Review: Clinelle Purifying Gel Moisturizer

Assalamualaikum and hello my beautiful people!

The struggle is real. I have been perah the shit out of my brain for these past few weeks. Hahaha. But no worries. It's all for you~~

Anyways, today I wanna share my thoughts on this Clinelle Purifying Gel Moisturizer. I was on the hunt for good moisturizers for my oily combo skin. So yeah. Let's get started!

It contains Natural Moisturizing Factor to provide hydration all day long. It also helps to promote speedy scar healing plus calm soothe skin.

So I decided to buy this moisturizer because I just want to try like, if it's similar to my fave, The Body Shop Tea Tree Clearing Lotion. So I have been using it almost everyday at work. I put it in my travel makeup bag, FYI.

Just a little background of this Clinelle brand. I think it's from Hong Kong, I could be wrong. Anyways, here's a bit of their description:

"Clinelle dermatologist-tested products are created to free skin from rapid internal and external environmental aggressions. Clinelle has stepped up to the plate by coming up with a combination of botanical extracts, natural essential oils and antioxidants to repair, refine and reshield skin. All Clinelle products are formulated with 6 secrets to happy skin which exclude potential harmful ingredients that could lead to skin irritation, pre-mature aging and deterioration to skin health."

6 No's
No artificial coloring
No artificial fragrance
No comedogenic ingredients
No Lanolin
No Mineral Oil
No SD-Alcohol

So when I read the 6 No's on the package, I was quite intrigued and I straight away bought this, without reading any reviews. I purchased one Clinelle product before but I don't really like it. It was the marine scrub/mask.

It is a gel moisturizer but it felt a bit slippery. It has no scent at all, just odorless. No smell, NOTHING. So it is good for people who are sensitive to fragrance. It comes in a 30ml tube, retails at RM31.70 (RM1.05/ml). The price point is almost the same as The Body Shop Tea Tree Clearing Lotion but I recently found out Body Shop increased the price, so jadi RM65 for 50ml (RM1.30/ml). Kalau tak around that amount dengan Clinelle jugak.

Clear gel consistency

If I were to compare the Clinelle and The Body Shop, both of them have totally different ingredients, textures, scents etc. To be honest, I prefer The Body Shop one just because it is more mattifying. Plus it absorbs faster. The Clinelle one, it's just sits on top of my skin. Like, I can feel like it's not really going to dry. It just stays there. Even if I tried to massage it, it still felt slippery.

No fragrance, paraben

Slippery texture, doesn't sink into the skin (or very slow to sink in)
Tube's a mess, the moisturizer just got all over the lid cover

Final thoughts: To be honest, I hate it. So I don't recommend it because it's slippery and it doesn't look good under makeup and the tube's just super messy. I prefer the Body Shop one as it is more mattifying and sinks fast into the skin. So yeah.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

That's it guys. I hope yall find this helpful in any way.

Thank you for reading! <3
