How Does Moisture Surge 100H Protect Your Skin From Everyday Aggressors?

Launched in 1988, before the gel-based skincare trend had even begun, the Moisture Surge hydrator quickly became Clinique’s #1 moisturiser and for good reason. Now powered by a state-of-the-art 100H Auto-Replenishing Technology, Moisture Surge 100H feeds your skin with amazing benefits that last not just for hours, but for days.

Discover how our Moisture Surge 100H works in protecting skin against everyday aggressors:

What are the ingredients in Clinique Moisture Surge 100H?

There are three key ingredients in Moisture Surge 100H that, when combined, are able to penetrate deep into the skin’s surface for stabilising hydration that goes over ten layers deep and lasts for 100 hours:

Aloe bio-ferment. An exclusive ingredient, aloe bio-fermented helps to break large molecules into smaller sizes that are easier for your skin to absorb – one of the several benefits of fermentation in skincare. Made from lactobacillus, activated aloe water and aloe extract powder, aloe bio-ferment plumps up the skin with nutrient-rich moisture.

Hyaluronic acid. When we talk about skin hydration, there’s one ingredient that immediately comes to mind, and that’s hyaluronic acid. This powerful humectant works as a moisture binder, and thanks to its unique ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water, it helps create a “moisture reservoir” your skin can rely on.

Activated aloe water. Effective in helping your skin absorb and lock in maximum moisture, activated aloe water is an excellent ingredient to pair with potent humectants like hyaluronic acid to prolong their benefits. Plus, its calming and soothing properties will make your skin feel supple and comfortable all day long.


Moisture Surge 100H is also supercharged with a blend of Vitamin C and E, which provides powerful antioxidant benefits, ideal for protecting skin against irritation caused by invisible everyday aggressors.

What aggressors does Moisture Surge 100H protect against?

Every day, your skin is exposed to external and internal aggressors that, over time, can lead to dryness, discomfort and damage. The good news is that with the right skincare products in your collection, you can prevent this damage from occurring and maintain a healthy, radiant complexion for longer.

If you’re wondering how to repair your skin barrier and shield it against everyday dehydrators, few products are more effective than Moisture Surge 100H. Thanks to its powerful formula, this moisturiser is excellent for protecting the skin against:

Pollution. Many studies have tied pollution with premature ageing, inflammation and discolouration due to the air toxins that break down collagen and, consequently, damage the skin barrier.

Blue light. Most of us spend several hours a day in front of our phones, laptops or TV screens, and the blue light that these devices emit can speed up the ageing process, as well as lead to skin tone issues.

UV rays. We’ve all heard about it and many of us have experienced it before: sun damage can lead to a number of skin issues, including premature ageing, painful sunburns, uneven melanin production and rough skin texture.

Extreme weather and climate changes. Cold temperatures can dry out your skin, while on hot days, it’s not uncommon to notice excessive oil production and consequent breakouts.

Barrier damage due to ageing. As you age, your skin barrier weakens and your collagen production reduces, which can result in hyperpigmentation, dryness and a lack of elasticity. Although this is inevitable, it’s possible to slow down the process.

Mask wearing. Masks create a closed-up environment that leads to excess moisture on your skin, which can cause breakouts (or ‘maskne’) to occur, especially if you wear a mask that is too tight.

Air travel. The pressurised environment of a plane can reduce the blood flow of the skin, which can make it look dull, dry and irritated.

Moisture Surge’s skin protection benefits help soothe and stabilise your skin from the effects of these and other skin saboteurs which would otherwise lead to damage. One layer of this light moisturiser doesn’t just feel good on your skin, but it nourishes and reinvigorates it from within for a glowing complexion that can endure anything.


How to use Moisture Surge 100H

Learning how to hydrate your skin with Moisture Surge 100H couldn’t be easier: simply apply it every morning and night on clean, dry skin.

For even deeper hydration, apply a layer of our Moisture Surge™ Hydro-Infused Lotion before the moisturiser. This watery lotion will replenish your skin with an extra dose of aloe bioferment and hyaluronic acid to refine your skin’s texture and instantly plump it up.

Remember that you can reapply Moisture Surge 100H throughout the day, particularly if your skin is on the drier side or if it’s simply calling for a radiance boost. You can also apply it under or even over your go-to foundation to achieve a gorgeous dewy, sheer look.
