      Comments about Clinique 3-Step Introduction Kit Skin Type 3:

      I jumped right into the full size products as a recommendation from the beauty experts at ulta knowing that I could always return the products if I didn't like them. However, even after the first use I could see immediate improvements in my skin! It felt extremely soft and looked like I had a glow instead of the normal dullness that had seemed to creep into my skin. When I bought the three full size of these products it came with a mini size sample of their sonic clarifying brush which is one of the best cleansing brushes I have ever used doesn't pull at your skin like some of the rotating brushes. I also combined my routine with their smart repair serum that is part of their new line and I know I will be happy with these products for a long time!! Definitely worth trying the sample sizes if you are unsure! I have combination skin and the step 3 was perfect.

          Excellent starter kit to see if this line is right for you. I've been using it for two weeks (with some still left over) in the morning and evening and started seeing results after the first week. My skin is softer, brighter, and the small amount of acne I had on my chin is gone. My pores seem smaller and I've had no irritation on my somewhat sensitive skin. I will definitely be going back to buy the full size of these products.

              Recently with this hot Florida weather my skin has been horrible! Oily all over, pores filled with gunk, and makeup melting off my face. I have tried EVERY product out for oily skin and nothing has been working. But I hit the holy grail with this 3 step skincare routine. My skin is clean, moisturized, and doesn't look like a bottle of vegetable oil was poured onto my face. The face was is super concentrated, so literally a pea size amount is more than enough for my face and neck. The oil control lotion (toner) is great too in the fact that it feels refreshing. Last but certainly not least, the moisturizing gel is so lightweight and honestly makes my skin feel supple. Buy this! You'll ❤️ It

                I have very sensitive skin and break out easily. Since i just started using foundation and was worried the makeup would break me out more I use this product along with the other products I use to stop breakouts. It really helps keep my face clean and soft. My favorite one is the clarifying lotion that removes dead skin and keeps my face smooth.

                  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)

                    That sounds like the perfect system for you. You sound like a skin type 3 that is in need of more exfoliation.

                    A:

                    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.

                  I'm fighting a battle with oily skin and wrinkles (which I think are being made worse by over-drying my skin with my current cleanser) - will this help at all with the wrinkle issue? Its just little tiny wrinkles that started under my eyes at the inner corner and are now migrating down my cheeks, like what the ground would look like if a pond dried up type wrinkles.

                    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.

                    Hello! If you can use an oil free moisturizer and your cheeks feel comfortable, this formula is for you. If you have a need to use an oil rich moisturizer in order for your cheeks to feel comfortable during the day, you are a skin type #2. This is a wonderful system that offers custom fit cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing! You will love it!

If you are able to use all oil free products on your skin and maintain this comfort, you are a skin type #3. You will use Clinique's Oily Skin Formula Soap, Clinique's #3 Clarifying Lotion and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.
