      Love these products! However they are super drying. It says to use day and night, and my skin got so dry I had to go buy a moisturizer for dry skin. Mind you my skin is soooo oily it usually looks like I'm sweating. So now I only use all three steps every other day or every three days. But I use step two every day and night with no issues! Cleared up my acne in two weeks and I'm a lot less oily (super plus), will deffinetly buy again!

          I really like how quickly it cleared up my skin, the only downside is maybe it's a little too strong for my skin because it made my face really itchy. I started using it every other day Instead and that seemed to help the irritation.

          Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System:

          I use this product twice a day, every day. It worked very well in evening out my skin tone, minimizing my pores, and reducing redness, but doesn't stop new blemishes from appearing. When I use these three products without an extra moisturizer, it makes my skin feel very tight and causes flakiness around blemishes. I've begun to use a small amount of coconut oil on my skin in between steps 2 and 3, and it works quite well in reducing these issues.

            I started using this about 3 weeks ago and I haven't seen much improvement on my skin. I started getting more acne as I got older and haven't been able to find something to control it. This product dries out my skin if I use it too often. I will continue to use it to see if my acne begins to improve

              I have combination to oily skin. I'm 35 years old and I struggle with blackheads, a few random whiteheads and painful "blind" pimples. I always have between 2 & 5 spots at a time. Would this system be a good fit or is there a better option?

                Hi! Thank you for your question. I understand your concern and am here to help. This system targets blemishes specifically. If you always have 3 or more blemishes at all times, this should be a great 3 step system for you. It will help to clear skin quickly. It cleanses, exfoliates and fights oil and bacteria in the skin. Clinique also offers an Acne Solution foundation. If you would like to try this, we offer free color matching in all Ulta stores that carry a full line of Clinique products. Have a great week!

            • Q:

              Ok thanks for your help!! I loved the feedback! I think I will try the acne 3 step system you mentioned! Once I start using this, could I possibly use a moisturizer after I wash my face with this? Or not really! If so could I use the moisture surge extended thirst relief or the dramatically lotion/gel?

                A:

                Hi! Acne solutions will help to control oil, but it's primary purpose is to fight bacteria. Bacteria is a main cause of acne, but in order to be a candidate for this system, you would need to have more persistent acne. If you are experiencing 3 or more areas of breakout at all times, this will be a great system for you. If not, I suggest Clinique's basic 3 step skin care system. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                Hi! This is designed to be used by someone that has constant breakout in 3 or more areas at all times. If that describes your skin, it should work beautifully without drying your skin. If that does not describe your skin, you may be a candidate for the basic Clinique 3 step skin care system instead. Please share more about your breakout and I am happy to help you determine which one is right for you. Thank you for your interest in Clinique and I look forward to working with you soon!

                Hi! I am happy to hear that you are enjoying your new Clinique system! I understand that Acne can be very frustrating, but you also do not want to over treat the skin. You should stick with one system to treat acne. If you are looking to add another product to boost your results, I suggest adding Clinique's Ance Solutions Clinical Clearing gel.

                Hi! If you are batteling acne, I suggest using all oil free products for oily skin. It sounds like you may be using the basic 3 step for a dry skin type. If that is the case, I would switch to the basic 3 step for oily skin type #3 before beginning any type of acne treatment systems. Thank you for your question and please let me know how I can help after you edit your 3 step system. Have a great week!
