Back in July, I did Sunscreen Week and reviewed 7 sunscreens. Instead of waiting until I have 7 sunscreens, I thought if I did have one to review, I’ll just review it on Sunday! To kick off this new Sunscreen Sunday Series, I will be starting with Klairs’ new Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ *.
If you’re curious about Sunscreen Week, here are the reviews! They all follow the same review format. If there’s something I’m missing in these sunscreen reviews, please let me know!

“The Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA++++ is an everyday sun protector for sensitive skin. As is it water-based, it holds a gel-type texture to give a soft weightless and light finish. Also with its high SPF and PA level, it completely guards the skin against UVA, UVB without leaving any greasiness or white cast. The Klairs Freshly Juiced Line is to brighten dull skin with the effect of the vitamin for sensitive skin. Apply Soft Aivy UV Essence after using this line to shield your skin from UV lights and enhance vitamin effects.”
Price: $23 USD / ~$30 CAD
Amount: 80 ml / 2.7 fl oz
Strength: SPF 50+ PA++++
Uvinul A Plus, Uvinul T 150
CONSISTENCY: Light cream.
APPLICATION: Spreads easily and actually feels airy. No stickyness or greasiness as you apply.
FINISH: Undetectable. It adds a slight moisturized look to the skin but nothing overly glowy.
STINGS EYES? No, but I prefer using a physical sunscreen around my eyes.
WATER RESISTANT? No.
Contains Niacinamide, Adenosine, Panthenol, Beta-Glucan, and Sea Buckthorn Oil. I find these ingredients do have purpose and contribute to my skin’s health aside from sun protection. This sunscreen doesn’t sting my face and my skin feels smoother.
It Cosmetics CC Cream glides on easily, and it doesn’t add or subtract anything about the finish.
Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ is a “cosmetically elegant” sunscreen. I’ve tried Klairs’ Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion in the past and while I liked it, the cast is very noticeable. They finally came out with a chemical sunscreen that doesn’t have a cast, doesn’t sting my face, and feels comfortable on the skin! I also find it a great value; 80ml / 2.7 fl oz for $24-30! I definitely recommend Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ if you’ve been eyeing it.
