Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! I was a little scepticle of city block 25spf after reading the super long (typical clinique!) ingredients list which contained a couple of nasty comedogenic ones. Anyway, I have given it a two week trial run and to my delight, haven't experienced any break-outs! Yay! I have been using it over my regular moisturiser and under make-up and have found that my face looks for hours, without any sign of greasiness. Also, I haven't experienced any eye irritation. All it all I really love this product. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because I would have liked a higher spf rating with more zinc rather than titanium dioxide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Currently my fav sunscreen I really like this spf moisturiser. It absorbs well, leaves my skin soft and its frangrace-free. I also like the fact that its a mineral sunscreen with no astringent alcohols, so it doesn't irritate my skin. The packaging is also nice, easy to carry and hygenic. The product has a light tint which doesn't really cover any major issues like redness, but it does give me a natural and dewy glow which I prefer anyway. I have very fair skin so the tint works well for me, however people with medium and darker skin tones may find that the tint is too light and creates an unnatural mask on their face. Best to test this out on your skin first to see if the tint is appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favourite! My review for Clinique City Block Sheer SPF25 has been re-submitted for the 2011 Beautyheaven Best in Beauty Awards.<br />I love this product and cannot leave the house without using it, even in winter! The SPF25 within this formula provides great protection from the harmful rays of the Sun. The texture is not so thick and the overall look provides me with a fresh face. My skin looks dull in the morning, but after applying this, my skin looks nice and fresh. I like the light coverage this product provides and recommend this. Also, another bonus is that it contains SPF, which is extremely important to use these days!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Undecided This is an odd product that I'm still undecided about. It's $36 which isn't cheap for a tinted moisturiser, which is essentially what it is. It has SPF 25 which is great, and the tint is nice and yellow toned so it's perfect for my skin. However the product separates constantly in the tube into an oily consistency which continues to separate on skin with too much blending. I have to be really careful in applying this, if I blend too much it just balls up and becomes streaky. If applied well it does have a nice finish but I'm not sure its really worth it for the price and difficulty working with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from City Block Sheer I have been coveting this product for ages and finally got it a month or so ago, it's a great combination sunscreen and primer in one, i apply my moisturiser first (was using Cllinique DDML at the time) and then the city block on top of that, when i first started using it i put my foundation straight on after letting it soak in for a few minutes, i had fantastic results and my make up really lasted the distance.....i've noticed as the weather has turned cold this combination just doesn't feel moisturising enough so have changed to a richer day cream and problem solved.....this product is certainly oil free, there is none of that greasy coating the skin feeling i've had with other sunscreens....Def one of my staples now :)

Fantastic sun block. Nothing to not like about.

I have been using this product since early twenties - only gone off this rather recently because I feel I needed more coverage. I alternated between this city block and the super city block (spf40), for no particular reason and... Read full review
