First look at the new Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

Hands up, who's first "fancy" skincare purchase was from Clinique?  I remember saving all of my money from my part time job to buy the Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel and then I was all about getting my hands on the 3 step skincare system.  If you were going to America back then, it was advised to keep that under your hat because everyone would ask you to bring some Clinique home!

So last week I went to the launch of the latest product from Clinique; their Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+.


The original Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion hadn't been touched in 45 years and over six years ago, Clinique thought it was high time to give the formula a bit more oomph.  The reformulated iconic yellow lotion now gives a 54% improvement in the skin's barrier strength in eight weeks.  A good skin barrier means that your skin will be able to hold on to it's moisture better, so be adding a blend of sunflower seed cake, barley extract and cucumber extract, you'll have a grand strong skin barrier before you know it!

The DDML+ also delivers double the moisturisation levels which will leave your skin hydrated all day.  With Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Urea, the skin can absorb and retain moisture and look younger for longer.  So combine that with your strong skin barrier and you'll be a lean, mean, young looking,  moisturised face machine!


I've only been using this for a week so can't give a full review, but first impressions are good.  Really good.  You know I've got an oily t-zone and normal cheeks and it was because of said oiliness that I always used the gel version of this in the past, but felt it didn't quite give me the hydration my skin needed.  Well, DDML+ not only hydrates my skin beautifully, but it absorbs quickly and despite having all of these extra moisturising ingredients added in, still has the same consistency as the original lotion.

I'll report back in a couple of weeks with my full review, but I'll jump the gun and say that I think we're going to be very happy together.  My skin feels amazing in just a week and I look forward to using it every morning!

Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ will be on counters from July 12th and 125ml will set you back €40, or 50ml will be €24.

  1. I honestly don't think I've ever used a Clinique product at all. I'm woeful at skincare, I've only really started to even think about it over the last year or so, absolute disaster.

  5. Interested to hear your review after trying the product for a extended period of time. I have used the original DDML for 20 years and was really, really, disappointed in the new + version. SIts on the skin for hours, leaving a greasy film that doesn't come off until you wash your face. Hoping the original is brought back!

    If you want the original back please like the " Bring back the original" facebook page!

  6. I used and LOVED the original DDML for over 30yrs. I have recently had to change to a new moisturizer when they came out with the new "+" formula. It is nothing like the original formula. It is greasy and broke my face out. Please bring the original formula!!
