    I got this for my daughter who is 19 and has been experiencing sever breakouts. She has been using this as spot treatment, along with the Clinique 3 step system for three weeks now and already her skin looks and feels so much better. She has more confidence in controlling the breakouts.

            Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

            I suffer from seborrehic dermatitis, which is sometimes very hard to control. Quick note, it makes the skin super oily yet dry. With the oil comes excessive itching and redness and that lovely thing called acne. This has been my saving grace when it comes to controlling the acne I experience.

                I want to try this product and make sure I use it correctly. So my question is, should I use and exfoliating scrub and then put this on my face? Or should I just use a normal cleanser first? And is it okay to use on arms and upper chest area?

                  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!
