Most Helpful Positive Review Refreshingly Hydrating
This clear, fragrance-free gel is perfect for a summer moisturizer. I love the consistency-it's light and easy to apply. It feels a bit like I splashed some water on my face right after application!
I'm a huge fan of the Moisture Surge Supercharged Concentrate and I was wondering what the difference would be. Obviously the ingredients are different, but I just put them both on my skin (DD on left, MS on right) and I'd say the MS feels slightly more "potent" and a little tacky. I definitely like it better than the yellow DDML gel formula, which was just not hydrating enough for me.
This is a "win" and I hope it stays around! Especially because it's clear and fragrance free... hopefully great for people who are super sensitive.
Most Helpful Critical Review Definitely a miss on this one Clinique
For starters, I've been buying Clinique products since I was 16 (now 45). I have used moisture surge mask, moisture surge "super charged concentrate", dramatically different lotion and gel. Purchased the dramatically different clear "jelly" and was not impressed at all. Honestly, I think you could get the same results from a $5 tube of KY Jelly.
I was not paid, or given free samples to try this product. An honest review from a long time user of Clinique products. Save your money ladies and use one of their other products.

StephieC from Lake Worth, FL
This moisturizer has a water like jelly quality which feels nice on the skin.
I use it morning and night. A little bit goes a long way. Perfect hydration without a greasy feel -I have sensitive skin . Received a sample and then bought the full size.
Sticky and not moisturizing
KT from NYC
Glad I bought the trial size before committing to the full size product. Not a fan. Sticky and felt like it dried my skin out. Gross.
Liz from ct
My skin feels dry, tight, and matte with this product. Customer care recommended this product to me and I gave it a try. I would say to definitely get a sample first! I have dry combination and sensitive skin. Really wanted this to work but sadly going back to their other lotions.
Anna from LA
I use this product every morning in summer. It's really cool. My skin loves it!
Logan's mom from Texas
I use this product twice a day at the end of my 3-step process and I'm loving so far
Easy to Use!
Miiiia from CA
So I was not a fan of the original lotion due to its smell and texture... But this jelly one is super light and easy to apply :3
I have dry skin and the jelly alone is def. not enough, but it worked very well if you already applied essence/serum, and need just something light to finish.
Makes my skin glow!

I have oily skin and it's just right to use it in summer.
c2h from NY
great moisturizer for hydration.
I like the effect
anahich from Las Vegas Nv
First I got a sample and I liked the cooling effect. So I ordered it and now I use it after the lotion and I really enjoy it.
Good for summer
Ann34 from Seattle, WA
I've been using the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion for years, but I got this with my reward points just to give it a try. It's a nice, light moisturizer. It layers well with sunscreen. I have dryer skin and I don't think it would be enough for me in the winter on its own. Even though I do like it, I don't find myself reaching for it as often as I do the lotion. My husband, who has oilier skin has been using it a lot more than I have. Overall, I think it's just a preference in terms of what texture you like your moisturizer to be, but in my opinion this is probably more suited to people who don't tend who have dry skin.
My skin looks smooth
Laura from Texas
I bought this product a few weeks ago. Since using it my skin feel so smooth. Great for all skin types.

lizq11 from Florida
This is a great moisturizer for my skin. I don't have a lot of acne or oil. This product is lightweight and feels nice on my skin the entire day. It never feels sticky or like it's coming off hours later. I don't use many face products and this one is very reliable to throw on if I'm rushing out the door.
kaseya83 from Largo, Fl
I like the cooling effect. I use it with the lotion and I really enjoy it. Nice work
Lightweight, great under foundation!
Ali711 from NJ
Received this as a sample after buying my first Clinique products at Ulta. I love how it lightly hydrates dry areas and doesn't make oily areas more oily - perfect for my combination/sensitive skin. I wear this under Even Better Foundation and it lasts all day! Very happy and will buy a full size when my sample runs out.
Best moisturizer for oily skin
Pilar from New York, NY
This is the best moisturizer for hydration of my oily skin. Does not leave residues or shine and keeps my skin soft and protected the entire day! Love it. Would NOT recommend, however, if you need super strong hydration.
I'm loving it
Ana07 from Fort Lauderdale
I have never had such hydrated skin. I have mixed skin and it is always difficult to moisturize it without being oily. I finally found it!
Great for Daytime in the Summer!
Jessi V from Michigan
I got this as a sample and am really enjoying it for daytime use under my SPF. It's lightweight and nicely compliments my combination oily skin. Not sure how this would work in the winter months (I live in Michigan) but for this unusually hot, humid summer it's been perfect!
Ashley D from Houston, TX
This is my favorite to wear under make up. I don't need a primer. Makeup goes on flawlessly.
bean b from Florida, FL
The effect is good, I will continue to buy after use
Great for my super oily skin in hot summer, but maybe not...
MannieS from El Paso
I am amazed at how light it is! And unlike the Moisture Surge, this one does not burn my skin when I sweat. But again, it is very light and breezy, I cannot imagine it to be sufficient for people with drier skin in the winter.
Locks in moisture & protects skin
JoyLove from Charlotte
I didn't think I was going to love this Hydrating Jelly as much as I do, but it has been awesome to use this summer! I have dry/oily combination skin - in my early 40s. I love to use moisture surge or other serums under this moisturizer. It really does a nice job evening out my skin and feels like a protective layer that's great under my makeup. Highly recommend!
best for my skin
Maia from Delaware
this one is the best for my skin. it
I may have found my forever moisturizer!
Mountain girl from Bozeman, MT
I added this to my cart on a whim when I was last shopping at Ulta.com. And I love it! Goes on easily, non greasy feel, absorbs quickly. This could become my new go-to!
Lightweight solution for oily skin
Oksana from Dallas, TX
I'm rating Dramatically Different™ Hydrating Jelly with 4 stars only because I like the texture of it a bit less than the texture of Dramatically Different™ Moisturizing Lotion+. I would say it's just my personal preference to apply something silkier rather than pure watery. But nevertheless, it works the same well and gives all the needed hydration for the day. It doesn't make my skin shinier than it is. Probably it will be a perfect product for people who love extra lightweight textures.
Good light moisturizer for summer
Brandy from colorado
Nice light moisturizer. Perfect for summer. Soaks in fast, no gross sticky feel that some jellies leave behind.
