          I have been using this product for a week and I am in love with it. It's a great daily cleanser and safe to use 2x/day. I love that you don't have to use a ton of the product too.

              Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel:

              I used this to replace my other clinique face wash and I love it! I use it with my clarisonic twice a day. When it first came in I was so excited because my face was rebelling against me but within a week of using this as part of my 3 step skin care, my face cleared up. I love how smooth it makes my face and it is very effective at controlling breakouts. I have combination skin so later in the day my face tends to get pretty oily around my nose and forehead but I honestly haven't really had any problems with that since using this face wash. Also just to note, I bought it in combination with the City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask (which I also love!)

                I was having a really bad breakout due to stress and hormones. I was given a sample and it cleared my face up. It's all I use now. Great for sensitive skin.

                  • Q:

                    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.
