I’ve been using the dramatically different moisturizing cream by Clinique for about a month now. This product is suitable for very dry to dry combination skin types and as a person with dry skin, I was really excited to see what sort of results I would get from using this. This is a sample size of the product but the actual full size version of this moisturiser comes in a 50 ml pot. This is the perfect winter moisturising cream for me and I’ve been using it religiously, I’ve literally been taking this little pot of miracles with me everywhere. The cream feels really silky when applied to the skin and when I use this, it literally feels like I’m giving my skin a much needed drink of hydration. I like the fact this cream doesn’t really smell of anything, one of my pet hates is fragrance moisturisers because personally, they just irritate my skin.

Clinique claim that their moisturising cream can soothe even the driest of skins and that statement could not be more true for me. My own personal experience when using this cream has shown me some really great results. This winter, my skin has suffered an awful spell of dryness and as the weeks of using this cream went by, I started to notice the dry patches around my forehead and the sides of my nose were disappearing. My skin was showing a more brightened and hydrated appearance just after a week or two of using this product so I found the results to start showing quite quickly. I no longer have those horrid dry patches and the over all look and feel of my skin has been completely transformed. One of my favourite things about this cream is the fact that a little goes a long way, it’s not a product you have to use a large amount of to get that moisturising effect. I also love moisturisers that deliver the ultimate hydrating effect without the product feeling to thick or heavy on the face. I don’t feel this product is thick or heavy on my skin at all, it always feels so light on, yet my skin feels so incredibly soft after using just a small amount.
I found this product is best used morning and evening after cleansing on a day to day basis. I always find it a good idea to apply the moisturiser to the face and neck in sweeping, upwards strokes for the best results. Obviously we are only human, so sometimes we just don’t have the time or we forget to moisturise after a busy day. I hate to admit this out loud, but as a mum of two children, I am often guilty of this. I still found that even if I did forget the odd evening, that my skin still felt really soft so I was still getting those excellent results.
This is a perfect day-time moisturiser for me, in my personal opinion, Clinique have created a cocktail of skincare perfection and I will most definitely be purchasing the full size. Clinique’s dramatically different moisturising cream retails at £25.00 for the 50 ml tub so I feel like it’s fairly priced considering its so fantastically hydrating and a little goes a long way when using it.
