PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "I've had like three of the bigger containers of these and I cannot get enough. I have normal to dry skin and this feels amazing the second I put it on!" in 801 reviews
  • "A couple years ago in high school I used lotions on my face that broke me out and caused me to peel on the drier areas of my face. Macy's had this time during the winter where they were giving these and well who doesn't like free things. My family and I went and we got a whole bunch of them. From the first day I used it I loved it. I didn't break out as much anymore and my skin didn't peel. There isn't any smell to it and it's so light yet moisturizing. My skin stays moisturizing throughout the day and when I apply it at night I wake up with my face feeling so soft. The only con to this product would have to be the price. I have repurchased this product a couple times and it's quite pricey so I usually get it around the times that Macy's have the bonus gifts. I have recommended this product to my friends with oily skin or dry skin and they love it just as much as i do. . . besides the price it's really an amazing product." in 523 reviews
  • "Even though it's called "moisture surge" this moisturizer still manages to feel light and airy with no oily or greasy residues. I have combination skin that's also very sensitive, but I can use this for an all over moisturizer without breaking out. Although it's expensive, it's a great investment and the jar does last a while. It really is the best moisturizer out there!" in 300 reviews

Got a sample size of this and been occasionally using it, so I decided
to pack it for a trip. New Mexico is a very dry place and windy, and my
combo/oily skin always acts up when I travel here. The wind causes
chafing on my nose and cheeks, greasy T zone and the dry air and sun
take a toll on my fair and sensitive skin.

It's a light feeling
moisturizer, but really does the trick for my dry areas and doesn't
create an oil slick in my T zone. I can even use it around my eyes and
it gives enough moisture without causing irritation. It sinks in my
skin, not making a greasy barrier. Since going foundation free, I wear
this moisturizer a lot, and my skin looks pretty good. The main active
ingredients are Hyaluronic acid and silicones, and usually silicone
cause me immediate break outs. But that hasn't happened and it really
makes my skin look very supple and dewy, but I don't feel oily. It
hasn't clogged my pores and doesn't cause dirt to stick to my face. I
usually don't have to reapply during the day.

I have been using
the Clinique Smart daily moisturizer with SPF for the winter and it is
rich, but I have seen some pore clogging with the sunscreen. A lot of
sunscreens do this to me. Trying a mineral sunscreen with this
moisturizer and will see if that stops the clogging.

At $30 a
jar, this is a much more cost effective option compaired to the Smart
moisturizer at $54 a jar. Minus the sunscreen. And once again, it's in a
jar. Hopefully Clinique will get with the program, and start phasing
out jars. Really love Clinique. I'll be considering this as a full size
purchase.

I have been on the hunt for a new day moisturizer and went into Ulta to explore Clinique. I have not had much experience with them. I spoke with the Clinique person and I was interested in the Clinique Moisture surge. I liked that it had Hyaluronic Acid in it and that it was a gel-cream hybrid. I took a sample size. I have been using it for about 2 days and I have to say that I really like it! I have oily to combo skin that can get dry in the winter. It's not greasy at all yet it supplies great hydration. It feels very light. It has no fragrance which is a plus. My skin felt soft and clean. I plan on buying the full size I believe. The only downside is that it comes in a jar. I have been trying to get skincare that comes either in a squeeze tube or a pump because I have been reading more and more about how a jar can be unsanitary and also not hold antioxidants well.

I love this product. I received a free container from Ulta during one of their giveaways last fall. When winter rolled around, my regular moisturizer just wasn't cutting it so I tried this one. It helped me so much!! I noticed a huge difference when I was regularly using it vs when I forgot to or tried to use something else. I was so sad when I used all of my first jar, so I had to buy another. I was a little deterred by the price tag at first, and put off buying it, but saw a dramatic decline in the health of my skin. So I bit the bullet and bought the large jar and am glad I did. I use it regularly and the jars do last awhile, as a little goes a long way. The product seems like it will be a bit heavy or sticky initially but absorbs quickly. Within the time it takes to finish the next step in my nightly routine, I can no longer feel the gel anymore.

There is a reason why this product has almost 5 stars here on Influenster. I got a deluxe sample in one of my beauty boxes a few months ago. I thought it would be a nightmare on my oily skin which is why I just let it sit in my stash for months. Well when I started shopping my stash and using it, I fell in love immediately. 

I only use it at night before I go to bed because I prefer super lightweight moisturizers before I do my makeup. However, it doesn't feel greasy and I could tell it was improving my daily complexion and my skin gets less oily throughout the day. 

I have been using the deluxe sample for weeks now and am almost out, but I am pretty impressed how many uses I can get out of the small container. My only con is how expensive it is. A little goes a long way though.

I really wanted to love this product. But it just didn't live up to my expectations. I have quite dry skin and was really disappointed. It has a gel like consistency that your skin soaks right up however I didn't find it particularly moisturizing and ended up having to put another cream on top, something I shouldn't have to do at this price point. On the upside, the packaging is quite nice but it is a pot so you end up having to stick your fingers into the product. There's not much scent. I would not repurchase this product, however I could see people with less dry skin really loving this product.

LOL as you can all tell I’m in love with this moisturizer and I am almost out which means I need to hurry up and go get some more because this stuff is amazing. I have combination skin and a lot of times my skin will get super super dry But ever since I have started using this which has been probably about a month now my skin has been so amazing. And the full-size jar actually last a while And probably should’ve lasted me longer but I love how it feels so much on my skin I put this on like three times a day I’m not even gonna lie and I only do it because it feels so good and refreshing. Anyways I definitely recommend this. Clinique never lets me down

is is a great oil free product to carry whilst travelling, it has multiple uses and is designed for every skin type. It’s a gel cream hybrid that provides instant hydration that lasts, it has that instant gratification as it really soaks into the skin and gives the skin a moisture boost. I really love that it can be used in different ways, you can apply it over make-up for on-the-go top ups, you can use it mixed with foundation or as a mask, and you can work it into your cuticles and other dry areas. A great, multi-tasking product to carry around with you.

I received this as my 100 point sample from Sephora, I've used it about 10 times so far and I really like it. My skin is a little sensitive and acne prone. This worked great, the consistency is light and almost gel like - but its not gel. (I don't care for gel moisturizers, they feel sticky on me.) This is perfect under make up or sunscreen because it's not greasy at all! It absorbs fast and moisturizes really well. This is definitely a product I would love to use on a regular basis for my combination skin. Also it doesn't have a smell and I appreciate that!

I love love love this moisturizer. I first tried it when Ulta gave me a sample bottle of it when I purchased something online. Anyways, it was such a small bottle that I finished it pretty quick. So I was on the hunt to buy a fuller sized bottle of it. I can't even begin to explain how many different stores I went to looking for this specific one from Clinique because this line also has a 72 hour one which most stores sold, and I don't like that one (even though it's from the same line). But I like the moisture surge extended relief one because my skin got really bad during the winter and was super dry and kept cracking. And this moisturizer really helped with that and really absorbed nicely into my skin. I love the gel texture of it because it feels and looks light, but it really keeps my face feeling moisturized all day. It's probably my second best moisturizer next to belif aqua bomb. But everyone needs to try this out because it really does work for me.

I have dry, sometimes flaky skin in the morning but end up being oily by the end of the day. I am looking for a moisturizer that will help my dry skin for makeup application in the morning that won't leave a greasy dew. Will this product do the job?
