Clinique City Block Sheer Spf 25 40ml
MEN CAN USE IT TOO!!!
Twelve years ago my dermatologist recommended this as a suncream. Other products caused me to perspire and the oily sweat ran into my eyes. Being almost blind this caused me a further deterioration in my vision and sharp pain. Cityblock sheer provided the answer. Easy to use and apply a tube goes with me every time I travel abroad - and I do use it on the odd sunny day at home. Highly recommended. I would appreciate a discounted offer now and again.. so here's hoping!
Bought this for my daughter who loves Clinique. They cater for all skin types and this cream suits oily skin.
Best Make Up Primer Ever
I love this product, it is a fantastic make up primer, my make up stays put all day long and as it has no yucky ingredients it doesn't make my skin break out. Its a really good value make up primer.
great for protection against enviroment and doubles up as base for under makeup :)
Great product providing great coverage and even better it has an SPF factor
Best primer ever
I use this and find it a brilliant primer for wearing under Bare Minerals as well as protection from the sun. I have a mature but oily complexion and find it makes my make up last a lot better without emphasing wrinkles.
I use this regularly and think it's brill!
Once warned off from Clinique products, I have become a fan of the 25 sfp city block.
It gives a nice coverage and, if like me you hate the feeling (& smell!) of full-fat foundation, this has the effect of a light foundation without you feeling clogged up. It doesn't feel greasy and blends in really well. Enough for a natural daytime look.
If there had to be a down side to this product, I would say if you are using it as a primer, intending on adding proper foundation on top, make sure you test them out together first because depending on what you use as the 'top coat', it can become too heavy and make you look a bit orange around the edges!
All Year Round Staple
This has changed my life. Alright, slightly dramatic - currently the foundation i am using feels like it wears off halfway through the day.. until i came across City Block Sheer. It's main priority is to serve as a sun block for the face, but it acts as an excellent primer!
I, myself have never encountered the world of primers, but City Block Sheer really does provide an excellent base for my foundation. I firstly moisturise and then apply a pea size amount of the City Block to my face, its light and easy to apply, sinking in fast. My initial thoughts were that it would be that the formulation would feel heavy on the skin because its a sun cream, but its light and doesn't make my face feel 'tight'. What's more important that my foundation is easily able to be blended over the top, leaving my face looking like my foundation has just been freshly applied all day without the need to re-powder or wonder where my foundation has ran off to during the day?
Overall, a great primer that works well under any foundation, with the added best bit of it actually being a SPF sun block? Because we are all guilty of not applying sunblock in summer, let alone the winter.
