How moisturizing is this?

Quite moisturizing. Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion - Light/Medium has a moisturizing rating of 4.2 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive?

Purely humectant. It has a very high Humectancy of 8.5 out of 10 and zero Occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusives on the ingredient list).
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.

Function
Origin
The most used ingredient in skincare. Its concentration defines the product texture: rich creams may have about 50% of water while a light jelly about 90%. Water doesn’t moisturize the skin by itself and is used in skincare as a solvent for other ingredients.

A synthetic liquid that serves as a humectant. It also works as a solvent because of its ability to dissolve a wide range of ingredients.
