Seriously, what’s a lily white girl supposed to do when it’s 31 degrees out and it’s too darn hot to cover up? Be very grateful that the good people at Clarins sent through the new Sun Care Cream Very High Protection SPF30 for Sun-Sensitive Skin ($40), that’s what.
This sunscreen is formulated to protect the most sensitive skin. I love it that it feels like a luxe day cream going on, with a powder-like scent that is so far from a sunscreen scent, you won’t think you’re wearing any.
But what about the technical stuff? The key ingredient in all Clarins’ re-formulated sunscreens is the Clarins Phyto-Sunactyl 2 Complex. This botanical complex protects skin cells from premature ageing and sun-induced damage. This concentrate is based on plant extracts (Senna, Plane Tree, Olive Tree, Baobab and Pea) which protect all of the cells in the epidermis and all of the cell’s structures, and which optimise intercellular communication to help slow down the damage to collagen fibres caused by UV rays. The skin is better protected and its defense capacities are reinforced.
Clarins new Sun Care Body range will be available from 12 October, 2009 (when it really will be hot every day!) at leading department stores, Clarins Gold Salons, select salons and pharmacies nationally and online, http://www.adorebeauty.com.au
