Adenosome” for enhanced deep epidermal and dermal delivery.
★ ALLANTOIN: Allantoin is a natural soothing, anti-irritant, and skin protectant that increases the water content of the extracellular matrix which provides structural support to cells and is an important part of connective tissue. Allantoin also increases the smoothness of the skin; promotes cell replication; and promotes the healing of wounds, burns, and scars.
★ HYALURONIC ACID: Water tank, excellent hydrating properties.
★ NIACIN AMIDE: vitamin B3 / nicotinic acid.
NO PARABENS and NO ALCOHOL :) YAY! You'll find TONS of herbal extract too, which is good. The only downside is, this BB cream is not talc-free and not fragrance-free.

KLAIRS Illuminating Supple BB Cream OIL TEST
However, the scars and pigmentations were more noticeable irl. CANON, u're being too nice!
What I like about it:
★ Has a very natural yellow undertone which perfectly matches my skintone! Yay!
★ No creasing, No cakey finish.
★ NO PARABENS!
★ No artificial coloring.
★ Natural result (refer to photo above ^^). Doesn't give me GRAYISH/whitish cast.
★ Medium buildable coverage.
★ Lots of herbal/natural ingredients.
What I don't like about it:
- Oil control is not that good, doesn't live up to their claim (but this might be good for those with drier skin)
- Staying power isn't as good, possibly caused by the excess oil from the BB cream itself.
- Contains talc & fragrance.
Remember that I said I won't be using BB Cream anymore a while ago? Nah, now I have few exception since I've found some BB cream that are quite good and comparable with the actual foundation. But still, I'm going to be honest with you, foundation is unbeatable. By this I really mean it that it's impossible for a BB cream to beat foundation (in terms of coverage, flawlessness, and even a naturalness). HOWEVER, sometimes, on busy-low-maintenance days, BB cream can be a good choice. That's what I think. Okayyy, enough talking about all the foundie stuff. Here goes my verdict of KLAIRS Illuminating Supple Blemish Balm Cream!
First, the consistency. This is the main thing that urges me to talk about foundation. Yes! Klairs Illuminating BB cream has a liquidy consistency that is similar to liquid foundation. Rather runny, and very easy to blend. Even a rough blending will create a flawless non-cakey result, perfect for first- timers. ^-^
Despite being a bit watery, Klairs BB cream has a medium-buildable coverage. It evens-out complexion naturally and won't leave a grayish cast. I also like its yellow undertone (I'm a BOBBI BROWN believer) and I know that yellowish foundie/BB works best on me.
The result it gives is a semi-dewy finish. I have oily skin so actually I'd prefer to be as matte as possible.
On my face, it will stay around 3 hours at the longest before the oil start to kick-in. I tried to use it over a base (I used The Face Shop lovely me:ex base in green) and it could prolong the staying power a bit.
Though there's a pre-caution about no to use the BB cream on blemishes (that's a weird one, I think) but I used it anyway, haha! Luckily I didn't find any trouble with my skin afterwards. It doesn't aggravates the existing blemishes anyway, which is nice~
Lastly, I think this BB cream would be PERFECT for BB cream lover with DRY skin. It has an excellent hydrating properties, thanks to hyaluronic acid. I'll use this BB cream when I won't be out for too long because I love how natural it looks on my skin :3
Staying power: 3/5
