    I put two layers of this on at night and once in the morning. It's absolutely amazing and I totally obsessed with it. It moisturizes my skin so well and makes it look so healthy and glowy, and feel so smooth. When I use it overnight I can definitely see a difference in the texture and brightness in my skin the next day. Absolutely amazing.

                    I have been searching for a moisturizer that is great for both dry skin, but an occasionally oily T zone. I finally found it. I use it once a day before bedtime & I will up with moisturized and very soft skin. Some people may like to use it more or less often, but it's become a very important step in my nightly routine.

                        A:

                        Hi! Thank you for your question. Can you tell me more about the dryness you are experiencing? Is the dryness tightness that you actually feel in the skin, or is it flakiness that you see on the surface of the skin? Oil is one of the factors that cause acne, so you are smart to use all oil free products. Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel should offer nice oil free hydration for your skin that won't break you out.
                        If the dryness you are speaking of is flakiness that you can see, vs. tightness that you feel, I suggest adding in chemical exfoliation. For example, you may want to try Clinique's Clarifying Lotion, Clinique's Turnaround Concentrate, or Clinique's Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                        A:

                        Hi! If you can use an oil free product and feel comfortable, all you truly need is hydration, which you can receive from the gel.
                        On the other hand, if your skin continues to feel tight and dry in the cheek area, as if it is pulling or uncomfortable, your skin needs oil, which you would get from the lotion plus.
                        Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!
