      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System:

      I have had issues with acne for a while, and have gone as far as visiting a dermatologist on a regular basis. I was tired of not getting the results that I was hoping for and decided to try something different. I tried this set and love it! BUT there are a couple of side notes when using this product. When I first started I used all three steps twice a day. My skin became very dry and irritated. I visited my local Ulta and talked to the Clinique specialist about my issue (who was VERY helpful). She suggested that I only use the toner (third step) twice a week, and the Clinique Moisture Surge to help with the dryness. I have been doing this for three weeks now and it has shown amazing results! The moisturizer has also worked GREAT with my combo skin.

          I have not experience any break outs since I started using this system. All other products I have tried do not deliver the way that these products have. I purchased this alone with the sonic brush. It is worth the cost which is very reasonable for clear beautiful skin.

                I was really excited to try this out. As I've always struggled with acne, and could never really find the right product for me. One of the workers at the Ulta near me recommended this for my acne. The first week was alright, it made my skin a little dry here and there. I continued using it and my acne got so much worse. It actually all turned into mainly cystic acne which was very painful for me. So overall, this product just made my acne a lot worse and started making my skin flakey. Will definitely not buy again.

                    I purchased this set because I have a serious breakout problem that I can't get under control. My skin is very oily, and I have pimples on my chin and jawline. It's been this way for about two months. Nothing I have tried will work. However, this acne solutions set started working immediately. I used it the first time at night, and I noticed a big difference the next morning. I'm now on day 3, and my face is looking much better. I'm sure it will be under control in just a few more days. I will be purchasing the full size bottles of these products!

                          Hi! If you only have occasional acne, this system may not be what your skin needs. You mention occasional acne and blackheads. The occasional acne can probably be cleared with Clinique's basic 3 step skin care system, partnered with Clinique's Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel.
                          The blackheads are simply oil trapped beneath dead skin, so you may want to try using an exfoliating scrub a few times a week. You may enjoy Clinique's City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask and Scrub or Clinique's 7 Day Scrub Cream. Use one of these products about 3 times a week on makeup free skin. Follow with Clinique's 3 step skin care system for a skin type #3, as you will want something oil free. Do not use the scrub on your active breakout that you experience occasionally. It is suited perfectly for blackheads and whiteheads, but should not be used on pimples.
                          Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                          Hi! I understand your concern, but it can be normal to break out a bit more when you begin a new skin routine. This should not last longer than 3 or 4 weeks. You should begin to see clarity after the initial activity that you are experiencing.
                          If you skin is feeling dry, I suggest using an oil free moisturizer all over the skin and only using the all over clearing treatment moisturizer where your skin is experiencing a lot of breakout. If you are in need of an oil free moisturizer, you may want to try Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel or Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Formula. Thank you for reaching out. Please let me know how your skin is clearing and have a great week!

                          Hi! Great question. If your breakout is not constant, and it is only hormonal, I do not think you need a daily system to address acne. Assuming that your breakout is probably only about once a month, I suggest using a basic 3 step skin care system, partnered with Clinique's Acne Solution Clinical Clearing Gel when needed. Thanks and have a wonderful week!

                          A:

                          Hi. Great question! If they are blackheads and whiteheads, you are not a candidate for an acne system. There are a couple of other options for you that are more customized for your concern.
                          If your skin is getting a bit more oily, you may need to adjust your 3 step skin care system. Blackheads and whiteheads are caused from oil becoming trapped beneath dead skin. Treating the oil and giving your skin more exfoliation should help you to achieve your skin goals. If you are noticing more oil all over, you may need to change your entire 3 step system, including soap formula, clarifying lotion number and moisturizer formula. For example, if you are using a system for a skin type #2, you may want to now begin using a system for a skin type #3.
                          If you do not feel this is the case, you can simply add in treatment accessory items. For example, you may want to add Clinique's Exfoliating Scrub or the Charcoal Mask.
                          Please share a bit more about your skin if you would like help in choosing the right products. Thank you and have a great week!

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?

                          Good! You can absolutely use either of those moisturizers after the Clinique Acne System. Many people do and love the combination. Let me know what you think when you try it!

                        Is it ok to use the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel along with this product?
