Clarins BB Cream with SPF 40

Ever since I started using Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream HERE, I have been using it literally every day! Sadly that BB cream is not launched in India, so I decided to pick this up.. Read on to find if I love this like I loved the last BB cream..

My views on Clarins UV Plus HP BB Cream with SPF 40:

The Clarins UV Plus HP BB cream with SPF 40 comes in a sleek white tube with a silver screw lid. It has a very thin nozzle so there is no product wastage. Unfortunately, this BB cream comes in just one shade. It is pretty light and might suit light-medium skinned girls. It would be ashy for dusky girl, so thats the downside!

In the beginning, I was a bit skeptical to buy this because the shade was very light and had pink undertone to it. But the SA was very confident that once it was blended it would look natural and give a nice healthy glow. The texture is thick, a very small amount of product is required for the entire face. It blends with ease, and dries into matte leaving the skin glowing. Which is why I love Clarins and also love that fact it is SPF 40 and PA+++, which means protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

The combination of a 100% mineral screen, Clarins exclusive anti-pollution complex and cantaloupe melon extract, effectively protects skin against UV rays, pollution and oxidants.

I love to use my fingers to blend this because it gives a better coverage that way. This BB cream gives a medium coverage hides pigmentation and acne scars pretty decently. It is nice when you wear just the BB cream and follow up with compact or loose powder. The staying power is incredible. It stays all day long and does not transfer which is great! Another reason to love clarins BB cream is that it does not break me out or irritate my sensitive skin.


1. Consistency is quite thick.
2. Though its thick, it blends with easy.
3. Medium coverage, covers pigmentation and acne scars pretty well.
4. Dries matte and gives a nice glow to the face.
5. Packaging is cute and handy.
6. Does not cause break out or make my skin oily.
7. Comes with SPF 40, protects skin against UV rays, pollution and oxidants.


1. Only 1 shade available. So its a problem for girls with darker skin tones.
2. Very expensive!


Clarins UV Plus HP BB cream is one ahhmazing BB cream which gives a medium coverage, lasts all day and stays matte also! Its thick in consistency and blends beautifully covering pigmentation or acne scars. Only downside is that it comes in one shade but otherwise its a great BB cream. Worth every penny!
