Proper sun protection prevents skin from premature ageing, and brings us healthy and beautiful skin. Therefore, Even though we think we are not going to expose ourselves to a lot of sun, we still should not leave the house without using any sunscreen! Not even on a cloudy day!
So today, I’m going to review the Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40. Oh my, what a mouthful, haha…!
I got it about three weeks ago, and have been using it almost everyday since then.

Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 ~ Transparent
| Packaging |
Clarins UV Plus HP comes in a very handy little 30 ml bottle. I think this bottle looks really cute!
| Formula, Scent and Finish |
The oil-free milky formula blends out transparently, spreads very easily and gets absorbed very well. There is a light scent to it, which I personally find to be quite pleasant. Even people who might not enjoy the scent can rest assured, since it faints quickly after application.
The dewy finish leaves skin look smooth and even without the white cast. It absolutely doesn’t leave an oily feel or stickiness behind. All you will feel and see is soft, moisturized and glowy skin.
| Availability and Price |
Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 is available internationally at Clarins counters and department stores. Retail price is 38,00 USD / 35,95 €.
| Verdict |
I’m very fond of the super lightweight formula that provides a non-sticky and dewy finish. Makeup seems to go on more easily when using this beforehand, and it doesn’t make my skin get oily during the day, but rather helps my makeup stay fresh the whole day.
Keeping in mind that my skin is quite sensitive and easily reacts with break-outs, this sunscreen didn’t cause any troubles!
I highly recommend Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 to people with sensitive skin or with skin that easily tends to breakout from sunscreens, since it uses 100% mineral screen, which is well-tolerated. This is also for you, if you prefer a sunscreen with a weightless wear!
Texture, Scent and Finish: 5/5
