Clarins has added to their already phenomenal HP line of products with Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection Tint SPF 40 Deep 1.7 oz. I loved that it delivered exactly what it promised - lightweight, barely there color (and a good match in deep) and excellent sun protection. Even though the formula is light, it's very smooth and beautiful coverage.
Although this will not offer real coverage for blemishes and skin discoloration, it does manage to subtly even out skin tone and has great staying power through heat/humidity. The formula is quite hydrating, very silky and almost "milky" in feel. Once applied, it had a slight sheen finish, so for a true matte look, a bit of translucent power was be needed.
This is the perfect sunscreen/tinted moisturizer solution for those of you who hate the "feel" of both sunscreen (and foundation) in the summer. It doesn't get oily in the afternoon and didn't clog my pores. It's very concentrated, so just a bit is needed for the entire face. This is the perfect solution for weekends when you're running around and still want to look polished without much work, and of course for a day at the beach/pool to keep protected and looking great. - RLB
