Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

Clinique’s best-selling products include the very popular Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion which also has beauty accolades to its name. Clinique has cleverly engineered this moisturiser in two forms to suit different skin types. The Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is geared towards skin types 1 & 2 aka very dry/dry and dry to combination. On the other hand, the Dramatically Different Gel formula is for oily and combination oily aka skin types 3 & 4.

I have normal to combination skin type but when I received this lotion I was really excited.  It is a lightweight easily absorbed formula that provides moisture and strength to your skin. It promises all day hydration and leaves your skin looking healthier.

I incorporated the lotion straight away in my skincare routine, using it as a night cream first then a day cream, with the addition of SPF. The lotion is indeed a lightweight formula and I found that it easily sunk into my skin and layers well on top of my serums.

It has a creamy texture and a rich moisturising formula, which is a little too much for my skin type so I tend to use a little amount - 1 pump for my face and neck. The result was I woke up to really soft and moisturised skin.

I prefer to use this as a night cream for my skin type only because this formula is very rich- which I understand as this is for drier skin types and also because to doesn’t have added SPF (again I understand this as they recommend you use it twice daily and you don’t need SPF for night time). I don’t think the lotion is oily or greasy but I find when I use too much of it, it tends to look oily on my skin.

I have fallen in love with this product. Bear in mind I have the formula for very dry to drier skin types yet I think the moisturiser worked well for my skin. It is 100% fragrance free so it doesn’t have the most pleasant scent, however it’s effective for moisture and hydration.

A little goes a long way with this moisturiser, something I don’t expect from a lotion
(in my experience lotions tend to have less moisture for my skin type) but the rich formula makes this possible. Is the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion worth the hype? Yes it is!

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is priced at £18.00.
