I usually find Clinique poducts to deliver on what they promise, but this product just doesn't perform as promised. Now that colder weather is here, my skin is dry and flaking. I loaded this on but within 10 minutes my skin was back to being dry and tight. It doesn't provide any long-term moisturization. Formula color and jar are pretty, but that doesn't compensate for the lack of hydration. Not worth the price. I'm so disappointed.

over all rating 3 because its okay
price 3 But i dont actually no i got mine in a kit
packaging 1 that is for the jar the mini tubes i like 5 for tubes

I liked this alot when i first tried it the texture is nice its a smooth gel but i broke out after a bit it may have been somthing else that caused me to break out since this is a gel but i stopped using it anyway since it happend after i started using this i then started using a face lotion from lush that is amazing and 10 times better then this stuff, didnt break meout the lush lotion also calms the red in my cheeks so i think there are better products out there

This moisturizer is very similar to their Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. It makes your skin feel refreshed and hydrated. The one thing I really disliked about this moisturizer was the tacky feel to my skin after it dried. This was something I would only use at night. I also did not like the packaging. I have stopped using it and gone back to the DDMG. I thought the Moisture Surge might be a nice change for winter but I was wrong. It's not a terrible product-it never cause any breakouts or irritations. My skin looked great in the morning but I prefer a lotion that I can use morning (under my sunscreen) and at night that soaks into my skin right away without any stickiness.

What I like about Clinique skin products is that they're simple, feel natural, and don't make you feel guilty about slathering on a billion products to get ready. This applies to their Thirst Relief lotion. It's hydrating, but light. I didn't notice a huge outer difference after applying it, but it definitely makes my face feel less irritable after a cold day.

I love this lotion. I really like that its more of a gel consistency than creamy, goes on super smooth, very easy to rub in. In the summer I keep it in the fridge, feels so good on sunburned/hot skin. I've also started using it thin out too-thick foundation, works great.

I have normal to dry skin,mostly normal with dry patches here and there. When i first put this on, i was surprised that it wasn't a thick cream like i thought it was, it's actually a VERY thin gel like consistency. I put this on some of my dry spots and waited for it to sink in (around 30 mins). Another 30 mins later, i looked into the mirror and the dry patches were even flakier and the entire area had broken out into bumps and lumps. I have never ever broken out from any cosmetic item before. Shocked that it was a product from clinique too! Good thing i only bought the tiny baby size or else i'd be majorly annoyed.

After reading the reviews here on MUA, i think that this product works better on oilier skin types because people with oilier skin dont need as much heavy moisturizing and the gel like consistency doesnt clog their pores. Anyways, i think its quite misleading because its called MOISTURE SURGE THIRST RELIEF. A product with that name shouldnt be for oily skin... anyways, i wont be using this again and hope the bumps will fade soon

I suffer from really dry, flakey skin especially in the winter and this product has saved it! I tend to use it over my regular moisturiser on the really dry patches as it is quite expensive. But it is a great product and my skin has been a lot less dry since i started using it.

Oil-free, and in this fun gel whipped texture :) Not too big a fan of having to use my fingers to grab some out of the jar, but the results are worth it.

I apply it after my sunscreen, and it gives my skin this velvety soft texture! Love it. Chic little glass container too.

I got this as a gift and I loved it so I repurchased it. The biggest size they offer is 50 USD which is a bit expensive for a moisturizer but it's the only one that works for me. It's a very light gel based moisturizer and very good for dry skin especially during the summer. I wish it came in a tube instead of a jar, though. Will repurchase.

this moisture surge from cliniqe really hydrates my skin well, and i have very dry skin during the winter time. i thought it did not work at first because i was using the clinique liquid facial soap with the moisture surge and together they did not work well for me. the facial soap really made my skin dry and when i tried to use the moisture surge, it didn't help that much. but now that i've switched to the cetaphil cleanser, the moisture surge works great! it really does moisturize my face! im not sure how this works with my acne though, i still get breakouts like normal. i got the sample size during their promotion but im not sure if i'd rebuy this- it was 52 dollars for the largest size. but for those that like to splurge on a moisturizer, get this!
