If I’d have to describe my morning routine, it would first of all be snoozing for quite some time after my alarm went off, checking the first incoming emails in bed and pampering my skin with a wonderful cream: Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate.
As a make-up artist, I am my own best advertiser, so it’s extremely important to take good care of my skin and keep it well-hydrated. When my skin looks good, I simply feel better as well. I’ve been using the Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate for a while now, and it clearly makes a difference. My skin stays hydrated all day long and feels soft and smooth.
During the day, my skin tends to get oily and shiny, especially around the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin). That’s why I love this cream so much: it’s not an excessively thick and rich cream that makes my skin shiny, no, it has a gel-water base. This is also why it will immediately give you an invigorating, refreshing feeling first thing in the morning. Something that’s absolutely necessary to wake me up in the morning, because I’m not a morning person at all, hehe.
Another benefit of this Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate is that it’s 100% fragrance-free, which makes it suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones. Very practical, since our skin has different needs depending on the season and time of year. My skin tends to be dry more quickly in wintertime, for example, but since this gel-cream is so hydrating without making my skin look shiny, I can use it all year round.
When I don’t need to leave the house, I only apply a bit of this cream and skip the make-up. That way, I’m giving my skin some well-deserved rest, while the cream also gives my face an instant boost. Truly a wonderful feeling! When I work out of the house, I apply a little bit of this concentrate as well as an eye cream, some mascara and a touch of lipstick.
Whatever the needs or desires of your skin may be, Clinique always has a solutions: their products simply do what they promise.
