I use it every day, it makes my skin smooth and soft.

I have used the Hydrating Lotion version before, and quite liked it. I tried out the Jelly version this time around and ended up returning it. It felt slick and not very moisturizing, and had a sticky feeling even once dry. Not for me.

If you're looking for a sheer BB Cream, this is not it. However, I love this as an alternative to foundation. It's not as heavy as foundation, not greasy like a lot of bb creams, but definitely not as light as a regular moisturizer. It evens my skin tone, calms my redness, and matches my shade when I'm fair in the winter and when I'm tan in the summer. I like that it's inherently lighter than a normal foundation, and it's more moisturizing and provides skincare all in one step. And since I don't need to add a primer underneath, it simplifies my morning makeup routine. I wouldn't use it as a "hanging out at home" moisturizer though, because like I said above, it does provide some actual coverage, and is not quite as light as a plain moisturizer would be.
Just the Change I Needed

I switch my face wash & moisturizer combo with the seasons, a super lightweight one in the summer to prevent oiliness, and a more intense one in the dryness of winter to keep my skin hydrated. Sometimes even before the season changes, it seems my face stops responding well to the one I've been using, so I change it up a little early. Such was the case in April when my IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream always left my face a little flushed even at night. I picked this Clinique Dramatically Different Jelly because I had a sample of it last summer and I really liked it. I added the green irritation relief tube because I was presently dealing with redness (I guess that's usually my biggest skin woe, lets be real). I also picked up The Ordinary glycolic toner, and the Clinique normal-to-oily gentle face wash.
Nightly I use the face wash, alternate the glycolic toner and a simple witch hazel toner, then the jelly moisturizer, and finally the IT Cosmetics Confidence in an Eye Cream (that still works wonders).
In the morning, it's the Clinique face wash, the witch hazel toner, and the jelly moisturizer, or a Neutrogena oil-free SPF 35 moisturizer if I know I'll be going outside. Working from home during shelter-in-place I've been pretty lax on the SPF because there are days when I hardly step outside at all, but as things loosen up in my area and socially, I'll no doubt be more diligent about the SPF as I ride a motorcycle and there is nothing worse than an unevenly tanned/burned face from wearing a helmet and no sunscreen!

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.
Already knew and liked the product

wanted to love it, but

Just didn't work for me. My skin does not feel hydrated at all, my pores are huge, etc. I'd get my back if I could, but the stores are closed.
Definitely adding this to my skincare routine

I use this makeup under my makeup or just during the day if I'm not wearing any makeup.
JLW from IL
I use this product in the morning to moisturize before adding my powder makeup. I've been using this for over a year now and I love it! It's a great product.
