      I absolutely love this product! Since I became pregnant my skin has been super sensitive. My go-to Shiseido Benefiance was breaking me out. I live in CO so I really need a great moisturizer. I couldn't be happier.

          I love Clinique moisture surge line!! I used to use the Moisture Surge Thirst Relief but noticed I have to continue to put the lotion on my face to keep it actually moisturized. This one i barely have to use any, goes a long way, and keeps my dry spots hydrated!

                Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

                This cream is my absolute HG. NOTHING else has come close to being enough for my dry skin; and I've tried a lot trying to find something less expensive. This cream is worth it though, and I always buy the bigger size and snag a couple when there's a 20% coupon. It can take a while to sink in completely at night, and during the day I layer sunscreen and makeup over it with no problem.

                  I have been struggling with extremely dry skin and have tried a handful of products--mainly products containing hyaluronic acid. All I can say is this product has worked wonders on my skin! I applied the cream for the first time before going to bed and woke up with plump, moisturized, but not oily, skin. I am extremely happy with how this cream has transformed my skin and would recommend it to anyone with dry skin.

                          Hi! You should apply this all over the face, under your make up. You should use it up to the orbital bone, but not in the direct eye area. If you are looking for something to use as a moisture booster in the direct eye area, you can partner your eye cream with the Moisture Surge Concentrate instead of the Intense option. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                        I noticed this product contains petrolatum which can clog pores / cause me to break out, however the product is listed as non-acnegenic? Could you clarify this further? I have acne prone skin, but it is extremely dry due to the prescription acne creams that I am using. I love the moisture that this product provides but I am worried about it clogging my pores and breaking me out.
