Skin – the body’s largest and fastest growing organ. With modern day technologies resulting in air pollution and natural factors, like the sun that are harming our skin constantly, taking care of the skin has become a crucial step in our everyday lives. For me, achieving almost flawless (because no one is 100% flawless) skin has now become my number 1 goal!

Miss-Rusty-Klair-Skincare-Review-Products-Overview

Thus, I’m always on the lookout for great skincare products that could help me with my goal. Klairs is a Seoul South Korean brand that aims to help people who has sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, you will know how annoying and frustrating it is to find products that will not react negatively on your skin. Although I’m lucky enough to not suffer from sensitive skin, I do have dry skin and could still benefit from Klairs’ choice of using safe and quality ingredients! In addition, it’s good to hear that they have opposed to take part in any animal testing since 2009.

KLAIRS RICH MOIST FOAMING CLEANSER (100ML: USD16.99)

A hypoallergenic face wash, Klairs’ Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser uses a low irritant Amino Acid cleansing formula (the main component of Protein) instead of the usual chemical detergent (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate SLS). This enables skin to be moisturized while pores are cleansed thoroughly. Other ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid, Cermide 3 & Olive Oil for maximum hydration and Tea Tree Oil & Houttuynia Cordata extract to treat skin troubles.

This is the kind of cleanser that doesn’t leave your skin feeling squeeky clean which is good news. That means that skin is not over cleansed and is still moisturized. After cleansing, I feel that my skin is soft and cleansed without feeling an uncomfortable tightness.

KLAIRS PORE GENTLE BLACK SUGAR CHARCOAL SOAP (120G; USD12.90)

Block soaps may not be the most convenient so I recommend getting a soap container to store it. Klairs’ Pore Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal soap is suitable for oil skin and helps to minimize sebum production. Artificial ingredients, such as surfactants, hardener, preservatives or fragrance are not used either, which is great news!

Miss-Rusty-Klair-Skincare-Review-Pore-Gentle-black-Sugar-Charcoal-Soap

I’m not a huge fan of block soaps. And since Klairs’ block soap is more suited for oily skin, it’s a little drying for me since I have dry skin. But nothing a good serum and moisturizer couldn’t help! I would think that it would work perfectly for oily skin types.

KLAIRS SUPPLE PREPARATIION FACIAL TONER (150ML; USD21.99)

A toner is a crucial step in any skincare routine as it helps to remove the excess dirt and debris that is missed out by your previous cleansing step. If these excess bad stuff are not removed, it would affect the absorption of your serums and moisturizers. Toners also help to close up pores so the skin would be less prone to any irritations.

Main ingredients include Phyto-Oligo, which helps moisture spread evenly throughout and hydrate every part of the skin and Amino Acid, which are anti-inflammatory.

Miss-Rusty-Klair-Skincare-Review-Supple-Preparation-Facial-Toner-Cap

Just like any other toners, Klairs is a liquidy formula that is gentle to the skin. But unlike other toners in the market, this has no alcohol in it. Alcohol is the main irritant to sensitive skin, so a water based toner is created by Klairs to cater for such a market. I have to say that this is one of the most gentle toners I have ever used. I’m also loving the fact that I do not have to smell the strong alcohol scent which has always put me off.

KLAIRS RICH MOIST SOOTHING SERUM (50ML; USD22.99)

I’ve heard people say that serums are the supplement to your skin, the magic potion, the bottle jam-packed with nutrients that your skin will be thankful for. Serums are the treatments and depending on what you are trying to treat, you would require different serums. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum claims to help with hydration.

Miss-Rusty-Klair-Skincare-Review-Rich-Moist-Soothing-Serum

Helps with:
- Sensitive skin that needs calming.
– Dry, dehydrated skin that needs long-lasting moisture.
– Smoothing and reducing redness and irritation.
– Constant flaking and peeling of skin.
– Smoothing out fine, dehydrated lines.
– Preventing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Miss-Rusty-Klair-Skincare-Review-Rich-Moist-Soothing-Serum-Benefits

I have dry skin so this product is just perfect for me. It is easy to spread and only a little bit is needed to cover my whole face. However, it is a tad sticky. On the flip side, the stickiness only last for a while and will be gone soon enough. After application, my skin felt adequately hydrated and comfortable.

I think that it’s rather tough to find brands that cater to sensitive skin that uses safe and quality ingredients. So it’s definitely worth a shot to try out their products! For more information about Klairs or all things Korea, check out

BIORE MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER (S$18.90; 300ML)

I’ve always been a fan of Biore’s makeup removers and this one is a level-up version. Introducing their new Micellar Cleansing Water, it is said to be able to remove even stubborn makeup while being extremely gentle. What’s greater news is that it’s a no-rinse formulation! Do I hear huge YES-ES from you? :p I can’t wait to try it out. And if I’m getting the full sized bottle, I’ll still keep this mini one to refill for overseas trips. That’s a tip right there!

ELIZABETH MOTT IT’S SO BIG VOLUMIZING MASCARA (S$26.90; 10ML)

More of a volumizing mascara, Elizabeth Mott’s version is said to not smudge at all. With an hourglass shaped brush that has long and short bristle pattern, it claims to ensure that just the right amount of product will be distributed to each lash. I’ve tried it out for 2 days and so far, so good!

INGLOT COSMETICS FREEDOM SYSTEM RAINBOW EYESHADOW (S$15; 2.5G)

Ah, INGLOT COSMETICS. A fairly new brand to the local market and quickly rose up to be one of my all time favourite brand. I’ve dedicated a post to it here where you can check out my first haul at the store. In this month’s box, I’ve received a FULL SIZED Freedom System Rainbow Eyeshadow in Pink shades which is just perfect!

MANE ‘N TAIL DEEP MOISTURIZING SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER (S$14.90; 355ML)

I’ve heard nothing but raves for Mane ‘N’ Tail and can’t wait to see what the hype is all about. They are designed specifically for dry and damaged hair and is packed with protein-enriched formulas to redefine and revitalize for long, shiny, healthy-looking mane. As long as it cleanses my hair, leaving it soft and smooth, then I’m sold!

MAUBOUSSIN LOVELY A LA FOLIE EAU DE PARFUM (S$129; 100ML)

Not usually a fan of such fragrance samples because it’s so inconvenient to use. But the scent of this Mauboussin fragrance is rather lovely. It’s considered a water citrus fruit scent that combines the freshness of Calabrian lemon and white rose on a bed of white musk and crisp apples. Hard to imagine? Go sniff the real thing!

MIACARE ACNE PATCH FOR DAY (S$4.50; 12 PCS)

I’ve never used acne patches before and it’s really interesting to try them out. At only just 0.015mm thick (or rather thin), it is made with hydrocolloid, a medical grade material that is used in surgical bandages to assist in healing. While camouflaging flaws with its translucent design, it also helps prevents infections and draws out pus to facilitate healing. Saving these for those acne emergencies!

POND’S AGE MIRACLE™ FIRM AND LIFT DAY CREAM SPF 30 (S$39.90; 50ML)

A cream! Pond’s is a brand many would recognize. Containing Pro-Cell Complex, this firming and lifting cream is also enriched with potent ingredients to firm sagging skin around the jaw line. I have to say, that the mini tub is also perfect for travelling so don’t throw is away even when you’re done with the cream!

Miss-Rusty-Illamasqua-Facets-Collection

Illamaqua has finally reached Singapore and their first counter opened at Robinsons Orchard. Facets collection is their holiday 2014 collection and have been released. However, I thought I would still share it with you! :)

Facets portrays many sides, like you. We are not one thing, never one mood , we are forever changing. The word facet stems from early 17th century French ‘facette’ used to describe the many faces and sides encapsulated by the breadth of looks and feeling you can achieve from a palette of possibilities.
