Most Helpful Positive Review Completely invisible
I LOVE this sunblock! It absorbs in and feels like nothing on my skin. No sheen, no white film on my skin, no sunblock smell or taste. This product is truly a sunblock I can wear every day without compromising comfort or risking an oily film getting on my clothes or jewelry. A must have part of my daily skincare.
Most Helpful Critical Review Too expensive for a tiny bottle
I use sunscreen every day on my face and prefer physical sunscreens to chemical ones. I heard that Clinique put out a purely mineral sunscreen and immediately ordered it. However, both on here at Ulta and on the clinique website there is no mention of the size of the product. I was immensely disappointed to pull a tiny 1 oz. bottle out of the box. I'm returning it since I can't justify spending almost $30 for a tiny bottle that looks like a sample. I go through sunscreen quickly and this is just too expensive for daily use.

This is the best mineral sunscreen I have worn. It spreads easily, it does not leave the skin oily or white.
Not invisible for me!!
fari from Seattle
I like all the Clinique sunscreens but I chose this one because of the invisibility claim, But it was too white for me :(
No stinging in the eyes!
Violet79 from South Dakota
I hate greasy sunscreen but this goes on so nicely. Zero grease, zero filmy feeling, zero scent, zero sting, zero sun damage. I have fair skin so I can't attest to any white cast but I do not see anything settled in my pores. I sure wish this came in the 4 ounce size like the body version.
Feels good on my skin.
Ms. Sandi from Warren, Vermont
This sunscreen is not as thick as most and does not leave a heavy, sticky feeling on my face. The packaging is convenient to carry and you can get just the right amount out at a time.
Leaves white cast, too $$$
40withDrySkin from Seattle, WA
Compared to many other mineral sunscreens, this is more lightweight and spreadable which is nice. It has a light yellow tint but still leaves a bit of white cast on my light-medium (NC20) skin. It works ok under makeup in my experience. Overall it's just ok, not great and ultimately it's way too pricey for what is it.
My daily suncreen
ACRA from Michigan (MI)
After reading about how much aging can be attributed to photodamage and visible light I've worn this everyday. It might seem like overkill but I like the added protection. It's very easy to wear: no irritation, no stinging, no weird smell.
I find it best if I mix it with a little Moisture Surge, otherwise I feel a bit dry. A little goes a long way. I use roughly a little less than a dime size amount daily. I'm also ghost pale: if you're blessed with melanin you might need to blend this with makeup. When I wash my face at night the whiteness of this sunscreen is very, very apparent.
I'd love a larger size, Clinique! This size is cute and lasts me 5-7 weeks but I'd like another option.
Made my face itchy and bumpy
Nancy from California
I have sensitive skin but all of the Clinique products I've used have worked without causing problems. I assumed it would be the same with the sunscreen. First time using it today and my face felt a bit itchy but I didn't pay much attention to it. When I arrived home I looked in the bathroom mirror and saw tiny red bumps all over my face. I only wore the sunscreen for three hours. I had such high hopes for it to work, but I'll have to return it.
Love love love it
Patty from Wyoming
This is the first sunscreen for my face that I haven't wanted to instantly wash off. Very lightweight.
red80 from western ny
I am a typical blue-eyed redhead with very sensitive, easily burnt, pale skin. As far as I can tell, this works as SPF (I am not "testing" this; I also wear hats, prefer shade, and avoid being out midday). But it's worth 5 stars because it's the only sunscreen I've ever worn that doesn't irritate my face. I use Blue Lizard on my kids and on the rest of my body, but on my face it's very irritating, perhaps because of larger particles, sweat going in my eyes? I dunno, I just know I like this stuff for my face. No rashes. No stinging. Yes, it's a little bit whitish, but I'm pale, so it doesn't bother me too much. Especially if I wear makeup, it's imperceptible. Looks absolutely ridiculous on my brown-skinned husband though!
Complaints: I ordered (backordered) three months ago and it's still not in stock!?!?!?!
Also, it's soooo tiny. And expensive.
Makes my skin look photo ready
Marsha from WV
I don't wear make up so I have been using this sunscreen not only to protect my face from sun damages but also a good alternative for a smooth and even toned skin. It really feels lightweight.
Lightweight and OK under makeup
Cynthia the sewer from Colorado
Bought this mostly to use as a base layer under liquid foundation. It works pretty well for that, with only a very slight sheen to it. Since it leaves a very light white remnant, I would not often wear it alone without makeup. That's because I'm already pretty fair, and the additional whiteness would make me appear ghostlike.
Amazing for my sensitive skin!
AZmama from Scottsdale, AZ
This is one of the only sunscreens that doesn't bother my skin! It goes on smooth and turns invisible right away. The only problem is the size of the bottle, because it is small enough to be a sample size! I live in AZ, and reapply often. Clinique, please make this in a bigger bottle!
Won't burn your eyes
S Long from Texas
I've had melanoma on my face and I struggled to find sunblock that wouldn't burn my eyes when I sweated. This stuff is amazing. I wish it came in a larger amount.
Non Greasy, Gentle
Medusagemini from MD
It's hard for me to want to wear sunblock even though I know it's good for me. I have rosacea, use prescription medication, get laser treatments and I'm fair-skinned African American; obviously sunblock everyday is a NECESSITY. But all the types I tried before Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Fluid made me look like a ghost, had an overwhelming smell and broke me out. Clinique's sunblock saved my sensitive skin. It spreads thinly and has no smell. My face doesn't react to it, it even looks better because somehow the fluid mattifies my typically shiny t-zone. I say this about everything I get from Clinique, but this really is my must-have product.
Just What I Wanted
HilCO from Colorado
It has been difficult for me to find a mineral (or any for that matter) face sunscreen that doesn't leave me oily and breaking out. I've worn this a few times now and it's great- not too heavy and actually gives a matte effect. I wouldn't say that it's invincible but what spf 50 mineral product can be? I wish more of their sun products were mineral based and that they would make mineral version of the Even Better Lotion.
Jen B from SD
It leaves a little white cast but it's so amazing it's worthy!!!! Love the high spf and knowing it's healthier than chemical sunscreen. Getting my third bottle now
Recommended by a friends doctor. She has a skin condition
Pam from Benton AR.
It adds bit of pink tint as spreading on face but blends as spread it...
Good that need small amount!
ManMan from MD
I bought this product about a month ago and what I really like about it is that it doesn't clog my pores, it's lightweight and doesn't have the greasy feel. The only issue I have with this products is that it leaves a white residue all over my face which I tried to get rid of but can't.
Lori from Las Vegas
Surprisingly moisturizing. It's not a thin lotion but kind of thick like a real cream moisturizer. It doesn't make me red or itchy so I like it. A little pricey but they all are.
Yasmeen from Texas
It's good but not the best and the size is definitely not worth the price. Love Clinique products but just not this one.
Aleilei from Kentucky
I really wanted to like this product. My dermatologist recommended I find a daily sunscreen so of course, I came to Clinique. It's too thick and leaves my skin feeling heavy and sticky.
Mary-June from WoodlandHills, CA
I really like this sunscreen. It is like a protective shield on my face as supposed to the other sunscreens that has chemicals that sink into your skin. However it is just too expensive for the amount you get. It states on the box that you should apply this liberally and reapply at least every two hours. If you actually do that your little one ounce bottle will be empty by the end of the day. As a Clinique lover I am very disappointed that Clinique would do that to their devoted customers.
Best sunscreen for face
Atari from USA
I really like using this sunscreen on my face as it is non-greasy and does not clog my pores. It truly protects my face as advertised. No irritations or breakouts.
Sunscreen fluid for face
Liana from Delaware
This lotion is not heavy. I like it very much
Anna from LA
Before I go out, I put this on my face. It can protect my skin from sun. This lotion is not heavy. It can use it any time
