Review: Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream

9:11 PM

Hello everyone! So as most of you may know already, I am a wishtrend affiliate, which is why Wishtrend approached me and asked me to review their new Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream! 

Before I start, I want to let everyone know that I did not pay for this product, nonetheless I wrote this review considering my real opinions and thoughts (which I was also encouraged to do by Wishtrend.) Also, this post will include affiliate links, and I completely understand if you prefer not to use them.

Brand:
Dear, Klairs

Product Name:
Midnight Blue Calming Cream

Product Description and Claims:
Klairs says:
"The KLAIRS’ Rich Moist Soothing line is loved for its excellent calming & moisturizing effects by many consumers. We believe the primary reason for the popularity of the Soothing line was due to the high satisfaction most of our customers felt from the powerful moisturzing effect. However, we wanted to design the optimal product for the few customers who were still experiencing irritations from external stimuli with additional skin concerns. After a long term of researching with the R&D team, the KLAIRS’s Midnight Blue Calming Cream was created to go that extra mile."

Midnight Blue Calming Cream is a comforting moisture cream that provides the skin with intense, soothing hydration. It is formulated using revolutionary guaiazulene combining with Centella asiatica extract and various peptides to recover damaged skin cells from stress and stimulation.

The main ingredients are as following:

It is herbal ingredients extracted from Chamomile which has natural deep purple color and this makes the blue color of the cream. It soothes and cools down an inflammation on damaged skin, also has an effect on skin regeneration. (For example, it has been proved that it has good effect on 89.7% of sunburn, 60.6%of eczema, and 86.5% of ulcerative skin disease in clinical test of Japan. Therefore it is used as a raw material of medicine such as burn ointment)

Centella Asiatica Extract

-Sodium Hyaluronate, Ceramide 3, Butyrospermum, Parkii (Shea Butter), Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil



Scent:
The scent is very pleasing to me! It smells very fresh and herbal, but not too strong or overwhelming at all.

Packaging:
This cream is comes in a small sturdy jar, which looks and feels pretty high end to be honest. It also comes with a small plastic spatula and a plastic cover to keep it hygienic.




Consistency:
The cream is very lightweight and doesn't feel neither sticky nor greasy. It is also very blendable, but takes a little time to be absorbed.






How I Use It:
I apply a little bit of the cream on the areas that need more moisture, such as beneath my eyes and around my nose (as the last step of my skincare routine). Moreover, if I have any irritation i'll also apply the cream as it also has soothing properties. 

Effects:
My skin doesn't need a lot of moisture to begin with, and the cream is more targeted towards sensitive skin which I don't have, which is why I couldn't fully test the performance of this cream. However, I do feel like this product makes a great eye cream, as it refreshes my under eye area and provides sufficient moisture. As soon as I applied this cream I felt a soothing (slightly tingling) sensation, which ends up subconsciously reassuring me that the product is effective. Furthermore, my sister burnt herself on her elbow recently, and asked her to try the cream as it is both soothing and moisturising. She only applied it once, but she did say that it helped!




Pros:
-Hygienic and sturdy packaging + spatula 
-Soothing
-Refreshing
-Works well as an eye cream

Cons:
-Not totally effective on my skin as it isn't on the sensitive side or dry.

Conclusion
Recommend? Yes! Repurchase? If I don't find a better eye cream. 
This cream is very suitable for sensitive skins and for any irritation, and if you have oily skin, this product works great as an eye-cream!! It isn't the most moisturising cream i've tried, but I believe that isn't what the cream is going for, but perhaps more along the aisle of "soothing" and "de-stressing."

As they Klairs very well summarised "SIMPLE, BUT ENOUGH."

Score:
8/10
