    Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

    I use this lotion everyday and I love it. It was difficult for me to find a lotion that worked well with oily skin. Most lotions were either too heavy or too light. This one is perfect for day wear alone or under makeup. It's also really good after a deep cleaning mask.

        Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

        I use this moisturizer day and night. In the morning after my shower I put it on immediately to seal in moisture. At night after I wash my face I use more than in the morning. I wake up with soft skin as well as have soft non dry and non greasy skin all day. I like the gel better than the lotion because it goes farther and settles better into my skin.

        not bad for price

        By themanataur

        from Columbia, sc

        Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

        Not bad for the price. Not sticky, glides on my acne prone skin well. Great price but I don't reach for it all the time. Definitely a good daytime maybe not nighttime hardcore moisturizer.

                  I tend to get super oily skin in the winter, but also lots of dry patches from swimming in a chlorinated pool. This product is perfect because it moisturizes super well, but has 0 oily or greasy residue. on top of that, i feel like it actually controls oil--when I moisturize my face at night, it may feel great when I go to bed but then in the morning it tends to feel greasy. with this product, my skin is soft and smooth and ready for makeup by the morning! my only complaint is that one pump doesn't dispense that much, so i find myself using about 5 pumps for my whole face. But I would definitely recommend it, especially because it's on the cheaper side of high-end skincare!

                    I have combination oily skin, and every moisturizer I've tried either doesn't moisturize enough, or gives too much moisture/leaves a greasy residue on my skin, forcing me to wait 20 mins to half an hour after application before I could prime/apply my makeup. For anyone questioning why I wait, you're supposed to wait between layers to let each one absorb thoroughly. Trust me, try it. This is lightweight, absorbs within a few minutes (if that) and gives the perfect balance of moisture and oil control, so my makeup looks beautiful for a good 8 hours now, whereas before it looked terrible after 3. It's also less expensive than my old moisturizer, has more product, a way better pump, and overnight I saw a decrease in pore size, general texture and oil production. My skin looks and feels plump and healthy for the first time!

                        A:

                        Both of these moisturizers are oil free. Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel hydrates and strengthens skin. They both contain humectants that bind water to the skin. Moisture Surge also contains calming ingredients and helps the skin to adjust to shifts in humidity and temperature. They are both wonderful products.

                        This is an oil free moisturizer for the skin. It will hydrate the skin, which improves the wear of your makeup. If you are still looking to improve the skins texture, allowing for more even foundation application, you could absolutely partner it with Clinique's Superprimer Universal Face Primer.

                        Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + balances skins moisture levels, providing all day comfort. It will strengthen skin by 54% in 8 weeks, so moisture is retained and skin looks healthier. It is not a dark spot correcting product. You may want to partner this moisturizer with products like Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector and Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer or Lotion SPF 20. Even Better Clinical Dark a Spot Corrector will reduce dark spots by 58% in 12 weeks when partnered with a sunscreen.
