Back at the end of 2009 I was sent a few products from Clinique’s skincare range to test, including the infamous three step system. I have since then become pretty loyal to the skin care range, finding that when I try other brands my skin doesn’t seem to happy. Beyond the three-step program, I also tested a selection of products targeted at more specific issues/protection – one of which being the Superdefense SPF25 moisturiser.
When I first reviewed this I wasn’t exactly won over, as I found the texture to feel a bit gritty. I did note that it was probably down to a dodgy batch rather than a poor formula – and as such when the PR from Clinique read the review she offered to send me another to try to make sure I had a fair opportunity to form an opinion.
Sure enough, when I got testing the second pot – I found the formula totally different and not at all gritty. In all other ways it was just like the first time round, but with a smoother texture. To read more about what I thought first time around click HERE.
Some may wonder why – if I was testing this out in 2009 – is it only in April 2010 that I am getting around to writing about it? Well, this is because (as bad as this is) I don’t love using moisturisers with SPF in during winter, hence why I have started using it regularly now Spring has kicked in, needing SPF daily has come back onto my radar.
I do constantly suffer from a bit of guilt that I don’t wear SPF everyday, as I know I should, especially since I have absolutely no excuse for not doing. I guess I am just drawn to moisturisers that I like and they don’t happen to contain SPF. But now the sun has reared it’s wonderful head again, I know I need to wear SPF, so this has become my standard day cream.
Do you use SPF daily? If so, what’s your favorite?? Tell me more!
