[BEAUTY REVIEW] Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++ ft. Natta Cosme


BB creams are in vogue these days. Yes today I want to talk about BB creams - they are everywhere these days, but finding a great one is not an easy task. BB cream (short for blemish balm or blemish base) is a must-have in every beauty lover's makeup bag. It combines the benefits of skin care and makeup in one simple step by acting as a moisturiser, primer, concealer and a light foundation to provide an even, natural-looking complexion. Most BB formulas also provide anti-aging properties and sun protection. So what's not to love? :D I always love to try out various different brands of BB cream, thank you Natta Cosme once again for sending me Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++ for review purposes. You can read about my previous review on Klairs product HERE.


Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream promises whitening, anti-wrinkle care and protects skin from sunlight. Compared to the older version, this BB cream is upgraded by adding hyaluronic acid which enables deep moisturizing effect and sebum control powder which maintains makeup all day. With SPF40 PA++, it gives complete coverage of all spectrum of UV rays. No wonder it is one of the best sellers of Klairs!

Its unique smart color system is suitable for any skin tone and type, even sensitive and acne-prone! Capturing your natural skin tone color, Klairs BB Cream pulls out the natural beauty of individual skin tone.


Another thing I like about this brand is the fact that it is alcohol and paraben free and it does not contain artificial colors, allowing us to enjoy low irritants with safe ingredients. Also against animal testing!



Packaging wise, it is very handy, sleek and chicly designed. 40ml may be too big for some girls, but I think the size is just nice. I love the black on almost-beige colour theme and all the details you need to know about the product is on the tube and the box. Some are in Korean words though since it is manufactured in Korea, but it is not a very big problem after all. The narrowly-pointed opening allows you to control the amount you want and easily clean it up after.


Upon swatching on my hand, the cream looks a shade lighter than my natural skin tone, but once blended out and left to settle for a couple of minutes, it matches my skin tone quite well. It has a light scent when applied, which I really love. Not visible under the camera but I like how it seems to brighten my skin


Gentle reminder from Natta Cosme: if you have oily skin just like I do, it is recommended to apply BB cream with a sponge! By using a gentle patting pressure near your eyes, you prevent the fine lines that may show up when the dragging, stroke motion strain the skin around your eye, which especially sensitive. It is easier to achieve that flawless finish by using a sponge, too! Here we have Cerro Queen Natural Emulsion Powder Puff :)


How to use?

Get your vintage-bow hair claw ready! Apply an adequate amount of BB cream onto the sponge. Blend out from the under eye area to the lateral part of the cheek. Dab gently around the applied area to blend in well to the skin. Continue with the rest of your beauty routine like normal.


In my opinion, Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream gives off natural-looking vibe, it doesn't cake nor feels heavy on my skin, which is the last thing we want on a hot and humid day. Throughout the day the coverage wears very well, and I was really impressed that it looks just as good at the end of the day as it did at the beginning! The coverage is so light you can barely feel it. But like any other BB cream it's light coverage, so don't expect major transformation. But when I apply under foundation I can see a real transformation - it gives my make up a flawless look. I find it more suitable for people with drier skin type as it is rather moisturizing.

You can get the product from Natta Cosme HERE at the price of RM71.20. In conjunction with Mother's Day, if you purchase above RM100, you can even get RM6 discount! Here's to all the mothers who are brave and selfless, who protect and love us unconditionally, who are always there for us. Happy Mother's Day in advance! :)

  3. I can't use foundation or BB cream because my skin is too dry but cushions are not bad! If needed, I pat on Beauty Talk Day Cream. It's more of a tinted moisturizer, really..

    Following you!
