Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly Anti-Pollution

I’ve been very fortunate over the years to have access to some of the best skincare products that the beauty world has to offer but the one product that I always seem to have trouble finding myself getting on well with is a moisturiser. 

I suffer from oily/combination skin which is both prone to hormonal break outs but can also suffer with dry patches, particularly round my nose- so you can imagine the difficult balancing act I have trying to find a cream to satisfy the dry patches without clogging the oily areas. It’s a ball ache.

I am delighted to say however that i think I have FINALLY found the answer to my moisturising prayers in the form of Clinique’s Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly.

This anti-pollution jelly has been created for all skin types and delivers 24 hour hydration PLUS it helps to repair damage caused by every day pollution. 

It is is a 100% transparent lightweight, oil-free water-jelly works to balance your skin’s moisture levels providing immediate and long lasting moisture.

It contains Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid which attract moisture and bind it to your skin while working to strengthen the skins barrier to help lock in the good (like water) and filter out the bad (pollution) using a blend of Sunflower Seed Cake, Barley Extract, and Cucumber Fruit Extract to help rebuild the skin’s moisture barrier so it is stronger and more resilient to external aggressors.

Sounds rather impressive for what outwardly appears to be a bottle of transparent jelly eh!

The product itself is a unique water-jelly type texture which offers a refreshing hit when applied to your skin and is absorbed almost instantly leaving no trace.

It is fragrance free, oil free, non-sticky and leaves behind absolutely no residue whatsoever. You wouldn’t even know that you’d applied it within minutes of it being absorbed.

What you will notice however is the way in which your skin feels instantly refreshed, nourished and moisturised. 

It feels completely weightless on your skin (which is ideal for us oily skinned peeps who can well do without thick creams clogging our pores more) and yet it also soothes and nourishes dry, cracked skin patches, allowing them to repair and heal extremely quickly. 

Its currently cold season (plus I live with two small germ spreaders *sorry kids but its true!*) so I’m constantly blowing my nose which leaves it red, sore and flaky and within days this gel had sorted my snoz right out.

I’ve not had a single break out, even a hormonal one since using this moisturiser and I’m about to place a bulk order for a whole heap more because guys, this stuff is the NUTS.

If you’re struggling to find the right moisturiser for your skin, please please please trust me and give Clinique’s Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly a go- you will not regret it!



  1. I absolutely love this! i would class it more like a serum than a moisturiser given how thin and light it is. Since its bascially HA and Glycerin you could use it before some of your more active serums if you wanted to take them down a bit

  2. I need something for combination skin and this sounds really good. I love the fact that you say it is lightweight, something else I am looking for.
