CLAIMS: This refreshing, oil-free cream-gel is a "drink" for skin, continuously plumping its appearance with hydration. The luxurious, addictive texture and ultra-hydrating formula make it a frequent fliers’ favorite. It improves the appearance of fine lines, flakiness, and tightness, leaving skin looking and feeling happier and healthier—even through shifts in humidity. It immediately cools and refreshes for a soft, smooth complexion. It can be used as a five-minute moisture mask, or over makeup for a luminous glow.
CONSISTENCY: A lightweight cream-gel that absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a film on my face.
EASE OF APPLICATION: I only needed a dime sized amount for my entire face and neck.
RESULTS: This Clinique Moisturizer says that it provides up to 24 hours of soothing hydration,... I found that to be absolutely true! I LOVED how this sunk into my skin and had a slightly cooling effect as it hydrated my face! It was super lightweight and didn’t clog my pores at all. The small sample packet also lasted me over a week, so it is a good value since you don’t need to go overboard slathering it on your face every morning. My T-zone did get somewhat oily as the day went on, which is why I deducted a star. I would definitely say this is a nice dupe for belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb, but my loyalty remains with Belif since it balances out the oil on my face while moisturizing simultaneously. That being said, I wouldn’t pass up another sample of this product at all. Well done, Clinique!
OTHER INFO: Formulated without parabens, this product is allergy tested, non-acnegenic, and free of fragrance and oil.
OVERALL GRADE: 4 / 5 STARS
