As I have gotten older my skin has gotten more and more dry. After years of oily skin it has been an adjustment. Since finding this product though my skin has been very ‘normal’. I use it as a booster under another moisturiser morning and night and I notice the difference if I happen to skip this step. I also love tapping a bit of this gel around my eyes if they are feeling dry or tired. My skins texture feels a lot smoother when I use this and is just generally better behaved. You don’t need a lot so I think it’s really good value for money. I do find it a bit annoying that you can’t fully use up the large bottle as the pump doesn’t reach down to the bottom and due to the shape of the bottle you can’t take the lid off and pour the rest out, it gets stuck in the corners. This is the only draw back though and I love it so much I will forgive it this.

Not really the right product for my skin
I love the way this product looks, so I probably just ended up buying it for that reason. It feels very refreshing, however it isn't moisturising enough for my slightly dry skin. I have been layering it with another moisturiser, which works quite well as it's quickly absorbed, but probably won't buy again. It does feel just a little sticky too when applying but settles in quickly and becomes unnoticeable. Kind of interesting and different but not exactly my cup of tea.
Good for acne proneI can only use light moisturiser otherwise I get breakouts so I was excited to try this product. It gives me an okay level of moisture and it gets absorbed pretty quickly. No breakouts whatsoever. It works well during summer but during winter it’s not moisturising enough for me.
Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly 125mlIt's my first choice when choosing moisturizers as in winter my skin gets extremely dry and in summer, my skin tends to get oily so this leaves my skin hydrated and glowing in all seasons.
Like itI like this product although it isn’t as moisturising as I’d like it to be so I always use another moisturiser on top

DryingVery sticky to use, not a pleasant feel on the skin. I have oily combination skin, I find it stings a little when applied and is drying. My skin tends to produce more oil after application.

Lovely textureI really loved the jelly texture of this moisturiser, it was lightweight but hydrating and a little goes a long way! For me personally, I needed something a little more hydrating but overall I really liked this moisturiser. Didn't react with my sensitive skin and would recommend to others
Pleasantly surprisedI'm pleasantly surprised that this Hydrating Jelly is from Clinique, it is such a departure from all of Clinique other products, particularly the ones that they are well known for. This Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly works really well with my skin in summer as it's lightweight, but I'm not sure how hydrating this gel will be when winter comes around. I plan to repurchase this Hydrating Jelly as it works well in summer with my skin.
Incredibly Lightweight and MoisturisingThis is a jelly like texture and very moisturising. I've been having breakouts lately and this has helped me calm my skin, and at the same time it hasn't dried me out. It's perfect because I always wear an SPF which is a bit heavier than moisturiser so this also makes a perfect base.
Not for dry/combination skin in cooler monthsClinique says that this product is for all skin types and while my dry/combination skin liked it over summer, it's leaves my cheeks feeling dry in cooler months. Use a hydrating serum underneath it for the cooler months if you insist on using this and have the same skin type.
For normal to oily skin types, this is amazing all year round!
Super light weightThis is a super lightweight formulation and I love the jelly consistency! It's light and locks in hydration. It's not enough to use at night or in very dry skin/dry conditions. I use it in conjunction with the korean 7 step method (7 layers of hydrating toners and then a moisturiser) in order to lock in moisture. Because it's so lightweight it sits really well under makeup. Highly recommend.
Summer Must HaveGreat product for summer time. I have oily combo skin and this is prefect for me. Very comparable to the Clinique dramatically different moisturising gel. Keeps my skin hydrated without any heavy oily feeling.
Big fan of thisI used to use the old school Dramatically different back in the days of the 3 step routine, so i've been really keen to try Clinique's offering in a sea of k-beauty inspired products. I really love the consistency of this, it sinks quickly into the skin and doesn't feel heavy, gives a plump and matte look to the skin. it goes well under makeup if given time to absorb properly. Great for day time use, would probably wear under a heavier moisturiser at night if you have dehydrated skin
Not for meNot moisturising enough for my skin. Probably more suited for oily skin types. It does absorb well, and doesn't have much of a fragrance which is good.
Decent hydrating serumMy skin is on the drier side so I used this as more of a serum before moisturising. I did like it and would probably use again! nice and light but definitely helps with flakiness.
A little goes a long way.You only need one pump to help moisturise your face. Definitely helps if you use your every day moisturiser after as well as it locks in the hydrating gel.
StickyI'm not a fan, the gel is very thick and when its dried its sticky.
I have applied foundation on after with my hands and feel like the gel rubs off like an eraser.
Super hydrationSuper hydrating but not heavy or greasy, love it!
If you don’t like that traditional moisturiser feeling which can leave your skin greasy, try this!
A big drink for your skin
A nice alternative to heavier moisturisersThe jelly texture of this moisturiser is really nice and cooling and it dries quickly. I like that it feels so lightweight and not clogging at all.
My partner who is usually very resistant to using any kind of skincare really likes this, because it leaves no residue on the skin.
As someone with oily skin that is easily triggered into hyperdrive, it is nice to give my skin a break from the richer creams and oils.
OkayIt’s an okay moisturiser. I won’t repurchase
Not as hydrating as I like.I’m very unsure about this product, due to the jelly like consistency, absorbs fast into the skin, however it leaves a sticky feeling. I haven’t noticed any difference in regards to hydration, my skin looks the same. It seems to leave a matte appearance so it might be ideal for Oily combination complexions, I find it doesn’t break me out after use. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this product as it doesn’t seem to hydrate the skin like it claims to.
Replaced my moisturiserI love this product! It's quick drying, light and super hydrating. I have completed ditched my daily moisturise for this gel!
OKPerformes just like a normal moisturiser. Nothing amazing. Bit gimicky because of the jelly feeling which I assume is the selling point for some. Kind of feels like aloe vera gel.
Didn't Notice ImprovementThe Clinique sermum didn't stack up to some of it's hydrating gel competitors.
I have oily/dehydrated skin and usually use a hydrating gel/serum after derma rolling my skin. I didn't notice any changes in my skin - my skin did not even seem more hydrated.
I think there's much more effective alternatives that have visible results.
I haven't noticed an effect as of yetI have dry to normal skin and brought this thinking it would add hydration to my morning/evening skincare routine. So far, I haven't noticed anything sensational about it but definitely does add hydration to the skin (just does not last long enough for me).
Perfect for summerGreat product for summer time. I have oily combo skin and this is prefect for me. Very comparable to the Clinique dramatically different moisturising gel. Keeps my skin hydrated without any heavy oily feeling.
Lightweight and Hydrating!I have problem and very dry skin apart from my t-zone which during the day can get quite oily, I was drawn to this product as its anti pollution and hydrating and I am not disappointed! Its so lightweight and absorbs really quickly but at the same time it really does hydrate but not so much as my t-zone goes shiny not to mention the feel of the jelly is so cooling and feels amazing! It hasn't caused any breakouts or irritation which is a massive plus, It's become my daily moisturiser .
Not quite sure about this oneI am a big fan of the gel version and have used it for years on my extremely oily and acne prone skin. Since it did not really keep me matte, I was super excited to see this even lighter version come out. I have been using it for around 2 months now and I must say that I am a bit on the fence with it. I love the look of it, the clear jelly and the pump on the bottle are great and the product itself is very light, almost water-like. However, I have not seen any positive difference in my skin since starting to use this and I don't really want to believe this is breaking me out but I haven't had a clear skin day since I started using it and see no improvement on the way. I think I'll use the bottle up but I'll then go back to the gel.
Perfect!I have really dry skin, and using the Clinique AntiBelmish Solutions Bar means I need a decent moisturizer....which is THIS!
Not only is it super hydrating, it absorbs in next to no time. I use this with The Ordinary Niamincide at night followed by Granactive 2% Retinol Emulsion, and I always wake up with glowing skin. This is also fantastic to use before a decent primer (I also use The Ordinary for that).
Can't recommend this enough to those with dry and acne prone skin!
Great moisturizerThis worked well for my problematic, oily skin and provided the right amount of hydration. In the winter I'll probably have to add another layer of serum underneath this moisturiser but for now, it works perfectly well to hydrate my skin. Love that the ingredients are nice and simple too- it didn't make me break out.
UnsureI received a sample size of this product to try and whilst i do like this product, it’s hard to know if it’s living up to it’s anti pollution claims. It feels nice on the skin but I think I prefer the Dramatically different moisturiser.
Not very hydratingWhile this is a lightweight formula that absorbs into the skin very quickly, I didn't find this particularly hydrating. This is nowhere near as good as the original Dramatically Different Hydrating lotion.
Surprisingly goodAfter being disappointed with the discontinued moisture surge- extended relief, I'm glad I gave this product a go! I had previously tried the normal dramatically different moisturiser, but didn't find it was hydrating enough for my skin. This jelly however, is super lightweight and great for dry-normal skin, though if you have extremely dry skin you may wish to add a serum before hand
works for oily skinnot super hydrating but its lightweight
Not hydratingI’m 30 and have skin that’s lately prone to breakouts combined with that it easily dries out. I received this as a sample and used it one evening before bed. Did not try it a second time as I woke up and my skin looked just...not nice at all. I have used Alpha H products over the last few months and become accustomed to my skin looking wonderful each morning. Not after using this Clinique product. I looked dry, my skin looked unusually uneven and just generally as if I hadn’t looked after my skin at all for ages.
Good for oily skinMy skin feels repaired after use since I'm no longer breaking out; it's helping my acne scars heal faster without the oily irritation most hydrating products cause. My skin feels bare, fresh and smooth when I wear it, which I love! It gives me the after effects I might receive from rinsing off a Moisturizing mask. Although it's a wonderful stand alone hydrator, I prefer it with Clinique's system for Combination Oily to Oily skin.
HydratingWhile i do like this product, i do not love it as much as the Dramatically different moisturiser. It is hard to tell if it lives up to its claims of blocking pollution - i didnt find my skin to be any less irritated or blemish prone while using it. It does a good job of hydrating, but i would say that after the 8 hour mark, my skin felt tired and like it needed to be moisturised again.
Nice consistency but horrible smell!I received a small sample of this with an order and was really excited as I have wanted to try it for a while. I have very dry skin and this soaked in really quickly. The sample didn't contain enough for me to tell if it hydrates my skin, but I did love the gel consistency. My only issue was that it has a terrible smell! Not sure if I got a bad batch but it smelt so strongly of house paint which I found really off putting.
I will probably purchase the 50ml tube to give it a proper go (as I love Clinique products) and see if it works for me. Hopefully it wont smell the same!
Water based found dryingI have combination to dry skin and I found this product did not suit my skin at all. The jelly absorbs well but leaves my skin feeling super rubbery and dry. I have to apply the dramatically different lotion after to actually moisturise. Clinique doesn’t explain what skin type this jelly if for, but I wouldn’t use it again on winter skin. it is super lightweight and might be appropriate for summmer use
so light!I really like how lightweight this is, perfect for under makeup so it doesn't feel too heavy
AwesomeI purchased this as soon as it was released by Clinique. They have really been upping their moisturiser game lately! Gone are the mineral-oil based moisturisers that used to mess up my skin, and instead they've released a bunch of fantastic products over the last couple of years. I bought this ahead of summer when my skin turns into a greasy mess, but still needs some hydration.
feels weird putting on but absorbs welli received a few samples for this product. it is very watery based and feels jelly putting on but after a while, it sat nicely on my skin and i went about my day with no issues. can't say i saw a major difference or improvement in my skin but it didn't make it oily or give me any irritation which i'm prone to as i have sensitive skin.
