here comes the sun
I’m a huge advocate for sun safety, however the sunscreen we slather on to protect ourselves from the sun’s harmful rays is doing incredible damage to the world’s coral reefs. Recent studies show that coral reefs are in more danger than we actually thought. This is why I was very excited when Clarins released their newest range of advanced sun care products this year, offering high sun protection, as well as being waterproof, sweat-proof, hydrating and most importantly, avoiding the use of any ingredients that are harmful to coral. I have already seen so many people across social media loving these product so I couldn’t wait to finally test them myself. I was very kindly sent a few products from their range and I’m excited to share my thoughts with you today. Read on to find out more about these products.
I wear an SPF on my face every single day without fail and the Clarins Dry Touch Facial Sun Care UVA/UVB 30 has been my go to product for the last few weeks. The texture feels very hydrating and melts into the skin quite quickly. I like that it’s dry to the touch with a matte finish, making it the perfect base for makeup application. The formula is enriched with antioxidants, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. Similarly the Clarins Sun Care Body Cream UVA/UVB 30 is just as easy to use, offering high sun protection while also being waterproof. I love that it doesn’t leave any white streaks and dries to a velvety soft finish. I also like to use sunscreen in a spray-on from from time to time and the Clarins Sun Care Body Lotion-in-Spray UVA/UVB 50+ has to be my new favourite! The spray spreads easily and I really enjoy using the light, liquid texture. The range also includes a Mineral Sun Care Compact UVA/UVB 30 which is perfect for on the go. It’s a tinted liquid that comes in a portable case along with a washable sponge for application. The skin looks even and luminous with a velvety soft finish. This is absolutely perfect for long strolls around the city.
The range also offers the Soothing After Sun Balm and Gel options. The scent of these products instantly reminds me of the sun and vacation – I absolutely adore it. The texture of the balm is very creamy and sinks into the skin nicely, aiming to make your tan last for a long time. It has a very cooling and refreshing effect on the skin and feels very soothing and nourishing. This balm protects against free-radical damage and regenerates the skin.
