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 so I've been using this one for a few years. THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WITH OILY SKIN. That's why the consistency is thin and it dries you down some. I also put it on when my face is damp for better results. I have a different moisturizer for nighttime/cold weather when I need a bit more but heavier creams tend to break me out.

This is wonderful moisturizer. There is no scent and I use it everyday before foundation and my other makeup. Really helps makeup go on and stay fresh and not settle in fine lines.

I have extremely oily skin and hate using moistures, but this moisture is awesome for oily skin

I love, love, love this gel moisturizer! The gel formula is a dream for my sensitive, acne (of all kinds) combination skin type. I purchased the 3 Step Skincare System for my teenage daughter and I to try out together. We loved all three products! This gel is great for both AM and PM use. It wears very well underneath makeup. It never feels heavy or like it's just sitting on top of the skin. It glides on smoothly and sinks right in. It dries down nicely and doesn't leave the skin looking shiny, feeling tacky or accentuate the texture of the rolling scars on my cheeks. It evens out my skin tone, is lightweight and manages to hydrate beautifully. My daughter likes it because it spreads on easily and sinks right in. This gel is really great for those who hate the feeling of a face moisturizer on their skin. Just Purchased the jumbo size for us!
NOTE: I have also tried the DD moisturizing lotion formula and it wasn't for my skin type at all. It just sat on top of my skin feeling heavy and oily and made my skin look a bit ruddy. If this is you, then give the gel formula a try!
NOTE 2: I have the DD Cream formula and I have found that it is great for PM use when I need something a little thicker than the gel as long as I wash it off first thing in the AM. It goes on smoothly and has a lightweight velvet like finish, but delivers a rich hydration.
NOTE 3: I have tried other gel moisturizers and the Clinique DD Gel formula is superior to them all in my opinion!

I use this product twice everyday. It lasts me about 2 months and is something I will continue buying. Love Clinique for my acne prone skin! Although when mixed with the Clinique foundation it tends to make the foundation crumble off...

I have very, very, very oily skin. This did not fix that and dried me out besides.
J from FL
I have super dry, sensitive skin and had a hard time finding a moisturizer that I am not allergic to. I thought I tried everything, including most of the other clinique products, but everything I tried made my face look like I had varying degrees of sunburn. By chance, I got this as a free sample a few years ago and never looked back. Since then, my acne and rosacea almost completely went away. I really hope they never discontinue this. I don't know what I would do if they did.

Moisture is great
Amanda from Long Beach
I bought the gel instead of the lotion because the lotion was sold out. It just feels wet and runny when I applied it, it dried quickly but my face felt too dry.
Lex from Idaho
I love this product. My skin in oily and blemish prone, however if any oil is stripped my face peels. This moisturizer is the perfect balance. The only cons I could possibly think of is that I wish it was cheaper and it's not all natural.
Whit from Asheville
I have fairly oily skin, more so in warmer weather of course, and this moisturizer never fails to provide the perfect canvas for my makeup routine!!

Best purchase ever
Rachel from Vero Beach, Florida
I love this moisturizer so much. I have dry skin, and I know it's more for oily skin but, I love the gel texture, it's not sticky, it's perfect. Gives you such great hydration for the face. Instead of touching up your makeup with a pressed powder through out the day, I take a little of the moisturizer and apply over my makeup and it's like a drink of water to the face, and I love my water.
Diana from Bolingbrook
Love that it is supper hydrating
Grandma G from Illinois
I have oily skin and this lotion feels good when putting on.
Alexandra from Chicago
I adore this product so much. I have combination oily skin and other moisturizers either left my skin feeling sticky or were so heavy I felt like I was sweating them off (even in winter- ew scarf moisture). Clinique products work for my skin and I swear by them- I just beed a couple pumps and it goes on light but fully covers and moisturizes without any gross side effects.
Read the other reviews and make sure this is the product for your skin type- it definitely works well for us combination-oily folks and not so much for others.
Anita from Texas
I've tried a few and they would make me break out but not this one. Also not super oily.
Heathmarie from Winston Salem
As someone who suffers severe combo skin, I'm either painfully dry or overly oily, this has always been the best middle man in both scenarios. This is light weight enough to wear underneath makeup, has never caused acne, doesn't clog pores and absorbs well. Perfect day time lotion, at night I use the moisture surge and this together. Even after chemical peels, this has worked even though my skin still seemed dry, it nursed it back to life without clogging my skin along the way like most heavy creams. I always stray away to try new stuff but end up right back. If you have combo this is a great day lotion. You will need the LOTION version or moisture surge at night. Best lotion around.
Deja from Florida
For those who say it does nothing for dry skin, this particular formula is for combination/oily skin. The CREAM of formulated for dry skin. But this works wonders for my oily skin!
Nina from Washington
This is an absolute must have for me, it always keeps my skin plump & moisturized!
A from Chicago
If you have particularly dry areas to your skin this may not be enough moisture, but I have enjoyed it for my combination skin. Have to use a second moisturizer for the days I'm a little more dry.
Kat from Atlanta, GA
Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel offered no hydration and caused an itchy, red rash on my forehead after one application. Disappointing given the great reviews this gel has received.
Jenni from Utah
My face is seriously the softest it's ever been! I feel like I have baby smooth skin. You don't need a lot either on pump and that's all you need. I will definitely buy again no doubt about it it's worth every penny!
Oscarmikk from Minneapolis
My face has become very sensitive and Clinique never lets me down!!!
SuzyQ from Harbor Springs, MI
I use this as a morning moisturizer before apply my foundation.
