          I usually use two pumps for my face and the bottle has lasted me over a year and a half. Long lasting hydration but doesn't do anything for individual issues (pores, dark spots, etc)

              I really love this product. I bought the trial size because I was hestitant because I overall have oily skin but I was getting very dry patches. After about a week my skin was clear of dry patches! Compared to other facial lotion I use, my skin isn't as oily during the day. It absorbs really well and I love using it before applying makeup. Will be picking up a larger size soon!

                    I have always had REALLY dry skin, but after using this product for a while, my skin has become very oily in the T-zone but super dry around my eyes and upper/lower cheeks. Why? Am I doing something wrong?

                      Hello. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + is designed for dry (tight) skin. For best results, apply only in those areas. If flakiness is what you are experiencing, try Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse Off Formula to soften and de-flake before moisturization. Thanks for your question and have a great week!

                  • Q:

                    My t zone is very oily and dry on my cheeks so I have been using the type 3 version along with the gel. The gel has been great at keeping my oily t zone at bay but it still feels tight on my cheeks. Should I purchase the lotion for my cheeks and continue the gel on my t zone? Or should I completely switch to the type 2 version?

                      Hello. Choose Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + and apply in your dry areas only, avoiding your t-zone. Clinique uses the term "non-acnegenic." If a product is non-acnegenic, it has undergone clinical testing by a board-certified dermatologist and was determined not to increase the number of or worsen acne lesions.
