Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion+; New, Improved and Out Now!

I think most of us who are into our beauty bits will have fond memories of Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion – as part of the brand’s 3-step system, it was my first taste of proper, ‘grown-up’ skincare.

Untouched for more than 45 years the product, with its distinctive velvety feeling and lightweight texture, has become a Clinique classic – one sells globally every 4.87 seconds. 

But with higher spec ingredients and new skincare technology more widely available than ever before, it was time for a change.

Freshly launched – it hit counters last week – the new version looks and feels the same but claims to have double the moisturising powers, while improving skin’s barrier strength by more than 54% in just eight weeks.

New ingredients include skincare superstars hyaluronic acid, glycerine and urea, along with botanical extracts like sunflower seed cake, barley extract and cucumber.

Light and easily absorbed, it’s ideal for this time of year or for any skintype other than very dry – if that’s you, you might need to layer this up with other products.  

It’s hypoallergenic and fragrance free so sensitive types should get along with it just fine. I’ve enjoyed it over the recent hot spell and my combo dehydrated/oily skin is loving it’s work.

Oh, and you'll need a separate SPF - which doesn't bother me at all, as I've been trying to use a dedicated facial sunscreen on a daily basis.

And the damage? Rather purse friendly, actually, which was a pleasant surprise – this is €42 for 125 ml or €24 for 50 ml. 

What do you think, would you be interested in giving it a whirl?

I have quite the same type of skin as you have. Now i am using La Roche Posay Hydraphase UV Intense Legere.
I am quite at the end of this "tube" and you would recommend me Clinique or i should stay with La Roche which works perfectly for me?

I'm probably one of the few people that was never a fan of this moisturiser, preferring Clarins. Sounds like a good face lift for the product!
Happy Wednesday Hun xoxo

Tanya, if you've found something that works for you I'd stick with it! xo

I've never used their products. Sounds lovely though, if it works, it's worth the money. As usually these kinds of products, you don't need to use as much as the ones that don't work as well, but maybe cost a little less. Super review :) xx

Clinique was my first grown up skincare routine too, I'm wondering why I don't use it anymore?

I totally want to try the new version of this! This was my first experience with "grown up" skin care too, as it was what my mom always used! :)

This post brought me right back to my early teens! :) This was my first skin care product too! I still remember the smell! Would love to try it again

I used to use the older version of this moisturizer but unfortunately I have really sensitive skin and it didn't work for me, however I do know many people who it has worked for.
