Most Helpful Positive Review better than even ddml for intense dry skin
I have been using the dramatically different moisturizing lotion for years and it is great but this is awesome for my skin I have severe eczema which get so dry that it breaks and splits open so the dramatically different moisturizing lotion was great but I did always have to layer the moisture start intense on top of it I think that I may be able to use this cream all alone. Awesome product.
Most Helpful Critical Review Flakes under some foundations
I've used the dramatically different moisturizing lotion for years and recently switched to the cream. I've used it multiple times around the house, and it definitely felt like my face was hydrated all day. However, I recently used it under my foundation (Bare Minerals Bare Skin liquid foundation), and when I was using a brush to apply my foundation, the makeup started to flake off. I repeated the process with the dramatically different lotion, and there were no flakes. I have not tried the cream under other brands of foundation to see if the problem persists.

I love this moisturizer. I have extremely sensitive dry skin - psoriasis, eczema and seborrheic dermatitis so if one isn't acting up you can guarantee another is. My skin also acclimates to new products fairly quickly so they usually stop working within a few weeks so I'm always having to change it up. So far it's been about 2 months and the Clinique products I've been using along with hyaluronic acid have been working wonders. The peeling around my forehead and eyes has gone down noticeably.
Broke me out and quite greasy...plus, jar packaging :(
Ali from CALIFORNIA
My search for a moisturizer continues. I have combination skin and this made my face super greasy/oily, I would only recommend for nighttime. It also broke me out the next morning pretty bad. Lastly, jar packaging is always a negative because it introduces bacteria in to the jar every time you reach for it. The only pro was that it was definitely moisturizing. Bummed this did not work out for me.
easy to use

I love the three-step line for my acne-prone skin (I've been using No. 3) but sometimes the moisturizing gel isn't moisturizing enough for me, especially in the winter. I grabbed this to try in the evenings after removing my makeup and it's fantastic - highly moisturizing without being heavy. It also soaks in nicely so it doesn't feel like it's just sitting on your face.

I normally use the DDML+ but once in a while my skin just feels to dry so I add a dab of this fantastic DDM cream. I apply the DDML first and then add the cream on top of it wherever my skin feels dry. It takes care of my dry spots. Unfortunately they have added dimethicone to this cream which just sits on the skin and mostly makes my skin break out. That is why I can not use this too much. I wish they would have kept the mineral oil as an ingredient instead of dimethicone which supposedly holds the moisture in but I need something that adds moisture to the skin.

This stuff is amazing! I was struggling with very dry skin on my face and all my usual products weren't helping. I was waking up with red and flaky skin on my face every morning. I did some research and came across this cream. I was hesitant to try something new because I have sensitive skin and will break out easily. This cream has not caused any breakouts and it helped immediately. I have also noticed a huge reduction in the visibility of my fine lines. I am in love!

Great moisturizer for dry skin!
Mouse from Oregon
I absolutely love this product! It hydrates and makes my face feel so smooth and soft. I've been using this DDM cream for a couple weeks now and it has not caused any breakouts or clogged my pores. If your looking for a good moisturizer this one is it!
Now that I'm a "grownup!"
MsLaurel from Claremont, CA
I've used Dramatically Different Moisturizer for over thirty years. Last year I discovered the (maybe new?) cream version. I LOVE IT!!! Now that I'm closer to 60, it feels better on my now-drier skin. I use it at night with a serum, and my skin feels soft and silky. Thanks Clinique. I love you.
Great Moisturizing Cream

I use this every night before bedtime. It makes my extremely dry skin so soft and full of moisture.
WOW Best Cream Ever!!
Mrs A Smith from La Verne
I LOVE this cream, highly recommend for dry to very skin, price point is awesome. I couldn't afford my expensive face cream and found this treasure and I am astounded with the level of hydration. My mom, 70+ years young and sister now use it once a day, no night cream needed. Keeps skin moisturized and dewy long after initial application. Run, don't walk, to purchase this moisturizer.
ClearWaves from Washington DC
The cream is thick, which is great for my dry skin. I have sensitive skin and patch tested it - no issues However, within a minute of applying it to my face my cheeks and nose started to sting. I use other Clinique products like the cleanser, take the day off balm and 72 hour moisture surge and have had no problems. But this? Ouch.
Returning it would mean a visit to the post office, which is obviously not really something I want to be doing, so 🤷
If you have sensitive skin - use caution.
Mom with big bags from Poplar bluff mo
I have dry, sensitive, red, fair skin. Got this because I didn't feel like the moisture surge was hydrating enough on it's own. (Gel creams don't work for me).
It's thick. It's shiny. My skin loves it. Especially at night after a full day of full coverage makeup.
Ah moisture bliss!

I thought the cream would be heavier than it would be and best to use at night. However, it is not heavy at all and provides great moisture during the day! Love it!

I have sensitive dry skin and this moisturizer helps keep my face moisturize without breaking my skin out. I love this product!
Absolutely love it
Miriam from New York
I use it daily, before applying make-up and in the evening after cleaning. Absolutely love it how it feels on my skin. I have extremely dry skin as I'm getting older and it has not been easy to find a cream that fits well. Fortunately, I came back to Clinique and it's perfect fit.

skin gets shine

Very good product for dry skin. Skin will become shine
Please don't discontinue this product
Mel C from Sacramento, Ca
I used this product a handful of years ago and wasn't as impressed but my skin reacts differently now at 40. This is perfect, not too heavy just creamy moisturizing hydration and not sticky. I used to use their Moisture Surge products which are really great too but slightly sticky. I am so glad I am came back to this. My skin looks dewy not sweaty greasy but I can see how this may be a little too much if you just have oily skin.

I love this product. Very rich moisturizing cream and good price. Highly recommend !
dani from Bedford, tx
I have always bought just regular face creams, and I'm over 40 now. I can tell you that it felt like my skin was hydrated from the moment I put it on. it feels so good on your skin. I have combination oily skin, and this was not too much at all. A little goes a long way. I love it. there's a reason it's been around forever.
