      Comments about Clinique Superdefense Daily Defense Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I thought I had very dry skin until I spoke with a woman at the Clinique counter. She suggested I might be overhydrating which would be causing flaking. She recommended I try this product, but for combination/oily skin. My skin has been unbelievably better ever since. No flaking, clear, and even some redness is gone. I cannot recommend this product enough. It's been a game changer for me!

        It works well, it doesn't spread on smoothly. I need to use more than I normal would to get it to cover my entire face. If they could fix that then this would be the perfect product

          Comments about Clinique Superdefense Daily Defense Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

          I was in my local Ulta looking for a face moisturizer. I was suffering from flaky skin and what I assume was dryness. I spoke to the girl working at the Clinique counter who took one look and suggested I try the combination skin version of this moisturizer. She felt I was over moisturizing my skin by buying products for dry/extremely dry skin. She was right! This stuff has been a godsend! Moisturizes my skin perfectly and my flaky, "dry" looking skin has greatly improved. I feel it really helps with balancing my color too.

                      Hi! Clinique Superdefense Daily Defense Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 is a great choice for "just walking around" sun exposure. If you're on vacation or will be out for several hours, opt for Clinique Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Face Cream instead. Thanks for letting us be a part of your routine.

                    Is it safe to leave on overnight or is there the possibility that it might clog or cause more acne?

                      A:

                      Hi! There is no harm in using this at night. The sunscreen is in a floating matrix on the surface of your skin, so as long as it is the correct formula, you can also wear it at night if you choose to do so. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                      This product is paraben free. It does contain low percentages of both Chemical and Physical Sunscreen ingredients. You may be interested in Clinique City Block 25, as it is a chemical free sunscreen.
