Moisture Surge is the best moisturizer that I have found. When I dont use it I can tell. My skin is combination to oily and for this being and intense moisturizer it really takes to my skin well. When I wear it regularly I break out less. Also it makes my makeup look better. I have used other moisturizers that make my makeup slide off or clump up after hours of wear. This I must say is an impressive product.
This is the best moisturizer i've ever used for my combination skin. My t-zone is acne-prone, yet suffers from dryness and itchiness during winter. Moisture Surge helps relieve these problems without my skin breaking out. I also like the gel texture which feels comfortable upon application...it really absorbs into my skin without leaving a sticky feeling. A definite MUST-have from Clinique!
I didn't like this at all. I have very dry skin, and it didn't do anything for me. Moreover, i had to stop using it because it made me have an allergic reaction to it. A thumbs down from me. The turn around cream is much better.
I like using this as a nighttime moisturizer now that winter is approaching. On really "dry" days, I use it under my regular moisturizer as well. I like the scent, and I like how it's not sticky. However, I don't see how this can be used as a mask in a good way.
I've been using Moisture Surge for years and love it. I've tried other oil-free moisturizers, but always go back because it never breaks me out or causes irritation. I use it AM, under makeup and it smooths my skin and gets rid off any flakiness. At night, I use to prevent any dryness when I use my zit med. It's perfect for acne-prone skin that has some dryness. I don't think it would be enough moisture for drier skins, though. I have combo skin and it takes care my slightly dry areas while not causing shine in my oilier t-zone. ***UPDATE***: After switching to Moisture Surge EXTRA, my skins been alot happier. I'll only be buying the Extra one from now on. I strongly recommend the Extra formula over this one because it doesn't contain ginger which can sting, like this formula does.
This is my favorite winter moisturizer. I have very acne-prone skin, but it dries out in the winter. I need something to help with the flakies. This is awesome. I also use it around my nose when I have a cold (my husband does too) to help with my raw and sore nose.
