    Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

    I was hesitant to try clinique makeup, but I'm so glad I did! I don't use very much to get good coverage on my entire face. I'm not into heavy makeup so I usually go light-medium coverage. I suffer from oily skin and was worried that the foundation would be too cakey but it wasn't!

      Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

      Same amount of product as all other, much pricier foundations, & wears so much better! I don't feel like I have anything on when I wear this foundation. It has amazing pigment, & my skin looks so much healthier since I've started using it. Only drawback is getting it out of the bottle.

              I have combination, acne prone skin. I decided to try this because it has no spf. Spf makes my skin break out so I avoid it completely. This makeup is extremely messy and made my skin very oily. The coverage was light and didn't cover anything. I don't have any breakouts currently or any spots that need to be covered. I usually use younique where it covers everything! (Dark circles, freckles, pimples, etc..) this did not. I'm trying to stop using younique because I hate having to order it but if it works then I guess I'll stick with it for now. The clinique just wasn't for me.

              I can't remember why I stopped using Clinique but I'm so glad I tried it again! Feels great on my skin all day. The color is perfect and doesn't settle in my wrinkles. I have been using bare minerals for years but haven't been happy with how it made my face look so wrinkly even after using primer.

                    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!

                    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!
