        Im only on day 2 but i have seen such improvement! I had to consistently use the oil absorbing sheets throughout my day and im using only like 2 which is huge! I use the product in the morning before I put on my makeup. If it continues to do what it has done for me in these 2 days then I will be very happy and I will continue to purchase!

          Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

          This was exactly what I needed. A well regarded, not overpriced day moisturizer that won't irritate my acne prone-skin or leave me looking like an oil slick. It feels great to put on after toning, absorbs quickly, and gives me a good base for makeup. I don't know why it took me so long to try Clinique products, I think I was too apprehensive to try a prestige brand because I was used to just buying cheaper products. Now I know that spending a little more can have a big payout in the long run. I'll continue to buy this as long as it keeps my skin clear, bright, and moisturized.

                            Hi! This is an oil free moisturizer, so if your face becomes oily during the day, this seems to be the best option for you. It is normal to feel dry when you get out of the shower, so you are smart to replenish water that is needed for hydration. I am noting the ingredients below for you to review. Clinique is great for sensitive skin, and I appreciate your interest in the brand. Have a wonderful week!

                            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.
