        Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1 - For Very Dry to Dry Skin:

        I use as part of the set right after the facial soap and before the moisturizing gel. After applying some on a cotton ball, I rub on my face to remove any hidden dirt that facial soap didn't take off. I always assume my face is clean after the initial wash but THIS REALLY SHOWS YOU what dirt is left behind on your skin and helps remove it for fresh, healthy feeling skin.

        NOTE: If you apply makeup and it constantly looks like your skin is peeling (to the point you wonder if you would look better without any foundation at all) THIS IS THE PRODUCT FOR YOU. I've been using it for a couple weeks now and not longer have that dry, cracking foundation look.

            Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1 - For Very Dry to Dry Skin:

            I have used Clarifying lotion 2 for years & Loved it. But after 40 my skin began to dry out! So I thought it would be helpful to change to Clarifying lotion1 since it is for dryer type skins. To my surprise I LOVE it! It doesn't tingle like #2 did but it is still very refreshing. My skin is a lot less dry & no longer flakes! I'm glad Clinque offers a variety of choices that is based on individual needs.

              I first tried the #2 Clinique Toner and returned it as it did not work for me at all.
              Several months later I decided to try the #1 toner and found it did work well for me. Like the clean products of the Clinique line and am happy to find something that helps my sensitive skin issues.

                  This stuff is absolutely amazing if you are having skin problems. I'm currently a few prescriptions for acne that make my skin very dry, sensitive and flakey. After using this product, my skin is more even, my makeup stays and my medications don't hurt as much to apply.

                    • Q:

                      Why is there even alcohol in the Clarifying Lotion 1 if it designed for very dry skin; why not just have the 1.0? My personal question is understanding the difference in clarifying lotions. I want to use the acne one but am afraid it will be way too drying...I have very dry skin but still suffer from adult hormonal acne. Which clarifying lotion should I use and with what moisturizer combination that will help with both acne and dryness (not an easy combination to work with!)

                        A:

                        Hi! Thank you for your question. I understand your concern with Alcohol, but please know that the alcohol we use is a cosmetic, denatured alcohol that is safe for skin. It will not dry your skin out if you have the correct formula for your skin type. Alcohol is used as a cleansing agent, keeps the product in it's liquid form and also allows the product to evaporate from the skin quickly. If you would like something that is oil free, you can use the 1.0 clarifying lotion. If you are suffering from acne, you should use an oil free moisturizer like Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel or Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief formula. Is the dryness you are referring to a tight and uncomfortable feeling or is it flakiness that you see on the skin? Please let me know a little bit more about your skin and I can best determine the best solution for you. Thank you for your question and I look forward to working with you soon! Have a great day!
