Clinique’s Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator Review

Today I am reviewing Clinique’s Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. This product launched last year and quickly gained popularity. I wanted to try this moisturizer and finally got my hands on it. 72 hours hydrating seems very tempting but unreal as well.  Let’s see how it really performs in the review.

My take on this product

This moisturizer comes in a tub packaging (they should provide spatula inside). The tub is transparent plastic with silver/steel color cap. The packaging looks luxurious. It comes in three sizes 15 ML, 30 ML and 50 ML

Image: Consistency

Clinique’s Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator is a gel-based moisturizer in pretty light pink color. Consistency is not very thick or too thin. On applying on the face it feels very lightweight, non-sticky, non-greasy. It feels like you are applying Aloe Vera gel on your face. It is fragrance-free which is great. I like how it makes my skin smooth and bouncy. However, I have very dry skin and it fails to moisture my dry patches in the winter season. Yes, I used this in the winter season and now using it in Summer. I feel it’s a very good moisturizer for summer. It hydrates skin without a sticky and greasy feeling. 72-hour claims seem to be correct if you don’t wash your face the next day 🙂 Overall this moisturizer performs well.

This is very expensive moisturizer however, you can get the sample from Clinique store before you buy the full-size product.

I will not repurchase this product because I want to try other moisturizers.
