Crystal clear, lightweight and oil-free Clinique has a new addition to thier skincare lineup that promises to keep your complexion moisturised for up to 24 hours.
Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly, $69.
What is it?
A transparent, oil-free, water-like jelly formula that sinks into the skin in seconds to moisturise and protect your complexion from environmental damage.
What's in it?
Glycerin and hyaluronic acid, are moisture magnets and brilliant for hydrating quickly, once blended with antioxidants including sunflower seed cake, barley, and cucumber extracts this combination both strengthens and nourishes the skin. But it's the clever addition of an ingredient the brand called 'clean shield technology' that got us excited. This leaves an invisible barrier on the skin's surface to lock those hydrating ingredients in the skin and keep the grime from everyday pollution out.
Who can use it?
Any skin type will benefit from this moisturising, protecting jelly.
What do we like about it?
The latest buzz in beauty are formulations such as gels and jellies. Born in Asia they work well in a humid climate and are popping up in skincare products such as cleansers, moisturisers and face masks, all the time. And for a good reason, they're soothing and absorb in seconds and suit all skin types, especially dry skin, which adores jelly. This formula is also great for suspending goodies like antioxidants, nourishing plant oils and micelles (magnetic cleansing beads) in the liquid-like medium. A great addition to the Dramatically Different Moisturising range it's not only refreshing and hydrating, but it's fragrance-free and so versatile.
How do we use it?
It can be applied morning or night over a serum and is ideal under makeup or to nourish skin at the end of a busy day. One tip: A little goes a long way, you only need two pumps for the face and neck.
