    This did not aggravate my skin but didn't do anything either. It was hard to rub into my skin while leaving a greasy and tacky film behind. After consistent nightly use, I saw no changes in my skin.

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Acne + Line Correcting Serum:

    I used this as directed and it didn't do anything. It doesn't moisturize, it didn't help acne, it doesn't feel like anything. It's thin and a light whitish in color. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I don't see any difference. I am almost done with a whole container and I will not be repurchasing.

    Finally getting back to ME!!

    By Melissa

    from Chicago, IL, USA

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Acne + Line Correcting Serum:

    I never struggled with teenage acne, however in my middle to late 20's I started getting hit hard!!!!! Not only little acne, but I would also get HUGE cysts under my skin. Some of which had to be medically drained or surgically removed... I had tired many RX creams and pills and never really saw any results. I decided I cannot be on an anti-biotic my whole life... and my insurance was only covering a portion of my creams anyhow, so I searched out and found Clinque reviews and was hopeful with what I read. I took a chance and ordered this product along with some other acne clearing products.... I am now at almost 1 month of usage and completely see a difference with my acne as well as my pores and the tone and color of my skin. I am soooo happy with this product and the cost is no more than what I was paying for an RX topical, not including the anti-biotic or co-payment for the office visit. Definitely worth the "risk" I took, I couldn't be happier with this product.

    Can't live without!!!

    By Abby

    from Indianapolis, IN, USA

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Acne + Line Correcting Serum:

    I was very hesitant to try this product because of the price, but it is worth it! I use this in combination with the Acne Gel Wash, and the combination is perfect for acne prone oily/dry combo skin types. I have also noticed a difference in fine lines and pore size. This product moisturizes my skin without leaving it oily, shiny, or break me out even more. This product would receive 5 stars if it was more affordable to purchase every month. BUT! This is a fantastic product that has changed my skincare routine forever!

      Oh my word! This product has saved my skin! I would say I have moderate acne and I would go through the motions of just letting the current zit take its course, until I started using this. I received this in a deluxe sample size (which lasted forever!)I went a few days after my sample ran out and noticed I was having more breakouts then normal. It' was because I was not using this! I ran out and purchased the full size and skin is back to normal! The price point is in line with the rest of Clinique products, but this is worth every dollar!

      Great Acne & Line Helper!

      By Jcole

      from Texas

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Acne + Line Correcting Serum:

      I've had spurratic adult/teen acne for years and with all the harsh benzoyl peroxide products I began to develop lines, particularly on my forhead and chin area, from my skin being so dried out (even with regular use of moisturizer!). This product really made a drastic difference on my forehead, aiding in my acne and almost making my frown lines disappear entirely after just one bottle! I use it regularly, only at night though due to some pilling effect and it not working as well under make-up but still it made a very noticeable difference in only a few short months!

      Finally! The one product I have been looking for!

      By Terri

      from St. Joseph MI

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Acne + Line Correcting Serum:

      I am one of that small percentage of women that had little acne trouble as a teen but since surgical menopause, I have been plagued with adult acne and after 20 years, it is here to stay. I have not been able to find an anti-aging serum that wouldn't increase my acne. Leaving a big hole in my skin care regimen. Now, I have found it in clinicique's acne+line correcting serum! I have been using 1 month and not only has my acne decreased, but I am seeing a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. I love it! It is also perfect for teens as we mature women know, it is far better to prevent the lines that will begin to make an appearance in our 20's than to try to play catch up in our late 30's. I tell all of the young women on my life to start now and you will be pleased to look younger than your friends as you age more gracefully!

      Twixt Acne & Age Management

      By KathyPomMomPA

      from Pennsylvania, USA

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Acne + Line Correcting Serum:

      This is a nice serum that helps target both concerns of aging & acne. Believe it or not, some menopausal women still occasionally breakout. On the regular system I fluctuate between types 2 & 3 - and find that even though I occasionally break out the Acne Solutions line meets my needs better. The serum is the first of the line I tried - it works better for breakouts (although it did soften some lines) have a few between my eyes that are stubborn. Am not sure do I use this before using the step 3 or after? Am thinking it's more logical to use it after step 3 (the step with the benzoil peroxide). Just need to remind myself to use an oil free moisturizer (e.g. the DD gel) as well since my cheeks tend to dry out especially in the winter. I also noticed since using this regimen about 2 months ago or so I need to use less makeup so that's a plus. Just wish it were more economically priced, especially since I have the misfortune to live in an area with a high tax rate (8%!).

      • Q:

        Could I use the Anti-Blemish BB Cream after the serum? I bought the serum, the BB Cream and the Anti-blemish foundation. Could I use the serum, then the BB Cream and then Foundation? Or would I choose between the BB Cream and the Foundation? Thanks

          A:

          It is best to choose either the BB Cream or the Acne Solutions Foundation to wear at one time. They are both nice options, but wearing one at a time will give you plenty of coverage. Thank you for your interest!

      • Q:

        I already use the Clinique Acne Solutions 3 step system. Should I be using the acne + line correcting serum after the Acne Solutions Clearing Moisturizer even if it contains benzoyl peroxide, or should I switch to using the moisturizing gel prior to the serum or stay with the clearing moisturizer?

          A:

          If you are having success with what you are using, I would stay with it. This serum could be used in conjunction with your Acne Solutions Cleansing 3 step system if you are also concerned with lines and wrinkles.

      • Q:

        I have very very pale porcelain skin and when I get acne it scars and is red for months after the pimple is gone. Is this product specifically for the scarring of acne? How long until you begin to see results?

          A:

          Hi! I would suggest Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector instead. It targets acne scarring in the most amazing way! It is the #1 selling dark spot corrector in the world, which includes acne scarring.
          You need to partner it with a sunscreen, as irritation to the skin causes more scarring. When used twice a day with a sunscreen, we guarantee 1-2 shades lighter in 4 weeks. You could notice it more quickly, but we guarantee a visible difference in 4 weeks when used correctly.

          A:

          Hello. Thank you for your interest in Clinique! Acne is caused from oil and bacteria becoming trapped beneath dead skin. Knowing this, I would assume that the type of dryness you are speaking of is dead skin verses true tightness in your skin. If that is the case, this product is absolutely appropriate. It will help to fight acne, exfoliate the dead skin and help to soften lines. It is a nice parter to Clinique's 3 step skin care system.
