Clinique Sun Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Body Cream - Review


Sunblock - It is the number one beauty product you need this Summer and every summer. For me, that sunblock is Clinique Sun Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Body Cream.  Sunblock or sunscreen is that beauty product which isn’t considered a beauty product by most. I believe however it is the most important. Protecting yourself against sun damage will serve you well for years to come.

A couple of years ago I slip slop slapped on sunblock hourly yet the next day I was severely sunburnt — it turns out my sunblock had expired. After this horrible experience, I hunted high and low for a sun block to fulfill my needs and now every Spring I replace my sunblock for the year.

My sunblock of choice is Clinique Sun Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Body Cream. It is ideal for a day on the beach or life in the sun in general.

It has SolarSmart Technology with provides high-level protection against the effects (Ageing and burning) of both UVA and UVB Rays. It is also oil free. What I like about it the most is it feels more like a body cream than a sunscreen, and there is no shiny, sticky feel. In effect, I am happily applying this product more and more throughout the day.

This sunblock is not just a hit with me however my friends and family are quick to use this product over theirs. It is a little more on the pricey side, however,  I know I will be happy to use it, and it's no good having a sunblock that doesn't get used.

For my face, I use the sister product Clinique Sun Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Cream and on days where I am not in the direct sun, so in the office, I use Clinique City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF25 under my foundation. This product acts as a primer helping my makeup last the distance, and its sheer tint helps build coverage.

With the support of these three products not only am I protected against the damaging effects of the sun, but my skin is benefiting from the other features of these sunblocks.
