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.)

I use this product right after cleanser, toner, and serum at night. It leaves me feeling very hydrated. In the morning I do the same with the exception of the serum, which keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day, but not greasy or oily.

I was very surprised with this hydrating jelly! I never expected it to feel so fresh. I was hesitant considering all the reviews but I thought I would try it anyway. Let me tell you I am not disappointed!

I have normal to dry skin. I was dealing with really dry skin in my tzone, ive been using this the past month and its helped significantly with my dryness. Only downfall for me is it says fragrance free but when I first put it on it has a weird smell, luckily that does go away quickly. definitely would buy again for the winter months.

I had switched a couple years ago to a more expensive brand. I just got bored basically and wanted to try other things out. I was in my local store after Thanksgiving, saw a travel size of the hydrating jelly, and snagged it to give it a try. Needless to say, I am now back to Clinique. I have oily skin and the hydrating jelly works great for me. I am ALOT less oily in the evenings. I suppose the grass isn't always greener on the other side after all! Guess I'm a Clinique lifer!

I use it every morning after I wash my face. Feels refreshing.

I use this with the green cartilage (Aloe?) based off the discription of the two and what it was I needed. They go well together and help tame down the natural red/pink in my cheeks as my skin is sensitive. It gives a good fresh moisture feeling to your skin, but due to my skin being complex, and the season, I sometimes add an additional moisture (Burt's Bees) on top to feel amazing!

I live in a dry area and i have super dry skin so its perfect. I hate the feeling of products, so its perfect that I don't notice it on. Use a primer or wait time before applying base makeup if you use it, it can get slippery if not.
Jojo from Palatine, IL
This was purchased for my husband. He has been using the M lotion for more than 15 years but switched to this about 8 years ago because you can get a larger size. My husband swears by it.
Lindsay from Pennsylvania
I have been using this moisturizer daily for YEARS and it is the best I've ever tried. I have normally dry skin and this is always my saving grace. Sometimes in the winter I do need something stronger but this is perfect for every day

I do not like the smell of this product. Please make it lighter with a nicer smell
Sierra from TN
I use to use this faithfully until I started breaking out. I realized it was the mineral oil that they put in it. As soon as I stopped using the lotion my face cleared up. Lotion is priced pretty high and it's a high end brand so I'm not sure why they still use mineral in it.

It has helped with my pigmentation!
Jay from NC
If you have oily-combination skin, this lotion is a great moisturizer. I've been using it along with the 3-step process for about 2 weeks and I'm impressed. Plus I don't have to worry about having oily, greasy skin as the day continues.
J Mils from Buffalo ny
To be fair-- it's my own fault for not paying close enough attention to the product name. I'm a die-hard fan of the gel version of this lotion and have been for sometime now. I bought this thinking it was that. Cracked it open to give it a try and I couldn't believe the smell. It smells like tire rubber. Aggressively so. If this were the first clinique product I was trying it would've been enough to turn me off the the line completely. Luckily I saved my receipt and plan to return this ASAP and already have another gel version on the way.
Hibo from Virginia
I have dry skin and was really excited to try this. Unfortunately it did nothing for me. Not worth it.
AJ from CT
I use this product once a day, every day for my oily skin - it works perfectly as intended. My skin remains shine-free all day long. I pair it with the Clinique iD Active Cartridge (White) to maintain an even skin tone, which definitely helps. It doesn't get rid of my acne spots, but despite that my skin tone looks even. I love these two together, and I appreciate the first time I went to Ulta someone helped me select these two items together. I was using Aveeno on my face prior, and my skin would still remain super oily. I love this product, and I don't plan on switching anytime soon.

I use this with the three-step Clinique process every morning and evening.

Clinique hydrating moisture lotion is better than moisturizing gel. Gel doesn't moisture as well as lotion for me.
