I received a sample of the Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer in my February Sephora Play! box.
This is a combination primer/moisturizer from Clinique’s new pep-start range. It primes your face blurring imperfections and creating a smooth surface for your foundation, while moisturizing all day. It also controls oil throughout the day, they say for eight hours.
This product feels very silky and moisturizing when applied to the face. I have been using it in the mornings before applying my foundation. One thing I do especially like, it cuts two steps down to one! Anything that can save me time in the mornings, especially on work days, is a plus in my book.
I can feel that it creates a smooth, matte surface for my foundation. My foundation lasts well throughout the day and I am not one to reapply anything throughout the day. However, I will say I also don’t have a big problem with excess oil on my face.
The cost is $29.50 for the biggest pot at 1.7oz. I have seen worse in the terms of price and this is taking the place of two products. Depending on how long this size lasts, I wouldn’t consider this price bad at all. I have gotten several days out of my sample and still have quite a bit left. It doesn’t take too much.
Has anyone else try this or anything else from their new pep-start range? What are your thoughts?
