Phew what a long name for a sunscreen!
I asked in Facebook yesterday what should I blog about and a few of you gave me your suggestions. Thank you for that. You gave me a few idea :). Stay tune! I have a confession. It’s not for “tomorrow” post but for 2 days after that as I always blog ahead. You’re reading this today because I swapped it haha. I have quite a number of products that I wanted to talk about but I wouldn’t wanna jam the blog with review everyday. Then I have a problem. I can only do product review because I have the pictures ready. If I change my blog direction for the day I don’t have any images! Now that the secret is out, let’s move on shall we?
For today I decided to introduce you to another version of sunscreen by Clarins. I reviewed Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection (Tinted) before. Earlier this year Clarins added Beige into their UV Plus HP family. So now we have Neutral, Tinted and Beige.
Just like it’s brother and sister there’s no difference in terms of packaging, content ml and design for Beige. In fact Neutral and Tinted had undergo a packaging and logo revamp earlier somewhere early this year. If you are a new user to Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection you might want to be aware of content oozing out after shaking the bottle.
I find that the nozzle is suitable for sunscreen. It’s easy to dispense the right amount of content onto the palm without a glitch.
Neutral will appear transparent after applied while Tinted will gave the face a hint of glow. I used to skip foundation and proceed to pressed powder after applying Tinted as it gave a teeny weeny coverage. But what about Beige? Beige on the other hand is so much different from Neutral and Tinted. Beige gave me a more coverage with foundation color on although the texture is the same with Tinted. Once applied on my face it looked like as if I had foundation on.
If I need as much as 20 cent amount for Tinted, with Beige I only need 5 cent and sometimes 10 cent when I feel like I need more.
Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection comes with SPF40 UVA-UVB/PA+++. I always hear people telling me the higher SPF it is the oilier it gets. I don’t experience that with Clarins. Neutral and Tinted is more “wet” but Beige is slightly on the drier side thus giving me a complete matte look. Totally love it. Sunscreen that is matte. Not often we see that right?
Sunscreen are to be applied after skin care before makeup. Just warm the product with both palm and pat gently onto the whole face. DO NOT rub in as it flakes. Normally after applying this sunscreen I will let it set for a while before proceeding with makeup just like what I always do when layering skin care. If you applied this alone you need to properly remove it thoroughly as it contain SPF.
Here’s the Before and After comparison picture. The coverage is superb but do not over-apply this. I’ve learnt that your makeup will looked a bit cakey if you slap on more than enough of this Beige sunscreen due to it’s coverage. I personally experienced it before as I dispensed too much onto my palm. At the beginning I’m not sure how much I need and I’m too used to 20 cent of Tinted. Not wanting to waste I just pat on all of it 🙂
If you feel like skipping your liquid foundation and just wanna proceed to powder by all mean you can do so. This give me a decent coverage with the right amount without cakey or patchy on me after makeup. It is the only sunscreen that I’ve used and been using it since then. Currently I’m rotating between Tinted and Beige.
Are you liking this award-winning sunscreen too?
