Beauty Road Test: Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 Daily Defense Moisturizer

Are the latest beauty and wellness products worthy of a spot in your teensy carry-on? T+L Associate Editor Kathryn O’Shea-Evans shares her take.

The product: Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 Daily Defense Moisturizer; $47

Pros: I admit it: sometimes the sheer selection of facial potions, lotions, and—dare I say it, BB or CC or even ZZ creams—is enough to make me feel like breaking out in hives. I’m all about simplicity in the morning, so I’ve fallen head-over-ballet-flats in love with Clinique’s new moisturizer: it helps minimize the appearance of UV damage, prevents future damage with an SPF 20, and leaves my skin with a long-lasting dewy glow (thanks to ingredients such as barley and wheat germ extract). I’ll spare you the science-y details behind why it works, but lemme tell you: it does.

Cons: I will probably have to buy a new jar every month, I’m so addicted to the stuff.

Verdict: Packable.
