This ubiquitous lotion is in every gift with purchase Clinique offers, and is heavily promoted all the time. What’s so special about this?

As it turns out, nothing. It’s a very basic fragrance free lotion, which moisturizes no better (and no worse) than a classic Olay lotion, except you get much more bang for your buck with Olay.

This is the dry/dry combination version. I have two tubes of this – it doesn’t make a good makeup base unless your skin is dry, or it will make your foundation/powder slide without a good primer in between this and your foundation/base makeup. It does moisturize but if you use it at night you will find that even combination skin needs a bit extra. I am not crazy about this; and if this wasn’t free I would never have purchased it. It’s just really basic and there are many comparable products at lower prices. My Shiseido AquaLabel whitening emulsion (130ml) was the same price as this and I much prefer using AquaLabel.

All in all, nothing to write home about. You probably never have to buy this even if you want to – you can get something better at Clinique during bonus time and for sure a tube will come with the bonus! 😉
