Spring has started and Summer is close behind, Time  to think more about sun protection!

City Block daily protector SPF 25 and SPF 40 is well known all over the world, not just in the US.

City Block has been a great daily sunscreen with two SPF levels that is used year-round by women all over the world. It gives great sun coverage plus is also a nice primer under foundation.blogger-image--460683529

This sheer broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen is a lightweight formula that helps keep away perspiration and absorb excess oil. Therefore, perfect as a makeup base and looks great alone as a sunscreen.

Leave it to Clinique to create a sunscreen that is good for daily use as a primer. And the best is its also appropriate for the eye area. Another first!!


I first used this product about a year after I had been working for Clinique. As a makeup artist I was getting a lot of request for this product especially with my lighter skin clients. I also noticed its popularity with the Asian community. They all really need to protect their skin daily and were raving to me how great City Block is with coverage  and protection!

I was curious, first the coverage is awesome and keeps makeup on, second, I noticed that it did not sweat down my face.


I also had a few of my oily skin acne prone customers try it since it is oil free and does not cause breakouts. My customer Kathy, called me after one use and said, “I love this City block, finally a sunscreen that doesn’t break me out”.

There is too SPFs, 25 and 40.

SPF 40 is a high-level daily sunscreen in the same sheer, weightless formula. City Block is good for all skin types even sensitive skin. You can wear both alone or as an invisible makeup primer.
