Definitely an HG product for me. I have extremely clog prone, combo-oily skin, and, to my surprise I will admit, this doesn't break me out. If you have very oily skin I probably wouldn't recommend it. It's a bit heavy for me sometimes, but overall I like it. It's pretty bland I'd say, having no actives. It's fragrance free and I've never really noticed any kind of offensive plastic smell like with other fragrance free products. It's light ish and usually absorbs into my skin fairly quickly, and doesn't really ball up on its own, though it will over other products sometimes.
I bought this because my skin gets oily on my forehead and nose. I would have to say, after a month of using, my skin doesnt get as oily. I like the texture and how easily it absorbs.
I would give it a 8 out of 10 for really moisturizing.
I LOVE THIS LOTION!!
this lotion is perfect for anytime.
i use this after the shower so that it will absorb into my skin to make it feel silky smooth
i use it before bed (if i didnt shower that day) so that my skin will be nice in the morning
i use it after swimming to revive my skin from chlorine
event though i use it so much, i dont need a lot to moisturize. i have had one bottle for well over a year, and i have just less than half of it left still.
it is kind of pricey for a lotion, BUT it lasts foreverrr!
regardless of what kind of skin you have i bet this will work for you. it absorbs quickly, doesnt smell strongly (a plus for me), and it wont make you feel oily.
try this! its amazing
will definitely repurchase when my bottle runs out (probably wont be for a while cause you dont need much)
I really like this lotion! I used the orginal a couple years ago and I didn't like it because it was really greasy and just sat on my skin. This one though is much better!! Much more hydrating and it really sinks into my skin and perks it up!! I bought the big bottle of it fall '13 and I still have half of it left even with daily use! It lasts sooooooooooo long!
Im not sure if I will buy it again or not though because of all the cheaper alternatives out there but If I have the money at that time I might buy it again so we'll just have to see. I do like it though!
One tip though that you must be careful when using it as to not apply too much! Use ONE pump first and I spread if over my hands and gently pat on my face. Otherwise, it becomes too much!! So less is more with this lotion.
-very hydrating (best for dry skins)
-sinks into the skin
-doesnt clog pores
-only need a small amount at a time (bottle lasts forever)
I love this product, I used to have very dry skin of which the only cream that seemed to do any good was Nivea, which is such a thick cream! I used to use a good blob on each cheek and then one for my forehead, nose and chin, that's how dry my skin was. Ever since I've started using the clinque moisturiser my skin has been so kucxh better and I only have to use the smallest amount for my skin! I do however use the 3 step clinque set (type 1) so I don't know how much the other products have played a part in improving my skin! Even though it's a little bit more pricey than my usual £4 large tub of Nivea it has been worth it!
I know this product hasn't received the best reviews on here, but it has literally saved my skin. For whatever reason, as soon as fall hit last year, my skin completely dried out. It was like a dry, flaky desert wasteland. Typically I would occasionally get a little dry patch here and there in the winter, but I'd never experienced anything like what was going on and didn't know what to do about it. My entire forehead was covered in dry flaky skin, and it was also that way on my cheeks and eventually my chin. My foundation and makeup in general looked terrible because of it and it was embarrassing. I tried various moisturizers, rotated between my various moisturizing foundations, bb creams, tinted moisturizers, etc. I tried a couple different cleansers. I exfoliated regularly. Upped my water intake. Nothing helped. I remembered using Clinique DDML when I was in junior high and high school and remembered that being a pretty good moisturizer. I was a bit hesitant when I went to the Clinique counter and saw they had reformulated it, but I was desperate.
When I first used it, I noticed how thick and somewhat greasy feeling it was, but it absorbed into my skin pretty well, fairly quickly. Within a week of using this product, every single flake and dry patch I had was gone. I've been using it even since - about five months now - and my skin is in wonderful condition. It looks and feels healthy and supple. I should note that I have moderately sensitive skin and this hasn't irritated it all, nor has it caused any breakouts.
I can see how this moisturizer might cause problems for someone who doesn't have dry - very dry skin. I would imagine that no one with oily skin should even attempt using it. But for those of us whose skin is in desperate need of intense hydration, it's perfect. Or at least it was for me. I do wish it had SPF, which is the only reason I took a point off. I love that it's fragrance free. I apply this in the morning and at night after I wash my face. One bottle contains 4.2 oz. I've used it twice a day for about five months and I still have 1/4 of the bottle left. I will definitely repurchase.
I don't normally review on MUA but had to add my two bits on how much I hated this new version. I guess because Paula Begoun always disparaged the original DDL that I had a snobby view of it but one day I dug out my GWP after a bad skin reaction and it soothed my skin. I never really bought more than one bottle of it because I always had GWP but also I was on a more natural kick so avoided it mostly due to the parabens and dyes.
But its a good basic lotion that does the job and sometimes it's good not to have all that cell communicating stuff so you have less of a reaction to a long ingredient list. In fact, PB should stop disparaging basic simple skincare or what she calls boring because that sometimes can be more healing than the most antioxidant loaded product. ie check out Japan's Fancl, Hadalabo and Juju skincare. Unscented, low in preservatives, budget priced. It works. If only it was easier to get ahold of instead of ordering online.
The new DDL+ I couldn't get past the scent of moldiness because Clinique removed the parabens. It also was not very moisturizing considering they improved it. Don't bother with this.
I have lived in northern New Jersey and now live in Florida. I have combination skin. In NJ, my skin would tend to be drier, but in FL, my skin tends to be oily. I recommend this product. The pump dispenses the moisturizer into your hand. I for the moisturizer into my face and pat it in. I always have a little left over from the pump, which I rub into the back of my hands. The moisturizer is so lightweight and not heavy at all, so it's perfect to put makeup on topic without already weighing your face down. This product worked so well in NJ and FL! I definitely recommend this product, and I would but again IF it had SPF. Since I've moved to Florida, I want a moisturizer with SPF so that my husband could use it too.
Got a sample of this at the Clinique counter and it was awful. I generally like Clinique skincare products, but not this. At first it seemed okay, but I noticed that it sat on my face and made it oily. After a few days parts of my face started getting flaky and red. Will definitly not be buying this.
I really didnt like it , is still sitting in my drawer.very heavy feel on skin and did cause some breakouts.
