        So the first day I used this the second step kinda made my face feel like it was burning but it quickly went away and by the time I used step 3 it was so worth it. My face felt smoother and less blemishes by day 4. I have dry skin but get oily in my T zone.

                          Have always liked a 3-step cleansing system and this one is working well. No matter how clean you think a cleanser might get your skin, it is always surprising how much more a toner gets off your skin. The moisturizer is lightweight yet effective. I had never used Clinique prior to this purchase and I have been pleased enough that I will likely try other items in the line.

                              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!

                              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.
                              Thank you for your interest in Clinique and have a wonderful week!

                            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.

                              Hi! If your main skin goal is to minimize redness, you may want to look into Clinique's Redness Solutions System. If this is a secondary concern and you are simply looking for a nice cleansing system, I suggest using a system for a skin type #3. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                              Hi! This is a wonderful system. If you have oily skin, you should try the Skin Type #3 system. You may also want to partner it with Clinique's Acne Solution Clinical Clearing Gel. It can be used as a spot treatment with your cleansing system. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                            I'm trying to figure out which one to try, I have combination skin. Oily in my t-zone and dry on my cheeks and around my mouth. I also breakout within my t-zone and chin. Which would be best?

                              Hi! If the dryness is true tightness that you can not relieve without adding oil, you are a skin type #2. If the dryness you are speaking of is flakiness and you are not experiencing true tightness in the skin, you are a skin type #3. This is a wonderful system and I am excited for you to try it. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                            I'm usually a 4 in this line (my skin is oily to the EXTREME), but the level four doesn't come in a kit and I would love to save some money. Would this work for me, or should I just stick to the level 4 program?

                              Hi! I apologize that we do not offer this gift set in a skin type #4 formula. The soap and the moisturizer are the same, but the clarifying lotion will be different in a skin type #3 set. Using the word Extreme when you describe your oil causes me to believe that you would enjoy the entire #4 system more than the #3 gift set. We appreciate your loyalty to Clinique and again, I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

                            I have horrible adult acne on my chin, around my mouth and on my nose. These pimples sometimes come up in cyst form and some are just white areas under the skin or blackheads on my nose. Never had this problem as a teen. My face isn't dry, but it does tend to feel oily, especially in the t-zone. Some days it's so oily you could actually collect the oil to bottle. What formula do you recommend.

                              Hi! The Clinique 3 step system is an amazing system! Based on you using the term horrible acne, I would assume that you are constantly battling 3 or more breakouts at one time. If I am correct, I suggest trying something that targets breakout in a stronger way. You may want to try Clinique's Acne Solutions 3 step skin care system. It will help to treat blemishes or pimples. If you are also experiencing cystic acne, I suggest seeing a dermatologist to clear that type of breakout. Topical solutions like Clinique's Acne Solution Clear Skin System work very nicely to address blemishes or pimples that are not of a cystic nature. Thank you for your interest and have a wonderful week!
