Aallexxy's Foundation Files; Moisture Surge CC Cream Compact SPF25

Foundation Files; This is where I test out different base products, from concealer to powder, tinted moisturiser and foundation etc, over a period of 7-14 days and post my findings. (Follow me on Instagram,Twitter and Bloglovin so you don't miss a post) So let’s get started!!!

First off some information about me; Skintype: Combination (leaning dry in winter and Oily in Summer). Shade Reference:in between MAC NC45-50/NW43. Undertones: Yellow/Neutral.

What The brand says: Hydration, SPF and colour correcting optics in one simple step. Little flaws disappear-redness, dullness, sallowness-everything's brighter. Lightweight, oil-free hydration and sunscreen mean a more flawless look tomorrow, too. Each versatile shade is appropriate for a range of skin tones, also available in liquid form; Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector SPF30, reviewed here. Can also be worn over your favourite clinique moisturiser (a great option for drier skins), men can wear it too-it blends easily for a healthy look.
Wear time (with/without primer): The wear time is good on this, despite it being for dry skin with and without primer, I ensured I prepared my skin accordingly with a lightweight moisturiser.

Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Compact SPF25 Inci list
Oxidation: None
Any Other Information: Clinique state this is for dry to dry combination skin, so I was worried on my combination summer oily skin it would be a problem, especially with the warm weather we've been having. However it was great, my oils definitely pushed through as the day went on, but it gave me a glow not an oil slick look. Super oily girls may want to try the other version however, which I think has a wider shade range too. 

Conclusion: This is a great lightweight base with added SPF and hydration, in a compact that's great for travel. It leaves a nice skin like finish, whether applied with a sponge or a brush, but needs a shade extension.
