      Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

      I started with super oily, out of balance skin so I used the Clinique for Men Oil Mattifying Moisturizer. As I got my skin more in balance, I needed more moisture. So I tried the dramatically different gel and I really do love it. It's weightless. It does not last a super long time though.

        Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

        I was hesitant to buy this, being someone who rarely pays more than ten bucks for any one makeup item, but I'm so glad I decided to dish out the cash in this case. This moisturizer is exactly what my oily skin needs. It feels soft and smooth and sinks right into my skin, leaving a dry but soft feeling afterwards without making me greasy or dried out. It makes my skin silky and lessens the amount of oils it produces which is great because I used to wake up to a face you could deep fry on. Makeup sits well on top of it too, since it doesn't really remain on top of my skin but absorbs right away.

        I would definitely purchase again, even at this price.

          definetly a go-to for me as i have oily-combo with dry patches around my mouth and upper eye area. absorbs in very quickly and i been using this ever since it was first released. i strayed away for a couple years trying other things with only one thing i like better (sunday riley's Tidal) but its pretty costly. this fits my budget and i know i can always depend on it
