Pollution in the UK is getting worse, but are you taking measures to protect your skin? This new moisturiser may be the answer…

We all know that air pollution is a big problem in the UK. So it’s not surprising that beauty hall shelves are filling up with an array of products aimed at protecting our skin against damaging air conditions.

The latest release to catch our attention is Clinique’s new Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly (DDHJ), a clever oil-free moisturiser created to hydrate and repair the skin’s moisture barrier while shielding skin from pollution.

A blend of sunflower seed cake, barley extract and cucumber fruit extract all work to make skin stronger and resilient against external aggressors.

When DDHJ dropped on the Stylist beauty desk, we were big fans of its lightweight texture. Ideal for those who don’t have the patience to wait for their creams and lotions to sink in (i.e. us), the non-sticky formula absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves it feeling refreshed.

What’s more, it also contains those all-important doses of glycerin and hyaluronic acid to deliver an intense hit of hydration to thirsty skin.

The new water-jelly will join Clinique’s successful Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+, one of the brand’s most iconic skincare heroes. In fact, Clinique told Stylist that DDML+ is so successful, it sells more than 1,000 bottles every day.

If you want to get your hands on the new Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly, it drops in stores from today. We have a feeling it might become a new skincare staple.
