    This product line up is amazing. I went into the store crying about how awful my skin looked. I was all broken out. The Clinique lady told me to use this twice a day. Give it time and my skin would begin to improve. She also recommended a gel moisturizer to go with it as it can be a little drying at first. My skin has improved sooo much! It hasn't even been a month yet and it's completley better! I noticed a difference in the first 3 days. No more oozing pimples or gross redness. Thank you Clinique!

                I think this probably works fine for controlling acne. Unfortunately I have very sensitive skin. I used it for two days and woke up on the third day with a bright red face. It was like it was burnt. So I had to quit using. If you have sensitive skin you might not want to use this.

                    I bought this product a week before leaving on a trip from the US to Japan. I was having hormonal breakouts due to pregnancy and wanted something that would give me a clearer face like I am used to. I went to my local Ulta and picked up the Mario Badescu $30 acne starter kit and when I got to the counter the Ulta rep told me that someone could help me find something better and cheaper. I should have known not to purchase the product because the Clinique rep who helped me had TERRIBLE skin and she claimed that she used this product. The rep who helped me pick up the Mario Badescu had beautiful skin and so that should have been my first sign. The Clinique product was cheaper (by $3) but did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for my skin and I have more breakouts now than I did before when I was using my Simple products. This is not an effective product for hormonal acne like they say! DO NOT BUY IT! As soon as I return to the US I am returning this product.

                    I bought this product a week and a half ago, and I was astonished by the results. I did not think it was possible for my skin to heal like this, let alone this fast. I broke out about two months ago worse than I have ever broken out before and I didn't know what to do. I tried natural remedies, drug store acne treatments, even prescription oral treatments, and absolutely nothing worked but this. I am so grateful for the Ulta employee who recommended this to me. My face went from having HUGE pimples all over to being about 80% healed in just one week of use of this system and the Clinical Clearing Gel from Clinique.

                    Unfortunately, my skin did dry out severely, but my moisturizer is really helping fix that. Other than that I really love this treatment system. It's worth every single penny.

                        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!

                      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?

                        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. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                      Is it ok to use this 3 step along with the 3 step for dry combination skin? For example, one in the morning and the other at night?

                        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!
