Clinique has been my go to brand when it comes to moisturizer. No matter what my skin’s mood is, from extremely dry and flakey to oily greasy face. You can never go wrong with moisturizers Clinique has to offer.
Last year while returning from South Africa I picked up few products from duty free and this was one of them. Most of the high end brands in India as expensive then the actual price due to tax, etc. I would highly recommend shopping from duty free as its way cheaper and you end up saving money.
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream comes in a frosty plastic tub with silver cap. Although its plastic tub, it does not look cheap. In fact, the frosty plastic makes it look like glass tub. Even through the packaging is plastic the tub has good weight to it.
Coming to the formulation, like the name suggests it a rich moisturizing cream. The formula is thick and little goes a long way. Although it’s thick, the cream is easy to apply and spread on the face. Once you spread the cream it takes around 5~10 minutes for it to be absorbed by the skin. You do see the shine on the skin post application. Also, it feels heavy as is unlike any gel based moisturizer I have ever tried. As it’s heavy and takes longer then other moisturizers I have tried, I prefer to use in my night time skin routine. You can definitely use it in the day as well, but I don’t like layering a lot during day as I also apply sunscreen and foundation. Lastly the product is allergy tested and is 100% fragrance-free.
Does it work?
I have hormonal breakouts through the month and specially a week before and after my periods because of which I use a lot of anti-acne products that dries out my skin. Combination on anti-acne creams and winter in general has caused my skin to develop lot of dry patches and flacks. After using Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream I could see difference in my skin within less than a week.
It have been over 2 months now and I don’t use it regularly because I feel my skin has gone back to normal.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
Highly recommended!! Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream is rich and perfect for those with dry to normal skin type. Its allergy tested and is 100% fragrance-free. It does exactly what it claims and after using this you would not need zillion products to get rid of dry skin.
