new favourite: clinique moisturizer
Dry skin. This is something I have dealt with ever since I can remember. At times, it can be extremely frustrating, especially when it comes to the skin on my face. Certain foundations are a total no go for me. Even after exfoliating and moisturizing, I can end up with flaky looking skin or dry patches. And don't even get me started about the itchiness! So annoying. Does anybody else out there deal with dry skin? I suppose it is like any other skin type....we all have our issues to deal with!
Over the years, I have tried a number of different skin care products designed for dry skin. That includes facial cleansers, moisturizers, makeup, and more. The latest addition to my life? The Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. I have tried a few face products from Clinique in the past and have had largely good experiences with them. Now that the winter weather is here (and my skin was really unhappy) a heavy duty moisturizer has become an absolute must. That is where Clinique came to the rescue.
So, what are the claims? They claim that the cream-gel is a drink for the skin and that it hydrates for a full 24 hours. It "improves the appearance of fine lines, flakiness, and tightness, leaving skin looking and feeling happier and healthier." It all sounds a little too good to be true. Is it? My experience with the moisturizer has been great. This product really does a wonderful job of hydrating the skin - even in the midst of a cold Canadian winter. It is far superior to the other moisturizers I have tried in the past. Does it live up to all of those claims? No. How could it? However, it works well and has managed to combat my dry skin. And that is no easy feat!
Overall, I am quite happy with the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. It has definitely been saving my skin this season.
Have you tried this product? What was your experience like?
