    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!

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

      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.

      This product calms irritated breakouts but fails to completely clear the skin. Without the other steps falls a little short, but is a quick fix for minor blemishes

        I thought it was weird at first being a liquid that I put on a cotton pad, I was afraid it wouldn't work but it's awesome. Doesn't feel oily or greasy and it does moisturize my skin

        This product is great! I bought the sample size first to try it out and had to go back for the bigger size! I use it twice a day and it is the only product that has seemed to help my skin. Clinique is an amazing brand. Giving only 4 starts instead of five because the smell is pretty strong.

            I have dry, sensitive skin with hormonal breakouts. This stuff cleared my face fast with no irritation. It's even clearing my sunspots. I use this twice a day. I'll never be without this from now on.

              This clarifying lotion is intended for acne prone skin but, in my 70 's, I have small cysts rather than acne. This product removes any cleansing leftovers from my pores. With regular use, the cysts have reduced markedly.

                    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.
