If there’s one thing that Dear Klairs absolutely nails, it’s how they’ve mastered to create effortlessly reliable formulas. From their nourishing Supple Prep Facial Toner to their beginner-friendly Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum, the Korean cult fave has proven time and time again that their everyday skincare staples deserve a special place in our hearts (and daily routines).

So it goes without saying that the moment we heard an exciting new skincare line was released, we knew it was worth checking out. (And, of course, that we had to get our hands on them—stat!) Enter: the Dear Klairs Fundamental line.


Straight from the name, you can already tell this lineup is all about the basics. But don’t be fooled—this Fundamental duo is much more than your standard-issue go-to. In fact, the two new products—an ampule mist and watery drop serum—are innovative, multitasking essentials made to deliver the deep hydration your skin needs to keep it healthy and glowing around the clock.
It’s intriguing, to say the least. And while they might look simple, you can bet both will have the same 5-star quality as their usual stuff. We’re talking powerfully effective blends, clean ingredients lists, and incredible formulas that focus on concerns for all skin types.

But with that said, if we had to pick, say, who we’d recommend this for the most? We’d say these two would work wonders for people with oily skin. How so? Let’s dive in.


When it comes to oily skin, you want to make sure your skin is constantly hydrated. Otherwise, your skin compensates for that dryness by producing more oil—the kind that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. The good thing about this Fundamental Ampule Mist is that it takes care of your skin’s need for moisture in the most convenient way possible: through a mist.

Made with 82% Jeju green tea water, the Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water base is infused with cucumber, rice, okra, and kelp extracts that all work together to lock in moisture and ensure your skin is evenly and deeply hydrated skin for the long haul. Use it as a toner or spritz it throughout the day, either works! Let the antioxidant-rich formula and plant-based nutrients handle the rest. What’s more, you can comfortably soak up all that moisture 24/7 without the heavy, sticky feeling. Score!


Ask anyone with oily skin how they feel about facial oils, and you’ll probably see them shrinking away from the thought. Don’t worry, we get it—it’s a hard pass for some. And just imagining how greasy, and possibly sticky and uncomfortable it feels is enough to reject any possibility of applying it on your face.

But you know what? Facial oils are also a skincare must-have for their ability to deliver rich hydration and nourishment to both the inner and outer layer of the skin. (As opposed to moisturizers that only cover one or the other!) Though if you still can’t stand the idea, luckily there is a compromise—the Fundamental Watery Drop.
Infused with green tea, ferment extracts, ceramides, peptides, and sodium hyaluronate, this serum acts like a facial oil without the oiliness. It’s surprisingly lightweight, sinks easily into the skin, and will leave it feeling thoroughly quenched with merely 1-2 drops. Not only that, this one easy step treats your skin thanks to all the concentrated antioxidants in the formula and boosts cell turnover as an anti-aging solution. The end result? Skin that’s smoother, more supple, and super hydrated. Sounds like a win-win.

If you’re just as sold as we are, there’s only thing left to do—show you exactly how to use it. See the quick step-by-step guide, below!


Step 1. After cleansing, take the Ampule Mist and spritz 2-3 times on the whole face in place of your toner. Feel free to spray any time of the day to keep skin refreshed and moisturized.
Step 2. After toning, apply 2-3 drops of the Watery Oil Drop on to the face. Lightly massage and pat into the skin from the entire face down to the neck. Use as a serum in your routine.
