        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!

          This stuff works!

          from Prior Lake, Minnesota

          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!

            Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

            I use this instead of the third step benzoyl peroxide in the Acne 3-step. My skin has never been this clear since I started the 3-step system last summer. I'm 20 years old and would recommend this product along with the cleansing foam and clarifying lotion if you can't find a product to clear up your acne. I'm never going back to my drugstore face washes ever again!!!

            I am 26 and still struggle with acne. This product is working well for me so far. I only use it at night on problem areas because it is potent. Surprisingly, I have not experienced any drying though.

            I love this product. I noticed results in 36 hours. I used it as a spot treatment and not an all over face treatment. I use it twice a day on clean skin. It's really tightening though so it dries out your skin. Definitely use a moisturizer after.

            I am 28 years old. I get bad cystic pimples twice a month, and this product really helps shrink them down. I apply the gel after washing my face and using witch hazel as toner. It works better than drug store acne creams. I tried Clean & Clear benzoyl peroxide, and it did not work as well as this Clinique gel. It is worth the money.

                A:

                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!

                Hi! Cystic acne is hormonally induced and topical agents are never guaranteed to clear or treat acne that is truly cystic. The Clinique Acne line will help to clear acne blemishes on the skin. Thank you for your question and interest in Clinique.

              Will this product help with cystic, hormone induced acne? I get painful, cystic acne around my chin during that time of month, my skin is otherwise fairly clear.

                Hi! Cystic acne is tough to treat topically. You may see some benefit from using this product, as it is truly amazing, but no topical agents are guaranteed to treat cystic acne. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!

                Clinique's Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is a wonderful product that helps to clear acne prone skin. If you are looking to simply reduce the visibility of acne scarring, I would suggest Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. It is guaranteed to reduce discoloration 1-2 shades lighter in just 4 weeks, including acne scarring. You will need to partner this product with a sunscreen daily. An SPF will help to prevent the scarring from becoming darker on the skin over time when partnered with this product.
