Skin Care Review: Clinique Super City Block Sheer SPF25

by Eva Victoria Sandnes

No effect

It says by the manufacturer that it has Broad-Spectrum protection against UV-rays.

Low UVA protection.

Even though it has excellent cosmetic properties, like consistency, spreadability etc. It is not a good UV protector unfortunately. It contains 8,8% TiO2. It protects against UVB rays but it does not protect against UVA. Sunscreens that contain min. 20% ZnO/ or advanced filters like the sunscreens manufactured and sold in the EU by Nivea(TinosorbS+M) or L'Oreal (MexorylXL)will provide much better protection. If you live in the US you should look for products that either contain ZnO 20%<, TiO2+ZnO totally 20%<; Avobenzone together with Octocrylene or MexorylSX(stabilizes AVO).

Don't buy it!
