    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

            My skin is VERY oily in the summer months. When winter comes, I get so dry around my nose and chin to the point where my skin flakes, gets very red and tender. This moisturizer has helped balance my skin out and it's AMAZING! My oily t-zone is balanced out to a healthier level of oil, and my dry skin is moisturized well and not flakey anymore. I love this product!

              I've been using this with the mild facial cleanser and I love the way my skin feels. I'm very oily in the T zone, but I also have areas of extreme dryness (flaking and itching). Not anymore! My skin is silky smooth, has a more even tone and feels great. I cannot recommend this product enough.

                I had received the foaming cleanser at first and when I went to Ulta to repurchase the sales representative recommended I try this based off of my skin type and preference over the lotion. I purchased a travel size, not knowing if I'd like it or not; honestly didn't want to waste my time and money. But I LOVED it! I use it every morning and night and it keeps my skin and neck moisturized and silky smooth. I don't see an end of me purchasing this at all!
