I use it twice a day and its honestly changed my skin for the better! I used to have such oily skin, massive pores, and redness and since I started using this routine I've seen massive improvement in all three.

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

I have an oily t zone but also dry skin. We thought the oil was worse than it was. This product literally stripped my skin off my face in areas. It wasn't allowing the oil to come back enough before I stripped it off again. Hurt and burned. However, I went down to level 2 for dry skin. Much better. No pain and my face feels better. Just get the correct one for your skin type.

    So bad

    By singh10

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

    If I could give this product a zero star rating I would, the Clinique lady in the store recommended this and gave it high praise and when I used it for the second time I broke out horribly and my skin is scarred. They would not give me a refund so that just made it worse.

          This product is absolutely AMAZING! I never has problems with my face until I went off to college. My face started breaking out often and I tried every product from drug store to prescription gels to proactive. Being that I have combination and sensitive skin, NOTHING worked, until now. This 3-Step process not only has cleared my skin in less than a week, but I haven't gotten any new break outs, and dark spots are fading. It leaves my skin soft and glowing. I use this product twice a day and the results do not disappoint. I cannot wait to try other products Clinique has to offer!

            I had been having trouble with my skin being so dry this season and the salesperson at Ulta recommended I try the clinque three step for Oily Combination (where I had always previously bought Combination) and I have been using all three products, twice a day for 2 weeks now and have found such a difference! No more flaking in the skin (thanks to the Clarifying Lotion) and super moist and plump skin. I've added the Moisture Surge on top of this 3 step and the vitamin C serum in the mornings and couldn't be happier with the results. Even my blackheads appear smaller!

                  Hi! If the dryness you are experiencing is tight and uncomfortable then you are a skin type #2. If you don't experience any tightness at all in your skin and the dryness you are speaking of is only flakiness that you can see, you are a skin type #3 and this is the set for you. Keep in mind, flakiness that you see on the surface of the skin is not dry skin but a buildup of dead skin cells that need to be exfoliated. Thank you for your question and have a great week.

                  Hi! It's not uncommon for skin to seem to get worse before it gets better. Any clogging that existed before starting the system needs to be brought to the skin's surface before it can clear away. If your breakouts are mild and you experience oil in the t-zone this is a great solution. You may also want to add Clinique Clinical Clearing Gel as a spot treatment to clear acne. If you break out constantly with 3 or more areas of concern at all times, you are a candidate for Clinique's Acne Solutions 3 Step System instead. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                I have the ultimate combination skin. My entire face is so dry that dry patches immediately pop through my makeup. However, my entire face is also extremely oily. I know i cannot find the perfect makeup products for me until I get my skin evened out. Will this be the best set for my skin?

                  Hello. Try Clinique Exfoliating Scrub to help polish the skin so that skin care and makeup wear more evenly. Choose Clinique 3 Step skin Care (Type 3) if your skin is oily in your t-zone and comfortable in your cheeks. You'll notice a difference in skin tone and texture within just 2 weeks! We can't wait to hear what you think.

                Hi! I am using the starter kit for the 3 step type 3 and I am also using the even better moisturizer. My question is if it was okay to use those two products together? I have somewhat oily skin around my nose and chin but my cheeks and forehead are more dry. Also in the winter time my face gets dry as well. Thank you!

                  Hi! You are absolutely correct in what you are using. The 3 step system works very nicely with the Even Better Family of products. They are very nice partners. There is a cream formula for drier skin and a lightweight lotion for oilier skin. You may find yourself switching between the two with the different season, and that is perfectly fine as well. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  Hi! I am sorry to hear this. Everyone's skin is unique, but at times when you begin a new skin routine, you may experience a bit of activity in the beginning. It should not last more than 30 days. It looks like you are using the type 3 system, which is all oil free. If you are experiencing breakout it is probably tied to clearing the pores to keep them clean. I look for your skin to clear quickly. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  Hi! It is very normal to change your system from one season to the next season. If you are experiencing oilier skin at this time, you should start with the system for a skin type #3. In the winter, we should skin type you to see if you should bump down to a different soap and moisturizer based on your skins changing needs. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
