Rated 4.7 out of 5 stars
I love this moisturizing gel so much! The lotion was nice for keeping the skin moisturized but felt heavy on my skin. The gel though is fantastic! My skin is soft, less oily, and the product absorbs fast! It's great at prepping the face for other products and/or make-up. It's also cost-effective because it lasts so long! A tiny amount is all you need! I've been using the same bottle for two months and still have plenty! Also the pump is wonderful! It keeps everything clean and convenient! I highly recommend anyone with oilier skin to give this a try! Great work Clinique!
I usually don't write many reviews, but have for Clinique's 3-step system. I wish I would have known these facts before purchasing these items.
I don't break out all that often, but was having a bout of constant breakouts and I couldn't find anything that worked. I switched my whole face cleansing routine to clinique products since they were allergen tested and supposed to be good for sensitive skin. I was doing everything I was supposed to, but yet still breaking out even more than before I started using Clinique.
I discovered that this gel has three ingredients in it that are listed among the highest of comedogenic (acne aggrevating) ingredients. They are Laureth-4, Laureth-23, and Oleth-10. Laureth-4 is rated a 5 on the comedogenic scale, which is the highest you can go! I stopped using this product and began using a face wash and simple lotion that are both paraben free and non-comedogenic, That together only cost me $12, and in just one week my face is completely acne free. I do not recommend this product.

I can feel the difference on my face and I love it 100%. I don't need much and it keeps my skin moisturized. Though I have oily skin, it doesn't make me feel like I'm adding to it only helping it.

I love this moisturizer. It does its job without the greasy feeling of other moisturizers. I use it everyday.

Cooodie from Phoenix, AZ
I have been using this product for 9 years and I have never been able to find something that my skin loves more than this. I have oily skin and this has never made me feel greasy or shiny. It has also never caused me to breakout. It leaves a nice, healthy glow to my skin. If I could rate this more than 5 starts I honestly would.

love this product for my skin
Lauren from New Orleans, Louisiana
This moisturizer is wonderful. I love the gel because it moisturizes and feels so refreshing going on without feeling oily. I LOVE this and will be purchasing the big size as well

Great addition to your routine! Adds moisture without making you feel oily or greasy. Definitely great under a moisturizer.

It went on smoothly at first but had a horrible alcohol smell to it and felt very greasy, then it made my skin red and irritated. Two days later I had a breakout that took me an entire year to fix.I highly recommend you stay away from this product if you have sensitive skin like me.
Smell from Pittsburgh PA
Went in the store to test it, very strong alcohol smell. Also felt a little greasy. Went with "Purity" from Philosophy as a light weight moisturizer alternative

I have used this product on and off for several years now. I love it! I only use it at night, since it doesn't have any sunscreen in it. And I usually only use it in the winter months when my skin tends to get more dry & my usual face lotions or creams aren't quite moisturizing enough. I love that it is oil-free, so no breakouts for me.
Linda from WA
I use this as part of my nightly and morning routine after washing my face with Clinique soap and part of the 3 step process.

Although this has assumed pore clogging ingredients, including algae, I do not break out using this, it works great with Pacifica glow serum, my skin has never looked better, many other moisturizers with no pore clogging ingredients have broke me out bad, so don't go by that just an fyi, everyone skin reacts differently.
Billie from Union, New Jersey
I have been using this moisturizer for more than 30 years and I love it. The best I have ever used. No. 7 is also a good one, and of course the Oil of Olay threesome as well however, this one is tried and true. Love it!!!
Shelly C from Houston TX
I've tried many products and I always come back to this tried and true classic! great for daytime wear. it can be layered with a serum and SPF. A little goes along way. The 4 oz bottle lasts me a long time. I live in the South near the coast so it's a warm, humid climate. this gel is the perfect amount of moisturization for me.

I was looking for a good lightweight moisturizer especially at night and I think I've found the one. I've been trying some travel size moisturizers of some other brands and came across this one on the best sellers list. It's a good gel moisturizer. Soaks in well and doesn't leave your skin oily. Moisturizers well and adds to the glow when I use my Vitamin C in my morning routine. I have tried once a day and twice. I like it better with twice a day for sure. It mixes well with my Cerave AM moisturizer. I only use that on top of it sometimes for the sunscreen and need a little heavy barrier. Really no complaints!
Amira from Pennsauken, NJ
I have combo oily skin and this did nothing for me. I didn't see nor feel any moisturization
Okay from Chicago, IL
I've tried this product before and my skin liked it back then. Today the product was just okay. My skin didn't breakout or react badly but it also didn't make a noticeable difference. My skin is dry and it didn't help that much (winter months might need something stronger). For the price I'd go for something else.
Erin from Maine
This moisturizer is GREAT for oily skin!! Every other oil free product left my face greasy immediately, but this doesn't!
Ally from Detroit, MI
I really wanted to like this moisturizer but it made my skin burn and itch like crazy. My face and neck was completely covered in little bumps and it made the texture of my skin nasty. I would not recommend this to anyone.

My Dear Wife passed away in August of 2016. Four days after her passing, I was admitted to the
Michael DeBakey Veterans Hospital in Houston for a stroke. About two weeks later, I had a Triple Bypass.
Upon being able to return home, I found this Clinque Product in her makeup, almost a full tube. I tried it
out. I have been using it every day after I shave. Very soothing. I am told that I do not look like I'm
81 years old. Sadly, yesterday was the burial of my 103 years and 10 month old mom. I plan on using
this product as long as I'm here, hopefully, for at least another 23 years.
I would like to add, that I would not be here if it were not for the Veteran's Administration & Hospital.
Bibi from New Orleans
I love this moisturizer. The trial size always were so good I had to keep buying this. I'm also very acne prone and this doesn't break me out. Also started retinol and it's drying so I use a small layer before I apply the retinol and it's perfect.
from Huntsville AL
As a twice a day moisturizer it works great.
This has been my favorite moisturizer for a while! Makes my face so soft and leaves it hydrated all day.
