A lot of people are saying that this product is outdated but I have to disagree. I have tried many moisturizers for my combination skin including origins, neutrogena, kiehl's, and the highly recommended cerave pm- all of which have broken me out or irritated my skin. clinique's ddml has been the only cream to gently moisturize and prep my skin perfectly all the while keeping it clear and unirritated. sometimes it is the tried-and-true classics that make the most difference. i hope they never change the formula of this. i love the packaging and the vast availability. it is a bit expensive but you get a lot of product. i high recommend this if you just want a basic moisturizer.
I was stunned when I saw such low ratings for what I've considered for years a fantastic product. It's simple and moisturizing, acts as a good base for flawless foundation, and doesn't leave your face shiny-looking or greasy. It is suitable for dry and acne-prone skin, as far as I'm concerned, and spreads easily, making it quite economical as only small volumes are required to moisturize.
I typically apply one layer to cleansed skin followed by a second once the first has dried. No need to slather it on; it moisturizes far more effectively if layered.
Thank you, Clinique. <3
This moisturiser is yesterday's news. It's so dated. I used this years ago when I knew little about skin care.I recently received a small tube at bonus time.Same old crap. It's mostly mineral oil.No sunscreen, making it more bother than it's worth for daytime use.No antioxidants or skin beneficial ingredients.If all you want is a basic moisturiser then fine, but why pay this amount?At least it dosen't come in a jar, but having said that there are no beneficial ingredients to be ruined by air anyway.You can get so much better nowadays. I have a love/hate relationship with clinique . Some of their stuff is excellent and then......well there's this.
i honestly don't know what all the rage is about this product: it's heavy, greasy, makes me break out, and makes my skin look terrible. what a waste of money.
I like this moisturiser and have used it for the past few years. It works well for my sensitive skin and I haven't had any reactions to it, unlike a lot of other reviewers have experienced. I like to use it day and night and it works well as a base under makeup. I prefer this for the warmer months and when my skin is not feeling dry, as it not thick and feels light on my skin. I like the packaging and how it has a pump and clear cap. Even though it has a yellow tint, it doesn't transfer any colour to your face once applied. My only problem is it's quite expensive in Australia at $74 for 125mL, which is ridiculously more expensive than America, where for the same size it is $23.50! So I like to buy this when I travel to the US or can get a friend/relative to buy it for me. Clinique really need to lower their prices in Australia!
I got this product but in the Gel form because I have oily skin. I really like how light it is. It does not have a smell. It goes on smoothly and gets absorbed quickly. I have not had breakouts since I started using it, which is a plus for me, and it does its job. I got it in the travel size ($10) and has last me a long time, it is barely half way and I've had it for 4 months.
I loved the way this moisturizer made my skin feel so smooth and healthy but i hated the fact that it also caused me to have a negative reaction within the next day. Anytime I'd try to use this gel again, my face would be much oiler than without using this and i'd break out. never casued my facial skin to burn but it just caused oil and pimple production to increase.
it gave me a rash. i was allergic. same with the gel
I didn't get the hype when I was in my 20's and several decades later I still don't. My skin was normal then, normal-to-dry now. I don't have sensitive skin so no issues there. But quite unremarkable nevertheless. Any decent d/s product is more then comparable.
I found this to be a very average product. It didn't blow me away, but it wasn't complete garbage. However, the negatives were enough to keep me from repurchasing. At this point, I'm just using it to finish it up.
First, it wasn't moisurizing enough. Normally I wouldn't hold this against a product if it was intended for a variety of skin types but the packaging specifically says, "for very dry to dry combination skin." I have dry skin (not even very dry) and just found this wasn't hydrating enough. While it does apply nicely, absorbs fast and wears well under makeup, I expect my moisturizer to actually moisturize. Also, it stinks! I tried not to let it bother me as it's supposed to be fragrance free but this is the worst smelling unscented moisturizer I've ever come across.
Final verdict: save your money for something better. I've used drug store moisturizers better than this.
