Moisturizers -Clinique -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

foto

Believe me when I say it pains me to have to write this - this was my HG moisturizer for over 4 years! It was light, it felt like it was quenching my skins; thirst, I even liked its fragrance (reminded me a little of rosewater!) despite no fragrance added to the product. I was using this day and night and all was well until early this year...

Starting with my forehead and then spreading to cheeks I began to notice a rash and flakiness that I never seen before. At first it was mild and I wondered if a food or drink reaction but over the months it just got worse and worse. Changed my diet, changed my skincare routine, detergent, changed everything apart from Clinique DDMG until one day (2 weeks back) I decided to use a sample of an organic moisturizer a friend had given me and give DDMG a rest for a few days. Lo and behold not immediately but over the course of 10 days or so my skin very slowly calmed down, the bumps, the redness, the flakes until now it is almost 80% cleared and getting better everyday.
The only thing that has changed in all this period is not using DDMG. My guess is that the 'Dimethicone' ingredient (2nd on ingredients list!) which is a silicone had over the years started to build up in my skin until it had reached saturation point. Tbh I feel more annoyed with myself than the product for not realizing until now what was even in its ingredients list! Talk about a 'blind purchase' lol.

Summary: For oily skin folks don't expect oil control because it doesn't do that. It lightly moisturizes anything from normal to oily skin types, but not if overly dehydrated. If you do use this don't plan on using it for many years because depending upon your skins ability to tolerate silicones, eventually at some point this product may turn from friend to foe!

Moisturizers -Clinique -Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

I got this as a deluxe size sample from Ulta recently. I liked that it immediately sinks into my skin and doesn't feel greasy. However it doesn't last 72 hours or makes my skin feel hydrated for that long. The name is misleading and I don't like the jar packaging. There are superior options at a much lower price. I will not repurchase.

Skincare - Face -Clinique -Turnaround Revitalizing Lotion

foto

While poking around on Clinique’s website, I came across a choice for watery lotions. I click. “Watery wonders. The Asian secret to dewy skin. At Clinique, our watery lotions are targeted to your unique concerns.” Hmmm. I’ve recently read up on Asian skin care and to find such an offering is intriguing.
This is not a lotion but more of a thick clear liquid. The tall blue bottle seems generous in portion and elegant. To dispense, I gotta give it a gentle squeeze because it doesn’t pour out on its own. I squeeze out a little bit in my palm, distribute it between both hands, and pat it into my face. As usual per Clinique skin care, no fragrance and fortunately for me no issues such as irritation or adverse reactions, even around my eye area.
The actual use of this product is confusing. The “watery lotions 101 - when do I apply it?” advises after cleansing, before serums or moisturizers. However, under the product itself, it says after your 3-step. I almost emailed Clinique but thanks to MUAers, one or more reviews mentioned use between toner and serum/moisturizer and this seems right as it is (by itself) lightly hydrating and gives my skin a nice drink that my DDML seals in.
So I don’t think this is a must have to add to a routine unless you’re looking for an additional product to layer in that will boost moisture, oily skin types might even be able to use it on its own. It has a few antioxidants, beneficials and extracts so it’s not completely useless. I take off a lippie because I think this isn’t necessary a brightening product but more of a hydration boost.
