My absolute favourite skin care brand has to be Clinique.
The beauty company products have been in my bathroom cabinet for many years now, as they always produce high quality products that is gentle on my skin. Clinique have just released a new moisturiser, The Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly Anti- Pollution. As soon as it was released I ordered a bottle to try out as part of my daily skin care routine. As I am getting older I am more conscious about looking after my skin and using the right products to keep my face looking fresh. Long gone are the days when I can get away with using body cream on my face, now my skincare routine is a military operation.
The Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly is an extremely light formula and has a water-like consistency. The jelly contains hyaluronic acid which improves the health of the skin, leaving a youthful glow and a fresher appearance. Hyaluronic acid works by plumping up the skin by sucking in moisture, so it is great for wrinkles and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid is produced from wheat stalks and is one of the safer acids to use on the face as it does not strip the skin, so there is absolutely no irritation when the jelly is applied to the face. There is also no fragrance, this is perfect for me as sometimes beauty products with a fragrance can cause skin sensitivity, such as itching or breakouts. So if you have sensitive skin I would recommend trying out The Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly.
As we are having a little heat wave in London at the moment, the jelly has been great in the hot weather working as a light moisturiser, as soon as it is applied it sinks into the skin and no greasy film is left. So you are not left sticky or feeling weighed down in the heat. Even though the formula is so light the jelly still keeps my skin moisturised and smooth to the touch.
The jelly also has other great qualities such as it works as a pollutant protectant, this is great if you are a city girl to provide protection from all of those nasty air pollutants.
The product also contains no parabens and can be used on all skin types.
The formula is also oil free. My skin type is oily combination and my T-zone can be ridiculously oily, so I prefer to use a lighter moisturiser, as I don’t want added oil to my skin especially when I go make up free. This jelly did a fab job of maintain a hydrated appearance without appearing shiny.
As usual Clinique have produced a great moisturiser with brilliant results. I have been using the moisturiser twice a day, in the morning and at night and my skin not only looks great but it also feels fabulous too.
Don’t forget to comment, let me know what moisturisers you are using at the moment.
