Review: Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Moisturizer

Got Dry Skin? This Moisturizer Is So Addictive

There may well be some habit-forming ingredient in Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Gel-Cream ($34), because I'm having a hard time putting it down. Ever since the stuff came across my desk I've been slathering it on like I just wandered out of the Mojave.

I really like the texture; it's like a more emollient version of aloe gel, so it doesn't give your skin that unctuous feel that heavy moisturizers often do, and you can layer on as much as you feel inclined to. Gel cream formulas also work on both oily and dry skin types, so most people will be able to use it without incident, and it'd be a good one-shot moisturizer for combination skin. Claims the ads make about plumping up skin and filling fine lines are a stretch, though — it's a really nice product, but there's nothing antiaging about it. My suggestion would be to keep Moisture Surge around for daily use, and buy something else with retinol in it for fine lines.

This moisturizer is FAB-U-LOUS!! Not only does it really moisturize my skin, it's so gentle and not the least bit irritating. Love this soooo much!

i looooooove this product and have been using it a long time prob since it first came out because i have a feeling its been well over 5 yrs...while i dont think its a daily moisturizer per se rather i believe you should incorporate it into ur current daily routine.. in the summer: great for skin relief of sun as it contains aloe in the winter: its like an intense moisture mask that beats flaky skin thanks to heaters etc also highly recommend Clinique's Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer...i use it daily in substitute of any powder or liquid foundation definitely you still need antiaging and eye cream but add this too ur current regime and it will be supple and soft cheap sub: garnier moisture rescue skin gel

I LOVE THIS MOISTURIZER. i sometimes have problems with rosacea and when it flares up this is the only product that doesn't burn/irritate my skin.
