Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

I love LOVE this product and all the rest of the steps too! I used to have really really bad acne before a friend suggested using Clinique. I was skeptical at first because I had already gone through a few hopeless skincare routines that promised things I never really got. But after the change, I will never switch to another brand! The price for the whole set is worth it, and lasts for a good few months. Just amazing and worth it!

      This helped clear my skin within a matter of days. This clarifying lotion does not dry the skin at all. I use it as part of the 3-step program.

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

      I've been using this product over a year. It's the only toner I really like. I still have acne because of hormonal problems but it helps keep it somewhat at bay. It leaves my skin feeling clean which is what I really look for after a long day of makeup!

          Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

          I just finished my first bottle of this toner, and am now on my 2nd bottle!
          A little bit about myself...For as long as I can remember, I've always loved trying new beauty products. From foundation, to hair serums, to body washes, I love trying new things!
          I've also suffered from acne for as long as I can remember. I've had cystic acne for over 20 years (I'm 35 years old now). I've seen at least 5 different dermatologists and have tried everything from Accutane, to lotions and creams, to expensive laser treatments at my doctor's office. I seriously felt like I had tried everything, and just wanted to give up and accept the fact that I'd have adult acne for the rest of my life.
          Then one day, I was browsing the internet and came across this product. Since I had never tried it before, I thought I'd give it a try.
          My daily routine consists of washing my face with a sonic cleansing brush in the morning with a mild cleanser (the Clinique Foaming Sonic Facial Soap). Then, after I wash my face, I apply this toner with a cotton pad. I follow that step with my Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturizer. Then, I apply all of my makeup.
          I follow the same steps at night before bed, removing all of the makeup on my face. I like the fact that this toner helps snag any leftover makeup that my cleanser/brush might've missed (like around the ear and chin areas).
          My face is the clearest it's been in close to 20+ years....seriously. I don't think I've ever written a product review online, but I've been so incredibly happy with the results I received from this, I just HAD to share my story with anyone who was considering purchasing this product and may be on the fence. Please - just give it a try and see for yourself. I'm pretty sure you'll be just as happy as I am with the results!

            I'very tried other toners for my skin or even leaving out this step and my skin goes haywire every time. Within a few days of coming back to this product, the bumps on my forehead went down significantly. This is a staple in my beauty routine. It also helps to keep oily skin at bay.

            Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

            I've tried so many products to clear up my stubborn acne and nothing seemed to work. That is until I tried this product and, no joke, my face cleared up within a matter of 3 days! I was shocked! As long as you stick to a face cleaning routine with this as your go-to, It'll work like a charm!!!

                Great news! Every Clinique product is Allergy Tested and all products, excluding our fragrance itself are fragrance free. We never add fragrance to mask the smell of natural ingredients. I am noting all ingredients below. Thank you!
                active ingredient: salicylic acid 1.50%
                other ingredients: water\aqua\eau / alcohol denat. / nylon-12 / butylene glycol / hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) / laminaria saccharina extract / caffeine / sucrose / glycerin / acetyl glucosamine / sorbitol / sea whip extract / barium sulfate / 10-hydroxydecanoic acid / silica / disodium edta / benzalkonium chloride < iln32340>

              I have used the dramatically different moisturizing lotion underneath my makeup to help with dryness. Can I use this product underneath makeup also?

                A:

                You can use this product before you use your moisturizer. We have several clarifying lotions at Clinique and this one is best suited for acne prone skin. Clarifying Lotion in your customized formula will give a smoother and brighter look to the skin. It will also help to deflake the skin for longer makeup wear.
