    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.

                Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

                I have been using retin-a (prescription retinol) for a couple of months now and the initial phase really destroyed my skin. My face was flaking and peeling but also extremely oily in the t-zone because the retin-a has really opened up my pores. Definitely an extreme case of combination skin.

                This moisturizer was recommended to me by the Clinique rep in my local store. I was hesitant because I had never tried anything from Clinique but I'm so glad I tried it. It has brought my skin back to life. Not only has it gotten the flaking and peeling under control, the oil production has also calmed down. I use this day and night now.

                  I bought this because I have bad winter skin. The smell may bother some but it's not strong. It doesn't absorbs fast but that's okay because it's a night cream. Not ment for under makeup or day cream! Has no spf. My skin feels so much better.

                    This product is great! I had been using the regular moisture surge (which is great for summer), but during the winter months my skin became dryer. This was a game changer. It's much thicker than the regular moisture surge and really soothed and healed my dry skin. It absorbs fairly quickly for a cream. It feels luxurious when applying. I would recommend using it at night to let it really soak in. I am also acne prone and this product did not make me break-out.

                      Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

                      I have combination skin, that is skewed towards dryness throughout the winter. My skin surface is often rough during the winter, and appears red due to irritation. During the summer, it is completely fine. After washing my face, I apply this product to the dry zones (may be a tiny bit greasy if you apply to areas which are prone to be greasy in the summer...), and it INSTANTLY clears up all of my problems. I use this daily, and you can even blend foundation with it for application. It makes my skin look plump/supple, and gives the glowing look I've been pursuing.

                      For zones which are normal-oily, I prefer to use the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief product instead. For those with combination skin or drier, you will not be disappointed with this product!

                          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!
