Choose from six hydration bases:
Dramatically Different™ Oil-Free Gel
Combines all-day oil-free hydration with skin-strengthening ingredients. Balances and refreshes oilier skin types. Slips on easily, absorbs quickly. Protects against skin-damaging pollution.
Dramatically Different™ Hydrating Jelly
Delivers 24-hour hydration repair plus pollution protection. Clean Shield Technology™ locks in the good—like moisture—and helps filter out the bad. Strengthens skin’s moisture barrier and improves resiliency. Unique water-jelly texture feels fresh, penetrates quickly. Formula is oil-free too.
Dramatically Different™ Moisturizing BB-Gel
BB-gel with Transforming Tint Release Technology™ delivers 8-hour oil-free hydration and a sheer wash of color that first appears as a grey hue, then transforms to naturally perfect and unify skin tone. Please note this is not a universal tint for all skin tones. See below for tint hints.
How do I know if this tint works with my skin tone?
- Use the camouflage print on the bottle as a guide to see if BB-gel is a good fit for you. The swirls represent the skin tones that are most suitable for this formula. It generally works best on moderately fair to medium deep skin tones, but it depends on the look you want. On some skin tones, you’ll see a hint of tint, on others, a sun-kissed look. We do not recommend this tint for very fair or very deep skin tones.
- Apply BB-gel like a moisturizer—not a foundation. A little goes a long way.
Dramatically Different™ Moisturizing Tone-up Gel
8-hour oil-free hydration, plus Transforming Tint Release Technology™ delivers a sheer wash of light-diffusing color that brightens complexion and boosts radiance for an all-over rosy glow.
Dramatically Different™ Hydrating Clearing Jelly
Delivers 24-hour hydration repair and visibly minimizes imperfections. Lightweight oil-free water-jelly formula with Salicylic Acid helps hydrate, balance, and visibly clear skin. Use the cartridge with this base for the most effective way to treat imperfections.
Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+™
Hydrates all day. Helps strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, so more moisture stays in. Slips on easily, absorbs quickly. Protects against skin-damaging pollution. For the best results, we recommend using one of the other bases for oil-free hydration.
How the base + cartridge combine into one unit.
Simply insert the cartridge into the base and turn to secure the two together. The first time you use Clinique iD™, you may have to pump it several times to release the booster. Notice the extra space in your hydration base? That allows for the addition of the cartridge.
Our Clinique Clean Philosophy
No parabens. No phthalates. No fragrance. Just happy skin.
