      This is my new favorite Clinique product. I was given a gift set that was like a seven-day starter and I became instantly obsessed. So I was very happy to go back and get a bigger bottle. I use this with the face wash and the Moisture Surge moisturizer afterwards with wonderful results.

                    Hi! I am so sorry to hear this! Thank you for reaching out. Typically a skin type #2 uses Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion Plus, as it is for a combination skin type. The gel that you are currently using is for a skin type that not experiencing any type of dryness in the skin at all, and it sounds like that isn't the case for your skin. If your skin feels tight and uncomfortable in the cheek area on a daily bases, and you have a need for an oil rich moisturizer, I suggest switching the moisturizer versus the clarifying lotion. Please let me know if this helps. Have a wonderful week!

                    A:

                    Hi! Clarifying Lotion offers chemical exfoliation. If you have dry portions where you see flakiness on the surface, this is actually simply a need for exfoliation. This product will help greatly. It will also help your moisturizer to penetrate into the skin more quickly and easily. Thank you for using Clinique!

                    Hi. No, it is not scented. All Clinique products are fragrance free. Clinique knows fragrance can be irritating to skin, so we never add fragrance to mask the smell of any natural ingredients. Thank you for your question.
