Clinique- Dramatically Different™ Hydrating Jelly Anti-Pollution
To say I’m a skin care lover would be quite a considerable understatement. I’m constantly switching up my routine and trying new products, so much so that my bathroom cupboard is overflowing with a wide variety of lotions and potions. And while that might sound like a beauty lover’s dream, using anywhere between five and 10 products each morning and night was becoming a little overwhelming (and causing sensitivity), which is why I wasn’t really looking to incorporate anything new into my daily skin care routine.
However, I quickly changed my tune when I found out Clinique had just launched Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly – a transparent and oil-free, hydrating moisturiser that looks and feels exactly like jelly!
Like many people, my skin becomes a shadow of its former self during the summer months. And with it constantly being exposed to a brutal combination of warm temperatures and cold office heating, it’s no wonder it’s been looking and feeling particularly dry recently. However, that quickly changed after using Clinique’s lightweight jelly.
In just a few days the moisturiser left my skin feeling intensely hydrated and plump throughout the entire day rather than just for a few hours after application. That supple feeling I was experiencing can be attributed to a nourishing blend of glycerin, hyaluronic acid and natural moisturising fact (NMF) ingredients that work to balance the water and lipid balance naturally occurring in skin.
This transparent jelly has been formulated with Clean-Shield Technology™, which promises to strengthen and protect the skin while making it 87 per cent less vulnerable to pollution. And although it’s hard to tangibly measure how well it protected me from environmental aggressors, it certainly enhanced my awareness of them.
While I’ve already mentioned how intensely hydrated the jelly left my skin, I also loved that it didn’t leave my complexion feeling overloaded or drenched in moisture. Instead, it struck the perfect balance for my combination skin type.
