Clinique, one of Estee Lauder's many brands, is not my first brand of choice. I've tried numerous products that have caused me breakouts. That being said, one thing I love about Clinique is the scent. Their products are not scented but most of them have a very distinct Clinique scent. I was bought a jar of Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Cream/Gel as a gift.
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Cream/Gel has absolutely no scent whatsoever. It has a pink, thick, gel-like texture. It easily spreads and absorbs fairly quickly but leaves the skin a bit sticky for a few minutes. This product is designed for dry skin, yet, it is not the least bit greasy, and dries matte. Reapplication throughout the day can result in the product balling up if too much is used and it is not rubbed in well. My skin is left feeling very fresh and hydrated but not oily. I am surprised by how much I like this product.
This is a simple product, while it has many beneficial ingredients, it has a rather short ingredients list which may mean this is a good product for those who have very sensitive skin that reacts to everything. The ingredients include aloe, peptides, and vitamin C.
Available in a jar in two sizes, 1.7 or 2.5 ounces it retails for either $34.00 or $46.50 at most Clinique counters or from the Clinique website.
