Clinique Youth Surge SPF15 Moisturizer

Clinique’s revolutionary anti-aging formula.

Clinique’s Youth Surge SPF15 moisturizer features cutting-edge Sirtuins (longevity genes) that are natural youth-extending agents found in the skin. The scientists at Clinique are especially excited as they consider it a breakthrough technology in the fight against age. We asked Clinique to explain the technology to us:

Butterboom: What is the 1 unique thing that makes this product outstanding?
Clinique: Sirtuin Technology

Butterboom: What are this product’s main 3 ingredients and what do they do?

The cream is an exclusive blend of ingredients: i) Isoniacinamide and NADH helps skin extend its natural cellular longevity, and optimizes its reparative functions which results in youthful looking skin. ii) Enzyme Micrococcus Lysate which is a repair-boosting agent that enhances the skin’s natural ability to combat damaged skin iii) Energy molecules, Adenosine Phosphate and Creatine, help skin utilize its “fuel” in its most efficient manner during the night, when skin is most receptive to reparative treatment. And finally we had to mention Hydroxyproline, which is an amino acid abundant in collagen and acts as a signaling agent to the skin to promote repair from within.

Butterboom: Is it suitable for all skin types?

Clinique: Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer is available in three skin type formulas including:

  • Very Dry to Dry – if you have very dry to dry skin
  • Dry Combination – an ultra soft emollient cream for dry and combination skin types
  • Combination Oily to Oily- a lightweight cream that is oil-free for oily skin types
