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 was my first ever moisturizer and I loved it! But not anymore. I have combination skin and it doesn't seem to work. It makes the dry parts dryer and the oily parts oilier. Overall it just feels like a greasy film on my face and that my face doesn't end up feeling moisturized. I combine it was a few drops of rose hip oil now when I use it just so I can get through my last jar, but I will be looking for other moisturizers. I think there is a better moisturizer out there that is either cheaper or better than this one for the same price.

I have bought this for several years. Best moisturizer I've ever tried. I have really sensitive skin and this is the only moisturizer that doesn't break me out.
Embrace the moisture!
SG from South Carolina
I was apprehensive because I have very oily skin, but it's working well. My favorite part is how well it goes into the skin, leaving an almost matte finish. A+
I wanted to love it...
VFW from My living room
I really did. How could you go wrong with a Clinique moisturizer, right? I just don't like the way this feels on my face. It feels like my skin has a film on it, and it does not feel hydrated at all. Disappointed.
I will always use this product
Mary from Parsippany, NJ
My face has never felt or looked better.
Made me breakout
Michelle from Oklahoma
Feels great on your skin and light but caused major breakouts for me.
K from Tn
This is amazing when my skin is extra dry. It keeps a layer of protection all day! Would recommend to anyone with sensitive or dry skin.
A definite buy
Deb from Alabama
I use this as my bedtime ritual.

So I bought this product in the end of November and was very excited about it at first. It seemed to fit my skin very well since I have dry skin and oily cheeks, and this product just seemed to work perfectly without making me overly oily or dry. My skin was looking glowy and brightened at first and I was so happy because I have acne on my cheeks that makes my skin look dull. In the beginning of December I noticed I started breaking out in random red rashes on my face and at first I wasn't sure why. I would be randomly sitting and just break out in a random bright red rash that would eventually go by itself but it was still annoying because it would come and go randomly and itch/be uncomfortable. I thought I was eating something that was causing me this and I even began to question my other products with active ingredients for acne. Then I came on here to repurchase this product when I started reading a recent view where someone else said they were having similar symptoms as mine. I went to look at the other Clinique moister surge cream and the same complaints were on there so I decided to stop using this for a day to see if I would notice any difference. Sure enough after I stopped using this moisturizer the rashes went away. Its unfortunate because I really liked this product. I was reading that clinique recently changed their formulation so it could be that. Use at your own risk.
I would buy this again

This is a great moisturizer!
Not a fan of recent formula change
RedLips from Denton, TX
I was a die hard fan of the old one before they updated to the new one. I could deal with the tackiness of the new and improved formula if it didn't make my face immediate swell up and cause massive breakouts and itching. I am incredibly disappointed after having used it a few months and trying to figure out which of my 6 step nightly routine was causing this reaction.
Absolutely adore this product
Alaina from Denver
I live in Colorado where it's crazy dry. This lotion is god sent! I use it every night and mix it with a bit of sunscreen in the morning. I love gel lotions because cream lotions are too rich on my skin and make me breakout and feels greasy. This gel lotion is ultra hydrating and blends in to skin so well! I have combination skin and this works super well for me.
Tmg from Houston
I can't live without this no matter the season and how my skin changes
I would not buy again
Redheaded Momma from Michigan Girl
price is a big consideration also doesn't work with regular coupons.
So worth it
Gigi from Dallas
This gel cream is amazing. I have to use a mask 8 hours a day so my cheeks got super dry but once I started using this it helped so much and now my skin feels better than before. Super worth it!
my forever moisturizer
anonymous from CA

Great product, great value
MAS from Iowa
The only daily hydration I use under my make-up
This is amazing
Kate from East Peoria IL
This product works! I am 64 and already looking much better
Can't feel it on my face
Jen from Minnesota
This was recommended to me because my makeup would melt and separate on my face, no matter what brand I tried. He said this would help hydrate my skin to keep my makeup in place and I was skeptical because I have hated the feeling of past creams/gels I've tried. This is wonderful! Drys very fast, isn't heavy at all, works great under makeup, and my makeup has been staying in place since I've been using this.
Have been buying this product for years!
Pat from Hardeeville SC
Use on clean face in the morning and bedtime.

I use this product morning and night. It glides on smoothly and is great under makeup
Hpycmpr from Michigan
Great product for everyday use
Not a moisturizer- hydrated - if that
Jessica from North bay
This product did not live up to its hype. I was really excited to try it because my skin was in desperate need of loaded moisture. It left a film on my skin and made it feel even more dry than before I applied it.
I have normal to dry skin. I wouldn't recommend. Try some heavy/lighter moisturizer somewhere else.
I have and will continue to use this product.
TexasT from Texas
I use this AM/PM on cleaned skin and if my skin is really dry I use it to soften my make up for that area.
The best hydrating gel I've ever used!
Kris from Florida
I use it at night & morning before applying makeup. Your skin will feel young again. Definitely try it!
