      Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+:

      I really do like this, and I try to use it often, but the smell is just terrible. I don't know how to describe it other than just kind of old smelling. I can't get past it and I skip moisturizing sometimes bc I just don't like the scent.

                        Hi! If you experience dryness in the form of tightness and pulling that you feel in your skin, you are a candidate for Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +. If your skin is normal and you experience oil in your t-zone, Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel is the better option. Thank you for your question and be sure to let us know what you think.

                      I have normal to dry skin that can be acne prone and am looking for something to mix with my foundation so it does not catch on my dry patches. Would this work for that? And what would be better the + or the normal one?

                    • Q:

                      I've noticed many comments about reformulation. What reformulation did Clinique do for this moisturizer, and what was their goal? What ingredients changed, and what results should I expect? I have flaky, dry skin. Would this be a good option for me? If not, what do you recommend?
