Disappointing

2

I hate to be negative but I could not find anything nice to say about this moisturizer other than it didn't leave my skin feeling greasy...but i guess that's because it didn't leave it moisturized enough to set on my skin. It was like applying water and I was so disappointed. I tried it because of the excellent reviews I read but I found it to not be a high-end quality moisturizer I'd use again. It didn't so much absorb as dry on my skin and I could see it under my foundation in spots. My skin wasn't hydrates all day and the most dramatically different part of it all is the product I exchanged this one for. I don't recommend it but it gets great reviews so maybe try it if you want. Remember though, it's good for some and terrible for others so make sure that where you buy it from takes returns on open products

I love this moisturizer!!

I have combination skin, and although i havent bought this in awhile, it is amazing. I love how it makes my skin feel after i put it on. Yes it is on the pricier side, but if you don't mind spending the extra cash i think this is great! You could also ask for a sample!

Best for oily/combination skin

My skin gets sensitive sometimes, although I use various types of products but this ones is one of my favorite. It just blends very perfectly and removes redness. I have a combination skin and this ones works superb for my skin.

Got this product free with a purchase

I got this in the 3 step kit. I have combination skin and doesn't moisturize well enough for me but with someone who is more on the oily side I think this product would be perfect!

A Perfect Moisturizer

5

This is a great moisturizer for morning or night! I have oily to combination skin, and it gives me the perfect balance of moisture, without feeling or looking greasy. The texture is very light, and absorbs quickly. I like that there are no added irritating ingredient's or smells. It does a great job soothing my face after my at home facial peel. I would definitely recommend this product!

Decent, but prefer the lotion

I have used Clinique Dramatically different moisturizing lotion for quite a number of years. I have very dry skin, and the lotion always seemed to do the job. Awhile ago I received a sample of the dramatically different moisturizing gel, and while it is very similar to the lotion, it just doesn't have the same moisturizing power for me. It was okay, smelled similar, but with any gel moisturizing product, can be a little sticky, which I don't really love. I didn't find that this product carried the same weight as far as moisturizing my very dry skin, so perhaps this product would be better suited for someone with oily skin. I don't think I would ever actually use this again or buy it at full price, just because I don't really prefer the feeling of a gel moisturizer, and it just didn't provide enough moisture to last me through the day. Effectiveness Didn't work that well for me, but I have very, very dry skin. Perhaps it would be better for an oily type skin.

Not worth the expense.

Clinique has always been a premier beauty brand. I would never spend the extravagant amount of money on a moisturizer. I prefer the beauty bargains of the discount and drug stores. As this was a gift from a coworker I was so excited to try it. However, I found the moisturizing results to be comparable to my drugstore bargains, and I noticed no improvement in my skin's tone and texture. Clinique touts itself as a great remedy for treating dark spots. My dark spots showed no lessening or lightening. Effectiveness I have never purchased beauty items at a department store before. All of my beauty purchases have come from discount or drug stores. I was gifted this lotion by a co-worker who had switched facial care brands. I had a lot of expectations for the moisturizing qualities of the more expensive formula. While it did a fair job of keeping my dry skin from flaking, I did not notice a difference in my skin texture or evenness. The heavy scent of the product did make the sensitive skin on my cheeks a bit irritated. Ease of Application I will say that this formula was very easy to spread onto my skin and neck. The packaging is very small which made it easy for me to toss in my gym bag. Scent If you like a heavily perfumed lotion, than this is made for you. I prefer to have a lightly scented lotion that does not interfere with my other perfumes and hair products. With my sensitive skin, I like to use lotions that are not too heavily scented.

Gives nice moisture but can be sticky!

I have been using this product for over 10 years. My last bottle seemed to be a bit stickier a than the norm. It also seemed to lay on the top of my face and it took a limp g time to sink in. It seems to have had some tweeking with the formula. Effectiveness Feels good, but it doesn't seem to go the distance. I need a makeup priming base over this moisturizing. They could begin the type out a regiment for morning and evenings. I really haven't seen much improvement with my fine lines. It also takes several minutes for the product to be absorbed. I wish Clinique would add something to correct aging brown spots. Ease of Application Whether you use the pump or the tump be, the product flows nicely. I prefer the pump as it is stable and I get a better amount of product with one pump. I think you get a more accurate amount of product using the pump. Scent Very slight if any odor. There was not enough fragrance to be offensive. It is a clean odor and very in offensive.

my favorite summer moisturizer

5

This is definitely my favorite summer moisturizer. I use many different moisturizers, but I always find myself going back to this one. It is very light weight. The yellow tint to it is also good for redness. Since it is a gel formula, it is very cooling and soothing. It keeps my face moisturized all day. I have very oily skin, and I find that this moisturizer absorbs into my skin very quickly and I continue to stay matte all day. It is also good for my sensitive skin considering it doesn't have a fragrance or any harsh chemicals. Ease of Application The moisturizer in the tube is amazing, however the one in the square pump bottle is a pain in the butt. At first it is really easy to use, but whenever you get closer to the bottom, it is harder to get the product out. I find myself having to unscrewing the pump and tapping it out onto my hand, and then applying it to my face. Scent I love the scent even though my husband hates it. I have a weird obsession with scents of my skin care products.
