I have combination oily skin, and every moisturizer I've tried either doesn't moisturize enough, or gives too much moisture/leaves a greasy residue on my skin, forcing me to wait 20 mins to half an hour after application before I could prime/apply my makeup. For anyone questioning why I wait, you're supposed to wait between layers to let each one absorb thoroughly. Trust me, try it. This is lightweight, absorbs within a few minutes (if that) and gives the perfect balance of moisture and oil control, so my makeup looks beautiful for a good 8 hours now, whereas before it looked terrible after 3. It's also less expensive than my old moisturizer, has more product, a way better pump, and overnight I saw a decrease in pore size, general texture and oil production. My skin looks and feels plump and healthy for the first time!
I loved it! it's light, observed well, doesn't give you oily look, and the smell is very light. 3 stars because it does not long lasting on my skin.

I have oily skin most of the time, and this is the perfect moisturizer for me. It helps keep my skin hydrated all day. Even when my skin starts getting dry, this moisturizer still works for me! Highly recommend.

I've been using this moisturizer for about 10 years now, and I will never use anything else! Literally the best moisturizer, makes my skin look and feel amazing.

If you have oily/combination skin - don't believe the "for all skin types" marketing. Even with the smallest amount, my skin would still get oily. I do live in Miami, FL and humidity doesn't help, but I've been staying in my house due to covid19 and yet I still experience very oily skin. I also have sensitive skin and when I initially apply it, an uncomfortable redness starts instantly for the first 10min of wearing it. After maybe within an hour my skin begins to feel like it has a film over it which is annoying. Don't get me wrong, the product does help moisturize your skin and isn't terrible in any means, BUT if you're looking to avoid excess oil production by using this moisturizer, this won't benefit you. All skin is different, but it's important to find a moisturizer that wont cause more clogged pores through too much oil production. A little goes a long way.

I've used this moisturizer for over 5 years. I use in the morning and at night after I was my face. I have an oily t-zone and dry else where but Cliniques gel moisturizer never oily, doesn't clog my pores and it keeps my face moisturize and clear ♡

I really like this product.

This moisturizer is great for my sensitive, combination skin. It is moisturizing while also controlling my oily t-zone. I love the texture. My skin has been more dry than usual (and has been even before starting this product) from being out in the sun so much, so I'm thinking of trying the lotion or cream from this same line or adding a moisturizing mask a few nights a week.
Chey from Washington
I apply this product after I've washed and applied my toner to my skin. It feels like a gel. It leaves a very light layer on the skin. The layer isn't oily or heavy, just enough to keep the skin moisturized. It's my favorite moisturizer. It works well and it's the crazy expensive. I highly recommend trying this, it's my go to.

I have very problematic skin and this is the only moisturizer I can use.

I have been looking for a moisturizer for the longest time that doesn't feel too thick on my face and i finally found one! The cerave one was very thick for me and didn't work well with makeup, but this one is light enough but still leaves me feeling moisturized. It does not feel greasy at all.
Saniya from Chicago
I have acne prone skin and was looking for a moisturizer that wouldnt feel greasy or break me out. Unfortunately, this gel moisturizer made my skin 50 shades of red. My skin cleared up after I stopped using it, but left me with textured skin on my cheeks. The consistancy of this moisturizer is amazing, but I wish the ingredients didn't backfire on me like that.
Nicole from Houston, TX
Seriously, I swore by this moisturizer. Was my go to for YEARS... until my most recent purchase, I'm not sure if they switched some ingredients, but it started causing me to breakout. I knew it wasn't anything else, because nothing else in my routine was new. Try CeraVE, amazing!
Nina L from LA
At my age (46) I need a little extra help keeping my face moisturized. The gel lotion works great for me and feels so nice on my skin.
Victoria C from Brick, NJ
As a 28 year old, I figured it was time to start a skin care routine. After lots of research, I decided to get this for my moisturizer. A small dot on my finger tips, is enough to completely cover my face. It's been about 2 weeks and my pores are looking smaller and I feel more fresh faced! I use this twice a day- morning and evening.

This is definitely my favorite moisturizer! It does wonders for my combination skin!
Bri from Hammond, Indiana
This product is amazing for oily skin. A little goes a long way & it's SUPER lightweight. I sometimes forget I even put moisturizer on.
Madi from Logan, UT
I've repurchased this moisturizer multiple times and it's one of my favorites! It's great for people with more oily skin because it's more lightweight.
Amber from Southern California
This is my go to during the summer. I usually uses Philosophy purity moisturizer, but even that light weight moisturizer makes me sweat in Southern California heat. Clinique moisturizing gel is light but still gets the job done.
Sabrina from New York
When I was younger, I always strayed away from moisturizers (I know, dumb) because I had oily/combo skin and I thought it would make me greasier. After constantly seeing that even oily skin needs moisturizer, I tried to find a really good one. I tried a least 5 before this that either made my feel greasy and broke me out or made my skin flaky. When i first used this, it was like the best thing that's ever happened to me. It's perfect, the texture is light but still effective. It absorbs into the skin fast so you don't have that gross slimy feeling. I'm now 22 and my skin isn't as oily as it was before but this still hydrates my skin perfectly.

Go to moisturizer for my teen daughter, after trying many different brands.

Good oil control. Not oily at all
Elliebabie from Central Cali
This is my go-to! I love everything about it. It's very light weight. Doesn't leave your face feeling dry or oily. A little goes a long way. The scent is very clean and it last a long time!
I think the different between the gel & the lotion is that the gel is meant for ppl with more of a dry skin! Correct me if I'm wrong.
Definitely recommend 👍🏼
Micky from Modesto Ca
I have combo skin but I only get a bit oily when i have a full face of makeup on sooo this product is like my middle ground. It feels good and not heavy at all!
