Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ 125ml with Pump
An excellent moisturiser
I used Clinique Dramatically Different moisturiser for about 10 years, switching to the more expensive Elemis in the last 18 months.
I was therefore very interested to try Dramatically Different Moisturiser Lotion +, a new formula which is supposed to help strengthen skin's moisture barrier (whatever that means) to keep moisture locked in, which can only be a good thing.
The moisturiser is really easy to apply and absorbs easily into the skin. A word of warning though, if you apply too much in hot weather, you may "glow" a little too much. One pump is perfect for my face.
My face was quite sunburnt and I don't like applying after-sun to my face as it's too greasy and can cause breakouts, yet some face moisturisers are not moisturising enough on sunburn. This product was absolutely brilliant, leaving my skin soft and well moisturised. There was no tightness whatsoever and I didn't need to re-apply it. This really is such a versatile product.
Clinique is reasonably priced compared to its competitors (It is a similar price to the Origins moisturiser I recently tried, another product I used to use regularly) and really is excellent. You can buy a smaller bottle if you're not sure about the price to see whether it works for you.

Light yet luxurious
I never used the forerunner of this, even though for years just about everyone I knew raved about the stuff. I was most interested to see what the new, improved version was to bring to my rather dry, parched, sun weathered complexion. The pros to this product are the lovely bottle, great pump dispenser and whilst the lotion is very light, it feels luxurious. My only gripe is why on earth is there no SPF in this product? Personally, I just cannot be bothered to apply a separate moisturiser and sun barrier. Therefore I will continue to use this as a night cream because especially at present with the sunny weather, it does work well as an aftersun. However due to its lack of an SPF, I will not use it as a daycream and therefore may not purchase it again.

Very good moisturiser
I really liked this, very moisturising and left skin nice and smooth.
The reason I have only marked 4 stars is because I felt it just a little heavy, so prefer to use either night time or in winter. For summer I prefer a moisturiser that has more than one function nowadays, such as hint of colour/camouflage (ie. BB) , and also SPF.
All in all very good, but personally more for night time/winter.
