Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Moisturiser

When it comes to moisturiser I wish I could just use one all year round and be happy, but I can't. Im a beauty addict, Im constantly testing and trying moisturisers out. I like to swap and change frequently. If I wasn't like this though and could happily use the same products for years, like my mother, then Clinique's Moisture Surge could very well be my holy grail moisturiser.

Ive been reaching for Moisture Surge a hell of a lot lately. The weathers getting colder Ive been experiencing a few dry patches, plus Ive been testing a whole lot of different cleansers lately, trying to find my perfect one, some of which have been drying my skin out. When my skin starts playing up, I always think its safe to turn to something that you know and trust.

Moisture surge is designed to provide skin with 24 hour moisture, with the website claiming the following:

"Light, comfortable cream/gel plumps skin with hydration for a full 24 hours. Fine lines, flakiness and tightness are washed away. In their place-a sense of supple, firm, vibrant well-being, even through shifts in humidity. One 'drink' and skin looks and feels happier, healthier".

I like my moisturisers to be light and absorbs fast, ready for application of make up. I cannot stand a greasy heavy film on my face and don't like my face to feel like it has moisturiser on the surface, I just like it to feel soft and supple, look hydrated and be a perfect base for my make up.

Moisture Surge ticks all these boxes with ease! The texture is described as a gel/cream and no other moisturiser soaks into my skin as much as this does. It does literally drink it up. It so cooling to apply and instantly makes my face feel refreshed It leaves it soft and smooth to the touch a minute after application and it is the perfect base for make up. My make up also seems to last a lot longer and still looks pretty fresh by the end of the day. Its never aggravates existing blemishes/spots when my skins playing up, which some moisturisers can do. Its definitely holy grail material for me. Its a reliable product that just perks my skin up. Now I finally have a full size jar (only ever had a sample in the past) I think its a moisturiser I will constantly have on hand.

Its just a shame I cannot stop myself trying buying and trying other products eh! But then I wouldn't be here either, providing you lovely lot with so many reviews!

A more in depth review of this fantastic product can be found HERE on the lovelyYinkas blog.


  1. I love Clinique moisturisers - Superdefense is so good for comforting winter skin!

  2. ooh i definitely want to try this out. it sounds delightful :)

  3. I usually switch to Clinique Turnaround in winter, but I might give this a go instead. I also find my skin definitely needs different products for different seasons. I think we've been blessed with a long warm period this year as summer started early, although it also has fizzled out early. I'm thinking it's almost time to invest in my annual Clinique! xx

  4. @ The Bristol Beauty Blog - Ooo Ive never tried Turnaround. Hopefully you'll do a review on it :P

  5. oooooo I want this too now hehe! becky xo

  6. This is one of my favourites too but if you have not tried turnaround then i would give it a shot its brilliant it leaves your skin silky smooth xx

  7. This is great to use under or over another moisturiser when it's really cold as well x

  8. My post has just finished. I raved about on my blog a while back and it's since been pointed out to me that, that MD skincare stuff is very similar, if not the same in terms of the effect it gives.

  9. Ohhh I'll have to go and have a read Yinka.
