My new favourite moisturiser

Friday, 17 November 2017

I'm not one to spend a lot on skincare. In fact, I try to avoid the high end brands. Currently the only slightly pricier items I have in my skincare collection is the Pixi Cleansing Balm (£18), and the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (£15) which I asked for as a gift. Looking at these now, they're not the most expensive out there, but for a student on a budget, they're not your typical Garnier Cleansing Water that will cost you a fiver and last you a lifetime.


Enter the Clinique Moisture Surge. At £34 it really does pain me to say how much I love it. Back in October I attended a Norwich Beauty event at the city centre's Debenhams store, and in the hundreds of goodies I got to take away, a sample of this was in it. I can safely say, after a month or so of using up the sample, I knew I needed the full size product.

After using my trusted Cetaphil Moisturiser for years, this was a real switch up for my skin. It has a very light and watery consistency which at first I thought wouldn't do a lot, but actually acts as the perfect base for my make-up. Due to its light consistency, it soaks up quickly and provides the hydration I'm looking for. It is quite light, so I would imagine if you suffer from dry skin it might not be suited for you so well, but for my oilier skin, it's been great.

Despite the hefty price tag, a little does go a long way - the sample alone lasted a month and a half, after using it every day! Luckily for me I managed to bag this one with an offer so it didn't make such a dent in my bank balance. It's a big treat to myself, while I don't think I'll be able to afford another one once this runs out, I definitely think I'll be adding it to my Christmas list.

Whats your favourite moisturiser? High street ot high end?

  4. Oooh this sounds SO good! I always feel bad spending a lot of money on skincare but it really does make a difference I've found. I'd love to try this one out, but my favourite moisturiser right now is the L'Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water xx

  5. This sounds like such a dreamy moisturiser. I've never tried any skincare from Clinique but I usually hear really good things! I'm currently loving a moisturiser from Vichy which is kind of middle ground price, so its kinda the best of both worlds!

  15. Skin care is always the bottom of the list when deciding what to spend my money on each month, but I think I might have to invest in this. It sounds dreamy!

  16. I've only tried one product from Clinique, which is the cleansing balm, but I've heard so many great things about the brand in general. I need to check this one out!
