Clarins Hydra-Balance Tinted Moisturizer

We've been told for years that the minimum SPF we should look for in our skincare products is 15.

So what's the point of putting SPF 6 in this tinted moisturizer? It's not high enough to provide adequate sun protection, so most likely all it's doing is jacking up the cost of the product (it's $40!). And if you use it, you'll need a separate sunscreen, which is just what everyone wants, right? Another layer of stuff on your face.

Clarins makes plenty of other products with SPFs up to 40, so why not bring this one up to par?
