I got a free sample of youth surge (no caps!) SPF 15 from Clinique when I bought some new eyeshadow there a few weeks ago. To be honest, I'm 22 years old and didn't even think of using it until my boyfriend spotted it. He immediately exclaimed, "Oh wow, this stuff is amazing! I just bought my mom two things of it because she loves it so much!" Turns out, he acutally used it himself too and really loved it :) So I gave it a try, and right away I liked it. Its so thick and creamy when you put it on, but its actually really light, and not oily at all. You just feel like you're really getting a ton of rich moisture all over your face. I used it a few days in a row, and my skin was super clear, silky smooth, and felt great! I would reccomend this product to anyone--although I can't speak to whether it stops the aging process, I hope it does, because I definitely will continue to use it, just because I like it so much!

Doesn't Match Up to Avon Anew Products

When I first switched to Clinique beauty products, I thought they were far superior. Indeed they still are, but in comparison, they were superior to what I was using at the time. I have since switched to Avon Anew skin care products which I like so much better in terms of how they make my skin feel. Yet I still wear the Clinique makeup, so when I went in to go pick up more, I got a free sample of  Youth Surge SPF15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer, which I hadn't ever tried. I decided to see how it compared to the Avon products I was used to. While the Avon products in their Anew line always make my skin feel great, the Youth Surge feels thick and heavy when I put it on, the oppoiste of what you want an angi-aging moisturizer to feel like. It doesn't seem to absorb well into my skin, making it feel like I'm slathering something on top of it instead of treating it. The point of using anti-aging products is to reverse the process so that your skin looks younger, not just so that you skin feels younger while you're wearing it. What I do like abut the Clinique skincare products is that they have the same skincare system that you apply whether it's the morning or night, unlike Avon. With Avon you often have one product for the daytime with an SPF, and another for the nighttime. I don't necessarily want to spend the money on double the products, and I don't want to have to keep double the products around. However, when all is said and done, I'll stick with the Avon Anew product line. I would rather have my skin feeling what I know is its best and spend a little more on a few more products than spend less and have a less cluttered bathroom, yet have skin that doesn't feel as good.

Clinique is awesome

By 

from USA

Comments about Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer:

I really love this stuff. It's a great moisturizer for my skin. It makes my skin feel very soft and supple. When I use it daily like I should by the end of the week I notice a huge difference in my skin and the firmness of it. I know this product doesn't boast that it helps with firmness but I believes just due to the decelerating moisturizer portion of it that it does help to make me look younger. I do have pretty good skin to begin with but this stuff makes my face look very healthy.

Absorption
It absorbs right away and it starts working straight away just like it should.

Doesn't Clog Pores
I do not have breakouts when I use this product and it does not clog my pores at all.

Effectiveness
I really think this stuff can help anybody's skin get back to a more supple younger looking face.
It works so good and I look even younger then I think I should. I've been mistaken for a 20 year old and I'm going on thirty five year old. I get that genetics play a part but this product helps tremendously as well.
If you want baby soft skin again then use this stuff. It works so well..

Good as a moisturizer but didn't see huge difference in wrinkles

By 

from USA

Comments about Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer:

I obtained this product as a full-size trial from clinique's promotion, and so I have been using it for about a month now. What I like about this is that it is a very light product. It sinks in easily and doesn't sit on the skin. With that said, it still provides a lot of moisture and would probably be great for dry skin. It's almost (but not quite) too much for my oily skin. So, if I was to rate it on its moisturizing capabilities, I would probably give this a 5.

However, I am giving this a 3 because I am not sure it actually does what it's supposed to. I haven't really noticed a reduction in wrinkles or fine lines since I started using this. The first week I was using this, it did seem to make my face a little brighter! But I don't notice it as much any more, don't know if my face got used to it, or what. However, one good thing about this is that, it does make your skin feel softer. So if that's what you're looking for out of this product, go ahead and try it. But I wouldn't recommend it so much for fine lines.

Absorption
It sinks in fairly quickly :)

Doesn't Clog Pores
I don't think it has clogged my pores, but I have broken out slightly in a few areas that I don't normally have breakouts. Don't know if it's from this product, but thought I would mention it.

Effectiveness
I haven't noticed a decrease in fine lines, but it does make my skin soft when I use it.

Summarize this product in one sentence.

By 

from Portland, OR

Comments about Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer:

Fantastic, and I would recommend this product to everyone.

Absorption
I absolutely love how this product works! My skin feels nourished all day long, without a trace of oily or shiny residue.

Doesn't Clog Pores
Even when I have a little bit of a pimple popping up, an application of this product does not clog my pores or make my pimple or complexion worse.

Effectiveness
This product is effective on my skin when dry and/or oily, reducing signs of wrinkles on my face and neck.

One of my favorite moisturizers ever!

By 

from Woodland Hills, CA

Comments about Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer:

I've been using this cream for a couple years now and will continue buying it probably forever, lol. I'm a total product junkie and absolutely love trying new things and getting samples, especially for skin care products so I've tried a ton of stuff! I have extremely dry skin and problems with adult acne and this is one of the only creams that really helps with my dry skin and doesn't irritate my extremely sensitive skin and make me break out, which has been a really hard thing to find. Most creams won't even soak into my skin it just beads up and flakes off, it's so frustrating!!

And not only that but it has really helped firm up and tighten my skin and helps with wrinkles. It has really made my skin look younger and healthier. I suffer from chronic pain so a lot of the time my forehead is all wrinkled and tensed up and especially with my extremely dry skin it leaves bad deep lines all the way across my forehead. I didn't I'd ever find anything to help get rid o them, but now after using this cream they were dramatically reduced, thank you Clinique!

Burned my eyes for days - Contacted the FDA

By 

from Juneau, AK

Comments about Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer:

i have used Clinique products for over 20 years and never had a bad reaction.  I have allergies to many fragranced makeups and this is the principle reason why I use Clinique products.

I used this product for three days - my nose ran, eyes swelled and burned.  I contacted Clinique via email with zero response.  Re-contacted them with zero response.  I've contacted the FDA to report an adverse reaction.  Perhaps that will get their attention.

Clearly, they have no customer service orientation.  No longer a customer!

Good overall moisturizer

By 

from Bossier City, LA

Comments about Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer:

I love Clinique products, so I was looking forward to trying this one. I received it as part of a gift with purchase, which is a good thing because it's rather expensive. I wasn't really impressed with this product. It's a good basic moistuizer, but not anything I can't get with Olay Regenerist or another less expensive product. Also, it doesn't sink in right away and didn't help with my fine lines at all.

Clinique's Youth Surge Moisturizer delivers

By 

from Lexington, NC

Comments about Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer:

I started using this moisturizer when I received it in a free gift package. I had been using a cheap moisturizer, and had picked up a different brand of makeup with moisturizer built in, but neither seemed to be taking care of my dry skin.  The first time I used this moisturizer, I was surprised at how effective it is at first try.  My skin felt smoother almost immediately, and a week after I could tell an ongoing different.  My small wrinkles are no longer as noticeable, and I don't have to use the makeup with the moisturizer built in.  The initial feeling of cool comfort feels so amazing to dry skin!  I am a bargain shopper, and normally don't buy name brand products.  However, I plan to purchase this product again and would recommend it.

Clinique Youth Surge Daytime Moisturizer to keep your skin young

By 

from Merrillville, IN

Comments about Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer:

Clinique Youth Surge Daytime Moisturizer is one of those creams that claims to do so much of what you're looking for.  The best thing about it, is that it doesn't disappoint!  It's (as Clinique is always known for) allergy tested, fragrance free, and it's also available in three formulas based on your skin type.  There is a very dry formula that has a rich creamy texture, great for those with the constant all day dry, tight skin.  The dry combination is oil-free and feels non greasy but is still rich enough in texture to moisturize those dry areas of the face.  My favorite though was the oily skin formula.  It's an oil-free lightweight, almost whipped, texture.  The Youth Surge moisturizer glides over the skin so nicely and best of all, you need so very little of it.  It's designed with wrinkle fighting ingredients so it seems to smooth out those lines and wrinkles on the face.  With the built in sunscreen, an SPF 15, it has daily protection to help prevent more damage from coming about.  If you were one to be outdoors longer periods of time, I would definately recommend wearing a higher SPF with it though.  Overall,  I really enjoyed the feel of the product.  After giving it a full month, I saw a smoother surface on my forehead, which was my main concern area.
