This is the best invention. So easy to use all in one step. Put it on before makeup. The tint is just enough so I feel covered but my skin is still visible. Skin protection is the way to go with this, which makes the process painless.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I love this product. I used it on vacation in Kauai this Summer. I was too lazy and relaxed to wear any makeup, but it was easy to at least apply this before heading out into the sun. My skin was moisturized and protected.
I know that most people love this product but it wasn't for me - I liked that it was a tinted sunscreen, but it felt like it was sitting on top of my skin (not being absorbed) and if I used a tissue, it looked like I had just wiped off the product (along with the sunscreen), so I was unsure if it was fully protecting my face. It also seemed like it was clogging my pores. I was bummed because it seemed like everyone else loved it. I returned the product and explained my concerns to the Clinique associate and she recommended Superdefense SPF 25 - I have loved this product from day one and would recommend to anyone who didn't like City Block.
Pros: tinted sunscreen
Cons: felt like it wasn't being absorbed by skin, seemed like it was clogging my pores
This is my favorite Clinique product! My skin burns very easily. Even when I am in the sun for long amounts of time, I never get burned with this product. It is just the right consistency, and it doesn't make my sensitive skin break out. The best part is that I can even use it as a tinted moisturizer!
I love it when the sunblock I use does not sting my eyes. This one never runs and causes my eyes to horrible tearing. Also, this works great as a makeup primer. It contains a sheer color which is great to help slightly even out the skin tone.
I love this sunscreen because it protects my skin but isn't heavy or oilly. I use it every day under my foundation & on those days when I'm not wearing make-up. Regardless, it always does a fantastic job protecting my face.
I received a sample of this lotion and used it for about a week and honestly, wasn't too impressed. I wanted to try it for the SPF properties, but those properties in a lotion tend to make it thicker and more sticky than regular lotions. It did make my skin feel nice and soft, but overall I didn't like the feeling of it, especially with makeup. I just use a foundation with SPF instead.
I really love this product. I can use it instead of a base. I just put it on with a little powder on top and off I go. It is not greasy or oily feeling. I have used it for a long time and truly believe that it has saved my skin from sun damage. I can hope that Clinique does not stop making it. I will just die if they do!!!!
First I bought it as sunscreen, but now I just enjoy it more after 2 tubes. I do not wear foundation, but this sheer can do something similar to me--make my skin look even and better. Also the oil-free formula is really comfortable. Love it!
