The product I am talking about is the Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream that has SPF 40 PA++ that I got from Wishtrend. I've used this for more than a month now and it wouldn't take that long if I didn't like it. Normally for bb creams, I test it out for a week then if my first week was terrible, I will drop it immediately. But this one is actually good.

The truthful brand, Klairs is an eco-friendly cosmetics line. Against animal testing, alcohol free, paraben free and no artificial coloring. Enjoy low irritants with great safe ingredients, ingredients that are especially safe for those with sensitive or trouble type skin.
First, I appreciate that this product isn't tested on animals. It must be really hard for animals when they are being used for product testing. It is also safer for the skin since it does not contain alcohol that may cause dryness and irritation and does not also contain paraben which is a common preservative of cosmetics.
The packaging is nice too. I am liking the slim tube type packaging because it easily fit inside my makeup storage or kit. It reminds me of a toothpaste though.
The nozzle is not that big which gives me a nice control in dispensing the product. I never experienced spillage or anything.
Upon testing it out, the first thing I noticed is that it does not have that strong gray-ish effect. It has a nice yellow-beige tone that eventually blends with my skin color. I think this comes in one shade only which is a bit of a downside because this may appear a bit light if you have deeper skin tone. As for the smell, it is slightly scented but nothing off for me.
Based on the photo above, left with bare face and right with a layer of the Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream, the coverage of this bb cream is sheer to medium (when layered). It does not look cakey or thick. Actually, it does not feel heavy or sticky on the face. It sets nicely and gives a semi-matte to matte finish depending on the weather condition.
It has SPF 40 PA ++ and it is something I also like. I am not fond of applying sunblock (I know that's bad). It gives me that sun protection that I need without the sticky-feel that other sunblocks give. In the photo above (left with flash and right without), you will see that this gives a slight white cast. But for everyday, no picture takings, it looks nice and very natural.
I tried using this with moisturizer underneath and I started getting oily 2-3 hours after. My makeup melted especially on the sides of my nose and when I went home, it looked as if I did not put any makeup at all. When I used it alone, no moisturizer and no primer too, it lasted up to 5 hours and it started fading on the sides of my nose and under eye areas. But I managed to still look presentable just by blotting the oil and wiping off sweat. After a whole day of wearing it, I still noticed my makeup when I went home. If you are going to use moisturizer, use something that is not oil-based. Good thing tho because it did not look patchy even without moisturizer underneath.
What I like:
- Convenient tube-type packaging.
- Has english translation on the box.
- Cruelty free, alcohol and paraben free.
- Has expiration date on the bottom part of the tube.
- Has high SPF.
- No gray-ish color. Has yellow-beige tone.
- Nicely scented. Not overpowering.
- Natural powdery finish.
- Brightening finish lasts pretty long. Fades in some areas tho.
- No irritations experienced.
- Slightly thick in consistency. I prefer using a sponge for the application. I find it easier than using my fingers or brush.
What I don't like:
- If I were to compare it with other bb creams, this is a bit pricey (roughly 1000 pesos).
- Not available locally, you have to order it online.
- Gives white cast when used under flash photography (tho this is a given since it has high SPF).
- Packaging: 5/5

Overall rating: 3.8/5
I am happy I was able to try this bb cream. It is not the best but it is one of those that I would want to use on a daily basis. I am definitely going to use this during cold weather because I am assured that it is going to stay on for hours.You can even skip powder if you are not as oily as I am. If I am going to use this on a sunny day (since it has high spf), I am going to make sure my moisturizer is water based and that I use a good powder with it to avoid fading and melting.
I hope you find this review helpful. Have a nice day!
