Graet when you need a little extra moisture!

By Lilly

from Ohio

About Me Beauty Conscious

Pros

  • Moisturizes Well

Cons

  • Too Greasy Or Heavy

Best Uses

  • Deep Moisturization

Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

I use this in the evenings during the winter / dry season. It does make me a little shiny, so I don't recommend it for morning, but it really does work great on my dry winter skin! Also does not break me out, which is very important.

    Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

    This cream effectively decreased the redness I have on my face. It also has a built in primer, so my face doesn't feel like it's coated in product when I do my daily beauty routine.

        Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

        This is the only product that keeps my face moisturized! I used to live on the east coast and I always needed light, oil-free moisturizers but since I moved out west my skin is sooooo dry. I tried the regular Moisture Surge and I liked the feeling of the gel, it absorbed quickly, etc but by the middle of the day you could see all my dry patches. The intense Moisture Surge is a lifesaver and keeps me hydrated all day long. It also makes my foundation look great!

          Wonderfully rich, silky moisturizer. The feeling going on is a luxurious feeling. Love the texture. Has improved my fine lines. It would be perfect if it had an SPF factor but then t would change the texture I love.

            Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

            I grew up having really awful eczema all over. My skin is much better now but I still do everything I can to not trigger anything so I'm very particular about moisturizer. I'm normally a CeraVe or First Aid user because I like the thicker consistency but I got Clinique's Moisture Surge as a sample and I gave it a shot because there was no fragrance. It. Is. Amazing! A little goes a long way (I got 3 full uses out of the sample) so it's light and thin on my skin but it really does hydrate and it keeps my skin really soft. I went right out and bought the full product.

              Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

              I have tried TONS of moisturizers. This winter, they just couldn't keep up with the dry air, and my face was literally itching. I was previously using bareMinerals Butter Drench, and still do sometimes, but this moisturizer really got my skin back to where it should be. It is very refreshing and smells great! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! It is rather spendy, but after trying different makeup and face care products, you really get what you pay for. I use the rest of the Clinique line for my other facial needs as well.

                    • Q:

                      I accidently grabbed the Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator instead of the lighter moisture surge moisturizer. Is this ok to use under makeup, or should I exchange it? I have very dry skin.

                        Hi! It can absolutely be used under makeup. It is a very different texture. You may prefer it if you have dry skin. It is very moisturizing, but more of a creamy feel. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                        Hi! I am glad that you like the reviews you have read on this product. It is very popular and I believe you will enjoy it as well. If you are concerned about the age of the sample, please feel free to stop by the Ulta store near you that carries a FULL line of Clinique product. The expert there can give you a fresh sample of the product, as it is not always easy to identify the age of the product you currently have. The great news is that most Clinique products, including this one, have a 2 year minimum shelf life after being opened. Thank you for your interest in Clinique and have a wonderful week!
