Clinique is trusted brand for skincare and it’s been popular for almost a decade but the recent new product of moisture surge which Moisture Surge™ Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate ingredients contained caffeine that will smooth the skin but make it dehydrated and there is some issues that caffeine will give side effect with the blood vessel. However, minimum usage of caffeine in skincare can reduce the blood vessel popping out in your skin. Clinique is under the most famous beauty brand in the world Estee Lauder.
Lush cream-gel [Dupes: Belif Aqua Bomb – prices may vary between the size] penetrates skin, enhancing natural hyaluronic acid—nature’s perfect moisture magnet. For 24 satisfying hours, skin is plumped, dewy, glowing—from the inside out. Oil-free. Fragrance Free
The gel probably definitive solution for very dry skin, however for me, this gel will not be a good use or solving that problem, unless you support it with a hyaluronic acid or oil serum that could make the moisturizer stay intact up till next morning. Some say that, the product dupes is Etude collagen cream, I may disagree with that because the result is quite big different and Etude Collagen cream contained fragrance while Clinique Moisture surge using skin friendly ingredients. Having to say that it’s dupes for each others, it just mean that Moisture Surge is as bad as Collagen cream. Since, fragrance will cause irritation to the skin. I won’t be trashing a good product like this by making bad products as a dupes.
