Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

I switched from the acne clinique foundation to this one and I love it. Only thing I don't like it can get cakey looking if not careful. I just do a pea size and it goes a long way for me. I don't do full coverage cause I am acne prone, but you can build it for full coverage just be careful. After 6 hours I can tell it starts to separate from my face and gets a little blotchy. Compared to the other foundation I feel this one is the easiest too work with and is the closest to my skin color. I have olive warm notes. The even better is to warm and the acne is to cool, if that makes sense.

            I really like this new version of the super balanced foundation. I like the way it looks after applied, but I also use a primer. It lasts pretty well, but again, that may be due to using a primer.

            • Q:

              I currently use Superbalanced Cream Chamois. After being diagnosed with a basal cell on my nose, I realized that I need more protection. I see that the silk has SPF protection. Does the regular superbalanced makeup not have SPF protection? Also, what color in the silk would take the place of Cream Chamois? Thank you.

                A:

                Hi! You are very wise to wear an SPF daily! Great question! SPF in foundation is meant to be added protection for your skin. Based on what our doctors recommend, we suggest using a separate SPF under your foundation and allow your foundation to work as additional protection. We suggest something like Clinique's Smart Daytime Moisturizer, or Clinique's City Block SPF.
                Superbalanced Silk SPF 15 is a very nice formula and feels great on skin. Silk Cream Chamois falls in a similar shade range and offers the same undertone for skin. This is what I suggest based on what you are currently using.
                Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

              I have dry acne-prone skin on my forehead. Will this cause breakouts? My breakouts are moderately dry but the rest of my face is normal and acne free. Any suggestions? (I have fair skin and neutral undertones) Thanks in advance!

                A:

                Hi. Thank you for your interest in Clinique. This foundation should not cause you to breakout. It is oil free and tested to be non acne genic on skin. It was tested with people that also suffer from acne and was proven to not clog pores.
                I suggest trying products like acne solutions clinical clearing gel or Cliniques Clarifying Lotion to remove dead skin that can cause breakouts.
                Silk Porcelain and Silk Shell are the lightest shades with a Neutral undertone in this formula. We offer free color matching and sampling each day in all doors that carry a FULL line of Clinique product and look forward to working with you soon. Have a great day!

                A:

                Hi! This is a nice foundation option. I would start by exfoliating a bit more. If you are noticing flakiness, it is likely that your skin is in need of this on a daily basis, which is normal. You have several options. I am noting several below for you to explore.
                Clinique Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer
                Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3
                Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum

                I believe once your skin is prepped, you will enjoy trying a new foundation. We also offer free color matching and sampling in all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product. We would love to work with you to find the perfect match!
