It's too gentle. I have to use a lot to get my makeup off & it smells bad.
It's nothing like Take The Day Off.

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I had been struggling with acne since my mid-20's (for almost five years) before I bought this product. I'd tried several different types of products (natural-leaning, not-so-natural, three different topical prescriptions, and diet changes). Without a doubt, Clinique's Acne Solutions system has worked better than anything else. My skin is not 100% clear, but it is so much better and I feel like I finally have breakouts under control. I've been doing the three steps involved in this system twice a day for about five months. It does dry your skin out, but that's to be expected with any acne treatment. When my skin gets too dry, I'll wash once or twice with Clinique's dry skin set and be good to go. I would recommend this system to anyone with acne problems.

          Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

          I use this product twice daily, followed by the "Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion Step 2" and my skin has never been so healthy and clear! This is the healthiest my skin has ever looked! I have very sensitive skin, and the products I had used to wash my face in the past made my face break out even worse, but then I purchased the Clinique face wash, and I started seeing results within 3-5 days after using the product. It really works! This is a must have! Especially if you have acne prone skin and sensitive skin! I will buy this product again and again!

            I have been using for about half a year and I love it. It ever since I started to use this, my skin is so much clearer. I use to have blistering pimples on my cheeks and forehead that would leave and come back within a week. Although my face in now scarred from my acne, I haven't had an reoccurring of any blistering pimples and I owe it to this face wash. I truly love it!

                  Hi! It will remove lightweight makeup, but if you are wearing tenacious makeup, you will want to partner it with another formula, such as Clinique's Take the Day Off Cleanser options. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  A:

                  Hi! This product helps with blemishes, as it controls oil, fights bacteria and removes dead skin. It will not fight true cystic Acne, as that should be treated by a dermatologist. Anytime you clear skin skin, it also fights against blackheads and whiteheads. Cystic Acne needs something beyond a topical treatment in order to clear completely. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  Hi! We do not have a specific use up rate that we can guarantee, as everyone will use it differently, but if you were to use it twice a day, everyday, it should last approximately 2-3 months. Again, everyone will use this a bit differently, so the use up rate will vary by person. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  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!

                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!
