While you can get away with makeup free days, there’s no such thing as moisturiser-free ones. Moisturising should be an essential part of your daily skincare routine - get that right, and everything else falls into place when it comes to meeting your skin goals. But with so much out there on the market, how do you pick the right moisturiser for you?
Grounded in the latest science, Clinique skincare is safe, clean and effective, delivering maximum results every time – so you know your skin is in good hands.
Find out your skin type
When it comes to picking the right moisturiser, it starts by understanding your skin type. If you’re not sure what your skin type is, there’s a simple test you can do to figure it out. Skip moisturising in the morning – just as a one-off. Check if your skin feels oily, dry or a mixture of the two by mid-afternoon and you’ll know what your skin type is. Once you know that, picking the best Clinique moisturiser becomes even easier.
Consider your skin goals: does your skin need plumping or is it lacking radiance? Your moisturiser can help you tackle these goals one day at a time.
Which Clinique moisturiser is right for you?
From Clinique Moisture Surge to Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion, here’s an overview of some Clinique moisturisers that address different skincare concerns and skin types – so you can find your perfect match in no time.
Starting with the newest Clinique moisturiser that’s taking the world by storm, the Clinique Moisture Surge 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator contains an Aloe Bioferment + Hyaluronic Acid Complex and caffeine, a combination helps trigger the skin’s own rehydration system to look plump and visibly refreshed. The formula is light enough for even the oiliest of skins.
- Suitable for: All skin types.
- Makes Your Skin: Look glowing and plump
Another gem from the Clinique Moisture Surge range, Clinique Moisture Surge Intense soothes, repairs, and hydrates dry and very dry skin. The Cica (aka Tiger Grass) in its formula calms red, irritated skin while lipids, activated aloe water, and hyaluronic acid strengthen, repair, and balance your skin barrier.
- Suitable for: Dry and very dry skin
- Makes Your Skin: Feel hydrated and soothed
Also available for men: Clinique Mens Maximum Hydrator 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator
One of Clinique’s first moisturisers, the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ is a gamechanger for very dry to combination skin. The blend of barley, sunflower, and cucumber and natural humectants soften, smooth, and improve skin. Deeply hydrating, this Clinique moisturiser also restores your skin’s oil-water balance.
- Suitable for: Dry, very dry, and combination skin
- Makes Your Skin: Look supple and smooth
Contrary to what you may think, oily skin needs moisturising too. Oily skin gets dehydrated when the skin’s water content becomes too low or gets greasy when the oil content gets too high. The Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel is an oil-free face moisturiser with a lightweight formula that restores the water balance in your skin.
- Suitable for: Combination, oily, and very oily skin
- Makes Your Skin: Feel nourished and degreased
