Sold in approximately 140 countries and territories, Clinique's mission today remains what it was from the beginning: to provide the highest quality and most effective products to enhance every skin type and concern, offering products for men and women of all ages and ethnicities. Clinique’s customised approach and quality products—all meticulously tested and carefully formulated with the latest science—have made Clinique one of the leading skin care authorities in the world.

Can great skin be created?
Clinique partnered with clinicians to pioneer the first-ever dermatologist-developed skin care system: Cleanse with Facial Soap, exfoliate with Clarifying Lotion, moisturize with Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ or Gel.
Can makeup be good for your skin? Absolutely!
Clinique makeup makes great skin look even better.
Every Clinique eye shadow and mascara is ophthalmologist tested. Our luscious lip colours are loaded with do-gooders like moisturizers, but not a lick of fragrance. And our foundations don't just perfect—they actively improve the look of fine lines, redness, uneven skin tone and more.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Use every day all year round- not greasy and easy to apply quickly , protects my skin from sun and premature aging 14 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't live without this! This is a marvellous product which I use daily and helps me feel confident about being protected from the sun. It's also a nice foundation even if I'm not wearing much make up. 06 October 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unfit for purpose according to medical research. I now understand that the most important protection is from products that have a UVA protection of 5 stars - the ultimate against ageing and sunburn. I don't believe that this item conforms to the safest requirements. It is 40 SPF which only covers UVB so not what I need for an ageing skin. This makes the item overpriced and unfit for purpose. 07 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good product I have extremely fair skin that manages to burn, even in England, and even on overcast days. I used this whilst in Amsterdam, I still managed to get a little bit red in the face - but I was on a boat in the midday sun for three hours, but avoided the lobster look I would normally fall victim to. I would recommend it, as it doesn't irritate skin and seems to help keep make-up on. However, for people with fair skin I would say that you should probably take it out with you to reapply if you are going to be out all day. Otherwise I think it is a really great product. It is invisible (feels more like a moisturising product to me than an SPF one which I think is great) and I haven't had any of the shininess other people seem to have experienced with it. 18 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommended Although the cream is tinted, it rubs into the skin without leaving any colour. With a slightly dry consistency, it creates the perfect base to apply make-up. If you have dry skin, I would recommend applying a serum before hand. 03 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product I use this every day. It is invisible once on, it agrees with my skin and it can be worn under make-up. I have been wearing it for years and haven't found a better facial sunblock. 13 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all-rounder plus can be used in the eye area This is a great product for the everyday use, especially in city areas, where you're not only affected by sun but also need some good antioxidants and moisturizing effect to protect from pollution. I was initially drawn to this as I was looking for high spf eye cream and found out this can be used around the eyes plus it got great reviews at Paula's Choice website, as she points out great benefits of this product other than the obvious sun-block. It's oil free but be aware that it leaves quite a luminous finish, at least on my combination skin but it's not a problem for me as I use it as a base or even as a very sheer tinted moisturizer (as it's got a light tint to it) and dust over with translucent powder if I'm annoyed by the sheen. In general it also sits really well under makeup, just if you do use it on the eye area then allow it to sink before applying concealer. The only thing is that I'm not sure how this tint behaves on darker skin tones but I read somewhere that it just has a 'highlighting effect'. Besides that I really highly recommend it, also on oliy-combination skin (didn't break me out). 08 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Daily gem This product is a staple in my make-up bag. It is light and comfortable to wear under moituriser, tinted moisturiser and/or foundation. I know my skin is protected and benefits from all year round usage. Give it a try. 01 April 2015
