I believe most of us here heard or use Clinique before at some point in our life!
I am not sure if I mentioned this before that Clinique is the first brand I bought when I first got my paycheck. I got myself Clinique 3 step set and my personal favourite at that time was Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion ( DDML) because the texture was nice and it does somehow keep my skin moist!
Who can forget their advertisement of 3 Steps for Great Skin at RM 1.62/day, such an affordable price for a counter brand!
In case you don't know, Clinique is a dermatologist developed brand where dermatologist Norman Orentreich MD worked with US Vogue editor Carol Phillips and Evelyn Lauder (daughter-in-law of Estée) back in 1968 to develop a brand that brought dermatological thinking to cosmetics. Clinique is founded on the philosophy that great skin can be created with a simple 3 steps routine; i.e Cleanse, Exfoliate and Moisture.
After 45 years, today Clinique finally decided to came out with a NEW formula for one of the best seller moisturizer that will now double the moisturization levels for comfortably hydrated skin all day without an extra drop of oil and promise an increase of 54% improvement in skin’s barrier strength in 8 weeks
With the same design bottle, this new formulated lotion is now named as Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + (spot that plus sign!) promises to give better moisturizing effect and strengthen the skin barrier so that less moisture escape from our skin!
In order to help strengthen the skin’s barrier giving it more resilience against environmental stresses, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + formula contains of a blend of sunflower seed cake, barley extract and cucumber extract! It also incorporates 3 NEW moisturizing ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid, Glycerin and Urea that not only give better moisturizing effect but allow our skin to retain that extra moisture so that your skin remain hydrated throughout the day.
This Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + is recommended for people with with Very Dry and Dry Combination skin skin types.
Janet Pardo, the Senior Vice President, Global Product Development, Clinique said that in Clinique Allergy Tested would meant each formula is tested on 600 people twelve times for a total of 7,200 applications. If a single one of those 600 shows an allergic reaction, the formula is rejected. With such a stringent test by Clinique, we are rest assured when you use Clinique products.
I love how they still remain their texture where it is very lightweight & absorb immediately when I applied on my skin.
Review of Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + :
I have been using this Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + for some time and I do really like how it felt on my skin! It works well for me, making my skin soft and “toing-toing” after a long day under the sun or air conditioned room. Although the texture is really lightweight, I do not need to apply a lot on my skin as a little amount of 20 cent coin size is sufficient to keep my skin hydrated all day long. I love waking up with my my skin feeling soft and supple and make up seems to stay longer when my skin is properly moisturized! So I guess I would be back using this moisturizer for a while and give a miss to all my brightening/anti-aging/whitening products for a moment :D
I do think the new formula is dramatically different from the old one because the hydration lasting power is longer and it makes my skin feels really supple and nice throughout the day!
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + is priced at RM68 for 50ml and RM145 for 125ml. Available in all Clinique counters nationwide starting July.
