It comes in a yellow coloured plastic squeeze tube with flip flop cap which is sturdy enough to protect the cream from spilling out.
PS: Clinique use Solar Smart technology in their sunscreens which helps in broad spectrum protection & prevention against skin ageing.
The cream is on thicker side as most of the sunscreens but gets spreads & absorbed into the skin easily with slight rubbing and settles down as completely matte finish. It doesn’t leave any cast or greasiness on skin nor does feel heavy. Can be used on face but you also have face cream variant in Clinique. It sits back on the skin without any wear off due to sweat or water & is a good option for beach vacation. Though being matte on skin it does keeps my skin hydrated without any uneasiness. I generally wear this over my body lotion but in few instances where I applied this alone didn’t caused any discomfort to my dry skin.
The cream is very much comparable to my Neutrogena dry touch sunblock with just a difference in the texture. Neutrogena is not as thick as this one & except for that I don’t find anything special about this Clinique cream. Gives effective protection from sun for good 4-6 hours without any need of reapplication but I prefer retouch ups after every 4 hours with high SPF sunscreens too & this I was on a beach holiday in fuming sun. I did dared not to reapply this on one single day after which I noticed some tanning on my arms.
Overall I can say that Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock is a good dupe of this formula which is far more affordable. But if you love to pamper your self with some high end brands once in a while you can check this out. I got mine because I ran out of my Neutrogena one in middle of the vacation.
- Long duration sun protection & helps resolving tanning issues.
- Thick & completely matte formula.
- No wear off with sweat or water & stays intact on skin.
- Moisturizing enough on my dry skin.
- Doesn’t make skin heavy or greasy.
- The price ofcourse! (but then its Clinique!) You get same results with much affordable Neutrogena one.
- Oily skin females may feel the formula bit heavy on their skin. So test it before buying.
An overpriced sun protection formula which is very much comparable to the economical options like Neutrogena. Though no complaints with the formula & effectiveness still it doesn’t do anything special as compared to other High SPF claimed drugstore brands.
