Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Review

Smoother, Moister Skin, Really?


Since BB Creams hit the American and European scenes a couple of years ago, the push to find a multi-purpose day cream has been more like a mad rush to create junk products, but has Clinique finally gotten it right?

Though this is technically a CC cream, or color correcting cream, the concept may be better suited to non-porcelain skinned women. BB creams, or beauty balms, are traditionally made to perfect extremely fair complexions, not to blend well with peachy complexions.

Therefore, most women are disappointed in BB creams, though they are doing exactly what they are intended to do. But CC Creams are another matter – let’s take a look and see if Clinique’s Moisture Surge CC Cream is exactly what you need to even your skin tone and brighten your complexion.

What Does Clinique Claim?

The claims on this product are pretty straightforward, but impressive if they’re actually true. Two of the biggest problems with aging skin is uneven skin tone and lack of moisture. Sometimes it seems like no matter what we do, we can’t shake that ashy look, especially in the winter. Clinique claims that this product will fix that.

Specifically, Clinique’s CC cream instantly corrects uneven colors, gets rid of that gray cast and brightens sallowness. It also has SPF 30 so it protects you from sun damage. Finally, the product claims to be oil free and the hydration will help your skin look great tomorrow, too.

What’s In It?

The main ingredient besides tints and stabilizers is our favorite moisturizer, hyaluronic acid. There’s also sunscreen and a couple of refracting and smoothing agents that will make your skin look brighter and either set a good base for your foundation or cover nicely by itself. As promised, the product is free of parabens, fragrances and oils.

What Are Users Saying About It?

According to users, Clinique has done it again. I couldn’t find a single serious complaint about this product other than the moderately high price tag, but you need to remember that we’re talking about a Clinique product here.

Specifically, users like the fact that there are 6 shades, so it’s easy to match, and when you put it on, it looks natural. It’s hydrating and covers well enough to take the place of concealer and foundation both if you’d like. People with sensitive skin report that it doesn’t break them out and the packaging is nice.

Clinique’s CC Cream goes on easily and is similar in texture to a standard foundation. It doesn’t feel greasy and it absorbs well. In short, it does what it says that it does.

Perhaps most importantly, users with mature skin report that it doesn’t settle into wrinkles. How awesome is that? Finally!

Final Word

Rarely do I find a product that has nothing but positive reviews so when I do, I want to shout it from the rooftops. As a woman with mature, dry, sensitive skin, the best way that I can think of to close out this review is to say that I’m on my way to buy this CC cream. I’ll let you know how it goes!
