I got a deluxe sample from Clinique last night and used this today...it's much creamier and less chalky looking against my skin compared to the spf40 which I bought first. Still not comfortable on ~feels like there's a blanket of film over my face. Throughout the day my skin felt itchy in spots & like it was being leeched of moisture. I blame the long ingredients list which includes plenty of plant extracts including rosemary (my skin hates this, and lavender too) -- way too many chances for irritation. When I got home, I examined my face in the mirror and there are two small whiteheads already starting on my chin- ARGH!!!! No more City Blocks for me! My sensitive skin can't handle these sunscreens :(
