This moisturizer is amazing, it is lightweight, will NOT break you out, is perfect for sensitive skin, and is very refreshing. I recently ran out of it after about 4-5 months (it lasts you quite a while!) and tried to use a different moisturizer as I was tight on cash. I used a different hypo-allergenic, fragrance free, oil-free moisturizer aimed at sensitive skin that I used to use way back in the day. Let me tell you, after only 2-3 days, my skin was freaking out. I also ran out of the clinique mild cleanser and replaced it with another simple cleanser. I still had the clarifying lotion, but just these two little changes in my routine completely irritated my skin. I've used this moisturizer for years, and it is soooo worth the price. Clinique products are so gentle and effective, I refuse to use anything else !
I love, love, love this! I got it in a sample at Sephora along with a few other samples. I tend to have drier, flakier skin in the winter but still get oily on my nose, and with this moisturizer I get both problems solved! Not to mention I have extremely sensitive, fair, allergy-prone skin and I was shocked to find that this worked. Keeps my skin hydrated all night long yet I don't wake up looking like an oil slick. Gives my skin a nice healthy glow and combats all my dry patches. The sample has lasted me awhile, but when I run out I'm going straight to the Clinique counter to get more!
This gel is fantastic ! I have a combination - normal skin and the texture is just awesome. It makes me feel very and healthy. The smell is perfect, not too much, but not too neutral. My skin feels peachy-like after I put it on me. I use it without the 1st and 2nd step of the basic 3 temps, because i don't feel the need to. The packaging is simple, and the yellow color is eye-appealing and makes a bathroom happy ! I would definitely stick to this one.
Darn it! I really wish this would work for me! This is my second attempt at using this moisturizer, as the good reviews are hard to ignore. The first time I tried it, I used it for only a couple of days and promptly returned it because my skin seemed to react badly. During my most recent attempt, I actually got through half of a bottle before finally giving up. No matter what, it just seems to irritate and clog up my skin. Even though it feels so cool and refreshing going on my skin, I find that it makes me much oilier than normal and makes my skin look constantly irritated. I guess this just isn't for me.
I have ance prone, really oily skin and during the winter this is one moisturizer that i can rely on. However, during the summer when it's super hot, the gel does not seem to work as well as it does during the colder seasons even though the one i have says it is for oily to combination skin... I recommend a moisturizer with spf especially during the summer time ladies.
I LOVE THIS GEL! It isn't heavy at all and works great with my oily skin under primer and foundation. It gives moisture to the dry, flaky spots without making my oily zones ... oily. I do wear a more hydrating moisturizer in the winter time, but this is perfect for the hot, humid months. It doesn't make my acne-prone skin break out which is a definite plus. It's a good price for the quality and amount.
Overall, great product at a great price! Works really well with oily skin and does not cause breakouts or turn my face into an oily mess. Definitely recommend for oily, acne-prone skin!
I have had oily, acne prone, and overall extremely sensitive skin all of my life. I am currently in my mid 30's and have used this Clinique moisturizing gel for over 10 years. It works best in the wintertime, since in the summer the heat makes my face super oily and I have to use the Clinique Acne line's moisturizer.
I love this moisturizer. I have combination/oily skin, and i love how this is a gel. It absorbs quickly, which is good because i am absolutely traumatized by moisturizers that dont absorb as they just make my face so greasy. I live in a hot and humid country so i feel like this is perfect. I must agree that for the winter it doesnt moisturize my face enough so i switch it to a different moisturizer during this time of the year.
I bought this because I wanted a light moisturizing gel for oily skin. At first, I loved it. The texture reminded me of the Clinique All About Eyes eye creme, which is so soft. Although this moisturizer does have a very similar texture and it feels so nice on the skin, it absorbs quickly. But it leaves a residue on the skin. Not sure what it is, but it cannot be worn under makeup! If i put liquid foundation on after this, it makes little rolls as I spread, like the residue is peeling off. I think its also clogging me up. Thats a dealbreaker. Will be looking for something else.
The first month I used this , I thought I finally found my HG moisturizer. It made my skin very smooth with this kind of silky finish. I did not like the smell but the results were great so it wasn't a big deal. Unfortunately,after a few weeks of usage, I started getting very oily on my t-zone and the rest of my face had a few dry patches. I even noticed 2-3 breakout on my nose, and I NEVER break out in this area of my face. Overall, i'm disappointed of that product, it made me oily on my t-zone and dry on the rest of my face. Definitely not that good for combo skin like mine.
