Some of my favourite day and night creams are from Clinique, I have a favourite for each season but there is one I always go back to no matter what the temperatures outside are. This is my third or fourth pot of the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief and I just realised I’ve never done a review on it.
I love the whole Moisture Surge range and I can’t wait to try the new Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate which would probably be perfect to use on a summer holiday.
When seasons change, my skin’s needs change, as well and it can be a bit difficult, considering I’m dealing with combination dehydrated skin that occasionally gets blemishes. At the beginning of the spring, I decided to start using very light moisturisers which were lovely but the level of moisture they provided just wasn’t enough for me. Then I remembered that I’d purchased a new pot of Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief a few months back, so it was time to start using it again.
The texture is of a cream-gel and as with all Clinique moisturisers, I need just a tiny bit to cover my whole face. It doesn’t feel heavy and absorbs quickly although it makes my skin look a bit more dewy than I’d prefer but once I apply my foundation, it somehow sits better than usual and I even think my makeup lasts a bit longer when I use this moisturiser as a base. It feels very nourishing and in a matter of days, the dry patches around my face are gone.
I also use the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief as a multipurpose moisturiser when I travel. The little 30 ml pot is really handy to have in the bag and apply the cream on any dry areas that may appear while travelling.
Just like all Clinique products, this one is fragrance-free and I love that it doesn’t break me out which sometimes happens with more hydrating creams. My skin feels soft and smooth after using the moisturiser, it also looks radiant and fresh and I can use this cream in so many ways – as a multipurpose moisturiser, as a 5-minute mask to just bring back the glow, on top of my regular moisturiser for a boost of hydration in the winter… Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief feels soothing and refreshing and I seem to always go back to it.
