I’ve really been re-interested in the Clinique skincare line lately. As a young girl, I remember Clinique being the first ‘high-end’ skincare brand I ever dabbled in — that cult classic yellow lotion everyone knows, Dramatically Different lotion, was the first product I coveted (probably from a bonus time offer my mom had scored).
Anyway, in terms of skincare, I’ve been enjoying a handful of products over the last year from Clinique: the Mild Clarifying Lotion; the Even Better Essence Lotion; and the City Block SPF 25 lotion. I’ve also tried and loved their Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief — the lotion form of this spray!
Having tried a small sample size of their Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief cream and loving how it instantly took care of any dry patches on my face, I wanted to try another bit from that range so I bought the Moisture Surge Face Spray:
On the Sephora website:
What it is:
An oil-free face spray that rapidly replenishes skin’s moisture level, restoring balance, softening, and soothing.
What it is formulated to do:
Bursting with moisture and active aloe, this must-have oil-free face spray softens and soothes the skin while hydrating and restoring balance. The perfect size to use on the go for showers of thirsty skin relief, this spray rapidly refreshes and rejuvenates the skin.
First off, I love that this is oil-free and alcohol free.
I’ve been using this for about two weeks now. Sometimes I’ll spray it on after my toner to add some extra hydration or I’ll spray it in replacement of my toner. About 3 spritzes all over my face and a bit of fanning action with both my hands, allows this to absorb and dry quickly into my skin. Skin feels plumped, soft and refreshed.
But what I’ve really been loving this spray for is for spraying all over my face after applying makeup. I can’t attest that this actually sets my makeup or makes it last longer throughout the day, but it definitely takes away any ‘cakeiness’ if I’ve over-powdered my face. It settles my makeup and with 2-3 spritzes it seems to make everything look a bit more natural.
I’m very excited to have added this to my skincare/makeup arsenal — super excited to see how this performs once autumn/winter months come around when my skin tends to get drier. I am 100% certain that this spray will be awesome for hydrating my skin. And to boot, it’ll be so easy to incorporate this into my routine because it’s a spray — 2 seconds, 2-3 spritzes and done!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone (guys and gals) who wants some extra hydration without the fuss of an extra lotion or cream on your dressing table. And if you want a spray for over your makeup, on those days you might go overboard, this is a great one to have nearby.
I give the Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray Thirsty Skin Relief: a STANDING OVATION
