Most Helpful Positive Review So far, so good!
After seeing all the rave about this product, I decided to try it out. I'm one who HATES wearing making to my 9-5 so I was looking for something to give me a glow without having to apply my foundation and so far this is it! I love the way it feels on my face, it's super lightweight. It feels like a moisturizer, but I wouldn't bank on it actually being effective to moisturize as I apply my moisturizers before this product. It is definitely not for fair skin as there is an orange undertone when applied. I'm at my winter palest, So I was a little worried, but I have naturally warmer skin so this product didn't look too drastic on my face. For applying, I use my hands to get the product all over my face and then I do go in with a buffing brush/damp beauty blender just to ensure there's no splotchiness while applying and that has seem to do the trick! I've only been using for a few days, so I'll check back if my skin reacts adversely to this product before calling it a holy grail, but I hope after a week I will be back saying it is!
Most Helpful Critical Review Oxidizing is real
I received this product with the evening insert as a sample and used it for 3 days. I loved it so much I bought the large bb cream and cassette despite others reviews about color changing/oxidizing issues. I've been using it a month now. It was great at first, then i did start having problems with color changing. I thought maybe it was because I put it on before drying my hair. Putting it on helped a little but I'm still a little more orange by the end of the day. I even tried the bb cream without the cartridge with no benefit. The sample also did a great job of matching my light skin tone and adding a glow. I still get the flow but it starts a little darker from the beginning of the day. It also says it helps with oil. My nose and forehead get so much more oily when I use this! Also not a problem I had won the sample. However, I did change to a Clinique cleanser and moisturizer that may be adding to the oil. I was so ready to recommend this to my mom and sister but not anymore. Overall, a little disappointed given the price and amount of product I'm left with.

I love this stuff. It gives the perfect color without being orange and it's so light.
PS-You have to mix it in your hand before applying so it doesn't come out orange on your face.
Works great for me

Use over my SPF for quick finish no makeup days. Evens out skin and moisturizes at same
Scarlet from Mission
Absorbs into the skin leaving it smooth, not dewy looking. No smell.
Not worth it
a from Minnesota
Didn't match my skin tone at all. Might be nice if you self tan and want your skin to have that slight orange tint. I also found it looked AWFUL on my skin and made any skin texture look even worse. As someone already struggling with acne and skin texture, this was a huge no. I also found it either dried out my drier patches, yet made my oily t-zone even oilier. Would not recommend this product. One size does not fit all!
Ammy from Dc
After my favorite tinted moisturiser was discontinued I wanted something that felt equally lightweight and easy to use, with little transfer since I wear masks all day. This matches my skin tone well and adds to my complexion, doesn't cover hyperpigmentation which I didn't expect it to. The only issue is this pilling I get which I am unsure why but it definitely increases w any sort of rubbing or friction against the face. The gel doesn't seem to soak in like moisture surge rather remain a gel over the skin. It reminds me of school glue If that makes sense
Literally Orange on Fair Skin!!
Alli from Reno
I bought this product with the hopes it would at least do something good for me. I was completely wrong. Its just a cool science experiment. It's grey In the bottle, and once you start rubbing into skin it "transforms" into a orangeish pigment I think Clinique is trying to pass off as universal. Literally they show three shades on the bottle and I think it just goes to the middle orange one. Doesn't last long either, isn't transfer proof and not moisturizing? Come on Clinique, I know you can do better.
Lu from Ocala FL
This product is just what I was looking for. I wanted a tented moisturizer that gave a little coverage and that's exactly what this product does.
This is a must if you self tan
Mama Llama from Spokane, WA
I use this to make my face match my self tanned body when I'm not wearing makeup. Doesn't feel like makeup and is super fuss free which is why it's perfect for this. So lightweight and feels so good. Makes me not want to wear makeup. I feel so confident with just this, some eyelashes and lip gloss. Perfect for summer. Doesn't slide around or break up either. Warm it up in your hands before applying. Can build up slightly in small layers. Caveat; I do not think this would suit my skin tone when I am not self tanning. I am medium skin tone with tanning and fair/light when not tanning.
Always great! Clinique is bottom-line best!
Maryspectra13 from Raleigh, NC
This is my favorite Clinique moisturizer in the ID collection! I love how light it is, but it still gives moisture! I wear it daily under my Clinique sunscreen and then makeup. You can't go wrong with Clinique!
I LOVE this product
Han Solo from WA
If you're thinking about buying this for summer do it! I fell in love with it as soon as I used it. I don't recommend wearing it if you have pale skin or in the winter but it has a beautiful color and is super lightweight, I love the way it makes my skin look so flawless.
If you follow the instructions you will like this product
Jes from Belfast, ME
Like another review stated you HAVE to follow the instructions (downside, you have to come to product page to see them as they aren't on the bottle - so small fail on their part). You MUST put a small amount on your fingers and rub it until the color changes, and it will change. Once the color changes you can apply to your face and blend it in. This item does not come out blotchy, blends well, and matches as long as you follow the directions. I also use a serum before applying any other moisturizer or products, so that might help smooth it out as well. My face looks natural and smooth when wearing it. I really like this product so far, but remember FOLLOW THE APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS!
Blend between your fingers first!
Vintage chic lady from Okc ok
If u review this product WITHOUT following the instructions then you probably hate it. U MUST blend between fingers till it almost gets tacky "like Mac face and body" then apply to skin. Once on your face blend until it turns to a more powdery feel. Take your time with this, it's a gem! But u MUST do it this way or it won't blend and it will be blotchy and you will hate it. But I love it and I top it with Maybelline age rewind then a powder. Looks like perfected skin NOT makeup.
I would definitely buy this product again
Jasmine from San Diego
Great light weight product. It has a lotion texture to it but oxidizes to your skin tone leaving a nice flawless texture to it.
Grandma72 from New Mexico
Me,my daughter and grand daughter had the same results. Each of us has a different skin tone. What a joke!
Kinz from Va
Not impressed. Didn't fit my skin tone at all. All it did was irritate my skin.
Ulta Clinique Order
Kim from Colorado
I love Clinique. Ulta online ordering is below par for sure.
Too dark for my fair skin
Rae from WA
This product gives the perfect amount of very sheer coverage and slight glow, but is too dark for my extremely pale skin. Easy to use and would probably blend in ok if i had a good tan.
I would most definitely recommend this product and buy it ag

Great price pt
This is the first time I try this product. Totally satisfied

I use this daily when I need some color
pllsca from Modesto
This BB gel is perfect for people who wear little to no makeup or the ones that want a natural look. I used to wear heavy foundations and have decided to take a break for about a month and cleared my skin up. This item was perfect for me
Excellent just use it CORRECTLY
Victoria from Okc
For the ppl who don't like it, your likely NOT applying it correctly. Squirt it on your finger and mix it very well BEFORE applying it to your face. Make sure you have gotten the encapsulated capsules smoothed out. Then once you apply it to your skin it blends right in and your don't get a strange color tone. This product is all about application. It's so beautiful on an every day basic!
Great Product to Have!
Anonymus from Virginia
Love how light it is and how great it evens out my skin tone. My mom tried it too and she thinks it is a great everyday go to for a natural look.
I just bought my second tube of this!
Shoe Queen from Omaha, NE
This tinted moisturizer has quickly become my quarantine staple in my daily makeup routine, and I'm sure I will continue to use it daily when I am back in the office. I didn't want to put a lot of effort into wearing makeup for Zoom meetings, but I wanted something to make me feel a bit more put together. This is great! Smooth it all over your face after your morning shower, add some mascara and you are ready to face the camera and your colleagues! The only drawback is that it does not provide enough moisture for dry spots, so it's great for daily quick needs, but make sure you put on some good quality moisturizer at night after you wash your face.
Stephit2000 from Newcastle, OK
Love this. Got the moisturizer for my daughter it has been a great light foundation and love the color tone it provides.

Apply with foundation creating a smooth refreshing glow. Not oily nor heavy. Foundation never looked more smooth and natural.
