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.

Not impressed

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.

      I wouldn't buy this again only because it doesn't foam up.. I would definitely suggest the foam face wash rather the this gel one :)

            Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Gel:

            I've always had some sort of acne for the past 16 years. The only products that ever kept my skin semi-clear was the murad acne line which is crazy expensive. One day I bought Clinique's gel moisturizer and it totally changed my skin- made it brighter and smoother. After that I decided to give the foam acne cleanser a go, it kept my skin clear so I finally tried this gel cleanser! This cleanser made my skin even smoother. It really is an amazing product. I basically have no acne for the first time in my memory.

              This is a gentle, everyday cleanser that leaves behind a nice clean feeling and pairs well with the sonic brush to clear up acne over time.

                      Good product. Doesnt fight acne like it says it does but definitely cleans your skin. I use this as the wash with my 2 medicated treatments from my dermatologist.

                        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!

                        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.

                      • Q:

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

                          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!
