It is a ice cream. I like to use it. But after 3 days I got some skin problems (red, itchi). After a week, some skin on my face starts to fall down.
Isn't the first cream that this happens, but I wasn't expecting it from Clinique!!! Speacially because I got a long very well with others.
I have this product in the "very dry to dry" formula, which might explain some of my negative reaction to it. The two biggest problems I have with this product are as follows: it feels really greasy on my skin and doesn't absorb well and I don't like dipping my fingers into product. I'd much rather this came in a squeeze or pump bottle.
That said, I love that it has a decent SPF and might work better in the winter when my skin is more dry. I also kind of like the smell, unlike other reviewers. It's definitely a synthetic-type smell, although I don't find it obnoxious (and I'm pretty sensitive to smells)
This is a decent moisturizer, it feels light and doesn't make me oily. The downside is that the SPF won't last in this container, BUT you will get the icky SPF smell all the way through. I don't like the scent at all, it smells like generic body sunscreen. Anyway, I do like it as a moisturizer, but I don't like the fact that it says you're getting sun protection when you're not.
So i have the most sensitive skin on the planet...I bought this a month ago as i was desperately seeking SPF protection and a good moisturizer i could wear under my foundation (or one that would repair my skin). This isn't moisturizing enough for me, yes it sinks in to the skin fast however it doesn't do much for dryness. If you have dry skin i would avoid this.
I also had a reaction around my most sensitive area (near my eyes) after being in the sun and then falling asleep with this on, I will be giving this back tomorrow and hopefully will get a refund. I was lucky to buy the smaller size which was a limited edition.
I am still on the search for a great SPF hydrating moisturizer...
I gave to this moisturizer so many chances to prove that it worths its 50euros! Light hydration, a silky-soft matte finish, sun protection! But i really can't see the results of this moisturizer because i can't understand its role! Well, i think that environmental stress is not something that a moisturizer can give a solution! Sorry Clinique, not this time!
THE best moisturiser for my skin! And I've used A LOT of them!
I use the comb-oily formulation as it's oil free, so make sure you get skin typed before you purchase. It goes on like a dream, quickly absorbs and smells amazing. Clinique is 100% fragrance free so sometimes you just smell the ingredients as they as, but since they use the finest quality of those ingredients it's never bad just sometimes blah. Superdefense however is lovely :)
This is for anyone who wants a good moisturiser plus a high SPF. It is packed full on antioxidants and I've noticed a huge improvement than when I was just using my DDMG by Clinique. I use 3-step religiously, and anti blemish ones when I have breakout. Adding this and my Clinique serum has improved my skin texture and its glowing and tighter :)
One of the worst moisturizers i have used!
when applying it couldnt stop bulking up and flaking on my skin. Went back and asked (unfortunately in Greece no money back guaranty) the clinique sales girl and she told me it was because i needed exfoliating! When told her i exfoliate an average of 1-2 times a week and dont thing that that was the problem and that i was not willing to exfoliate more to get this product to work properly she had no clue why it reacted like that on my skin.
One of my favourites. I use it as an anti-stress cream and if I go to the beach. Doesn't leave my skin greasy or sticky, never had any problems with it at all, using since 2010.
I love love love what this does for my skin. I've tried a lot of clinique moisturizers and this is probably my favourite because of the SPF and the feel. Don't let the consistency fool you - it's SO light and absorbs right into the skin, no greasiness. I'm serious!! You hardly even need to work it into the skin. Amazing. It is pretty expensive and there isn't a pump but just be sure to wash your hands before you dip your fingers in (which is what you should do anyway before you touch your face) and you're good to go. Definitely worth the money.
I bought it today, so I don't have such an experience, but now that I put it all over my face, I feel that my face for the first time in my life, is not greasy! I have an oily skin, so although I used to buy moisturizers for normal to combination skin, everytime I put the creme, my skin was oily. I'll make an update after a few weeks, to tell you something more, but for now, I would say that this one for combination to oily skin is really aborbed fast by skin.
