            I love this product to use as my daily SPF. I will say, I didn't expect it to be tinted, which I think could be an issue for darker complexions. I am very fair so it works for me and I haven't had any issues, but I would recommend sampling it in the store before you purchase (or be prepared you might need to return it) to make sure it blends into your skin well if you have a darker complexion.

            For some reason, this sunscreen is tinted and I am dark skinned so this sunscreen appears white on my skin and makes me look ashy. very dissappointed.

            Comments about Clinique Super City Block Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

            I am a loyal Clinique customer and the Super City Block is my summer and winter go to first application for coverage besides the stronger 50spf Broad Spectrum. I use Super City Block sometimes as my only tint on my skin to cover the imperfections and light freckles. However if you aren't as pale as I am, then it won't really cover much.

                  Hi,

                  Could you please make me understand between Clinique super city block spf 40 and Mineral sunscreen fluid for face dog 30/50.

                  I m male and have dry skin. Clinique suggested me number 2 of their 3 step system. Suggest me best of Clinique's sunscreen and do me a favour because my skin never liked sunscreens.

                  Regards
                  Nag

                    Great question. Clinique Super City Block SPF 40 is lightweight and acts as a makeup primer. It can be used on the face and around the eye area to prevent sun damage to skin. Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Fluid for Face SPF 30 or SPF 50 is a 100% mineral sunscreen designed for the most sensitive of skins. Try Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Fluid for Face SPF 30 or SPF 50 for your skin type. We can't wait to hear what you think!

                  Hello, I am looking for an SPF that I can use with the Acne Solutions line. I am wondering what texture the Super City Block is because I got the BIY foundation and I am hoping to blend it into this SPF.
