Such a fantastic idea. Take your base and add your active. I’m using the oil control base and have added the cartridge to even out skin texture.

Clinique iD Base

Choose from five hydration bases:

Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+™
Perfect for very dry to dry combination skin. Hydrates all day. Helps strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, so more moisture stays in. Slips on easily, absorbs quickly. Protects against skin-damaging pollution.

Dramatically Different™ Oil-Control Gel
Perfect for oily skin. 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
Perfect for all skin types. Delivers 24-hour hydration repair plus pollution protection. Clean Shield Technology™ locks in the good—like moisture—and filters out the bad. Strengthens skin’s moisture barrier and improves resiliency. Unique water-jelly texture feels fresh, penetrates quickly.

Dramatically Different™ Moisturizing BB-Gel
8-hour oil-free hydration and a sheer tint of colour naturally perfects and unifies a range of skin tones. It starts as a grey hue that you rub between your fingertips before applying to ensure the encapsulated pigments bloom. Please note this is not a universal tint for all skin tones. See below for tint hints.

  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles (Purple Cartridge) – intensely hydrates and firms to reduce the signs of ageing with Whey proteins.
  • Uneven Skin Texture (Blue Cartridge) – minimises pores and improves skin’s overall texture with AHAs. (This is the one I have been using.)
