Comments about Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

I wish this went on better, I have to warm it up before putting it on to get it to blend well, once warm it blends better but still not great. I like it once in and feel it lasts all day and feels better than foundation.

        I have been using this product daily for a couple years now and I absolutely love it. I have oily/combination skin and it works great for me. It's the perfect tinted primer that is lightweight (& tinted). Highly recommend :)

        I'm a big fan of Clinique but this is the first product I don't like. It will not blend into my skin and leaves streaks and is too thick. I will have to throw it away unfortunately.

          Comments about Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

          I wanted to get away from heavy foundation and had been trying different brands of BB Cream. This is the BEST by far its at a higher price point but definitely worth it. This creates a fresh face healthy glow, and blends perfectly into my skin giving medium coverage. The texture is light and its a plus that you get SPF 30 protection, would recommend using a translucent setting powder.

                Comments about Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

                Wanted something that I could wear alone or under powder foundation - something just light with just a little coverage. I found this to be very heavy and oily on my face. I already have oily skin so by midday I was blotting and smearing. That's another thing - I didn't find that this product went on very well. I have tried with sponge and foundation brush and it just doesn't smooth on as other foundations I've used in the past. Sticking to just powder for now.

                      I was surprised to have not tried this product until now. Perfect for everyday use when going in and out of the house. Living in Florida the SPF is a must and this product went on smooth and evened out my skin tone for a natural look. I did use some concealer on a few areas but I will continue to use this product everyday.
