Clinique Superdefense SPF25 Moisturiser


If you’re looking for an everyday moisturiser that protects your skin from everyday aggravates the Clinique Superdefense may be for you. This lightweight moisturiser not only contains an SPF25 but it also protects your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This moisturiser also protects your skin from everyday pollution, and stress. This contains antioxidants which apparently help to protect the skin, but I won’t be going into this further as ‘antioxidant’ for me seems to be a fad word that skin care companies like to throw in there. 

This moisturiser is slightly thick in texture but feels lightweight and weightless on the skin. Unlike other moisturisers I’ve tried this one doesn’t sit on the skin, it doesn’t feel tacky or sticky. This moisturiser is fragrance free but with it containing an SPF it does have 'that' smell to it, I’m an odd ball though and quite enjoy the smell of SPF because it lets me know that it’s there doing its job, and also it just reminds me of summer/holidays. Although this won’t help to control oil I don’t find this makes my skin overly oily, it seems to give my skin just the right amount of hydration it needs. As with all Clinique products you can buy a Superdense moisturiser targeted for your skin type, I have the tub aimed at oily/combination skin.

Although this is super creamy I haven’t found that this moisturiser causes unwanted breakouts, and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling congested. I use this moisturiser all year around as it works really well with my skin, through the winter months I like to reach for something richer but I think this year I’ll just buy a new pot of my Superdefense moisturiser aimed at dry skin types, as this just seems to work really well with my skin. I definitely recommend double cleansing when wearing SPF just to ensure all products are removed (I use the Clinique take the day of balm.)

What are your favourite moisturisers? Have you tried the Clinique Superdense?

I have never tried anything from Clinique, but thanks for the review! :) It looks like a great moisturizer since it has SPF in it.

I love Clinique. This does sound lovely but I have quite oily skin so maybe something to cater for that would be more suitable for me :) thanks for your comment on my blog; I'm now following you on Bloglovin' :) xo

Thank you for the comment, I have to admit Clinique seem to be a bit like marmite in the blogosphere but I quite like everything I've tried, with the exception of their toners (smell like alcohol!) xx

Thanks for the comment and follow! :) I have to admit if my skins really misbehaving I always seem to return to Clinique I've enjoyed using this though at the minute, I like to use the Moisture surge face cream when my skins oiler (it's so lightweight!) :) x

Loved he detailed review. Is it non comedogenic ? (I have acne prone skin and I am tempted to try it)

Thanks for the comment, I believe all Clinique products are non comedogenic although I do recommend a trip to the Clinique counter as they're normally ever so helpful and should be able to offer some advice :D xx
