My 6¢: I have used Clinique cleansing products over the years to keep my skin clean and clear but never until this product did I feel compelled to write about them. The Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion was part of my beauty regime for some time but to be honest I was never a huge fan of the lotion. I never found it to be incredibly moisturizing and I’m not fond of it’s scent – it reminded me too much of crude oil.
I feel completely different about the Dramatically Different Moisturizing cream however.
Last summer while strolling through Sephora and I happened upon a new product. The Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream. I was immediately curious and decided to give it a try on my hand. Impressed by the scent (smells nothing like the lotion, in fact it is fragrance free), texture and moisturizing properties, I left Sephora some $18 poorer.
Now that I have been using it for almost a year (and I have repurchased it once already) I can tell you that I love this moisturizer. Why you ask?
Why I Love the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream
- Texture – This cream is light and is satiny to the touch. It glides on effortlessly and absorbs within a few seconds. I hate moisturizers that have a lot of ‘drag’ and take forever to work into your skin. This moisturizer doesn’t have drag.
- Super moisturizing – This is my right hand beauty product for the incredibly dry winter months. I no longer experience dry patches along the bridge of my nose during winter thanks to this cream. The Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream leaves my skin moisturized for hours.
- Not too thick, heavy or excessively greasy – The Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream is thick but not heavy or greasy. I thought it would be too heavy for hot climates but on a recent vacation in the tropics I was able to use this under my foundation without resembling a grease monkey.
- Relatively inexpensive – When you compare the price point on the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream to other moisturizers in it’s league, the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream won’t break the bank.
For my combination skin, the emollients in the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream do a great job of keeping my skin moisturized, smooth and soft. I don’t normally suffer from excessively dry skin but if you do you and are looking for a moisturizer, you might want to consider the Dramatically Different Moisturizing cream by Clinique.
