    I bought this for my 11 year old daughter as she is having a little breakout on her nose.
    I have used Clinique for 17 years so why wouldn't I use it on my daughter.
    She is very happy with the results!

        One of my problems was blackheads and I've been using it for about almost 2 weeks and have noticed an incredible difference.. I use to have bumps on my chin from whiteheads and those have completely diminished as well.. It stings a little bit and also dries me out a little but I always think the stinging means it's working LOL.. I use the Clinique surge moisturizer and it seems to balance it all out

            This is a strong one so be careful if you aren't used to strong products. It's my go to toner I. The summer but also use it year round to spot treat my breakouts. It has a powder that keeps my t-zone pretty matte all day. Again if you aren't used to stronger products it may not work for you, since it can cause dryness and some peeling.

            I've used this whole line for the past 6 months and after some trial and error my skin has seen dramatic improvement. I started having acne in my late twenties and I tried a myriad of gentle/natural remedies. I gave this a chance after talking to my girlfriend and I've been in love ever since. It doesn't irritate my skin but it can dry you out so I paired it with the dramatically different mosturizer and BAM!! This stuff really works. I'm so happy I went out on a limb with this line

              Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

              I've had oily/acne prone skin since puberty (I'm now 25). I've tried too many different products to count including products from a dermatologist, and I'm also on a birth control that has made my acne worse over the past two years (including cystic acne) UNTIL THIS MIRACLE PRODUCT. When I first started using it I was applying morning and night every day and it did dry out my skin some so I switched to only using it about every other day. After several months of use I'm back to using it morning and night just about every day with no problems.

              I've tried several different toners in the past and nothing removes the excess oil, dirt, and makeup like this product. Even after washing my face with THREE different cleansers I apply this and still find makeup that was left behind.

              Anytime I feel a pimple/cyst coming I apply this and it dries it out in no time (the soonest clear up has been over night).

              Although everyone's skin is different I cannot recommend this enough for anyone with my skin type! Completely worth every penny.

                  Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

                  I used this product in grade school when I started to have bad acne and it worked for me. I am now 19 years old and wanted to try it again for my oily acne prone skin and this stuff is absolutely terrible. After about 2 days of use, It dried my skin up terribly and made my skin have a strange bumpy red texture all over. I was shocked because this has never happened to me with any other skincare product, and I have tried almost everything to help my acne. I am currently using the body shop's tea tree oil skincare line and I think it's working well for me

                      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.
