My skin was suffering from major sunburn; it was so severe that my skin started peeling off. Around my cheeks, I got red rashes, almost like acne. It was a very horrible experience. When I went to a dermatologist, he said that my skin is dehydrated and needs moisture. So he recommended me this Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator.

Soon after, I started applying it, and now, it has been five weeks. This cream came as a blessing. It is so mild, and the texture is so light. It gives me the right hydration and moisture. It has also reduced the redness around my cheeks, and my skin stopped peeling off.

The only thing I don’t really like about this product is the packaging. I never liked the tub packaging. And now that I’ve realized how sensitive my skin is, I am not willing to risk anything. So instead of my finger, I use a spatula.

I’m having such a great experience with Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator. So yes, I will be repurchasing it and recommending it as well. Go for it!

PROS

Oil-free

Lightweight

CONS

Takes time to get absorbed

Chemical smell

Can get sticky


I have been using this product for over a month, so with the experience I will say that in terms of texture it feels light, same as Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief.

However, this product has a strong chemical smell which I found unpleasant. It also takes a longer time to get absorbed into the skin and sometimes it feels sticky. I regret purchasing it.

4.6/5

PROS

Makes the skin soft

Does not cause breakouts

Non-greasy

A little goes a long way

Non-sticky

Deep hydration

CONS

Effects don't last long

Need to reapply


I've used up three jars of this Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator. I love it so much! My skin is really sensitive and dry, so the hydration it gives me is everything.

It makes my skin feel soft and supple. It doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky as most day creams do. The only negative thing I have to say about this product is that it doesn't really feel like it lasts on my skin. I need to re-apply in the afternoon.

4.3/5

PROS

Less quantity for the price


Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator is one of the best moisturizers I've used. I have been struggling with dry skin for the past winters, but this year things are looking different for me ever since I started using it. My skin feels hydrated and so soft. Totally worth it!
