This is my second day using the product and it's so good that I'm already writing a review! I have dry patches on my cheeks and an oily t-zone. I was hesitant to try this product because I thought it would over hydrate my face and make my t-zone more oily than it already is since every moisturizer that I have tried does that. OMG, that was NOT the case with this one! I have never had a moisturizer that has perfectly hydrated my face and kept it oil-free. This product is it! I wake up and wash my face in the morning, removing and left overs of my night cream. I pat my face dry and apply the gel on my face in a light layer. I must say at first, its almost too light that I feel that I need to apply more but I don't. Then I wait about a minute and start my make-up routine. Let me also say that before using this product, no matter how much setting powder or setting spray or moisturizer I used, my skin would get oily in about 2 hours. Now, let me tell you that after using this product, by the end of the day, my oily t-zone was gone! I was shocked!!! I didn't have too blot or anything.! My face stayed sooo soft and nice all day. This thing is gold! Please give it a try if you have skin like mine! If not, just return it if it doesn't work for u lol. Hope this help!
So i am a true skincare/all beauty junkie. I have a serious problem with constantly buying skin products, to "help" and "clear" my very oily, sensitive, consistently clogged, face. I have tried so many creams, gels, face washes, toners, treatments (besides chemical peel) to help clear my skin. My issue is not your typical "Acne",but rather a face full of closed comedones. Closed comedones are the flesh colored bumps on your skin, that won't budge, won't pop, but makes your skin texture bumpy and rough. Open comedones are visible pimples, and cystic acne that can be popped, where as closed comedones can be squeezed, yet never pop. It's because the pore is completely blocked with oil, dirt, and sebum. Nothing has ever gotten rid of them, and I have tried everything high and low. Having closed comedones and sensitive, oily skin, I really have to watch what I put on my face. I have experimented many different gel hydrators, moisturizers, eat, because cream or lotion moisturizers break me out so bad, and just cause more closed comedones. I use the Clinique 3 step system for oily skin, which really doesn't improve my face neither, but still use it. When I used the sample of this Moisture surge, Hydrated concentrate, I literally fell in love with this stuff. The little deluxe sample lasted me for about a week. I used it twice a day, morning and night, and I finally thought I found the right product for my face, which was a miracle. I gave the rest of the sample to my grandmother, and told her to try it, while I went to ulta and bought the full size. Now that i have been using this consistently off and on, I can say this product is decent, but not amazing. I feel like the sample worked better on my skin, than the full sized I own. True, it does moisturize, and it does even out my oily skin and sebum production, but this does nothing for my texture (closed comedones) I figured using this consistently, I would see some type of improvement in my skin problems overall, but this didn't really do anything for it. Also, if you pop a pimple, don't put this on afterwards, because IT WILL BURN. With that being said, It is a good lightweight, gel moisturizer for oily and combination skin. If you have acne, or closed comedones all over your face like me, this does nothing for it. It doesn't make it worse neither, it just kinda sits there, and keeps your skin matte. It's also sticky a bit after you first apply it, which makes it great for a primer. I don't wear makeup alot (because makeup emphasizes texture) and that's the last thing I wanted people to see, But I'm an avid makeup collector too, and this is a nice primer for preapplication for your foundation. This is not a Savior. This stuff is not a miracle gel. It's just decent. That's the best word to describe it. This is a 100% accurate review, so if you have skin like me.. Now you know. I'm sure this would be wonderful for dry skin, combination skin, and even oily skin with no acne, or texture issues. Man, what I would do for a clear face. One day, I will find the answer. Until then, Ill keep trying and reviewing for all the skin care junkies out there like me, who struggle with acne, closed comedones, and oily skin.

Karen from Wichita, KS
I have used Moisture Surge in it's various forms for quite a few years. I love it and like the way my foundation goes on over it. Don't have to wait ages for it to settle in my skin to put foundation on over it.
MarinaLi from CA
This lightweight gel-cream is a hydration powerhouse, delivering intense moisture and revitalization to my skin. It absorbs quickly, leaving my complexion plump, radiant, and perfectly hydrated. Even during dry weather, it keeps my skin supple and refreshed all day long. The non-greasy formula is a delight to apply, making it a staple in my skincare routine. An absolute must-have for anyone seeking intense hydration.
annaebi from georgia
this serum is one of my favorite from moisture surge collection! it has a great structure and blends very easily, hydrates skin the whole day and leaves soft finish
Kristin from Dallas, Tx
I have combo oily skin and use this as a night time moisturizer during the hotter months. My skin feels so smooth and supple in the morning when I wake up. It does feel sticky just after application but dries does fairly quickly. I just make sure I put it on with enough time for it to absorb before my face hits the pillow.
SuzyQ from Michigan
My skin is going through the change from not only dry winter but the "change" as well. My skin has been an absolute mess. I discovered this by chance, as I was purchasing some of the classic moisturizer for my mum. This took care of the horrid flakes within two days. I was amazed. I have noticed a positive change in my skin, in that it isn't as flaky, and my serums appear to be more effective. I love this! Will definitely continue using!
Orkhan39 from New York
I use it every day especially when weather is hot, without applying any other cream, under makeup. My skin feels great!
Amber from Kansas City MO
I have very dry skin around my nose and eye brows that is red and patchy. This has helped hydrate my skin and take away the redness. Definitely recommend for intense moisturizing
SJ44 from Washington
I really didn't think I needed one more layer of skincare, but this helps! If only I had been taking care of my skin this well in my 20s and 30s. Alas, all we can do is move forward. So, now, after cleanser, toner, watery lotion, I use this concentrate before moisturizer and eye serum/ cream. Lots of steps and products, but worth it. You're worth it. Give it a try!

very hydrating and lightweight
Codie from Missouri
I've used this product for years and it has been great for my combination skin. It moisturizes my T zone without making the rest of my face oily.
Kiblet from Illinois
At first I thought this didn't work, but when used with a cleansing system that's not stripping my skin, this works well. I oil cleanse, but Clinique has a nice extra mild cleanser, too, and an alcohol-free Clarifying Lotion version. It helps a lot to use something intended for moving it deeper into the skin—for example, the flat back side of the cleansing tools PMD makes. Then spritz your face and neck with a facial mist (Clinique has a Moisture Surge spray, for example), so the hyaluronic acid has water to grab onto, to hydrate and plump, and then massage the mist in with the tool as well. Follow with Moisture Surge Intense 72H cream (my choice) or the regular 100H gel cream if you don't need the *Intense" version. Use your tool to lightly pack it into skin. Also, this MS Hydrating Supercharge Concentrate (the original item I'm reviewing) mixes well with a ceramide capsule if you like those. Use the right system and this product will do what it is supposed to do.

I have been using this for years. A great moisturizer!
JR from Idaho
I love using this day and night to hydrate and plump the skin under my eyes without looking puffy. It also is lovely all over. I'm in my early 30s with combination acne prone skin. I love trying new beauty products but I still keep reaching for this one daily.
dd from Dubai, UAE
Honestly, after years of outdoor activities in harsh environmental conditions, I didn't think that my prematurely wrinkled skin could get any better. This product was recommended to me after my first online Clinique consultation. I decided to give it a try despite the gel format (I much prefer heavier creams). And wow! What a difference! I can't tell how it works or what it does but my prematurely wrinkled forehead got "ironed out" almost immediately. My skin is plump and feels fresh. The bonus is that it is very gentle on my skin. I tried anti-aging serums in the past but they would cause my skin to break out badly.
This supercharged concentrate works wonders for me! My skin still has other issues that bother me: discoloration and redness. I will try other products for that. Thank you Clinique!

Hydrating and refreshing
BertaD from Fairfield, CA
This is a great way to add some moisture. It goes on quickly so I can add a moisturizer shortly after and go on with my day. It even smells good. It's a bit pricey but lasts a while.
mahip from Nashville, TN
I used this for a week and my skin had this excellent touch of glow. I definitely suggest this product. It also goes great with the Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly.
szanne from glenrock,wy
i just like it
Janeane from Pocatello
I use this daily around my eyes. This is the only product I've found that I can put close to my eyes to help with dry patches. I feel hydrated all day
Anet from Claymont
Really great product, my skin feels so hydrated after using this
BM from Bronx, Ny
Good to use at night for skin.

My skin has been drying out due to prescription acne treatments, the Moisture Surge line has been my savior. Love the jumbo sizes!
JG88 from Southaven, MS
My skin absolutely loves the Moisture Surge Concentrate, I apply it at least once a day! I use it first thing in the morning, about an hour before I put on my make-up. It works like a charm, every time!
