    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

    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.

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

    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.

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

    I discovered this product as a teen and have been using it for many years. It works wonderfully, effectively, and with very little product. The only down side is that if you have dry skin, it will dry you out even more on the area you apply. If you don't, then you don't need to worry. I definitely recommend.

    It so easy to use but it does if you have normal skin not recommended but if you have oily skin like me it will dry it out a tiny bit but also do competitive swimming which also dries it out to an extent I really love it will clear any breakout in like 3-4 days. Best product ever!

      Wasn't aware of this product and how well it worked, until an employee introduced it to me. Have been having a lot of trouble with chin hair popping up with troublesome bacteria, i.e. zits. Purchased it and used it that same night. So glad I did, because it has really helped with the clearing of zits on my chin. Highly recommend this product.

        I love this gel it helped clear my breakouts and maintains them under control. I used a lot of things and this is one of my holy grails. I used this twice a day. Morning and night .. And u can also use it when u have a stubborn pimple. U can do a spot treatment. But u have to make sure u put a moisturizer after applying it cus it can make ur skin a little dry. Other then that works great

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

        I have been a Clinique customer for decades. Unfortunately, in the last couple years ago, my stand-by products have stopped working for me or they discontinued them. This is another example. Originally, this was called "spot healing gel" and came in a much smaller bottle. It was fabulous. Literally dried spots overnight--I would use a tiny bead and spread it all over my face (as I suspect many others started to do) and it totally cleared my skin and actually prevented future breakouts. After reformulating, it now contains Butylene Glycol which is comedogenic. Wherever I apply it, I break out later, completely defeating the point.

          I have pretty oily skin and prone to breakouts every now and then. No matter what primer or setting powder or facial toner/astringent I used my face would always be oily after a few hours. Now I use this after the liquid facial soap and before the dramatically different moisturizing gel and my face is still shine free after an 8+ hour work day (in fast food with lots of oil and grease everywhere)! Not to mention my skin looks absolutely perfect and if I have a pimple forming its gone the next morning.

            • Brand Expert

              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.

              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!

              A:

              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.
