This product was added to the Moisture Surge range, last year. It’s a hydrator that can be used in various ways and here’s how Clinique describe it:
More than just a hydrator – just like the rest of the Moisture Surge family – this multitasking formula can be used in a variety of ways:
Moisture Primer: Apply after your serum and before your moisturiser to lock-in all the other moisturisers applied on top.
Moisture Sealer: Apply as the final step in your treatment routine (before SPF) to effectively seal in everything you’ve applied.
Acts as a bond between skin and makeup in order to keep a fresh and dewy look during application.
Moisture-Eye-ser: This concentrate isn’t just for the face. Use it in the eye area to boost the hydration levels of your favourite eye cream.
This hydrator, just like the rest of the Moisture Surge range, focuses on delivering moisture to the skin. High moisturising properties of this product are guaranteed by the inclusion of glycerine, sucrose, hydroxyethyl urea, cholesterol, and hyaluronic acid in the formula. There’s also one type of ferment which can help improve skin’s overall condition, as ferments provide probiotics. Moreover, the formula includes algae extract, caffeine, and vitamin E; all are excellent antioxidants. The product is fragrance-free, but it contains dyes.
This gel is a great all-in-one product. You can use it on its own or as a serum, and whichever way you use it, your skin will feel well-hydrated. The product is light-weight, absorbs very quickly and provides a burst of moisture. I enjoy using this product a lot, I reach for it whenever I need extra moisture, or I just want to do a two-step routine. I don’t have much to say other than it’s simply amazing. This gel is not only hydrating, but it also improves the skin’s barrier and resiliency, as the formula includes great ingredients, and it’s filled with various plant extracts. This product is suitable for all skin types; it doesn’t clog pores or irritate.
I highly recommend this product to everyone looking for a good hydrating serum. It does what it says on the box. It is hydrating enough to be used on its own or as a part of a more complex routine – you can adapt it according to your needs. Suitable for all skin types and ages.
