Get excited, a new facial sun protectant has launched that will make you look at what sunscreens actually do for you other than protect against the sun. The Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution SPF 50 Day Cream has some great reasons to get on board with the mineral formulas!
Not only does it protect against the harmful rays but also free radicals and pollutants – all of the environmental aggressors.
- SPF 50
- Translucent formula
- Lightweight texture
- Protects against free radicals
If you have a darker complexion and find these broad spectrum SPF’s leave your face with a white or purple cast, fear not. It’s translucent formula mean the pigments don’t change the shade of your skin tone and the super light oil-free lotion feels weightless on the skin. Another benefit from this is that it won’t clog pores and cause blemishes which many sunscreens can do. It’s not greasy in the slightest and sinks in quickly so make can be applied immediately, just bare in mind if you have this on and take pictures with flash the face will look paler!
- Green tea – anti-oxidant
- Sodium Hyaluronate – Hydrating
- Cucumis Melo extract (melon) – anti-oxidant, rich in vitamin A
I’m impressed by this broad spectrum mineral sunscreen, if you read my previous post on mineral vs chemical sunscreen you will see the normal characteristics of a mineral type that turns a lot of people off. Thankfully Clarins have addressed all these issues and my partner who has dark skin has no problems with the opal cast he used to get from other brands.
It’s suitable for all skin types, another big improvement. A lot of mineral sun protectants are quick thick and feel heavy on the skin with ingredients that can potentially cause blocked pores.
Overall I find this a great product and have been using it on my son before school, I’d always opt for a mineral sunscreen for my child as it doesn’t absorb the UV, it reflects them away.
