Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40


This summer I vow to never get a sunburn. 

Which is basically an impossible task for someone like myself (WHITE AS ALL HELL.). I've never managed to get through a whole summer without some sort of burn -- ranging from some red, irritated skin to peeling shoulders to WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED AM I GOING TO NEED A SKIN TRANSPLANT. But, not this time. No, no. This is going to be the summer of shade and the summer of Clarins' UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection.

This stuff is seriously stellar -- I've gone though 1/2 a bottle already and it is my go to facial sunscreen. I've become even more cognizant about sun protection than before (read: I'm becoming an SPF psychopath) because I'll be damned if I'm getting skin cancer again! With SPF 40 and UVA-UVB protection you can trust, not just some added SPF to your makeup product, this physical sunscreen (sing it with me: "I AM TITANNNIUMMM... dioxide") feels weightless on your skin and doesn't leave any awkward white cast. Note: I've not paid attention/tested this for flashback with photography, so I can't help you there.

Apply it under makeup. Wear it alone. Check out the tinted versions (too dark for me, otherwise I would). Whatever you do, just get it and wear it every day.


  1. I should really really REALLY just get a separate sun protection product like this instead of a moisturizer with SPF in it. I've heard you talk about this enough to want to rush out and finally pick this product up. xx

  2. Shiseido's Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion w/ Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ is muh faaaaave. Reminds me of this actually (I've tried it); although it leaves a white cast a few seconds after application but it vanishes after a while.

    And.. when's a new video coming? Missing some Chelsea in my feed! xx

  3. I'm currently using the Shiseido one but would love to try this if it works with oilier skin too :)

  4. Hey Chelsea, Just wondering - do you use a primer over/under this product when wearing it with makeup? I recently tried and loved the La Roche Posay primer with SPF50 but, sadly, it's giving me eczema :( Need a new option. Cheers!

  5. Chelsea, I am going to try this stuff. FYI: I am as white as you and usually wear 60 on my face. Just saying.

  6. how do you remove the sunscreen?
