Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

This overnight mask was my first ever Clinique product. In fact, if I’ve kept track of my products correctly, it may be the only one I’ve ever had.

I loved the idea of it being applied and left on all night to work while you are in the arms of Morpheus getting your beauty sleep, and I have to admit that the oh so prettyΒ ballerina pink tube really appealed to me and my girly nature.

I’ve definitely found this product to pack a powerful hydrating punch, but rarely use it on my entire face. Instead I use it on my forehead and/or the smile lines area around my mouth when my skin is feeling super dry. It is absorbed into the skin quite quickly, and doesn’t feel greasy to me at all. It was definitely a skin saver when my dermatologist prescribed an acne cream that was far too strong for that part of my face. The Clinique Moisture Surge played a huge part in getting my skin back to the way it was, or as close as I could hope for, as I applied it liberally throughout the day for a few days.

It works well with my sensitive skin, and doesn’t cause any bad reactions, and I love the faint, barely thereΒ scent it has.

I can’t really confirm or deny that it causes breakouts because my skin is so problematic, but I remember thinking that I had more pimples when I was using it every day. I had also started using other products at the same time, so it’s really hard, and unfair perhaps, to pinpoint this product as the cause.

Either way, I’ve found a way to make it work for me, although at that price doing anything other than that was not an option.

Would I repurchase? I can’t say for sure. I think I would definitely shop around first and see what’s out there, but I would absolutely consider this as one of the contenders.

I hope this review was helpful to all of you gorgeous readers. If you’ve used this product before, I would love to know your experiences with it. Or, if there is a a similar product you swear by, I would love to hear about it!

Wishing you all a delightful week!

Chuuu xoxo

  1. I haven’t tried the moisture surge. It looks intriguing. Although I do love their foundation. πŸ™‚

  2. I haven’t seen the tube packaging–I own Moisture Surge in a cute pink tub. The gel texture is attractive! Clinique is doing so many promotions at Macy’s these past few months that most of skin care products are now from Clinique! So would you say this product gets all on your pillow/bed when you use it overnight?

    • That’s a really good question, actually πŸ™‚

      I sleep on my front (which is terrible, I know) so I’m sure at least some of the products I put on my face every night must end up on my pillow regardless, but when I use this it’s not like I wake up and my pillow is all covered in cream.
      If you apply it some time before going to bed, rather than immediately before, it has time to sink in more too.
      If you tend to sleep on your back, then you are very lucky and I don’t think there would be a problem.

      I hope that helped! xxx

  3. I’ve only used one Clinique product and it was the moisture surge face cream and it was okay. I don’t think I would re-buy due to so-so results. Maybe I needed more information on it, like from a Clinique skin expert since I just picked this from my Sephora. My sister uses the 1-2-3 system and loves it. Good to know about this masque, though!! =)

  4. I didn’t know about this one. I switched to Clinique skincare at Christmas, I also used it 20 years ago in my teens. I liked it, but stopped using it after a scandal. Right now, I am loving their night cream “youth surge”, my skin feels lovely in the morning. But I don’t find the daycream in the same range as good.
