Most Helpful Positive Review I hope they never stop selling this
So my mom and I were planning on stopping into Ulta to try this after seeing it in the app. We both have totally different skin types and tones, but this was amazing for both of us. We immediately felt the difference after applying.
I especially like that you can personaliz this product by selecting a cartridge that applies to what your looking to try! I purchased the jelly vs the lotion 1.) Because it was a new concept. 2.) because this is what I tested in store and fell in looooove.
I purchased the blue cartridge for pores and tone. I experience some hormonal acne that comes at specific times of the month and other times I am super dry and notice it especially around my mouth.
I have used this product once daily in the morning after a shower and when my face is clean. I do not even need to reapply as the day goes on. This product is a little spendy, but the wear of it and the amount needed makes up for that.
I called my mom a couple days after and told her I couldn't believe the difference it had made in such a short time.
Best advice, stop in and try it. You will love it! Ask for samples too (; I have a couple other serums to try in this line and I can't wait to see more results!
PS. Always apply with clean hands!
Most Helpful Critical Review Don't Purchase!
Just like everyone else, I saw this product all over tiktok and had to see what the hype was about. I read plenty of both negative and positive reviews, so I decided to give it a try to myself. Man, was I disappointed. I will never purchase this product EVER again. Actually, I cannot wait until the Ulta near me opens back up, so I can return it and put that money towards a decent face product. First of all, it is a total rip off that you need to buy not only this, but the pump with the primer of your choice. I was so excited to try this out, and once it failed the first time, I tried so hard to make it work. The first time I put it on, I used my hands (which I never do) and thought it looked great. UNTIL I looked in the mirror about 20 mins later. It legitametly looked like someone had smudged dirt on my cheeks. It was so streaky and patchy. It was not evenly balanced what so ever. If you are going to make a moisturized, please do not ever make one like this ever again. I then again tried using a beauty blender to apply it, by putting it directly on the beauty blender. Nope, no color. Then I decided to put it on my hand, rub it in a little and apply it with a beauty blender. NOPE. It was so grainy and dried so streaky, that I had to re-wet my beauty blender and basically smudge it off of my face. I cannot wait to get my money back. Such a terrible product and I had such high hopes and tried so many different ways to make it work.

Tried this and it did not adapt to my skin tone at all. It was orange and extremely patchy. Awful.
Yes I will

It absorbs on my skin fast and I have oily skin and it is PERFECT.
Yes all of them are great

I've never found a better moisturizer.
I absolutely LOVE this cream!
LTHOMAS from ohio
I am not one to wear makeup every day, but I absolutely love the Clinique products, and this cream will forever be my favorite!
Have used Clinique for years.
Mimi from Tennessee
Great products for aging skin
It's like magic !
Peekok from Oklahoma
I absolutely love this product, since using Clinique products I do not need a full cover foundation and even though this is a BB cream to wear under your foundation, I prefer using AS my foundation!
Amazing, glowy skin!
seas13 from Nags Head
I bought the "uneven skin tone" active cartridge to go in it. This is one of the first few Clinique products I've ever bought (all in my new routine) and I am BEYOND impressed!!! Pump some onto your fingers and rub for a few seconds to activate the bb cream so it doesn't go on streaky, and it looks amazing. My skin looks so healthy and radiant throughout the day. The only problem is that I've only just discovered this product and now I have to wear a mask everywhere anyway, and I don't want to get tinted moisturizer on the inside...
Regret this purchase
Mia from Redmond WA
I am really regretting buying this. It made my skin look like a peach and it's not flattering whatsoever. The application is not even no matter how careful and thorough you are.
Left my skin feeling tight
Liz from Virginia
I like that this is a customizable system. I use a light weight moisturizer during the summer when it's hot and humid. However, this base left my face feeling tight and dry.
I would definitely buy this product again!!!
Saraa from Philadelphia PA
I bought this after purchasing the uneven skin cartridge (Blue) this has been my night routine for over a week and it already has made such a big difference.my skin is a lot clearer,all one tone instead of red and irritated in some areas! Absolutely love it!!💖
I love it!!!
Twinmomma from Akron, OH
Gives me light coverage for a natural appearance.
The BB gel formula is terrific!
Naturalist from Iowa
I wanted a moisturizer that would add just a bit of color as I don't wear foundation. This is fabulous! I feel like my skin just has a bit of glow to it with this.
Yes! Good product!
MJ from Chicago
Wish it had sunscreen.

Works very well for mature skin.
My new favorite BB gel!
BooKiya from Maryland
I am a 42 yr old mom of 4 and I've used countless products. I have oily blemish prone but sensitive skin. I am more into skincare than makeup and I really like using products with additional benefits. This fits the bill. I put it on like I would any other moisturizer but I pay extra attention to blending completely in areas like my jawline and nose. It blends in beautifully with my golden skin tone and does not cause any irritation or breakouts. I use this just about every morning and it makes my skin look more awake and even without being oily or sticky at all.
actually really nice
andrea from buffalo
i was putting this on with my hands and it turned a gross orange color, but when i tried it with a brush it was PERFECT. i self tan so it matched up my face perfectly
Catbird from Wilmington, NC
This is a great BB cream to use either one it's one or with a Clinique serum. Make sure to rub the cream between your fingers before applying to your face, this "activates" the color, as it's a gray color in the bottle but will match your skin tone with application. I have Rosacea and sensitive skin and this doesn't aggravate my skin. My skin is dry and this is nice and moisturizing without making me look oily or greasy, it actually has a nice even matte finish.
EllieBabie from Central California
I love the Clinique collection. The regular gel is my go-to so I decided to give this a try. It's not my favorite but I don't hate it. It does have a slight tint to it which is on the darker side. Would recommend to try first if you have fair skin. It's definitely light weight & could be used alone but minimal to no coverage as a BB cream.
Love this product and I'm fair complexion
D from Miami, Florida
Perfect daily coverage for an on the go mom of 3. No need for foundation or concealer. Just do your step 3 add some tinted city lock and go! Love this product!!!!!!!
Kay from AZ
Love the product! I used the BB Gel with the for Irritation cartridge. In the past I haven't been impressed with Clinique products, but this combo delivers a beautiful sheer but completely natural hint of color with no irritation, and it's even layer-able with other products! I've forgotten I have it on and even gone swimming and been just fine! And personally I love that the product is good for a good two years from opening - nice for people who won't be using this every day! I am so sick of throwing away skincare for expiring after a paltry six months!
My one problem is the cartridge is so delicate. The first one I received didn't work at all, so I had to wait for a replacement. And I admit it's pricey - I'll only buy this on sale.
For reference, I have light-medium combination skin. I wouldn't recommend this to people with very light or very dark skin.
I was expecting too much.
Kj from Monroe LA
I was expecting so much from this product. I purchased it to use everyday for light coverage and figured it would be perfect for the summer. Boy was I wrong. It didn't blend out, clung to dry patches, didn't match my skin tone, was streaky, the list goes on and on. I plan on returning as soon as the stores open up again.
My Go To
Sarajane from Philadelphia
I originally started with the dramatically different oil free moisturizer on it's own. In December I tried it with the blue insert. It never failed in making my skin look even and stay matte without being tight! I now have the blue insert in the dd oil free with bb. I LOVE IT! I love the way my skin looks and feels! For an everyday on the go looks it's perfect coverage. It can easily be worn over primer and can be built on with foundation for extra coverage! It just feels like the best my skin has been since I was a kid!
I will continue to use this product again and again.
Lisa from Cincinnati, Ohio
Just started using this product after trying a sample. Gives your face added color and glow especially in the winter months when my skin looked dull and drab.
I love this product alone but not with an ID cartridge
Jackie from Conroe, Tx
I love this product without the ID cartridge. Its great for a minimal make up day with a dewy finish and honestly I sometimes wear it as my foundation and just use a finishing powder on top and it gives me a sheer to light coverage with a dewy but lightweight finish. Its not for heavy coverage. I honestly feel like I'm wearing nothing when I have it on. Its definitely my go to in Texas heat.
