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

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 extremely acne prone very sensitive skin. I have run the gamut for skin product, over the counter and prescription and this kit saved my skin. This kit is the only thing that showed a visible difference to clear up my skin, calm my skin, and actually make it look freshly and happy! I totally recommend!!

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

        The directions say to use it twice a day but I have used other products that suggested the same thing and have wound up making the problem worse. So when I started using this three step kit from clinique I only used it once a day to ease myself into it. The wash works great. I have oily skin and was skeptical of the moisturizer gel but it doesn't make my skin greasy which is great. The only complaint I have is the clarifying toner has a very strong witch hazel smell which I don't really like. My skin is already clearing up and looks better and i have only been using it for a couple of weeks.Other than that it is a great product and I will be purchasing the full size kit next time.

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

        I picked up this product because my sister, who has the same skin type & skin sensitivity as I do, swears by it. I've been following the steps every day, twice a day, for about 2 weeks, and have noticed more breakouts than usual. I like that it doesn't dry out my face like other products made for oily skin, but I thought I would have seen some positive results by now. Just goes to show that what may work for one person doesn't always work for everyone with that skin type. I probably won't buy this product again, but it was worth a shot.

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

              I have tried everything for my skin... Proactiv, Murad, etc.... This is the only thing I've tried in a long time that has a good effect on my skin. I have combination skin (normally gets pretty oily as the day passes & I have to use oil absorbent sheets). This has been clearing up the un-even areas of my skin as well as evening the tone (I tend to have some pink/splotchy areas).. I love it. It smells fresh but it's overpowering to irritate my sensitive skin.

                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.

              • Q:

                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.

                  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 not experiencing oil or dryness, it sounds like your skin is comfortable. 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.
