Contains Dimethicone

Pros

  • Absorbs Quickly
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Moisturizes Well
  • Not Greasy

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about Clinique Travel Size Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

      This is very refreshing and lightweight which is great for those with oily skin. I like to add a drop of facial oil for extra hydration in the winter months. It gives a smooth finish to the skin BUT I just realized it contains dimethicone :( which is an ingredient I like to avoid because I have a lot of clogged pores. Other than that I really enjoyed using this.

              Comments about Clinique Travel Size Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

              I really need to buy the full size of this. I have combo skin (oil slick t-zone) and this actually helped my problem with being oily. It's a comfortable lightweight gel so I never had any residue or greasy feeling left on my face. Didn't irritate my skin or have an overpowering smell either. The best moisturizer I've found for my combination, acne prone, super sensitive skin!

              Comments about Clinique Travel Size Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

              Bought the travel size for the convenience, i had previously bought the full size many years back, but I don't remember it ever smelling like this. It just had a very strong plasticky scent, almost like a chemical scent, which made it hard to want to reach for on a daily basis.

                          Hello! Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel does not contain a sunscreen because it would have changed the texture. Additionally, it should be used twice a day. We don't want you to put on sunscreen if you don't need it; it's not necessary for you to put it on at night. Apply Clinique Super City Block SPF 40 after your Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel to protect against the sun. Thanks for your question and have a great week!

                          A:

                          Hi. Thank you for your question! If the dryness you are referring to is an actual feeling of tightness in the skin, this is a true indication of dryness. In this case, you should use the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion.
                          If the dryness you are referring to is not a feeling of uncomfort, you should use Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.
                          If you are also experiencing a bit of visible flakiness on the skin, I suggest using an additional exfoliant. A few examples include Cliniques Clarifying Lotion, Cliniques Turnaround Concentrate or Cliniques 7 Day Scrub Cream. There are many options for your skin if you have the need for additional exfoliation as well as moisturization.
                          Thank you and have a great week!

                          If you have dry skin that feels tight and uncomfortable you would probably enjoy Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion Plus instead. The gel is best suited for oily skin. Clinique's Moisture Surge Intense is a perfect partner for dry skin. If you are only experiencing flakiness and not feeling tight and dry, try daily exfoliation with Clinique's Clarifying Lotion and partner that with your custom fit Dramatically Different product.
