I’ve liked most of the Clinique products I’ve used on my normal to dry skin including the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. This lotion is packaged in a squarish, clear plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The lotion is creamy yellow in colour, is lightweight and has no obvious fragrance.
The moisturiser is a blend of sunflower seed cake, barley extract and cucumber fruit extract that helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier, and it is formulated with hyaluronic acid, glycerin and urea to provide hydrating moisturising benefits. But, no SPF which is a bit disappointing for our climate.
I apply the moisturiser after cleansing and toning. The moisturiser absorbs easily into my skin making my skin feel smooth and hydrated. I use this moisturiser during my morning skincare routine because I don’t think it is rich enough for night time use. I can apply my BB cream over the moisturiser without any balling or flaking.
I wouldn’t say it’s the best moisturiser I’ve used but it does a good enough job because it leaves my skin looking glowing and healthy and doesn’t dry out my skin.
There are plenty of things that I love about the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. I love the hygienic pump bottle that dispenses a small amount of product with each pump as needed, the clear container so that you can easily see when you need to restock and the fragrance free and light lotion-like consistency that absorbs easily. Unfortunately, where this product doesn't do it for me is in the results.
I have combination, hormonal skin. My skin can be oily and slick and dry and flaky at the same time (although in different zones), and trying to find a moisturiser that solves both seems to be a venture that is proving both time consuming and costly. Although this moisturizer didn't seem to affect or exacerbate my oily complexion, it just didn't seem to give me any long lasting relief for my dry, flaking skin. Immediately after application my skin felt somewhat balanced, comfortable and hydrated, however it was short lived as my skin was feeling parched again within a few short hours.
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ is a lovely light and super absorbent moisturiser. As someone with oily skin, I found that it did not feel heavy or as though it was clogging my pores. The bottle is a great size for travelling and the pump gives out a good amount every time. I found in the very clod months that I need a heavier night cream, but that this was good for the daytime. Main complaint is that it does not contain any SPF protection.
This moisturiser was part of the first 3-step skin routine I ever tried as a teenager. Such a great and simple moisturiser that does the job well at keeping your skin feeling hydrated and light after application. As I've gotten older I've moved away from using this as I felt like I need something more heavy duty, but I think it's great people who want something simple yet effective. It's also fantastic in summer because it soaks into your skin quickly and leaves it feeling soft without any residue.
I have combination/oily skin, so I thought that this lotion might be a little heavy for me, but was pleasantly surprised. It's quite lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly. It didn't cause me to breakout and was still quite hydrating. I think that the price is reasonable considering that a little goes a long way. I also found that it provided a good base for makeup. Therefore I think this product would benefit most skin types (other than perhaps those with very dry skin) and I will definitely consider repurchasing it.
I love this fragrance-free moisturiser for my dry skin. It comes in a simple clear pump bottle so you can see the lotion’s yellow colour in all its glory. The pump packaging helps to dispense the perfect amount of product so there is no wastage.
It is a very light-weight moisturiser and just a little goes a long way. On application it absorbs beautifully into the skin and delivers much-needed moisture to my dry skin. My dry skin just drinks up the moisture which leaves my skin totally soft smooth and plumped up all day long. Since the formula of this moisturiser is silky and light-weight it wears well under makeup.
This moisturiser does just about everything except offering sun protection. Otherwise in terms of moisturising the skin it does its job efficiently and I would suggest dry skin types to try out this moisturiser as it helps to balance the skins moisture levels and strengthens skins barrier.
This moisturizer does what it says, it moisturizers dry skin, but the reason I didn’t give it 5 stars, for me, this is all it does. It doesn’t transform your skin, it just moisturises without irritation of any kind. The good I have to say about this moisturiser is that it does provide moisture to a dry or dry combination skin without oiliness of any kind. It sinks right in and does not leave a residue. It has no fragrance for those that are sensitive to fragrance. Overall I would recommend this product to someone that likes to use an active serum and just wants a light textured moisturiser to put on top. For this I highly recommend it, and this is how I use it.
The Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion is one of the few lotions I have repurchased because I love everything about it. The lotion is lightweight that absorbs onto my skin nicely without feeling sticky or greasy. It is hydrating and works well as a base before I apply foundation. Most important it is fragrance free which is a plus for me because I don’t like heavy scented skincare products.
This is an oldie but a goodie! There’s a reason Clinique’s Dramatically Different has been a best seller for decades.
I prefer this slightly richer formula to the gel as I have dry skin. The advantage of the lotion+ over the cream for me is that it feels light yet super hydrating, which is perfect for daytime wear. I feel like this lotion has a perfect blend of water attracting ingredients to make the skin the plump and oils to lock in the hydration and nourish the skin. This moisture doesn’t fade during the day, so my makeup doesn’t crack or get dry patches. I believe that it lives up to it’s claim of keeping more moisture in.
I also like that it contains urea, which cleanses dead skin. It means that I can use a chemical exfoliant less during the week to smooth my face, saving money and saving my face from redness.
I really like the simple and gentle formulation of this - it delivers a hydration hit to my skin without being heavy and clogging my pores. I really appreciate that I can read the ingredients list and know what they are. It having effective ingredients such as sweet almond oil, glycerin and urea means that it isn’t just marketing fluff that it’s effective, it really does work!
The packaging is a pump bottle with a metallic pump and lid. The bottle is sleek, classically designed, and functional. It’s a bottle that I am proud to display on my vanity. The pump function stops the lotion being oxidised by the air and getting bacteria into it - thank you Clinique!
This has been my go to moisturizer for years now. Its light consistency makes it perfect for every day use. I use it with the 3 step range from Clinique. I love that it doesn't contain any perfume, which makes it perfect for my sensitive skin. The 3 step range from Clinique changed my skin completely! I can only recommend it if you have problematic skin, the 3 step range has different products for every skin type. I complement the 3 step with the moisture surge intense cream and moisture surge overnight mask. Life savers!
Unlike its great promotion and hype, I found this to be equal to any other good moisturiser in the market. Not so fond of the funny smell, pros would be it hydrates your skin, gets absorbed quickly.
Cons - the hydration does not last too longer, I have found my dry patches on the skin come along after few hours.
This lotion is amazing for normal to dry skin! I have dry skin which is also prone to breakouts, which makes it very difficult for me to find the right lotion. If a lotion has too much oil in it, I break out, but without any oil or not enough hydration, my skin gets too dry. this lotion was perfect for me as it provided great hydration leaving my skin feeling plump, but also did not overwhelm my skin, causing breakouts. the only downside to this product is potentially the packaging as it gets a little bit difficult to get the lotion out through the pump towards the end, but other than that, its absolutely amazing.
This is my go-to everyday moisturiser. My mum got me onto this product when I was very young, and I have never looked back!
The product absorbs into your skin, so it doesn't leave you looking oily. The moisturiser leaves my skin feeling so smooth and hydrated all day.
There is no perfume added to this moisturiser, so it is great for sensitive skin like my own.
Definitely worth every cent!!
I didn't like this when I first tried it. I thought it was oily and slippery. After a few years I'm back using it and love it! Not too heavy and your skin does soak it up. Such a good base for makeup before putting on primer. The gel and lotion works the same for me.
I really like how there is no scent included. Scent isn't needed to make your skin feel amazing! I use about two squirts and just rub all over my face! It's smooth and just feels so natural on my face that, honestly, I forget it's there and just lather it on. So I actually use more than two squirts. Oops! What's good about this? No one can tell if you have any on in the first place! Just nude, natural and amazing!
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion is a product I’ve returned to time and time again over the years and I’ve found that the Lotion+ is great for my dry skin. The thinner consistency makes it easy to spread and it’s perfect when layering with other products. It has no fragrance which is prefer. I know there has been some criticism that there is no SPF in the Lotion+ but I like that I can layer my more drying SPF products over the top and it keeps my skin moist. Even though it’s suitable for dry skin,recently I’ve found that I need a little bit more moisture thanks to ducted heating and the winter air and a hydrating serum underneath the Lotion+ does the job nicely. I always use this with a serum, such as vitamin C or retinol,as it doesn’t have the active ingredients that really improve your skin but it does its job as a fantastic all-round moisturiser.
Developed by dermatologists
Affordable, especially because a little bit goes a long way
Easy to layer with other products, including SPF
Doesn’t contain a huge amount of active ingredients toimprove the skin
Not quite moisturising enough at times thanks to my dry skin
Contains mineral oil which some people don’t like
I have been using Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion intermittently for several years now.
This product comes in a bottle with a pump. I usually only use 1 pump for my face. It is yellow in colour, creamy in texture, and like all other clinique products does not have any scent to it.
I have been instructed by the counter salesgirl to apply this lotion after cleansing and toning. Interestingly it is recommended that you apply another moisturiser on top of the lotion. The Clinique salesgirl informed me that this lotion is not part of their moisturiser range. It is suppose to prepare the skin to absorb other products better. Anyway, due to this recommendation, i have never use this product as a moisturiser on its own. I tend to use it when my skin is dry and i want extra-hydration for my skin.
Someone may notice that this comes in a gel form as well. The difference between the gel and lotion is the consistency, the lotion is heavier and hence keeps the moisture in more, and more suitable for those with dry skin.
I like this new formulae of Dramatically Different Moisturiser.
I only need to do one pump of this moisturiser and it's enough for my whole face.
The texture is very light. When I spread it over my face, it's easily and quickly absorbed by my skin. My skin feels moisturised.
There isn't a fragrance so this will be great for people who prefer fragrance-free moisturiser.
This new formulae is more hydrating than its predecessor.
Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion+ is a good light moisturiser.
The Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ is a beautiful moisturiser that absorbs well into my skin without leaving an oily residue which is very important to me in summer as I live in a humid climate. Two pumps of this product over my face and neck and I find my skin look hydrated and plump.
I was addicted to this moisturiser when I was in my twenties. I think it's perfect for this age group. It's light and gentle and leaves your skin invigorated. I love the smell, its fresh and summery. It absorbs quickly into your skin and leaves your face feeling fresh and moisturised all day. It's not a heavy moisturiser and so now that I have fine lines and want to work on ageing skin I doesn't feel nourishing enough to be targeting these concerns. If you want a light and fresh moisturiser then I would highly recommend it.
