                Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

                I have been using Clinique products on and off for years, but I always come back for their moisturizers. This is the only moisturizer that makes my very dry skin feel soft and comfortable. It never irritates and is actually soothing after wearing make up all day. There is no scent and my very sensitive skin thanks me when I use it.

                I have dry skin all year round, although it is worse in the winter. This cream is the best I have ever used, and along with the sleeping mask, it has saved my skin.

                  I use the product after exfoliating, showers/baths, after I take off my makeup, and before I put on my makeup. I have pretty dry and oily skin and this product works so well to keep both of those issues at bay. Would 100% encourage everyone to try this moisturizer

                      I recently developed dry skin when I moved to Texas. I have tried multiple moisturizers but this is the only one that actually keeps my face moisturized through out the day and does not bother my acne prone skin.

                      • Q:

                        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.

                        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.

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!
