This really does make a dramatic difference. I started using this moisturizer because my skin tends to be on the dry side and a friend of mine raved about it do I tried it. I was an Oil of Olay girl for years until she introduced me to this lotion. Within days I felt a difference. My skin has never been so soft. Since it's Clinique, it is a little pricier but the 4 oz bottle lasts for several months and the results are worth it. Highly recommended if you're looking to try something new.
