Beauty, SkincareClinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

cliniqueplusI am very much a Clinique girl. Probably like many of you, the brand was my first introduction to the beautiful world of prestige makeup–for me, at young age of 12. But even as I’ve gotten older and matured in my beauty taste, I always still turn to Clinique for products that I know are high quality, efficacious, doesn’t irritate skin, and at the end of the day, won’t rob me of an arm and a leg. In other words, through the years, many of the Clinique products I grew up loving (Black Honey almost lipstick anyone?) have become staples in my beauty routine–classics.

One such classic, of course, is Clinique’s iconic Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. This was the first moisturizer that I purchased and one that I’ve used through many bottles of, but as product technology kept changing and advancing, this classic started to feel a little…well, old school. Recently, however, Clinique has refreshed and relaunched the product –now Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + –and has once again brought it to the forefront of my skincare routine. Like the old classic, the lotion is a pale yellow hue, lightweight, absorbs quickly, and is meant for daily use as part of a 3-step regimen. The big change with the formulation is the introduction of a new complex incluing hyaluronic acid, glycerine and urea that helps strengthen skin’s own moisture barrier by 54% , leaving it feeling soft and supple all day while boosting the skin’s natural defense. Even though I have combination to oily skin and it’s currently summer–the lightweight product and gentle formulation leaves my face feeling hydrated and nourished, but doesn’t leave it looking shiny or greasy. The lotion is now available at all Clinique counters, replacing the original version–a new modern classic!

    Thanks for the review. I also have combination/oily skin and was a little worried about the new formula being too much. Glad to know it works.

    Hi Lei! I remember how much you used to love Black Honey.

    I still have half a bottle of the old stuff from high school.

    Congrats on getting engaged, btw.
