Im very surprised at the amount of negative reviews about this lotion! I've been using this for about 2 months now in the AM and PM and I'm very happy with it.
I have combination skin, I'm prone to breakouts and my skin is very sensitive. I find that this lotion feels light, soaks in rather quickly and moisturizes without leaving my skin feeling heavy, oily or without appearing shiny.
I only need about 1.5 pumps for my entire face and neck. My skin feels more balanced now after 2 months of use. I find that my face isn't shiny by noon every day, the flakiness of my forehead is gone and I've had a huge decrease in breakouts.
I've used this in the cold, dry winter (-45 w/ the windchill) and on vacation somewhere tropical for a couple weeks and it was great on my skin in both climates.
I would recommend picking this up from somewhere like Sephora that has a fantastic return policy since there are a lot of negative reviews. That way you can try it out for a few weeks and return it if you don't like it!
For myself, this will definitely be a repurchase.
I got this in a minisize from the 3 step system. What I do like about it, is that it dries super quick and doesn't leave your skin oily. Perfect if you have oily skin or it's summer time. i have combinated dry skin, which means that I can break out and be a little shiny in my t zone, but also have really dry cheeks. And since it's winter and freaking freezing where I live, my skin i soo dry. this moisturizer doesn't give me enough moisturize and it's too expensive and really runny in consistensy.. Overall an okay good product.
I always thought this was the most overrated moisturizer of all time. It's all mineral oil and doesn't moisturize at all, especially if you are over 40. I never understood the price either, and a testament to this is you often get a mini bottle of this stuff as a free gift at the Clinique counter. I usually throw them away, because I can give them away. Don't waste your money and if you are still curious, chances are you have a friend who has an unused bottle laying around!
I LOVE this product! It is the perfect consistency. It's light, which is very important to me in a facial moisturizer, but it also has a slight pull to it, making your skin feel a bit tighter. The only downside is that it has no sun protection, but, to me, it's worth the risk.
I honestly don't think I look good in the morning until I put this lotion on.
I really don't get why people don't give this moisturizer more love. This is the one and only facial moisturizer which does not leave me greasy and full of acne. I use this product in the morning and before bed every night. It leaves my skin very smooth and supple...but never oily. Without a doubt the best moisturizer I've ever used.
One of the worst moisturizers I have tried! I have very dry skin and get loads of dry patches on my forehead and around my nose. I tried this moisturizer as my mum said she uses it and loves it. As soon as I applied it it felt cakey on my face and I hated the feeling. When I woke up the next morning my skin was still very dry and the moisturizer had done nothing for it. Wouldn't repurchase this as it is also quite expensive and there are so many better moisturizers which are much much cheaper!
Love this stuff. I still need an oil like coconut or jojoba mixed in during the winter because I have incredibly dry skin and am a Retin A user. But this is by far my favorite moisturizer. It doesn't irritate my skin and doesn't feel too heavy but makes my skin feel nice.
This is one of very few moisturizers that doesn't make my dry ezcema prone skin freak out!
This was one of the worst moisturizers I have ever used on my face. It never moisturized my face, instead it just sat there on top of it. I had to really work it in to get it to disappear into my skin and then it never seemed to be enough because halfway through the day my face would start feeling as if I never put any moisturizer on that morning. Beware of this horrid stuff!
Give me a break. Clinique recommends this product whether your 15 or 80, extremely oily or severely dry with age concerns. The second ingredient is Mineral Oil which is the cheapest oil used to put into cosmetics. It is all topical. Mineral Oil doesn't penetrate into skin there for will not really heal or repair skin. It simply sits on top of your skin. If you are looking for a moisturizer with ANY anti age benefits at al skip this. If you love yourself at all skip this and save a little more money and invest ia quality product. This is crap in a silver pump
