  • "I have used this stuff for years. I have insanely dry skin and this lotion works for me even in the winter months. i have tried other lotions over the years and some thick night creams, and this one seems to have the most long-lasting moisturizing effect. Because it is so lightweight, I can easily smooth foundation and concealer over it as well." in 1124 reviews

  • "I always have a bottle of this lotion. I've been using this for a very long time and always keeps my face very moisturized, especially in the winter. I love Clinique products because they are gentle on my sensitive skin. I totally recommend this if you're looking for a lightweight facial moisturizer. It really works!" in 653 reviews

I’ve used Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+™ for years and my mother before me. It was the only thing we’ve used consistently in our skincare routine, especially hers. I get samples and test them out but always seem to go back to this lotion. Haven’t tried the new infuser but I look forward to trying it out.
Clinique moisturizer makes my skin soft without feeling greasy. It absorbs quick and doesn’t give me the weepy eyes effect I get from so many moisturizers. I can use it Day or night and won’t start sweating off as soon as I walk out the door. This lotion is definitely the best I’ve ever used and can’t wait to get the infusers. Trying to save up for some right now.

Purchased at: Macy's
Been using Cliniques Drastically Different lotions for many many years now. Ive gotten samples with purchases as well as made a few of my own. While it is pricey (as Clinique is), this stuff really does feel great and does the job. I am 26 years old with combo skin and I love using this after a shower, in the morning, or applying before bed. Doesn't cause breakouts and leaves your skin feeling baby soft. For as thin as a lotion it is, it's super soft and hydrating. Love and will probably always recommend this whole line. Also this is GREAT for the wintertime dryness... Use on your hands, promise you won't regret!

Purchased at: ULTA
I only tried the trial version of this in the aisle before you check out at Ulta. I picked it up because it was $5 and I heard good things about Clinique. I was going through a period of dry, patchy, and flaky skin. If you have dry skin this product may not be for you, as I had no results in any moisturizing or hydration from this product. It’s cool and soothing upon application, however after a while I found my skin was not getting moisturized. This was my experience and it may have been some kind of underlying cause but for a product to claims it is “dramatically different,” you would hope it would be moisturizing.

I bought this as a last resort before making an appointment with a dermatologist. My face was so dry it was flaking, very red and painful at times. I purchased a facial oil with this as well and mixed a bit of the oil with this moisturizer. Worked like a charm! Within a week I had major improvement! I will definitely keep this in my skincare routine! It smells really good as well!

ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED! I have been having trouble finding a good moisturizer for these winter dry months so a bought a small size at Ulta and I was blown away. I use this under my makeup every morning and then also at night before bed. It is so light weight and melts into the skin. My small sample size lasted me over a month so you get a great bang for your buck. The full size is on the pricer side but it is 100% worth it for me. The only con is the smell. I think it smells quite weird but it goes away pretty quickly so I can look past it.

I was pretty disappointed in this product as I normally love clinique. My skin is typically dry/combo but I feel like this was just way too heavy for me. My skin is normally pretty clear but right away I started getting breakouts in places I never normally would. I switched from the gel moisturizer to this lotion, but im definitely going to be switching back to the gel as it doesnt clog my skin as much and feels much lighter. I have heard other great reviews about this, but it just really did not work for my skin.

I have been using this product for quite awhile now and I must say, it is my favorite. It's fragrance free, dry after a few sec and very absorbent on my skin. I don't like moisturizers that are too oily or thick, therefore this product delivers everything I'm looking for.
Price wise, it is not too expensive but still a but more than over the counter lotion or moisturizer at the drugstore.
My skin is extended sensitive but this moisturizer is one of the few that doesn't break me out, so I'm thankful for that.

I absolutely love the stuff I have extremely sensitive and dry skin so a lot of product irritate my face. This moisturizer is completely different, there’s not a harsh fragrance to it and it doesn’t irritate my skin at all. I’ve been using this every day for about two months and you can see how far I’ve gotten with the bottle. This is such a great moisturizer for anyone who suffers with dry sensitive skin. It is definitely worth the priceClinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+™

I have used this product for years. It is reliably going to also provide me the intense moisture when I need it. The packaging is super nice and simple. I know the exact way that it is going to apply, and it is always consistent. For myself, I would be so oily if I used it twice a day, everyday. I find that it is good to use every other day though. This moisturizer is really good for dehydrated skin that needs a good boost. I think the amount is worth the price because it will last for a long time.

This stuff is just as great as I remember it. I used to steal it from my older sister and I remembered it being life changing. Spoiler alert: It still is. 
I've recently struggled with a bout of adult acne and could never find a balance of keeping my skin moisturized without being greasy. This, my friends, is the balance. 2-2 1/2 pumps at night after a shower and full skin care routine (in the winter when my skin is a sad, parched wasteland) and I wake up with a perfectly moisturized, non greasy face ready for makeup. I really think a good moisturizer was the missing link in my routine and what was causing the last of my stubborn breakouts. 
I'm not kidding, most skin care products take a few weeks to really start to show any improvement-on day two I feel like I have a different face. I used to get greasy throughout the day because of my skin over-producing oil from how dry it was. Now my makeup is lasting longer, my skin is clearing up, and overall my face just feels healthier. 
I put off introducing this to my routine for so long because of the price. DO IT. You will save yourself so much wasted money and frustration by just spending the money on this first.
