        Glowing Skin

        from Davenport, IA

        Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+:

        I received a small small sample size from purchases of liters at the sale. I've used this lotion for a week. When I went over to see my mom with no makeup. She immediately asked what's changed because I was glowing, and my skin looked so smooth. Little goes a long way. My skin isn't necessarily dry or really oily and works great for me. Really interested in trying the gel.

              from Virginia

              Comments about Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+:

              Honestly, I have had dry skin around my mouth area for about 4 years now. I have used Aveeno moisturizers, Philosophy's renewed hope in a jar, Mario Badescu's moisturizers, but this moisturizer cleared up my dry areas within a few days. I don't think I'll ever use another moisturizer!!

Try Clinique Super City Block Broad Spectrum SPF 40 to apply after your moisturizer for broad level sun protection and makeup primer benefits.

                      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.

                      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.
