        I wanted to love this product very badly after reading mostly positive reviews. Unfortunately, after using this product for two days my whole face broke out in little bumps. I usually have oily skin and now my skin is completely dried out and the bumps have been on my face for three days.

            This product was recommended to me. I have adult acne and have been searching for a couple years for something that works for me. I've been using this for over a week and absolutely love it! I use it morning &a night. It has not dried my skin out, it has helped clear my face! I haven't seen my face this clear in a long time! I paired this with Cliniques Acne Foundation. Love!! Highly recommend it.

                This product is AWFUL!! I bought it to help treat a few brake outs and after about two weeks of use my ENTIRE FACE BROKE OUT! I even have scaring from these brake outs they are so bad. On top of all that this product BLEACHED MY TOWELS!!!! Do not waste your money it is not worth it. I don't even think the "good" reviews on this product are real, it's just not possible that a product that will bleach your towels is in any way good for your skin!!

                  This for sure clears up acne areas. It leaves skin a little dry but I'm more oily so it's ok for me. For sure can irritate skin a little bit but not bad.

                  • Q:

                    I have moderate subsurface acne, large pores and slight redness. I wanted to know if this system would help with my pores and redness significantly or would it be best to get something from the pore and redness specific line?

                      A:

                      This product was designed specifically to treat acne. If acne is causing the redness, it will help to clear the skin, which could in turn help with the redness indirectly. If redness is a separate concern, not associated with acne, I suggest using Clinique's Superprimer Colour Correcting Primer to minimize redness. If you need more at that point, we also carry an entire Redness Solutions line at Clinique.
                      In order to treat the acne and pores, I suggest starting a basic 3 step skin care system from Clinique. It will offer cleansing, exfoliation and oil free moisture for your skin. Using a system like this will help to minimize the look of pores and acne. Again, I feel that this is a nice start, but we have additional options if necessary. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!

                  • Q:

                    I understand that the active ingredient is benzoyl peroxide, but what's the percentage? That's a very crucial detail so I'm not sure why the product doesn't state it. Thanks!
