    Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

    This is the only moisturizer I use. I have sensitive, combination skin with acne. This is the only moistizer that doesn't break me out or make my skin more oily. I use it with the Clinique toner.

        Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

        I have pretty oily skin and the only other moisturizer that could effectively control my oils was the Jafra mattifying hydrator (dupe alert, only 12 bucks). I got the 5 dollar sample from ulta a couple months ago but after the first time I tried it I got hooked! It's hydrating but dries on matte and fairly quick, sometimes I forget to prime my face and my foundation still holds! I bit the bullet and bought the large version and I'm excited for summer to get here so I can put it to the real test.

          Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

          I have dermatitis on my nose and many moisturizers would inflame the area so I was constantly using my medicine for my dermatitis. This is the ONLY moisturizer so far that I've tried that doesn't irritate the area which means I rarely use my medicine! It also of course is great at moisturizing my face where it's not to heavy or greasy and using under my makeup it works awesome!

          I am an older adult and felt that this moisturizer would have been good for my skin many years ago. I tried this out because I loved Clinic in my younger days. Using it now I find it does not moisturize my skin like I need it to do. I put it on after a shower and within 30 minutes my face feels dry.

                        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.

                        A:

                        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.
