      At first, the toner made my skin tingle but I don't think it's anything bad it's probably cuz I never used a toner I suppose it was removing all the filth from my pores. It has helped reduced my forehead pimples, reduced zits from occurring, and hydrated my dry skin.

          There was nothing wrong with the product itself, but it just wasn't for me. I suffer from moderate acne and mild rosecea. This product didn't do much to improve either issue and seemed to make my acne worse. But if you don't suffer from either of those issues this would probably be a good product to try.

                    Hello I would like to know which can be my best choice for the kits or if i should buy each separately. I have dry/cakey look around my cheeks, nose and on top of my mouth, but I also notice that my skin gets oily in these areas and makes my pores look bigger.. I am not sure if I should use #2 or #3 kits or if ishould get #2 clarifying lotion and maybe #3 moisturizer gel. Can you give me any advices because I want to be able to dont have these cakey patches but I also need to control the shine.. and imnot sure if #2 moisturizer will be too shiny or too oily on my skin.. can you give me any suggestions for each step product. Thanks

                      A:

                      Hi! If the dryness you are experiencing is tight and uncomfortable then you are a skin type #2 and this Kit is for you. If you don't experience any tightness at all in your skin and the dryness you are speaking of is only flakiness that you can see, you are a skin type #3. Keep in mind, flakiness that you see on the surface of the skin is not dry skin but a buildup of dead skin cells that need to be exfoliated. If you are a skin type #3, you would use Oily Soap, Clarifying Lotion 3 and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Thank you for your question and have a great week.

                      Hi! This is a great kit! If you are experiencing acne, and have skin that feels comfortable or you experience a bit of shine on the skin, you are a candidate for the skin type #3 system.
                      The #2 system was designed for someone that experiences areas of tightness, and an uncomfortable feeling.
                      If you would like additional help finding the correct system for your skin, feel free to send additional questions or visit an Ulta store near you that carries a FULL line of Clinique products. We are happy to help.

                    Hi. I was looking into trying the Clinique skin care line. I have very dry skin. So would the type 2 kit be good for me or would I be skin type 1? Also, is there a kit for skin type one or just certain products you reccommend? As I said I have very dry skin .. especially on my nose and cheek area. Thanks!!

                      A:

                      Hi! Thanks for your question. If the dryness that you feel is all over the skin, and there are no areas of comfort, you are a skin type #1. If there are areas of comfort, you are a skin type #2. Please keep in mind that flakiness that you see on the surface of the skin is not dry skin. It is dead skin, which is absolutely normal. Please only classify true dryness as tightness that you can feel in the skin. It is a tight and uncomfortable feeling.
                      If you are a skin type #2, the kit is created for you. If you are a skin type #1, you can use Extra Mild Soap, Clarifying Lotion #1 and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream.
                      If you do not experience any tightness at all in your skin, and the dryness you are speaking of is only flakiness that you can see, you are a skin type #3.

                      A:

                      Hi! Yes, you are correct. The skin type 1 set is for extremely dry skin. You are a skin type 1 if you have no areas of the skin that feel comfortable. In this instance you would use extra mild soap, Clarifying lotion 1 and dramatically different moisturizing cream. We do not have a starter kit including these specific items, but we do sell them individually. If you have a couple of areas that actually feel comfortable and your cheeks are truly the only areas that feel tight and uncomfortable, you are a skin type 2. We do offer a starter kit in this system. I hope this helps to determine your skin type, as both skin types experience dryness in the skin. Have a great week!

                      A:

                      Hi! If your cheeks feel tight and uncomfortable without a moisturizer that contains oil, you are a skin type #2.
                      If your cheeks fee comfortable during the day, and you can either use an oil free moisturizer, or you can even go without a moisturizer at times, you are a skin type #3.

                      As for the acne scars, Clinique sells the #1 selling dark spot product in the world! It is called Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector plus Optimizer. You can find additional details at Ulta.com, but I believe you will love the results you see! It is guaranteed to fade the dark spots 1 - 2 shades in 4 weeks when used with an SPF twice a day.

                      A:

                      Hi! If you feel like the moisturizer is too heavy, you could actually be a skin type #3. If you are in fact a skin type #2, your cheeks will feel tight and uncomfortable without a moisturizer. A skin type #3 should feel comfortable in the cheek area, and it sounds like that is what you are experiencing. If this is the case, the #3 kit has an oil free moisturizer that you will enjoy more. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                      Hi! If you are currently using the Acne Solutions Clear Skin Kit, you would not need to add an additional 3 step skin care system to your routine. If you are adding the Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector, that should help with the flakiness that you are experiencing around the nose area. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                      Hi! It sounds like you are primarily experiencing dehydration, which means you are a candidate for the skin type 3 system. Oil is one of the factors that causes acne, so it is not a good idea to add more oil. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!
