Clinique - Moisture Surge 72 Hour

About a year and a half ago I wrote about the Clinique Moisture Surge gel - and now they recently have upgraded their superpopular formula to a formula packed with hyaluronic acid and one that should keep you hydrated for 72 hours! 

Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

The new Moisture Surge texture hasn't changed much from the old texture. If you want to refresh your memory, you can read my previous post here. It still has the easy to apply lightweight gel texture that feels so soft. It gets absorbed really quickly and doesn't leave a noticeable film on the skin. I still absolutely love it. 

What's new is that the formula now contains activated aloe vera water and a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid - which acts like a fluid retainer for the skin and should keep your skin hydrated throughout the whole day and even more: for 72 hours. And all that even if you've washed your face.

Like always the product doesn't contain parabens or perfume and is tested for allergies. However it does contain silicons. Moisture Surge is suitable for all skin types, from dry to oily. 

Moisture Surge Supercharged Concentrate

This concentrate is a water-gel hydrator that quenches dehydrated skin with a 179% moisture boost, that keeps the skin hydrated 24 hours with 65%. 

When I first tried it out, I thought the formula would feel similar to the Moisture Surge Gel, but it's completely different! The formula feels a lot more sticky, so I would recommend topping it off with some of your regular moisturizer (I topped it off with a little bit of the gel above) to get rid of the stickiness. It does hydrate well and you can feel the difference immediately. It also comes in a pump bottle, which is really handy and more hygienic than a jar. I need around 2 to 2,5 pumps a time, it goes down a lot faster than the MS gel cream.

The little capsules you see in the gel are encapsulated antioxidants and vitamins. The formula further contains also hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water like the gel.

Clinique - Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator (€28,50 for 50ml)
Clinique - Moisture Surge Supercharged Concentrate (€28,50 for 48ml)

Hydration is key and these products hydrate really well. In feeling on the skin the formula didn't change (luckily, never change a winning team) but the formula itself got an upgraded version and we can only cheer for that. The products are also really veeery reasonably priced!

Have you ever tried anything from the Moisture Surge line?
