Korean Beauty With Klairs From Wishtrend!

Korean Beauty With Klairs From Wishtrend!

Hey everyone!

Korean beauty has been creeping up in a lot of places over the past few years and it’s something I’d been admiring but hadn’t yet indulged in. It’s safe to say when I was contacted by Wishtrend* to try a few of their Korean beauty products I was super excited to get my hands on a couple of things! I chose two skincare bits from the brand ‘Klairs’ and have been trying them out for a little while. Here are my thoughts on them…

Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish // $23 for 110g = around £17

Despite being called black sugar, it’s actually dark brown in colour and surprisingly smells subtly like curry powder. It’s not an off-putting scent though and the consistency is really quite thick and gloopy. The instructions advise you to mix it with water before application or for more sensitive skin to dilute it with your normal cleansing oil.

On using the scrub, I decided to wet my face beforehand and apply it straight onto my skin instead of mixing it first. The exfoliant particles are gentle and feel slightly like what I would describe as larger granules of sugar. I usually tend to stick to using scrubs on just my T zone but I decided to use this all over my face as I felt it was gentle enough. After rubbing it in circular motions around my face and washing it off, I was really pleasantly surprised. My skin felt really super soft and all round well cleansed. After using it a few times, my skin is definitely feeling quite a bit softer and the appearance of blackheads has decreased. It’s safe to say I am really impressed by this scrub and will be keeping this in my skincare routine!

Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream // $24 for 30ml = around £18

i have to admit, I asked for this cream as I thought it was a rich moisture cream. It turns out that it’s sole purpose is to soothe the skin and not so much for hydration. Although it isn’t the product I thought it was, it’s actually quite suitable for my skin at the moment. If you’ve read my post on the GlamGlow Supermud Mask, you’ll see my skin has been really quite bad in areas recently due to medication. It can get really quite sore and irritated sometimes so hopefully this cream will be a nice calming addition for my skin. Especially as there is no scent to it at all.

On application it does provide a cooling element although nothing too intense. It provides a good barrier between the skin and any irritants for a while as it is quite a thick cream. What it doesn’t provide though, is deep hydration. Although it doesn’t claim to provide anything of the sort, I was still quite surprised because of the thickness of the product. This product would be perfect for someone who has super sensitive skin and needs something that will not clog it up but provide protection and some tranquility for the skin. It’d also be particularly useful to apply as aftersun. Although this isn’t something I’d use on the daily, it’s definitely a really handy product to have when having a skin flare up or to take away on holiday!

Wishtrend* also have an offer on their Midnight Blue set in the month of March so now is the perfect time to buy if it sounds like the product for your skin! You can check it out here*.

    I haven’t tried any Korean beauty bits but always hear great stuff about it! The calming cream sounds like it would be good for me right now – I find it really hard to find good skincare bits as my skin is prone to breakouts!
    Great post lovely! xx

      Yeah I definitely think the calming cream would be great for your skin, it’s really gentle and soaks in so fast! X

    I’ve heard a lot about Korean beauty in general but haven’t found a product interesting yet. However im definitely eyeing this brand now

      All the ones I’d seen before this were more novelty products with animals etc on but these have been really helpful for my skin! X

    These products sound a little interesting! I’m unsure if they’ll be suitable for myself though, as I have really sensitive skin and I’m struggling at the moment. I’ve never thought to use Korean skincare products though, might have to look more into them. Your review is great, definitely given me another brand to look at.

      I definitely think both of these would be suitable for sensitive skin! They’re really gentle and the face cream is cooling too!

      They’re really nice and gentle products, I’d recommend them for anyone 🙂

    I’ve heard so much about Korean beauty products but never tried them myself. I’d love to try the black sugar facial polish, but the scent you described is slightly putting me off lol they do look very interesting!

      They seem a bit more gentle than ours which is good but I do also love a good proper abrasive facial scrub! Xx

    I love the sound of both of these products! I love the serum that they sent me but unfortunately mine leaked everywhere randomly, I was absolutely gutted as I was loving using it! The only thing I didn’t like was the smell, it reminded me of that biscuit fake tan smell. I really like that the cream comes with a little spatula, super cute and I’d love to try that out, especially after Winter has ruined my skin! x

    I have been using Korean beauty products and the Korean beauty skincare method for the past two years, I never came across this brand before so it was good to read about it. I like the sound of the blue calming cream, I need something like that at hand. Great review!

    Both of these products sound really nice! I’d love to try the calming cream actually, I think it would be great for Summer. Korean beauty products have been on my wishlist for a while but I haven’t had the chance to try any yet xx
