Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer Review

Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer beauty review
It's been almost a year since I posted my skincare routine so it's high time I did an update. Not much has changed though. If I like a product I stick to it and I find it hard to try new things because I fear I may not like them.

Last Christmas I finished my Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (also known as Clinique's Step 3) and decided to try something new since it made my forehead and nose oily after a few hours. Being a teacher I only get one bathroom break a day so I need my make-up to last the whole day in place. I don't have time for retouches and I don't want to worry about it either.

When I heard Clinique had a new moisturizer I decided to give it a try. I must confess I was partly lured by the pretty packaging. Apart from being a high quality brand, Clinique sure knows how to create eye-catching products. I've been using the Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer for four months now and I only have good words for it. These are its strong points:

  • When you apply it on your skin you feel instantly refreshed.
  • It's oil free and lightweight, therefore skin doesn't get oily at all. 
  • It kind of works as a primer since the HydroBlur Technology moisturizes while softly blurring imperfections. In other words, it creates a canvas to apply your foundation.
  • Flawless matte finish.

Clinique has different versions of the same moisturizers depending on your skin type but they say that this one works for all types. My skin is more on the dry side although the T-zone can get a little oily at the end of the day but as I stated before, it works for me. So I will surely continue to use it in the future. The next Clinique product I'm going to try is the Pep-Start 2 in 1 exfoliating cleanser. I've been told is a great travel companion. Since it's two products in one, it makes your toiletries bag a little less heavy and your skincare routine faster. I don't know about you but when I travel I'm so tired at the end of the day that the last thing I want is to spend a long time preparing for bed.

In my opinion this product is worth a try. Have you tried any of the Pep-Start products? Are you as crazy about Clinique as I am?
