Quench Thirsty Skin With Clinique’s New Moisture Surge Concentrate

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

Clinique’s iconic Moisture Surge range has been a go-to of mine for years when it comes to quenching dehydrated skin. The original gel cream is one of Sephora’s best-selling moisturizers and I’ve been obsessed with the hydrating face mist since it launched. Now, Clinique has introduced a potent serum to the family and it is amazing.

The new Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate ($39) is all about quick, intense hydration that can be added into any skincare routine. The formula falls somewhere between a serum and an essence, with a watery, gel-like texture that absorbs into the skin instantly for a boost of hydration.

The bottle has a convenient pump dispenser and when you look through the clear portion of the packaging, you can see the orange-tinted formula’s microcapsules floating around. Inside those tiny spheres (which help keep ingredients stable) are vitamins E and C for a dose of antioxidants. As the spheres break open upon application, the formula shifts from a lightweight gel to a water. The liquid portion also packs polymers that help lock in hydration.

The concentrate plumps up the complexion instantly and boosts skin’s moisture reservoir for a full 24 hours—using it on the regular will help to break the cycle of dehydration and environmental stress (and the signs of premature aging both of those can lead to).

You can use it like a traditional essence or serum (under your moisturizer), as a last-step to seal it all in, or around your eye area to give your eye cream a helping hand. It’s so lightweight, I like to smooth it onto the palms of my hands and press it onto my face throughout the day (a great post-flight ritual to replenish dehydrated skin when traveling).

All in all, this versatile product is a great thirst-quencher that can fit into any regimen. Clinique also launched a similar product for men, in case you’re on the hunt for a lightweight (but super-quenching) hydrator for your man, too.

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate retails for $39 and is available online at sephora.com.
