Hi! So I LOVE this SPF cream. Feels great and gets the job done. BUT... I can NOT get Clinique to get back to be about missing Special Offers and Bonuses. My last 2 orders (which were well over the $ limit) qualified me for the special offers and extra bonuses... but they did not arrive. They have somehow dropped from my order altogether. It is impossible to get anyone to answer the phone or reply to an email. So... I just gave up but am now reluctant to order again. I know that the bonuses and special offers are not the only reason I shop Clinique but it makes me feel so much better about buying expensive creams!
I was a big fan of previous version of superdefense cream. Usually was buying very dry to dry combination. It was perfect for my skin. In this case based on the reviews I went for oily combination and that was a mistake. Cream feels liquid like, but greasy. It's more like a sun screen than a moisturizer. It smells in a very particular way.. The design of the jar is also different - protective lid is like in moisture surge and not that practical as in the previous version of Super defense.
I decided to switch to Smart. The only problem is that I really like SPF 25.

My skin is super greasy, but also feels tight and dry. This seems more like a straight up sunblock rather than a skin cream with SPF.

Didn't notice a difference in anything. Didn't make me break out either though. 3/5..... not spending $45 on a cream that doesn't do anything.

lots of moisture AND SPF!
CNally from Kentucky
This product feels more like a sunscreen. It doesn't seem to make me oily like other reviews say, but I'm disappointed that it feels more like a sunscreen. I prefer the Fresh Pressed Vitamin C, but that isn't cost friendly either. I'll be trying another brand!

I haven't used Clinique in a long time but the moisturizer i had been using for a while was causing breakouts with wearing a mask. I decided to try the Men's Charcoal Face Wash and this and i have never been so in love with a moisturizer with sunscreen! This makes my skin look so calm and even (likely due to the niacinamide), is chock full on antioxidants and best of all has a matte finish that didn't cause breakouts! I just finished my first jar which lasted 3 months and have purchased another.
Genesis from CA
I was super excited to try this product but sadly it just makes my skin even more oily than it already is and break out. I think it's over priced and haven't seen any benefits to it. Going to return this item. I really wanted to love it.

I hesitated to choose this product when Clinique was giving away mini sizes of some products. I thought it might burn my sensitive skin, because most moisturizers do, especially those with sunscreen. But it doesn't burn! Not even when my skin is compromised! It also has the anti-aging components that I'm after, including SPF. I just wish it were in a bigger jar.

I particularly like the fact that Vc is an ingredient in this day cream, given the benefit to the skin. I also like that it has a little bit of sun protection too, good enough for daily use.

I've used Clinique moisturizer for many years, butcfc this one caused my skin to break out. It also feels heavier than the formula that was discontinue. Never had problems with the old one. I'm switching back to the Dramatically Different lotion for now, or try another brand.
rechelle from SAN DIEGO
I am not sure why they changed the formula as the other one was so much better. This one makes my skin break out and feel very irritated. I wish they would bring the old one back.

I love this product! Use it daily & makes my skin look & feel amazing!
JRosay from US
As a Black woman, I know it is better for me to use a mineral/physical sunscreen but I love this one so much! Although it is a little greasy, I do not mind it at all. (Grease=hydrating healthy skin to me lol) if I look too shiny I just throw on a mattifying primer and go about my day. I feel most sunscreens break me out or cause irritation but this one does not.
Judith from Houston, Tx
I bought the SPF face cream because I want protection from the sun when I run, but I break out when I wear it. Plus, it makes my face a bit shiny, I prefer a matte finish. I prefer the Dramatically different oil free gel.

Good product, make my skin tender and delicate
Evernon15 from Chicago
I tried this product for a day, and by the next day my face had broken out in hives. Three days later, my skin still looks red and bumpy. I have used Clinique products for years and never had a reaction, so I'm really baffled (I don't have any known allergies either). Love the idea for this product but just cannot recommend.

Product with anti ageing benefits along with SPF. What else skin needs along with complete hydration.
MeMe from CT
I really wanted to like this cream. I have oily, acne prone skin. It did not break me out. But, even a small pea size amount made my face so so so greasy within an hour after application. Also the SPF smell was a bit too strong for me but that is a personal preference.
Toto from VA
I like thus product
Ksleigh from Spokane, WA
I have been wanting to try this product for a while now and ended up with a sample of it in my last online order. I was interested in this cream not just due to it's ingredients but all the positive reviews! Unfortunately, it's It was a kind of-rich/creamy texture and took forever to absorb, definitely really greasy feeling on my skin. I should mention that I have oily/combination skin type. If it came in a more gel-like texture, it's definitely a product I would consider purchasing. Would be great for people with dry skin type!
Anna from LA
I bought Clinique product. And they gave me some sample for this product. I used it and feel good for my skin. It's not greasy. And it makes my skin soft and smooth
Steph92 from MT
I love that this cream includes SPF. I spend a lot of time in the sun and I have found this cream to be a perfect addition to my summer routine. It is non-greasy and provides the right amount of moisture.
Triple J from Los angeles
I like this because it has responsible ingredients and a sunscreen for everyday wear. It feels light and moisturizing at the same time. I switched from another very similar product from another company which was twice the price! I do not see a difference in quality though. Thanks Clinique.

I was an avid user of the original Superdefense and keep in mind this is a different formula and product BUT still an amazing one. It is more lightweight and perfect for the summer months. I am combination-oily skin and I didn't find this greasy at all. I love the SPF and the past month it has for sure kept my skin looking awake during quarantine. I don't find it as moisturizing as the previous formula, so I might switch to Very dry to Dry for the colder months.
AmesSkin33 from Washington
I love this moisturizer! Makes my skin feel more awake and gives me an over-all glow. It's very lightweight and goes a long way. No more dullness, and gives me a bright look! I use the superdefense city block on top of it and have never had better skin.
Ms from Texas
It's okay. I'd rather the moisture surge gel instead. This just feels like $45 sunscreen. No noticeable changes to my skin.
