I’d read so much about the new formula for Clinique sunscreen I knew I had to try it. I’d never tried the old formula but I loved the bright yellow packaging the new Clinique sunscreen comes in. I wish more companies would introduce colour into their skincare packaging – white gets boring 😛
There are a few types of Clinique sunscreen available but I opted for the face cream. I’ve explained why I prefer cream textures in sunscreen previously – in a nutshell, its better for my slightly dry skin. Although its a cream, it isn’t heavy and neither is it oily. In fact it sits quite nicely on my skin and feels comfortable.
I don’t get oily in the day, and neither did I break out. For those sensitive to scent, you might be happy to know that Clinique’s sunblock has no scent at all. That’s a big plus point in my books too.
My one caveat is that I tried this in the SPF30 PA+++ version. So the texture was comfortable on my skin. However, it is a fact that the higher the SPF the thicker the cream will be so the SPF50 face cream may just be a tad thicker in texture and may not suit everyone. I tested the SPF50 at the counter – its not super thick and might suit me too.
