I have been trying for a very long time to find an SPF that isn’t too greasy and doesn’t clog my pores. I came across the Clarins UV+ SPF 50 Fluid which claims to be suitable for all skin types and do exactly what I’m looking for..
So the basics, this is an SPF 50 fluid which contains White Tea, Succory Dock-Cress and Cantaloupe Melon. It claims to be soothing,oil free, protect against free radicals,pollution and damaging UV rays. It has a white colour but becomes transparent on the skin and has a very fine texture.
I got this just before my trip to Italy and have been using it since. I like that it has a matifying effect on the skin especially as I have combination skin and can be quite oily in parts. Any SPF that I used previously caused my skin to be quite greasy before I ever applied my makeup but this doesn’t. It nearly acts as a primer. It has a subtle scent and a little goes a long way. The bottle is quite small for this reason, 30mls.The bottle is a little pricey for the size, €38 but a little does go a long way. I didn’t get any breakouts from it but if you are dry to very dry then it might cause this problem due to the matifying effect.
Overall, I quite like this due to the fact that I can use it everyday under my makeup without bother. I like the matifying nature and the fact that it removes the need for a primer. I would recommend it but I think it might suit an oily/ combination skin more than a dry/very dry skin type.
So until next time,Happy Sunday.♥
