Clinique Super City Block BB Compact Review

I think I may have found the one!… Well the perfect BB Cream anyway; the Clinique Super City Block BB Cream! At the moment my makeup routine is super minimal due to my little lady needing my attention 24/7 so putting a bit of slap on has gone from a luxurious 10 minutes to two minutes, if I am lucky!! (With my lack of sleep I need all the help I can get). Anything that makes this part of my morning run a bit smoother whilst making me look like I’m less tired is worth trying!

The product that I am crushing on big time is the NEW Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50

The Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50 a multitasking formula that delivers high broad-spectrum SPF protection, instant hydration and buildable coverage. This breakthrough fluid makeup in a cushion compact provides longwearing, breathable coverage while rich antioxidants shield skin from environmental aggressors, all in one‐step.

Through innovative technology, a liquid BB cream is imbedded into a cushiony sponge, that is housed within an airtight engine that snaps into a portable compact. The applicator sponge in combination with the formula creates an unexpected cooling sensation that leaves skin ultra-refreshed and energised.

The Details

They say that a BB cream is the only product you will need after you wash your face. This is the first time I have properly used a BB cream on a daily basis and I have to agree! I still use a moisturiser but this BB is a light to medium coverage that’s very build-able. Another plus point to this is that is covers my post pregnancy pigmentation across my forehead and top lip. Extra coverage is definitely needed here and the sponge is great for adding more product to the areas that need it.

There is no need for primer and the finish is really silky so my skin still looks like skin. So that’s high sun protection ✔️ no need for primer ✔️ and no powder ✔️✔️
It’s not completely perfect as its not as long lasting as I would hope but the compact is east to use and you can reapply as needed.
