Comments about Clinique Super City Block Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

I keep coming back to this spf, after trying other stuff. Good job clinique by making this sunscreen. But i also have a complaint about the price of this product. It is very pricey for only 1 oz, considering the fact that sunscreen is a daily use thing.

      The description says it's sheer but it's not!!! It wears like a foundation that's 3 shades too light! Like the oil control though.

        I actually began to use it mixed with my foundation and I prefer it that way. i do not wear full coverage so it works well with me, not sure how it will with others.
        I don't like that it is tinted and will cause a problem with dark skin tones. Let's get it together Clinique, all means all. :-)

            Was recommended to me by a friend. Definitely more expensive than the Neutrogena I used to use that I can't find anymore, but I like that it has a small tint to it since some days that is all I put on my face. I feel confident in Clinique's ingredients, it feels good on my skin and not greasy, and it works!

                    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

                      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!
