Clarins is known for high quality sun protection, skin care, and gorgeous makeup and fragrances, but when it comes to sun sensitive areas of your skin that are exposed all the time (eg. lips, nose and eyes) it isn’t practical to carry a huge bottle of sun protective lotion or cream with you.
So Clarins has come up with a clever new solid stick of SPF 30 broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection that lets you put the protection where you want it, easily, quickly, and without any mess or strain on your purse. Their Clarins SPF 30 Sun Control Stick ($26.00 0.28 0z.) is the perfect choice!
This 100% mineral filter product is ok for even those with the most sensitive skin issues, and for young children (over 6 months). It is attractively packaged in a petite, flattened, bullet-shaped, bright yellow “dial up” stick with red lettering (you can find it easily even in the bottom of your handbag). It is literally no larger than your two thumbs! There’s no reason to be without.
If you know you’re going to be going out for lunch, let’s say, and you are planning to sit outside, apply the clear, odorless stick to your skin about 30 minutes before you’re ready to go out, and you’ll be protected. But as long as you have this mini but mighty sun screen in your bag or pocket, you’ll never be caught short no matter where you are.
This must-have sun screen stick has the same plant extracts formula used in the Clarins Sun product range including such skin-loving ingredients as: Centella asiatica, vitamin E (to protect against the sun’s damaging, aging rays); and a combination of sunflower wax, mango and shea butter to nourish and protect against dehydration, and leave skin feeling supple.
There are no chemical filters so this stick is gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. The actives are a large dose of 10.4% Titanium Dioxide, and 3.8% zinc oxide. *note: zinc oxide can leave an ashy coating on very deep skin, but on lips and eyes this may not be much of an issue. The point is that the stick is portable, effective, and actually non-sticky or greasy, so you will actually want to use it.
