I first received the original version of this moisturizer over the past couple of years with other Clinique purchases and liked it ok. I have tried store brand moisturizers of many kinds and my face still would be dry in the morning. And as I age my face seemed to be getting more and more dry. I saw reviews of this new and improved version of their signature moisturizer and decided I would give it a try. It's fabulous! I don't wake up in the morning with the dry flakiness I had grown accustom to! My face is moist, not oily. It absorbs quickly without a filmy residue. Perfect for the middle aged woman in need of a serious moisturizer that works!
I have used Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (DDML) for a couple of decades, and I loved it.....so why change something that doesn't need changing? I have never had any complaints and/or concerns about the outcome of my skin using DDML, but sad to say that has changed. I tried the DDML+ for the first time, and I felt like I had used Vasoline instead of DDLM (in fact, that is why I started using DDLM in the first place several decades ago, for it didn't have the feel of a greasy product on my face). I will be buying, or in other words stocking-up, a couple of bottles of the original DDLM and hope that Clinique minuses the plus out of the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion by the time my last bottle is empty....so Clinique please minus the plus out of Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (or provide both products so Clinique loyal customers can choose the lotion that fits them best.)

This moisturizer has stuck with me through it all. When I go home to Puerto Rico I switch to the gel version since my skin becomes a lot more oily. When I'm in Oregon, which is most of the year, this is literally my best friend. I've never broken out and my face feels plump and supple once it absorbs the lotion. I have been on this for two years now and it is one of the absolute best products out there for combo to dry skin. I would recommend this to anyone (except people who are actively trying to avoid oils). It layers super nicely with other products and just makes my life so much easier!

My mother- in-law used Clinique products only. She was in her 80's and didn't have one wrinkle on her face. Not one!! I remembered that last week and ordered some last Friday. Used it and I look younger already. Will buy only Clinique products from now on.

This product is great! It goes on easily, a little goes a long way, and dries quickly! My skin looks and feels so much better!

I reeeeally wanted to like this but I just couldn't. It was too heavy feeling and balled up when layered on top of serums. If you have oily skin I don't think you would like this at all:/

Use 2X daily. A little goes along way. Love the no fragrance.
Steph from New Jersey
I love this moisturizer. However I went to the store and purchased it. When I came home and applied it, it had a musty smell. Like it was old and sat on the shelf or something to long. I know with Covid stores were closed but I will not check things at the store before purchasing them. I also will see if the store will exchange it.

I am not one to buy super expensive skin care just cause your girl is broke. I have always dealt with problematic skin and little bumps and I always felt like any moisturizer just clogged my pores. But let me tell y'all this moisturizer is so good I wish I was sponsored. It doesn't clog my pores and my skin is so hydrated and glowy. Try a sample or travel size and try it out. I personally think it's worth it. I use the cerave moisturizer too which is okay compared to this one because I have combo skin and also use acne cream therefore my skin is drier than normal but over all this moisturizer is chefs kiss.

I've been using this and their face wash for years. My skin gets extremely dry and this was the only thing I could find after trying everything. It makes my skin so soft and it doesn't feel heavy.

I was recommended this product by a Clinique sales person at a mall and have been using this moisturizer for about a year now. At first for a week or so it did sting my skin and made the dryness and flaking worse but after continuing usage it actually helped bring moisture to my face which I found suprising. However, as a person with dry skin it does the job but I think it's better suited for people with combo or normal skin as my mom loves it on her

I started on this moisturizer because it had raving reviews for dry skin. To be fair, I gave myself about 2 weeks to see how it would work on my skin and give an honest review. It does help with dry skin but it has a couple cons. First, I really hate the smell of it. I still used it even with the scent so it wasn't so offputting that I would not use it. Honestly, the smell is hard to describe. second, it leaves a weird white film. I'm not sure why it does this but when you apply it you really have to work it into the skin to get rid of the film. Overall, this moisturizer does work for dry skin but I didn't have any other benefits from it.

I have used this product for many years and won't use anything else to moisturize my face.
lia from illinois
i don't know what it was in the ingredients but the dramatically different moisturizing lotion+ left me with red and itchy skin along with small hives on the 2nd morning of using it, the next day i woke up with swollen eyes and even worse skin.

Dani from Virginia
