Most Helpful Positive Review Love!!
I hate sunscreens but am absolutely OCD about wearing them. I have acne-prone skin that is definitely combo skin...very oily through the t-zone and almost dry everywhere else.
After making my way through every drugstore brand, organic brand, and a very few department store brands I decided to try Clarins again...I used to use this several years ago back when it was still SPF 30! I hate spending this much money but, well, it IS my face we're talking about and Neutrogena and Aveeno just weren't cutting it.
What a surprise! Yes, slightly disappointed that this is a combo-blend sunscreen....I do prefer my physical blockers, but titanium dioxide IS the key ingredient (wish there could have been some zinc in there though) and the chemical blockers Clarins uses are of the least "toxic" variety.
I'm almost hesitant to dare say that....my skin is clearing up since wearing this sunscreen! It wears well under my Tarte foundation and powder and I don't need an additional moisturizer.
I will start saving my spare change and cut back on the lattes in order to continue buying this fantastic product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not using Clarins now the formula has changes
I used the Clarins Mineral 40 UV Plus for over seven years. Seven years of daily use. Repurchasing. Singing its praise. Getting a friend hooked on it...then the formula changed and in order to boost the SPF to 50, you added chemical sunscreen. The 40 was amazing. The scent was pretty and light and didn't have that chemical smell to it. I cannot use chemical sunscreens, because, and I know this sounds odd, they cause part of my tongue and fingertips numb. The 50 did that to me. Never an issue with the 40. I have been hunting high and low for a sunscreen to replace the Clarins 40. Nothing compares, so too be honest, since my last bottle of 40 ran out, I depend only on my CC cream for sun protection. Sad. There should be the option of 40 chemical-free sunscreen in addition to this 50 if you're so insistent on keeping this new formula.

This sunblock is so easy to apply and wear. I use it under make up or alone. I "glisten" everyday while doing yard work and it never runs in my eyes. Live it and use it year round.
Light soft and not too heavy
tess963 from Los Angeles, California
I normally use the tinted version but since working at home and being in yard more I switched to this non tinted version. I love it! Not thick and greasy like other face sunscreen. Plus the antipollution is great protection. My face is loving it!
Aly from California
There is no white cast, it's light, smells good, not irritating and I am glad they have a non tinted option.
Best Sun Protector EVER for my sensible skin
Pelancha from McAllen, Texas
This is the only product that my skin doesn't feel it when I apply . Other UV Protectors irritate my skin somehow but this is so comfortable and light, I don't even feel it. ABSOLUTELY love this product!
Please bring back SPF 40 Formula!
50-something mom from phoenix, az

Finally No Tan Color
Becky from Seattle, WA
Great that they got rid of the tan colored version, for me at least. I don't want to look tan. This was is white-ish & I love it.
The Best Sunscreen
cmuns from Nashville, TN
The small size is easy to travel with. The formula goes on smooth and lightweight and never leaves my face feeling greasy or heavy. I love this product!
Willie Mae from Newport Beach CA
I have use this for years, it is one of the best sunscreens it also moisturizes and it absorbs and feels great!
The only facial sunscreen I use!
Carolina from Reston, VA
I love the texture and the protection this sunscreen gives to my facial skin. I do not wear make up. Therefore, the tinted option is not for me. I wear it after toner and my skin feels hydrated and healthy all day through any sun exposure I have. The size is perfect because I can carry it in my purse and in my carry on when I travel. Please, never discontinue this product.
Best sunscreen on the market today
Mary333 from Houston, Texas
The well designed opening allows me to apply small dots of this sunscreen all over my face then I lightly blend evenly into my skin. Unlike other sunscreen products on the market today, UV Plus Sunscreen Multi-Protection goes on light, colorless, and grease-less. Days I will be outdoors I allow my first application to completely dry then I add a second application to the more sun vulnerable bridge of my nose, ridge of my forehead, and across my cheeks. I have very fair skin and never ever burn when wearing my trusted UV Plus Sunscreen Multi-Protection.
Perfect every day sunscreen
Christylee22 from New York, NY
I have been purchasing this product for a few years. I absolutely love it! It glides on skin smoothly and evenly without any white residue, the texture is silky and feels as though you have nothing on. My skin never burns and feels comfortable all day long! I also love the added benefit of pollution protection. This product is a must!
My Favorite Sunscreen!
JoyceNYC from New York
I have been used this sunscreen for the last 10 years. Whenever I have to buy my friends' birthday present, I absolutely added this sunscreen into the present box! Because I love to maintain our friendship forever as well as our face skin tone brightly and healthy together!
robin421 from Garden City, NY
This sunscreen lotion is an essential for the cabinet. Goes on lightly and gives important protection.
Great product and outstanding price point
cafebusy from Leesburg, VA
I switched from Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery to Clarin's UV Plus after receiving a free sample. It is much more reasonably priced and I feel like I get better coverage and UV protection. The bright glow that the product give my skin is of course a big plus (pun intended)
Belle16 from Rock Island, IL
I've used this for 4 yrs. i don't feel like I'm wearing sunscreen. I use both the tinted and clear. I also do not go outside without it and always use not only on my face but neck and chest.
Perfect protective moisturizer
Pmby150 from Phoenix AZ
I've been using this product for three years. It has an SPF 50 and is non greasy. It works well alone or under makeup. I live in AZ so this product is perfect to protect my skin.
One of my favs!
poseymom from Phoenix, AZ
I have tried loads of sunscreens and this one is my top favorite! It goes on smoothly and works well under makeup. It blends in beautifully too so their is no white showing on my face. I love that it is SPF 50 as I have dry mature skin and live in a desert climate. A bottle lasts a good while and I am always looking to repurchase.
I am in LOVE with this sunscreen, it illuminates.
LuckyGirl from Minneapolis, MN
I purchase a bottle of this sunscreen for each summer season since my trip to Europe in 2015. I love the luminescent glow it gives my skin and makes an ideal layer underneath my foundation. Non-greasy and yet just ever-so-slight moisturizing effect. I swear, it also diminishes light discoloration although I have no proof. It definitely has been a major player in my effort to protect my skin. It has helped keep me looking younger than almost all of my friends in their 60s.
I love it
Mayrene from Florida
Is my favorite sunscreen protector. Is light and I love the fact is without color. Ty Clarins
Lightweight, Doesn't Irritate or Stain Clothing
LizBeth from Minneapolis, MN
Excellent product. If worn on neck, does not stain white clothing. If used near eye area, does not sting or irritate. Plus, it screens out hramful rays as expected.
katia399 from Pennsylvania
I have been using this for at least five years, from our last years in the South to now in PA. As both sun exposure and particles in our air increase, it is even more important to protect our skin both in and out of doors. This lightweight but effective lotion does it. A little goes a long way, as well.
okat sunscreen but leave a white cast

I like everything except that it leaves a white cast on my face
I love this!
jillp from san diego, ca
I have been using this product for years. It is a terrific sunscreen and smells like a dream. I love the texture and it works well under makeup. Highly recommend.
Bring Back the SPF 40 !
bunnybixler from IN
Not as good as the titanium dioxide version. Please bring that back!
UV Plus Tint
Feesah from undisclosed
I am disappointed Clarins discontinued the dark tint. It was a great substitution for foundation especially during the summer months and it matched my complexion perfectly. Also, they have discontinued the concealer in #4 which is also for darker skin tones. I have used these products for years but am now looking for a brand that carries a range of colors for all skin tones.
