Hey guys!!! I’m finally back. Life got in the way for quite a while!!! I had to study to get back into college (which I succeeded in), then I had so much college work to do that I had very little time to do anything. Plus I got a boyfriend and he takes up a lot of my time. Anyway, I have a little break before I go on work experience so I have time to do some more blogging and hopefully vlogging!

On to the review!!!

This is the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief gel cream. It can be used as a moisturiser or as a face mask.

Texture: Thick gel formula

Smell: Unscented but has a light natural fragrance that is barely noticable

Price: Very expensive – currently €43.50 in Debenhams for 50ml.

Skin type: Any

My Opinion It works really well. When I first put it on my skin didn’t feel moisturised at all (it actually felt a little dry) but after about half an hour my skin was soft, smooth and felt really fresh. It took a few minutes to absorb so it shouldn’t be used if you’re in a hurry. I used it after a clay mask so my skin was rather dry when I applied it. I didn’t wash my face before bed and my skin still felt moisturised the following morning (and I had slept for about 10 hours so it was quite a while). Definitely long lasting. I would also like to add that I normally have an oily T-zone and even the next morning my skin was still matt! Also you only need a really small amount to cover the entire face so the tub should last quite a long time. It didn’t cause me any breakouts and didn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Recommended: Definitely if you can afford it. (I got it as a trial size when I bought a few other things from the company)

Final Thoughts: It’s not a product I would use on an everyday basis purely because it is so expensive. I would use this weekly as a moisture boost after a long week or a night out and your skin needs a pick me up. My skin looked and felt really healthy after using it. A really nice treat for your skin!!

Alternative Products: The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Mask – costs about €17. Not quite as good but a good alternative for a significantly cheaper price.
