          Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief:

          I normally love Clinique products and was super excited about this moisturizer after reading the great reviews. Unfortunately, I did not have the same positive experience as others have had with this product. My skin is normal to dry, and I have minimal breakouts every now and then. I used this product after I showered and in the morning under my primer and make up, just like I've always done with moisturizers. I loved the gel-like texture, but was disappointed at how it made my skin feel after the application. It didn't feel like my skin was moisturized at all no matter how much or how little product I applied. It didn't feel like I applied anything at all. In addition to that, I noticed my skin broke out way more than unusual after using this product. I wanted to give it a fair shot, so I continued using it consistently for a couple of weeks to see if my skin would adapt to it, but I still kept getting the breakouts and lack of moisture. It was the only thing in my skincare routine that changed, so I feel like it was a result of this moisturizer. This is all just a personal experience/opinion. I'm sure it is great for others, but i would recommend trying a travel sized container first to make sure you like it before purchasing a full sized one like I did.

                  Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief:

                  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! I have combo/oily/acne-prone/hypersensitive skin (with bouts of eczema). I hate the feel of moisturizers/sunscreens/foundations...but I LOVE this and use it daily (morning and night). It absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. This is my one can't-live-without product. I can even use it on my forehead (which for acne-prone skin, is usually unheard of). I only wish this came in an a.m. version with spf, as I cannot find a sunscreen that works for my problematic skin. (For people with drier skin, there's an "intense" version of this line that may be great for you, but the "extended thirst relief" has helped heal my own dry patches - caused by allergic reactions to sunscreens - so I imagine it would work great for dry-skin too). I can use this product year round, during MInnesota's dry winters and humid summers. Just a fantastic product!! Can't say enough about it!

                  Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief:

                  I bought the travel size of this bc I was searching for a new affordable moisturizer after I ran out of my este lauder day wear face moisturizer. I applied this in the morning and ended up having to reapply it THREE more times bc my face still felt so dry. I don't see how this is a best seller, maybe it's just me. It's not a terrible moisturizer but it's not something I'd ever use repetitively and definitely wouldn't purchase. If you're admin about buying this, id recommend the travel size first.

                      How does this work with makeup? Does it pill underneath at all? Do you apply this lotion and wait for it to fully absorb before applying makeup or can you apply makeup immediately after applying?

                        A:

                        Hi! Clinique's Moisture Surge is a great moisturizer, and very popular. If you have an additional need to minimize fine lines, you may want to try Clinique's Smart Custom Repair Moisturizer. It will hydrate your dry skin as well as help with signs of aging. Depending on the severity of blemishes, I suggest using a 3 step skin care system. If you only have a few breakouts, you may want to try Clinique's basic 3 step skin care system, coupled with Clinique's Clinical Clearing Gel. This will cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize. I suggest using the oil free version in a skin type #3 or #4. If your breakout is a bit more of a concern, please let me know the degree of breakout you are experiencing and I can suggest a more customize solution. Have a great week!

                    • Q:

                      I use to have really oily skin growing up, but since menopause my skin is extremely dry everywhere except my t zones. I have extremely sensitive skin though. I can't even use makeup remover wipes on my face, it breaks out in a bad rash. I have even tried the regular dermalogica brand face moisturizing mask & i had an allergic reaction. For face wash I use dermalogica adult acne line & it has done wonders for my skin. I just can't find something that soaks in my skin very well, my foundation won't cake bc of the moisturizer, isn't too oily, & wont break out my face. I like gel like products, but the neutrogena hydroboost doesn't work anymore. I like the light weight feel of it, just isn't enough moisturizer. I have always heard great things about Clinique. So what would you suggest I try for a moisturizer? What eye cream would you suggest made by Clinique?

                        A:

                        Hi! Moisture Surge is one of our most popular items, so you are wise to consider it as an option. It is very lightweight on skin and will not cause breakout. Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief formula is for all skin types, but if you are feeling a lot of tightness, there is another Moisture Surge product that gives more intense moisturizing benefits. It is more of a cream vs a gel, but it still feels more lightweight on skin than most traditional cream formulas.
                        As for eye cream, we make several, and I would choose one for you based on your main skin goal around the eye area. For example, if it's dryness, All About Eyes Rich is a nice option. If it is de aging, Clinique Smart Eye Treatment is a nice option. Please share your skin goals and I can offer advice around your needs.
                        Thank you for your questions and your interest in Clinique! We look forward to working with you!

                        Hi! Thank you for your question. We would love to offer a sample of this product to you! In all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product, we have jars specifically for sampling Clinique product. You may want to call ahead of time to guarantee that the store carries the full line, but there are several in the Houston area. We look forward to working with you!

                      Hi. This question has probably been asked before. Can people with oily and acne prone skin use this product?

                        Hi! Yes, this is oil free and non acnegenic, so all skin types can use it. It is very popular and feels weightless on skin. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!
