I have been using this moisture gel for almost two years now. A friend of mine who battles oily skin recommended I try it after discovering it at her place one day. My skin tends to border on oily to normal. Since using this moisture surge, my skin has become much more balanced. My skin is not oily nor dry but feels...well, like I said - balanced. It looks balanced. No blotchy skin around my mouth or nose. it's a change after using other harsh products that promised to moisture over the years. i use this after washing with Yes to Cucumbers Gentle Cleansing Gel, which is amazing. Using to two together has my very sensitive skin flawless. I rarely wake up with a blemish. Recently i ran out of this stuff and used a cheaper moisture gel I had found at a Marshall's. Since using that, my skin had developed some flesh colored bumps along my jawline near my mouth. It didn't matter what I used, the bumps would not go away. I finally was able to conjure up the cash to go out and buy another Clinique Moisture Surge and just like clockwork -- bumps are gone. Skin is back to being totally clear. I have a completely smooth and flawless face again. Next time, price or not, I'm running out to re-stock on this baby. MY HG MOISTURIZER.
This is my HG moisturizer. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with actually dry, dry skin (which makes the name extremely misleading, I know), but for people with oily or combination skin, or even those with normal skin during the summer, this is an AMAZING moisturizer. It's a gel, so it feels really smooth, cool and nice when you apply it to the skin, and leaves my skin feeling plump and soft. It's fragrance-free, and oil-free, so even my sister, who has really sensitive skin, steals this from me all the time to use. I actually can't use any other facial moisturizer anymore because this one just feels so great on the skin- everything else ends up feeling greasy, or heavy. This one just feels like I'm giving my face a drink of cold water, haha. It doesn't break me out at all, too. I've gone through who knows how many tubs of this. Which brings me to my one gripe- packaging. I wish this didn't come in a tub and came with a pump or in a tube. I like how the jar is clear, at least, since it lets me easily see how much product I have left, and the jar also lets me scrape out the last bits when I'm running out, but it's not very sanitary. I don't like dipping my fingers in it again and again, even though I always make sure my hands are clean before I touch it, but... you know, bacteria. Gross stuff. I hope they make a pump or tube or something, (and the price is pretty high, too, unfortunately) but otherwise, this is a great, great moisturizer, and I love it!
I was disappointed with this. It glides on silkily and feels lovely at first, but half an hour later my skin feels no more hydrated than before I applied it. I used it tonight when my skin was feeling especially dry and in need of 'thirst relief' but after a short time it felt as hot and tight as before. I may as well throw out the product and keep the sample jar for travel and put into it a moisturiser that actually works.
I've been using this for a few weeks and at first I was IN LOVE but now I'm breaking out like crazy on my jaw and forehead :( So sad. I wish this could have worked better for me :(
This is my go-to moisturiser in the warmer months, providing me with enough moisture but it doesn't break out my acne prone skin. It doesn't cut it in the winter as I would run through this stuff to prevent my skin flaking.
I don't know what I would do without this moisturizer! I came across it after having no success with a few drugstore brands. I was intrigued by its gel formula. I've got to say I am extremely pleased with the results! Skin feels really nice, I've used it for weeks alone at night, and under foundation during the day. Overall a reat product for keeping skin moisturized.
I got a sample of this along with the (surprise!) ddms. I like it, but not enough to buy the jar. I would rather have a tube or a pump haha but on days where my skin is flaky and dead I would exfoliate and then use this. My skin actually looks different the next morning haha
love this product especially because it's a gel. since i live in hawaii..sometimes the humidity would make my skin feel oily when i would use cream moisturizers...but not this with gel! under makeup..or even just by itself it makes my skin feel hydrated without feeling heavy and i haven't experienced any breakouts due to using this moisturizer (unlike some cream moisturizers i've used in the past). yeahh it comes off a bit pricey to some people but i definitely think it's worth every penny...and it lasts a good amount of time (i use it in the morning and at night). i'm currently on my third bottle and i will for sure be continuing to use this product until they stop making it *knock on wood* haha. :]
SUPER DUPER HYDRATING <3 It's also made up mostly of water which is great for my oily skin~ Has a nice and light scent to it and is also nice on the skin :) I always use this when my dramatically different moisturizing gel doesn't do the job~
This is one of the best moisturizers I have ever used. It sinks into the skin quickly and you really don't need a lot. I have oily skin but it also gets dry due to acne creams, but this gave me enough moisture without making my face more oily. I will definitely buy again
