Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I was using the Clinique oily to oily cleanser, and I noticed I was breaking out and the cleanser was not working well to control it. After reading reviews about this product, I decided to try it. As I was running low on my cleanser I said "sure, why not". I've been using it for 3 days now and I can see the difference on my skin! I cant wait to see my results in a month. I have very oily skin, so it does dry me out but I always follow up with Clinque serum moisturizer gel, after applying my clarifying lotion(toner). I also have sensitive skin, and have no irritation. This product is becoming one of my favs =] Throughout the years I've used a lot of different OTC brands and they all dried out my face bad/irritated or broke me out even more =/ so I'm finally glad I found the one!

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

    I have been using this product for a year now and it has improved my skin significantly. I've tried numerous products to help clear my skin, but have never been effective. This product along with the clarifying lotion and treatment have worked flawlessly. My skin is so clear and smooth. Of course a get one or two breakouts, but that is around the time I get my menstrual. Besides that, It works!

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

    I think the type of cleanser you use depends on what type of acne you have. I always struggled with blackheads not so much whiteheads so I prefer to use and exfoliant. I tried this out once and it didn't really do anything for me. It didn't make my blackheads worse or cause whiteheads, but it also didn't clear my blackheads. Maybe if you have different acne than me it might work better.

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

      My holy grail cleanser, I use the whole line everyday. I had terrible acne for years until I finally tried this (I have combo skin, very oily t zone). They have a smaller travel size package of the line if you want to just try it instead of buying the full size right off the bat. That's what I did.

        I have been using this for several years now and if used with Clinique's 3 step for acne it does wonders you can see the difference in your skin within 1 week of using it, well at least I was able to. It really does help your acne. The only bad thing I would say is that after a while of ususing it your skin gets used to it and it doesn't make your acne worst or make it better. But it does help and it does keep your acne under control. If you are struggling with acne this product will help you so much!

            I normally use cetaphil when my skin is breaking out, but it wasn't working as well as normal, so I tried this. It has worked great and is not expensive.

              Does this have salicylic acid in it? I used to use this but that was before I got eczema and now salicylic acid dries me out.

                Hi! Yes, all of our acne solution products contain salicylic acid. If you are looking for a cleanser that does not contain salicylic acid, you may want to try Clinique's Take the Day Off Formulas if you are looking for a make up solvent instead. If you are looking for a facial soap, you may want to try Clinique's Mild Liquid Facial Soap. Thank you for your question!

            • Q:

              Hello! I am a 41 year old woman & have blackheads on my nose & chin area, they aren't noticeable until I am up close to a mirror, would this product be good for me? Or a pore cleanser? I have more of an oily skin. I have a hard time with what is for a woman my age & what is for teenagers. I unfortunately can't spend a lot of money on cleansers, etc. Right now I use Oil of Olay cleanser & moisturizer & I use Netrogena face wipes to take off my makeup. Any other recommendations you would have? Thank you for your help.

                A:

                Hi! Thanks for your question! If you are battling blackheads, exfoliation is the best thing you can do for your skin. You have many options for exfoliation. You may want to check out Clinique's 7 day scrub cream, or Clinique's Charcoal Mask, and a Clarifying Lotion from Clinique, as they will help to remove dead skin that can trap oil in the pores and cause clogging of the pores. It is also best that you are using an oil free moisturizer.
                Please know that Clinique products are truly for everyone and we are always here to help answer any questions that you may have. Happy New Year!
