As an acne sufferer my skin is quite uneven. I find that it is rather oily on some areas, particularly on the T-Zone but dry on others such as my cheek and around my mouth. I have been looking for a moisturizer that balances both. Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel does just that! I was pleasantly surprise of how good of a job it does at keeping me both hydrated and less oily. I have been using it for a couple of months and I am glad that I did. It is oil and fragrance free.
The gel comes in a yellow shade with a dispensing pump, which I found a plus as it prevents bacteria from getting in the product. I usually use about 1-2 pumps per use, and like the description says my skin “drinks” it up. The product is lightweight and it absorbs into my skin very quickly and leaves a velvety feel to my skin. I found that my foundation sits on top of it very well, unlike some others that make it look cakey. Although, it doesn’t completely eliminate the oily T-zone, the effects are dramatic enough that I have been loyal to this product, and I don’t see myself letting it go soon. As for the dry areas, I have notice a significant difference as well. My cheeks usually get dry patches due to acne products that I use. Using DDMG has improved the dry patches, and as a result my makeup looks better and it looks like I have better skin. Perhaps the best part of this product is that it doesn’t break out my sensitive skin. I absolutely love this product!
