This moisturiser is a saviour for people with oily skin. It creates a perfecr base for foundation.The formula is very creamy and smooth and it does not have any fragrance to it. It hydrates my skin and at the same time it mattifies within seconds and blurs out the appearance of open pores. .

Clinique's products are good but expensive. I read reviews and ask my friends about the product before purchasing it as I don't want to invest on something which don't suit me. Similarly when I read and heard reviews about Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer, I was confused about the mixed emotions each one gave me. Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer comes in a bright blue tub with white screw cap. The packaging looks cute but I don't feel it hygienic. Once I open the tub the cream gets in contact with the air which may lower the effects of cream. The price is expensive for 30ml product. I feel convenient to carry it in my bag as the tub is small. The color of the product is white with a tint of pink. It has a consistency between a lotion and a cream. The texture is smooth and glides gently on skin. It gets absorbed easily into skin after blending the product using fingers. You can use a spatula if you feel that it is unhygienic to use your fingers. The product claims to blur the imperfections and give hydration to skin. Like it said the product blurs imperfections to an extent on application instantly. But doesn't hide newly formed red acne. It hydrates the skin. It makes oily skin greasier after 2-3 hours. It can be used as a moisturizer for a combination skin. It does not provide the total moisture required for dry skin and it is better to use a good moisturizer. The skin appear to be cakey with dry patches for dry skin due to lack of heavy moisture required for the skin. It does not have any strong smell. It says it doesn't clog pores and doesn't cause any breakouts but my friend said it aggravated tiny zits on her face. I am not sure that all will encounter this problem, may be she had a sensitive skin. It can be used as a primer for makeup. It gives a semi matte finish. If you have a normal clear skin then this cream would suit you as it hydrates and blurs slight imperfections.

nice matte finish, but too expensive..
3/5

PROS


I got this moisturizer from Clinique because of my face wash. I am using Clinique Liquid Facial Soap for years now, and it has done amazing things to my combination acne prone skin.This moisturizer comes in a fresh, bright blue plastic tub with a screw lid. I personally don’t really prefer tub packaging because once you unscrew the lid, the cream gets exposed to the air and it is unhygienic. To prevent this, I make sure that my hands are clean before applying it. It is travel-friendly, considering its size. The texture is thick and creamy, which easily blends on the skin.I started using this moisturizer a month back with a lot of excitement, but I think I am not that excited about it anymore. I say this because maybe my expectations were really high. I like the mattifying action and the primer aspect of this moisturizer. It is the only aspect that seems to work well. The moisturizing part, however, leaves me unsatisfied. Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer dried me out, so I have to apply another moisturizer on top of it to really feel the hydration. This is bizarre because that's the last thing I want to do. Maybe I'm not using it right, or there is something in the formulation that my skin is not fond of.It is really more of a primer than anything else. I won’t say I hate it, nor will I say I love it. It falls in the middle. But considering its price, I will not purchase it again.

an absolute No for oily skin
2.3/5

PROS


I was looking forward to this moisturizer a lot, but unfortunately, after two weeks of use, I realize that it does not work for my oily skin.Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer has a thick, matte primer-like finish. Whenever I applied it, I never felt my skin getting the hydration it needs, instead, it makes me look dull and unfresh. Despite the initial matte finish, I struggled with pretty lousy grease by the middle of the day, so I have to powder my skin very often.I don’t think I will recommend it to oily skin types. Initially, it gives me a matte finish, but I wish it stayed that way for long. I think it will work better on combination skin.

has caused breakouts; not worth the price
2.6/5

PROS


To be honest, I was a bit disappointed after purchasing Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer. I usually love all things from Clinique, but this moisturizer aggravated my very sensitive skin, and it gave me breakouts.It is true that the texture is smooth and blends very easily and also gives a blur effect but my sensitive skin is not reacting to it positively. I am going to stop using it. Annoying how I wasted my money!

PROS


I tried a sample of this moisturizer to see if this was a right fit for me. I have normal to combination skin, and I tend to get confused as to what to use. But once I started using this moisturizer which was a month ago, I must say I noticed a major difference in the way my skin looks. Instead of an oily finish, my skin looked dewy and fresh. I am on my way to get the bigger package.However, I wish it came with sun protection. Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer is light in texture, so to apply anything on it is easy. Overall, it is a decent moisturizer.
