[Review] Dear Klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++

Hello everyone! :)

Are you ready for summer? πŸ–️

Well, change of weather might sounds irrelevant to those who stay in tropical weather (yes, that's me!), nevertheless you shouldn't skip sunscreen anyhow.

Today I will be reviewing Soft Airy UV Essence by dear, Klairs (or, better known as Klairs). I have been using it for a good three months now.

Are you eye-ing on this sunscreen? Read on to find out more about this product!



What product is this?

Klairs' Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA++++ is an everyday sun protector for every skin type, even sensitive skin. It's cruelty-free and vegan friendly.

This sunscreen is chosen by "GLOWPICK" as the Best Sun Block on Feb. 2019. "GLOWPICK" is a cosmetic review app by user's estimation from Korea. πŸŽ–️



What are the key ingredients and their functions?

Niacinamide (Vitamin B) is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. Also, it improves our natural skin barrier.

Adenosine has anti-wrinkle benefits due to its ability to energize skin’s surface, hence it looks smoother and younger.

Panthenol is a form of vitamin B5, often used as a moisturizer and lubricating compound.

Beta-Glucan is an anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory component.

Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil is a red–orange oil derived from sea buckthorn plants. This skin conditioning ingredient is popular not only because of its anti-inflammatory properties, but also for its rich antioxidants properties.



Packaging

As you can see, the sunscreen comes in a white plastic tube and a silver twist cap.

Despite it's minimalistic design, it does give you a "high-end" product kinda feeling. Thanks to its good choice of colour and sleek design.



Texture and Scent

From its name, we're expecting a smooth-and-airy texture - that kind of texture where it sits on the skin yet not suffocating. You know what I mean? πŸ€”

As you can see from above, the formula is white in colour. Texture wise, I would say it's between cream and gel. Not watery at all, and at the same time, not like those super thick butter-cream texture.

Let's see how it looks like when it's spread on the skin surface.

From the photos, it looks creamy and shiny (notice the reflection). However, it doesn't feel sticky and greasy.

Let's see how it looks like when it's fully spread out and absorbed into the skin.

Fully absorbed! πŸ‘πŸ»

Weird enough, it smells like a mixture of lemon and rubber. πŸ˜…

Nothing like what I've encountered before. The smell is very light and one can easily missed it. So I don't think it's an issue.



Application

As suggested by Klairs the brand itself, it's best to apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Last step of your morning skincare routine, as well as the first step of your makeup routine. Thoroughly apply to the skin.



Personal Experience

I have been applying it religiously and literally everyday in the morning. It's my current AM skincare routine. I like the weightless, light-moisturizing finish. Also with its high SPF and PA level, it guards the skin against UVA and UVB without leaving white cast.

Even though I'm not wearing any makeup, or just going out for grocery shopping, this is the one thing I'm applying before leaving my house. Biggest reason why I can't go out without sunscreen is because I don't wish to see my freckles flare up or getting darker.

Since this sunscreen is water-based, it holds a level of moisture, which can turn out to be slippery, especially when you stand directly under the sun right after application.

For me, as I have combination to oily skin type, I would space out the time between applying moisturizer and Soft Airy UV Essence, just to give time for the moisturizer fully absorbed into the skin. Otherwise, my skin would look sweaty and shiny because all the products are just sitting on top of the surface, not being fully absorbed into the skin.


Review; Dear Klairs' Soft Airy UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++


Overall, I think it's quite a decent sunscreen to use on a daily basis. πŸ€“ Not restricted to apply on the face, but also on the body, since there is no colour to it.

Is this THE SUNSCREEN that I would live for? Hmm, not really, as it can be a bit too moisturizing for me on some days.
