Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream


Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30 Hydrating Colour Corrector 

Spring has sprung, and I wanted to venture out to find a foundation, a cream  that is very light to wear and wearable in the warmer climates.  In the summer time, my face, especially in the T-Zone area, is so shiny and I find that my make up tends to melt too, which I absolutely hate, it doesn't give off a great look at all.  So out of curiosity, I wanted to try this particular product called Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream.  I liked what is specified on the packaging, and it sounds appealing to try, it is an oil free, lightweight cream, with colour correction hydration that has UVA/UBA protection, that provides a more flawless look, that is suitable for all skin types.

It is 100% fragrance free and has a special optics in it, that helps correct dullness, sallowness and any other concerns you may have on your face, this formula will enhance your skins radiance.


Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream, comes in 7 different shades, ranging from Natural Fair to Deep for the dark skin tone.  In my opinion, the deep colour seen online displays a much deep and darker tone, but when you actually purchase it the colour is not not that deep.  The color reminds of the Rimmel London Match Perfection in Deep mocha which is the color I am currently using and loving it right now!

The texture of the cream is thick and creamy, I did expect it to be a bit runny, but you do have to really work with the texture to make it blend well into the skin.  I use a damp beauty blender to help the cream to blend well.

The coverage of this cream is medium coverage, that is great for normal to dry skin, but you can build this up in three different ways, dependent on how much coverage you want.

Lighter Coverage

Clinque advises that if you want a lighter coverage, when applying the CC Cream just apply spots of the cream to the areas that needs coverage.

Moderate Coverage

Again for a medium coverage you can just apply the product to your face or you can mix product with your moisturizer of choose.
Fuller Coverage
If you prefer a much fuller coverage, then you can just wear the cream under your foundation

When I use this cream, it is very lightweight on my face, the only snag I have is the sheer thickness of the cream, you do have to put work into making this cream spread over your face, it does colour correct my darkness or blemishes I have and dark circles under my eyes well, I do like how it gives you that radiant glow though! My skin was more even out using this cream and my skin was left feeling hydrated and soft.  It is a great little all one tube you won't need you concealer when using this product.
