Skin Care Review: clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel
well moisturize, non greasy, causing no break outs
price, not enough for winter
used this through my 20s, and it worked. Nothing spectacular - but my skin (otherwise sensitive, fragile, irritable, intolerant, prone to bouts of dryness and spottiness...) felt fine and was basically normal. Now, that might not be enough for many people, but in my case that was fantastic.
Then I decided to experiment. Some calamities ensued. I followed fashion. My face followed suit, in its own way, expressing intense disapproval. Stability was attained with Avene Skin Recovery. Then some wisecrack decided it was time for a major price hoick, and it was back to square one: sniffing around for a suitable alternative, preferably cheaper.
I came across a sample of the old DDML. Yes, Clinique do have a bit of a habit of giving it away. I tried it out again. And it's still fantastic. A small squeeze does face and neck. Absorbs fast, leaves skin nice and smooth and comfortable. Looks lovely, feels it too. Applied in the morning, lasts all day: in a northern European temperate climate, currently in January. And sunscreen (currently Clarins UV Plus 40) sits on top perfectly.
Even in the normal shops here, the price is on a par with many other comparable moisturisers (minimal ingredient list, no fragrance, none of my other known irritants). EUR 42.00 for the 125 ml version (and the pump one is worth paying the extra couple of euros/bucks/quid), or EUR 30.00 for the 100 ml M-Lotion, the men's version that's identical (squeezy tube). Cheaper in the UK and as usual half the price in the US (125 ml for USD 24.00, and the supersized 200 ml for USD 35.00, BOO HISS!!!); worth stocking up on in airport shopping, as a compromise.
try it as a basic mosturizer for normal skin for summer
