Here’s Moira’s YBB Rating for use on dry to very dry skin 

As someone who struggles with dry skin, I know it can be a challenge to find a moisturizer that actually keeps your skin hydrated all day. I decided to give Clinique’s smart custom-repair night moisturizer a try because I know they have great products. The consistency of the moisturizer is quite thick and creamy. When applied, it leaves your skin feeling very hydrated but not greasy. Your skin feels hydrated all day long. I applied the moisturizer in the morning around 8, and my skin still felt hydrated at 11 PM. This moisturizer is definitely intended for people with dry or very dry skin. In terms of the scent, I wasn’t wild about the smell, while it is unscented, it does have a chemical like scent to it. As much as I loved this moisturizer, I will probably look for something more affordable once it runs out.

Consistency: Thick, creamy consistency

Scent: Slight chemical smell

Hydration: Extremely hydrating

Long-lasting: Hydration lasts all-day

Value: Pricey, for the amount of product 

Skin Types: Dry to very dry skin types

Worked as expected: Better than expected

Pros: Extremely hydrating, hydration lasts all day, great for very dry skin

Cons: Pricey, not very much product, not wild about the smell
