        I've been using these products everyday for almost two months. I have had so many compliments on how good my skin looks. After washing my face twice the 2nd step pulls out more dirt from my pores and it amazes me that I have dirt their after washing and exfoliating.

          I don't regret my choice to try this clinique introduction kit. My skin gets better and better each day. I feel as if my skin is returning to my pre large pore and pre sun spot days. I can't see myself going back to a simple regular face wash. My face is spoiled now for sure! I recommend asking a clinique professional which step system will work best for your skin. Then, try the intro kit to see if your skin reacts positively with these products. I love mine! I hope you love yours too :)

              I didn't really like this product, as it was very drying and not effective, nothing compared to Clinique's
              Moisture Surge and All About Eyes - those two are very effective.

                I use this 3 step system as my daytime routine but can be used for day and night routines. I had setbacks for the gel moisturizer because my skin is so oily but I was completely blown away by the product. No residue, lightweight, and soaks right into my skin. The clarifying lotion is awesome to. A long time ago I used astringent and stopped because it was burning my skin. So I switched to a toner. I was afraid the clarifying lotion would have astringent vibes but once again I was mind blown by these products. No burning and super lightweight!! My skin has never felt and looked better.

                      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!

                      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!

                      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.

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.

                  • Q:

                    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?

                      A:

                      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!
