        I have very fair skin and visit the dermatologist at least yearly to check for skin cancers. I have been using this product every day for about a year and last time I went to have my skin checked the dermatologist said that my face looked fabulous. I had fewer freckles and less visible sun damage than the last time I was in the office. She told me that whatever I was doing, I should keep it up. Thank you Clinique!!

        I have used many Clinique products over the years, and was excited to try this one because of all the positive reviews......I am sorry to say I am not impressed.

        The Super City Block is NOT water proof, which is a HUGE disappointed to individuals who are active. Please re-formulate to make an "active" version, I would gladly pay more for it!

        Additionally, my normally oily and well hydrated skin is suddenly flaking off and this is the only product in my skin routine that has changed. My eyes also water more, and my skin is much more sensitive to other products such as exfoliants. This is the only product that I can attribute these reactions to.

        Great value tented sunscreen

        By 

        from Calgary

        Comments about Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

        It's the first time for me to have a tented sunscreen that doesn't need a foundation. I love how light this sunblock is. I would give it five star if I can choose the colour because I have very fair skin tone.

        I love this product! If you don't like to wear too much makeup on your face and are looking for something to give you a nice glow and a light tint to even out your skin tone, with SPF too, this is for you! I'm really enjoying this for the summer months when I like to keep the coverage minimal. I'll be repurchasing this in the future when I run out.

        Best Product Ever!

        By 

        from Marcellus, NY 13108, USA

        Comments about Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

        This is by far the best product I have ever used. It has everything: great natural sun protection and vitamins and antioxidants. Best of all, there is NO greasy feel. It dries to a beautiful matte finish that evens out my skin tone, all without that ghastly white pallor that most sunblocks give you. I wish I had tried it a long time ago!

        Pretty Pleased

        By 

        from California

        Comments about Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

        Overall, I'm pretty darn pleased with this product! I have incredibly fair skin and it's protected it better, and more reliably than most other products. I love that it's light and smooths on so easily. Since, especially in the summer, I tend to run a bit shiny across the nose and t-zone, I usually finish things off with a powder. It goes on nice and sheer and keeps things from looking or feeling too heavy in the super-warm summer months. I detest the feel of sun screen and cannot tell you the number of times I've decided it was worth the extra effort of putting on a bit of makeup vs the alternative of slathering on regular sunscreen--and yet I get the same (maybe even better!) protection from it!

        (Some people have sensitivities to SPF around the eyes, so if you try this, be aware that your skin may be different than mine). This stuff even works great as a shadow primer, so my eyelids and eye area are protected as well. Since most eye creams don't have an SPF these days (due to some people's sensitivities, which makes perfect sense), this as an alternative is a huge relief! If you've ever gotten a sunburn on your eyelids, you know what I'm talking about! ;)

        Would absolutely recommend this to a friend, especially if that friend were generally against sunscreen, but I don't want to see them go through the awfulness of what comes with sun damage!

        I highly recommend this to everyone who doesn't need that much of a high coverage. Apply this and some powder and all done! It'll even out the skin colour and will last for the entire day.

        Great sunblock and primer for makeup

        By 

        from Macon, GA

        Comments about Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

        I've used City Block before, but it's been a while. I am riding my bike outside and was looking for a sunblock that could be worn over gel- based medications prescribed by my derm, but would also do well under make-up (Superbalanced Silk), and not pill. Most of us know that some products are not compatible. Bottom line: This does a great job blocking the sun, goes well over 2 gel-based meds, and Moisture Surge Intense, then with foundation on top. No pilling, does not irritate my sensitive skin, and helps grip foundation and concealer. Try it!

        Best Sunscreen - Hands Down!

        By 

        from San Diego

        Comments about Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

        I've tried numerous facial sunscreens, and this is my favorite, by far. It's lightweight, blends easily (both in texture and color), does not irritate my skin or leave my greasy. It's ideal for everyday use after a light moisturizer. From a makeup standpoint, it works on its own or under powder or foundation. The tint is incredibly subtle but effective to prevent the typical whiteness of mineral sunscreen. I order it well in advance because I'm always afraid it will be discontinued. Clinique, please keep City Block on your shelves forever.

        Love!!

        By 

        from Kansas

        Comments about Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

        This sunscreen is a perfect base under my make-up or alone! I love that it is SPF 40 (perfect for the HOT Kansas sun in the summer time and for the bright sun in the winter). Good texture and I like the bit of color tint so I can see where I�m applying it. Also, doesn�t make my sinsitive, acne-prone skin break out! Perfect. __

        Where does it say it�s tinted???

        By 

        from Utah, USA

        Comments about Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

        On opening, I was confused to find that this is a tinted sun block, which I did not see anywhere in the description. I gave it a try as I�m on vacation in an extremely sunny place and needed SPF for my face- plus, I thought, perhaps it goes on and you can�t see the tint at all. Nope. I�m very fair and this definitely changes the color of my complexion in an unfortunate way. It�s like having the wrong shade of partial coverage foundation. I wonder what it does to anyone who is not very fair- maybe it blends in just fine, though it�s hard to imagine how it could work for all skin tones other than fair. I put foundation/the rest of my makeup on top of it and I looked like I had done a poor job with heavy makeup (which I basically just wear a Clinique foundation, concealer and powder). Really bummed, especially at the price, and the fact that I didn�t have a way to get a good sunscreen for my sensitive skin here as an alternative.
