Sunscreens or Sunblocks or Sun Cream, whatever you call them, is the must have product in your skincare Routine! Why? Because if you don’t protect your skin during the day, then all the labour and patience you took to improve your skin during night time, goes down to drain! 😯 Using Sunscreen become more important even indoor, if you use any kind of AHA, BHA, PHA Vit-C Serum, Retinol, etc in your night time Routine, because you will be only causing more damage to your skin by avoiding the Sunscreen! Infact sunscreen are to be used all around the year whether outdoor or Not! Please make it a habit!! 😤 Sunscreen are either Mineral Based (Which often leave bad white Cast, but good option for sensitive skin) or Chemical Filters based (Which can do not leave white cast but are considered irritating for sensitive skin and Acne Prone Skin). Today in my Post I have come up with “Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion” which is a Hybrid kind of Sunscreen, but leaning more towards Mineral Based Sunscreen.
So, Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion provides perfect protection from both UVA (PA++) and UVB (SPF40) rays with very little to zero white cast. This is a perfect option for sensitive skin and, also this is Vegan!!
Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion is curated particularly for sensitive Skin type. So, anyone can use this. But! People with Dry skin have to use a moisturizer before this during Dry Summer Season, and Might not be suitable for Winters Specially for Dry skin to Combination Skin Type!
This should be a perfect Choice for Acne Prone Skin, as it is very light and smooth, and non-greasy!
Just like Every Korean Skincare Product, Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion provide additional benefit apart from regular Sun Protection.
- Provides Sun Protection (Have to mention this), though not a good option for Swimming Pool and Extensive Outdoor sports activity!
- Provides Skin Brightening (Niacinamide).
- Anti-Aging Benefit (Arginine, Adenosine, Gingsang Extract, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8.)
- Anti-Inflammatory and soothing effect ( Guaiazulene, Centella Asiatica, Panthenol).
- Moisturize and Hydrate (Sodium Hyaluronate, Lactobacillus Ferment).
- Works well as a Primer for Makeup
Not Suitable for:
People Allergic to any of the Ingredients. Dry skin people might find it difficult to blend without Moisturizer during dry season.

Yeah! This is my Morning Skincare Routine! Yes in the morning I use “Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Water” instead of Foaming Cleanser, as this is the most gentle Cleansing Water, (Way too gentle to work on stubborn point Makeup!! 😛 …. Anyways I will write more about this in my future Post!! 🤐)

Though Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion is named as lotion, it has a consistency just like any regular cream. It has a smooth texture, which glides on skin very easily, does not crumble like other sunscreen, is non-greasy and very light! It has a very beautiful light blue colour, which comes from addition of Guaiazulene, extracted from chamomile Oil. Don’t worry you won’t look like an Avatar! 😱 It has very little to zero white cast.
It can leave mild white cast if used in excess on dry and tanned skin! Otherwise, it’s not a problem for other skin type of any colour! 😎
Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion has a fragrance just like other klairs Product, a very fresh and slightly floral one. It’s not at all strong and nowhere smells like regular sunscreen!
Klairs Mid-Day BlueSun Lotion gets absorbed, to be exacts sets on skin quickly and easily! Still I would recommend to use only as required and do not go overboard, or else, it will take time to blend in! God save you if your skin is dry and Tan!! It will look patchy and white!!
Do I recommend it? Yes I do! It’s a perfect option for oily skin, sensitive skin, acne Prone Skin for throughout the year! For those with Combination and Dry skin its perfect for Humid Summer and Monsoon.
Will I repurchase? Yes! This is my sunscreen for Humid Summer and Monsoon. For winter and dry summer, I like to use Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun cream.
Klairs Mid-Day BlueSun Lotion is a Perfect Sunscreen! It is unlike any other sunscreen (in my knowledge) that are available in Indian Market. Below is my Conclusion on the basis of using it for 2 months in Hot Humid Monsoon:
- Provides Sun Protection: Yes! SPF 40 PA++ (This is good).
- Provides Skin Brightening: Temporarily Yes, Long Terms- Not Sure!
- Anti-Aging Benefit: Maybe a little! In 2 months what will I notice?
- Anti-Inflammatory and soothing effect: Yes I agree Totally!
- Moisturize and Hydrate: Sufficient for Humid Condition for my dry skin!
- Works well as a Primer for Makeup! Oh yes!
I would have given Klairs Mid-Day BlueSun Lotion full rating! But I wish this had more moisturizing or absolute zero white cast on any skin type and colour! I know I am expecting a lot!
Klairs do listen to their customers request, as they have already improved the texture and moisture level from their older version but still there is always a scope! I must say, this is a must try product from klairs!
