Some time ago, I was contacted by Wishtrend to see if I would be willing to review their new “Moisture Rescue” kit, which was composed of several Klairs items–the Supple Preparation Facial Toner, Rich Moist Soothing Serum, Rich Moist Soothing Cream, and the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask.
After jumping up and down for about five minutes (this was the first time I’ve been approached to review a product!), I immediately replied with a resounding yes. I’ve spent the last few months testing the products to give a more comprehensive review. Wishtrend sent me the set for my honest review, and I did not receive any compensation outside of the set.
Another view of all the items sans mask.
My thoughts on the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner: decent bottle, product is gooey with little to no scent. See my pictures below:
Toner once rubbed in:
Impressions of toner: it is indeed nice and hydrating and does not leave a sticky residue. It’s decent for the price, and those sensitive to fragrance will appreciate that it is pretty unscented. It’s not going to steal me away from my absolute favorite SU:M37 waterfull skin refresher, which smells divine and is super hydrating, but is a more than decent cheaper substitute.
Next up: the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum
Like the toner, the serum is colorless and odorless, and a smidgen thicker:
Once it’s been rubbed in:
Overall impressions of serum: similar to the toner. Does what it does well, unpretentious, strikes me as a good workhorse product.
Next: the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream
Again: a generic, but pleasantly thick white cream that dissolves easily.
It does a decent job hydrating, but my skin still needed more moisture than it could provide (granted, my skin is outrageously dry in wintertime.)
And finally: the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask
This is perhaps my favorite product of the set. It’s extremely calming and hydrating, and I often use it whenever I’ve irritated my skin one way or another. I purchased a set of these before, and will definitely repurchase them again.
Overall thoughts on set: The Klairs Moisture Rescue Set is decent. It’s a good value for its price, and unpretentious. It worked best for me when I tried it while traveling to Vancouver, BC in early January; however, upon returning to the Northeastern US where I live, my skin needed way more moisture than this set could provide. I also have extremely crazy-dry skin though, so Your Mileage May Vary–I have the suspicion that it would provide more than enough moisture for people with regular dry skin.
I can’t find the set any longer on the Wishtrend site, but Wishbox No. 17 contains everything in the set plus a scrub and blemish cream for $62.12–a really good value if you consider the price of each product individually. You get $5 off on any order if you sign up on Wishtrend and enter my code 193336110. (Also, note that if you purchase anything on the “free shipping” zone of the site, your entire order will ship for free.)
Would I recommend this set? Yes, I would recommend it as a good starter set for someone just starting out with Korean beauty. It’s a versatile set that seems very calming and nourishing for most types of skin, with a minimal chance of a negative reaction (my skin is very sensitive, and I did not break out at any point trying these products. Admittedly I haven’t run the ingredient lists through COSDNA though). It reminds me of the Clinique Moisture Surge line–simple and unpretentious, and not too expensive. For those after more bells and whistles though, I’d recommend something else. It’s a good staple, but won’t rock the worlds of any veterans anytime soon.
