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

    I'm a sophomore in high school, so I'm kind of in the worst stage as far as teenage acne typically goes right now. Prior to this product, I was using a 15 dollar skincare routine called AcneFree that I got from a shopping center that was cheap, full of smelly chemicals, and often dried my skin out. I should have stuck to that. While this routine made my skin softer than it has ever been, and made me glow like a queen, I started noticing little breakouts on my forehead about a day after I started using this, but I attributed this to the fact that I was on my period, and that this routine could take some getting used to. Well, after a little over a week on it, I got a huge, cyst-like pimple on my forehead, something I haven't gotten in half a year. I also got breakouts on my cheeks and chin, and I have possibly more blackheads on my nose than ever. I realize that one should wait a few weeks before discontinuing use of a new skin care system, I got that huge breakout two days before my first day of school. I reverted back to my cheaper skin care system, and my skin is already clearing up. I will say that I like the moisturizer, and will probably buy a larger size in that for my drier patches. I have oily combination skin with hormonal acne, and I play a sport and get sweat and grime on my face a lot, so I needed something a little stronger to suit my skincare needs. That being said, this product may work better for people who are a little older than I am and do not have teenage acne. I will be returning this product to see if I can get a refund.
    Hope this helped someone!

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

        Unless you want to take a chance on developing a horrible rash all over your face, I suggest to move on to another product line. I have the worst itchiest rash all over my face. It's caused major discoloration and forcing me to go to the doctor tomorrow. I don't know why this stuff is still on the shelves. They know it is a problem. Just search Clinique three step rash and read the horror stories. Never will I buy from this brand again.
        Bottom line I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy.

            Wow this has been amazing! I have been using this for almost 2 weeks. I am in my late 40's and have been having some serious strange breakouts. I never have breakouts ever. This stuff is amazing. I use it every morning and night and it is clearing up my skin. I am still having some breakouts but it is really doing an amazing job. My skin is super oily and it is really helping. Fingers crossed it continues to work because I bought the full size bottles!!!!

                A:

                Hi! I am sorry to hear this. Everyone's skin is unique, but at times when you begin a new skin routine, you may experience a bit of activity in the beginning. It should not last more than 30 days. It looks like you are using the type 3 system, which is all oil free. If you are experiencing breakout it is probably tied to clearing the pores to keep them clean. I look for your skin to clear quickly. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                A:

                Hi! It is very normal to change your system from one season to the next season. If you are experiencing oilier skin at this time, you should start with the system for a skin type #3. In the winter, we should skin type you to see if you should bump down to a different soap and moisturizer based on your skins changing needs. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                A:

                Hi! It will help to fight acne that is not persistent. It is an amazing option for anyone that has breakout once a month. If you have several areas of breakout at all times, you may be a candidate for Clinique's Acne Solutions Clear Skin System instead. Your system can be determined by the level of acne you are experiencing currently. If you would like to be skin typed, we offer this free service in all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product each day. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Hi! If the dryness in the cheek area can be relieved with an oil free moisturizer, then you are in need of hydration only, which means that you would need the kit for a skin type #3.
                On the other hand, if you need an oil rich moisturizer to feel comfortable in the cheeks, then you would need the system for a skin type #2.

              I have an oily t-zone, but a very dry forehead for some reason. I also suffer from minor rosacea. I would not say that my cheeks are necessarily where the dryness occurs. Can you please suggest type 2 or 3.
