PROS

Moisturizes skin

Oil-free

Does not cause pimples

Effective protection from UVA and UVB rays

Does not leave any residue

CONS

Expensive

Thick


We are all aware that this sunscreen comes in two types of packaging, i.e. face cream and body cream. The body cream comes in a bigger tube. What I do is, I buy the body cream instead of face cream and use it for my face. That way, I don’t have to use it sparingly, and I save my money effectively. They both have the same ingredients and same formulation.

It is a relatively expensive sunscreen, but the effectiveness explains it. I have been using it for almost two years now. This sunscreen has high antioxidants which are not irritating to the skin. Compared to others I have used, this sunscreen does not leave any filter layer. Even though it is thick, it glides on my combination skin smoothly without leaving any residue.

Till date, I have not experienced any problem with it. I highly recommend it.

PROS

Non-greasy

Does not leave a white cast

Lightweight

Imparts glow

CONS

Expensive

Chemical smell


Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Body Cream is not my first Clinique product. I have used several products of it. So I’m aware that Clinique does not have products with any smell. But with this body lotion, I don’t understand what happened. When I slather the lotion, a strong chemical smell builds up. Of course, it fades off with time. But it caught me off guard.

Otherwise, it is a very decent sunscreen. It leaves no white cast. Instead, it leaves a nice glow on my skin. I apply all over the exposed areas of my body and my face as well.

4.7/5

PROS

Does not leave a white cast

Quickly absorbed

Oil-free

Provides a broad spectrum of sunscreen

CONS

Reapplication is needed


I am a 43 year old woman, and I give absolute priority to my skin care. I am quality and brand conscious. After years of experimenting with different products and brands, I will say that Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Body Cream is one of the best I have used.

I use it on my face, neck, and hands. It gets absorbed quickly. It does not leave any white cast like most other sunscreens, and my skin has been protected very well for the past five years. I love it and highly recommend it.

4/5

PROS

Removes tan

Moisturizes well

Provides effective sun protection

CONS

Thick

Needs effort to blend


I bought this for the first time last summer when I was looking for a high SPF sunscreen for my legs, wanting to remove the suntan. After months of use, I will say that this sunscreen provided effective protection and the tanning was lightened. It did take a lot of time, though.

I liked how it moisturized my skin, but it is quite thick and hard to blend. Other than that, it is a very decent sunblock lotion.
