              Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

              i have oily skin. finiding a moisturizer that didnt make me feel disgusting after I wash my face was an ongoing battle. Ive tried my share of brands and none of them even the ones that physically specified "oily skin" felt good on my skin. it got to where I stopped adding moisterizer to my face because 3.6 seconds my face just felt nasty to where if I put a piece of paper on my face it will stick. EW. anyway, this stuff is a gift from the gurus. it is light perfect for oily skin I dont feel like I have a second face on when i am wearing it i just feel a soft hydrated face. I will probably get a bigger bottle next time i got the smallest one because I thought it was like all the rest of them and wont work but it is NOT at all this baby is in its own leauge.

                  • Q:

                    Will the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel work well with the BIY Blend It Yourself? I have used the "gel" for years and love it! Just wondering if the BIY is only for use with the "lotion" or if the "gel" will work well too. Thank you in advance for fielding my question.

                      A:

                      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!

                      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!
