Why I've Repurchased This Moisturiser 6 Times

I am always willing to try out a new product when it lands on my desk, or *accidentally* winds up in my shopping cart when I repurchase my shampoo. So it's pretty rare to find me sticking to the same skincare routine for longer than a couple of months at a time.

Personally, I like to keep my serums more active and my moisturiser as a hydrating barrier cream to seal in all of the serum ingredients - you know, nothing too fancy and unnecessary. Which brings me to the moisturiser I keep repurchasing over and over: Clinique's Moisture Surge Intense.


Tell Me More:

I know what you guys are thinking, but no, Clinique isn't a just a mum brand or a teen brand (a total misconception in my humble opinion). Take it from me, I've got hundreds of moisturisers to choose from, yet Moisture Surge Intense is the one I reach for time and time again.

As a makeup artist, the thing I love most about this moisturiser is that it works really well under makeup to prep the skin for foundation application.

  • It has a gel-like cream formula that absorbs quickly into the skin

  • Leaves the skin ultra hydrated, and can be used as a lightweight overnight mask

  • Protects against dryness caused by crazy weather changes and constant air conditioning

  • It's water-based to suit all skin types, yet feels emollient, nourishing & non-congesting

  • It contains ingredients like Caffeine, Hyaluronic Acid & Squalane to moisturise & revitalise

  • Leaves the skin feeling refreshed, plump & comforted (with no fragrance)


Is Moisture Surge or Moisture Surge Intense Right For Me?

If you've already tried the Clinique's classic best-selling Moisture Surge, you might be wondering what's different about the Intense formula.

Both variations of Moisture Surge will deliver loads of hydration to the deeper layers of your skin, target fine lines caused by dehydration, and rid your skin of that tight, uncomfortable feeling. Though, if you’re feeling the aftermath of the winter months, experiencing textured dryness, barrier damage and flakiness (or you just want that extra glow), the Moisture Surge Intense is your girl!


What Does Everyone Else Like About It?

Staple for years

I keep coming back to this moisturiser and have used it for over 6 years. It’s the only moisturiser that actually sinks in rather than sitting on top of my skin, and I don’t wake up the next morning feeling dry after using this. Lots of other moisturisers feel like they don’t actually do much and I keep having to layer applications, but one layer of this does the trick! Definitely worth the $$

I will buy this forever


This is hands down the best moisturiser I have ever used! I could not find anything that would completely hydrate my skin, until I came across this! It has been a life saver, and a staple in my everyday routine. I would recommend this to anyone! I have very sensitive skin, and I feel as if this has really benefited me in so many ways. And there is no over powering scent!

The best night cream I've ever used.


My skin gets desert dry in the wintertime and this is the only product that has been able to save it from cracking and redness. I've bought this product several times over and will be devastated if it's ever discontinued. The packaging is simple and easy to open. The product soaks in quickly and doesn't feel heavy or greasy or skin. A little goes a long way.
