Most Helpful Positive Review Better than the original (Really!)
I have used Clinique products for years, and was nervous when the 72 hour version came out since moisture surge is great and a cult classic. This has the same pleasant, cooling gel-feel as the original, and instantly hydrates the skin. I have oily, acne-prone skin, but it gets dehydrated easily from acne products and living in frigid Wisconsin. The moisture surge 72 hour keeps my skin feeling soft and flake free, without breaking out. It absorbs easily, making a base for primer and foundation.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not the same as the old Moisture Surge
Very disappointed that Clinique recently changed their formula. I was a huge fan of the original Moisture Surge, but when they 'upgraded' it to the 72-hour formula, it caused my skin to breakout after a few hours. I really didn't want this to be true, so I stopped using it for a week (my skin cleared up) and then when I used it again I broke out. The hunt begins for another daily moisturizer....

This moisturizer does not work for me, my skin feels extremely dry. I'll not buy it again.
Lindsay from Indio, CA
I use this moisturizer morning and/or night. It's great at hydrating your skin and it has hyaluronic acid
Best skincare product ever!
Rachel from Vero Beach, Florida
I have combination oily skin. I love this product. I only have Clinique skin care products. And it's funny how my favorite skin care product is the most expensive. So moisturizing! Love it!
Over hyped, over priced gimmick
Erika from Pennsylvania
I used this last night before bed. It made my skin smooth and felt nice. When I woke up I instantly felt pain on my face. I had huge, deep pimples in places I've never broke out before. About 5 in total. I don't have sensitive skin and rarely break out. This is hands down the worst skin care product I've ever wasted money on.
Jenn from Ohio
I bought the travel size of this to try, and I'm so glad I did. I have combo oily skin that's oily in my t zone and flaky dry everywhere else, I am also really prone to hormonal cystic acne that flairs up to allot of different products and finding the right moisturizer has been nothing but a chore. This has been a complete game changer to my skin care routine, it gives me the hydration I need with out making my oily areas oil slick, it absorbs super quick and leaves my skin feel soft and subtle. I couldn't be more impressed with a product
Savior for dry, sensitive skin
Softee from Fort Lauderdale
I've been using this for a couple months now and I don't know what I did without it! What I love about it is that it's super hydrating on dry skin, lightweight enough to use under makeup, actually does make your skin softer for days, doesn't clog my pores, and is gentle enough for my red, irritable skin.
This is the best moisturizer ever. Non greasy.
Punky from Topeka, Kansas
This only takes a small amount to make your skin feel so soft and smooth. I love this moisturizer.
I would definitely recommend this product.
Mar from Colorado Springs
I use this product almost everyday mostly at night and I can say that my skin is looking healthier and really hydrated, I turned 30 this year and my face is changing, it used to be oily and I really didn't need any lotion but now my skin is really dry! this product has helped me to get some moisture back and soft skinned, is not oily after you apply it so it is perfect to use before makeup and before going to bed. I love it!
🥰 from Mesa
I was having trouble finding the right moisturizer because I have a oily skin and at the same time I have dry skin in certain spots. Every time I put my foundation on throughout the day my face was very oily and I try other moisturizers and they were too dry but this one is perfect for my skin. It makes my skin look matte and beautiful. I am using it with their primer and foundation and it's a great combination I love it I don't think I ever change this.
KO from Indiana
I use this product multiple times a day to hydrate my face and always put under my makeup. I have facial psoriasis and this has been helpful and non irritating.
Teacher from Dallas
It makes my face so smooth. I was surprised how far a little bit of this goes. I can't wait to put this on every night
Not a Surge of Moisture
mew2youtoo from AZ
I got this product because I have dry acne prone skin, so a lot of the products I use to treat acne end up being slightly drying for me. I thought this product would be a good night moisturizer so I could go to bed feeling super hydrated and helping my flakiness, but it just didn't do that at all. It drys so quickly and leaves the skin feeling a little sticky for a few minutes. I can see how this would be nice for someone with oily skin, but why would anyone with an oily skin type go for something called "moisture surge"? So I would not recommend this to anyone at all.
The One I Will Always Come Back To
Rachel from Clemson, SC
I absolutely adore this moisturizer and can't say enough good things about it. I got a jar as a gift last year and used it in my winter routine while in the summer I phased out of it to a lighter moisturizer (cosrx snail mucin which I also love). Due to the price of this, I was trying to get away with something else going into fall/winter and my skin hated me for it. I was using squalane oil and a couple other moisturizers to try to curb my dry skin but the irritated, dehydrated patch on my cheek just got worse. The second I bought a new jar of this and overapplied it as an overnight mask, my skin felt like it took a deep breath and relaxed for the first time in a month. The red patch on my cheek faded in a few days of use and my skin is happy once again. While I really wish it was cheaper, for how much my skin loves it, it's well worth the price tag and will always stay in my dry skin routine!
I love this stuff.. I saw a difference over night!
Sandy from Salisbury
I saw a difference over night. I love it!!!
SteelersFan81 from Collierville, TN
I adore this moisturizer. I buy the 1 oz. jar every year during 21 Days of Beauty. It lasts me all year b/c I don't need much for my whole face & neck. it claims to be Fragrance Free but I smell a pleasant faint sweetness upon opening the jar. I have combo/oily skin & this doesn't make me greasy. I use mine in the morning. It layers well w/sunscreen & makeup primers. Thank you, Clinique!
The perfect moisturizer
Cheyenne from St. Petersburg Florida
I use this moisturizer when I wake up and before bed. It makes me skin feel so hydrated and doesn't feel like it leaves a film. My skin soaks it right in.
I Love This Moisturizer
Hobi from VA
I've been using this moisturizer for 2 months now, and I love it. It moisturizes well and it's not heavy.
This stuff is AMAZING!
krnorman87 from MN
I really love this moisturizer! I have oily/acne prone skin that gets very dry in the winter months in MN and this is a life saver! It's the perfect amount of moisture. It's not tacky feeling. Leaves face feeling very soft. I hope they never discontinue this moisturizer!
A staple in my daily skincare routine
Lexa from Orange County
I buy this regularly. I use it daily after shower to moisture my face after toner. A little goes a long way. Don't use more than you need or it can flake.
Nanny05 from Charleston
Love this moisturizer! I'm middle aged with combination skin and this moisturizer does the job! Will definitely buy again!!!!
Best moisturizer they've ever created!!!
BosschickV from Santa Rosa, CA
I am so in love with this moisturizer, I always stock up when it's on sale for 21 days of beauty!! I have combo oily skin and it works great, makes me feel so moisturizer and I use it day and night! Whenever I try to venture out to other moisturizers, I always go back to my holy grail! IN LOVE!
Literally my oily-skinned holy grail
Rinn from Atlanta, GA
As someone who has always struggled with hormonal acne and crazy oily skin, Moisture Surge has been my holy grail for about three years now. A 1.7 ounce jar usually lasts me 8-10 months, and I just repurchased for the 4th time, this time going for a 2.5 ounce. I love it that much! Its a great moisturizer for my dry, patchy days (which I get every now and then in the colder months) and my super greasy hot-and-humid Georgia days too. I've tried other water-based moisturizers at different price points and Clinique has won out every time. The best part about this moisturizer is that it absorbs so quickly that before long, you'll forget it's even there. Completely worth every penny!
My holy grail
Vasrad from Virginia, US
Moisturizes wonderfully without being too heavy or greasy. I can use it in all seasons, in winter if I find my skin is more dry I can just do any layer of this after the first one absorbs and I'm good to go.
Shea from Helena
This is a must for me! It gives me great moisture without making my skin break out or become oily.. if you have combination skin it is a must have! Smells great too!
Cass from Salt Lake City
I've been using this moisturizer for years now. I love that it's so light, non-greasy and very hydrating. I always buy a few on the ulta 24 day sales and it lasts a long time. A little goes a long way. This product is definitely hydrating and great for sensitive skin. Only cons are it doesn't really address wrinkles and it would be nice to have SPF for daytime use. Still, highly recommend.
