Most Helpful Positive Review Fresh, clean & clear
I was offered a sample at the mall and when I tried it on my face before bed I was in love. It absorbed into my skin quicker then most products and my face felt nourished. I felt like this was too good to be true. So I woke up the next morning and realize my face was not oily or sticky. So the next day I used in the day time hours to see how it would hold up during the day time and same results. No oily skin or no need for reapplication. This is my new go to. My only concern is as the weather change and as Illinois enters winter, will this product still hold up? Will I need to turn to something thicker such as the Clinique Moisture surge. Which I absolutely love as well. I hope clinique continue to keep this product around. Its good for hot summer months. My skin isn't super oily but can become dry but lately more oily than day. I use a toner that provides hydration, a face serum and an eye serum before applying this. Therefore my face moisturizer needs to be lightweight, or else my face will look oily.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not great, but better than nothing
I was looking for a lightweight moisturizer that would work with my combination skin. I'm very dry on my forehead and cheeks, but slightly oily on my nose and chin.
When you first put this on it feels kind of sticky, it's not the most pleasant but soaks in fairly quickly. Unfortunately my skin still feels dry and tight on my forehead right after application, and that feeling never really stops.
After about an hour is when I become the most disappointed. My nose becomes tacky and almost feels like skin is pilling up. It's a very gross feeling and makes me feel dirty. By the end of the day I feel like my whole face needs to be exfoliated. I exfoliate regularly, so I don't believe the feeling is actually dead skin, but maybe the product?
After two weeks of using this I give up. I'm switching to a different product.

Love how fast it goes to work on my dry skin and doesn't feel heavy or greasy. Easy to use right after cleansing my face, although I do use it on my hands sometimes too.

I've tried so many moisturizers before and all of them made me super oily causing more breakouts. This one is the only one not to do so. It's super lightweight giving the perfect amount of moisture I need without make me feel greasy. You can use it to prep your skin before your makeup and it doesn't melt your makeup off even on the hottest days. For oily skin it's the perfect amount of moisture I'd probably say for drier skin types you might need a serum or an oil to give you more moisture.
Recommend for sensitive skin and acne prone skin
Hannah J. from Usa
Love this. My go-to for years. It moisturizes, little goes a long way. And I have very sensitive skin and it doesn't break me out cuz it's fragrance free and since it's clear, it doesn't have anything that will clog your pores
Skincare Fan from TX
I love this moisturizer. It mixes well with my active serums. It gives me perfect hydration with no irritation. My skin is dry and can be reactive to certain ingredients. I bought the large size and will re-purchase when I run out.
I would buy this again
hailey from New Jersey
i have no complaints about this product! it really cleans your face and is super smooth. it is easy to apply and gets rid of acne in about a week
Works for me and I'm happy
Mabes from Los angeles
I bought this yesterday because I wanted to try to see if it works. i like light moisturizers, specially gels cause it doesnt get sticky and heavy. I have a very dry skin. Specially on mg forehead, my forehead is always peeling and super dry. I applied this last night and when I woke up this morning, my skin is so soft. Really! And my forehead is smooth no peeling anymore. I only applied once and I could really tell the difference. I'm very happy.
Oily Skin Must Have!
Anyssa from Columbus, OH
I have been searching for a good moisturizer for my very oily skin and after some research it was suggested that I try a gel moisturizer to help. I took a leap on this one even though its way more than I would ever spend on a moisturizer and it has not been a disappointment at all! I have been using this product for about a month now and have noticed a big difference! I apply it in the morning and night and it keeps my face feeling and looking fresh without adding extra oils to my face. I have now gotten to the point where my skin feels and looks so nice that I no longer wear foundation unless its a special occasion or event. Buy this you wont regret it!
Perfect product for combination skin. Acts as a primer
Deep from Macedonia
I used that product everyday. I even tried that as a primer for my makeup and it was brilliant.
Didn't do a thing
Rae from America
I bought this along with the uneven skin tone insert. I used this everyday, as directed, and I did not see one dark spot lighten. I've used other skin care from this company that I paid a boat load for and no results. Sorry Clinique this is a hard pass.
I took a gamble
Dee from Pittsburgh
My first time with this product was through the 21 days is beauty sale but I'm now hooked.
It is very hydrating but not heavy or greasy.
Nice and light
Jess from Southern ca
Perfect for warmer months when my skin doesn't need as much hydration. Goes nicely under foundation. Just a nice basic moisturizer that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
Absolutely will buy again and again!
Marty the Ulta obsessed customer from Florida
I thought this would feel gloopy or sticky but it doesn't. It actually feels light on my skin. I currently use the yellow moisturizer for oily skin which is nice, but I am definitely switching to the clear. So happy that Ulta sold this product during the 21 days of beauty.
LoveToRunSoCal from Los Angeles
At first when I tried this with a sample, I had no use for it and just tossed it into my gym bag. It's perfect to put on my face after a workout to replenish some moisture. Then I started to use it at home in the mornings before my run. It provides a light layer of moisture and a surge quickly so I can put on some sunscreen right before I head outside. On workdays I use this (with the booster base) in place of a serum. Not only does it absorb quickly but it provides a great base for my superdefense. If I'm in a hurry, I can skip the primer before I put on my foundation. And it makes my skin look so good! I've also used it to mix with the fresh pressed vitamin c, then top with my superdefense once absorbed. This works well with almost everything. I always keep a tube in my travel case. Now I can't be without it.
Good News: It Works
Jenna from USA
Bad News: While it didn't leave my face dry, it did make my face itchy, which I think had to do with the sticky texture the moisturizer left behind.
Neutral News: If you are struggling with acne like me and need a moisturizer that will moisture your face, will actively fight acne, and leave your face not a sticky, itchy mess? I highly reccomend the Anti-Imperfection Dramatically Different Gel.
El from Chicago
This moisturizer is nice for light hydration when my skin is oilier. I tend to layer it over toner and a serum. It's never broken me out or irritated my skin in any way, and I think people with oily skin would really like this. My skin has been a little dryer lately, so now that I'm almost done with the bottle of this I need to start using something more moisturizer but I would consider buying this again at some point.

Love it and not heavy at all perfect
Probably will return

This smells like Jim Beam whiskey. It's hardly tolerable for me personally. It's too watery for me.
Definitely will but this product again

It goes on smooth and creates a deeper hydration than a regular moisturizer.
Name says it all!
Sarah from Phoenix
Oh my god did this change my life!! My skin has NEVER been this soft and plump. I have sensitive skin on my face too and it hasn't broken me out or burned after weeks of continual use. I use it just like any other moisturizer and it's done wonders for my skin.
Lala from TX
I tend to breakout with moisturizers that have oils in them, it really clogs up my pores. So when I found this one I was so happy! No more breakouts, drys fast, and I'm just really satisfied with it!
Acne prone girls this is your answer
F from J
I always felt like my skin was so oily after using ANY brand moisturizer . And I would break out from it but THEN my skin would break out from being dry and not taken care of from using endless salacylic acid , sulfur and BP . This moisturizer has calmed my skin down . It is an absolute godsend just read the details and description - it is clean and GREAT for your skin without feeling like you have put anything on. I noticed a difference after the first night of using it - great under make up as primer. Buy it !!!!!! Clinique ... THANK YOU .
Great addition for prepping skin ✨
Samantha from Massachusetts
I got this as a gift with a purchase & I HAD to get the full size version! Before makeup I use eye cream and moisturize the rest of my face. Usually my under eyes are super dry... no matter what I'd use theyd crease btw I use great concealers.. adding this product on top of my creams has very much improved the look of my makeup my under eye creases are no longer there everything is seamless!
Ashley from Atlanta, GA
I have fairly sensitive combo skin and actually tried this in a sample before deciding to buy the big bottle. It dries quickly on my skin and noticeably evens out my skin tone as soon as I put it on. It isn't the strongest moisturizer I've ever used, but it does help without being oily or greasy. The reason I took away a star though is because it does smell a bit like alcohol. I don't love perfume-y things on my face so I'm not turned off by it, and the smell dissipates completely after it dries (which only takes a few seconds). If you're looking for a smell-good moisturizer, though, this isn't it. If you're looking for something that's affordable, long-lasting, and good for sensitive skin, I'd recommend it!
