Where I got it: I ordered this on the Clinique.com website and shipped it to me using YouShop because they don’t ship internationally. Shopping on the US website is much cheaper than buying it at the counters here in New Zealand and they do much better gifts and offers pretty much all the time. This concentrate is USD$39, which is about NZD$55. These are RRP$99 here in New Zealand!
What I got: This is a 48ml bottle of the Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate. Supercharged water-gel hydrator instantly quenches dehydrated skin—and is so intensely hydrating, it boosts skin’s moisture reservoir for a full 24 hours. Liquid-Sphere™ Technology combines water-binding ingredients with encapsulated antioxidants to help break the cycle of dryness and environmental stress that can lead to premature ageing.
How I find it: This is the new serum in the Moisture Surge range and it comes in this clear plastic bottle with an airless pump. I love the sleek design and the signature pink colour that the Moisture Surge range is associated with. You can see the small cloudy white bits suspended in the pink gel, which melts and blend into the skin when applied. Designed to be used after toner, I use a full pump of this concentrate all over my face and follow with a moisturiser. You can use this day and night.
Overall: I absolutely love the packaging of this product and the lightweight gel texture. The formula hydrates the skin without the greasy, heavy weight feeling on the skin. I have combination oily skin and I love it! I would assume that people with all skin types would love it and people with oily skin could almost do without a moisturiser (but definitely sunscreen!). It has no fragrance as with all Clinique products. I find that all of the products in the Moisture Surge range works amazingly on my skin – I absolutely love the Intense version of the moisturiser (even with combination oily skin) as it hydrates, moisturises and has this amazing velvety texture on the skin. It is no greasy or sticky whatsoever!
