didn't work well with my make up
AlrightThis product is good for when you're wearing no makeup, otherwise I find it makes foundation and powders harder to apply evenly. Other than that, this product is a great sunscreen that provides moisture to the face
Still awesomeI’ve had this on rotation since my early teens (mum used it) and it’s still good now in my 30’s. Does have quite a tint but it works in well even on fair skin. Excellent for no makeup days (can pill under some foundations, and doesn’t work well with powder on top.)
Great SPF, no smell!I love this SPF because it doesn't have any smell, I dislike the smell of sunscreen! It feels great on the skin and makes a great makeup primer.
Best Sunscreen for the Face.I have been using Clinique's City Block for over twenty years and will continue to do so. Very confident in using it with or without makeup. Sheer tint which I like and not at all greasy. I have a normal skin type. I also apply to my neck area. You do not need to reapply continuously like other face sunscreens. Sulphate and fragrance free. This is one of my wholly frail daily skin care products!
Love the light coverageI love the nice sheer coverage it gives, like a BB cream but with SPF. I wear it instead of foundation.
Great for under foundationI use this as a primer or by its self for my daily SPF protection. I find it does an amazing job
didn't work well with my make upin my opinion its quite expensive considering its size. it was recommended to use it like a primer but it didn't mix well with my beyond perfecting foundation so I only use this now by it self when im having a no make up day.
Eh... not for meThis is a nice product, however I am so picky with SPF products. It does the job and have a slight colour to it which is okay but goes away once rubbed into the skin. I do not love the smell and the texture on the skin is not my favourite. However, I am super picky and hate any scent of SPF!
Nice formulaThe formula to this is really nice in the sense it feels beautiful on, not heavy, sticky or greasy. The only thing I don’t like is that is washes my olive skin out a bit as it has a bit of a white cast affect, so when I wear this, I put mineral powder over the top to put some colour back in my face. Other than that, it’s nice but not my favourite spf I’ve tried
What happened to my BFF Super City Block 30+Sorry can't comment on this particular product. I've only ever bought the above. Now I have to catch the bus into town to check and make sure you can still get the above. If this product were the above my comment would be yes it is def a great product. I'm 44 and I've been using Super City Block since I was about 37 -and people still think I look 37!
Amazing primerI use as a primer sometimes and it’s AMAZING
GreatNice tint, and color correction sits well under makeup too
EXCELLENT!I have been using the Clinique City Block for twenty five years. I couldn't live without it and use it underneath my makeup everyday. It has a slight tint to it, which I like as it evens out any redness on my skin. I don't need to use another sunblock on my face as it contains Zinc. One of the best products on the market without a doubt.
Great sunscreenI have been using this sunscreen for almost 2 years now. Gives good daily protection and the colour just adds a slight tint to my skin. Can get a little greasy sometimes but doesnt cause breakouts. Works fantastic as a primer under makeup with the added SPF protection! Will continue to buy :)
Good daily physical sunscreenThis has been my daily sunscreen for years. Has a lovely texture with a very slight tint and a matte finish. I have sensitive skin and react to most chemical sunscreens so this product is great for me as it is a physical sunscreen but not too heavy. As it's only a low SPF, it's not good if you plan on spending any significant amount of time in the sun but is a perfect daily base level of protect...Read More
Overrated 'classic'This didn't quite work for me - too much like a paste and the SPF is too low (25 only). I like the tint to offset any whiteness from the zinc but I found it hard to spread easily and feels thick like a paste even though it's labelled sheer. Wouldn't recommend for the price point and performance.
ShieldGood protective shield against environmental damage
Great productGreat product - I quite like how it leaves my skin, however the tint is a little too dark for my very pale skin (definitely at first anyway!). Absorbs quite easily - just make sure you rub it in properly everywhere!
Great Daily SPFGreat daily SPF with a slight tint so no white cast. Can be a little greasy but nothing that a mattifying powder over the top couldn't fix. Had no issues with scent or breakouts whilst using it and found a tube lasts a far while. A great all rounder for anyone looking for decent daily SPF.
Coverage and protectionThis sunscreen has a tint to offset any white cast that would be caused by the zinc in it. As it is tinted I haven't bothered putting any foundation on top of it, and I find it does offer enough coverage for me (a concealer could be used on any spots). I have combination skin and this has not caused me to breakout and feels comfortable - with the added benefit of a bit of colour and coverage to pe...Read More
Excellent sunscreen with sheer tintThis is my daily sunscreen and has been for over 3 years. The sheer tint is enough coverage for my daytime look but may be too sheer for some. However it still makes an excellent sunscreen. I love this product and recommend it to others - I’ve even got my dad using it. I have normal to dry skin which is prone to hormonal acne. I apply translucent powder afterwards and have no excess shine all day....Read More
Holy grail!My skin is sensitive towards chemical sunscreen, so this City Block Sheer SPF25 is a godsend because it is a physical sunscreen. Works well under makeup and doesn't feel greasy. Will purchase again and again
Be aware that Clinique has another sunscreen, Super City Block SPF30+, which does contain chemical sunscreen octinoxate.
ExcellentAll hail City Block! I prefer the SPF 40 for my super sun-sensitive skin, even though it has a thicker, chalkier texture - but the SPF 25 is good for winter, when I still need sun protection that doesn't break me out. I buy a couple of tubes of both the thicker SPF40 and the sheer SPF25 every year and they keep me covered. These are probably the only sunscreens that don't block my pores or give me...Read More
