It's okay... - 15-01-2019 by

I'm using this moisturiser currently and probably wont be purchasing again. It does a good job at hydrating however when you put it on it seems quite thick as if you can't rub it in for long before it settles. I prefer something more light and soothing.

good day time mosturizer - 15-01-2019 by

i got it as a sample, but this is going to be my next new day time moisturizer. it keeps my skin hydrated for the day and did not break my skin out

Made my skin feel a little oily - 08-01-2019 by

I’ve been applying this nightly before bed. It’s really made my skin feel moisturised and helped all my dry patches of skin. It’s quite thick when applied but soaks in well. I do find my skin feels oily in the morning when I wake up though.

Not bad - 08-01-2019 by

This moisturiser is nice and light on the skin and didn’t cause any breakouts, but I really didn’t see anything special in my skin after using it. I tried the smaller size and unfortunately won’t purchase the full size as it’s quite expensive and isn’t anything overly amazing!

Just a normal moisturiser - 02-01-2019 by

I love Clinique - especially their Moisture Surge line - and this moisturiser is just average to me. It's lightweight and feels nice on the skin, however I don't notice anything different after using the product in comparison to their moisture surge line or other brands, like Avene. On evenings when the humidity is high, it starts to go sticky on my skin. I have normal to slightly oily skin in my T zone. For the price, I would look elsewhere.

Good moisturiser - 02-01-2019 by

It's hydrates all day and quick to absorb.

Good - 02-01-2019 by

This is a good basic moisturiser for face and neck. Seems to keep my skin feeling moisturised the next day but cant say I notice anything so dramatic that I would purchase it again.

Great - 01-01-2019 by

This a a great moisturiser. I use it daily in the morning

Amazing - 01-01-2019 by

This is an amazing moisturiser that leaves my skin hydrated, without the heavy feeling

Moisturising - 31-12-2018 by

Moisturising. Little expensive though for what it is.

Very hydrating - 24-12-2018 by

Very hydrating and lasts all day. Clinique skincare in general is very high quality in my opinion. I bought this in a tax and duty free store for much less than this price but even for this price it is worth it.

Love! - 20-12-2018 by

This is such a nice lightweight yet creamy moisturiser. I like to alternate this through the week with other moisturisers but could be used every day.

Excellent! - 17-12-2018 by

Totally moisturising! Not too heavy on the skin. Have gone through 2 bottles and I will re purchase!

Basic moisturiser - 12-12-2018 by

Nice basic face moisturiser. It is very hydrating. Not sure I would spend that much on it again because I dont notice any dramatic differences with it - but great as just a daily moisturiser morning or night.

Good everyday moisturiser - 12-12-2018 by

This is a good everyday moisturiser, its light and sits well under makeup. You get a fairly generous size for the price point. I have normal/combination skin and it suits me well, if you had very dry skin it might not be nourishing enough for you.

Love!!! - 12-12-2018 by

I have been using this moisturiser for over 5 years.
As a person with extremely sensitive skin and many allergies it is one of the very few products that doesn’t give me any kind of reaction and is super hydrating while still being lightweight.

Good - 10-12-2018 by

This is a GOOD moisturizing lotion - great for face and neck. But im not convinced its worth the price so not sure I would re-purchase.

A classic! - 05-12-2018 by

A classic moisturiser! I have been using this product off and on for almost 20 years - and it stands the test of time! It provides the right amount of moisture, without leaving skin sticky or oily!

Moisturizing - 26-11-2018 by

I'm a bit undecided on this product. I purchased it when I heard heaps of good things about it but once I received it I didn't particular think it was that amazing. Sure it is moisturizing and I do still use it occasionally but for the price I cant justify why it costs that much. Didn't notice anything too dramatic with it. I just use it now on my neck and shoulders as a moisturiser as I have others for my face. Not sure I would re-purchase personally but I think this would be really great for someone with really DRY skin.

Cult Favourite! - 26-11-2018 by

Can never go wrong with this cream; I always have some at home on hand as I know I can always count on it to leave my skin feeling great! It’s especially good when my skin is stressed or irritated

for normal to dry skin - 21-11-2018 by

can make your skin slightly oily but very hydrating

Excellent for Dry Skin!! - 19-11-2018 by

This was fabulous (as a part of the 3-step) in helping combat my dry skin patches, and feels so lovely and light on!

Good but not great - 19-11-2018 by

Good for moisturizing but very average considering the price. It is very hydrating but I have other moisturizers that work similar or better. Not sure I would re-purchase.

Very moisturising yet lightweight - 16-11-2018 by

I have extremely oily skin which is the only reason I did not give this product more stars. I prefer the gel or jelly version. However this is not to say this is a bad product. I love that it comes with a pump and there is a decent amount of product in there too. It spreads and absorbs into the skin very easily and moisturises deeply. For my oily skin it is a bit too heavy but I highly recommend it to normal to dry skin types.

Great for combination/oily skin - 15-11-2018 by

I find this moisturizer perfect for summer when you don't need anything too thick and rich. It is a great every day product but you may need a serum under or a richer cream for summer nights in air conditioning or in winter.

Does the job! - 09-11-2018 by

This moisturiser is so nice and I can see it slightly smoothing the lines on my face. It's not the best moisturiser I have but it is nice

not hydrating enough for my dry skin - 07-11-2018 by

this doesn't seem to do anything for my skin. I prefer their moisture surge range

A great moisturiser - 05-11-2018 by

I like this moisturizer alot, It is a great product for younger skin (below 30). It is nourishing and not oily. Looks great under makeup.

A great moisturiser - 05-11-2018 by

I like this moisturizer alot, It is a great product for younger skin (below 30). It is nourishing and not oily. Looks great under makeup.

Ok - 05-11-2018 by

Is like any other regular moisturiser, didn’t really wow me. Would not repurchase but it goes on well and absorbs quickly. I have oily skin and I found it kept it slightly mattified through the day.

Unsure - 05-11-2018 by

I was a bit unsure of this product - I purchased it in the full size because I had heard good things about it but its very average for the price of it. I do think its very moisturizing but have found better products for similar cost. It tends to be one of those products I occasionally will use but not regularly.

Great product - 26-10-2018 by

This mouisturiser is so light and refreshing, i use it morning and night right before bed and prior to applying my make up.

It doesnt leave yor face feeling oily or heavy i have tried a range of face mouisturisers and this one is by far my go to.

Just not quite - 24-10-2018 by

I bought this just wanting a simple moisturizer, and it is a simple moisturizer but its just not a good one. I really didn't notice a difference, good or bad.

Not for me - but most others love it ! - 24-10-2018 by

Unfortunately, for whatever reason, this moisturiser just isn't for me. It didn't do anything terrible (i.e. it didn't cause any reaction or break me out) but it didn't offer the surge of moisture I was hoping for either (for reference I have normal/combo skin, and can be prone to dry patches at times). I prefer Estee Lauder Hydrationist, it gives a surge of moisture without being thick or breaking me out (there is one for combo skin I believe).

Great for oily skin, but not great under makeup - 24-10-2018 by

I purchased this after having it recommended to me highly. The consistency is lovely, the moisturiser goes on incredibly light weight and is not heavy or greasy by any means (which was exactly what I was after). However I don't find that it adds quite enough moisture for my combination skin. Additionally, due to the fact that it contains silicones, it tends to seperate my makeup when wearing many of my favourite products as they are water based.

This product didn't end up being ideal for me, but it would be incredible for someone with oily skin who wears a silicone based foundation.

Effective moisturiser - 23-10-2018 by

This moisturiser is effective on my dry skin, it's not my favourite but I have used it a few times as its often come as a gift with purchase.

Love this product - 23-10-2018 by

I've been using this lotion for years. I have wandered off a few times but always come back. I have mature skin and it ticks all the boxes, even around the eye area

It's good...but not great - 23-10-2018 by

I know this is an iconic product, and I definitely used it a great deal in my 20s, but I don't feel as though this has enough anti-ageing properties to continue with it now I am in my 40s. It's a good consistency and it wears very well under makeup, but I feel like I need more "active" ingredients in my moisturisers these days.

VERY hydrating - 22-10-2018 by

this is great for the winter as it deeply hydrates your skin, a little goes a long way and this lasts forever too I'm only half way through and I've had it for almost a year

Feels amazing - 19-10-2018 by

Really really nice on the skin. Soothes and feels more luxurious than the pricepoint would suggest

Not for Oily Skin! - 19-10-2018 by

I can picture this product being amazing for those with super dry skin but I suffer from a very oily T-zone and this just made me X10 shinier. Not for me nor other with super oily skin, way too thick and doesn't absorb too well. However, because of it's thick nature I have been using it on mine and my partner's tattoos to help keep the integrity of the colour after a beating from the sun. Love the product for this purpose but not my oily face!

An oldie but a goodie - 18-10-2018 by

This was the first non-drug store moisturiser I ever owned - about twenty years ago it would have been when I was gifted my very first glass bottle! It is iconic, this one.
I've got combination skin, which can get a bit dry in winter. As one of the heavier lotions, I still reach for this moisturiser on days when my skin feels particularly parched and sometimes for around the eyes as a mask. It's a highly-moisturising emollient lotion in a good pump bottle (plastic these days) - there's nothing particularly remarkable about it, as it is a fairly basic formulation but it's a good reliable moisturiser. It feels a little heavy on the skin, but not uncomfortably so. If you had dry skin and didn't need any other benefits from it (i.e. if you were using serums that covered you for anti-aging, etc.), then this would be a great choice.

No smell and just work as it says - 11-10-2018 by

I bought this product as my skin is very dry in winter and despite using other moisturising creme it will be dull, dry and flaky soon after use. I have bought this product after my friend's recommendation. This product proved her right as well as itself. it gives my face a good amount of moisture which stays under my make up for long. will definitely recommend this to all.

Okay - 11-10-2018 by

Not my favourite moisturiser but a good everyday one for normal to dry skin. Easy pump action as well and lasts a long time

using it for 20 years - 03-10-2018 by

I have been faithful to this brand, in particular to this cream for 20 years. I love that it isn't overly perfumed and not heavy, not too light... just right. will always keep buying it.

Great stuff - 27-09-2018 by

I received a sample of this with an adore beauty purchase and fell in love. It's hydrating without being too oily. Lovely velvety texture and not scented. Perfect stuff.

great for combo skin - 24-09-2018 by

super hydrating without being too oily

Great moisturiser for all - 19-09-2018 by

This is such a wonderful face moisturiser. It is not heavy on the skin and there is a version to suit everyone.

Cult status! - 11-09-2018 by

I just love this stuff! It is wonderful for my dry skin and make it look and feel well hydrated without being the slightest greasy. It's my understanding that if you have less than dry skin, you might want to try the gel formula instead of the lotion.

Better suited for dry skin - 06-09-2018 by

I bought this product after reading all the great reviews but it did not suit my skin type. The lotion+ was too rich for my oily combo skin (I’m now using the gel version instead). I gave this to a friend with dry skin, it worked great for her.

Good product but not great - 06-09-2018 by

I've been using this product for a new months and its a good moisturizing lotion but its not amazing for the price. Just seems like a regular use moisturizer. It does leave the skin smooth but can also be a little oily. I tend to chose other products over this now.

Good basic - 03-09-2018 by

Good simple moisturiser, but I'm always left wanting more from it and have to layer additional serums for other benefits like antioxidants.

A great day moisturiser - 30-08-2018 by

A great lightweight non oily daily moisturizer. Good under makeup. Absorbs easily into skin. It is a good moisturizer and great for problematic skin. Trusted and tested brand.

Good moisturiser - 27-08-2018 by

This is a good moisturiser however there are other comparable products for a cheaper price. The product does however last a long time.

Nice but not overly moisturizing - 27-08-2018 by

I like this moisteriser if I want something light under my foundation but I don't find this moisterising enough to use morning and night without anything else

Great Moisturiser! - 23-08-2018 by

This is very moisturising and helps my dry skin especially in Winter:)

Still the best! - 23-08-2018 by

I've been using this moisturiser since I was a preteen! It's seriously the best, most classic daywear lotion. I knocked down a star because I think it's a bit overpriced (it's a bit cheaper in the states where I grew up), but I still think its a wonderful standby. It works for pretty much everyone.

Great day moisturiser! - 22-08-2018 by

I love this moisturiser! It's lightweight and soaks into the skin really nicely. I use it in the mornings and it goes great under makeup. I have dry skin and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. Would recommend!

So moisturising - 20-08-2018 by

My mum has always used this and she let me try it and I understand why!! SO moisturising and makes such a difference on dry skin as my face is very dry and I see a noticeable difference when I use this

Amazing - 17-08-2018 by

The best moisturiser hands down. Moisturises my skin without making my skin feel clogged or oily. And a little bit goes a long way.

The original and the best - 17-08-2018 by

I have been using this moisturiser since I can remember, and my mum also uses the same. It is so soft and doesn't irritate the skin at all. One of the best Clinique products out there. A long time favourite.

Lightweight and Longlasting - 15-08-2018 by

My family has been using this moisturiser for years and years and it lasts such a long time with four of us using it. It is very lightweight on the skin and you do not need a lot of product. Perfect for application under sunscreens, makeup etc. Sometimes can make skin feel slightly oily around the t- zone in comparison to Clinique's moisture surge lotions.

A good moisturiser - 13-08-2018 by

I first started using this moisturizer over ten years ago, it is a classic. It is moisturizing, but not oily, good under makeup and doesnt cause me to break out.

Love - 07-08-2018 by

Great for sensitive skin! Not too oily, just perfect for a moisturiser. I use this everyday :)

Great moisturiser - 07-08-2018 by

Really nice moisturiser - it makes my skin nice and soft. Would definitely recommend

Great moisturiser - 06-08-2018 by

This is one of my regular moisturiserers. I have very dry and sensitive skin and was seeking a new moisturiser to alleviate this issue and found this one to be awesome. Great product absorption and little residue left over which love. Will definitely continue use.

Really like it - 06-08-2018 by

Lovely moisturiser. It's great for everyday use and a good price considering the bottle lasts for a long time. Would recommend

Good but not enough for dry skin - 01-08-2018 by

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.

Leaves skin feeling CLEAN - 31-07-2018 by

This moisturiser is really great. I wake up and my skin still feels fresh and clean after a full nights sleep. It doesn't quite do enough for my skin in winter but in the warmer months it is amazing.

My Go To Moisturizer - 30-07-2018 by

I've been using this product for 20+ years!
This light weight moisturizer soaks quickly into the skin, and is non greasy.
Perfect for my dry sensitive skin. I haven't found another face moisturizer that doesn't aggravate my skin in some way.
So I stick to what I know and what works!

Great basic moisturiser - 30-07-2018 by

I find this a good moisturiser to have in my collection, it’s a good basic moisturiser, great to use over serums. Would be a bit plain to use on its own for every day use, but rotated with other products it has its place. I find it great value.

Okay but can find better - 25-07-2018 by

I used this product for a little while and it was better than no moisterised but I have definitely found better and considering the price, I probably wouldn't re purchase

Good for winter months - 12-07-2018 by

In summer, this is a bit rich for my combination skin and can make my T-zone oily. However in winter months, this is great for my skin, even for daytime use under makeup. I have used this moisturiser for a long-haul international flight, and it really helped my skin stay moisturised.

best moisteriser - 12-07-2018 by

this moisteriser is really great under foundation. it isn't oily or thick so doesn't make foundation slide on top. amazing as a first base for foundation, i use it every day!

Good but not great - 09-07-2018 by

Got this because my moisturiser was running out and needed something quickly. It’s ok- provides good moisture but leaves my skin feeling a weird texture. I use under makeup if I need a bit of a boost but don’t use daily anymore.

Great for Combination Skin type - 05-07-2018 by

A great lightweight moisturiser that is quickly absorbed into the skin and leaves you feeling hydrated but not oily. Great for combination skin type

Basic Moisturiser - 05-07-2018 by

This is a good moisturiser for those who don't want to specifically target skin concerns other than dryness. Its oil based so it would not be good for someone with breakout prone/oily skin. Otherwise it does the job as a basic moisturiser, but I wouldn't repurchase.

HOLY GRAIL FOR DRY SKIN - 28-06-2018 by

This is hands down my favourite moisturiser EVER! I have been using it for over 2 years and I can attest that no skincare product has stayed a part of my routine for that long. It combats dryness wonderfully and it is smooth and sinks in very well while not being greasy.

Not great - 26-06-2018 by

This moisturiser isn’t one id recommend - sinks into skin quite quickly but doesn’t seem to do much. Would use as a light weight moisturiser in summer, but that’s it

Bye dry skin - 25-06-2018 by

I use this product when I get occasional dry patches and after a few applications I can see the difference in my skin. It provide moisture and clears up any dry skin. I find the bottle lasts for ages as it is a large bottle and you don't need much.

Basic staple - 25-06-2018 by

I have been using this for more than 20 years! It's been a staple for a fuss free really hydrating face lotion. I find it very soothing especially after my skin as reacted to vitamin A and all it needs is some simple hydration. It doesn't irritate and is really like a "drink" for my skin. I will still keep it as part of my arsenal as even though it may be old fashioned now but there is a place for fuss free.

No! - 20-06-2018 by

Please do not indulge this moisturiser - it is pretty much all mineral oil, with very few ingredients to better or nourish anyone's skin. Mineral oil cannot penetrate the skin properly, as it's derived from petroleum, so if you have any major skin concern (dehydration/oiliness/acne/dryness) run away from this moisturiser and into their moisture surge range. Clinique is a beautiful and revolutionary skincare brand, but be aware that some products are greater than others. I have dry/sensitive skin and when I used this before I knew about skincare... it was a disaster.

Absorbs easily and lightweight - 18-06-2018 by

I like this moisturiser and how it blends into the skin easily as it is quite a thin consistency. I have dry to normal skin and this does the trick. Love the pump dispenser too.

Great under makeup - 18-06-2018 by

This moisturiser is fantastic! It also works well as a primer under makeup and keeps your face hydrated throughout the day. Really good for very dry skin.

Never re-purchansed - 13-06-2018 by

I received this in a Clinique gift set and it wasn't memorable. I don't remember it having any sort of enticing scent or doing any kind of wonders on my skin and I didn't re-purchase it. I'm sure this is ok for some but it didn't do it for me.

Basic but good - 01-06-2018 by

Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is kind of your basic, entry-level moisturiser which has been around for years and years. The good news is that these days it is more customised to suit different skin types (oily-combination, normal-dry etc.), whereas it used to be one-size-fits all. It contains a bunch of old-school ingredients (mineral oil, glycerine, lanolin etc.) without all the bells and whistles of newer products (acids, antioxidants etc.). That said, it is a pretty good moisturiser and I know a lot of people who have been using this stuff for 20 years!

All time favourite - 28-05-2018 by

I have been using this moisturiser twice a day for 5 years now. I have dry to combination skin, and this is a miracle worker. It is so lightweight yet leaves your skin incredibly hydrated. Will definitely recommend this to people of the same skin type as me.

Forever repurchase! - 27-05-2018 by

I absolutely ADORE this moisturising lotion! For reference, I have really dry skin that is also sensitive and acne prone. This moisturiser is super light weight, yet super hydrating. It doesn't leave a film on my face like other moisturisers, and it doesn't break me out (!). With consistent use my skin looks more even and plump.

Love - 21-05-2018 by

This is my go to moisturizer and one I always go back to. I love how lightweight it is and that it makes my skin hydrated but not greasy.

You only need 1 or 2 pumps and it lasts forever! Love that the bottle has a pump and the jumbo size options for the moisturizer.

My skin is always left soft and hydrated. Makeup sits over this beautifully as well.

I do wish it was SPF and that's the only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars.

So nice - 17-05-2018 by

Although the price point is a bit high, it is very worth it. This works great for my combination skin and sits nicely under my makeup.
Definitely my daily go to!

My go-to! - 12-05-2018 by

This is a fantastic moisturiser! I have skin that gets a little oily on the surface, but still needs a lot of hydration. I feel like this really deeply moisturises but dries down to a smooth, almost matte texture. It's pretty much perfect for most seasons, but in winter I tend to use an oil on top at night for some extra nourishment. The pump bottle is okay but does leave a lot of product left over - luckily the pump can be removed so you can "pour" it out, but it would be better if they just improved the pump.

I love this moisturizer! - 11-05-2018 by

I have combination skin and I love this moisturizer! I use it as my day cream and love the hydration it gives. A little goes a long way so the bottle lasts for months. Would repurchase.

cult classic fave - 07-05-2018 by

I have been using this moisturizer for over 10 years. it's the only moisturizer i like to wear under make up a sit doesn't sit on top of my skin or leave a film. non greasy formula & no fragrance. a little goes a long way, a pump bottles lasts me several months. perfect light day wear moisturiser. nothing else i have used or trialed compares to this. i keep coming back to it. my skin is dry & oily & this keeps it hydrated

Go-to - 30-04-2018 by

I love to try out new skincare but I always find myself coming back to Clinique and this product. It hydrates without being oily and plumps my skin beautifully. It works well under makeup and I never find it congests pores. It's a cult-favourite for a reason- if you've been wanting to try it out then 100% give it a go. You won't be disappointed.

My go to - 11-04-2018 by

I love this as part of the Clinique three-step system. It is lovely and rich, without being heavy or greasy. Doesn't upset my sensitive combination skin.

decent moisturiser but nothing special - 05-04-2018 by

This is a decent moisturizer, however i found that it was no better than many other far more affordable alternatives I have tried. I found that this had a slight strange smell to it which i didn't like. I actually prefer my $5 Simple moisturiser over this!

A classic - 03-04-2018 by

I have been using this moisturiser for 15 years. I have tried others along the way, but ALWAYS run right back to my Clinique. It is moisturising, scent-free and causes no irritation for my sensitive skin. It wears beautifully well under primer, sunscreen, and makeup.

Great basic moisturiser - a little goes a long way - 29-03-2018 by

This is a great protector of skin. It lightly moisturizes and maintains the skin barrier all day. It's great under makeup. One small pump from the bottle covers my whole face so the large size last an entire year. It's incredible value.

Favourite Moisturiser - 27-03-2018 by

I started using this again after many years and now I can’t remember why I ever stopped! It provides great hydration, absorbs quickly into the skin and is light and non greasy. It’s fantastic to wear under makeup too. It is a large bottle and lasts quite a while even when using everyday, so it is good value for money.

Goodbye dry skin, hello smooth skin! - 16-06-2016 by

I bought this last week as i've been getting very bad dry skin (dry patches) I was trying lots of different creams however nothing worked. So i purchased this and wow, my words cannot explain how amazing this cream is. From day 1 my skin was already looking smoother and my dry patches were gone. I also have very sensitive skin, i'm prone to eczema and this cream doesn't make me break out!
