Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ Review!

12 November 2014

Sick of dry skin? & Oil laden thick products? Enter Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion (DDML), now with a plus sign!

Must add + as its the new reformulated version of the classic 1968 born DDML. Basically they just added more skin-soothing agents, a bit of Hyaluronic acid and made the consistency a tad thinner.

I've been using this moisturizer for years & its the only one that never disappoints! Can I call it my HG (Holy Grail) moisturizer?

- DDML+ is a lightweight & effective daily facial moisturizer. It's a pale yellow lotion with thin consistency.

-Suitable for super dry and dry combination skin i.e. Skin types 1 & 2 according to Clinique's skin system.

- Contains No SPF so great for both day and night!

- Slather it on at night if you wish to soothe, replenish & re-hydrate your skin for the next morning.

- Wears well under foundation, preventing dry patches and flaky skin.

- Fragrance-free. Claims to be suitable for sensitive skin as well.

- Hyaluronic Acid provides long lasting moisture and helps retain it too. Glycerin in it attracts/draws moisture from air to your skin. These ingredients keep your skin hydration levels optimal. Cucumber extract helps to soothe skin.

- The rate at this thing absorbs in is crazy!

- The + version looks more dewy in person.

Verdict: I'll confess that I loved the earlier version more, for no particular reason. I'm growing to accept this one now as the older one is discontinued. No choice really!

If you have super dry skin & are looking for a light and effective grease-free moisturizer, this is it! Ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin, Urea do the double job of preventing moisture loss from skin and attracting some from the environment too, giving you long lasting hydration. It's great as a night time treatment if you are suffering from flaky, dry or irritated skin.
There is another version in Gel form that suits oily skin.
It's a bit expensive for the job but if you have the moolah..go ahead! I always seem to fall back to it no matter how far I venture out.
I'd suggest buying it duty-free. It's a lot cheaper and often comes in value gift sets!

Price: $69 for 125 ml.

Buy from: All leading pharmacies and beauty stores.
