clinique moisture surge £29.00 for 100ml

ARE high brow products worth the hype? The Live Scene road tests Clinique’s moisture surge to find out.

What is it?
Clinique is a well known high-end beauty brand which offers skin care products and make up that are all allergy tested and 100% fragrance free. Another one of their selling points is that their products have been designed to address individual skin types and needs.

Its official website states that this product: “Protects skin from dehydration, plumping skin’s ability to hold in soothing, nourishing moisture.”

Why did you buy it?
It was free with a magazine. It is available from the Clinique website for £29.00 for 100ml. I reviewed a 30ml sample.

How do you use it?
The packaging states: “Use whenever, or wherever needed, under or over make up or as a 5 minute moisture mask.“ I used it daily as a moisturiser before I put on my BB cream, and before I went to bed. I tested this for one week in order to give a honest opinion.

I have to say that this is the first Clinique product I have ever used and it certainly won’t be my last! This moisturiser has made significant improvements to my skin (no word of a lie). It’s a lot softer and smoother, and I only have to use a pea sized amount to cover my whole face! The only downside that people could say is that it is very liquidy, which is probably why you only need to apply so little of it. For me personally, I quite like ‘thicker’ moisturisers like Simple’s Hydrating Moisturiser, but Clinique have won me over with this good value for money product. I would definitely pay £29.00 for the full version.

My rating (out of five):

Have you used this product before?

Note: Skincare is a subjective issue, what might work for my skin (which is a combination of oily and dry) might not work for you.


YOU may think that this make up is reserved for Barbie but according to Donna Karan and co, there’s no such thing as too much pink.

Models were covered in the colour of the season (sorry Pantone) at shows such as Giles and Dries Van Noten, and now you can re-create this look with the help of The Live Scene.

Stars such as Halle Berry swear by applying sunscreen (whatever the weather) to help keep their skin smooth and to prevent aging. So by applying Clinique’s CC cream with SPF 30 not only are you protecting your skin from the sun’s harsh rays, but it also has long lasting oil-free hydration. Goodbye tired looking skin, hello flawless face!

Now it’s time to dish out the pink make up! Start by sweeping Stargazer’s pressed powder eyeshadow over your lids. Keep building up the colour until you are satisfied –the brighter the better! Then take a small shadow brush and carefully line the bottom of your eyes.

Next, curl your lashes and apply True Gold’s pink glitter mascara – always remember to do your bottom lashes first before the top to prevent a make up meltdown! Complete your look with Barry M’s lip paint in shade 113.

Will you be pretty in pink this summer?
