Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 - For Dry Combination Skin:

I got this because I have very acne prone skin and when I use a normal scrub exfoliator it always causes me to break out, so this was recommended to me instead. I will say after using it my skin feels extremely smooth and it does not cause me to break out. HOWEVER this smells like straight up alcohol, which is probably because the second ingredient is alcohol. I personally don't love that about out. I don't want to be rubbing alcohol all over my face everyday, I know that's not good for your skin. I will also say that even though I am rubbing what seems like straight alcohol all over my face, it does not dry me out whatsoever. So I guess it just depends on your skin care preferences.

                I started using this toner during the dry winter months when my skin started suffering from it most. No matter what I used, my face would be tight and dry afterwards. I decided to try Clinque and this toner is amazing. I love the feel, it's a cooling feel and I feel it working instantly. I love the clean feel after I use it and it does not dry my skin out at all. I'm on my second bottle now.

                  Bought this item on a sample set and have purchased over and over. I noticed that when I stop using it my skin goes back to normal problem skin that I have dealt with my whole life. Even after washing my face then I use this and it always is able to pick up dirt left behind! My skin has NEVER been this clear. Thank you to the gods for this product.

                      Clinique's three-step system has been a life saver for my dry-combination and acne prone skin. This product removes any lingering make-up and lightly moisturizes and tones my skin after washing. I will never go without it.

                            Hi! I am so sorry to hear this! Thank you for reaching out. Typically a skin type #2 uses Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion Plus, as it is for a combination skin type. The gel that you are currently using is for a skin type that not experiencing any type of dryness in the skin at all, and it sounds like that isn't the case for your skin. If your skin feels tight and uncomfortable in the cheek area on a daily bases, and you have a need for an oil rich moisturizer, I suggest switching the moisturizer versus the clarifying lotion. Please let me know if this helps. Have a wonderful week!

                            Hi! Clarifying Lotion offers chemical exfoliation. If you have dry portions where you see flakiness on the surface, this is actually simply a need for exfoliation. This product will help greatly. It will also help your moisturizer to penetrate into the skin more quickly and easily. Thank you for using Clinique!
