    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

          This product works great. I've been using it for about a week and this is the clearest my skin has been since I was 13, I am 19 now. I use it with 10.0.6 best face forward cleanser, Mario badescu aloe and rose water facial spray and also the drying mask from badescu. This all works great.

                  I have used the Clinique acne 3 step system and I felt like that dried out my skin too much. So I just use this toner with my other cleanser and moisturizers. I used the Clinique toner, the regular kind, but I wanted something that would help keep acne at bay and away, and this seems to help. I use this at night for sure and on/off in the mornings, depending how my skin feels. I love this stuff

                      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.
