Review: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion+

In recent years my skin has generally been a lots calmer than when I had my massive eczema flare up when I was 28, but every now and again it still has a bit of a wibble.  And while I’ve invested God knows how much into trying anything and everything, I’ve never really ventured into higher end skin care because if my skin didn’t get along with it then it would be a terrible waste of money (I’ve wasted enough over the years just on cheaper products). Plus I’ve been lucky enough to find some relatively low priced moisturisers that do the trick well enough. However I’d been hearing really good things about Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion and as Clinique are known to specialise in products for sensitive skin I thought I’d give it a go. I was also curious about how much better a more expensive moisturiser would be. Are they worth the investment? Would it aggravate my eczema?

At £18 for a measly 50ml bottle the Dramatically Different lotion is probably the most expensive product I have ever tried on my skin. It comes in a pump bottle, which is great for keeping it hygienic. It’s a lotion, which to me usually implies a loose consistency suitable for applying to large areas or all over your body. However, if you used this all over your body it would have run out in no time at all so I soon found myself restricting this mostly to my face and neck.

I guess it gets the name dramatically different from the way it is absorbed – it really does just sink straight into your skin really effortlessly. It feels quite light compared to the heavier lotions and creams I am used to for my dry skin, yet did not leave my skin feeling dry or tight at all. A great product, and although I have not used it on direct eczema patches I have used it when my skin has felt pretty irritated and it has helped it get right back to normal. Clinique say it's suited to oily skin types but I found it great on my dry skin - not super nourishing but good enough, and it's brilliant to find something that soaks straight in with no rubbing.

As for why it's so yellow - I have no idea. If they're adding colour then... why?

If you have the budget for it I would absolutely recommend it – alternatively it’s a good one to have in your repertoire to fall back on As it comes in quite a small bottle size I like to take it with my as a travel moisturiser – the light consistency makes it ideal for warmer weather as well. There’s nothing worse than applying a heavy moisturiser only to sweat it all off. However, owing to the price this moisturiser just won’t become my everyday go to. Shame!
