Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray

What is it?

‘Water your skin. Take along a refreshing face spray for showers of thirsty skin relief.’

It’s a hydrating, moisturising spritz with a major kick.


Who is it for?

Everyone. Especially dehydrated and dry skins.

What’s in it?

Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Centella Asiatica (Hydrocotyl) Extract, Saccharomyces Lysate Extract, Yeast ExtractFaexExtrait De Levure, Caffeine, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile), Trehalose, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sucrose, Sorbitol, Disodium EDTA, Potassium Sorbate, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol

Possibly acne/allergy/troubling for some ingredients?

Not really.

Natural? Organic? Man made? Vegan?

Predominantly MM with natural elements.

The product is completely vegan, however…

Tested on animals/sold in China?

Clinique do not test on animals, but they are sold in China, who ‘reserve the right to test imported products on animals’. Doesn’t mean they do, just means they can if they want to. Ironically, you are much more likely to be tested in this way if you are a smaller, niche brand that is unknown to the Chinese authorities. Something Estee Lauder Companies usually don’t have an issue with..but there we are.

What’s not in it?

Synthetic fragrance

Parabens

Mineral oil

Animal derivatives

How do you use it?

Spritz when needed. 

What’s good about it?
Everything. It’s an oil-free hydrator that actually does the job without dehydrating your skin ten minutes after you’ve sprayed it…
Much more than a ‘spritz’, this is really a liquid moisturiser. Essential for people with dry or dehydrated skins, great for helping really shiny skins calm down a tad, can be used over makeup and is 100% the first thing I am packing for my next flight anywhere.
Fragrance-free, so you’re not spraying essential oils in your eye, which, let’s face it, is always a bonus.
And as an aside, the best ‘spray’ function in a product, ever. Even distribution all over the face, no soaking of your clothes or hairline.

What’s not so good about it?

From a formula perspective, nothing. 

Where to use in your routine?

After acid toning or as and when you need it. I carry mine around like the sad woman that I am. 

Similar products?

Not really. This is kind of on its own. Serozinc is water with added zinc (albeit great for that purpose), Melvita’s Pulpe de Rose contains oil, so is not great for over makeup or the already-shiny. 

I can’t think of any – if you can, leave a mention in the comments and I’ll check them out.

Available priced £21.00 for 125ml from all Clinique counters and Clinique.co.uk (which incidentally, is still one of those Lauder Companies websites that I’d like to get my hands on, but I digress).
