        Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

        My face is VERY oily in the T zone during the summer. Any moisturizer i use makes my entire face super oily, by the end of the day my face is completely oily and shiny. And my makeup comes off because of it. This stuff doesnt make my face oily at all. At the end of my work day, my face is barely getting some shine. I only use this during the day to wear under my makeup. I feel if i wear it both during the day and night my face starts drying out and doesnt get enough mositure.

          I recently started using Clinique again. I use this as part of the 3-Step system. I like this for ease of application and the quick absorption of the gel. What I wasn't so fond of was the tight sensation of my skin after the gel absorbed into my skin. I then added the Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil to my skin regimen. Now I find that tight sensation was blown away into soft and supple skin (yay!). My 42 year-old self is delighted that my skin feels like my 20 year-old self who first started using Clinique.

                I'm on my second now. It's very light weight, goes on smoothly. I use it every time after I cleans my face. I have combination skin, a little oily in my T zone & this gives me face the right balance. I have tried the lotion & that one seems to over moisturize my face to the point it gets very greasy. When I find that my skin needs a little extra moisturizer I just apply a 2nd layer of this gel before I do my makeup & I'm very pleased with it.

                  I was looking for a Gel moisturizer at a lower cost compared to Lancomes Benifiet Aqua Vital and this was recommended to me because generally the gel hybrids work best on my normal to combination skin. This product does go on nicely and absorbs quickly but sadly does not deliver enough hydration for my skin. I find myself using 4x the amount of product to keep my skin hydrates compared to Lancomes product. Seems like a great product, just not the right one for my skin.

                        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.
