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

    I use this product twice daily. Since using this, my skin has cleared up nicely. The product does not irritate my skin or dry it out. The cleanser is gentle, the toner is not drying and has helped with blackheads, and the moisturizer is not greasy. Will definitely buy again. My only negative is that this is on the spendy side but for great skincare it's completely worth it. I have been using this product twice daily for 2 weeks now and still have a lot left. Between cost and quantity they even out.

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

        I have combination (oily on my t-zone and dry on other areas), and sensitive skin. I rarely find a skin product that will not make me breakout. This is one of the few! I've been using this for over a month now and I love the results I'm seeing. I've also received compliments since I've been on this skin regimen. Never going back to my old regimen.

                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 :)

                      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!

                      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.

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.
