Youth Surge Age Decelerating Moisturizer Dry/Combination Skin Review

A Surge Toward Younger-Looking Skin, or Just Another Greasy Sunscreen?

If you’re looking for a moisturizer to make your dull, aging skin look younger, brighter and plumper, then Clinique claims to have to product for you.

Their Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer for Dry/Combination Skin is available both online and in department stores and claims to use the latest technology to restore a youthful vibrance to your skin. Can it really?

As usual, we’ll take a look at what Clinique claims that their product can do, then compare that with the actual ingredients and what users are saying about it. Then we’ll decide if we’re going to “surge” to the store, or just keep looking!

What Do They Claim?

Clinique claims that this moisturizer uses the latest sirtuin technology to incorporate youth restoring agents that give you younger looking skin that’s full of collagen and elastin.

That’s pretty much all that they have to say, but that’s plenty. Let’s take a look and see if the product has the ingredients to back up the claims.

What’s In it?

Sure enough, the product has three different types of sunscreen in it: octinoxate, octisalate and titanium dioxide. It contains sirtuin, which is a protein that regulates certain biological functions and pathways. One of the things that they do is control cell reproduction.

The product also has propylene glycol, so if you’re allergic to that, you should probably stay away from this cream. If you’d like more options, check out our article, The Top 4 Wrinkle Fighting Moisturizers for Combination Skin.

Let’s take a look at what users have to say about it to see if we can get a little better grasp on how it works.

What Are Users Saying?

Users with combination skin seem to really love Clinique’s Age Decelerating Moisturizer for Dry and Combination Skin but people with really dry skin report that it doesn’t have enough moisture to get them through the day.

Those who like it say that it’s non-greasy, doesn’t sting the dry spots, and makes your face feel soft and hydrated. Most of these women are between 40-49 and many report diminished fine lines and wrinkles as well as skin tone improvement.

Final Word

If you’re looking for a product that sits well under makeup, provides moisture, help with fine lines and sun protection, and doesn’t sting your dry spots or break you out, then you’ll love this product.

If you’re looking for heavy-duty wrinkle fighting or something to cure your age spots, you may want to keep looking or use a hard-hitting night cream or serum along with this day cream.
