Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Sunscreen Targeted Protection Stick Review

I hate sunscreen, however being pale and blonde it is a necessity and every year I try new brands to get the perfect fit. This year I think I found it.

I am in love with the Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Sunscreen Targeted Protection Stick.


Why I love this the Clinique SPF 45 Stick.

This is one of the only sunscreen sticks that does not affect my skin. No rash or allergy problems which is the biggest plus. I also love the smell (or lack thereof). I hate smelly, chemically sunscreen and this Clinique stick has neither. It has a very, very, very light citrus smell and it protects you from the sun perfectly. My kid loves this product too.

The texture is more oily than creamy (although it is oil free) and applies completely clear. It also conditions your skin while protecting it which is great for those of us (like me) who worry about the aging effects of the sun.

My only problem is with the size. The tube is pricey for whole body use so I limit this to my face and hands although I have used a bit on my shoulders too. Clinique says it’s for  “eye-area skin, lips, nose, earlobes, even scars.” I wish they had a larger stick. Clinique does have an Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Cream but I much prefer the stick.
