Today I wanted to review a new favourite of mine – the Rich Moist Soothing Cream by Klairs! I’ve been on the lookout for a new moisturiser, specially coming into the winter months, but was this one worth the price? Did it solve my dry-skin woes? Check out my review below!
What Is Rich Moist Soothing Cream?
Klairs’ Rich Moist Soothing Cream is a thick and creamy moisturiser. Currently, it’s the final step in my Korean skincare routine each night:
Step 1 – Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash by Wishtrend
Step 2 – Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner by Klairs
Step 3 – Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum by Klairs
And now finally, Step 4 – Rich Moist Soothing Cream by Klairs
You could definitely do this skincare routine during both the morning and night, but I’ve only been doing it at night. The products will last me twice as long!
Apparently this particular cream has been Klairs’ four year long best-seller and has been “renewed and improved to reflect the requests of our customers.” It’s definitely a fan-favourite and I can certainly see why!
What’s It Like?
This facial cream is very thick and creamy but is still able to be blended into the skin fairly easily. The package is cute and simple, like all of Klairs’ products. It’s easy to squeeze out of the tube and you only need a small amount to cover your whole face. Unfortunately, the tube is pretty small (only 60ml) so it does get used up quickly when used every day (or twice a day).
This cream does have a smell but it’s hard to place what it is. It’s not necessarily a chemical smell, thankfully! To me, it smells like aloe vera and smells very clean and bright.
Once applied, my skin feels tingly and fully hydrated. Even after just a few days use, my skin feels a lot more soft. Klairs states that the cream is “infused with yeast-derived beta glucan, it supports the skin’s natural moisture barrier and defense system.” Sounds good to me, right??
It also has some great reviews on both Amazon and Wishtrend so that’s a good sign.

What Does It Feel Like?
Like I mentioned, this facial moisturiser is very thick and creamy, giving it a great consistency. Even though it’s thick, it’s still easy enough to rub it into the skin easily and it absorbs quickly once it’s dried. However, it does take a few minutes to dry, so give it time!
I love how my skin feels tingly and hydrated once I’ve applied this facial cream! I tend to have combination skin and worry about finding a moisturiser that won’t make my face more oily than I already am, but will still be hydrating. This Rich and Moist Soothing Cream works wonders! It’s creamy but doesn’t leave me feeling greasy afterwards. It does take a few minutes to dry, but once it does, I can’t feel it anymore. Even though I do this routine before bed, my skin still feels soft and hydrated when I wake up.
Final Verdict on Rich Moist Soothing Cream by Klairs
I personally love this moisturiser. It’s creamy, smells wonderful and makes my skin feel hydrated and soft immediately. What’s not to love about that? So far, it’s been working great on my combination skin. It’s not too oily for my T-Zone but still very hydrating for the parts of my face that are habitually dry. I just wish it came in a larger bottle! I’ve already started in on a second bottle.
One thing I will also say is that while waiting for the second bottle to arrive, I had to switch back to my run-of-the-mill moisturiser in the meantime. Let me tell you: my skin felt like crap. It was tight and not nearly as moisturised as when using the Rich Moist Soothing Cream.
