This cream perfectly levels skin color and hides pores, without corking them and without causing an acne exacerbation✅. It didn't cause a boring, the skin after it on the contrary looks more moisturized, healthy and shining, smoothes wrinkles 👌. Covering degree from mild to average, won't hide strong defects. The shade one, universal, will suit people with a light skin, but it can be admixed with other foundations to achieve more dark shade. The subtone is beige, not gray.

There are 2 disadvantages: it is not resistant, imprints on the screen and there is no sebum control promised , gloss appears in a couple of hours😕

My thoughts on Klairs illuminating supple blemish cream
I am really not a fan of this one. Before I bought it, I heard so much good things about it and thought that I just had to test it out.

The first thing that got me confused is that this only comes in one shade. So, if you are on the darker side of pale, this won’t suit you. I am usually a 23 when it comes to Korean product, and this is too light for me. One really nice thing with it thought, is that it actually has yellow undertones and not grey. If I want to wear this without bronzer I really have to mix it with a darker shade (I did not do that for this review though).

I do really like the packaging. It is simple and hygienic and you can get all of the product out of the tube.

The coverage is really light, but it is buildable. And for the claims that it covers pores and redness I would definitely say it is a fail. It applies really smooth and easy but I still have problems to get it too look nice on my skin. Some how it seems to stick to every dry patch of my face, even if I exfoliate before it enhances the dryness on my skin.

The surface of my skin looks uneven and almost powdery, so it really feels that it stays on top of my skin without blending into my skin at all.
If I layer the BB cream, it does a great job in cancelling my redness. But by adding more product it also seems to settle in my lines.

In the beginning, it feels really nice on my skin, but after a short time I really need to mist my face due to that it becomes dry again. It does set nicely and does not leave any stickiness on the skin. The finish is semi dewy and that is a finish I do prefer

The scent is really strong and I think it smells really, hmmm how to put this, well, not nice. I am really sensitive to products that are highly fragranced, and you might think it smells fine.

On my skin the claims of this products don’t seem be correct at all. Except that the redness is covered nicely when layering this product.
