Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturiser review.

A while ago I got a free sample of Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturiser in a magazine. After trying it I was pretty impressed with it and decided to buy some, although it was a little pricey as with most of the Clinique range. I think it retails at around £23.00 however I got it for about £19.00 as my flatmate works in duty free at the airport! :-)

Although I got the same shade as the same I'd tried (no. 3), I found it to be a bit dark for my skin tone, although it's a bit of a better match when I'm wearing fake tan. So for this reason I don't tend to wear it during the day, which is mainly what I intended, as it is a tinted moisturiser and I wanted a lighter version of a foundation. Also, my skin has oily tendencies and I find that this tinted moisturiser makes my skin appear quite greasy, and if I do wear it on a night out I tend to still use foundation over the top, along with concealer and powder. I suppose it works well as an initial base but I definitely wouldn't be able to wear it alone. Perhaps it works better for people with dry/normal skin though.

My overall thoughts on this product are that it's a bit pricey for what it is and there are several others on the market for much less, for example the Garnier BB cream which I have previously reviewed. I do regret spending that much on it as I don't really use it often and I'm never particularly impressed with the results, particularly if I am only using it as a base for under the rest of my makeup.

Hope this review has been helpful! jess xo


  1. Great review! I also found this product to be a let down ;)

    P.s I like this font you're using!

  2. Ooh how interesting - I tried this from a little sample sachet too and liked it, was planning to get it but it doesn't sound too great now I've read this!x

  3. Yeah I wouldn't personally recommend it! I would advise the Garnier BB cream as it's pretty similar and less than half the price! x
