Classic moisturiser

Ange

This is the second bottle I am using of, I really enjoy it as it's really light texture but moisturising. I have combination skin type close to oily but some dry spots on my face, but so far, it does the job perfectly.

Most Helpful Criticism

A basic moisturiser

Bettina

This is a good basic moisturiser for everyday use. It is lightweight and moisturises the skin well which can be attributed to the gel based formula as opposed to a heavy cream. I doesn't have any fragrance or weird smells which I have found with other clinique products. The downside is that it is a little pricey for what is essentially a basic moisturiser for simple skin needs. Otherwise I'd totally stock up on it.
  1. Good basic moisturiser

    Rachel

    This moisturiser is good for moisturising - It doesn't have an odour, has a nice texture, not oily and does the job.

    However, there is also nothing special about it in terms of other skin concerns it targets! Suggest it for young teenage skin

  3. Classic Moisturiser

    Issi

    Really nothing to say but that this moisturiser is a classic and really does its job. Great lightweight formula that smooths out the skin without feeling too heavy. Really good for sensitive skin too and a great base for under sunscreen as well as under makeup! Would definitely recommend.

  5. Not Happy at All

    Imogen

    I bought this moisturiser expecting really good things but I found it hardly moisturised at all, I had to use another moisturiser or an oil on top as it was so light weight. Given the price point I was expecting much better
  6. Outstanding everyday moisturiser!

    Annie

    This moisturiser is amazing. I have oily skin prone to the occasional pimple, especially on my cheeks and forehead. This gel formulation is cooling on the skin and intensely hydrates without leaving my skin greasy. It hasn’t broken me out at all! You can use this under makeup easily without worrying about it being too heavy. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a lightweight moisturis...

  7. Oil free moisturiser

    Linda

    I love that this moisturiser is oil free as it plays well with my skin that tends toward the oily side. Despite this, it still hydrates my skin very well and the pump is very convenient too.
  8. Not for me

    Lanny

    Sadly this moisturiser is not for me. I normally have combination skin and thought this could be a nice option. Unfortunately, after applying it I experienced a burning sensation on my skin and I had to wash it off immediately.
  9. hydration

    Sue

    Used many bottles, it gives good hydration but doesn't help with anti-aging.
  10. THE BEST MOISTURISER!

    Jojo

    I have a combination skin and my T-zone is very oily during the day, but my cheeks are quite dry. I noticed that this moisturiser doesn't make my T-zone oily and leave my skin moist throughout the day! In addition, this product is fragrance-free and doesn't cause my skin to break out. Much love for this product! :)
  11. Great for oily skin

    Annie

    I love this, it is great for my oily skin i use it in the morning before i put on suncreen.
  12. Holy grail for combination skin!

    Kellie

    I have used this product for more years than I can count, and no matter how often I stray I always come back to it! Light and fresh but still nourishing, this product is perfect for oily/combination skin. Great for in the day, and with something heavier at night if needed.
  13. Lightweight and moisturising

    Bee

    I received this as a sample and love it! It's lightweight and great for oily skin. I have combination skin and use this as my daily moisturiser at the moment and have found it to leave my skin soft. Also because it's light coverage it doesn't give me any break outs. I will definitely consider purchasing this in the future.
  14. Old reliable

    Bonnie

    I always come back to this product. So light, absorbs well (I use the gel, found the lotion to be less absorbant). If my skin is dry, it drinks this up. If it’s oily, it controls it. Sits well under make up. Bottle lasts a long time!
  15. Staple moisturiser

    Kristen

    This has been a go-to moisturiser for me for a long time. It is so lightweight and sinks in quickly, while also leaving your skin hydrated. It's great for summer but in winter I do need something a bit thicker. Oily skin people will love this.
  16. Good

    Prabhjot

    This is a good moisturizer for oily skin and sensitive skin. Not heavy and no fragrance. The only problem is when wearing makeup I have to wait for longer than normal for this to soak into my skin otherwise my makeup sort of moves.
  17. Skin saving moisturiser!

    Lili

    I’ve tried so many moisturisers for my oily/combination 40 year old skin & I always end up wasting my money due to ensuing breakouts, redness & clogged pores. I started using Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel when it first came out years ago & I just repurchased another bottle. I keep coming back to it & it’s now my skincare staple; great under makeup & very hydrating. The gel is ...

    Ive tried the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising lotion one because that what I was recommend at the time but after trying the gel one I love it more. It does not have weird smell, non sticky and hydrating.
  19. Gentle, balanced moisture

    Petra

    This was the first moisturiser I ever used when I was a teenager and I never had a problem with it. I had heard it was good through a friends Mum who had only used this product for the last 20-30 years. Paired with the Clinique cleanser it does work well to keep skin clean and hydrated! I did find that with very dry skin like mine I need a richer formulation so have since moved to other products-...

  20. Good moisturiser

    Hayley

    Even though I have dry, sensitive skin, I decided to go for gel version instead of lotion as I am also suffering from rosacea. My doctor recommended me to find an oil-free moisturiser, so I thought this would be a good altrernative for me. Overall, it does not irritate my skin, but it also does not provide extra moisture. I use this gel then top it off with the Clinique moisture surge. This combin...

  22. Holy Grail Moisturiser!

    JM

    I've been using this moisturiser for a couple of years now and always find myself coming back to it. Especially on my oily/ combo skin, I find that it provides incredible hydration without feeling thick and sticky. I've tried the lotion formula before and found that it clogged my pores.

    It has the most beautiful texture that absorbs straight into your skin. I find that it keeps my ski...

  23. Such a nice lotion for combined dry skin

    Caroline

    I use it before sleep as the final step. It hydrates and would not lead to acnes or sth. It is light and can be absorbed quickly. Definitely love it!
  24. Love this moisturiser

    Kathleen

    this is a great moisturiser! its not to thick and doesn't feel greasy or heavy on the skin! i have sensitive skin as well and this doesn't leave me red!
  25. Hydrating and long lasting

    Holly

    Lovely moisturiser that works really well for my dry skin. The packaging is super easy to use and it lasts for so long. Would recommend
  26. Beautiful

    Juliet

    BEAUTIFUL moisturiser that I really liked. Didn’t clog my skin but deeply moisturised without feeling oily other years
  27. Ideal for summer

    Aline

    It is lightweight ideal for oily skin. Does not feel sticky and does not give pimples But in times that need a lot of hydration it is not enough, but in summer is my favorite.
  28. Great moisturiser for oily skin

    Sarah

    I have tried many different moisturisers but always come back to this one.
    I have oily/combo skin and this product deeply moisturises without making me greasy. Texture is lovely and it absorbs really well. Perfect base for makeup.
  29. Very good for oily skin

    Meryalbano

    I used to use the lotion when I was younger and had an oilier skin.
    Nowadays I think it does not moisturize my skin as I want to.

    Would recommend it for people with oily skin.
  30. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel Pump

    Zhaowei

    When I switched to Clinique I was a bit dubious due to the cost, but omg is it worth it! This moisturiser has changed my skin! It melts into your skin and makes it so so soft!
  31. Perfect for combo oily skin

    Madeleine

    Highly recommend if you have oilier skin! Lovely on the skin and soaks in beautifully.
  32. A nice universal facial moisturiser

    Eliza

    Not too greasy or thick, gentle on sensitive skin. A bit expensive however a little goes a long way
  33. 10 years + and still a favourite

    Kellie

    I started using this more than 10 years ago when I was still in high school and it’s still one of my favourite go-to products. No matter what I try, I always find myself coming back l this. The perfect, nourishing, light-weight moisturiser for oil-probe skin.
  34. My points for the non-comedogenic formulation

    Akanksha

    This is a great option for oily skin type people. Smooth texture and goes on easily, can act as a primer. I love it because Clinique has invested in a non-comedogenic formulation.

    A lot of people call it basic, it will surprise you that 100% of all moisturisers do just one thing-seal the natural moisture of your skin from escaping- that's it! Brands market their moisturisers as life-c...

    Kathleen

    this was my go to moisturizer for ages! great price and lasts a while! love the smell too nice natural smell!
  38. Light, natural smelling and very absorptive on sensitive skin

    Siena

    Have used this for years. Love how it actually absorbs into my skin and doesn't irritate it in any way like other brands. A tiny amount goes a long way so the bottle last a long time.
  39. Hot weather

    Ka

    This gel doesn't have a thick or heavy formula, so it's great for my summer skin (oily/ greasy). The gel sinks straight in and doesn't feel uncomfortable in hot weather
  40. Doesn't do much

    S_JM

    I have oily skin and while the gel texture is suitable, this honestly does nothing. There appear to be no active ingredients to hydrate the skin at all.
  41. good everyday mosturizer

    perfecting skin

    it is a good day time moisturizer i do sometimes use it at night as well but i am not greatly impressed by this product. i prefer a few other moisturizers over it. this one is not as hydrating as i thought it would be and as much hydration as i need.
  42. Never disappoints

    Laura

    Really good moisturiser that doesn't leave me too congested or break me out. Skin feels really moisturised afterwards
  43. Fine for day time

    Taylor

    I love this for under makeup use but definitely wouldn’t use every day as I find it’s not hydrating enough for my combo skin.
  44. Light moisturiser, great for oily skin

    Hannah

    I love my skin since using this moisturiser! It's light, doesn't leave a greasy feel on your skin and absorbs quickly leaving your skin feeling soft.
  45. A great moisturiser!

    Di

    A classic moisturiser! It provides the right amount of moisture, without leaving skin sticky or oily! Great under makeup!
  46. Great for oily skin

    I love this moisturising gel, it is perfect for my oily skin and leaves the skin feeling light and fresh.
  47. Great for oily skin

    Madee

    Lasts a long time, love the pump & love the consistency! Super good for oily skin.. feels like you are applying nothing
  48. Holy grail

    Honee

    Second bottle of this purchased, the first one lasted me over a yer. I have oily skin so i used to be scared of moisturising, however this changed my skincare routine. Sinks straight into the skin, non greasy and lightweight.
  49. My favourite mid price moisturiser

    Leah

    I love this and have been using it for three years now. Gel formula, scentless, sinks in immediately without greasiness. Excellent prep for foundation. Layers perfectly over serums of any kind - HA, Vit C, niacinimide, matrixyl, retinol.

    I’ve got dry skin but accidentally bought the one for oily combo and it STILL works. So I buy either one now (oily combo or dry combo - I actually t...

  50. Good moisturiser for the summer

    Ariel

    Light, hydrated moisturiser for the summer, however not hydrated enough for the winter. My T-zone would look flaky after using this when it's too cold and dry.
  51. Lovely product

    Kylie

    I used this for my combination skin as part of the 3 step method for many years. This is a light weight gel that quickly sinks into the skin without leaving an oily residue. Great product.
  52. I still prefer my embryolisse lait-creme concentre, but this is still good

    r

    Decided to purchase this when i was looking for a moisturiser for my oily skin. Read a lot of positive reviews hence decided to give this product a try! I bought this together with the other 2 product as a 3 step skincare for my oily skin. Overall, not too bad. Still am monitoring. I also use this before i apply my make-up. So far loving it! Does not make my face oilier than it already is^^
  53. Good for my oily skin

    Christy

    I really love this product. I have hormonal breakouts on my chin that can be aggravated by oily, thick moisturisers. This product keeps my skin hydrated, but not oily. Looks good under makeup and can be used day or night.
  54. Staple in my routine

    Bec

    I have been using this for years, and I love it so much I buy this in the jumbo size. I have oily combination skin and the Lotion + is too oily for me. This gel formula hydrates skin without the oiliness, the product absorbs quickly without any sticky feeling.
  55. Great value

    Watto

    I have used this product since i was in my teens - im 35 now! It is great for my mid range oily skin - it keeps it hydrated without the oil slick! The product absorbs easily into the skin, has a subtle smell and is great under makeup. the pump is an added extra making it hygienic to use!
  56. Clinique

    Tamika

    I have been using this moisturiser as I have oily skin, I have been using it with the facial cleanser and toner for skin type 3. My skin has never been clearer and the package assured within two days, it came with a free Tim Tam which I love and several free samples as I purchased several items at once! Would definitely recommend this product
  57. Love it

    YW

    I've been using this product for over 4 years and I am super in love and satisfy with it! It doesn't make my skin oily or cause any breakout at all. If you had an oily combination skin type, I would probably recommend you to use this moisturizing gel instead of the cream one. It absorbs and hydrates my skin really well.
  58. It's good but not incredible

    Grace

    This is a really nice moisturiser - it soaks in so easily and sits well under makeup. It's not amazingly hydrating though. I have dry skin and this just isn't enough for me.
  59. Absolutely love this not cruelty free though

    Katie

    This was amazing for my oily skin it absorbed so quickly and really made my skin feel super hydrated and soft. My only complaint with this product is that it didn't help my oily skin stay matte however if I had have continued with the range for combination oily skin I really think this would have had a chance of working and helping my skin
  60. Great everyday moisturiser

    Teresa

    I have oily combination skin so this gel formula is perfect for me. It’s not greasy at all and keeps my face moisturised!
  61. good

    Gabby

    the clinique moisturizer is probably one of my first moisturizer that i've ever tried. it does its job well and i know that i can always come back to this one if i ever run out of my other moisturizers. a great one!
  62. Perfect moisturiser especially for oily/combo skin

    Debby

    I use this product every night after serum, and using Moisture Surge hydrating supercharged concentrate every morning. I bought the product set 3 to give a try, and suit my skin since I have super sensitive skin. I have quite oily skin and this Moisturising Gel keeps it perfectly balanced, especially during winter. It is so great to have found a reliable product that keep my looking it's best.
  63. Really like it

    Holly

    Love this moisturiser! I really like the gel formula, it feels great on the skin. Very light and soaks in easily.
  64. Nice daytime moisturiser

    Madeleine

    I use this during the day and then my Clinique moisture surge at night and my skin has never looked and felt as nice as it does now. It doesn't get dry anymore and it always looked really refreshed and healthy
  65. Will be my longtime all day moisturiser

    Hanna

    I can see why this line has been so popular for so many years. I bought the gel version due to havin very oily combination skin. I use this under my makeup every morning. It glides on super easily and absorbs super quickly - you need very little. It's perfectly hydrating for my skin type. Can't believe the value for money!
  66. Nice everyday moisturiser.

    Elizabeth

    Great for everyday use. I have oily/combo skin and this moisturiser sinks in well into the skin and never leaves me oily or my skin feeling heavy. I mix it with my marula oil and it makes a really nice mix. You only need a tiny bit too, so the bottle lasts ages! Can definitely recommend as a great everyday moisturiser!
  67. Will always repruchase

    Laura

    A great gel for oily skin, lightweight and velvety. I try lots of moisturisers, but always end up back here.
  68. Dramatically different moisture gel

    Margo

    This is by the best clinique product I use this every day
    For the last 8 months I'm 58 and oily to combination skin it has no real scent not oily very smooth on my skin, always come back to it
  69. Holy grail moisturiser

    Ellen

    I love this moisturiser, I use it morning and night and have repurchased multiple times. I have combination skin and tend to get oiliness in my t-zone. This product hydrates my skin but never makes me oily. It makes my skin feel so soft and bouncy. Would definitely recommend to anyone with combination to oily skin, may not be enough hydration for dry skin types.
  70. Best moisturiser ever

    jessica

    I have combination skin it’s either too oily or too dry it used to be a nightmare. This moisturiser is a god send it’s petfect it’s light and absorbs into the skin instantly so you can easily wear under your makeup. I’ve been using the Clinique 3 step skin care for over a year now and everyone compliments how amazing my skin looks regularly now.

    26YO, combination w very oily t-zone.
    I have tried many "non-oily, non-comedogenic" moisturisers out there and this Clinique moisturising gel has been the only one thats truly not reacted to my VERY oily skin and clogged me up. It doesn't claim to do anything else than just moisturise - which is does well.

  72. Its just a moisturiser

    Alex

    I have combination skin (oily t-zone and normal everywhere else), I like this moisturiser as it does what it says and that's about it. I don't think there is anything special about it so I'm unsure if I would repurchase it due to the price point for a simple moisturiser.
  73. Basic but...

    Bec

    I really don't understand the hype with this mosturiser. There are so many more effective ones at a similar price point. My skin had no visible difference when using this. It's just a very basic product. However, it is obviously producing fantastic results for a lot of people so I cannot discount the effectiveness based on other reviews.
  74. Smooth Lightweight Moisturizer

    Jana

    This product is absolutely wonderful!

    I have combination skin and am prone to breakouts along my jawline if a product is too heavy. Also, most moisturizers leave me looking a little shiny. This one fits the bill - it's lightweight, non-greasy and matte.

    I wear this every day and it is perfect for under foundation with or without primer. It doesn't make your skin shiny ha...

  76. Great for oily skin

    Serena

    Love this moisturiser for everyday. Goes well under makeup and never leaves my skin feeling oily. The gel formula is light and perfect for oily skin, however i did not find it to be suitable for my skin during winter. Overall the product is great and I would recommend it to anyone with normal-oily skin.
  77. Very good Moisturiser

    Tegan

    I have normal/dehydrated skin and i find this Moisturiser to be very nice. It is a good alternative to the Clinique Moisture Surge range, as you receive more product for less money. However, although it is nice, I do find that it doesn't absorb into the skin as intensely as the Moisture Surge range, and I do find myself preferring other Clinique Moisturisers over this one.
  78. Best ever moisturiser

    Jaime

    This is a great moisturiser! It leaves your skin feeling soft, but not greasy. It's a great base for makeup. The only downside is that it lacks SPF.
  79. Life Changer

    Frankie

    This is the absolute Holy Grail moisturiser for oily skin!

    You only need the smallest amount of product, the it soaks in nearly immediately and leaves the skin soft, smoove and suprisingly silky!

    This makes a HUGE difference to the quality and longevity of my makeup (regardless of which primer)
  80. As good as its always been

    Maryke

    This moisturizer is amazing in its gel form. Glides on smoothly and I love that it is not greasy and oily. I am in my sixties but still have combination skin. So many creams still make me break out and make me feel like I am wearing a slick of oil on my face especially in the summer months. I am not sure why I ever stopped using this iconic cream and I am sorry that I did in hindsight. This will...

  81. Decent moisturiser for oily skin

    Vanessa

    I have normal skin and I find this moisturiser gives me just the right amount of hydration I need during the day. I'd use something more rich at night (except during very hot summer days). I'd say this is a decent moisturiser but definitely not mind blowing.
  82. AMAZING!!

    Aimee

    I recently bought this cream and within two days of using it my skin feels amazing! I have an oily T-zone and dry skin so it's a bit hard to find a good match for my skin, but this product is absolutely amazing and I would defiantly recommend it!
  83. All time favourite!

    Jane

    Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel has been my go-to moisturiser and primer for five years. I am prone to breakouts, but have had no issues with this product.

    What makes this moisturiser a fantastic primer is it's lightweight formula, which doesn't clog my pores or make my skin look oily.
