Most Helpful Positive Review Best Moisturizer Ever
I never write reviews on products but I just had too for this product. I'm 19 and This winter my skin has been so dry. I have tried every drugstore moisturizer imaginable. The more I tried the worse it got. I have a lot of skin sensitivities and needed help fast. My skin was cracked, flaky and peeling all over. I went to Ulta and asked someone to help me find a moisturizer. They asked my price range and I said I didn't care I just needed something, they brought me over to the Clinique counter and the lady there was amazing. She looked at my skin and gave me 4 free samples of things to try. After a week I had used up all the samples and I would say my skin was about 75% better. I went back talked to the lady again and she tweaked some of the products up and now my skin is 100% better. All the products I received were amazing but the 72 hour moisture surge was really what did the trick. This product saved my skin this winter and I would recommend it to anyone. If you have really really dry skin then this product is for you! After 8 full days of using this product I have 0 dry patches and flakiness and my skin has never looked better.
Most Helpful Critical Review It�s not a �bad� product..Clinique just has better
I bought a 50ml jar of this gel-cream and now have a little less than half left so I feel I can give this product the most honest rating.
For the first few days, I didn�t experience any increased feeling of hydration in my skin compared to the other Moisture Surge products and there was little to no moisture that lasted even through the night, let alone 72 hours. But after about 3-4 days of using it in the am and pm, I did finally start to notice that my skin was a bit more comfortable in the mornings and after washing. Here�s the thing though, the Moisture Surge Skin Fortifier provides much more instant hydration, and lasts for 24 hours (a claim I completely agree with) from the very first time you use it. The 72 hour Auto-Replenisher also leaves the feeling of a film on the skin. This film is to prevent moisture loss and while it�s not the most unpleasant thing, I could certainly live without my skin having a slick feeling to it. Where this hydrator and it�s sealing barrier is really useful is on the lips. It does help to seal in the product�s moisture and feels nice on the lips.
For those of us with very dry/dry skin, we need to moisturize in the morning and evening anyways to keep ahead of dehydrated skin, so I don�t see the value of a moisturizer that needs to last 72 hours (and it doesn�t seem to anyways). The Moisture Surge Skin Fortifier iimmediately quenches the thirstiest skin for a full day (24 hours...and I agree it does last that long) and has no film sitting on the skin. The 72-hour Auto-Replenisher is by no means a �bad� product, it�s just that Clinique has another option that tackles dehydration so much better.
Note: I did not receive this as a free trial and my review is not part of a contest.
PS. Clinique, could you please make a lip treatment product that workes like the 72-hour replenisher? It works great for dry, crusty lips. My daughter�s lips were so dry over Winter that one day her lips split in several places causing her to bleed all around her mouth. A couple days of using the 72-hr replenisher and her lips were back to normal!!

I use this alone as my moisturizer and under foundation. IT is the perfect texture and it super hydrates without feeling greasy or tacky and it sinks in quickly. I am hooked.

Perfect moisturizer, It's not sticky, it's soft.
I am started using this product and like it!
I'll keep buying until no longer need it. Thank you

We all know Clinique moisture surge is good. I'm loving this travel size since the full size is so expensive. If want this product and to save money, buy this one! A little goes a long way.
The best I've ever tried
cvb111 from Virginia
A couple years ago, I took a break from using Moisture Surge to save some money. I told myself that a drugstore gel moisturizer would work just as well. After a year, the drugstore version definitely didn't make my skin look or feel as moisturized and soft as Moisture Surge. However, instead of coming back to Moisture Surge, I tried a moisturizer that is *more* expensive as Moisture Surge. But after about 6 months, I came back to Moisture Surge, and my skin looks better and feels better. I was on video with my sister recently, and she said my skin looked so firm and glowing. The only thing I've done differently lately is switching back to Moisture Surge, and I think that's why my skin is looking so good. :)

I am very pleased with my purchase of Clinique Moisture Surge. My skin feels so soft.
Best cream of my life
Mariya from Ukraine
This cream is fantastic! I have dry combination cream and after using Moisture Surge Hydrator I feel velvety smoothness.
Moisture Surge is also suitable as a base for makeup.The smell is pleasant, very gentle, unobtrusive, which is very important for me! After 15 minutes, the smell is gone
I will buy this again!

There is no smell but it is such a great product!!
Rustysue from Neenah
After opening my jars of Moisture Surge intense, I noticed a strong chemical smell. I love the way it works but that smell is very off putting.
Love this moisturizer!!

I love this moisturizer. It was given to me as a sample by a friend, and it makes my skin feel so soft. It goes on cool and smooth and soaks into my skin. I highly recommend it.
Bring back the original skin fortifying hydrator!
former customer from Boston, MA
I have very dry skin and this just doesn't help. The old creme that was white and thicker (not the 72 hour one) worked so much better. UGH.
A wonderful moisturizer
Mary from St Louis
This is a great product and I really like the way it make my skin soft and moist. It has no scent. I recommend it to everyone.
My favorite moisturizer!
NewYorker28 from New York, NY
This is my favorite moisturizer. I have oily skin in the summer and very dry skin in the winter, and it works well on both skin types. It doesn't get greasy in the summer, which is a problem I've had with other moisturizers. In the winter, sometimes I will also put on the Moisture Surge concentrate or mask as an added layer to combat dryness.
I like the original formula better
KM412 from Pittsburgh
Because Clinique discontinued the Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator, which I had used on my sensitive, combination skin for years, I tried this one instead. Not thrilled. It definitely does not moisturize like the old formula. I have rosacea and use azelaic acid suspension which can dry out my skin. The original formula kept my skin hydrated and healthy. This formula does not. However, very few companies make oil free, fragrance free moisturizers that do much of anything. So I guess I'm going to stick with this, for now.
My Skin Loves This

This is without a doubt the most amazing moisturizer I have used and a little goes a very long way. Definitely just one of my Clinique's products.
Soft skin in a jar !
TLee from New York
Absolutely a must have product. Hydration can not get any better than with Moisture Surge. I have been using this product for years and will never stop .
Great for dry skin
Connimari7 from Cedar Rapids Iowa
This was included in the All About Moisture set that was included with my total order during the holiday sale. I've always used the Original Moisture Surge and am not always a fan of changes. That being stated I absolutely love the 72hour version!! I don't need to look plumper than I do but I know my facial skin looks amazing when I use this. I mainly put it on at night and I never leave a greasy mess on my pillowcase, during the day I use the Oil Free gel, but when the air's dry I put this on over it and my skin does a happy dance all day long!! Thank you for giving me opportunity to try this, it's a winner for sure!
I put I received a sample since it was a gift, but the set includes full size products.
Hydrating and lightweight

Best moisturizer ever , i will never use other brands
Was on the verge of getting Botox until.....
RitaMN from Minnesota
I starting using a little bit of this cream every night before bed for a week, then the next week I started blending the Vitamin C serum into it - a little every morning and and a little every night ( a little goes a long way!). It's been 10-11 days so far and I can't believe the difference in my skin!! I just turned 58 and hated my mouth lines, sagging jawline, and crows feet. Now my skin looks firm and smooth and uplifted, jawline and cheekbones smooth and defined and eyes smooth and distinctively less wrinkles! The deep lines on either side of my mouth are smoothed out - I am simply amazed at the difference, and in such a short time!! Now Botox can wait! :)
