Here is what is happening within the beauty world at the moment...

Protect your skin with this new launch - "Beauty brand Clarins has announced the launch of UV Plus Anti-Pollution Day Screen High Protection SPF 50, following the success of its UV 40 Day Screen. The powerful formula, with plant-powered multi-protection, offers an incredibly fine, transparent texture that is compatible with all skincare and make-up products, for highly protected skin that always appears luminous, fresh and youthful. High level UVB, UVA and Infra-red protection is provided by 100% mineral titanium dioxide filters. As these filters are natural rather than chemical, they do not absorb in to the skin, but rather protect from the surface, meaning UV Plus HP is compatible with all day creams and tolerated by all skin types, including the most sensitive. Key ingredients include organic alpin sanicle extract, cantaloupe melon extract, organic blackcurrant extract, hyaluronic acid, and Clarins' anti-pollution complex of white tea, succory, dock cress, rhodiola, venuceane and glycofilm.
