Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

I use this his product as step two of a three step cleansing process. This product works well on acne-prone skin and sensitive skin. I use it daily and usually don't experience any dryness or peeling. Once in the morning and once at night is sufficient. Any more frequently and peeling or irritation can occur. It has a pleasant scent and dries quickly. The texture of my skin is smoother when using this product. My only wish is that this product should be available in larger than 8 ounces. I have to purchase two bottles to ensure I make it through the month.

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

      Usually within a few hours my skin was oily under my makeup causing it to separate around my nose. Tzone was a mess! I have been using this before my makeup routine and I haven't had a problem since! I never have to retouch my makeup or blot my skin from being shiny! Love this product!!

          Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

          Was just recommended this today and just got done using it. I put the product on a cotton pad and applied. I have some open zits and it did sting them pretty bad but in the places where I didn't pick at my acne it felt good. defiantly a strong toner, so hopefully it works to help clear my acne!

            I have super dry skin so I wasn't able to use it everyday at first but now I use it once a day and it's like perfect. I week after I started using this I had a weekend full of events so I wore foundation three days in a row from early morning to late night and normally I avoid wearing foundation because it breaks me out but with using this not only did I not break out my skin actually still got better. It works just as well as a prescription cream my dermatologist prescribed me except dries me out less and is way cheaper! I'll be buying this again for sure

                I would like to know the ingredients in this.
                Specifically, what is the percentage of Salicylic acid?
                Just want to make sure there is no added fragrance or parfum.

                  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!

                  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.
