                • Q:

                  My skin is all of the above: dry and tight feeling, red and sensitive, acne (not a ton, but too much), as well as the doctor demanded need for SPF because I am so pale. I tried the gel version of this and it did not hydrate nearly enough (tightness never went away). Would you recommend giving this one a go? Do you have a different recommendation?

                    A:

                    Hi! This is a great moisturizer and it will help with tightness, as it contains oil. You also mentioned acne, which is my biggest concern. If you are also experiencing acne, it sounds like you honestly may be dehydrated. If so, you could partner a moisture barrier repair product with the gel that you currently own to build back the barrier in an oil free way. I suggest trying Clinique's Moisture Surge franchise. Depending on the texture that you enjoy, you have many options in this formula. If you enjoy more of a lightweight feel, you may want to try Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirsty Relief Formula. If you like more of a creamy feel, you may want to try Clinique's Moisture Surge Intense Formula.
                    You also mentioned sunscreen, so if you are looking to apply a moisture booster that also contains SPF, you have several options. You may want to try one of the following, depending on your additional skin needs.
                    Clinique's Superdefense Daily Defense Moisturizer SPF 20
                    Clinique Smart Broad Spectrum SPF 15

                    Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                  Does this make your face shiny? I have dry skin, but lotions I use always make my face look too shiny/oily.....oleaginous, if you will. Or, any others that would help moisturize, yet not make shiny? thanks!!

                    A:

                    Hi! Thank you for your interest in Clinique! This moisturizer is loved by many. It is the #1 selling moisturizer in the world. It does contain oil, as it was created for dry skin, but the texture is not dewy, so if your skin needs the moisture, it will not cause a shine. On the other hand, if your skin isn't feeling tight or uncomfortable, you would probably enjoy an oil free moisturizer a bit more. You could try Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel instead, as it is oil free. If you are going to try an oil rich moisturizer, just be sure that your dryness truly is tightness and a feeling of discomfort on the skin versus a flakiness that you see on the surface of the skin. If it is in fact a flakiness that you see on the surface of the skin, this is more of a need for exfoliation vs. a need for an oil rich moisturizer. Thank you and have a wonderful week!

                    A:

                    Hi! If you experience tightness in the cheeks, and have a need for moisture throughout the day, yes, this would be a nice product for you. If your skin feels comfortable during the day without moisturizer or feels comfortable with an oil free moisturizer, I would suggest using Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel instead. It is an oil free version that may feel more lightweight on your skin if you are not experiencing true dryness. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                    A:

                    Hi! If you have acne prone skin, I would suggest using something oil free like Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Oil is one of the factors that causes acne, so using all oil free products is very important. All of our products are allergy test, fragrance free and non acnegenic. Thank you for your interest in Clinique and have a wonderful week!
