    It instantly feels like its shrinking pores and although it dries skin, it feels like it's drying it in a good way & decreasing the oil!

          I have been using this product for years. I'm 18 and have had acne since I was 11. This is one product that has never stopped working for me. I use it on every type of acne I get: blackheads, whiteheads, hormonal, and back. It reduces inflammation and redness. It is somewhat drying, but I have oily skin so it's not bad for me. I just put a little dab at night and it is a huge help.

                Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

                I'm in my late twenties and occasionally get a few pimples but this month I had severe acne on my chin, cheeks, and forehead. Within one day of using the clearing gel all over my face I noticed a huge difference, my skin was clearer overall and my pimples were less red. Now almost a week later they are almost all gone, my pores look so much smaller, and my blackheads on my nose are gone. A little goes a long way and this is totally worth the money!

                  Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

                  After reading severest reviews (more like hundreds), I bought this item. I had some pimples on my face that were fairly new. I put this product on at night and the next morning majority of the acne was dried up already! I am beyond impressed with this gel. It dries out your skin a little bit, so I just put in on my problem areas and used it as a spot treatment along with moisturizer. Overall, I definitely recommend this clearing gel!

                  • 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! Yes, but it will probably feel more lightweight on your skin if you apply an oil free moisturizer before applying the clearing gel.
                      This is an amazing product and I am excited for you to try it! Have a wonderful 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!

                      Hi! The all over clearing treatment moisturizer is a hydrator, so I would suggest using Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel instead. You could then use Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel as a spot treatment only. It is an amazing product! Thank you for your question and have a happy holiday!
