      Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief:

      When i did a foundation consultation the representative applied this after the normal moisturizer and my skin felt moisturized and fresh. So of course i purchased this! I have dry skin and i already use Cliniques 3 step system. But i find that this is a great addition to my moisturizer. On days when i have no make up down in south Florida i really feel my skin more thirsty than usual and this is great! It absorbs quickly and it leaves a fresh hydrated feeling since it is in gel form. Double thimbs up!!

          Out of nowhere my skin became so dry and kind of felt like sandpaper and I had skin flaking off all over my face, so I tried this out. It hasn't even been a week and my skin is super soft and the dryness is completely controlled whenever I put this on my face, and my flaky spots are disappearing. I use it when I wake up and before I go to bed, sometimes I'll do it in the middle of the day because I just love how it feels on my skin.

          Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief:

          I came in to Ulta just to check out the Clinique foundation. I told the girl who was helping me pick a foundation about my oily skin and I asked her what moisturizer she would recommend. She told me about the moisture surge and how it was a gel cream. I originally used the Neutrogena Hydro boost water gel which I loved but for some reason I felt like it didn't last too long. I contemplated about getting the moisture surge because it was on the expensive side but since I did need a moisturizer at the time, I went for it. I loved the way it felt on my face and how silky it made my skin feel. Also you do not need a lot of product to cover the face which is always nice. Less is more when using this. Now that summer is coming, this moisturizer will really help with my oily skin. My face will be hydrated without feeling greasy. I would recommended this for anyone with oily skin and probably for people who have dry skin as well since it really does hydrate your skin.

              Noticed fines under my eyes a few months back. I hate them. On a whim I bought travel size for trip. Huge difference!!! I thought I looked good cause of the sun, but as soon as I bought the large and tried it my face looked smooth and silky!!! Love this product and I never thought I would say that about a moisturizer.

                I really enjoy this moisturizer. I use it every night after my shower. I like the gel consistency and it makes my skin feel so soft. My only complaint is that it is not as moisturizing as I would like, however I have very dry skin. It still does a good job and helps with some of my dry, flaky patches. I also like that it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin because it doesn't really have a scent. Really nice product and great quality for the price!

                    I've been using the Smart Custom-Repair Serum + the Smart SPF 15 Moisturizer & the Smart Night Moisturizer. LOVE them -- especially the Night with the serum. How would I use this product with either of those? It seems like the moisture factor might be overkill and possibly cause breakouts or feel sticky?

                      Hi! I am so happy to hear that you are enjoying the Smart franchise! I agree, they are wonderful products!
                      Moisture Surge is also a wonderful product, but if you are not feeling that you need additional moisture after your 3 step and your Smart routine, this is not necessarily a product that you would need to add to your current routine. You may want to have it on hand for temporary dryness due to weather conditions or dehydration from times like flying or skiing, but I don't believe you need it for daily use.
                      You may want to try Clinique's Smart Custom Repair Oil for the face, or Clinique Smart Eye Treatment if you are looking to add something else to your skin care routine.

                      Hi! The main purpose of this product is to hydrate the skin. Products like Repairwear Laser Focus or Clinique Smart are designed to specifically target lines and wrinkles. It sounds like this is your main skin goal, so you are probably not in need of the Clinique Moisture Surge. You may want to try something like Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum or Clinique Smart Treatment Oil. Thanks for your question and have a wonderful week!

                    Hi I have very oily acne prone skin but get really dry too and need something to help moisturize my skin without making it more oily. I use the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel but feel it's not enough. My skin feels very dry still which is maybe why it produces so much oil. Would the moisture surge help with my skin type and not make me break out more?

                      A:

                      Hi! This is a wonderful booster to your routine. You may be experiencing dehydration if your skin still feels tight underneath. If this is the case, this is an amazing addition to use as needed when you are feeling a bit dehydrated. It is oil free and very lightweight on the skin!
                      If you are experiencing flakiness on the surface instead of actual tightness, I would suggest exfoliation boosters, like Clinique's Clarifying Lotion twice a day.
                      Thank you for your question and have a wonderful day!

                      A:

                      Hi! I am so sorry to hear about this. There are many things that can cause allergic reactions in skin. It can be the products you apply topically, the environment you are exposed to, medication, stress or even the food that we eat to name a few. It is unlikely that you would suddenly experience a reaction after weeks of using it, but if you are in question, you can always discontinue use to see if you are having a reaction due to your switch in moisturizer. All Clinique products are allergy tested, which means we test them on a panel of 600 people 12 times each before launch. Out of those 7200 applications, if one person has any type of reaction, we reformulate the product to guarantee it is safe for your skin. I am sorry that you are experiencing any type of reaction and wish you luck in resolving it quickly. Thank you for your question and your interest in Clinique!
