    Comments about Clinique City Block Sheer Broad Spectrum SPF 25:

    First, I LOVE clinique. I gave this product a test drive for about 2 weeks. I applied it under my Foundation, I found it to be too thick for my skin, and I was only within a couple hours after sitting all my makeup. I ended up returning this lotion and purchasing the even better skin tone correcting lotion SPF 20. I have very oily skin and I'm in my late thirties.

      I have used this sunscreen since it was first launched; I use it daily, and alternate it with the higher City Block spf. I use Renova and need daily sun protection. This is free from chemical irritants and provides continual protection. It also doubles as a primer.

        I adore Clinique's City Block because it is free of chemical irritants and doesn't bother my skin; it does, however, protect my skin from UV rays. I wear it all year long.

              I use this product for daily use. It does not have the usual sunscreen smell which is very nice. No smell at all. You will not notice you have sunscreen on at all. Acts as a bit of a primer as well. All in all a wonderful product.

                This is the only sunscreen that doesn't break me out or cause red and itchy skin. It also serves as a wonderful primer. I hope this is never discontinued! I highly recommend this for those with super sensitive skin.

                Best primer sunscreen combo out there

                By SRLWorld

                from Denver

                Comments about Clinique City Block Sheer Broad Spectrum SPF 25:

                Love this stuff! It's a great lightweight sunscreen, which is critical with my fair skin. It's also an amazing primer. When I started wearing it I immediately started getting compliments on how great my makeup looked. I didn't change a thing about my makeup, but the city block primer gives it a more polished look.

                Best Lightweight Daily Sun protection out there!!

                Comments about Clinique City Block Sheer Broad Spectrum SPF 25:

                I have extremely fair and sensitive skin so I have tried my fair share of daily moisturizers with SPF in them. My dermatologist recommended this one to me over a multitude of other products and I am so glad I listened to her. I had some minor sun damage on my nose in the form of flaky skin and within a couple of months of putting this on everyday, it went away and has yet to come back. It goes on super easy and within seconds you forget you have put anything on your face. I don't see myself ever switching from this product. Extremely good value for the quality of product!

                • Q:

                  When does a tube expire? I use it for sun protection and I've had a tube for a year...is it no longer good? I had read that spf degrades over time. I wore it outside the other day and I felt I got a sunburn, so wondering if it has expired. I could find no markings on the tube.

                    Hi! This is a very lightweight sunscreen that feels nice on skin under makeup. You would apply a moisturizer under it. If you have dry skin, you may want to try Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion Plus. If you have Oily Skin, you may want to try Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.
                    If you are in need of an entire 3 step skin care system, you should try the entire Clinique 3 step skin care system! Thank you for your question and have a great day!
