Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
I’ve been excited to do this review for so long now, it’s sometimes hard to explain why you like something and I feel that’s how it is with this product but I’ll try my best.
The Clinique website describes this as “Light, comfortable cream/gel plumps skin with hydration for a full 24 hours. Fine lines, flakiness and tightness are washed away. In their place-a sense of supple, firm, vibrant well-being, even through shifts in humidity. One ‘drink’ and skin looks and feels happier, healthier.”
I like Clinique as a brand but they didn’t in my eyes have a really stand out product. Until I came across this bad boy.
I had gone in to Clinique to buy some makeup as my skin is very sensitive, I bought so much that I got some free samples and one of those samples was a very tiny sample of this “moisture surge”. I’m always reluctant to slap stuff onto my face because between my sensitive skin and the fact my skin is also very oily I never want to trigger a break out or a big ugly red irritation.
I tried this out, I couldn’t have been more impressed. This feels very light and fresh on the skin, it absorbs fast and doesn’t leave you feeling icky. It doesn’t have much of a scent which is perfect if you don’t want to walk around with a strong smell on your face all day.
I used the sample up within about a month of daily use and found that it didn’t cause any spots or increased oil, I also noticed the day after I stopped using it that my skin felt dry, brittle and dehydrated.
As soon as I could I bought more, I’m now on my 3rd bottle of this and can’t see how I ever lived without it. It makes a massive difference to how I feel in my skin, without a doubt one of the best things I’ve ever bought. Worth every penny.
I’ve used it on it’s own and under my makeup, both work great but I’d let it fully absorb into the skin before applying anything on top.
The only way this product could be better was if Clinique was cruelty free, but we can all dream.
If you’re suffering with dry skin or skin that just feels “meh” then give this a try.
It’s suitable for all skin types and retails at £34.00 for 50ml
