Rated 4.94 out of 5 stars
My skin is generally oily, and I have enlarged pores, excess sebum, acne (blackheads and whiteheads), and skin that easily gets red. My skin is also very acne prone as well because most of the skin products I have used either instantly broke me out with pimples or cysts or were effective but eventually led to a noticeable increase of whiteheads, blackheads, and closed comedones that took a long time to go away. For most of my life, I had resigned myself to living without a skin care routine because it seemed like my skin would always be irritated by everything. Blindsided by my frustrations with acne and oily skin, it was not until I tried Klairs Supple Preparation Toner that I started to consider the possibility of also having sensitive skin! I had finally found a toner that soothed the redness in my skin, kept it moisturized without being too oily, and didn't irritate my skin at all! It's been a few months, the longest I've ever used a skin care product without any issues, and my skin is definitely not as red as it used to be and I haven't even developed any new non-hormone related acne, like I normally would have by now. As for why I would love to try this product, despite my great success with the toner, I am still on a quest to find a moisturizer that effectively rehydrates and balances my oily skin without the drawbacks that I have experienced with all moisturizers thus far, namely the irritation and increased blackheads and closed comedones. Some of Klairs' other products, like the Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap and the Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil, have also been very effective and non-irritating on my skin, so, given this good track record with Klairs products, I am really hoping that this could become a holy grail item for me like the other products have!
Did not see any calming effect, or anything other immediate skin benefit. Every time I used it in the morning, it pilled and I had to wash my face and start over with the morning routine. I will use it up at night, but will not be repurchasing.

I love this cream! I have extrmeely dry skin that has overall redness. Ive always used various types of moisturizers that are thick and slather them on to help my skin problems. But i end up rarely writing reviews because they are all just average. But ever since i started using this before bed, ive woken up with such calmer and less red skin and this is the only thing ive changed in my routine.

It's unnecessary to buy… It did not calm ANY redness on my skin.. It's the lightest cream that does not moisturize at all if you're expecting it to do that. It only looks nice lol

Holy grail product! Ive been using this for over a year and nothing else compares. I have rosacea and this helps to calm the redness and dryness instantly. The formula is perfect! It's not greasy or sticky and does not burn my face.

I absolutely love this! It's the only cream that works for me. I use it every night and sometimes during the day. It calms and moisturizes my combo, sensitive, mild rosacea skin without making it greasy! Ulta, please never stop selling this and please consider making it available in the stores.

A product that looks and feels exactly like the name and description! It's lightweight and has a mild fragrance to it which I don't mind, I actually kinda like it. Did not break me out, was quickly absorbed by my skin! The 60 ML tube is a great amount of cream for the price!
The cream gently moisturizes and softens the epidermis without causing redness or irritation. Helps to get rid of dryness and tightness.
This is one of the prettiest and most effective soothing creams out there. I love it because of the texture, really creamy without any greasiness. It glides on like butter and instantly calms down skin. It's not too thick nor too watery, just the right amount of moisturization without feeling stuffy. It has an herbal scent which I really enjoy. Every time I have new breakouts of inflamed acne, I know this cream will help calm down everything. All products from the Klairs Midnight Blue line including the sheet masks and the serum have been staples in my routine. Although it is suitable for all skin types but if you have oily / combo skin and you're looking for a moisturizer that will help repair damaged skin barrier, this is the one.

I'm having electrolysis done on my face. It has caused bumps and irritation that have resulted in red marks that I though could end up scaring (I planned to do IPL to get rid of it later). I read a bunch of reviews about creams for irritation, and this one seemed to make most of the lists, so I gave it a try. I am amazed by the results—3 days later (with an electrolysis treatment on day 2), and my face looks completely healed. No irritation, no bumps, even the areas I thought could potentially scar look healed. This stuff is truly amazing!
This Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream is the perfect solution for after sun care! It's suitable for sensitive skin, is gentle, moisturizing, and effective at soothing irritated skin! I don't often get sunburn, but when I do, it's brutal! This product was quick to soothe my skin, and offered much relief ! I am definitely impressed with how light, fast absorbing, & Calming this cream is!
This cream is one of my favourites for calming and soothing. Not overly heavy on my oily skin. I know it's supposed to be a spot treatment but I do use all over my face as a night moisturizer when my face is over red. Love the results! Always a repurchase for me
The Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream is a fail-safe must have in my collection. I've already gone through 2 jars of this and will repurchase the larger size tube next. It works wonders for soothing my skin whilst also keeping it adequately moisturised without ever feeling heavy on my skin. I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts and this has never caused any irritation or new pimples to form. The light blue colour cream in the black container is also so aesthetically pleasing to me which brings some extra joy when I reach for it. Packaging aside, the formula is where it is at, perfect for all skin types. I personally use it as an all over moisturiser as soothing creams are my favourite but you can also use it to target specific areas that need soothing and healing such as over breakouts or mild sunburn.

My 2 year old had an allergic reaction one night, her face turned red and her lips swelled. I put the cream on her cheeks in hopes of it calming her reaction. Not only did it work but i swear it took less than 45 seconds. I was truly amazed. Definitely get if you have sensitive skin and allergies.

I've been using this for a night cream for years for warmer months because I'm more acne prone in the summer and this helps with inflammation. When the weather cools down, I'll switch to the Rich Moist Soothing Cream that is also from Klairs. Great brand.

This stuff has instantly transformed in my skin. I'm 36 years old and I have easily clogged prone skin. My skin looks smooth, plump and hydrated without being oily. While yes, it is not technically a moisturizer but it is what I use it as. Do yourself a favor, go and buy this!
First the pretty blue, cream definitely deserves your attention! This blue gives me calming and healing vibe just looking at it. The first time when I used this cream, The next morning I woke up to smoother, more supple and calm skin. It has a slight cooling effect immediately when applied. It kind of creates a thin protective layer over the skin, but surprisingly doesn't leave any sticky or tacky residue. It works so fast to calm down your skin redness and temperature. Hasn't caused any blemishes, been using it for a few weeks now. This has become my new holy grail product when my skin needs extra love.
This calming cream is great for my acne oily skin. No matter the season, my skin reacts very well to this cream. During summer I use this at night to calm my skin from the heat and during winter I use it during the day to keep my skin moisturized trough the dry air
I started using this a couple of years ago and really loved it but stepped away from it in order to try out other products. I was on the hunt for another great PM moisturizer and I, like many skincare enthusiasts, thought there must be something even better out there..."all I have to do is keep buying stuff and I'll eventually find my holy grail!" Can you relate? ?? Since then I've tried many other PM moisturizers and, if I'm being honest, it took me coming back to this product to realize that THIS is what I need.

This is for if you have sunburn - thought I could use it for a moisturizer and redness and after reading the back of the bottle it's for if you've gotten a sunburn lol
This is a great moisturizer for a great price if you get it on sale. It's feels so soft and gentle on the skin. It's really soothing. It's not super moisturizing though if you have really dehydrated skin.
This cream saves my skin from most irritation and moisturizes nicely as well. The cantella asiatica and guaiazulene really calms my skins better than any other cream I've tried so far. On especially rough breakouts or irritations I will put a heavy layer of this on before slugging and it works wonders for my skin! This has become a staple in my return and will always need a backup on hand.

Preface: I have sensitive combo to dry skin and rosacea 1&2.
I originally bought this thinking it was a night time moisturizer. Used it that way for a few weeks and was disappointed because I kept waking up with my face and neck feeling super dry. THEN, I realized it was supposed to go over a moisturizer and tried that. Didn't see any point to this to be honest. However, I re-read the description and 💡then it dawned on me—this is a cream to relieve irritated skin. So, now every time I have a rosacea flush (daily in the evenings) I dab a small amount on my redness and it's almost instant relief. The heat in my cheeks disappears first then the redness calms down after that. I still usually have a teensy bit of redness from a flush but it's probably only noticeable to me.
Now that I understand what this cream is and how to properly use it I think it's a game changer for rosacea. It doesn't prevent flushes or flare ups but when a flush happens it drastically reduces the redness and heat.
4.75/5 would buy again but it's a nice extra, not a necessity
I use this moisturiser everyday and it is the perfect amount of hydration for my sensitive, acne prone skin. It is a light moisturiser, absorbs well and does not feel heavy or greasy on the skin. It is very calming, especially when I do have a breakout, as it does not 'feed' the inflammation. It works well with my other serums and acids and I have not had any pilling or strange consistencies when layering. I love this moisturiser and hope that you do too.
I am obsessed with this and I've been using it for a while now, it definitely reduces redness and irritations on my skin. It is very hydrating for my skin and has a thicker consistency compared to other creams which I love. It is definitely a staple in my routine. It is very calming on the skin and doesn't have much of a scent either.
This thick, blue tube of goodness has been a saviour for my skin. I suffer from rosacea and my skin is easily irritated. I use this as a spot treatment at night across my cheeks and anywhere else that is in need of calming and I wake up with a dramatic reduction in redness. Nothing else works this well. It has such a beautiful consistency and leaves my skin feeling silky, so much so that I have to resist the urge to constantly touch it.
If you have been thinking about getting this product this is your sign. It works great. I usually use it at night for any blemishes and dryness and it cures it the next day!
