Okay but not enough for drier skin

    Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

    Used this cream for years, but never felt like it was enough. It didn't sink in well even though I have very dry skin. When I needed more moisture (like in the winter), I would try to layer and just end up with the same gunky film and no relief for my skin. Now I use organic moisturizer without any silicones and that has made a huge difference for me. Without oil to deeply hydrate, the Clinique was never enough for my skin. Too much silicone and too few moisturizing ingredients.

        Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

        This product is great in the winter when my skin needs extra moisture. I think it helps "plump" my skin. I only use it at night since it's too thick for me to wear under make up.

            Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

            This product works great for very dry skin. It does take quite a while to absorb, but makeup appears flawless over it. There is a very strong odor when you first use the product. It smells like acetone. My skin is very sensitive and I have not had any issues using this product over the last five days. I will deal with the smell of it stops my skin from flaking.

              I have dry to very dry skin, and this product has been my holy grail moisturizer since I got a sample!! Amazing texture that soaks into a the skin well, it works great as an overnight moisturizer as well as under makeup depending on how much you use! All I could ask for out of a moisturizer, it's by far the best product I have tried so far for tackling my dry flakey skin.

              I use the product whenever my skin becomes dry/flaky. This is the best moisturizer I have found for my type of skin; I have eczema and my skin is SUPER sensitive/dry/flaky all the time. This moisturizer is easy on my skin and is so light and smooth. I love it!

              Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

              I have suffered from eczema my whole life (I'm 25 now), so I've tried various products to try to combat dryness and minimize my eczema flare-ups. Yes, I agree that it's a heavy cream and may feel a bit greasy for some. However, if you suffer from any of the issues that I have, I would definitely give this moisturizer a try. Unlike other moisturizes, this one truly feel like it soaks into my skin and provides me with lasting moisture (a rarity for me!). My only qualm is that it kind of has a harsh smell, but I've gotten used to it by now. I've been using this cream daily for over a year, and I am happy that I've finally found something that my skin will tolerate.
