Review – Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40


To me, sun protection is always the most important skin care regimen and is the first line of defense against skin aging. As I truly understand that diligent use of a sunscreen allows some repair as well as protection from further sun damage. Even though the sheer foundation I’ve used provides SPF 30 but that doesn’t stop me from using a sunscreen for double protection.

More than six months ago, I’ve decided to stop wearing foundation as I feel that it makes my skin looking cakey and ‘make-up’. Maybe you can blame it on the foundation or maybe is the way I apply it. And moreover, I aim to create a more natural-looking skin too. Therefore, I began looking around for a well-formulated tinted sunscreen that not only can provide good sun protection but also can superficially help to even up my skin tone without looking ‘make-up’. Finally I’ve found Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40.

Product claims

The ultimate natural, non-chemical day screen. It has anti-UV and anti-pollution protection with 100% micronized, microdispersed mineral filters that guarantees optimal tolerance for even the most delicate skin.


Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 contains titanium dioxide, a natural mineral sunscreen that protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered to have no risk of skin irritation.

Thermus thermophillus ferment has antioxidant properties against UV damage and maintains skin barrier. Other antioxidants include tocopheryl acetate and camellia sinensis leaf extract that protects the skin against pollution and free radicals.

Although it contains handful of skin irritant ingredients like alcohol, fragrance and sodium lauryl sulfate but thankfully these ingredients never cause any problem to my skin at all.


What a great sunscreen! Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 does the job very well.

As Clarins is well-known for its broad selection of effective, broad-spectrum sunscreens, I have no worry when I selected Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 as my next sunscreen.

A 100% natural mineral screen and a high SPF 40, this sunscreen ensures complete and effective protection against UVA and UVB rays.

In fact, UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 comes in 2 tones. One with tinted and one without.

I extremely love the light and thin tinted blend. The color tone is very suitable for my fair skin. And it is so thin that I barely feel I am wearing any sunscreen. It also helps to even up my skin tone perfectly. This non-greasy sunscreen doesn’t make my skin feeling oily even few hours after application.

With Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40, I can achieve a sun protected natural-looking even skin tone without even wearing any foundation. It’s just like killing two birds with one stone. Hahaha!!!


Will I buy it again? Yes for sure!
