            I had a bad case of menopausal acne in combination to bad allergic reaction to a facial cream. After following the recommended treatment for the alergy I couldn't find a product that would keep my skin feeling clean and clear my acne issue. I order this product just to try it because it is for combination skin. My acne cleared within two to three days and the redness left by the alergy is almost gone after daily use for about two weeks now. The down side is that my cheeks feel a bit to dry after use since they are normal but it works beautifully on the oily areas or "T zone" of my face. The plus side of this product is worth a bit of dryness after washing which is easily resolved by adding more moisturizer to the more normal or dryer areas of the face.

              I've only started using this a few days ago and I've already seen some improvements with my face. I was a long time proactive user and lately it had been irritating my skin and I was very prone to breakouts. Clinique has calmed it down and I'm happy with the switch.

                  I was looking for something to reduce redness and get rid of my oily skin on t-zone. I've never tried a Clinique product before so I was hesitant. This is by far the BEST face wash routine I've ever used and I've used sooooo many. I get breakouts and have combo skin and I hated looking oily throughout the day and this routine has left my skin so smooth and bright and reduces the size of a pimply over night!! I do use a night cream to help extra with my redness but alone the kit is amazing as well. My pores look smaller and my skin has never felt better

                    I ordered this for my daughter. She's almost 15 and she has very oily skin but with dry areas and was getting mildly painful acne. This was really just another stab in the dark for us but Im so glad we tried it. It's a name brand that I also use and one that I trust. Its only three quick steps and salicylic acid was not in it. For those who don't know salicylic acid can be very irritating and drying, and it can worsen things, so unless you have very bad nodules I would stay away from it. Any way, this product was the perfect amount of clean and her skin has finally cleared up. It's not a miracle worker, she's still oily but it's not as bad and the dry areas are much better too. This stuff is now a staple in her daily routine.

                    I have been using this product for about 45 days now and I am not 100% happy with the results. While the system did make my skin softer and more radiant, I almost feel that it made my oiliness and acne worse.
                    The product feels very light, like it's not even there, but the moisturizer makes my skin feel so oily. I went from having maybe 4 pimples a day to my entire forehead breaking out.
                    I understand that some products don't work for everyone, and this one clearly just isn't for me.

                        Hi. I am assuming that the dryness you are speaking of is flakiness if your skin becomes oily during the day. If this is the case, boosting your exfoliation with this set will make an amazing difference! I suggest that you use the skin type #3 system if I have described your skin correctly. Thank you for your interest and enjoy!

If you are looking to minimize acne scarring and discoloration, I suggest using Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector plus Optimizer. It is guaranteed to help fade discoloration when used with a daily sunscreen. Thank you for your question!

                      I have really dry skin around my mouth and on my cheek bones, but oily skin on my forehead, chin, and my nose, as well as enlarged pores on my nose. My skin is also really sensitive- just about anything will make me break out. I'm looking for a daily cleanser, as well as a moisturizer that wont increase my oily spots or make me break out. Will this "Type 3" skin care work for my skin type? (Clinique rated me as a combination oily on their site)

                        If you have constant breakout and battle three or more pimples all of the time, you may want to try Clinique's Acne Solutions Clear Skin System instead. If you are battling only cystic acne, I suggest seeing a dermatologist, as that type of breakout is hormonally induced.

                        A:

                        The Clinique 3 step skin care system is a great place to begin! The more healthy your skin is, the faster that repair can occur. This system also provides exfoliation, which will help to minimize the look of lines as well as prevent the oil from clogging the pores. For maximum results, use the system twice a day. Perfect partners are Clinique's Smart Custom Repair Serum and daily sun protection.
