Question
how does it compare to clinique's moisture surge?

answer 1
Clinique's product is much more liquid, and for me that's its downside. The Sephora one is richer, but without being too heavy on the skin. Also, as far as I can remember, Clinique's product is fragrance-free, and this one isn't (smells great!).

I personally like this better than Clinique's moisture surge. I think Sephora's is more velvety while I found Clinique's to be a little greasy.

I like this product sooo much better than the Clinique Moisture Surge. This product is very moisturizing but not heavy and I always found the Clinique moisture surge to not be moisturizing enough and it left a weird texture on my skin. I would give this one a shot.

What is the difference between this moisturizer and the Instant moisturizer?
I notice this is new and I use the instant moisturizer by Sephora and I love it, I was just wondering the difference between the two, because I do have a dry skin type.

I've switched to this one for the dry winter weather. It's more moisturizing than the original, but not sticky or heavy. I'll probably switch back to the original in the spring.

I also use the original and love it. I bought this one and ended up returning it. It's much more moisturizing, but left my skin greasy feeling and clogged my pores. I also have oily skin, so it may be a better fit for you.

I believe one product has either shea butter or more shea. Either way, get samples for you to determine which is a better choice for your skin. This way, you cannot go wrong.

I also have combination skin. I haven't noticed where this stuff makes my skin breakout. I like it. The pink bottle (without the SPF) is light and airy. However, the Purple bottle with the Sunscreen in it, did make my face break out even though I wash my face daily.

This moisturizer may be too a little too heavy for combination skin. We recommend trying Sephora Collection's Acne-Fighting Mattifying Moisturizer because it will help control oilier areas on your face and help treat minor breakouts>http://bit.ly/1k9cTnJ.

There's no SPF in this product. I use this one at night and they this PLUS the Sephora age defy moisture cream with SPF 15 layered over for day time. My BB cream also has SPF in it, so I figure I'm covered that way. You might not need both creams, but my skin can be fairly dry and I find that it stays more balanced when I layer the 2 Sephora moisturizers together!
