Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask.

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask – £28 *
Up until recently I thought moisture masks weren’t a necessary step for me, I don’t have dry skin and I never feel like my skin needs any sort of rich moisturising products. How wrong I was. The first mask I tried was Origins Drink Up overnight mask, now we all know I’m a big fan of Origins and gaahhhdamn I love the smell of this but it broke me out something special and I put it down to the product being too rich. Nevertheless, I few months later I give this Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask a whirl and I’m hooked.

If anyone has ever tried the original pot of Moisture Surge, you’ll know it’s quite a gel-like consistency and they’ve used this in the mask version too – it’s somewhere between a gel and a cream so it’s plenty hydrating without the rich formula. I usually use a moisture mask after I’ve used a detoxing (usually clay) mask and/or a peel, so my skin has been thoroughly purified and is ready for a big helping of moisture. This routine makes aallll the difference to my skin and my favourite thing about this mask is that you just apply it like a moisturiser (although I tend to apply it like a mask, leave and then rub in before sleep) and leave it overnight. Most moisture masks I’ve used have to be cleaned off before sleep which is a little too much work for old lazy bones over here.

For me, I noticed a difference after one use – despite my skin not being in any way dry. My skin felt incredibly smooth and a lot more plump and bright, too. I use this once a week (sometimes twice) and always after a peel mask or exfoliation, it’s not too heavy or scented so I never break out and my skin is looking a lot healthier for it. If you do have a combination or oily skin type, do give moisture masks a chance as it’s likely to make a difference.

What do you think of moisture masks?

    Sounds nice! I recently bought The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Moisture Mask and now I’m converted, they’re really good x

  • Kelli

    My skin is dehydrated pretty much all the time so I would probably love this! Will definitely check it out.

  • Michelle

    I’m not sure about this product, I’ve never really needed a super moisturising cream before! I am really interested in Clinique’s Even Better Dark Spot Corrector, though… something I’ve always wanted to try out!

    I’ve found this a few weeks ago and gave it a try because I love the Moisture Surge Gel of Clinique and I love it too (I got oily skin but in my opinion my spots are getting less since I’m using hydrating products)! 🙂

  • Sirens and Bells

    I’ve never used this mask before, however, I do get incredibly dry skin so I may give this a go! x

  • Gillian

    This mask sounds really great. I love moisturising masks and I love that you can just rub this one in, I too am lazy like that!

  • Chloe

    Really intrigued by these overnight masks – really want to try one! Price point doesn’t seem too sad either for a high end product.xx

  • Maria

    I really want to try this now. I usually hate moisturisers so maybe this is the solution. I love Clinique’s packaging, it looks like it would make your skin good just by looking at it! How do they do that?

  • Maddy Cane

    Looks really ice, I do actually have dry skin so this may help that! xxx

  • Emily

    I’ve never really considered an over night mask but I do love all the cliques products I have ever tried so I think this might be a good place for me to start.

  • Rebecca Lately

    This is actually the only moisture mask I’ve tried, and I like it! I’ve used the moisture surge moisturizer before, and it’s nice too. In fact, I keep it around for sunburns. If I ever get burned at the beach, I’ll slather on the moisturizer to keep from peeling. It works!

  • cardiac

    OMG I HAVE to buy this!

  • Millie

    I love the Clinique moisture surge moisturiser so this is something I will definitely be picking up! 🙂 ♥

  • Liz

    Moisture surge is my all time favourite evening moisteriser and this looks a great product too.
    Lots of love for the mousure surge range!

    I’ve just added this to my ‘to buy’ list as I had the same problem as you with Origins Drink Up Intensive but I love moisture masks and how they make my skin look and feel. Clinique’s a brand I’ve spent a lot of time/money on and have only recently stopped using all of their skincare products but I think this would be a nice addition to my routine!

    Rebecca-Louise –


    Not bad article, I like it. (:

    Love, unicorns and glitter on you. <3


  • AnaliseVT

    My skin has been sooo dry lately I will 100% have to try this out! Love clinique products too! X

  • Rachelle

    I have combination skin and i’m always wary of using really mosturising products on my face as they give me really bad breakouts but this sounds really lovely. I might have to give it a try 🙂

  • Eleanor

    This sounds great, it’s nice to see other moisturising masks being talked about!
    Eleanor x

  • Natalie

    This sounds lovely. I have been looking for a good face mask. My skin is so dry I will be giving this a shot. X

  • Emily-Rose

    This sounds right up my street! Will definitely be giving this a go. x

  • Sophie

    Definitely going to try this out!

  • Felicitas

    I would love to try this out, but I can’t find it in the German Clinique Online Shop! 🙁 Do you know if it’s already available somewhere else on “the continent”? 🙂

    • Kate

      Hey, try department stores perhaps? I’m sure some of them will deliver x

  • LucyLovesToBlog

    Ooh this sounds lovely, I adore Clinique! xx

  • lucee m

    This sounds absolutely perfect! I loved the moisture surge gel in the pot and a mask sounds lovely!
    I easily break out too which things that are too strong or rich – currently nursing an erruption of chin volcanoes as we speak :'(

    Got to give this a go

  • i love the idea of moisture masks 🙂

  • I just got a sample of the Origins Overnight Mask, I tried it last night and today I woke up with a HUGE bump on my cheek, almost like a cyst under the skin. And it hurt and was pretty red. I don’t know if I should blame the mask for this, but I never had such thing before. And now I read that it seemed to be too rich for you, too. I might try the clinique one next 😉
