iv'e pretty much always had acne. I used to think i shouldn't moisturize (like most of us) my breakouts were getting worse and my skin was peeling & dry. I decided it was time and my my mother recommended it. MY FACE was so freakin moisturized when i used it that following night. Plus, the bottle lasts over a couple month PLUS with me, my brother, and my mom using it. Fast forward about 1 year later, i still have breakouts but it is 10x better than before. I didn't use moisturizer for a long time because I was scared of it. DONT BE. just because u have acne. your skin needs it after u wash ur skin. SO be good to ur skin! And never give up the fight. im sure glad that i didnt!

Great Moisturizer - Have Been Using for 5 Years Now
I've been using this product about 5 years now. Here's my regimen. Cleanser with Soft Loofah Washcloth for Face -Neutrogena Body Clear Body Scrub with Soft Loofah Washcloth for Body -Pura D'or Original Hair Thinning Shampoo -Clinique Clarifying Lotion Level 1 (Really it's a Toner) applied with a soft towel -Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing GEL applied with fingers I'm now 39 years old and this has been the best system I've used so far. I have semi oily skin so the GEL is perfect. If you have dry skin, it may not be hydrating enough. I don't really ever write reviews, but I feel that people should know that I've tried LOTS of different combinations over the years. But this is what works best for me now. Thank You, Scott

Favorite Daytime Moisturizer
Having to control my acne with Benzoyl Peroxide twice a day is a lot for my skin to handle. I need a good moisturizer to balance everything out and make sure my skin isn't looking like an oil slick but also get enough hydration. This is by far my favorite daytime moisturizer. The gel formula is great for my oily skin and it is easily absorbed making getting ready in the morning a lot quicker. The only downside would really be the price. It is Clinique and it can be costly for such a small bottle. I don't always have the budget to buy this all the time but when I do treat myself to this my skin feels at its best. And the best thing...No breakouts on this moisturizer at all.

Nuetral view on this one
After battling acne for god-knows -how-many years and trying out various lotions/gel, I gave thsi one a try. While it didnt do a miracle but didnt aggrevate my acne . All in all for any one with cystic/harmonal acne and combination skin, do give this one a try. Dont expect it work wonders from day 1, give it arleast 2 weeks to notice any difference.I use this in conjunction with calamine lotion- dab a layer over the affected areas and you will surely notice some difference. Good luck!

My absolute favorite moisturizer
I am completely in love with this product! I have a mixed skin, prone to acne, and this is my absolute favorite moisturizer! This feels very "light" on your face, and not oily at all! Would highly recommend it!

My holy grail.
I went through plenty of facial moisturizers and this one was by far the best. I have mild acne (cystic, whiteheads, hyper pigmentation etc) and very sensitive skin (eczema, scars easily etc) and cliniques gel and lotion are the only products that don't make my skin extremely oily or dry. They also don't "feel" heavy. I have never once regretted using clinique on my face - this is the same product my mom has used for 35 years. Will likely never stop buying.

Had perfectly clear skin up until I used this stuff which I paid £40 pounds for it gave me huge painful pimples all over my forehead and a few gigantic blind ones. Never buy this product unless you think enormous pussy red sore pimples look good! Nasty stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love it!
My night skin care routine- cetaphil gentle skin cleanser with clarisonic, Rentin-a 0.025 %, and this. I really like this moisturizer! It's really light and refreshing, because I use Rentin-a it can dry out your skin ( it hasn't for me yet {I have been using it for 3 days} ) this will hopefully be moisturizing enough if that happens. I only have to use 2 pumps so a little goes a long way! Not too fond of the smell but it doesn't linger at all. Great moisturizer at the moment!

Good for oily skin


Prevents oil
Non Greasy
Non comedogenic


Not suited to dry skin

I have used this quite a few times and it is a nice formula and gets rid of that "fresh out the shower" tight feeling, however I have quite dry skin (post accutane) so this isn't moisturising enough to stop flakes etc. I think this will be my saviour in the summer where I usually get really oily. I still use this most days over the top of my normal lush moisturiser as it stops me getting oily in the day (due to the silicone content). Definitely suited to oily skin if you only have minor skin dehydration.
