Aaah, yet another love from Clarins! If you are looking for the perfect sun protection for your summer holiday, then look no further. The Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray* (£19), is a lightweight dry oil that absorbs immediately into the skin. Previously I have used sun oils that have left me feeling greasy and sticky, this is completely different. It applies as a clear mist that can easily be massaged into the skin, leaving the skin with the most beautiful smelling sheen and actually feels beautifying, as if it is nourishing the skin at the same time as protecting it. It contains a blend of mango, kiwi, mandarin, jasmine, sandalwood and amber which is the most wonderful exotic summer scent, it is literally heaven and I could not get enough of it!
The UVA/UVB 30 protection ensures that your skin is fully protected. I recently tested this out in my holiday to Menorca (Spain) and did not burn once. I have a medium skintone, which tans pretty well but initially I tend to go slightly pink in the first couple of days and then tan. Not with this! There were no pink bits to be seen and my skin gradually developed the most gorgeous tan I have had for a long time and left it so smooth at the same time. It is also worth mentioning that I often react to some of the chemicals in drugstore sun cream, which can leave a unpleasant pimply rash on the skin. I experienced no adverse reactions to this at all, on the contrary my skin was actually in better condition!
This can also be used on the hair too which is amazing especially with colour treated hair like mine, as it will protect the colour from fading and keep it nourished while you are out in the sunshine! I finished the whole 150ml bottle whilst on holiday and it lasted about 8-10 days of continual use. I would 100% recommend this sun protection to anyone, it really was a joy to use and will definitely be repurchasing during the summer.
