Most Helpful Positive



Loved this moisturizer! Had the tester size and loved it so much that I am repurchasing the full sized one right now. Been using it day and night since I bought it.

Most Helpful Criticism

Good but a little pricey


The product works well but it is a little expensive. There are other alternatives that are not as expensive and work just as well. I used this until it was all gone but I never repurchased it

  2. Smells like nail polish remover


    verified purchaser
    The product, which does provide adequate hydration (I wouldn't say superior) has an incredibly intense smell to it - like nail polish remover. It's hard to get past this when applying the moisturiser. I'll continue with it for now, but I'm definitely not impressed.
  3. Amazing


    I have tried many different moisturisers and this one is by far my favourite, goes on like silk and sits well under makeup. Had to stop using it while I was pregnant as it made my skin breakout but back using it straight after !
  4. Great Hydrating Moisturiser

    Bridget B

    This is a very good moisturiser, it hydrates the skin and creates a barrier to protect the skin. The only negative is that is smells strongly of chemicals, but the smell does not linger once applied.
  5. Super super hydrating


    Amazing!!! This stuff is incredible and I go through so many bottles of it. And will continue to keep using it.
  6. best moisturiser of all


    this beats any other moisturiser in my opinion!
  7. Fabulous


    I have dry skin. This product is non-greasy but still manages to add heaps of moisture to your skin. I'm using less product with really good results. Very happy with this product.
  8. Oil-Free Never felt so Luxe, or so good!


    This product is an amazing antidote to seriously dry skin that is also dehydrated. Ideally worn over the cult 3-Step Clinique Skin Care system, it ensures incredible suppleness, comfort and softness. I find that makeup sits much more smoothly... fine lines seem softer, and that my skin also holds itself up again aircon in summer, and heating in the colder months.

    Without it, my skin...

  10. all time favourite


    this is even better than the original. I Love the texture of this and it makes my skin so plump
  11. best moisturiser


    this is an amazing moisturiser I use all year round, my skin feels really soft and plump
  12. lovely moisturiser


    if you suffer from dry skin you have to try this, it makes your skin feel so hydrated and soft and It never broke me out which is rare for me
  13. 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 $$
  14. Orginal is better


    I find the orginal formula is better than this one, this doesn’t give the same softness and feels greasy on the skin
  15. Great everyday moisturiser


    This moisturiser is great for those of us with dry skin. I use it twice daily and it sits great under makeup. It doesn’t have the sticky texture like the moisture surge which is why I prefer it. Big fan of the moisturiser.
  16. Excellent! Super hydrating!


    I'm taking medication for my skin which has made it extremely dry. I started using Clinique products and the difference in my skin is incredible. I've been using their moisture surge range and I'm very impressed with the results. This moisturiser is super hydrating which helps in the winter. One of my favourite products.
  17. Fantastic product for when that EXTRA bit of moisture is needed


    I would use this product in conjunction with my usual moisturiser when I was experiencing dryness and dehydration (great in Winter especially when surrounded by air con). The gel consistency was light and goes on easily. It left my skin feeling very hydrated and supple, and was easy to apply makeup on. Also great to apply overnight as a kind of moisture mask.
  18. Love this face moisturiser!


    I've been using the Clinique Moisture Surge for over a year now. It has a gel like consistence as opposed to a cream. It has a really subtle, fresh scent. I'm prone to dry skin, especially in winter and this really helps. It leaves my skin soft and hydrated, without being greasy. Will continue to use.
  19. Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator


    The best moisturizer I've ever tried. Works as a thin base under make up. Is amazing to wear a thicker layer overnight. I had so many samples over the years so I bought full size and can't imagine living without it.
  20. Goes on nicely


    Low on fragrance and goes on quickly, my skin feels hydrated but I wouldn't say 72hrs. The gel is nice and I've enjoyed using it, but I think given the price, there may be better options.
  21. Very moisturising


    The intense moisture surge is thicker in consistency compared to the original. It is more of a cream than the original being more of a gel. This is very hydrating, being thicker is obviously feels a little bit heavier on the skin which is to be expected. It also doesn’t quite dry the same as the original, this leaves more of a moisturised tacky feeling rather than the smooth finish you get with th...

  22. favourite moisturiser


    I love the original but this one is even better. this makes my skin feel so soft and plump and is the best moisturiser to use over winter months.


    This product is very thick and hydrating.

    I do like to use in winter months or when my skin is feeling SUPER dry.

    I much prefer the 72 hour version though as I feel it is super hydrating and absorbs a lot quicker.
  24. Clinique have nailed it


    So glad I got to try this as a free sample! I've only used it twice but my skin felt super hydrated and moisturised after using this mask. I'll definitely purchase the full size once I've used up my other hydrating masks. Clinique's moisture range really is a cut above the rest - I have the whole range in my beauty cabinet
  25. Nice...


    This moisturiser is quite nice, but for the same price, and in the same range you can get the 72 hour version and it is so much nicer!
  26. Works after 1 use!!


    So glad I got to try this as a free sample! I've only used it twice but my skin felt super hydrated and moisturised after using this mask. I'll definitely purchase the full size once I've used up my other hydrating masks.
  27. Winter saver


    I've been living in London for the past 18 months and really noticed the difference between Australian winter skin and real winter skin. This product saved me! I went from slightly dry to I don't even know what to call it. This product leaves a nice hydrated slime almost but really brings the hydration back into your skin!
  28. For dry skin


    This is extremely hydrating. I would recommend for dryer skin and leave on before bed
  29. Too dense


    I tried this after finding dramatically different not quite moisturising enough. It applies easily, however it takes literally hours to be absorbed. Once absorbed my skin feels geat, but it is not worth 6 to 8 hours of shiny oily feeling skin. I am over 60 and have loved Clinique for years.
  30. Great for dry skin


    I’m in my 60s with very dry skin. I only need to apply once a day with my skin staying hydrated all day. I have noticed a great improvement in the look and feel of my skin.
  31. Amazing for a glowing, dewy look


    I use this moisturiser mainly in the winter and it always makes my combination skin look hydrated, dewy and plump!
  32. Turns dry skin around


    Flying must !!
    It turns patchy dry skin into smooth baby soft skin in a matter of days ! The whole range is amazing..
    It doesn't clog ur skin or make it oily in fact is amazing as a primer during winter.
  33. hydrating!!!


    this really helps to hydrate my normal/dry skin. Its lightweight but very nourishing and skin appears alot fresher after this is applied
  34. awesome!


    hands down the best winter moisturiser, I love this product!
  35. Love this stuff!


    I’ve been using this product for years! It’s a smooth, lightweight, gel consistency, feels nice on the face and leaves skin moisturised. Always feel like my skin looks fresh when I use this product. When I feel like my skin needs a little pick me up - I put a thicker layer of this on my face and let my skin drink it in. A little goes a long way!
  36. Hydrating


    My skin is normal to dry, very hydrating feels great on the skin, leaves me hydrated all day.
  37. Very intense!


    This provides a lot of hydration but the downside is that unlike the less intense version, it doesn't dry clean and matte. it has a sticky finish. but if you have really really dry skin, I think the finish is actually desirable, it makes you feel your skin is really drenched if you know what i mean. the finish is easily fixed with a make up primer though.
  38. Does not keep skin hydrated for long


    This product although feels great upon initial application, skin feels smooth and moisturised it does not keep your skin hydrated for very long! I do have quite dry skin and was disappointed, after a full day my skin feels just as dry as it was before the application. So I do not recommend for very dry skin. I also went through one of these containers so quickly even though the product is quite co...

  39. Extremely moisturising


    I have naturally dry skin, I have not found a moisturiser that works anywhere near as good as this. It keeps moisturising all day and my skin never feels dehydrated. Love it!!!!!
  40. Gives my skin a real moisture boost


    I received this in a sample and then was given as a gift (at my request haha!).
    It has been really lovely to use through the cold winter months and has helped my sometimes dry skin feel moisturised and refreshed.
    I usually use at night as I use an SPF moisturiser daily due to peels and serums that I use & found to be a lovely night cream to use. Would recommend, especially for dry sk...

  41. Love this moisturiser


    Such a perfect consistency for a moisturiser. This will last you so long as well - a little bit goes a long way! Used this everyday while travelling and surprised at how well hydrated my skin has been


    Literally a drink of water for your skin that lasts throughout the day and night! I’ve never found a moisturiser I’ve loved more than this! Absolute game changer


    If you have dry skin this is honestly all you need. I come home some days and I'm just so tired so I don't use any of my serums or gels, I just put a thick layer of this on my skin almost like a sleeping mask and it is just heaven.
  44. The best


    This is so moisturising and does not feel oily on my skin AT ALL.
    its amazing how soft and plumped my skin is after using this without feeling like I have a thick moisturiser sitting on top, by far the best moisturiser I've ever bought, and I also love the original version of this product too :)
  45. Super Hydrating - NOT Greasy


    This moisturiser was super effective in giving my VERY dry skin some much needed hydration; it didn't take long to see a smoother and more supple complexion - it was instant and is a new staple in my skin care regime!
  46. even better than the moisture surge


    I love both but this is definitely my favourite, it has such a nice texture and feels like it really seals in all the moisture when I use it :)
  47. Love this!!


    Keeps my skin hydrated and plump, super moisturising and no irritation for me. :)
  48. Great


    I love the whole Moisture Surge line. You wouldn't think a moisturiser could be this hydrating but still be oil-free, but this certainly is. I tend to use Moisture Surge for normal skin on a daily basis, but keep this in reserve for emergencies!
  49. Bit overhyped


    I am a normal to drier skin type, and love feeling really hydrated. I thought id give this a try but I wasn't a fan. After using Dermalogica's skin smoothing cream, I thought a gel might get even deeper. It made my skin sting quite a lot and I didn't feel long lasting hydration. But our skins are all so different, so if you love a gel/water based moisturiser maybe find out for yourself.
  50. Heaven in a jar.


    This is the best moisturiser ever.
    I used this for over a year and it not only hydrated my skin it plumped my entire face ! my skin went from being dry and dull to babylike. I have since switched to La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 but this is still In my drawer as my backup moisturiser and I would definitely recommend this to anyone with dry skin. I also love the texture of this, its like ...

    I’ve always had oily skin and I recently found out that it was probably because I was stripping my skin so much trying to avoid the oil!
    So I started using the Moisture Surge line and and it’s absolutely plumped up my skin, smoothed everything out and now my skin doesn’t produce half as much oil as it used to.
    Clinique saved my face!!!
  52. Game changer!


    This is the best moisturiser I’ve ever used! I got a sample and the consistency of it blew my mind so I bought it myself and it has completely changed my skin, especially moving into winter! I was using some expensive brand name stuff too but was finding sitting in my office all day my skin would dry and crack foundation. Now I have the perfect base all day and my skin just feels better. Love love...

  53. Love, love, love this product!


    This is my most favourite moisturiser ever! I have dry, sometimes sensitive skin but this makes my skin feel amazing. My face is soft and my skin looks brighter, clearer and more even toned after putting it on. Make up goes on beautifully over it. You only need a small amount and because of the light texture it spreads really easily. A little on the pricier side compared to what I would normally s...

  54. Surprised!


    I received this as a sample with an adore purchase. I never normally use any moisturiser that claims "moisture surge" as my acne/oil prone skin is likely to have a freak out. However I needed something little richer due to a week of AHAs use and I applied this. To my suprise it was so lightweight yet hydrating and the texture was like a sorbet. I will definitely be purchasing this in the future!
  55. Overall Winner


    I have used most of the clinique facial products and this one is just as good. A little goes a long way. It does leave the skin feeling fresh and not greasy. I have found that it has a chemical smell to it which is why I am not quite giving it 5 stars.
