I’m barely questioning anything that Clinique is doing at the moment, although I am sure something will come along soon to give a side-eye to sooner or later, but right now they’re on fire. One of their newest products is Clinique Moisture Surge Melting Mask Balm (I have two other oil based products here from Clinique but haven’t had a chance to try them yet) which is going to be your guardian angel for winter skin if you run to dry and uncomfortable when it gets cold.
The joy of this product is that you can use it as an over-nighter, a ten minute moisture replenishing mask or as a dry skin comforter whenever you need it. The pot is tiny (14ml) – I thought it was going to be cleansing balm sized – but I can assure you that a little goes a long way. If the pot was more generous, I’d be putting this on post-holiday shins. Ingredient wise, the main players are Apricot oil, Sunflower oil and Macadamia oil – none of which are particularly expensive ingredients now I think about it, but the balm plays out as silky on the skin, and instantly gets rid of any tightness. The one downside to this is that it does leave a sheen on the skin which lessens as time goes on, but personally I’d only be using this at night.
Clinique Moisture Surge Melting Mask Balm is £26 and it launches tomorrow (2nd October).

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
