Pros: Light texture, elegant packaging.
Cons: Doesn't appear to provide as much UVA protection than Shiseido's Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 60 sunscreen (if I used the sunscreen simulator correctly).
I really wanted to like this because the tinted version (which has a bit less protection btw), has the most beautiful, natural-looking coverage, but good UVA protection is more important to me.

This isn't a bad product, it gets the job done. I like the 40 SPF protection as I live in sunny warm to hot climate. However, I dislike having to first clean my face, then add this sunscreen, then a moisturizer, then a foundation. it's just one extra step I'd rather not take. I want Clarins to invent a great moisturizer that has a nice SPF 40 in it already that's light weight.

I am really happy with this product. I use it every morning on my face and neck before I put on my moisturiser (I use a tinted moisturiser and that is why I apply the sunscreen before, in order to avoid whiteness). It gives me the sun protection I need during the day, without the usual stickiness and perfume from a lot of other sunscreens. There is a light scent to this product, but after applying it usually vaporises (or maybe the scent blends in with my perfume) and it does not give you that "I have just been to the beach"-smell.
I have combination skin with oily t-zone, and this does not make the skin more oily nor does it make my skin break out. But I still get freckles on my cheek bone and nose bridge after a certain time of sun exposure.

I bought this product in the version with tint, and bought it in 'light'.
I switched to this product from Dr. Dennis Gross All-in-One tinted moisturizer, because I wanted something with a higher SPF for the spring/summer. Because it is really just for sun protection I apply a daily moisturizer first.
I'm fair, with pink undertones and this product had a slightly yellow tint to it, but was ultimately unnoticeable, even less noticeable with a slight tan.
This product has surprisingly good coverage (especially considering how thin it feels), and goes on light, with no oily residue and it has not caused my dry to combination skin to break out. I've been using it for a month and will continue using it throughout the summer.

Nice, light texture but was very disappointed that it didn't prevent freckles from forming I live near the Equator where there is lots of sun. Not repurchasing unfortunately. I thought I had found the HG sunscreen.

This gives me the most protection with the least amount of slimy residue when I must be outdoors and doing something physical like playing tennis or golf, and am not wearing any makeup but still want to look and feel confident. Non greasy, non clogging this is what I reach for and purchase for events where I will be around people outside. Washes off when I'm done with it with no problems.

Bought this for its titanium dioxide sunscreen. Love the fact it's weightless non greasy and works well under make up.However it's FULL of alcohol and it's fragranced. What's the point of protecting skin against the sun only to damage it with alcohol and this amount IS damaging.

To be honest this is the first product designed solely for protecting the skin from the sun I have ever used. I have been suffering from breakouts for such a long time and after drying out my skin with acne.org BP treatment (which has actually helped me a lot!) I decided to start treating my face with far more care. I ended up buying a bunch of Clarins products, which was a completely random choice at first. But after trying some of the stuff I saw a great deal of improvement in the quality of my skin. Plus the SA at Clarins was so generous and provided me with so many samples that I had a chance to experience the key skincare products like toners, day and night creams, serums, so I ended up buying those and have absolutely no regrets whatsoever!
So back to the product: Like I said it it's the first sunscreen I have ever tried (used to rely on SPFs in y makeup before). I have recently moved to Tel-Aviv and it is very sunny here pretty much all year round, so I decided to purchase a proper protection. I like the lightness of this product, it absorbs quickly and does not leave my skin greasy (and I have an oily skin).
Overall, I am pleased with both Clarins and this product in particular. Will definetely repurchase unless I find something else I like more.

it has awful chemical smell that irritates my nose, the lotion is light, a bit shiny but its not that bad compared to other thick sunscreen. i bought it coz it has natural sunscreen but it is packed with fragrance and alcohol, not good for our skin.

i have searched high and low for a good sunscreen...i have combo/oily skin also sensitive (acne prone)--this sunscreen is bombdiggidy...it goes on smooth but you have to work quickly because it does dry up fast...it dries matte which helps it double up as a primer for make up--i don't wear any face make up so it works great for oil control and spf---i do have to blot it once a day after being in the sun while driving and what not but if you powder it you shouldn't have any issues with shine

This is less expensive and just as effective as the sunscreen I have been purchasing from my Dr's skincare department. I have very sensitive eyes that get watery and go bloodshot on me when using the wrong-for-me sunscreens. I am into my second tube of this and it is cheaper by more than half of what I had been paying for almost 2 years. I see oily girls before me have given it favorable reviews, and I am here to represent the combo.dryer skin ladies. I have a backup of this and hope they do not change the formula/ Great for sensitive eyes.

Finally, the perfect sunscreen for oily, sensitive skin. I have oily-combination skin and almost every sunscreen I have tried, even those labelled "oil-free" ends up looking greasy and shiny on my T-zone. This product dries to a matte finish and - hallelujah! - my skin is still matte at the end of the day. Amazing. I also love the fact that the sunscreen is 100% chemical-free (it's titanium dioxide, which is a physical sunscreen) and is great if you tend to be allergic or sensitive to chemical sunscreens.

This is a great sunscreen for daily use. I used to be a fan of La Roche Posay's Anthelios sunscreen but I think this sunscreen from Clarins may have replaced it as my current favorite. It absorbs quickly, has a pleasant scent, and is non-greasy. I'm currently using a sample but I'm definitely putting this on my shopping list when I run out.

Excellent product and on my second. Light in texture and quite runny in nature (so be awfully careful when you dispense it) which makes it excellent for those with oily skin. I have normal skin which tends toward acne and have come to a conclusion that no matter how much research I do before investing in any product when it comes to pore clogging ingredients (of course I try to use products with the utmost minimum of pore clogging ingredients), I still break out. This is probably because of the amount of layers of product one uses at my age- bha/aha treatments, serum, moisturizer, sunscreen, and if necessary, primer, foundation and concealer ... the list goes on, sweeties. Lots of layers, lots of acne contributing factors. But this product is a constant because not only is the pore clogging ingredients almost non-existent, it is so light in texture and high in protection.
This makes it possible for those with drier skin to compensate with moisturizer while getting the best insurance against sunspots and damage. The rep also stressed that you only need a small amount to cover because it is quite potent in content (this was met with dubiousness at first because I always held the belief that with sunscreen, more is safer). I can say that it has held its end of the bargain, and as far as I can tell, it's saved me from new nasty sunspots. For those who can afford it, because it costs quite a pretty penny, consider purchasing. I simply cannot do without it.

This product is of liquid consistency. It applies very easily on the skin and absorbs fairly quickly. I find that it is best to apply this first and then apply your moisturizer. On my very oily skin, it seems that applying the product first helps keep my makeup stay in place. I have not experienced any breakouts with this product, which is a plus.

Similar to Shiseido's Urban Oil-free, this sunscreen has a runny consistency that's easy to blend into the skin. You get a soft-matte finish and pretty decent oil-control. It's easy to put primer and foundation over this, and there is no noticeable white cast -- something I saw with the Shiseido. Again, the two are very similar. I would say this is the better product for those with oily skin because this has better oil-control (the Shiseido has none). The white cast issue makes this a better choice as well. Super oily skin might want to look for something better, but I think slightly oily or combination skin would do well with this.

The worst thing I can say about this product is that it does not smell great. It also has a bluish-purple tint that is just barely visible right when is goes on. It is not really noticeable and seems to go away. The nice thing about this sunscreen is that it never burns my sensitive eyes even if it gets in them. Another little bonus is that it doesn't stain the necklines of light-colored clothing. It will save your skin and your wardrobe.

NC25 Chinese, yellow undertones.
I purchased this version in the Tint - Light, and unfortunately it definitely has a definite orange tone to it and bit too dark for me (unless you want that bronzey look). Wished it worked out, as the sunscreen itself has great reviews.

I've already written a review for UV Plus - there seem to be 2 listings for this product - and I will repeat the praise from that other review in this one.
Come summertime and the hot, sticky weather, this is a fabulous face protector. It has a high level of SPF, is totally non-greasy, works great under makeup (it is so smooth and matte that it seems almost like a primer) and it turns all of my face products that don't have any UV protection in them into products that I can safely and happily use when the UV index is high. This has a similar texture and finish as the Kiehl's facial SPF (which I have also reviewed) so it's a toss up as to which one I'll repurchase, since you don't really need both. I'll probably check to see which has the longer expiry date and purchase that one.
This is truly an excellent product. The price might seem a bit steep but for the protection it offers to my face - well, it's hard to put a price on that.

I have been using this for 3 months and have had no problems.
