Clarins’ UV Plus [5P] Multi-Protection Moisturising Screen is an SPF 50 facial sunscreen for all skin types, which is available in two shades. No matter whether you opt for the invisible translucent shade or the subtly tinted rosy shade, the SPF offers high defence against everything from UV rays to pollution.
The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…
Clarins’ UV Plus Anti-Pollution SPF 50 guards skin against five types of pollutants, including atmospheric and indoor pollution, photo-pollution, blue light and pollen, while offering high SPF defence.
But why does our skin need to be protected against all of these natural aggressors? Clarins understand the harmful effects of UV rays on the skin, causing everything from sunburn to photoaging and more dangerous skin damage. They’re also aware that pollution can play a part in skin dehydration, dullness, inflammation and accelerated ageing, so they’ve created a multitasking formula to target a range of natural stressors.
You Will Love This If…
If nature-loving skincare and research-driven formulas are your thing, then you’ll love Clarins’ anti-pollution SPF. Clarins have gone to great lengths to create and perfect this formulation; they even undertook an international study to analyse the level of exposure to major pollutants faced by people across the world. They found conclusive evidence that four of the five primary pollutants cause skin cells to suffer oxidative stress, which plays a part in premature ageing, uneven tone, skin dehydration and more.
So, if you live in the city and want an incredibly protective formula that keeps your skin guarded against both UV rays and pollution, Clarins’ formula will be an excellent choice for you.
Clarins has always found inspiration in nature, so it comes as no surprise that mango leaf lies at the heart of this formula. Through research, Clarins discovered that mango tree leaves secrete antioxidant molecules that act just like a natural shield to protect the plant against harmful UV rays. So, Clarins’ harness this clever ingredient to encourage skin to defend itself against oxidative stress caused by environmental aggressors and pollution, so skin looks healthier and younger in the long run.
But what else is behind this powerhouse formula? Besides high broad-spectrum UV defence and mango leaves, Clarins also feature organic leaf of life extract to help provide eight hours of non-stop hydration. In addition, Clarins has worked with fair-trade programmes to protect the local environment and population when sourcing organic mango leaf and the leaf of life extracts found in this formula.
It doesn’t stop there; you’ll also find Clarins’ Anti-Pollution Complex powers this formula. Now in its eighth generation, this innovative Anti-Pollution Complex continues to evolve to target and adapt to changes in our environment, thanks to the latest scientific discoveries. The formula is now comprised of three highly effective plant extracts to defend against pollution and premature ageing:
• Furcellaria extract, which has a second skin effect to help physically protect against dehydration caused by pollution
• Organic nipplewort extract, which has anti-free radical properties that help stimulate the skin’s natural defences against environmental aggressions, indoor and atmospheric pollution
• Organic white horehound extract, a plant that continues to shield skin from atmospheric and indoor pollution
The sunscreen has an oil-free, gel-cream texture with a lightweight finish. The formula is easily absorbed for a soft-touch finish, making it ideal for everyday wear and for wear beneath makeup. The SPF is available in two shades:
Translucent: Offers an invisible finish.
Rose: Adds a rosy glow for a healthy, radiant complexion.
