Dear Klairs is an eco-friendly brand, and its products are known for their simple, minimalistic design.
For this bb cream, the colors were restricted to black and cream color, with the words "You look so wonderful just the way you are. Be natural, Klairs" written bellow the product's name, which is a huge plus for me.

Dear Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream comes in a sleek, soft plastic tube with a small nozzle to make dispensing the right amount of product easier.

The scent:
It has a pleasant scent, that makes me think about one of my childhood friends.

The performance:
This BB cream's consistency isn't too liquid nor too solid, and when applied, it feels so light.

What made me hesitate a lot before purchasing this bb cream is the fact that it comes only in one shade, and I've only saw it swatched by girls with yellow undertones, that's why I was afraid it would be a bit yellowish for me, but seems like I was worrying for nothing. The product blended perfectly with my natural skin color on both my face and the darker skin on my hand, and it suprisingly worked just fine for my sister who has a much darker skin than mine.

This bb cream has a natural semi-matte finish, reduces the redness without leaving any grey cast nor accentuating the dry patches around my nose, leaving the skin soft and smooth, without any stickiness.
Even though the initial coverage is very light, it is definitely buildable. But if you are looking for a full coverage, you can pair it up with Dear Klairs Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer.
It claims that it has oil control properties, which I couldn't verify since my skin produces barely any oils during this time of the year, that's why I used a blotting paper to check it out, and I think that it does an okay work, which means that it works for every skin type, oily one included.



- Its smart color system that makes it suit different skin tones
- Light formula
- Pleasant scent.
- Non sticky.
- Non greasy.
- Doesn't accentuate my dry patches
- Semi matte finish.
- High SPF and PA
- Lovely packaging, and lovelier expression


- If you are looking for high coverage, you might not like it.
- only one shade, so it might not suit those with a deeper skin or a paaaaler skin tone.

Where can you buy it?

  1. The ingredients list is a bit scary but it does seem to give a nice finish.

    1. the ingredients list is pretty safe, especially if you compare it with other bb creams.

  2. Quick question the first product is a blemish creme yet in the Caution section it says not to use it on blemishes. That is really interesting.

    1. It's a bb cream, you shouldn't put it on open scars and picked on pimples (not regular blemishes), otherwise it would be transferred to blood circulation.

  3. Sounds like an awesome BB cream. I really enjoy reading about these products, it's always nice to know what works and what doesn't.

  4. Wow that is a high rating and I can see why! What a great illuminating blemish, I had never heard of the brand before.

    1. This brand is mostly known in Korea, that's probably why you have never heard about it

  5. Looks like this product is great! I have normal-dry skin and I always look for products suitable for my face. I have a yellowish face skin in winter time and this bb seems to be the answer.

    1. It would probably suit u since you have yellow undertones. And it's absolutely great for dry skins

  6. I love reading about the new products and its finishing is smooth and blends completely with skin!

  7. I’ve never heard of this brand before, is it available only in Korea? Love that is eco-friendly! Thanks for the great review!

    1. It is available online with international shipping. I'm not sure whether it's available in local stores outside of Asia or not

  8. I love how well it blends with your skin! Great review!


  9. Looks pretty cool. I'm not much of s makeup wearer, but I did enjoy reading your review. Very well done and thanks for sharing.
