Review: Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun Lotion SPF40/PA++


P1000371_Moment (2)

Happy Monday everyone! I have another skincare product need to share with you.  It is warm and sunny this week in San Francisco. Although I use sun block regularly, I still want to find one that doesn’t contain alcohol, doesn’t break me out, and lightweight. When I saw this Klairs Mid-day Blue Sun Lotion SPF40/PA++, I feel like I should give it a try since I have positive experiences from Klairs. I decided to buy it from Wishtrend along with other products. I have been using it for over a month now. I think it is the time for me to write an honest review. I also use it in my Simple Everday Makeup.

I have heard a lot of love and hate opinions about this sun block. Before talking about how I feel, let’s talk about what makes this sun block special.

Ingredient List:

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Butylene Glycol, Titanium Dioxide, Glycerin, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Niacinamide, Polysorbate 60, Zinc Oxide, Isoamyl p-Methoxycinnamate, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Chlorphenesin, Xanthan Gum, Arginine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Betaine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Lactobacillus Ferment, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil,  Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Guaiazulene, Centella Asiatica Extract, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8

This sunscreen is designed to provide UV and heat protection. It can moisture our skin without stickiness and gentle enough for sensitive skin. It also absorbs very fast with a little white cast. (I will address this later) The sunscreen is slightly blue because of their key ingredient Guaiazulene which helps to calm our skin.

For me, this sunscreen gets absorbed into my skin fast with a healthy glow and not sticky or oily. The white cast doesn’t show on my hand in the pictures. I think I didn’t put much so it doesn’t show, but when I apply on my face, it has noticeable white cast on my face. Interesting enough that the white cast covers my redness and even out my skin tone. I actually really like this. It maybe annoying for people with darker skin tone, but I think it will be fine if you don’t apply too much and let it gets absorbed into your skin. I think it is why it can be used as a primer.

I tried using it alone and under makeup. When I use it alone, it is good for 4 hours. After I get off my work or after 6 hours, I can see there are white things on my pores. I am not sure if it is clogging my pores, but it blocks my face oil for sure. Let me put in this way: I can see this sunscreen on top of my face oil. It is not powdery or melting. It just on top on my face. It doesn’t make my fine line visible, unlike foundation or BB cream. It locks my face oil and doesn’t stick between my fine lines. When I use it as a primer, the similar thing happens. My foundation and BB cream get slippy faster because of the oil gets trapped. I thought I have more face oil than usual, but I prefer to think it blocks my oil under this sunscreen.

Besides this oily issue, it also makes me break out. I always have one or two new tiny pimples after I use this sunscreen. I clean it off like makeup and make sure don’t touch my face during the day. It still breaks me out. It really makes me disappointed. I really like how it covers my redness and even out my skin tone so nice. I also don’t mind the oily issue too much, but if anything breaks my skin out, it just a big NO. It breaks me out maybe because of the oily issue I had. I am still not sure.

I have watched and heard some positive reviews about it, and those negative reviews mainly complain about the light-blue/white cast. Since I don’t mind the cast problem too much, I decided to try. The original price is $20 USD on Wishtrend, and it is not worth the price for me since it breaks me out and has the oily issue for me. I don’t recommend this sunscreen for people have oily or combination skin. I think people with normal or dry skin can give it a try. I think without the oily issue, it won’t break you out.

If you read my experience and still interest in trying it, you can purchase it on WishTrend. You can go to my August Promotion post to get discount information. Anyway, tell me what do you think about this sunscreen. I still have half a bottle need to finish. I probably use it for 4 hours and take it off to avoid oil gets trapped on my face and have clog pores. I also want to write about something I learn about sunscreen like different kinds of sunscreen and the ingredients. Would you be interested in reading it?

  1. Never tried this brand before at all…I don’t really see it on YesStyle (which is usually where I get my asian skincare stuff from). But that’s too bad that it breaks you out! I rarely have this problem but it has happened before, and it is the worse because you don’t know how to treat the breakout half the time and just panic lol.

    I am still learning about sunscreen actually and only in the last year I started to use everyday. So more info would be nice. 🙂

    1. I think the ingredient list is fine. It just they trap my face oil so whenever I touch my face, that area will have break out on the next day. At least I am trying new product one by one so I know is because of this one. If I switch my routine completely, I won’t know where is the cause and get so panic XD
      I will gather more information and write an informative post. 😉 Thanks <3
