          Love this product and it's perfect for summer! Looks like my skin but better. Only con is that it emphasized the few spots on my face that are extremely dry. With proper moisturizing and exfoliating it should be fine

                  I have more dry skin than oily and this was perfect. Left a natural glow and felt hydrating without being too "slick". I have acne scars and I found this covers nicely, however I have to apply 2 thin coats to really get the full coverage I need/want. Overall feels light weight and covers with a natural look! Normally I get 100% full coverage, but I found this to be buildable and perfect!!

                        A:

                        Hi! SPF is one difference. The other difference is the texture. Superbalanced Silk contains real silk so it has more of a satin feel. The Superbalanced Silk formula is also suited for a combination to even more of an oilier skin type. Thank you for your question!

                      I have dry sensitive skin with large pores and some redness in my cheeks and nose, would you recommend this product? I have recently tried this product and even using a primer and setting it with powder it seems to wear off after a couple of hours and not help with my dry patches.

                        A:

                        Hi! I am so sorry to hear this! This foundation is an option for you, but there are many options that are available for your skin type. If you are feeling tightness in your skin you may want to try Clinique's Moisture Surge CC Cream, as it will add hydration to your skin.
                        If you are noticing Dry patches or flakiness on the surface, this shows a need for additional exfoliation. You may want to add Clarifying Lotion twice a day to your skin care routine. You could also use a manual exfoliating product like Clinique's 7 day scrub cream.
                        If you are interested in trying the foundation on your skin, we offer free foundation matching each day in Ulta doors that carry a full line of Clinique product. Thank you for reaching out, as we want to make this right and find your perfect foundation at Clinique!

                      I am using the vanilla. I like the golden under tones and dont want to look pink. But, is there a similar color a little lighter than vanilla but not real pale either? vanilla is just slightly too dark.
