This week's MVP. Clinique Moisture Surge


I hit the Clinique store with a bang on Wednesday evening. Thank you so much to all of you that came out to say hello and talk all things skin. 
And a huge thank you to the team at Clinique who stayed an hour after closing so that we could see some very important latecomers. 

Whilst recommending this to nearly every person on Wednesday, I realised that I have never actually talked about it on here.

So this week's MVP is Clinique's Moisture Surge. 

Do you need it?
If you are perpetually dehydrated/dry/acne/dull etc then I would definitely have a look at it.

It's a 'wet' moisturiser, so not only is it great for giving you a quick shot of moisture if your skin feels 'tight', you only need to use the smallest amount to see/feel the benefit. I recommended it to a lot of people. Boys and girls.


And: it's £34.00. Check it out here: www.clinique.co.uk

  1. Would this be good for combo (shiny tzone) skin? also, did you get the chance to ever try their even better essence lotion/toner? both the dry and oily skin versions have great ingredients and they have something similar to the sk-ii Pietra in them. Would love to hear your thoughts on that but when I talked to a clinique rep they only seemed to have it stocked at sephora. Another weird thing is that it's described as something for Asian skin. Weird.

  2. I just purchased the caudalie sorbet moisturizer today because my skin has been very dehydrated. Would you recommend this instead? I also have clogged pores on my jawline an forehead. Any helped would be appreciated. Thank you! I use first aid beauty milk oil cleaser for second cleanse. Have used ptr pads before but they were too strong for my skin, and the first aid beauty pads sadly irritated my skin further.

  3. From the same brand, the All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage rollerball is a wonderful product, very hydrating and cooling. I always take it with me when I am travelling and I highly recommend it.

  5. Hi Caroline, you mentioned in your cheat sheet that if you are my age (34) you should invest in a good dedicated night product. What is your opinion on Algenist Genius moisturiser? Thank you!

  6. This sounds like a nice product, is it better than bodyshop vit e and avene anti rouge?

    Also, do you have tips for a 'capsule skincare' regime for when I go backpacking for 6 to 12 months in Australia? I'll do spf and cleansers, but I'm unsure about (heavy) toners and light moisturisers because I find some glide off when sweating.

    1. Great question! I'd also love a post on a pared down travelling /holiday skincare kit. I'd love to be able to take everything but can't (unless I just don't take my kids on holiday with me!)

  7. I'm so glad you mentioned this one! I got this as a sample when I ordered something from Clinique and wasn't sure if it was good or bad. Now I can add it to my rotation!

  9. I was once told by a clinique staff to use this as a pre (thin layer) and post moisturiser (as much as my skin needed it) . It did improve the way the facial eczema I had (I don't anymore,thx to a better diet and Caroline...) though the big pot didn't mast long.
    I am now using the institut Esthederm creme d'eau cellulaire or the gel. Both are amazing!!!

    On an other topic, is there some spf post coming soon, as I just saw a french beauty blogger/youtuber review a new bioderma spf in an aerosol format to top over makeup. And if not too much something about Esthederm sun protection as I love them, only use them but I don't really understand how they work (and Ruth review a few years ago didn't help much).

    Thx so much.

  11. Hi Caroline - I know you recently reviewed a product from Paula's Choice and I'd be interested to know your opinion of their clear regular strength set? I'm a teen and have been experiencing mild acne around my chin and jawline for about 8 months (ish). I currently use the Clinique Mild Clarifying lotion but the idea of a acid toner with a higher concentration is very appealing to me as I haven't seen many results from the clinique one which I believe to only have 0.5%. Thanks! Hannah

    1. Hi! Hope you don't mind me throwing my 2 cents in. I have used the Clear regular strength 2% bha liquid for about 3 months and I like it a lot. Before using a liquid I was using LRP Effaclar K, which is 1.5% based in a lotion so I was nervous about using the liquid in case it was too drying, but honestly I used it twice a day, every day and it's not at all drying. It's got glycerin and sodium hyluronate in there too so that helps retain some moisture. I tried the extra strength one a couple of times but the liquid seems to be slightly thicker and leaves a sort of film on my skin, so I much prefer the regular strength. Maybe if you are going from 0.5% to 2% just use every other night rather than twice a day to begin?

  12. This and the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense are amazing! On the days I wear this too work I find I never really have to touch my makeup up, maybe just a spritz in the afternoon and I'm good.

  13. I tried that and it did nothing for me except give me a red face.

  14. Hi Caroline! I got a sample of this in a 'gift with purchase' recently (have not had a chance to use it yet) and was told at the counter that this is to be used after normal moisturiser or randomly during the day as a 'touch-up' if the skin feels dehydrated. Do you think this is the best way to use it? I was planning on just using it as a normal moisturiser, not as a second one because that seems excessive to me.

  15. I love this stuff and have been using it for years! It is very nice particularly in the summer when you are dry but you would like something that does not feel greasy. I also use it together with a few drops of foundation on days when I want lighter coverage.

  16. This is my favorite summer time moisturizer. I just started using it again over a week ago since the temperatures have warmed up where I live. It has great cooling & hydrating feeling when applied and moisturizes without being greasy. I love to spritz a rosewater spray on top of it after it has soaked into my skin.

  17. I love using this product. I've only used it for a few months but my skype italian teachers at http://preply.com/en/italian-by-skype already noticed that my face is becoming more beautiful even if I didn't tell them I've been using it.

  20. Interesting to see people's comments here about using this pre-moisturiser. I have been using this in this way for a couple of weeks as for me it feels refreshing but not moisturising enough on its own. Feels a lot like the Vichy aqualia serum to me but without the fragrance. Using it alone, my definitely not dry skin started to get dry and flaky. Have to pop a bit of cream on top.
