REVIEW ON KLAIRS MIDNIGHT BLUE CALMING CREAM

When Klairs launched their new products-Klairs Midnight blue calming cream, my first thought was if the cream is going to be blue?  It turns out that the cream is indeed blue because of guaiazulene is an antioxidant derived from chamomile oil.  It is a dark blue crystalline hydrocarbon and derivative of azulene, the blue colored constituent of chamomile oil which has anti-inflammatory properties.

If moisturizing just wasn’t enough for your sensitive skin,
Meet the Real Blue Cream to protect your skin from irritations & stress
Klair says,
"The KLAIRS’ Rich Moist Soothing line is loved for its excellent calming & moisturizing effects by many consumers. We believe the primary reason for the popularity of the Soothing line was due to the high satisfaction most of our customers felt from the powerful moisturzing effect. However, we wanted to design the optimal product for the few customers who were still experiencing irritations from external stimuli with additional skin concerns. After a long term of researching with the R&D team, the KLAIRS’s Midnight Blue Calming Cream was created to go that extra mile."


Q1. Why is the cream blue?
Guaiazulene, which is the key ingredient of the Blue Cream, is a plant-based component extracted
from camomile oil. It has a natural violet color, which gradually turns the cream into a gentle blue color
after the blending process.

Q2. I want to know the difference between the 'Blue Cream' & the 'regular cream' !
Different functions :The Blue Cream is made for calming rather than moisturizing, to rapidly soothe the skin in response to an irritation.

Different target areas & usage amounts :Unlike a moisturizing cream, you don't have to apply the Blue Cream to the entire face.
You only need to apply a small, adequate amount to target areas.

Different usage time : The Blue Cream creates a thin, protective layer over the surface of the skin. Night time use is recommended to assist skin regeneration & to prevent makeup from breaking the protective layer.



Q4. Should I use the 'Midnight Blue Calming Cream' or the 'Rich Moist Soothing Cream'?
They're similar but kind of different, which is the best cream for me?
Go through the checklist & choose the best for you.
1) If you want a non-irritating hydration cream for everyday use,
□ Midnight Blue Calming Cream
▣ Rich Moist Soothing Cream

2) If you want fast recovery after a spot extraction or laser procedure,
▣ Midnight Blue Calming Cream
□ Rich Moist Soothing Cream

3) If you are experiencing irritation & heat flashes after sun exposure,
▣ Midnight Blue Calming Cream
□ Rich Moist Soothing Cream

4) If you have oily skin and you want a refreshing, soothing cream,
▣ Midnight Blue Calming Cream
□ Rich Moist Soothing Cream


Main Ingredients
Guaiazulene :With herbal ingredients extracted from chamomile, it shows a dark purple color and is effective in calming the inflammation of damaged skin tissue as well as regeneration of skin cells. Containing 0.03% (similar to contents in an ointment that is currently on the market, Japanese clinical trials demonstrated effects of 89.7% in sunburns, 60.6% in eczema, and 86.5% in ulcerative skin diseases, and is used as the main raw material in burn ointments.)

Centella Asiatica Extract:  As a plant native to Madagascar, it is also known as ‘tiger grass’ and is often used in cosmetics as ‘Centella Asiatica.’ Helps regeneration in damaged skin and prevents scarring; primary ingredient in ointments.

Direction:
At the last step of your skin care routine, apply a small amount to areas of sensitivity or irritation, and gently tap in to allow full absorption. Use makeup after the cream is fully absorbed into the skin.
** The blue coloration is due to the presence of Guaiazulene

Klairs box for the Klairs Midnight blue cream is the same as their other box for Klairs products.  Only the jar for this Klairs Midnight blue cream is made of heavy dark brown glass which looks kind of elegant but it will be better if the jar is blue.

The blue cream is an eye candy to my eyes XP.  It is opaque blue cream which goes on smoothly and turns translucent on the skin. I really need very little for each application on my skin.  Using a thick layer can clog my skin.  The temporary cooling effect(lasted few seconds upon application) does feel great on the skin but it is not an invitation to use more than needed.  So, it is not for treating acne.

The cream smell faintly of soda candies or bubblegums which disappears upon application.

Although the ingredients stated there are Centella, Ceramide 3 and Guaiazulene, please do look into the list of ingredients as there are many ingredients that can potentially cause break out.  The ingredients are very hydrating and moisturising so it will be more suitable and show better result for people with skin that is dry damaged types.  If you are prone to clog skin, it is better to look into the ingredients first because shea butter is quite high on the list.

The Klairs soothing cream and Klairs Midnight blue cream are different from each other in terms of ingredients and the function so it depends on your skin needs and type.

Overall, a cream that plays better for the skin is damaged, dry or after procedure like lasers and I use it at night as occlusive to the area that tends to be drier.  It does slightly reduce my redness after 2 weeks of usage but for someone that look for fast results, you may not have patient for this.
