Clarins is a French brand with an uber cult status and loads of their products are absolute beauty classics (hello, Beauty Flash Balm!). Their skincare range is one of the best available out there. I've tried many of their products before and today I'm here to talk about one of their most basic ones: the Sun Wrinkle Control Cream!
I'm sure I don't need to tell you guys: exposure to sun rays is one of the biggest causes of skin aging, along with smoking and sugar consumption. And that is why it's so important to wear sunscreen every-single-day! Even if it's cloudy outside, don't forget that clouds don't filter UVA and UVB rays. Luckily, wearing sunscreen daily is a habit I got into last year and I'm still managing to keep up!
And I think what helped me keep this habit going was having found the right product for me! This Clarins sunscreen has both UVA and UVB protection (only one or the other won't give you the protection you need, always read the label), so it's already ideal in that sense.
But the biggest reason why I fell in love with it is the texture: it doesn't sit completely matte, but there's also nothing oily about it! I know that the main reason I never liked wearing sunscreen before was that I always felt it sticky and heavy on my face and I knew any make up on top would just melt right off. But this is so light in texture, I barely even notice it's there and it's a good enough base for make up (no bits peeling off or grey face with this one!). I'm going on holiday to Brazil next week and I've already picked up an extra bottle!
You can pick it up from Boots or find it online at Escentuals.com and it's always around £18!
So, do you wear sunscreen daily??
