Dear, Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen Review

Dear, Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen Review

This time I’m going to review the Dear, Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen, a moisturising sunscreen with SPF 50+ PA++++. This sunscreen claims to offer strong UV ray protection and a lightweight texture that does not leave any white cast or sticky residue on the skin. Is this product worth a shot? I’ll share my experience below.

Dear, Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen

Dear Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen uses new generation filters: diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate (also known as Uvinul A Plus, which protects the skin against UVA rays), polysilicone-15 (also known as Parsol SLX, which helps protect the skin against UVB rays), bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine (also known as Tinosorb S, which covers the whole UVB and UVA range), and ethylhexyl triazone (also known as Uvinul T 150, which protects the skin against UVB rays).

The formula is also enriched with a blend of skin-conditioning ingredients, including David elm extract, laminaria japonica extract, black mulberry extract, Peruvian maca extract, aloe leaf extract, and purslane extract. It also contains a mix of antioxidants like Manchurian violet extract, barberry extract, Strawberry extract, goji berry extract, and Japanese yam extract. Additionally, a blend of adenosine, allantoin, panthenol, and dipotassium glycyrrhizate helps with skin barrier protection, soothes the skin, and softens the skin.

Dear Klairs Sunscreen

This sunscreen has a lightweight, watery cream texture that spreads easily onto the skin and leaves no white cast. After the application, it gives the skin a shiny look on my combination skin. It doesn’t break me out or irritate my skin.

I find the Dear, Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen to be very moisturising. In fact, it is too dewy for my skin, so I can even skip using my moisturiser before applying it. I think it may be better suited for those with dry or very dry skin, but for me, it’s too much. I’m not saying it’s a bad product, but it feels heavier on my skin than I prefer.

Dear Klairs Sunscreen review

This sunscreen tends to pill if you handle it too much, or it can also pill upon reapplication. There’s also a tendency for it to pill when layered on top of some creams.

Dear Klairs Sunscreen review

Initially, the sunscreen caused no irritation to my eyes when applied close to my eyelids. But as I started to sweat, it caused a bit of irritation. I don’t have this issue when I apply it further away from my eyelids.

The Dear, Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen doesn’t have an overbearing sunscreen smell or any other distinct scent. It is free from artificial fragrances, or essential oils. I barely notice a subtle chemical scent that quickly fades away after application.

Dear Klairs Airy Sunscreen

All in all, even though Dear, Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen didn’t become my favorite sunscreen, I find it to be a nice product. Speaking about the sun protection factor, it’s worth noting that back in 2020, there were several sunscreen scandals when some brands, including Dear, Klairs, were tested and did not meet their labeled SPF and PA values. However, in 2021, Dear, Klairs removed their old products from the shelves and launched new ones in 2022 that have been fully tested and verified by at least three institutions. I haven’t tried the old version of this sunscreen, so I cannot compare, but the current SPF Index has been tested and verified by the Korea Dermatology Research Institute, Global Cosmeceutical Center by Semyung University, and Cosmeservice.
