Dear, Klairs - Rich Moist Soothing Serum


As you may remember, I love the Klairs Supple Preparation Toner. I’ve gone through 2 bottles so far, with a third in my stash, & as a result, I was incredibly curious about the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum. My skin leans towards sensitive và dry, so I’m always on the lookout for soothing, hydrating products.

My friends và I did an Asian beauty sản phẩm exchange for Christmas, & one of them was kind enough to lớn get it for me, (it was on my wish list). Given the absurdnumber of products I have, I wasn’t able to open it until a couple of weeks ago. I’ve used it long enough, now, that I feel comfortable giving a review.

Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum


Where khung meets function: practical, no-frills, và easy to lớn use.The serum is in a sturdy plastic bottle và is dispensed via a nice, easy-gliding pump. One pump is usually enough for my whole face. It comes with a small plastic cap lớn cover the pump. At 2.7 fl oz, it’s a generous amount for a serum.

The bolded ingredients may look familiar. That’s because they’re the same ones I highlighted in the review of the Klairs toner. In case you don’t want khổng lồ click over (laaaazy!), here’s the rundown on them again.

It is capable of holding up to lớn 1,000 times its own weight in water (!!!).Centella extract: Contains antioxidants and is soothing lớn the skin.Licorice Root extract: Has skin-soothing properties. It also may be effective in evening skin tone.It isideal forsensitive or red/irritated skin.Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract: Aloe extract, known for soothing irritated skin.Arginine: an amino acid with antioxidant properties.

I hate khổng lồ be redundant, but hey, I didn’t formulate these products. I’m just giving the facts.

The (Personal) Evidence

The Klairs serum is a clear, lightweight, gel-like serum that smells very herbally. Once again, the scent reminds me a lot of the Klairs toner.

Just slightly thicker than the toner.

It does take awhile khổng lồ fully absorb into my skin, though, despite the reformulation claims to lớn the contrary. This means I’ve relegated it to my nightly routine for the most part because I need time to lớn let it absorb. I get my light hydration in the morning from other products that absorb faster, lượt thích my Cosrx Snail 96 Perfect Amazing Essence, which I shall someday vị a nhận xét on. (I’ve been taking it for granted that you just know by now that I love snails, you should love snails, snails 4 eva!)

Klairs serum is formulated todo exactly as advertised, which is soothe & hydrate. It definitely does that. Upon applying it, there is definitely a pleasant cooling affect. I can see this being great for irritated skin, like from actives or sunburn. (Not that any of you would allow yourselves the horror of a sunburn!) It’s an ingredient menu that helped me to fall in love with the toner.

BUT. This is also exactly why the serum just isn’t doing it for me.


Look, I purposely stopped using the Klairs toner for a several weeks now, subbing in this serum to lớn see how it performed & if the two products were somewhat interchangeable.

They’re not.

I can layer in the toner for a good 5 or 6 layers và it isn’t until the last few that they take a bit to absorb, understandably so. The serum, however, can’t really be layered in that way, & one application doesn’t provide as much soothing hydration as several layers of toner.

I have a number of products (essences and toners) in my routine that soothe and many that hydrate. If I want to add in a serum, I expect that it will have a specific function, such as brightening or reducing redness.While this serum soothes & hydrates, I haven’t seen it help reduce redness at all.

I can also use the toner as a “carrier” of products if need be, such as my beloved Stratia Rewind, which is great but not easy khổng lồ spread around on my skin. Adding it lớn the toner makes it easier. I have tried khổng lồ use the serum as a carrier, và it’s just thick enough to lớn be awkward when I try lớn drop other products into it.

If I’m being honest, because I have so many other hydrating productsin my routine, I don’t really notice a difference between when I use this & when I don’t. That, however, probably says more about my routine and how I’ve chosenthe products I usethan it does about the Klairs serum specifically.

To be clear, this is in no way a bad product. It’s just that I can get the same results from the toner, which absorbs faster & is more flexible with how it can be used.

Overall, I think that if you have sensitive skin và have a difficult time finding products that work for you, this serum would be a great way to địa chỉ hydration & soothing extracts into your routine. I have not met many people for whom the Klairs products disagree with their skin.

So, will I buy this product again?

Rating Scale:

Did you not read the review? Yes, of course. I willspend all of my money on this product!

Yes. I enjoy this hàng hóa enough khổng lồ purchase again in the future, especially if it’s on sale.

Meh. Maybe. I mean, I bet there are other, better things out there. I’d use it if someone gave it to lớn me.

No. I won’t use this again & will probably bad-mouth it lớn others.

Hahahahaha. Nope. Noooooooope. Not even if you paid me.

The Verdict:Meh. Maybe. I mean, I bet there are other, better things out there. I’d use it if someone gave it lớn me.

I’ll continue using up this bottle, & I think it will be excellent for the summer. I may even put it in the fridge this summer for extra cooling. Sometimes Mr. Sir forgets lớn wear sunscreen (I KNOW), và I think it would be perfect for him to lớn use after he’s been out in the sun as well.

It’s been some time since I did a reviews on dear, Klairs; one of my favorite K-Beauty brands. The Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum is an empty that I used last year and I’ve purchased it twice so far. Already an indication that I really like it, but keep reading for the details.I have oily skin which is prone khổng lồ dehydration, that’s why I’m always looking for hydrating skincare. Hydrating my skin helps a lot with balancing oil production, so I don’t look greasy throughout the day. I read that this serum is very similar lớn Klairs toner. Therefore, I thought to give this a try instead of repurchasing the toner.

Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum – What is it?

This is a hydrating Serum from the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing line & its purpose it to deeply moisturize và soothe the skin. It says it contains a rich blend of organic complexes và a patented ingredient Phyto-Oligo* that has been specifically formulated khổng lồ provide moisture. It comes in a 80ml plastic bottle with a pump. The pump works great và you’ll be able to get out every last bit of the product. It also has a clear plastic cap to lớn cover the pump when you travel so it doesn’t get pushed down.


You’re supposed khổng lồ apply serum after your toner or light essences/ampoules. For me, I didn’t feel the need to lớn apply a separate hydrating toner when using this, because they practically vì chưng the same thing – hydrate. If you use an essence or ampoule khổng lồ target a particular skin concern, you can use them before the serum. This replaced my Supple Preparation toner during winter time. You can definitely build it up if one layer is not enough. Two layers were the perfect amount for me. & 1-2 pumps can cover the whole face.

Final Verdict

Hydrating.Soothing và has a cooling effect.Leaves the skin soft & supple.Takes care of dry patches, flaky skin.Works great under makeup & sunscreen.Suitable for all skin types (except for those sensitive to lớn EO).Didn’t break me out.Cruelty-free & Vegan.
I mentioned in the beginning that I’ve purchased this serum twice, so I really like it! It’s very hydrating, made my skin soft and plump. Similar lớn the Supple Preparation toner in terms of hydration, but you’ll need fewer layers. It lives up lớn its claims for providing hydration and being soothing, but I know that some expect their serum to vị more than that. I’m personally 70% focused on hydration in my skincare và this comes in 80ml, which is great for a serum & I wouldn’t call it overpriced. Suitable for my acne prone skin, because it didn’t break me out. I highly recommend it!
