How Moisturizer Saved My Skin: Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion Review

When they say ‘dramatically different,’ they’re not kidding. This magic elixir is like no moisturizer I’ve ever used before. It completely changed my skin for the better.

Let me rewind a bit. About a month and a half ago, I was breaking out consistently in a way that I hadn’t since high school. At first, I suspected my skin was reacting to my dog’s tendency to curl up on my pillow when I leave the bedroom. Then, after I ruled that out, I worried that it was the beginnings of adult-onset acne. It was getting so severe that I even went as far as to start researching dermatologists and the price it would cost to go see one.

Around the house, I tried to look for possible causes. Surely there had to be a reason these zits had started to pop up all over my face. I tried switching my face wash and taking a break from makeup to no avail. It wasn’t until I tried out a sample of Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion ($26) that I started to see fast results.


When I applied the creamy formula to my face, my combination skin became incredibly soft but not greasy. The dry patches disappeared from my forehead; the oily spots on my chin stayed dry. Hours later, I could touch my cheek and still feel the lasting smooth results.

Soon enough, the pimples (what an awful word) began disappearing. I’m still not sure what caused the outbreak in the first place, but this fantastic moisturizer banished the blemishes from my face and balanced my skin.

Once I finished the sample, I ran out and bought the whole 4.2 fl ounce bottle without a moment of hesitation. I highly recommend you do too. One pump is enough to cover your whole face so it’ll last for a long time and if your skin is anything like mine, you’ll notice the changes immediately.
