Acne Solutions Cleansing Gel

Item #: 2286506 Size: 4.2 oz

Ask a Question
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.
Use twice a day, morning and night. Apply to Acne Solutions Deep Cleansing Brush Head or lather between palms with warm water. Massage over makeup-free face, avoiding eye area. Rinse thoroughly; pat skin dry. Follow with Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion.
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:

    I use it daily. I have really sensitive, oily skin but it has kept the oil down to a minimum. It's still there but not as bad as with other cleansers. My skin is so soft after I use it too which I love. Helped clear up most of my problem acne too. It's really gentle but still effective which I've had a hard time finding.

      I have combination skin and break out in the t zone. This product dries my skin out, even if I use it 3 times a week only. Would not recommend for dry or combination skin

              I have been using this for some time and I just love it! It makes my face feel clean and it makes my acne clear. The only down fall was it made my skin a little dry but not too bad.

              Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Gel:

              I use this to wash my face. It works pretty well but it's called a gel, but has a water consistency that makes me use way more product than I feel I should be. I wish it was a gel like it says it is.

                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!
