Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate is an effective water-gel hydrator that immediately melts into the skin, without leaving behind a greasy residue, and it infuses the skin with a serious surge of hydration– just as the name would suggest. It is fragrance-free, formulated for most types of skin and it leaves skin soft, smooth, hydrated and balanced. Furthermore, it contains Hyaluronic Acid- which effectively helps to retain hydration while lightly plumping the skin. I am personally very fond of water-gel moisturizer formulas for my normal/combination skin, and I think that this is a good one. I like to layer this under my regular moisturizer du jour, and find that it offers my skin sustained hydration throughout the day.

  1. I used to live at the Clinique counter. When it was gwp time the lines would be so long. I bought so much of it back then. I haven't used anything though in a long time but I really like that they have upped their ingredients.

    1. This definitely is a nice improvement over the ingredients back in the days that we both stood in line at those counters, and long before we were scrutinizing the ingredients in the things that we slathered on!

  2. Ah, Clinique was my first department store brand back in the day. And when they launched Moisture Surge, I literally bought it immediately and used it for years. It makes sense that they should add a serum to the Moisture Surge line up. I will try it at some point.

    1. I think that was the case for so many people! I dabbled in a few of their products, but my mom indoctrinated me into the world of Erno Laszlo when I was a teenager!
