Avoid Cakey Makeup With Dear Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish

Dear Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish
Bought for: P750 | SRP: USD $23 (Around P1200)
Bought from: an online shop

I've had this obsession with scrubs ever since and shouldn't it advertised to be used only at least once or a couple of times every week, I could have given in to the pleasure of scrubbing away dead skin cells on a daily basis. The beads feels so refreshing and smoothing that I can't help noticing how skin's overall texture improves every after use. And with that saying, I have here a tub of goodness which I'm going to talk about today, Dear Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish.

This is the very first product I have tried from Klairs and it made me look forward to trying out more of their products. This didn't exactly give me that perfectly polished skin as assumed because of the name, but I just love how my skin feels super soft, hydrated and clear every time I use this. It makes everything I put on gets absorb easily.

We know for a fact that this sugar polish used to come in a tub with only 60g of product inside and was renewed early 2017. You don't have to use a lot every application but for a product with quite an expensive price tag for budget beauties, it would be nicer to pay for a bit of quantity too. It seems like Klairs heard us after all!

The texture and quality of the scrub made me reminiscent about my D-I-Y sugar scrub--I might do a step-by-step procedure with it and share that with you. I remember using black sugar mixed with some oils and honey for my scrub and it doubles its function as a mask too. The resulting product is quite creamy and the hydration properties of natural oils and fresh honey is really powerful. However, I don't have the whole time in the world, so convenience means a lot. Good thing, I've got this Dear Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish for that fuss-free exfoliation whenever I need it.

The Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish contains an abundance of black sugar which aids in the removal of dead skin cells and blackheads. It exfoliates dry skin with ease and adds a glossy smooth look to the skin. When seasons change, the skin tends to become a uneven with dry patches that cause makeup to apply unevenly and look “cakey”. Using the Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish once a week gives you smooth soft skin perfect for makeup application. 
See even better results by using the Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish with the Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil. 
Klairs keeps your skin soft and supple by providing effective exfoliation with deep moisturizing. Its anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties help treat dry, flaky skin.


Dear Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish comes in a dark-colored plastic tub with a twist cap, an inner seal and a plastic spatula for hygienic purposes. I love it for it looks very high-end too. The tub and the accompanying box displays all necessary information such as directions, claims and benefits, ingredients and expiry dates. For an eco and vegan-friendly, natural product, it has an amazing shelf life of 3 years.

Texture, Consistency and Ease of Application

The product is dark brown in color--something you expect with sugar scrubs. It has an abundance of black sugar with a combination of emollients that doesn't feel harsh at all and melt on the skin a few seconds after application. The thing with scrubs containing synthetic beads is that they don't melt so we sometimes tend to over-scrub and we know that it's pretty dangerous for the skin as it can cause further damage. Well, too much of something for any aspect isn't good, right?

I love everything about this product's texture--it melts like soft butter on the skin and the melted product seem to double like mask. I usually don't rinse the product yet because I find that the oils it contains hydrate my skin and make it super silky, soft and smooth.

The product has a wee bit of a cooling scent. The scent is not something I really love but it's subtle enough that I don't think those who are sensitive  to scents will find it off-putting in any way.


I really love this product as it lives up to its promises. The buttery texture removes tough makeups further and all other imperfections such as flaky skin and roughness. After use, your skin really looks clearer and smoother--you  have to fight the urge to touch your skin frequently. It doesn't remove existing blackheads but it helps smoothen out their appearance and prevent further damages on the skin. It is very clear that this product removes dead skin cells effectively as my skin seem to drank straight whatever I put on it.

This product is very mild and non-abrasive so it suits every skin type whether you have dry, combination, oily or sensitive skin. It might be a high maintenance product for me but I don't mind splurging a bit as it made it to my holy grail scrubs!
