I am starting a new set of posts on here which will share what I think about particular products. Although I am a bit embarrassed to admit it, I am quite the opinionated consumer, so rather than keep it to myself, I thought I would share with you :)
I am no expert on anything really, but hopefully you will find these little reviews interesting. I am not being sponsored by any brands to write these, but if ever that changes, I will let you know of course.
So for my first What I Thought About post I am reviewing Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief moisturiser.
I have just come to the end of this 50ml pot - it has lasted since 1 November and was used every day.
I loved this moisturiser. I bought it at Gatwick Airport for about £27 on a whim. I used to be really loyal to one brand (Clarins), but now I chop and change based on reviews. This was reviewed on a a few beauty blogs so I decided to give it a go. I am so pleased that I did.
The cream has a light, creamy jelly texture and is very lightly fragranced. It goes onto the skin like a dream. I have combination skin that is sometimes a little shiny and I was worried that this would be too greasy. In fact, it was absorbed into my skin almost immediately and just left me with supple, baby soft skin that was neither greasy or dry.
Compared to lots of moisturisers, this one is expensive, but it lasted well and my skin did feel great wearing it. I hate it when my skin feels dry - I think it really ages me. The blurb on the Clinique site says that this cream makes fine lines fade away but I can't say I noticed any difference. It also promises vibrant well-being - and here I do agree - my skin did look well with this cream.
I would definitely recommend this moisturiser if you have regular, problem-free skin, that just needs a good drink.
Please know that I was not paid in either product or cash for my opinions on this product.
