Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Review

Hey everyone :)

I always have to restrain myself when it comes to my blog especially when it comes to buying new products or whatever as I instantly think 'ohhhhh I need to put this on my blog' or 'ohh I need to do a review of this immediately'.

One thing I told myself when I started my blog was that I'd be honest and that anything I put on it - I would have tried or tested. Leading onto the post - I was researching moisturisers for my face (as I tend to get really dry skin on my face, but as I have sensitive skin - it's a mission to find something that doesn't make my face blow up!

So I spent a good deal of time looking for a moisturiser that was specifically for dry skin but took into account people with sensitive skin. If you've followed my blog from the beginning you may recall one of my 'Boot's Haul' posts - where I bought two different types of moisturiser:

1. 'Simple' Kind to Skin Protecting Light Moisturiser SPF15
2. 'Simple' Kind to Skin Vital Vitamin Day Cream SPF15

Now 'Simple' are known for marketing their products towards people with sensitive skin and I will admit the product worked and my skin seemed good although I felt like the cream from both was rather heavy which not a big issue was annoying me slightly (you know me, never happy).

So I did some digging - checked out some YouTube reviews, some morning routine videos to see what people were putting on their faces and I came across Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (yeah long name).

The odd thing about this all is that this product is aimed at 'all skin types' and not just people with sensitive or dry skin. The product promises to keep your skin hydrated for a full 24 hours - I normally put it on in the morning when I'm getting ready for work but after watching a few morning/evening routine videos on YouTube some people tend to wear this one in the evening before bed so that your skin is being hydrated throughout the night.

The main thing I like about this product is that it's not a cream, it's more like a gel and I think this is one of the main reasons as to why it absorbs so quickly. The product isn't sticky and doesn't leave your hands sticky (which is a good plus in my books) as I don't want to have to wash my hands after lathering some face cream on at 4am in the morning while I'm trying to get ready.

The only downside to it (some may see it as a downside) is the cost - a small jar of 50ml will cost you £34.00 - which for some people is expensive. I know that when I bought it - that was the most I'd ever spent on any beauty product. I would also highly recommend try getting a sample of it (if you can) before spending the money on a larger tub just in case your skin doesn't agree with it.

Let me know in the comments if you have tried it or are going to try it?
