Clinique Moisture Surge Intense!

Good afternoon hope everyone is well, I'd firstly like to say thank you to all of my new followers I can't believe I this many already and I love reading all of your comments and checking out other blogs.

So today's post is about Clinique's Moisture surge instense face cream. My Mum bought me this as one of my birthday presents because my skin was going through hell around February time and was just so flakey and dry. I do have eczema on my hands and in the bends of my body like inner elbows and behind my knees, but I have never had such dry skin on face! It was literally driving me mad I didn't want to go out of the house and my forehead, cheeks and just above my lip went through stages of sore, dry and red. I felt it was embarassing and I couldn't cover it up with makeup as it dried into the dry skin and just looked patchy. After trying all the perscribed aqueous creams and E45 creams I found that nothing worked. But from the first day I started using this cream I found that my face was instantly hydrated and the dry patches were going away.


This cream is for very dry to dry combination skin although you can get one that is just moisture surge and not intense, which would suit normal skin. But this cream is actually a saviour for me. It is expensive at £30 but it is so worth the money. Clinique describe it as 'a rich cream-gel which rehydrates in a flash for a full 24 hours. Daily use helps fortify and repair skins moisture barrier. Oil-free formula with aloe soothes, smooths, plumps up dry fine lines'.

It is a creamy-gel texture and a little bit goes a long way. When my skin was very dry I used it every day but now I only have to use it once or twice a week. From the picture you can see how much I have left and I have had it since February which is pretty good going. Obviously if you don't have dry skin problems like me I wouldn't recommend you use this but all of the clinique products are so good. But if you do have dry skin patches or that tight dry skin feeling this is the cream for you. It works better than any cream I have ever had prescribed for me. The packaging is also lovely with very simple but classy glass container with an easy screw top lid.

Sorry this is such a long post but I really do feel strongly about this product. I got this from Debenhams and because it was bonus time my Mum also got a little make up bag with mini clinique products which is really good. You can buy this cream from here although I do recommend going to the clinique stand in Debenhams/ Boots/House of Fraser because the consultants are really good at assessing your skin and finding you the best products.

I would also like to thank Amy at All the little things for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you so much for this it's so great to be given two awards in one week! But as I have just done an award I am just going to post this on my blog and anyone who I nominated for the Versatile Blog Award can also have this award too.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will hopefully post next week. Although I may be a little rushed off my feet returning back to uni and doing an assignment. I will still try squeeze a good post in.
