My Experience with Clinique Moisture Surge –

First let me tell you why I got this expensive moisturizer when I could have got so many good moisturizers at a fraction of price. I was having PRP treatment for my skin those days due to many acne scars I have on my face. The cosmetologist recommended this Clinique moisturizer to me and I got it from Clinique store. That was in 2017 and I am using it since then and the pics are from that time only. I am reviewing it so late that this particular moisturizer is discontinued now and a new auto-replenish one is out in market. It comes in a cute tub packaging, transparent tub with silver screw open lid. No separate spatula is provided and hence taking out the creme is a task, for hygiene reasons. Better they would have packed this in tube instead of tub. Its so good that I use it for my clients too as most of them need that extra dose of hydration and it certainly gives better results with makeup. It has suited all of them till today and hence, I can say that it suits all skin types equally. For extra dry skin clients, I top it up with Prevage moisturizer which is again awesome. So, I got this because it was recommended by my cosmetologist and I haven’t looked back. It is perfectly suited to my oily skin. It hydrates so well but no trace of oil in it. A little quantity is needed normally and that justifies the cost. I use this daily morning and evening as it is weightless on my skin and under makeup too. For night time, I top it up with my serum and night cream, of course. It gets absorbed in skin pretty fast and leaves no tackiness or irritation or smell. Its fragrance free. The colour and texture are oh-so-pretty. I am in love with this.
