Clinique's Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator is an addictively refreshing gel-cream that provides an instant moisture boost - and is now enhanced to deliver almost twice as much hydration at the end of the day than it did before.

Clinique's Moisture Surge Hydrator with auto-replenishing technology and with activated aloe water actually helps skin create its own internal water source to continually rehydrate itself. Then locks in all that moisture for an endlessly plump, dewy, healthy-looking glow. Bursting with hyaluronic acid, nature's perfect moisture magnet, testing proves that it works non-stop for 72 hours-even after washing your face.

Key Benefits & Ingredients:
  • This product is allergy tested and 100% fragrance free.
  • Paraben free.
  • Non-acnegenic and oil-free, too.
  • For all Skin Types.

Multi-tasking formula can be used anytime skin needs a moisture boost, under or over makeup, or as a 5-minute mask.

    I LOVE this moisturizer! I have oily skin (acne prone skin as a teen) and this is not greasy and doesn't make my skin feel greasy. I have had no break outs using this either. It absorbs so well. I think I found my new moisturizer!

      Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator:

      I always got these for free in free gift packages from Clinique and never gave it a chance. I regret that! I have oily skin but my face is dry after washing it in the morning. Lotions always made my skin greasy from the get go. This stuff is moisturizing without being heavy or greasy. My skin feels plump, hydrated, and smooth after application. My new daily facial lotion! This might not be the best choice for someone with very dry skin, but this product is perfect for me.

      I have a mixture of oily skin, but with dry areas. I put this product on after I shower/go to bed, and when I wake up in the morning. My skin always feels so fresh after I apply this product. It helps with my dry spots without making my skin more oily. I bought the sample product at my Ulta store and I will for sure be re-ordering it online.

        Perfect product that literally saved all my combo and dry skin concerns. I get so worried each year when skin changes and relieved this over Christmas and love my skin.
        STRONGLY RECOMMEND this product and as someone with sensitive skin, this product took away all dryness and redness and lasts all day easily.
        Trust this product over any others.

          My skin gets very dry in the winter. I tried a travel size Moisture Surge Intense and thought it was ok. Still needed another moisturizer on top. I was told this was better than the Moisture Surge Intense. It's not at all. Feels good for a little bit, but then flakes off.

          I have combination skin and have noticed my skin becoming more dry this winter. Purchased this moisture surge after the great reviews and promise of moisture to my face. Within 20 minutes of putting it on my face was dry, dry skin on my nose began to appear and I was applying regular lotion to sooth it. Total bummer!

          Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator:

          I've had a good experience with the Moisture Surge line so decided to try this.
          It doesn't have the same chemical-y smell of the Intense moisturizer which I like. I use this right before bed and I wake up with plump looking, dewy-but-not-oily skin. I reapply after washing my face in the morning (right before applying sunscreen and foundation) and so far it's kept my skin looking fresh and moisturized throughout the day. I haven't noticed any excessive oiliness, which is great since my face has a tendency to become an oil slick if I use the wrong moisturizer.

            Comments about Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator:

            I have used Clinique products for years, and was nervous when the 72 hour version came out since moisture surge is great and a cult classic. This has the same pleasant, cooling gel-feel as the original, and instantly hydrates the skin. I have oily, acne-prone skin, but it gets dehydrated easily from acne products and living in frigid Wisconsin. The moisture surge 72 hour keeps my skin feeling soft and flake free, without breaking out. It absorbs easily, making a base for primer and foundation.
