Review | Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun Lotion & Mochi BB Cushion. Hi everyone. How's your day? Hope you're​ doing great and enjoying​ the day. Today I'll be sharing with you two(2) product from Klairs, a Korean brand. I have few blog post reviewing on Korean products if you saw and read my previous entry, so I assume I have been slowly attached to Korean skincare and their cosmetics. High five to the fans. Klairs's slogan, "Simple, But Enough" did capture my attention to know more and learn about this brand. Their products are mild and gentle on skin, suitable for all skin type including sensitive skin and usable for all four seasons.

Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun Lotion

I first know about this brand through WishtrendTV, a YouTube channel from Wishtrend (Korean online shop). I enjoy watching Eunice's advice and skincare routine on the video. Apart from that, with so much beauty review brag about how good this brand was, I am now becoming more curious and eager to try their products. 

There are three guiding principles behind Klairs's successful. They only use the best ingredients, being cruelty-free, and providing high quality products for reasonable prices. And I love to highlight that skincare from Klairs creates without the addition of any chemicals, alcohol, parabens, and artificial colors or perfumes that may irritate skin. 

Okey, I am done with a little background about the brand. Won't hold you back, let's get to the product review. I will be reviewing two product, first(1) Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun Lotion and second(2) Klairs Mochi BB Cushion. It's​ gonna be a long entry. Stay tuned yah.

Sun Lotion

Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun lotion SPF 40/PA++ 
Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun lotion SPF 40/PA++ is a sunscreen lotion. It is designed to protect our skin (including those with sensitive skin) from both UV rays and infrared light. If you care about you skin, please shield it from this harmful rays. I am very sure, most of you know that one of the factor that can lead to skin problem is cause by these rays. Take extra attention and please, treat your skin like a baby. Wearing a sunscreen or anything with the same function is needed during daytime. 

And yes, this sun lotion is in ice blue. Honestly, this is my very first lotion with blue color and I am super excited to try this. This blue color is from the key ingredient, guaiazulene formulated in the Mid-day Sun Lotion. It claims to calm irritated skin as well as tone down the redness from harsh UV rays.

Klairs Sunscreen Lotion

Review Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun lotion SPF 40/PA++

This sun lotion is packed in a slim white-blue tube with a twist white cap. Has a very small opening like a needle size for product to come out which is very good. It is hygienic​ and I can control the amount of product I need. Seriously I don't have any issue with the packaging. I love it all. 

It said at the box, this sunscreen lotion has a waterful texture. It is creamy and very concentrated and I don't feel any sticky feeling when apply to my face. It also absorbs faster onto the skin and very light weight. I almost can't tell if I am wearing this sun lotion or not. Using my fingers, I apply the product with the amount for the sun shield purpose. 

Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun lotion is in ice blue shade since it has the characteristic blue color from guaiazulene. When I swipe the sun lotion onto my skin, the ice blue color slowly change to a lighter finish on my skin. I just apply an adequate amount onto my face since it appears to be a bit bright on my skin. For a darker skin tone, I suggest you to test with a sample first. I am okay with the tone because it isn't affected very much. The skin tone brightens as a natural look and leave a refreshing finished. For those who want a slightly stronger tone fixation effect (can be use as a makeup base for example), try using a sponge application when applying the product. 

Nice soft medicine-like scent. Not overpowering. The scent slowly fade away. Since Klairs doesn't include perfume in their products, it become a good pick for all skin type since perfume can be uncomfortable sometimes for those with sensitive skin. 

The Mid-day Blue Sun lotion leave refreshing feeling on my skin and I love how it hydrated my skin (I have normal to dry skin). The texture is light weight and give a light finish without the oily feeling. I am happy that this lotion doesn't leave a sticky feeling on my skin. When applied, it has a subtle glow that transforms into a natural looking finish. 

Mid-day Sun Blue Lotion is an effective sun protection that comes with SPF40/PA++ which is suitable for everyday use and can be applied to every skin types without drying out the skin. Additional points, it can be used as a makeup base with natural tone correction leaving a healthy and refreshing look. Would recommend this if you have finished your current sunscreen and if you wanna have a different feeling using a blue sun lotion. It is a good pick especially for those with sensitive skin.

Review Klairs Mochi BB Cushion

The packaging is definitely adorable cute! It is in pure white. Just with the packaging itself, it did capture my love! I can't take my hands off from this cute packaging. Plus point for its built-in cap, it meets the standard of hygienic case. Twist the cap in anticlockwise direction to open. Then press the sponge inside with the puff to pick the product. Not to leave the puff behind, it is soft too. Upside with cute mochi picture, downside puff is like the BB color. For me, it is a convenient portable BB cushion pact, thanks to the excellent design, the refill pack is available and it is a travel friendly pack too.

The texture is light weight and I love that! Rather than the normal liquid BB, the Mochi BB Cushion is designed as a balm-type texture. This balm-type product normally known can help to fill in the pores for a silky smooth finish. And I can say that, I am starting to fall in love again with this Mochi BB Cushion because of this balm-type texture. It did a good job in minimizing the visibility of my pores! How awesome it is? What I like more about this BB Cushion is, it also blend very well onto skin and it is quiet moisturizing, doesn't leave a drying feeling. Thanks to the puff, the product is very soft and smooth on skin when applying.

From Wishtrend, the Mochi BB Cushion has an apricot-beige tone that complements both yellow and red skin in a natural way. It said that this BB cushion is perfect for those with Korean code 15, 21, 23 and MAC NW20 skin tone. And I personally feel a little bit sad about the color. It doesn't​ fit my skin tone. It turns my skin into too much brighter to the point I feel like my skin turns whiter? Since I love natural looking skin with a light makeup on my face, this BB cushion did disappoint me a bit. Sadly said, I am not recommending this cushion for those with darker skin tone. Please try the sample first if you would love to have an experiment playing around with the shade. It would be awesome if this cushion have other color selection. I really wish that, Korean cosmetics company would break away from the 21-23 norm and offering​ more shades and tones. But then, I become a happy girl again when I finished the makeup routine with a bit compact powder on my face with the shade near to my skin tone. Now the combination is great. 

Forget about the color this cushion offers, Mochi BB Cushion has a sweet soft scent. Smell like a baby and I personally love it very much.

Mochi BB Cushion

Klairs Mochi BB Cushion gives a semi matte finished on my skin. It is perfect for brighten the skin tone. And I love how the bb cushion correcting my kinda uneven skin tone. It is also a perfect product to neutralize redness on the skin in natural way at the same time giving a healthy look. Apart from being a bit brighter on skin, I personally love the balm-type texture from this bb because it beautifully blend so well on my skin. It feel soft and smooth when applying the product. It also doesn't leave a sticky feeling. 

And here come the most asking questions. How about the coverage? Coverage refers to the opacity of the makeup, or how much it will conceal on the skin. And for me who love the normal application, the coverage is light to medium. But, wait a second because I have a good info for those who love a better coverage by using Mochi BB Cushion. The picture shown below are the 3 ways to use Mochi BB Cushion in different coverage and finishing.

Another love to give for Mochi BB Cushion is the staying power through the day. It is quite long lasting and not cakey. I tried and personally experience the Mochi BB Cushion can last up to 7-8 hours without a big difference from before when first applied. Mochi BB Cushion is quite good in oil control. It is just a bit oily on t-zone area after about 5-6 hours. What I do? Just pick up the product and slightly touch up at the selected zone. And then, you will have a new refreshing face. Horray! 

I really love the packaging of Klairs Mochi BB Cushion so much. It is cute, hygienic, portable and very convenient. The balm-type texture and the sweet nice scent, I love them all. I will be a happy girl ever if Mochi BB Cushion have multiple choices of shade that will suite my skin tone perfectly. If you're okay with the shade and if you're​ under fair to medium skin tone, I really recommend this Mochi BB Cushion. It is good in sebum control, doesn't leave a sticky feeling, very easy to blend and it is long lasting! Did I told you that Mochi BB Cushion have SPF40? Yes it has. With this cushion, now you can skip the sun block if you're in a hurry. With so much benefits written, I think this product wort the try. No wonder, Mochi BB Cushion have lots of fans! It is a good one indeed.
