Clarins UV Plus & BB Perfecting Cream BB Cream SPF 40~ Review and swatches

I’m always on a hunt for BB creams that would suit my oily skin. Usually, the ones I find always breaks me out so I decided to use a sample product by Clarins before investing on a regular size cream which is pretty expensive. So, on today’s post, I shall be reviewing the Clarins UV Plus & BB Perfecting BB cream.

 My take on the UV Plus & BB Perfecting Cream BB Cream SPF 40: This BB cream comes in 30 ml white tube with the description mentioned on it. It has a screw lid with a nozzle tip which is non-messy and convenient to squeeze out the required amount. Since the packaging is travel friendly since it is made out of plastic.

Color: It has a medium beige color that will flatter most of our Indian skin tones. I would recommend trying out a sample before investing on a steep product, as it might not suit very deep skin tone beauties. A small amount is all you need to apply else one would end up looking like a pale ghost. It works exactly as a foundation does so go easy on it.


Texture: It has a cream formula, which is smooth and applies well all over my face. It is non greasy and blends easily, absorbs quickly and settles into a matte finish yet giving out a healthy glow to my skin. I like how it felt lightweight as I have had terrible experience with my earlier bb cream. It also protects the skin from pollution and harmful UV rays because of the high SPF present in it. It didn’t break me out yet and I hope it never does.

 Pigmentation: It has a beige tint, which gives a natural coverage and a healthy glow.

Staying power: It last for 4 to 5 hours on me considering my oily skin but it will last longer on different skin type.



Scent: I don’t know how to explain the scent but it has a slight floral fragrance.
