    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

    I really love this product. I am so happy that an associate at Ulta recommended it to me. I went in to Ulta a day before I was going to leave on a weekend trip and I needed something that was going to help with some acne spots and it worked. The associate told me that it would work within 24 hours and it did. I have purchased this twice and will purchase it again. I also recommended it to my sister and she purchased it as well. I recommend the 1oz bottle because it is a better buy and the product will last longer. All you have to do is apply it on your acne spots or you can also apply a thin layer all over your face. Easy!

      This has a VERY strong alcohol smell. And the product felt like it sat on my face like a mask instead of soaking in. My acne has actually started to return since using this product. I will not repurchase.

            • Q:

              I am using the clarifying lotion for dry combination skin, would it be better to use this product alongside it or the all-over clearing treatment that contains benzoyl peroxide?

                Hi! Clinique's Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is actually a perfect partner to the basic Clinique 3 Step Skin Care System. Your 3 Step Skin Care System will cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize the skin, the Clinical Clearing Gel can be used after as a spot treatment to clear acne. I do not suggest the Clinique Acne Solutions All-Over Clearing Treatment unless you have 3 or more breakouts at all times. Have a great week!

              Hello, I want to buy this product but I am currently using the Clinique dark spot corrector & optimizer for dark acne scarring that I have. But because I do still get breakouts can I use this along with the corrector to treat both? If so which one should I apply first?

                Hi! If you are using it as a spot treatment or as an all over clearing treatment, you will not rinse from the skin. Leave on the skin to heal breakout all day, or all night. It can be used under makeup or at night while you sleep. This is an amazing product and I am eager to hear about your results. Have a great week!

                A:

                Hi! Thank you for your questions. If you have active breakout you should not use exfoliating scrub on any of those areas. It can cause breakout to spread, as it is a manual exfoliating product. Chemical exfoliation is the best way to exfoliate the skin when you are looking to clear breakout. You may want to try something like Clinique's Clarifying Lotion. After you cleanse and moisturize, Clinical Clearing Gel is a great product to use in areas where you need it. It is absolutely ok to use it on other parts of your body that you are experiencing breakout. Have a great week!

              I am used to using the Spot Healing Gel and it seems to be discontinued. Does this replace it? They both have salicylic acid. I see you have an Emergency Gel that has benzyl peroxide and there was a question/answer that said that product replaced the Spot Healing Gel but it has different ingredients. I just need a spot treatment occasionally and the old Spot Healing Gel worked well. Need a replacement. Thanks

                Hi! I apologize for the confusion. If you are looking for Spot Healing Gel, it has been repackaged and renamed due to our additional clinical tested that was conducted.
