For normally combination or oily skin, I thought this gel moisturizer would be a little bit more drying. I apply this lotion after a shower, so my face is clean and dry. While putting on, the coverage is pretty convenient, a little really goes a long way. The gel is cooling and makes skin feel really smooth. However, within an hour or so, my face feels greasy and even looks it. It seems to seal in hydration, so a greasy face is something I can live with if I am just going to bed. But after I began to use it, it seemed to make the areas of my cheeks right next to my nose feel extra oily, and I have had a few small pimples in the area after I started using this pretty often. The gel is really nice and cool, and smooth on skin. I definitely feel like my face is softer, but I am pretty sure this is what's leading to a breakout. Maybe it wouldn't do this normally on someone else's face, but a sample size of it is a decent price to try out if you're looking for something new. Clinique makes reputable products, so I'm going to keep toying with this moisturizer to make sure I get the best use out of it, but I am probably going to wait until summer when my face is normally a little more dry.
