      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System:

      I used to use this product and have since returned to it because other products weren't doing it for my skin. This product has cleared up my skin very well, and is gentle enough for me to use twice a day (in the summer). In the colder months I do only use it once a day because my skin is a lot calmer.

        I bought this for the great reviews after I started randomly breaking out. Unfortunately, I think this made my skin worse. Extremely irritated, red, dry, and not really effective either. I am going to stop using. My acne has not gotten better by any means.

                      As an adult I still experience acne flare ups. I have tried every acne system you can think of. I have very sensitive skin and this product cleared my acne within 3 days. It left my skin soft and glowing, and best of all, did not dry it out and irritate it! I use Clinique foundation, powder, and primers. I am a big fan of Clinique for sensitive skin

                          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!

                        I am looking for a skincare routine for my tween, who is starting to get a little acne. Would the acne solution be too strong? should I go with Treatment 3 - she is oily in T zone.

                          Hi! If she is not using anything to cleanse and exfoliate her skin currently, it is quite possible that she could start with a basic 3 step skin care system in a type #3.
                          The acne system if for someone experiencing persistent acne and suffering from breakouts that are 3 or more at a time constantly.

                        Will this work if you have very oily skin? I've read reviews that have said it dries out their skin but I haven't really read any that say anything about oil. So will this help with my oily skin? Thanks!

                          Hi! Thanks for your question! This system addresses acne specifically. If you have 3 or more breakouts at a time consistently, this would be a nice system for you. Acne occurs in the skin due to oil and bacteria getting trapped beneath dead skin. This system helps to control all of those factors, so it is suitable for oily skin types.
                          If you do not suffer from acne, but only suffer from oil, you should try the Clinique 3 step skin care system for oily skin. Have a wonderful week!
