        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion:

        I use this product after cleansing with a simple cleanser and only before bed. My skin is naturally very oil, so I only wear moisturizer during the day. My acne and blemishes disappeared in about two weeks! One bottle lasted me several months. I will continue to buy this product again. At less than $20, it's far more feasible than products that I've purchased for three times this amount and have hardly been satisfied with. No more jumping from brand to brand in hopes of a clearer complexion. Once again, Clinique comes out on top as a LIFESAVER!

        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.

            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!

              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.

                A:

                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.
