There are iconic skincare products and then there is Clinique’s new Moisture Surge™ hydrator… The pastel pink jar is a decades old favourite that has stood the test of time, delivering impressive results thanks to its innovative gel formula. It’s a formula that appeals to everyone – refreshingly lightweight yet with the moisturisation powers of a rich cream, it instantly melts into skin, providing a dewy glow without the stickiness.
In 2018, Clinique upped the ante on the formula, boosting its hydration properties to deliver 72 hours of continuous moisture, and today the brand has gone further still. The latest iteration of Moisture Surge™ is further enhanced to provide even longer lasting non-stop auto-replenishing hydration, ten layers deep and even after washing your face.
Scroll down for everything you need to know about the new Clinique Moisture Surge™ hydrator.
It contains hyaluronic acid
The formula is packed with hero ingredients like glycerin, green tea leaf extract, aloe vera, and caffeine, but hyaluronic acid (aka sodium hyaluronate) was a standout for us. It’s a powerfully hydrating ingredient that can benefit all skin types, especially those that are dry or dehydrated.
It has approved claims
Clinique enlisted 110 women to try the new moisturiser ahead of launch and the results are seriously impressive. 92% of the women said their skin felt deeply hydrated and 86% of the women said their skin looked glowing.
It helps skin to retain water
Some moisturisers do just that, they moisturise. But Moisture Surge™ goes a step further and as well as helping to draw moisture into the skin, it also helps skin to retain that moisture. This means that skin is better hydrated both immediately and in the long-term.
It's for all skin types
There’s no such thing as too much moisture! No matter what your skin type or concern, your skin can always benefit from being hydrated because hydrated skin is healthier skin. The new Moisture Surge™ hydrator is suitable for skin types ranging from oily to dry and everything inbetween.
It helps to improve collagen density
Collagen is a protein which serves as one of the main building blocks of our skin. It’s responsible for giving skin a plump, youthful look but as our bodies start to produce less collagen over time, skin can appear loose and sagging. Thanks to its skin-plumping formula, Moisture Surge™ helps to improve collagen density to help prevent this from happening.
It's in more sustainable packaging
The three larger sizes of the new hydrator are now packaged in recyclable glass jars and the smallest size is made with a minimum of 40% post-consumer recycled plastic. To recycle, simply remove the cap, rinse the jar, and add to your recycling bin.
It helps to balance skin's microbiome
The skin microbiome is the term used to describe the millions of friendly bacteria that live on the surface of our skin, helping to keep out harmful bacteria and maintain moisture balance. The new Moisture Surge™ formula contains Aloe Vera Bio-Ferment Technology, which helps to support the skin’s microbiome in maintaining healthy skin.
Not just your average moisturiser, the new Moisture Surge™ formula is a true multitasker which can be used morning and night, and under or over makeup – it’s perfect for giving dull skin a midday boost). Plus, when applied in a thick layer it makes for a great five-minute moisture mask.
