    Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 - For Combination Oily Skin:

    I use Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 right out of the shower and I love it. It's amazing how much oil is left after I wash my face. This lotion removes anything left over. I feel it minimizes pores on my face also. I highly recommend using this prior to moisturizing your face!

        Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 - For Combination Oily Skin:

        This is to be used twice daily, after cleansing, but before moisturizing. I love it for my oily skin, but occasionally have to skip it at night because it is slightly drying when used as recommended. It does smooth and remove excess oil.

          I apply this with a cotton round after the cleanser and it evens out my skin and brightens all around. It removes dead skin cells so your skin feels fresh after you apply it. I would definitely recommend, I notice the difference on my face.

            Ok first I have to say that typically, I am a budget buyer, HOWEVER, Clinique is my exception. It is always worth the extra $$. In conjunction with the matching cleanser & moisturizing lotion, it actually reduces breakouts over time with consistent morning & night use.

                          Hi I am sorry for the confusion. It is a liquid exfoliating agent. Clinique offers both liquid and also manual exfoliating agents in a cream base. We also offer chemical exfoliating agents in a moisturizer or serum form. Please let me know if you are looking for something specific and I would be happy to guide you in the right direction. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                        Hi! I love this product and it clears up my skin quite nicely, however, if I use it more than once a day (like the suggested twice a day) it tends to dry out my skin and sometimes even make it flakey. Should I switch to a Type 1 or 2 lotion?

                          Hi! Each individuals skin is unique, and it sounds like it is working nicely when you use it once a day, so that is how I suggest you keep using it. Clarifying Lotion #3 is giving you more exfoliation, which is why you are seeing more clarity. It sounds like you are very wise about your skin and on the right track. Keep up the great work!

                          Thank you for your question! It does contain Salicylic Acid. I am noting the ingredients below. Our Research and Development teams have demonstrated that a product's effectiveness is not dependent upon any one particular factor or ingredient, but rather the combination of ingredients in a particular formula. For proprietary reasons, we do not disclose ingredient percentages; however, you can be sure that Clarifying Lotion is scientifically balanced to enhance the look and feel of your skin.

                          A:

                          Hi! This product exfoliates, and anytime that you exfoliate the skin, you are helping to clear acne. If there is a concern with mild breakout, Clinique's 3 step skin care system is a great place to start. If breakout is a chronic problem, you may want to try Clinique's Acne Solutions Clear Skin System.

                          As for acne scarring, I suggest Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector + Optimizer. It will fade existing discoloration due to acne scarring very nicely. It is the #1 selling dark spot treatment in the world.

                          Thank you for your questions and have a great week!
