I am a winter girl! I love winter. But my love for this season and the way my skin reacts to it are contradictory. My skin is dry and becomes even more dry once it feels the cold breeze before the actual winter starts. I used to apply oil to keep my skin moisturized. It does work, but it gets very greasy and messy. To deeply moisturize my skin and keep away the greasiness, I bought this Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion.

I started using it even before winter started because I just couldn’t resist using it. It has been one and a half months of using it every morning and night. I take a pea-sized amount 'cause that is enough for full coverage and blend it all over. The pump dispenser is bae! It releases the right quantity and prevents wastage. I follow the same routine at night.

This routine has benefitted my skin immensely. Usually, during winter, I face a lot of skin problems like rough cheeks and rashes. I had to literally do oil baptism to stay away from all these problems. Now, all I have to do is use Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, and I’m sorted.

I love how it moisturizes my skin without any greasiness. The texture is so light that it’s a piece of cake to blend, and it gets absorbed within seconds. I haven’t faced any breakouts either. This is a must try.

However, I am not sure if it will work the same during summer. I say this because even if my skin needs moisture, it needs proper sun protection too. This lotion does have sun protecting agents, but I don't think it is not strong enough for the harsh summer sun.

3/5

PROS

Mild fragrance

Blends easily

Lightweight

Quick absorbed

Gives a luminous glow

Can be used under makeup

CONS

Contains mineral oil


I used Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion as part of the three-step program by Clinique. It has been quite some time now, and the results are lovely! This lotion works well for the winter season. It absorbs well and leaves my skin radiant. The texture is not creamy nor is it runny. It is a well balanced and lightweight moisturizer, so it glides easily on the skin, preparing it for makeup.

Though I like this lotion so much, there is a problem with it. It has mineral oil that is known to be bad for the skin. So, I will not be repurchasing Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I think I can get a better one with the price I am paying for this.

PROS

No parabens

No alcohol

No talc and silicone

Imparts radiant glow

Nourishes and moisturizes skin

CONS

Contains mineral oil

Contains petroleum


I used this same product from Clinique before, but since it didn’t work for me then, I stopped. Now that this cream has come up with a new formulation, I thought to give it a try. I have always been in favor of Clinique, and I try to use this brand’s products only.

I first got the tiny travel pack just to be sure, and I have to admit it’s a lot better now. It still has mineral oil and petroleum in it, but from my research, I have found out that petroleum is an excellent moisturizer. And about the mineral oil, the quantity isn’t enough to cause any major problems. But yes! It will be so great if they remove those two.

I have finished the small tube, and since I liked the way it worked on my skin, I am going to go for the bigger size.

2/5

PROS

Mild lotion

CONS

Expensive

Not moisturizing enough


Unfortunately, it is not hydrating or moisturizing enough for me during the winter months since I have very dry skin. This is the main reason why I will not repurchase. It just seems to sit on top of my skin and not really get absorbed or do anything. It is mild and fine for me to use but I just don't like it.

2/5

PROS

A little goes a long way

Great packaging

CONS

Causes breakouts

Expensive

Sticky


I am not at all impressed by Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I wanted to be, but the few times I used it, it gave me breakouts. I wasn’t sure at first if this lotion was causing it, but when I stopped using it for a week, the answer was clear.

I have oily to combination skin, so I guess that’s why it doesn’t work on me. I feel so bummed to have paid so much for nothing. It feels sticky and heavy too.
