      I don't like how my face feel after using this product. The cleanser doesn't feel like it's cleaning my face, the toner has a strong smell and the moisturizing gel is too sticky. Was let down by these products.

                I use it twice daily in the morning and before bed. it does not irritate my skin and leaves it soft after use. I never put on my make up right after my face mask wash whatever i do, typically wait at least an hour before applying makeup. I definitly recommend this product.

We are launching one with an optimizer next month and the Even Better line is amazing!! Even Better Dark Spot Corrector is the #1 selling dark spot in the world.

                          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.

                            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.

                            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!

                          How do you decide what number you are if you are in between? I'm not oily at all and my skin is not really dry. I do have dry areas sometimes in the winter but thats 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.
