      I've been using this 3 step combo for about a month now and my skin has cleared up and looks great. My skin is now clear, smooth and I have no problems with an extremely oily T zone, like before. The toner doesn't smell very good but it works so I can tolerate it. I love the gel moisturizer!

          from los angeles ca

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

          i have very oily skin this was recommended. The face wash made my face feel stiff then the toner birned my skin and the gel did not moisturize at all. Every step made the dryness worse. I understand this is to help the oil but not suck out the entire moisture from my face. And to top it off i had this strange acne rash when i woke up. Im so upset my face is so much more worse.

                  Great question. Yes adding other oil-free products will be perfect. We recommend adding Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel after your 3 step system. Apply it directly to the breakout to reduce inflammation and promote healing. Thanks for your question and have a great week!

              • Q:

                I am wondering which set would work best for me. I have fair skin and freckles. I do not have super oily skin and i rarely breakout. I get dry patches on my cheeks and around my eyebrows and the inner parts around my eyes. Every lotion or moisturizer Ive used has made my skin feel more oily and within a couple hours the patches of dry skin have dried back out and looks even worse once I put makeup on. I wash my face daily but i am deperate to get rid of these dry patches without something making my skin breakout or feel greasy afterward. I am afraid to try the Type 3 kit for oilier skin since some people said it burned and tore the layer off. The gel was said to have been better for patchy dryness and not tightness dryness. Lotions ane creams have usually felt heavy, greasy and caused some breakouts. Not sure if there is an exact kit or if i needed to make my own. Help! Please and thank you.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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!

                  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!

                  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!
