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.

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)
