Questions & Answers for Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

Question
Is this oil-free?
In other words, will this make me break out if I have combination skin? Does it make your skin more oily?

Yes! This product is oil-free! I just love the cooling texture of it, and as many people have said, it hasn't contributed to my acne!! Get it! :)

I'm not sure if it's oil-free, but it hasn't made my skin oily. I've had really bad breakouts lately and this moisturizer hasn't made it worse at all- it actually seems to be helping my skin heal, especially with the stronger cleansers I've started using. I've been braver about applying it to the breakout-prone areas and haven't had any increase in acne from it. In the more oil-prone spots, there hasn't been an increase in oil with the product. I highly recommend it!

I have oily skin and this doesn't contribute to the oiliness at all. It rubs in quickly and isn't greasy in the least. In fact my skin has seemed less oily since I have been using this consistently morning and night. I've also tried many different Clinique foundations and found that the Super Balanced makeup really works at controlling the oil. Maybe it's using the moisturizer and foundation together that is the key -- whatever it is, I would recommend both of these products!

Looking for a moisturizer for winter?
I'm using Epiduo and a sulfur cleanser for my acne and last winter my skin got really dry I would have to stop using Epiduo and cleanser for a few days to get my skin back to normal for time to time. So this year I need to get a new moisturizer. I have combination skin that dries out easily. I live in Tennessee and the winters are very dry, so I need a really good moisturizer but one that won't clog my pores or make my skin oily. Do you think this is a good choice for me? If not, any other ideas?

personally this is the only moisturizer that saved my life. it's a gel, so it doesn't feel greasy. It's actually very cooling when you put it on your skin and feels very silky as it absorbs (it absorbs very quickly so you don't have to wait for it dry). I suggest testing some out, but it really does a great job. It's the only one I've used (and I've tried soo many) that hasn't clogged my pores but gave me an instant softness. My skin flakes during the winter, so this is my fix =)

I would not recommend this because I didn't find that it moisturized well at all. Maybe the actual cream one and not the cream gel. I have recently started using Origins Mega Mushroom soothing cream and love it so far. A little more expensive, but doesn't clog pores and cause breakouts and is really soothing for my sensitive skin. They sell it at Sephora too.

I would highly recommend this for winter skin. If you are only very dry in patches try putting this only on the dry areas. This product will not clog your pores. You might also want to try switching your cleanser in the winter if you find it is too harsh for everyday use. You could use your normal cleanser every other day and find a milder cleanser to use inberween uses.

How long does a jar typically last you?
Whether it be the 1.7 oz. jar or the 2.5 oz. version, how long does one container last if you were to use it at least once a day? Or however many times you use it in your daily routine.

Thank you!

I use mine every morning and night, and it lasts a good 12 months, easily. A little bit goes a long way, I take my pointed finger and just tap it in the jar, and whatever sticks to my finger is plenty for my face.

answer 2
I have been using mine twice a day for 1.5 months and am only halfway through the 1.7 oz jar! So it may last 3 months or even longer, depending on how conservative you are with the amount you use.

I feel like a small amount goes a long way since the gel consistency is easily spreadable.

For reference, I use a scoop about half the length of my pointer fingertip each time.

This product is truly perfect for all skin types. I have oily skin in the t zone, and normal everywhere else in the warmer months. In the winter my skin is EXTREMELY dry. I am also very breakout prone. I use this year round and in the winter when my skin is drier, I use it later even over makeup, though this hydrates so well I dont even need it. I really think this moisturizer is perfect for every one.

I have had the same problem, my skin would get dry, and if I used a non-oil moisturizer my skin would remain dry, but if I used a cream moisturizer my face would just break out. With this product it gives your skin plenty of moisture so it won't be dry even in the winter time, but also it is also oil-free so your skin won't breakout when you use it! It is the perfect product, and lasts a long time!

it is a gel formula that is very light, so if you're looking for a rich texture, this is not it. Stick to a cream. However, it doesn't mean this won't help moisturize your skin. If you go into sephora stores they will give you a sample of the product if you ask.

Maybe for you the
Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Collagen Booster 1 oz after wash 1st 5 ingredients are 2 types of Vitmain C, 2 hydrophilic properties(water loving) one of which has been used for mild abrasions and scratches. I use this after because it is water loving as well, but may not be strong enough for you. A good lotion is going to leave your skin slightly sticky versus smoothly sitting on top. Maybe Lancome BIENFAIT MULTI-VITAL SPF 30 LOTION - High Potency Daily Moisturizing Lotion. this sits slightly on top because of the dimethicone, a chiemcial used in many primers. hope this helps.

Mine never lasted more than 2 years so I don't have a clear answer for you but I don't recommend waiting too long to use it.

If you look on the back of the jar (bottom right hand corner), you will see a small image of an open jar with the number '24' and the letter 'm'. This means that the product's shelf life is for 24 months after it has been opened.

Since it is a gel/cream/liquid product and not a powdery product, YOU may receive free samples from a Sephora location which carries the product.

They can't package and sample dry products like blush/dry foundation/shadows, etc. I received a sample of this product, used the sample & loved it. Went back and bought the full product. It has lasted 10 months and is at the bottom now.

Hi auggiev. Samples are a great way to try new products & we include three free samples with every Sephora.com order. The sample selection is listed on our website and changes frequently, so check back often to see what we're offering. At this time we are unable to send custom samples from our warehouse.

Another great way to try new products is to visit your local Sephora store. At the store, a Cast Member can make a tester for you of any products that we carry. They can also answer questions for you and make recommendations for other products. To find a store near you, check out our store locator. Thanks!
