i have super dry skin and this definitely broke me out and made my skin a lot more dryer, i woke up the next day and i sooooo saw a break out. i also don't like pot moisturisers because they say that they aren't as hygienic.
Since I live in Calgary, my skin tends to change from oily in summer to extremely dry and flaky in winter. I was looking for something that wouldn't give me breakouts but still moisturize and eliminate those nasty flaky patches around my nose and lips. Unfortunately, this product didn't do it.
I would still say it's a great moisturizer for those with normal to combination skin.
It is very smooth, your skin is left soft and silky after applying it. It doesn't break you out. It's very light and perfect for summer.
This works better on top of your everyday moisturizer. It goes on top of make up and is really light, but it does not do anything to dry, peeling skin.
i agree with most people - this does not moisturize for long and the dry feeling does come back after a few minutes. after hating the dramatically different moisturizing gel, i was recommended this moisturizer. this was probably worse then the gel. i liked the lotion but was told it had oils and was noy good for acne prone skin.
i hate jar products. kind of unsanitary, and sometimes you get too much product. i found myself reapplying this moisturizer every 30 minutes just to get the dry feeling off, and i ran out of the product pretty quickly.
i still use the DDM lotion only when i have dry patches because it works and moisturizes amazing. and i never break out from it, which is kind of ironic.
I just can't get into Clinique products. I have really dry skin in the winter time and I though this would be great, SA said this would be great, got a sample. It feels very moisturizing going on and feels pretty light weight, then a few minutes later it feels like my skins even drier than it was before. It makes my skin feel tight and dry and I just don't like it. Garnier worked 1000x better for me than this. It's too expensive, I'm just giving up on Clinique.
This moisturizer confuses me. It feels great going on, skin is more comfortable but 10 min later the dry patches reappear and the comfortable feeling is gone - a true disappearing act. Adding more layers will not make a difference.
Also, If there are any anti-oxidants the jar packaging will not preserve them. Perhaps this works better on oily yet dehydrated skin vs truly dry skin. Either way it should not be marketed as a moisture surge for dry skin.
even worse than Clinique DDMG and too expensive.
I'm still working on my sample, but will definitely purchase, soon! I love everything Clinique. I am a Clinique LOVER! This is by-far their very best moisturizer (next to dramatically different). I am in love. I am skin type 2, and have dry, sentive cheeks, and am very pale. I love this, because no matter how dry my skin is, this reverses weeks of dryness in about 2 minutes! LOVE it. So light and non greasy. Works wonders under foundation! Makes my skin super soft and plump looking. Very dewy. Love it. I can't wait to buy a full size! It's like a gel, but hydrates like a cream, with the feel of a gel. Make sense? Perfect. I'm in love! Holy grail moisturizer!
I love this product! I've been using it for years already! I normally use it under makeup and I love how makeup will stick to my face and also give this healthy glow. I have sensitive + combination skin (mainly normal, but slightly oily at T-zone areas) and this product makes my face feel hydrated without any irritations or breakouts. The only downside is that you must use it with other products (I apply lotion first, followed by the moisture surge). There is absolutely no scent to this product and is suitable for those with sensitive skin. I would highly recommend this, although it can be slightly pricey! =D
