        I've been addicted to this since 1996 or so. It works well. Different types of different skin types. Clears my skin in a few days and I use it twice a day, once when I wake up and when I get home from work. I have combination skin and I've never noticed any irritation or anything bad.

          There are so many great toners out there, don't spend your money on this one. It's drying and leaves my skin felling tight, eventually causing my skin to over produce oil because it's so dry.

                  The best thing to do is get a consultation with the correct product from a Clinique Rep. If your on 4, this perfect for oily skin.

                    I am far beyond my teenage years and have always had oily skin. Now it is mainly in the T-zone... so it is more combination skin. However, during the summer, it tends to be oily all over. This product keeps my skin clean and clear and oil free. It also helps with some larger pores that have developed over time. I love the way this makes my skin look and feel.

                          A:

                          Hi! Thank you for your question! We do have a men's formula, which is equivalent to the women's #4. If you are looking for oil control, I suggest clarifying lotion #4, as it targets oil control specifically. If you are battling acne, I suggest using the Acne Solution Clarifying Lotion and the Acne Clear Skin System. This clarifying lotion focuses primarily on fighting bacteria, while absorbing oil. I would not say that one is particularly stronger than the other, as they target unique needs, based on your skin goals.
                          Our Research and Development teams have demonstrated that a product's effectiveness is not dependent upon any one particular 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 the Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing 3 Step System, as well as the Basic Clinique 3 Step Skin Care System is scientifically balanced to enhance the look and feel of your skin.
                          Have a wonderful week and thank you for reaching out.

                          Hi! Clarifying Lotions 1-4 contain a cosmetic grade alcohol. This type of alcohol will not dry your skin. It is used as a cleansing agent, allows the product to evaporate from the skin quickly, and also keeps the formula in its liquid state. If you are a skin type #4 with more of an oily skin, this should be a great formula for you. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
