Ever since I fell in love with the Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2, I’ve been dying to try more from the Clinique skincare range. Seeing as my skin is both dry and dehydrated, I figured that the Clinique All About Moisture Set would be the perfect place to start. The Clinique All About Moisture Set is £54 from Cosme-De, and it contains three products inside all of which are from their Moisture Surge range.
The set includes; Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Moisturiser 75ml worth £51, Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray Thirsty Skin Relief 30ml worth £5.28 and the Clinique All About Eyes Serum 15ml worth £24. The three products together are worth £80.28 so its price of £54 is very good value, and Cosme-De offer free international shipping on every order too, and the shipping is always impressively fast considering they’re based in Hong Kong.
Next up in the Clinique All About Moisture Set – The Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Moisturiser is one of Clinique’s top selling products and is described as being a light, comfortable gel-cream which plumps the skin for 24 hours, whilst washing away fine lines, flakiness and tightness.
Not only can this cream be used as your daily moisturiser, it can also be used over makeup for a midday boost by tapping it carefully over your makeup, and it can also be used as a hydrating mask by adding a generous amount and massaging it into the skin, leaving it for five minutes and then removing excess product with a tissue.
The moisturiser has a thick gel consistency, which is a pastel pink in colour. The gel feel so incredibly soothing on the skin, and it absorbs almost immediately into the skin. Even though the consistency is quite thick, it is very lightweight which I didn’t expect.. I thought it would be a lot richer than it is thanks to its name, but it’s not rich at all so I think it would suit all skin types.
I have really been loving using this moisturiser during this super hot weather as it’s so light, and cooling on the skin and it doesn’t leave me feeling greasy or shiny, and my makeup sits so nicely when I use this as my base. I think it’s a lovely moisturiser, but I would need to use something a little richer in the Winter months as it’s not intensive enough for my dehydrated skin, but it’s perfect for Summer.
The Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray Thirsty Skin Relief is a product I’ve been wanting to try for some time now as I love using facial mists, especially in this stifling heat we’ve been experiencing lately. The spray is said to be bursting with active aloe and moisture but not one drop of oil, and claims to replenish the skin’s moisture levels, restores balance and softens and soothes the skin.
The spray can be used over your moisturiser, or it can be used under or over your makeup for a boost of hydration whenever you need it. I love using facial sprays, especially during the Summer as they’re amazing for cooling the skin, and I like to use them over my finished makeup to prevent my powder from looking cakey, however I never find that they impart any moisture.
The Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray Thirsty Skin Relief is amazing, and the first facial spray that I’ve ever tried that actually moisturises my skin. Firstly the spray pump on the bottle is fantastic, as it mists the perfect fine mist all over the face without leaving your face soaked like the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. It has a very subtle herbal scent, but it’s extremely subtle and pleasant too.
Whenever I spritz this spray on my face, it leaves my skin feeling as if I’ve just applied a moisturiser.. it genuinely does hydrate my skin, and I’m wowed everytime I use it. I have bought the full size since trying this miniature in this set, as I love it so much and I honestly cannot recommend it enough, if you’re looking for a facial spray which will actually benefit your skin.
The last product in the Clinique All About Moisture Set is the Clinique All About Eyes Serum which is packaged within a rollerball pen which is my favourite way to apply an eye cream or eye gel, as the rollerball is extremely cooling and soothing, especially when my eyes are particularly puffy (hello hayfever).
Described as an instantly cooling eye serum which refreshes and hydrates puffy eyes and dark circles on contact, whilst brightening the eye area immediately. The serum contains caffeine, antioxidants and soothing botanicals and is completely oil free and non-irritating.
I really like the rollerball on this serum, as it dispenses the perfect amount of serum as you roll it around the contours of your eye and you don’t even have to massage the serum in as the rollerball does it all for you, so it’s a good addition to the Clinique All About Moisture Set.
Rollerball eye gels and serums are my absolute favourite during the Summer, especially when I’m suffering from awful hayfever as my eyes are always so puffy in the mornings so they really help to de-puff and refresh my eyes before I apply my eye makeup. I can’t honestly say I’ve seen a brightening effect with this serum, but it does definitely cool, refresh and de-puff the eyes which is exactly what I’m looking for when my hayfever is bad.
I use a brightening eye cream in the evenings anyway; the Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream, so I’m not disappointed that this serum doesn’t offer any brightening benefits. It’s such a nice, lightweight serum and it doesn’t cause any creasing issues with my under-eye concealer, or eyeshadow either which I love.
