I've tried many moisturisers over the years.
I have combination skin that reacts fine with makeup, but for some reason, doesn't like moisturiser. I have tried various brands over the years, from the cheapest to the most expensive.
Putting the wrong moisturiser on my face turns it bright red and stinging. Not a good look. This has happened with so many that I have tried. Nivea worked quite well for me, but I didn't like the thick consistency which took forever to sink in and I had to wait a while before I could apply makeup.
My review today is for Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion.
The retail price is around £29.00 for a 125ml bottle from Debenhams although you can get cheaper bottles from Ebay. Some may say that is expensive but I can assure you that for the amount that you actually use, the time it takes to use a bottle up is very cost effective. Once you have paid for the original outlay, you won't regret it.
The moisturiser itself it feels incredibly light going on and sinks right into your skin without feeling heavy. You can literally put makeup straight on within two minutes. Having tried various moisturisers over the years, this is the best one I have used in all areas.
I have had no skin reactions with this moisturiser since starting to use it, and it has even cured my winterly complaint of dry flaky patches on my face during the cold periods which nothing has ever fixed before.
If you can't afford it, get it on your birthday list, you won't regret it.
