Today review is for Clarins Perfecting Cream Multi-Protection BB Cream SPF40+PA+++. This product has the renewed version on it which is in red tube with lower SPF25+, almost same formula – only with lower SPF and the new version available in few shades while the old version only one shade. I am reviewing the older version which has been long overdue review I have to write before throwing away the empty tube – just so I can refer back when I need to.

This BB cream can be applied on the last step of skin care and can be used as sunscreen as well. The consistency is thick, creamy and sticky. I found this BB cream not suitable for dry skin, unless you have a good moisturizer and hydrate your skin well, otherwise it will set on your dry patch or fine lines and get cakey. Very excellent coverage, it cover imperfections well. The shade is okay for me but it is slightly orangey. Blend-able with smooth, matte finish not oily at all.
High coverage, cover most imperfections well
SPF40 UVA-UVB/ PA+++
Not moisturizing enough, not suitable for dry skin
Products overflow during the first few usage
Slightly orangey shade
Thick and creamy consistency, cakey on dry skin
- Packing - In tube with 30ml products, the first few days of usage it overflow without me squeezing it, quite waste of products.
- Coverage - High coverage, cover imperfection well.
- Price - Mid-range to high end side.
- Scent - Scented, smell like the other Clarins products.
- Shade/Color - Only one shade for the old version and new version more shade available. Slightly orangey.
- Finishing - Matte, even and smooth, however it will set on dry skin, not moisturizing enough.
Final verdict, this product has too many flaws for me to use as BB Cream. However if you already purchase this, you can use this product like a concealer to cover on the imperfection and blend it, not the whole face though, the coverage is really good.
