Back in early February, I did a long-overdue review for Clinique Moisture Surge. As you may or may not recall, that product ended up receiving a C+ for somewhat underwhelming performance given its high price. By the time that jar was empty, Clinique had released the Intense formulation of this product and It too was one of my little sister’s birthday gifts to me (How many are there? Even i’ve lost track!) Anyway. I’ve been using it for a over two months – so time for this to get reviewed as well!’
I always used to think I had oily skin. Only oily skin. Years of experience and dermatologist visits have taught me that I have rather dry skin. And all of my oil stripping cleansers, astringents and the like have only made it drier. My skin will then attempt to compensate for the dryness by producing excess oil. This is especially true on my forehead and t-zone. Thus I embarked upon a search for the perfect moisturizer to control both my dryness and the subsequent oiliness.
I tried various drugstore brands before venturing out into the world of Clinique. It was a natural place to start right? The brand is heavily known for their skincare. Both their website and word of mouth directed me to Moisture Surge. So off I went.
