Summer Essentials: Clarins High Protection Sunscreen for Face Review

I like to make the most of summer by spending a lot of time outdoors, soaking up some sun and sipping a cold drink but the beautiful weather also comes with an increase in the UV index. Prolonged sun exposure can take quite a toll on skin and may cause sun spots and premature wrinkles. Clarins has developed a wonderful sun protection line that includes some great beach bag essentials. The line focuses on preserving the skin’s health and beauty while efficiently protecting against sun damage.

Today I will review the Sunscreen Control Face Cream with very high broad spectrum protection and SPF 30. The sunscreen is also available in SPF 15, 20, 50+ and includes lotions, body milks, sprays and sticks. Tanning occurs naturally with prolonged sun exposure and Clarin’s sunscreens are designed to promote an even tan to ensure a beautiful glow.

Unlike many sunscreens this one smells great and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple with no need for additional moisturizers. The formula is non-greasy and non-sticky which works well under makeup. It is formulated for sensitive skin or those exposed to intense sunlight and it even protects against wrinkles and sun induced age spots. The texture can feel thick if applied too heavily so I use a thin layer and blend it well for a lighter consistency.

Last week when I was in Jamaica this sunscreen was front and center while I was lounging on the beach and swinging lazily in a hammock under a big mango tree.

The directions indicate that you should apply the cream 15-20 minutes prior to exposure and reapply after swimming and excessive sweating. The cream is formulated with natural plant extracts to nourish skin and it has done a great job protecting me this summer.

The sunscreen retails for $34.00 and you can find it online by clicking HERE and at select retailers including Shoppers Drug Mart.
