Moisture Surge Spray
I have been traveling quite a bit lately and was on a desperate look out for this Moisture Surge Spray by Clinique. I had used the Moisture Surge Cream years ago and remembered how fresh and moisturizing it was and also remembered it came in a spray. Unfortunately Sephora France doesn’t carry it anymore but luckily I found it at a local beauty store in Nice, France before leaving for South Africa. Alleluia. Available online here.
What I wanted: a moisturizer in a spray so I could moisturize my face without touching my skin. See, I am quite a germaphobe and there’s no way in hell I’m gonna touch my face during a long haul trip. Even when I wash my hands in public / plane bathrooms and use sanitizer, I simply don’t want the skin of my face to be contaminated. Yet it needs love and moisture, hence this fab Moisture Surge Spray.
What it is:
Moisture Surge Spray is a “thirsty skin relief” that is going to replenish the skin’s level of moisture.
What I think about it:
It does it’s job well, my skin is indeed moist and replenished when I use it and it helps feeling a little bit fresher during a long flight, which is quite an added bonus. Plus I’m happy with the ingredients and to my knowledge, there are no other equivalent products out there. So when you want a moisturizer in a spray, this is your guy.

How to use it:
$24.50 for 125ml, available here
Well yes there’s a problem, it only comes in a 125ml bottle and when you travel you can’t have liquid containers that are over 100ml. The solution: buy a smaller travel size container and fill it with it, but still, I’d rather have the original bottle to be 100ml… Food for thought Clinique 😉
