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

I'm usually a faithful Dermalogica customer, but I wanted to try a new toner that did more for my skins and I am IMPRESSED with Clinique. This toner leaves my skin radiant and "lifted", almost tight. I do feel it is a little drying for those of us with very dry skin but I don't let it dry and just smooth on my moisturizer right on top of it. I do notice a mild "alcohol" smell just enough to notice but not overwhelming. Overall I am a fan!

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

    I love this stuff. I have never had dry skin before until I started a new medication and I did not know what products to use. My foundation was always separating off my cheeks and forehead by the end of the day and I hated it, I could not find a product to fix it. I went to ulta and they recommended this twice daily exfoliator(which I don't do because my skin is sensitive) but it is a liquid. It makes my skin incredibly soft and doesn't irritate me at all.

        This is by far my favorite toner. My sensitive skin does not react to it. Normally toners make your skin dry and flakey. This one doesn't.

                  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.

                      I have skin that is prone to acne. I also use tretinoin cream so I cant use anything that has alcohol or is too drying on my skin. Would this be suitable for my acne prone skin?

                    • 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!
