I bought this product hoping to find a good moisturizer for my oily skin, I tried this product to its fullest(finished the entire tube) and still had oily, shiny skin a couple of hours after wearing it.This was an expensive product to try!
In all fairness, I cannot fully rate this product on any anti-aging benefits. I wanted to love this product. It's afforadable, it provides the latest technology a moisturizer should have, and it was given to me to try, brand new and fresh. Full size jar. However, the first obstacle is the SMELL. All day my face smells like an old gym sock is on it. WHY Clinique? How did this pass through all the hands (and noses) of rigerous testing? This in itself makes it hard for me to conintue my assessment due to the fact I cannot put it on my face more than one day, every two months. It does apply nicely. Then it leaves a high shine; a wet look on my combination skin. I did get oily thoughout the day and had to blot, blot, blot.
I got a small jar for free as a gift with purchase, otherwise I would never buy this. It's a basic moisturizer, but left me feeling a tad greasy and also tends to pill/rub off my face. It feels as though my skin never really absorbs this lotion. Would not buy but will use up the rest of the lotion on my neck.
I have only been using this for a month about 4 days a week. So far, so good. It makes my skin very soft and I don't end up looking like a grease pit by the end of the day. I only gave it 4 lippies because I haven't worn it out in the sun yet (I live in Maine, winters are cold lol).
This moisturizer left my skin with both acne and dry spots. After a couple of days my face was so sore and red it hurt to touch it! I would not recommend this for anyone!
I used Cliniques Superdefense moisturizer for a couple of years (I have since switched to Exuviance which has done wonders for my skin). When I went to the Clinique counter to re-purchase Superdefense this summer they were sold out - and the SA said that since I was turning 30 I should switch to Youth Surge anyway. So I did and it was horrible! Two days later I left for a conference. We were pretty much locked up in a hotel in the countryside working all the time so I couldn't get a hold of a new moisturizer and just had to continue using it. The last days I ended up putting my hand cream on my face because it was unbearably sore! Purchased the Decleor Hydra Floral Flower Essence Moisturising Mask on my way home, slathering it on for days, which helped!
This product make my face ITCH SO MUCH! I can't use it and I'm not sure whats in it that is irritating my skin but its awful. My face and neck are really itchy, theres no visible rash or anything just this very annoying itch. I do have somewhat sensitive skin and allergies to certain things but Clinique is supposed to be good for that type of skin. I went about a week without using this and the itch went away and then I used it again for the past two nights and its back just as bad as it was the first time.
I wont use this and I would never buy it, its awful on my skin!
I got a jar of this for free. It is lightweight, and I have oily skin so it works well. It has made my skin look more radiant, even toned. I have the night cream as well. It is nourishing and my skin looks great when I wake up.
Is this the new Repairwear? In any case, no good for me. Rash. Never had such a reaction before... owee.
I got this as a free sample set. I have the one thats Dry/combo skin.
performance wise, It does absorb fairly quickly, matte and non greasy, but the smell gives me headaches. I cant stand the smell of this cream. Its not perfumy, its more like Plastic, or burning plastic.
if you can take the smell, give it a shot, but to me the smell is really awful..
I feel this product is very light weight. I have a very oily skin. I feel this is very fast absorbing and I'm able to put on my makeup without the annoying clumping.
