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.
This is a great moisturizer. As I've gotten older I've realized that gels work better for my skin. I had used the lotion as a teenager when I got it as a gift and didn't think it was any better than whatever Neutrogena I had been using. Clinique seemed so expensive to me as a teenager but now as an adult, I realize that this is one of the best priced for quality moisturizers (I've never found a good drugstore gel moisturizer). The gel keeps my face from feeling greasy but still keeps my skin soft. It does not clog and is good for my oily-slightly combination skin.
This moisturizer is exceptionally good for people who live in drier climates such as myself (Calgary, Canada). During the winter especiallly, the cold dry air leaves my skin feelings really tight and uncomfortable. But this moisturizer does a really good job provinding me with enough moisture to last me through the whole day. There are two kinds that it comes in- the lotion, and the gel. The lotion is suggested to be better for combination skin, while the gel is better for oily skin. I use the lotion, but only a small amount of it and similar to what others have said in this thread, it really does last a long time!
This moisturizer is definitely one of the top moisturizer's I've picked up through my experience. It keeps your skin glowing and hydrated for the ENTIRE day (24 hours) and in the winter time with my combination skin, this saves my upper lip and chin area from turning that horrible red chapped color. If you have very oily skin, however, buy the right type for you, because this product ranges from very dry to oily and can be used on virtually any skin type. A tad expensive, but good moisturizers usually are. Allow it to dry before you put on makeup, however, otherwise it makes your foundation thinner and a little more prone to wipe off throughout the day.
I really like this moisturizer. It keeps my skin well hydrated, but not oily feeling in the least. I can occasionally have breakouts, and this product does not seem to have caused any, so I have to give it 5 stars for helping keep me blemish free!
Overall this cream does what it says and nothing more. It moisturizes my skin, doesn't irritate it, and doesn't leave a greasy residue which is great!
It does take me about a min to fully absorb. But I almost wish they had a SPF version, or some kind of multitasking ability.
The best thing about this lotion is how little you need. I've had this bottle for 10 months now,
Possibly the best facial moisturiser I have ever used. A pea sized amount goes a long way (in fact, I used the same bottle for about 6 months), and glides easily on my skin. It doesn't take long before it has sunk into my skin, and leaves my face soft and supple after using the facial soap and toner (from the Clinique 3-Step System). I also use this on my neck after cleansing and toning, so that part of the body also feels the benefits. Only annoyance is the price tag of the pump version, but for me it is worth every penny and has never let me down. I highly recommend this to any woman suffering from combination oily/ oily skin.
My holy grail moisturizer. I have oily skin, but still need something to balance out the moisture in it. This is light, but definitely seals in all of my skincare products and adds some moisture to the places I need it. I've had yet to find a cheaper moisturizer that lives up to this one.
If you have anything less than oily skin, however, do not buy this. Opt for another moisturizer, as this will not quench the extra dry patches on your skin! I've tried it on those flaky areas of my face during the winter and it really didn't do a thing for me.
