I have been obsessed with moisturisers lately.
As someone with combination skin, it’s always been a struggle to find a moisturiser which leaves my skin’s thirst quenched without things looking like an oil spill in an hour’s time. I can’t even tell you how many moisturisers I have tried particularly over the last year or so.
I had seen quite a few people raving about Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator for a while and finally made the leap and purchased my own – and boy, was I satisfied with the results!
This moisturiser will leave your skin feeling dewy, hydrated, smooth and your glow will last all day!
The formula is between a cream and a gel and there is a fragrance to it, but it is almost undetectable, so I believe it would be terrific if perfumed products react with your skin/allergies.The product feels like it melts into your skin as you apply it. A little goes a long way, with the product applying seamlessly.
I have experimented with the moisturiser over the past week, using it at night as an overnight cream, in the morning as my day cream and also as a primer before applying makeup. It is thick enough that it provides my skin with the nourishment it needs while I sleep, while not being too heavy for day use. My makeup also applies really well over the top, without any primers – although I do powder after application in the mornings to set my makeup as well as around lunchtime if there is too much shine.
Slowly, I am becoming a huge fan of Clinique and quite a few of their products (their Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is AMAZING as well as their eye cream). I love the gentleness and simplicity that the products have as well as how my skin has been looking while using them.
Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator can be purchased at Sephora for $60 (AU) – with how little of the product you need to use for it to be effective, I really believe the cost is justified.
