I would give it zero stars if I could

By Meg

from Milwaukee, Wi

Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream:

I had really high hopes for this product after reading good reviews from others saying they had dry and sensitive skin. Within 48 hours of applying this product, my face broke out in hives and I had large dry patches of skin - some of which I am still trying to get rid of over one month after I stopped using the product. I would not recommend this product to anyone, especially with sensitive or dry skin.

    Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream:

    I'm currently using a product called Retin A. It causes my skin to react very dry and flakey but this moisturizer absorbs so great into my skin, my dead skin seems to rub right off when I apply dramatically different at night. It's also a plus that the ingredients are save to use with my retin a. However it's not a sunscreen combination but it's fine because I got the chance to grab another great Clinique product the Even Better Lotion SPF 20 for my day time moisturizer.

          I've used Clinique all my life, so I was interested to try this. My skin has become really dry as I've gotten older, and the Dramatically Different lotion just wasn't cutting it anymore. This cream absorbs really fast & stays put - and has no odor or scent. I will buy again.

            I absolutely LOVE this product, may even be my new "holy grail" of moisturizer. I have a terribly time with year - round dry skin & this product I ordered in desperate need of a fix. Nothing less than impressed! the only thing I don't "love" is the pricing but i know that for the quality of this product, its worth every penny!

            By Dreamy__bookworm

            from Fairbanks, AK

            Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream:

            I normally use Clinique's moisture surge but I've been having breakouts so wanted to give this a try... it made my face SO OILY it was unbearable. I was so miserable I actually got out of bed at 4:30am just so I could re wash my face. I've never had a moisturizer make my skin feel as bad as this one did. It felt like I literally splashed oil on my face.

            I'll be returning. Not good!

              Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream:

              bought the Clinique three step in addition to the exfoliating scrub after I used samples for two weeks. I had high hopes for this product my face felt fabulous I liked the products very much, but on day 15 I came down with contact dermatitis and had to return the whole purchase. I have dry and very very sensitive skin I've never used skin care products on my face ever and I'm 57 years old. In my entire life I've had less than five pimples. In the past I've tried every now and then to adopt a skin care regime but it always ends like this. Because of Clinique' reputation for testing their products I thought this line of skincare would work for me.

              However of all the four products that I purchased this one in particular produce the greatest allergic reaction. I put them on one at a time one per day after I broke out to find out which product might be the Allergan. It was dramatic

                      A:

                      Hi! This product is very rich for a drier skin type. If you are acne prone, I suggest using something oil free, such as the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Neither of these products contain an spf. Depending on the degree of acne you are experiencing, Clinique also carry's an Acne Solution Clear Skin System that is designed to treat more persistent acne. It is designed for someone that suffers from constant acne, and has 3 or more breakouts at all times.
                      Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                      Yes, they are perfect partners! You can actually use both of these products during the day and night if it is the Repairwear Laser Focus Smooths, Restores and Corrects serum. The Dramatically Different Moisturizer will act as a sponge for your Repairwear Serem. Overall it will work more effectively for your skin.
