      Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+:

      I bought this after consulting with a Clinique "specialist". I do not find this moisturizer very moisturizing. It just sits on top of my skin and does not absorb very well. I have been using it for 3 months just to be fair. I will not be buying this again. I bought this as the 3-step cleansing system.

          I am diabetic and have hypothyroidism so my skin is seriously dry and I have tried just about every drug store moisturizer out there failing time and again. I picked this up as a sample size and the first time I used it I couldn't believe it! My skin didn't feel like it was moisturized on the surface and dry and brittle underneath. I am going back to Ulta to get the bigger size. Thank you Clinque for saving my skin!

                          Hi! The best thing I can suggest for flaky skin is daily exfoliation before moisturizing. This will help to remove the dry flaky dead skin on the surface. I suggest something like Clinique's Clarifying Lotion or Clinique's 7 day scrub cream. These are both nice options for your skin.
                          When choosing a moisturizer to use after your exfoliating agent, choose a formula that matches your skins need for oil. If your skin feels tight and uncomfortable, Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + will be a nice option for you. If it feels comfortable, or you notice a shine on the skin during the day, you should use the oil free Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.
                          Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                          Hi! Thank you for reaching out. You can absolutely exchange this product. It is a priority to Ulta and Clinique that you have the right product for your skin. I suggest using an oil free product if you are acne prone. You will want to exchange this for Clinique's Oil Free version, which is called Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. If you are also experiencing patchy areas of the skin, I suggest partnering it with a daily exfoliator. You may want to also try Clinique's Clarifying Lotion, which is a liquid exfoliator that can be used twice a day. Have a wonderful week!

                        Will this product clog my pores? My skin is scaly and incredibly dry, but I am also acne prone. The dramatically different moisturizing gel is too dry for me and doesn't offer enough hydration though? I am acne prone, but since this contains mineral oil will this clog my pores? I can't use the gel formula because I feel it isn't enough hydration for my skin

                          Hi! Thanks for reaching out. If you are acne prone, I wouldn't suggest using anything with oil on the skin. In looking at the word that you use, scaly, I believe you may have a need for more exfoliation. This could help with your acne as well as how the skin feels topically. I am noting a few products below that you may want to try in order to achieve your skin goals.
                          Clinique's Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer
                          Clinique's Moisture Surge family of products
                          Clinique Clarifying Lotion would be a great partner with any of the above moisturizers.
                          Thank you for your question and and I look forward to hearing about your results.

                        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

                          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!

                          Hi! Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion originally launched with Clinique in 1968, but this being an Ulta site, we do not have information concerning other retailers. I apologize. Thank you and have a great week.

                        Would this work for someone with "normal" skin? My skin isn't really oily or dry.

                          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!
