Clinique Sun SolarSmart Collection

Wednesday, June 10, 2009 by Wendy Lam


The new Clinique Sun SolarSmart collection came at the right time as I was looking into getting some sun protection products since summer is around the corner and plus I’m needing a vacation badly! I used to not care about getting sun protection (I know I know) but nowadays I can’t even leave the house without SPF protection for my face, after learning about skin cancer and what UV rays can do to your skin. The SolarSmart now offers a comprehensive defense against harmful UV rays with 3:1 technology, where UVB protection is three times proportional to UVA protection. According to the press release, the ratio 3:1 is crucial to ensure products contain an appropriate amount of UVA protection. Formulated with Clinique’s new Proprietary SolarSmart Technology, a unique blend of photostable sunscreens designed to help skin defend itself from UV assault. I’m def going to try the new SolarSmart stuff, it’s currently available at

The collection consists of:

  • NEW SPF 50 Face Cream ($17.50)
  • NEW SPF 50 Body Cream ($20.00)
  • NEW SPF 30 Face Cream ($17.50)
  • NEW SPF 30 Body Cream ($20.00)
  • NEW SPF 15 Face and Body Cream ($20.00)

“There is no harmless amount of sun exposure for the skin. Even small daily amounts of UV exposure contribute to photo-aging, alterations in the immune system and skin cancer. In fact, we now believe that about 80% of the skin changes we perceive as ‘aging’ are due to sun exposure. This is why daily sun protection is crucial all year long, regardless of season.” – Dr. David Orentreich, Clinique’s Guiding Dermatologist
