Hello Beautiful Ladies,
In the past few months, I have been investing in anti-ageing and skin protection products. I guess listening to your professor talk about ageing problems makes you want to be well protected. The product I will be reviewing today is the Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum with SPF 50. This new and improved UV PLUS SPF 50 formula has replaced the discontinued SPF 40 version, along with a few changes in the formula. Not only does this have an increased SPF, it also has some great active ingredients that protect your skin from pollution. This one is even more popular than its predecessor.
Formulated with Clarins’ exclusive Anti-Pollution Complex—this lightweight, oil-free day screen shields skin from UVA/UVB rays, pollution, and free radical damage. Forms an invisible shield that protects skin from the appearance of dark spots and future aging. Perfect daily defense for younger-looking skin.
- Clarins’ exclusive organic Sanicle extract, harvested from the Alps, helps strengthen the skin’s line of free radical defense.
- Cantaloupe Melon extract, rich in antioxidants, helps protect cells from oxidative stress caused by UVA/UVB rays and pollution.
- Organic Blackcurrant extract helps prevent the appearance of redness and tightness caused by pollution and UVA/UVB rays.
- Clarins’ exclusive Anti-Pollution Complex helps screen out harsh environmental influences that contribute to premature signs of aging.
$42 for 30 ml.
My Experience with Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Ecran Multi-Protection SPF 50 Sunscreen:
As I’ve mentioned earlier, while trying new face products I’m always worried about breaking out. So I’m really picky when I buy products for my face. Clarins has a great reputation for creating effective and safe products. Hence, this sunscreen. This is the very first sunscreen I purchased for my face. Tried on a whole lot of them earlier, but I wasn’t ever happy with the texture. Also, I always relied on my moisturizers for SPF protection. It’s only now that I worry about the extra protection.
I’m usually the person who refrains from using sunscreen because I hate how it feels on the skin. I hate sunscreens that feel heavy and form white casts that show up in pictures. No such worries with the Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Sunscreen. The product is a white, light weight, matte fluid and is suitable for all skin types.
The texture of the sunscreen is really thin and lightweight. It spreads easily on the face and also dries quickly. Once applied, there is no white cast to be seen on the face even though the product is white. This product dries super quickly, turns invisible on the skin and doesn’t get oily after a few hours. Such a great all rounder.
I cannot not mention the packaging in this post. Packaging is so important to me. Sometimes I base my purchases only on packaging. On the outside, the bottle is simple; classic white and red Clarins. What I love about it is that the outlet is pressure controlled, so there is no leak of excess product. When you squeeze the bottle, only a tiny drop comes out. Also to be remembered is that the bottle needs to be shaken well before use.
A lot of people are often concerned about spending on products that come in small packages. Priced at 42 dollars, the Clarins UV Plus is not cheap. However, I can say that a tiny drop covers your entire face. You could use the 30 ml bottle for about three months. I’d say that’s sufficient.
Pros of Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Ecran Multi-Protection SPF 50 Sunscreen:
- Lightweight formula.
- Great packaging.
- Anti-pollution properties.
- Suitable for all skin types.
Cons of Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Ecran Multi-Protection SPF 50 Sunscreen:
- Only 30 ml of product provided.
Would I Recommend Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Ecran Multi-Protection SPF 50 Sunscreen?
Yes, most definitely. This is such a great sunscreen suitable for all types of skin. I call it an investment.
