A classic moisturizer gets revamped

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion has been beloved by millions since 1968 and the revamped version is even better.


A classic moisturizer gets revampedName this product:

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ (, $26)

What the product claims to do:

The product claims to strengthen the skin's barrier, increase moisture and help skin combat environmental and natural aggressors and improve its resistance to stress.

How it worked for me:

On first glance, it seemed as though nothing had changed. The bottle was bigger and better, but it still looked like the good old Dramatically Different Moisturizer. But the moisturizer absorbed into the skin as quickly as butter melts. My skin did not feel oily or taut, but just right.

How this product looks and feels:

The texture seemed silkier than the original moisturizer though the consistency felt the same. It had zero fragrance (which is a big plus for me), and went on beautifully on the skin.

What I liked about this product:

The most impressive aspect of this moisturizer is that it held up during the day. You won't really need to reapply for a good 12 hours, if that, and that's the aspect about this newly formulated classic that makes it so appealing and well worth its price tag. And for the same price compared to the older version ($26 versus $25 for 4.2 ounces), the new version is really a bargain given its added features.

What I would change about this product:

Very little, if anything.

Describe the application process, how often you used the product and for how long:

I applied it twice a day after cleaning skin.

Describe the results you saw over a week:

My skin felt immediately hydrated, and wrinkles were minimized over the course of a week.

I would recommend this product for:

Women who lead stressful lives and who want to protect their skin from environmental aggressors.
