Most Helpful Positive Review I hope they never stop selling this
So my mom and I were planning on stopping into Ulta to try this after seeing it in the app. We both have totally different skin types and tones, but this was amazing for both of us. We immediately felt the difference after applying.
I especially like that you can personaliz this product by selecting a cartridge that applies to what your looking to try! I purchased the jelly vs the lotion 1.) Because it was a new concept. 2.) because this is what I tested in store and fell in looooove.
I purchased the blue cartridge for pores and tone. I experience some hormonal acne that comes at specific times of the month and other times I am super dry and notice it especially around my mouth.
I have used this product once daily in the morning after a shower and when my face is clean. I do not even need to reapply as the day goes on. This product is a little spendy, but the wear of it and the amount needed makes up for that.
I called my mom a couple days after and told her I couldn't believe the difference it had made in such a short time.
Best advice, stop in and try it. You will love it! Ask for samples too (; I have a couple other serums to try in this line and I can't wait to see more results!
PS. Always apply with clean hands!
Most Helpful Critical Review Don't Purchase!
Just like everyone else, I saw this product all over tiktok and had to see what the hype was about. I read plenty of both negative and positive reviews, so I decided to give it a try to myself. Man, was I disappointed. I will never purchase this product EVER again. Actually, I cannot wait until the Ulta near me opens back up, so I can return it and put that money towards a decent face product. First of all, it is a total rip off that you need to buy not only this, but the pump with the primer of your choice. I was so excited to try this out, and once it failed the first time, I tried so hard to make it work. The first time I put it on, I used my hands (which I never do) and thought it looked great. UNTIL I looked in the mirror about 20 mins later. It legitametly looked like someone had smudged dirt on my cheeks. It was so streaky and patchy. It was not evenly balanced what so ever. If you are going to make a moisturized, please do not ever make one like this ever again. I then again tried using a beauty blender to apply it, by putting it directly on the beauty blender. Nope, no color. Then I decided to put it on my hand, rub it in a little and apply it with a beauty blender. NOPE. It was so grainy and dried so streaky, that I had to re-wet my beauty blender and basically smudge it off of my face. I cannot wait to get my money back. Such a terrible product and I had such high hopes and tried so many different ways to make it work.

I used the original formula for years without any problems. Since I ran out of the original and Ulta didn't have it, I purchased the ID without a cartridge.
I have mild Rosacea and my dermatologist told me not to use anything that contains oil on my face. I wasn't aware that the new ID lotion contained mineral oil. Now my face is burning and irritated. Have used only Clinique products for years. Now, I can no longer trust Clinique products.
Smelled like gasoline
Chris from CA
I already wrote a comment, but it looks like they deleted it since it was semi-negative. It smelled like gasoline! had this very strange motor oil/gas smell the entire way through the bottle until it was gone. I used the Blue/lotion combo, and it was ok on my skin. Didn't see any changes, but didnt cause any problems. But the smell was really strange. Don't think I'd try this again.

i never leave reviews but this product completely smoothed my skin tone out. I have oily skin with breakouts and large pores and this made my skin look so smooth and it kept my oil controlled all day. I was able to skip foundation all together. This is my new addition to products I use every day. My skin tone is considered medium tan and darker in the summer.

I have used this moisturizer for years and really like it. Recently I have had trouble finding a good face cleanser that cleans pores but does not leave my face extremely dry. Because of that I need to apply moisturizer more than once.
Shouldn't have listened to the salesperson
Kelsey from Lansing, MI
I bought this on the recommendation from a store team member and regret it. She said it works for everyone and it certainly does not.. My skin tone is too fair and it turns my face orange.
Will buy again
Lesssteps from Nebraska
My morning makeup routine has the least amount of steps possible- but this is a must not skip step. My skin feels so healthy and light when I use this gel product.
Love it and will continue to purchase
Stacy from Holland
I have tried several tinted moisturizers and this was seems to be the best with best price.
I purchased both these items. They made my skin very dry.
Ro from North Tonawanda NY
I'm unable to use these products. They dry my skin too much.
So far so good .

Finally got rid of maskne
Lg from Athens, GA
I wear a mask all day at work and tried EVERYTHING to fix it for the massive chin breakouts I was getting on my chin (both bumps and cystic)...I use the bb gel with the breakout insert during the day (amazed how it evens my skin tone and matches my tone to provide light makeup for work or provide a base for foundation) and the breakout gel with the breakout insert at night. It completely cleared up my skin—finally. I do have to sometimes moisturize before using so I might try a different item now that I'm maintaining clear skin. Thank you Clinique for giving an affordable product that works!
This product is fantastic!!
Queen B from Jacksonville,Fl
Definitely helps with controlling my oil skin!! Finally something that actually works!
I would buy this product again
Myranda from Lansing, MI
It's just a tad darker than my actual skin tone but not noticeable enough to stop using. Easy to assemble and a good alternative to foundation while having to wear a mask at work during the pandemic.
Kaylah from Kansas City, mo
I absolutely love this product! It gives me a light coverage to balance my skin and leaves it so soft.
skin feels so smooth
Sjuziana from Hammond Indiana
I have tried lots of products due to sensitive skin and redness on my face. This product with the added cartridge for redness works magnificent. I could tell a difference on my face already
Love the product,but could have used my old pump .

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!
Gel Is Great for Oily Skin

I have oily skin and use the gel, and it's perfect.
Southern Lady from Mississippi
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.
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!

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.
Joya from Houston
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.
I will definitely be buying this product again
Mom of 4 from Berkley, Ma
One week after using this product and my skin looks and feels great!!
Only used it for 5 days and starting to see a difference!
Kaly from Lancaster, PA
I use it every morning after I wash my face. Feels refreshing.
Daniella the shopper from MI
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!
