    Comments about Clinique Travel Size Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

    It seems to be a good product. However, I am very sensitive to lotions, shampoo/conditioners etc because of my allergies. It irritated by eyes and face with whatever it is made with. Thought this brand would be good but not for me.

                I have pretty dry skin and every time I go into an ulta and ask for a moisturizer they always recommend Clinique so I bought this just to try and it did not work well I had to put 2 layers of it on and it still didn't moisturize my face very well. Plus it smells kind of weird it's not anything crazy.

                  from Utah

                  Comments about Clinique Travel Size Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel:

                  This product is like putting hair gel on my face. At first it seems moisturizing and then as it starts to absorb into my skin it feels slightly tightening and then an hour or two later my face is flaking in more places than it was before. I am glad I just got the travel size instead of committing to a full size.

                          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.
