Ladies, do you spend more money on clothes or cosmetics?
Well, I am guilty of spending an equal amount on both. Basically, I live way above my means. But YOLO! (Just to clarify, I am not encouraging you to throw away your money randomly.)
So, one of my purchases from last month was Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Since then, I have been using it every day. I have very oily skin, so much so that within a few minutes of wash my face and applying makeup, my skin looks shiny again. It’s annoying!
Did Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel work for me?
Yes, it certainly did. Let’s talk about its packaging first. I got the tube because I wanted to tell myself that I saved some money if it didn't work. The tube is beige with a screw silver cap. It works well because it does not get messy and the size is convenient.
I was very impressed with its light gel texture. I dislike creamy moisturizers even during the winter season because I have oily skin. This gel-moisturizer glides on my skin with ease, and though it is dry season now, it is giving my skin the right amount of moisture that it needs.
I haven’t seen any effect on my pimples, but it didn’t break me out, so I have no problem. Regarding my oil secretion, to be honest, it controls the oil for a solid three to four hours which is pretty high considering how fast my skin gets oily. But I am very doubtful if it is a long-term solution. I say this because there are days I just stay at home without applying this moisturizer and my skin got just as oily as before.
So the conclusion is, you need to use it everyday.

Suitable for oily skin
I have been using the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap for oily-combination skin with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel since the beginning of this year. It is costly, but the way my oily skin is responding to it is impressive. So I feel it’s totally worth it. Anything for my skin!
But this isn’t as perfect as I’m making it sound. The gel-moisturizer does have some flaws - it does not have SPF! It is essential to have sun protection in every moisturizing formula, especially for oily to combination skin. And also, though it claims to be fragrance-free, that’s not entirely true. It does have some sort of smell.
Will I repurchase? Not sure, I might look for a better alternative. But I’m keeping the facewash.

A little goes a long way
Miosturizes skin well
Not suitable for dry skin
Since I have acne-prone and sensitive skin, this is my holy grail moisturizer. The best part is its gel texture and it does not cause breakouts. After eight months of use, I will say that it is a safe choice that hydrates oily skin without making it greasy. It is totally worth it because just a tiny amount covers my face and neck.
It wouldn’t be sufficient for dry skin. I think Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ will suit them better. My cousin uses it, and I heard good things about it.

Hydrates your skin
I like how it gives me a matte finish even during the summer season. I have combination skin, so mostly gel moisturizers are advised. That way, this moistuizer works very well. My only wish though is that it had sun protection. I have to put another layer of sunscreen to protect my skin,, but thankfully Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel is very light in texture. Otherwise, it would be a zero for me.
