Here’s everything you need to know about Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream before its official launch date on March 10th…

Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream


klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream is a comforting moisture cream that delivers intense, long-lasting, and soothing hydration. It is formulated using revolutionary Guaiazulene combined with Centella Asiatica extract and various peptides to aid recovery for damaged skin.

This targeted treatment works to rapidly soothe and calm extremely sensitive and irritated skin by restoring the healthy moisture barrier.

The cream boasts two star ingredients:

  • Guaiazulene – Herbal ingredient extracted from Chamomile flower. It’s natural color is deep purple, which is why the treatment appears blue in the jar. Clinical trials in Japan showed that Guaiazulene effectively soothes and cools down inflamed and damaged skin and boosts the recovery process. For those reason it’s often used in traditional medicine as an ointment for burns.
  • Centella Asiatica Extract – Extract from a Madagascar plant, also called “Tiger Grass.” Centella Asiatica helps regenerate damaged skin and prevent the formation of scars.

This cream comes in a small elegant black glass jar, and an outer box made of recycled cardboard. While it’s called the Midnight cream, the actual color is closer to pastel sky blue. Still gorgeous though! As for the packaging, you know my stance on jar moisturizers: give me a spatula or I will be a sad panda. klairs makes me a very happy panda, because they provided a nice clear plastic scoop, which is the most sanitary way of using a moisturizer that comes in a jar.

klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream is not unscented. It has a strong natural herbal fragrance that reminds me of YUNI serum, but despite its potency I never found it offensive or headache-inducing. From the perspective of a chronic migraine sufferer that’s really good news, because I’m sensitive to a lot of fragrances.

Apply a small amount topically on clean skin AM and PM after using a toner, serum, and moisturizer as the last step in your skincare routine. Make sure you give the cream time to absorb prior to applying makeup, or it may pill.

If you read my previous skincare reviews or follow me on Snapchat, you know I have this annoying red spot between my bottom lip and my chin that always seems to be irritated and flaky. It’s incredibly hard to cover with makeup, and some foundations make it look even more obvious. I’ve been using klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream to soothe it, and you know what, I think it’s working! It’s the only area that consistently bothers me, aside from the occasional red streaks in the outer corners of my eyes after makeup removal, and I almost gave up finding treatment for it. I don’t know if Midnight Blue cream can permanently desensitize that spot, but on the days when I used it I didn’t feel that itchy-stingy feeling like I normally do. Also, those moisturizing serums and ampoules that I drench my chin with in the hopes of making that area less noticeable under makeup seem to be finally showing results.
