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
YBB Rating 4 out of 5
