(I've used a lot of facial sunscreens lately and prefer mineral. I finally settled on Badger tinted Rose SPF 20. Love it. But I've noticed that it tends to sting my Retin-A sensitive skin. I'm assuming it's all of those essential oils. (Bear in mind I had no problems with it before I started using Retin-a). That coupled with me wanting a higher SPF on some days caused me to search for something new.As for make up, I mix some of my Superbalanced foundation in whatever sunscreen I'm using when I want coverage. So whatever I'm using needs to play nicely as far as mixing products)Super City Block uses both physical and chemical. It's pricy for a 1.4 oz tube. Ingredients are good, IMO. Clinique claims, like with most of their products, that it is suitable for sensitive skin so I thought I would try it. My verdict: Good stuff. Spreads easily, mixes well with foundation. I didn't experience any balling up. No real smell, and the after feel is just slightly dewy but not greasy. It has a bit of a blurring effect when worn alone, but doesn't offer any real coverage. It did not irritate my skin in any way. Nor does it sting my eyes. Consistency is that of a thin lotion. The tint works well with my skintone, so I don't get any ashy results. I also don't use a lot, just about a pea size amount for my face and a bit more for my neck. It can be mixed with foundation to help with color matching, too. I don't find it super moisturizing, but I don't care. It's sunscreen. Will repurchase.

This contains a generous amount of antioxidants including vitamin C in addition to the high mineral SPF, which means I don't have to spend additional money on an antioxidant serum. The mineral SPF is what attracted me to this product. Chemical sunburns burn my face even if I wait 30 minutes after cleansing. The only chemical sunscreen that I can wear is the LaRoche-Posay SPF 15 moisturizer, which is excellent but doesn't have a high enough SPF for my moderately fair skin. Super City Block works as a primer if you apply a moisturizer under it. It's also cheap compared to most department store sunscreen products. This is a winner as far as I am concerned.

This is not for people with Ance-Prone/Senstivie skin. I went to my local Clinique counter in Boots last week and asked for a sun screen that was suitable for my skin type: Acne prone/Sensitive. The girl recommended City Block and swore that it wouldn't break me out and that it was more than suitable for my skin. I put it on the next day, it felt great on my skin, didn't make it oily and I loved the colour-corrector. Fast forward a week later and my face is covered in cystic ance and little whiteheads.I had been using their 3-step Anti-Blemish Solutoins for about a month and it had cleared my face up a lot and then this product ruined all of that. If you have Acne-prone, sensitive skin, this product is not for you.

I was just introduced to this at a Clinique event my friend signed me up for at Ulta. I have been looking for SPF that wasn't really thick. I had been using Cetaphil's oil free moisturizer with SPF 30 and it is very thick. Not only that but if I sweat and try to wipe sweat out of my eyes, it gets in my eyes and it burns.So far I have not experienced that with Super City Block. I was told by the Clinique girl that it was made to be worn underneath makeup and can act as a primer as well. I do have to apply moisturizer separately but so far that is my only dislike. Other than taking a separate step for moisturizer, I am liking this product.

Caused me to break out a couple of days after first use. Have tried it a few times and always caused breaks out. Not good for oily acne prone skin.

I got a sample of this with a clinique gift bag and I had no hopes about it at all. But looks like it has a new updated formula and it made wonders for me in the july heat. It wears really well, I don't shine for hours and the sheer coverage is exactly what I'm looking for. I will definitely purchase a full size as soon as I run out of the 15 ml sample.

I really wanted to like this sunscreen. I like the colour and the colour correcting element that it offers without offering too much coverage. I like that it doesn't have an overwhelming smell, and doesn't leave a white cast after applying it. Unfortunately, this sunscreen makes me breakout with really bad cystic acne, so I can't wear it anymore.

I think I am on my third full tube of this. I originally discovered it in one of those tiny sample size tubes I had received as part of a free gift. I work in international development so end up in very hot countries where I end up not wearing too much makeup. This product is actually fantastic. You know you are protected from the sun, which I definitely need or I tan 6 different shades on my face, and it evens out your skin. I wear it alone, no foundation. On days where I don't have it on I usually wear liquid foundation so its that or this - but this really does the trick and I'm beginning to prefer it over foundation. It takes about 10 minutes to soak in, and my skin is glowing after. I usually place some on the back of my hand (a dab less than the size of a dime in diameter) and blend it on to my face using my fingers. I'm of South Asian background so I medium brown skin and the tint I guess works. In the past year I have used it in countries where the temperature and humidity levels have been extreme and this product is my go-to. Highly recommended.

Great shortcut for those, um, greasy summer days. The trial-and-error application is worth it considering how it pays off later. I love this stuff. Only reason it doesn't get 5 lipsticks is because it's still basically an expensive tinted moisturizer. I hate that BB with SPF products I'll have to reapply within a couple of hours are priced like they're long-wear foundations. But, it's a great BB cream that moisturizes enough that it replaces my separate moisturizer step in the warmer months (hot, humid summers where I live). The trick to this is not judging the amount you need by how it looks immediately upon application. Too much looks streaky. Too little means ineffective sun protection. I find it best when worked in a little with fingers then dabbed with fingetips to even out, rather than with a brush. It will look a little pale and shiny at first, but soaks in well within 10 minutes. It does what a BB/tinted moisturizer is supposed to do - evens out skin tone and provides sun protection, except this one actually moisturizes effectively. Doesn't irritate me. My favorite thing about it is that if I need a little more coverage, I can powder the T-zone without City Block turning into a pore-highlighting medium.

$24.50 USD. OMG, this is perfect! The very lightly tinted sunblock is very matte and doesn't leave a greasy film. The tint is very minimal - you can't even tell there''s any color so don't worry about how dark it looks in the tube. I'm very pale, and you can't tell that I put on anything. It absorbs instantly so you don't have to worry about your foundation / concealer caking over it. Texture and cost-wise, this is much better than the face sunblocks I've tried from CD, La Mer and Clarins. HG!
