Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel Review

6 comments
Until I started blogging and reading more posts about beauty and skincare, I was never that concerned about my skincare routine. In fact, I didn't even have a skincare routine at all. Each night I'd use a quick face wipe to get rid of my makeup and if I was feeling extra generous I would have a quick cleanse too. Over the past year, my skincare collection has drastically improved and I practically have washes and exfoliators coming out of my ears - don't worry I've now clamped down and haven't bought anymore. Today's post is all about my favourite moisturiser which I cannot recommend enough. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I am a marketers dream. I see an advert for a high end product and think 'Ooh that's next on my list' and give it a week or so and you can guarantee I'll have picked it up by then! Luckily, I've got out of this habit as its not practical, but I'm definitely glad I splashed out on this moisturiser.
 
 
Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturiser has actually been around for longer than I had originally thought, they simply updated the formula. It's now known as moisturising lotion (or gel) plus, meaning it's now packed with even more benefits. I decided to choose the gel formula rather than the lotion as I thought it may be easier to use on my skin. I don't suffer with dry skin an awful lot but I have tested this moisturiser in both sunny climates (on holiday) and this dark and gloomy weather we're currently struggling through. I have now been using this moisturiser for a good six months and I'm ready to share a few thoughts. The moisturising gel is described as a drink for your skin and with a silky smooth texture. I apply this all over my face in the evenings after removing my makeup and it feels absolutely divine on your skin; it's a bit like having a mini facial in your own home! It absorbs after just a few seconds and doesn't leave my skin feeling with any residue. My skin's condition has improved since using and I no longer suffer with random dry patches on my face. I currently have the 125ml bottle with a pump which sets me back £29.50. I love how simple yet sophisticated the packaging is and it looks perfectly on my bedside table. The additional pump makes it super easy for me to dispense whenever I'm ready.
 
As with any product, it's not always plain sailing. The first negative I have to point out is the price, it's definitely not on the cheap side. Being a Clinique product, I wasn't expecting it to be dirt cheap although I would love it if it was slightly more affordable.
The only other negative I can mention is that I do feel that I have to use quite a lot of the product to completely cover my face - either that or may face is too round! Despite the hefty price tag it certainly is worth it especially if you catch it on a 10% or 15% discount day! You can see the moisturising gel here and you can see the other varieties here. I've also currently found an extremely cheap moisturising lotion in a 50ml rub for the bargain price of just £6.99 (Should be £17.00!) but sadly it's now showing OOS. Keep an eye out here and cross your fingers!

  2. Ive always wanted to give this product a try, but I was hesitant about spending so much on something Im unsure about. This review definitely confirmed my assumptions about Clinique being a worthwhile splurge. I might actually pick this up!

  4. I use the lotion version of this as my skin is dry and I love it. It is quite pricey but I've found the bottle lasts me ages so I'm not too bothered about the price - it would be nice if I could find a cheaper alterative that's just as good though! xx

  6. I love this moisturiser! I used to be loyal to the lotion version of this but then Clinique changed the formula so I switched to the gel and it's absolutely lovely :) X
