Medicated, oil-free foaming cleansing gel helps clear breakouts and blackheads. Unclogs pores. Helps control oil. Skin feels fresh, soft, calm and smooth. Can also be used on body.
As an allover treatment:
  • Apply a thin layer to entire face twice a day after cleansing. If skin feels a little dry, Clinique suggests using a lightweight, oil-free hydrator, like Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.
As a spot treatment:
  • Spot-apply where needed. Using other topical acne drugs at the same time or right after use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor. If you are currently using Clinique's Acne Solutions Clear Skin System, use Clinical Clearing Gel as a spot treatment only.

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Gel:

    My face is really oily and this does not help it at all. I also get acne clusters on my cheeks and even using the 3 step system, I have not seen a bit of results. I feel like my face is getting more greasy and I clean it twice a day.

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Gel:

    I use this cleansing gel with the Clinque sonic system with the deep cleansing brush head twice a day. It's made a big difference in the texture and clarity of my skin. I recently ran out of the cleansing gel and had to wait for delivery (my local store doesn't stock it), and in just those few days, my complexion got worse. I never want to run out again!

            Verified Buyer

            Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Gel:

            The consistency is hard to work with. It's so thin it slips right through your fingers before you apply it to your face. Haven't noticed a difference in my skin since I've been using it. I have very acne prone skin so I'd like something a little more helpful for my acne. Overall I am not too satisfied with the product.

            • Q:

              Would this replace step 1 in the Clinique Acne Solutions Steps, in other words, would I then follow this with Step 2 the toner, and Step 3? Thanks!

                Hi! Yes, this is step #1, so you would follow with the Clarifying Lotion. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

              Can you get me a list of this products ingredients? When you click on ingredients you get more instructions on how to use the product, which is great, but I need to know the ingredients. Thank you.

              Is this product any different from the cleansing foam? Which would you reccommend for use on a facial brush?

                A:

                Hi! The products are interchangeable, and offer the same result. If you are using a facial device with a brush, I suggest the Cleansing Gel. I believe you will prefer the texture of the gel partnered with a brush. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!
