    Comments about Clinique 3-Step Introduction Kit For Drier Skin (Type 2):

    I had clear skin up until I started using foundation... I know... I should have stayed away! I quit using foundation after i noticed my cheeks becoming irritated and bumpy, kinda like acne but not really just slightly raised and red bumps that never went away no matter how hard I scrubbed! They were still there even after stopping my use and one day I was in Ulta and came across this three step cleanse and I decided to give it a go... it couldn't hurt, right? After just ONE day my bumps were way way less noticeable. I was shocked. One month later, I have only a few.... It is INCREDIBLE! I do not have dry dry skin, I'd say it's a combo but this works great for me. Also, side note - the moisturizer is super heavy and what I found that works for me is using only a dime size, sometimes quarter size amount and I smack it on and I am good to go! I do not use this in the morning though, I would be a grease ball all day so I only use the lotion at night. If you are considering buying this, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

            First off, I'm new to the skin care product game so I've been experimenting with new products and I 100% fell in love with this 3-step kit. This product refreshed and defined my skin! I love how it's in a 3-step kit that allows you to cleanse, clarify, and moisturize. The morning after I used these products my skin didn't become greasy, instead, it was soft and hydrated. Also, this kit is very affordable and works wonders. I would have never known about it if it wasn't for Ulta! Definitely will buy this kit again...it's already in my shopping cart!

              I used to be able to use or try nearly ANY product. At this later stage in my life my skin is beyond sensitive to everything. I remember using the Dramatically Different lotion in High School over 30 years ago. This is still the same wonderful product it always was. The toner and face soap is fragrant free as well aslnd easy on my skin. I know I can use any Clinique product and not have a akin reaction.

                    • Q:

                      I just bought this kit and I was just wondering will I get the same results if I only wash my face one a day? Because I find that the step 3: moisturizer leaves my skin shiny / greasy looking so I don't want to use the kit in the morning

                        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!

                      i have dry patches around my cheeks and nose, my nose is extremely flaky, that's very noticeable after applying makeup, i use moisture surge and the acne solutions kit. would this, along with the dark sport corrector and optimizer be good to add to my routine? I'm also purchasing the broad spectrum spf 25 to add.

                        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!

                      Is the clarifying lotion an exfoliator? A little confused about how that works since it doesn't rinse off. Would I need to purchase an additional product for exfoliation?

                        A:

                        Hi! Yes, it is a chemical exfoliator that you apply to the skin with a cotton ball. The product will then evaporate from the skin. I believe you will love it, as it is a true difference maker for skin!
                        If you are looking to boost your exfoliation, you could partner it with a manual exfoliating product such as Clinique's 7 Day Scrub Cream. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                        Hi! This is a wonderful system to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize. We do suggest using a specific make up solvent beforehand when you are wearing a full face of makeup. You may want to try something like Clinique's Take the Day Off franchise. It is an amazing partner to this 3 step skin care system! Thanks for your question and Happy New Year!

                        Hi! A skin type #2 is a skin type that is tight and uncomfortable in the cheek area and either comfortable or a bit oily in the t zone. We do have other formulas available if this isn't how you would describe your skin. Thank you for your question and Happy Holiday's from Clinique!

                      So skin type 1 would be considered very dry skin? I have extremely dry skin.

                        Yes, you are correct. A skin type 1 is tight and dry all over. If you are a skin type #1 you feel very uncomfortable and would like to even reapply moisturizer during the day. Thank you for your question! Happy Holiday's from Clinique!

                      I would like to find a skincare system that is specifically targeted to minimizing pores while aiding in dry skin, uneven skin tone and texture if you can recommend a product I will greatly appreciate it especially if it is organic if possible thank you.
