Nice Moisturizer--Broke Me Out
I purchased this about a couple of months ago. I've been using it ever since but I had to stop a couple of times. It broke me out once in a while in the spots where I applied it. It's a great moisturizer but I just wish it didn't break me out. On the plus side, it's a great moisturizer and doesn't make my skin feel extremely oily.
I recently had a disastrous encounter with some acne cream that resulted in burned, irritated skin, and this moisturiser has been amazing in helping me deal with it. It's fantastic for sensitive skin, absorbs quickly and feels light on the skin, but you definitely feel the results for ages after application. There is no noticeable fragrance, which in my eyes is a plus!
Dermatologist said no
I used to use this years ago. I would notice whiteheads on my face. Went to a dermatologist & showed her. Mind you I never really had problems with my skin. She asked me what I use & told her this. Said its the equivalent of putting butter on your face. Guessing it will clog your pores like it did mine. Never had a problem ever since I stopped. Ask your doctor & they may say same thing. I never really liked it anyway.
This is already the 2nd bottle
I have dry skin, and especially on my cheeks and on my forehead, so I have to exfoliate 3 times a week. I use this after each exfoliation, and each morning after cleaning my face, so before my make up. I think it does its job well. It hydrates my skin, without leaving it too moist or oily, because my skin absorbes it quickly. I like it, and I will continue using it ! :-) I recommend it if your skin is dry, but not like desert dry (!), for that type of skin you need something that hydrates even more, it might not be enough.
A Holy Grail Moisturizer
Okay, so this is my HG Moisturizer for my combination to oily skin.I'm on my second bottle and I started using it in late 2011.
Before, my skin will be very oily in the middle of the day. But this one, it's control my oil without making my skin dry. It's like everyday and everytime, my skin is free from oil. It's been a while since last time I saw unstoppable shine.
Well, this one great under sunscreen and powder. If I'm using foundation and primer, it will be still oily, probably it comes from the foundation.
This product will not clog pores, so it's pretty NICE!
I just use one pump and it does its magic!
Great in the Summer.
This product really does make a difference. My skin is very dry, and living in Alberta the winters make it look like a desert is on my face. I got this lotion at the end of the summer last year, and immediately saw a difference. It is very moisturizing and smoothing. However, I had to switch to something more moisturizing since it wasn't quite enough for the harsh Canadian winter. It is great to use it to supplement your moisturizer in the winter if you have super dry skin like me.
I got this as a travel size when I purchased something else from Clinique. Don't get me wrong, I love a freebie, but this was really bad. As I suffer with very dry skin, I thought this would be a saviour but it made no difference what-so-ever. It didn't absorb into my skin and moisturise my face. I also didn't like the consistency of the cream and found it a bit too runny.
