                    I have oily skin. I've always used the Liquid Facial Soap (Oily Skin Formula) and love it. How different is this product and will it be better for my skin?

                    Thanks

                      A:

                      Hi! Both are fantastic products! The key difference is the addition of charcoal in this cleanser. Charcoal helps to draw impurities from the pores, so if you battle oil and clogging of the pores, you may enjoy the feel and the addition of charcoal in this product. Thank you for using Clinique!

                      Hi! Thank you for your interest in Clinique! 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.
