Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

First time applying this product I noticed a very intense smell of alcohol. It dissipates quickly, but it's quite strong. Product did dry out skin a bit on chin, so I apply at night then moisturize in the morning to combat the dryness. Product works great as a spot treatment, or all over.
I plan to purchase again.

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

      Great product! I have adult acne, NOTHING gets rid of it. Except this product. I have oily skin, it attracts dirt like no other. Most acne products only take the oil off my face momentarily and doesn't do much for my acne. I tried this and I kid you not any of the spots I put it on had gone away by at least 80%! Great product! My only issue is that it burns where I applied it for like 2-3 minutes after. No biggie I just assume that means it's doing it's job!

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

      Helps get rid of a breakout quicker than any other product I've used. I've been using it twice daily for about 3 weeks now and I've used less than half the bottle, so it lasts a while. Only thing I don't like about it is the film it leaves on your face, which is very obvious in most lighting.

                      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!

                      Hi! Clinique's Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is actually a perfect partner to the basic Clinique 3 step skin care system. The basic 3 step skin care system will cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize the skin. The Clinical Clearing Gel can be used after as a spot treatment product to clear acne.
                      I do not suggest the Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin 3 step system unless you have 3 or more breakouts at all times.
                      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!

                  • Q:

                    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. It is the same fabulous product. You will want to purchase the Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel. Thank you for your patience and have a great week!

                      Hi Thank you for your question. Our Research and Development teams have demonstrated that a product's effectiveness is not dependent upon any one particular factor (i.e., pH) or ingredient, but rather the combination of ingredients in a particular formula. For proprietary reasons, we do not disclose ingredient percentages or product pH; however, you can be sure that City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel is scientifically balanced to enhance the look and feel of your skin. Have a wonderful week!
