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 used to use this all the time for my super dry skin. I would slather my face in it because I needed so much to see any benefit. I needed so much because it works so poorly. Good if you want to greasy but not hydrated. You can get much better moisturizers for cheaper

I was looking for a tinted moisturizer. I used Turnaround cream and it's seems to be discontinued.
I absolutely love this product. I bought the fine lines and wrinkles cartridge to go with it. It's perfect for me!

I have oily skin and use the gel, and it's perfect.
Diane from Prescott Valley Arizona
this is perfect for this dry winter weather. I also use this to add additional moisture to my make up, add a pump to your make up before you apply it to the face, the additional moisture will not settle in yr wrinkle

I have struggled with finding the perfect moisturizer, and I finally found one that is perfect. I have been using this for 5 years now. It leaves my skin glowing and feeling moisturized. Perfect for oily/ combination skin.
Anna from Colorado
I love this product I've been using it daily for about a year. I have very sensitive skin that breaks out very easily so I was hesitant at first to try this but it has never caused me breakouts. The smell is a little weird but after a little while you get used to it. It's currently winter and my skin is very dry and it still makes my skin feel just as nice and it did in the summer. I highly recommend it when you're on a budget! The small bottle lasts me about 4 months when used once daily.

This facial lotion works great on dry skin. Doesn't leave my skin greasy or oily. And it's light weight.
Kayla from Saint George, Utah
Smells like chemicals but It is very moisturizing. Leaves my skin slightly oily and tacky feeling. I like my face moisturizer to dry down on my skin. I will probably use this for nighttime only.

It goes on smoothly and keeps my face hydrated.
Bri from Amery, WI
I have tried numerous highly recommended facial moisturizers over the years & this one is at the top of my list. The product actually matches the product description. It is light & non greasy, yet your skin still feels it had a drink! Works wonderful day or night & helps smooth foundation application!
Zoey from San Diego
It broke me out most of the time I used it. The only times it didn't were when my skin was extremely dry (after using a drying serum in winter), but even then I couldn't apply it anywhere near my less dry skin or it'd break out. I'd only recommend it to people who are extremely dry and/or don't have sensitive skin.

I did not understand this Clinique ID set up. No one was around to help me. I ended up with the moisturizer without a pump. Not happy and will be returning it.
Tati from Florida
The product doesn't smell well. Won't buy it anymore.

Caroline from Lexington
i've been using this moisturizer for almost two years now, don't really know why. i have severely dry skin in the winter and this moisturizer does nothing. it makes my face super greasy and sits on top of my skin for HOURS. my skin looks dull and dry and this product doesn't help me with either of those things. there's better out there.
JP from Michigan
I wear it everyday. It's so light but yet provides the little bit of coverage I need.
Brittany from South Chesterfield
I have combination skin and have really struggled with large pores on my cheeks, oily forehead and overall uneven texture skin for quite a while. I would get these little bumps on my forehead that weren't exactly pimples. They just looked like dry little bumps. I started off with just the base, the dramatically different moisturizing lotion, I didn't think there was much of a difference. My skin didn't dry out and wasn't overly oily so it was doing its job. To aide in my texturing skin I used the blue serum capsule that you could install into the moisturizer and it made a HUGE difference! I noticed it working after the 3rd or 4th week and my skin has been very receptive to it. I use EltaMD tinted sunscreen over this moisturizer and it gives me a dewy look with minimal effort. I will continue to buy as long as they don't change!

I have only been using this for a little over a week, but it has worked wonders. The grey transforms into what looks like light coverage foundation, but without the weight and if it matched my exact shade.... I think it makes my skin even and the pores definitely appear smaller. Also, less is more in this case. I only have to use 2-3 small pumps to cover my entire face. I personally add a dash of powder to my problem areas but you could go with just this. I can't wait to see the benefits from daily use over the next few months. I will be purchasing again as long as it still works.
Joya from Houston
The texture felt a bit watery and it made my face feel tight. I've had the same full bottle for almost a year now. I wish I had returned it.
It wasn't great or bad it just was. It feels refreshing while being applied but thatfeeling doesn't stay. After a while it felt a bit tacky on my skin. I've had the same full bottle since March of 2020, it's now 2021. I can't even manage to give it away.
Amy from Utah
It's a greasy moisturizer. I have very dry skin and I really wanted this to work for me. I used this moisturizer daily for a couple of months and started to break out horribly on my forehead.
scmissy from Charleston, SC
I use this as a day and night moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and has no overpowering odor. Since I use the travel size in a tube, when the tube gets low it can be difficult to squeeze the product out. I also have arthritis in my right thumb and it's painful to use it to squeeze or twist or basically manipulate anything.
