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....

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
no matter how many others I try (because this one is a bit expensive), I ALWAYS come back to this moisturizer. it's amazing and definitely worth the price. it's superrr hydrating but great with my oily skin. it doesn't leave ANY residue and makeup goes on flawlessly over it
Great product, great value
MAS from Iowa
The only daily hydration I use under my make-up
This is amazing

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!

Use on clean face in the morning and bedtime.

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!
Lou Lou from CA
I hope that Clinique always keep this product in the store I love this hydrator!!
Not that hydrating
PS from United States
I used to use the clinique moisture surge intense skin fortifying hydrator but I believe they discontinued that. :,( So I thought I would give this a try. Unfortunately this does not help my dry skin at all. It feels and looks super dry after. My skin does feel super soft after apply but it does not help my dry skin at all. So if you are looking for a replacement for the Clinique moisture surge intense skin fortifying hydrator; this is not it.
GARBAGE. Dont waste your money.
Elizabeth from Oak Harbor, WA
EVERYONE, IT'S JUST A SILICONE GEL!!!!! And it doesn't moisturize AT ALL.
Normally I dont go to the trouble reviewing a product unless its Amazing, or So Awful People Should Be Warned.
It dried and left nothing but a weird *plasticky film*, while underneath my skin was thirsty as the Sahara! ZERO hydration. Idk how it can live up to its 72-hour promiss, when my skin parched in the first 5minutes.
I couldn't stand it. I washed it off and applied a better cream. Threw this joke away. (Who is rating this 5 stars??)
This product has NO VALUE as a moisturizer. It's a "Makeup Primer" at best.
Love this stuff!!
JBC91 from Dallas, TX
I typically use this before bed or on days at home when my skin is extra dry. Too much to wear under any foundation. I liked that the smaller size was pretty much the same price per ounce as the large size!
Addi from Texas
Honestly for the price, you don't get a whole lot of product. I have really dry skin and I used this product a year or so ago and I loved it! I had some other products to help hydrate my skin helping it I suppose. This product alone I have to use a lot more of to feel hydrated through the day/night and not rough in an hour. Considering the how much you get for the price and how much I'm having to use- I don't recommend or dry skin.
Rranc from Missouri
It's gel-based so it's very light-weight but super moisturizing. Doesn't break me out. Just a great every-day moisturizer
Perfect for fighting Seborrheic Dermatitis
Samantha from Los Angeles
My partner has Seborrheic Dermatitis and while doing some research online I found that most moisturizers contain fatty acids that feed the Seborrheic Dermatitis and make it worse. This one doesn't have those types of acids making it ideal. My partner has been using it for a few years now (along with the DERMAdoctor Calm Cool and Corrected Tranquility Cleanser) and has had almost no flair ups of the Seborrheic Dermatitis.
Just do yourself a favor... get it!!!
Toots from NJ
It's truly worth every penny. Only just a little pricey, and no SPF so you'll have to add them in separate or I typically use this in my nighttime routine. But it does what it says! MOISTURE!!!
Laurie from Texas
It's the best moisturizer ever. My skin is so greasy and using this product helps.
BEST MOISTURIZER EVER!!
Kayla from NC
I bought this moisturizer, because my skin was severely dehydrated. After two uses (AM & PM), I noticed a big change in my skin. It does not feel sticky, and does not leave your pores clogged. Also, did not affect my acne! Buying this forever!!
Not really a moisture surge
Alex from Chicago
Had high hopes for this product. I feel like it wasn't hydrating enough. I would have to use it twice to get moisturized.
Great .lassting moisturizer!
Jackie the poet from Jax, FL
Best part is it lasts a long time, doesn't cause breakouts on sensitive skin and is invisible under makeup.. Gives your skin a lift.
