Yes this is a build up from my previous post. In case you missed it, you can catch up here. However, this is the post where I reveal the contents of the box I was given at the re-launch of Clinique’s free standing store at Jabi Lake Mall.
During the drive home, I stared at the box and wondered how the heck I could teach my skin to rehydrate itself. I got home and excitedly opened the box. Inside, I was very kindly gifted an MS72 Water bottle and if you’ve followed me long enough then you know how much I love getting new bottles for my detox drinks, my smoothies and early morning pick-me-ups. I was also gifted a silicon sleep mask. I just recently got a whiff of the importance of sleep masks and how beneficial they are in improving sleep and protecting the skin from the wrinkles on the pillow. Thirdly and most importantly, I was gifted the Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator.
As a Twenty-Something year old Nigerian Lady with acne prone brown skin, I am very conscious and intentional about the way I treat my skin and I take all the necessary steps to ensure that I glow in my natural (make-up free) state. So this pot of Magic is right up my street. The hydrator (moisture surge) delivers up to 72 hours of continuous moisture – even after washing your face. For as long as I can remember, whenever I pat my face dry after a wash, my skin would feel dry – and I thought that meant I had gotten all the grime and dirt out and my pores were taking in some much needed air. Apparently, I was also losing a bit of my skin’s natural oils but thanks to this pot of magic, I’m about to effectively correct that.
It is formulated with hyaluronic acid -which in itself is a moisture binding ingredient that keeps the skin looking plump-and holds and up to 1000x it’s weight in water. But here is where things get very interesting – it also contains Activated Aloe Water and Caffeine which helps the skin to create its own internal water source, allowing the skin to endlessly hydrate itself. Scientists may not have invented time machines yet and I may not be able to turn back the hands of time but if my skin can afford to have it’s own internal water source to keep hydrated, I think we’re good here. Don’t you? Just as the name implies, the Moisture surge infuses an instant dose of water into the skin by 152%, thereby providing a refreshing 72 hours of hydration for dewy plump skin. I don’t know about you but I’m here for this.
Now just as I said in my previous post, this product is due to be launched in Nigeria by August and the Clinique Team very kindly gifted me this to try it out, share my opinion and tell you guys how it fares with my skin. So I have created a highlighted story on my Instagram Page @Kachi_of_Staples where I will share my journey to a more hydrated skin with you and I invite you to come along.
Many thanks once again to the Clinique Team for sending me a pot of magic. All the pores in my skin thank you in advance for doing them some much needed good. lol!
Thanks for reading.
