Clinique is about to extend its moisturizing range Moisture Surge with a new formula : Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15.

According to Clinique, this product is intended to answer the needs of “all foundation-phobes”, associating “a hint of skin-perfecting colour with just enough coverage to make the appearance of imperfections disappear, providing a naturally pretty look”.

The novelty of this product is its texture, closer to a skincare than a foundation, described as a “super hydrating, lightweight modern gel-cream”.

This product is another candidate in the trend to soften the frontier between skincare and make-up.

  1. Looks like it will be replacing the almost make up foundation. I was intrigued till I saw “MENTHOL”. Can you say hello irritant! I will stick with my sheer tint! Clinique needs to be more irritant aware for us sensitive skin gals!

    • The most probable reason why Clinique added Menthol to its formula is to improve freshness when the product is applied. This Tinted Moisturizer is indeed described as a “gel-cream”, which is usually a fresh, aqueous, light texture. But the product contains pigments, and UV filters, which not helps to formulate a fresh gel-cream. Menthol seems thus here a kind of “formulation trick”. But maybe some users like you will not tolerate it.
