Fun Fact: I was probably the earliest Wishtrender (or even person?) to get my hands on this new release! Which is why I had more time trying this out and spoiler alert, this is hands down the best sunscreen I have tried so far!
If you don’t know me, I am very picky with my sunscreens. The other Klairs Mid-day Blue sunscreen did not impress me at all, and for some reason I think it’s been discontinued? But fret not, the new Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence is here to save the day!!
When I first squeezed this out of the packaging, I was shocked as I expected something that is more watery rather than creamy. I thought, oh, this may not surprise me that much and I was really apprehensive about it at first glance. But to my surprise, this left a soft matte finish, barely left a white cast, if not none at all! It’s really difficult to amaze me when it comes to sunscreen because most of them have a greasy finish which doesn’t do us oily-skin types any good. But this left a semi matte finish and doesn’t even make you look like you wore sunscreen at all, but gives you a nice glow that doesn’t make others think you just ran a marathon!
Actually contemplated posting this photo above because honestly it’s just looks like a photo of my hand, but actually it’s after application of the UV Essence!
The Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence is SPF 50 PA++++ which means it is able to guard your skin from UVA and UVB rays! The weather has been so good in Seoul lately, and with the sun shining so brightly, I am so happy that my skin is protected by using this sunscreen!
Also looking at the website, the sunscreen contains alot of nice ingredients such as Niacinamide, Adenosine, Panthenol, Beta-Glucan and Sea Buckthorn Oil! I guess they’ll help with hydration and brightening?
Klairs said that this is suitable for sensitive skin, and I think it’s really true! By far the best sun protecting item I used thus far! It really feels like you’re not wearing anything at all, hence the name Essence I guess?
This item is available to purchase on Wishtrend for USD 20.70 now and I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a sunscreen that does not leave a white cast, feel greasy or simply want to up your sunscreen game! Also, Thank you Wishtrend for always remembering me and sending me new products to try!!
