REVIEW | Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream

I discovered this cream when I was browsing for a moisturizer that would help me soothe down my easily-irritated skin. My moisturizer at the time was not bad but they didn’t do a great job on reducing redness. On another note, I was watching Liah Yoo’s Youtube video where she talked about her top favorites from Klairs I think? Or was it her recommendation from Klairs ahahaa.

So anyway, she mentioned that this cream is amazing at calming and soothing irritated skin so I decided to get it during a sale! 


A gentle spot treatment cream that provides comfort to rapidly calm & soothe sensitivity. Powered by nature, its star ingredients are Guaiazulene, a natural component extracted from chamomile oil, which carries powerful skin calming abilities, and Centella Asiatica, which helps hydrate and relieve redness.

  • GUAIAZULENE is a herbal ingredient extracted from chamomile that is effective in calming inflammation of damaged skin tissue as well as regenerating new skin cells. In Japanese clinical trials, Guaiazulene demonstrated positive effects in sunburns, eczema, and ulcerative skin disease. It is often used as the main raw ingredient in burn ointments.
  • CENTELLA ASIATICA EXTRACT is a plant native to Madagascar, it is also known as ‘tiger grass’ and is often used in cosmetics as ‘Centella Asiatica. It helps with the regeneration of new skin cells and prevents scarring. Centella Asiatica Extract is usually the primary ingredient in ointments.

Product Breakdown


Available in 30ml, 60ml.


Comes in a black opaque plastic tube, with a twist cap. Printed with white wording, have good amount of information and instruction.


Silky smooth lightweight cream. The cream is pastel blue in color but doesn’t leave any color residue on skin when applied. Easy to spread with no skin-tugging feels, instantly absorbed into the skin leaving a smooth finish.


Very minimal to no cent was detected. (I’m pretty sure my nose is not broken but I don’t smell anything LOL)

  • Recommended for

Those with oily, acne-prone and sensitive skin to soothe redness and calm sensitivity from sun exposure. Also for those in need of a spot treatment for irritated skin.

  • My skin type

Dehydrated-combination, oilier on nose and cheek area. Prone to redness and mild acne.


FYI, Klairs didn’t claimed this cream is an actual moisturizer but instead they recommend to use it as a spot treatment cream. Note that if you’re looking for a super moisturizing cream, this might not what you are looking for :(

On my combination skin, this cream feels light and airy when applied on skin. It does feels soothing and kind of cooling too. I would use this at the last step of my routine as moisturizer when on my exfoliating nights or as spot treat whenever my skin has red spots or blotches.

Guaiazulene and Centella Extract combination from this cream does an amazing job at relieving itchiness or tingling sensation using a chemical exfoliation or whenever I messed up my skin by using unsuitable products. Irritation is reduced significantly, redness and res spots caused by sensitized skin was calmed and practically gone the next morning.

Formulated with no essential oils added, makes me list this cream in my no-fuss-ingredient product list. I would highly recommend this for sensitive, easily-compromised skin. Although the price is a bit steep, I’d happily spend my money on products that give fast results within the safe zone haha!

Though I bought this blue cream during a sale, I’m here to save you from wasting time on long queue AND website lags because of the connection congestion.  Get this cream easily through HERMO or just add it in your wishlist and buy it cheaper during one of frequent sales at HERMO’s all year round! :D

  • Reminder

There is a clinical report that Guaiazulene may turn into a toxic chemical when exposed to high temperature and sunlight. Although the chance of that happening is very low in real life, let’s be aware. To be safe, I’d prefer to use it at night time. 



P/s: This product is bought with my own money. All opinions and thoughts are based by my experience and solely mine.
