Comments about Clinique 3-Step Introduction Kit For Drier Skin (Type 2):

It's ok. Does burn when using after being sunburnt. It did touch my eye and my eye lid was red. But works good I always have acne and this has helped it but I would like the actual milk.

      I have used this product for a week and I saw a difference in two days, but you do have to be consistent . It helped me so much with my dry skin I was even peeling of how bad my skin was and i saw a big difference I really do recommend it and actually plan on buy the actual product (regular size). They told me this kit is for a month and a half and a little goes a long way.

      I use this product twice a day and have noticed a severe improvement in my skin! I have late on set acne that really made my self aware of how red my skin was, but after a couple weeks of following this skin step routine, my acne is better controlled and my skin is thanking me for it!

        I first tried this product in April. It caused me to have breakouts on my face. However, I continued to use it with the hope that my skin would eventually clear up. It is now June and I have started to see a significant difference in my skin. The moisturizer lotion also helped with the excema on my face. I've just purchased another trial pack because I want to be certain I still like it. My skin isn't 100% clear, but I do see a difference.

          I love this Clinique kit! I have been searching for a while for skin care that was of great quality and wouldn't break the bank! After just one week of using it, my pores are smaller and my skin feels 5 years younger! The products leave my skin feeling clean, soft and nourished! Would definitely recommend for normal to dry skin!

                    I don't care for the soap. It smells very heavily like paint to me. Has too much of a chemical
                    smell for me to be comfortable putting it on my skin. Will switch to something else. Glad I bought the small size.

                      • Q:

                        I have been using this for a week now. My skin was clear with 1-2 pimples on my forehead, but I wanted to get nice skincare stuff. My skin is normal-dry and I wanted to help keep my skin clean and moisturized. The workers at ulta lead me to you stuff and picked this out for me. However, since using this product as directed my skin has gone crazy! I have red itchy bumps all over my face and even one next to my eye. They are mostly on my cheeks, but it is ridiculously bad. I used to use a cheap face wash, and it seemed to be so much better, it definitely did not cause problems like this. I'm extremely dissapointed in this product.

                      • Q:

                        I recently purchased this exact trio of products to use for the first time. I have dry combo skin with some redness and breakouts across my cheeks (with dry patches) and an oilier t-zone. I have used it twice now, and my skin has since gotten more pink (in areas that weren't previously) and around my hairline/jawline is itchy and irritated. Is this a normal reaction? What am I doing wrong?

                          Hi! If the dryness that you experience is all over and there are no areas of comfort, you are a Skin Type 1 (very dry). If your skin is tight and uncomfortable in the cheek area and either comfortable or a bit oily in the t-zone you are a Skin Type 2 (dry combination) and this set is for you. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                        So, I have very strange skin (it's oily one day and dry the other) and I always have dry patches on my cheeks, as well as acne throughout my t zone... I've been trying all kinds of products from cetaphil and ceraV to going natural with jojoba oil and an origins exfoliator but nothing is working.... I'm 14 so my skins pretty sensitive and I just really want it to be more smooth and clear.... I have been recommended the 3 step kit number 2 and i was wondering wether or not it would clear my acne without over drying my skin?
