    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions All-Over Clearing Treatment:

    I asked a worker for suggestions on a moisturizer that also helps with acne. She recommended me this as an everyday moisturizer and said it's good for sensitive skin as well. It has gotten rid of lots of my stubborn acne, hence the two stars, but it compleeetely dried out my skin and it's irritated all over. I thought my skin would get used to the product over time but nope. My skin texture is so weird now even when I apply a regular moisturizer on top. Though I want clearer skin I definitely do not want dry flaky skin l. After reviewing it more online, I have no idea why she suggested to use it as an everyday moisturizer. My skin wack now.

        I suffer from melasma and mild to moderate adult acne. My skin is also very sensitive and most acne products make my skin look and feel worse. I use this product after I wash my face with a gentle, fragrance free cleanser and my skin has cleared up completely in two weeks. I am soooo thankful for this product!!!!

        I've been using this stuff for awhile now, and it works great. Only down fall of this acne set is that it sometimes irritates my skin and it's very drying, so just make sure you have a good moisturizer.

          I started out using this produce every other day and have worked up to once daily. Initially it severely dried out my skin. Now it keeps everything balanced. This is NOT a moisturizer. I use the Moisture Surge 72-Hour moisturizer. I'm learning to listen to my skin.

                This is drying my face but when I discontinue use, I break out more. Can this be applied over or under my regular moisturizer? What moisturizer and what would be the preferred method? Thank you.

                  Hello! Anytime you are treating breakout, temporary peeling or dryness can occur while skin is working fast to uncover newer, healthier skin fast. Try Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel for oil-free hydration to smoothe flakiness while also using the Clinique Acne Solutions All-Over Clearing Treatment. For best results, alternate the products. Thanks for your question and have a great week!

                  Hi! Yes, you can use these products together. The Acne Solutions All Over Clearing Treatment Moisturizer replaces your basic moisturizer, so you would apply it first after cleansing and exfoliating. Thank you and have a great week!

                  A:

                  Hi! Based on the system you are currently using, it sounds like you may enjoy a spot treatment item from the acne solutions line versus an all over moisturizer. If I am correct in my assumption, I suggest Clinique's Acne Solution Clinical Clearing Gel. You can use this product as needed as a spot treatment to clear breakout as it occurs on the skin. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                Asked on 12/12/2016 by Gaby from Laredo TX

                • Brand Expert

                  A:

                  This product was designed specifically to treat acne. If acne is causing the redness, it will help to clear the skin, which could in turn help with the redness indirectly. If redness is a separate concern, not associated with acne, I suggest using Clinique's Superprimer Colour Correcting Primer to minimize redness. If you need more at that point, we also carry an entire Redness Solutions line at Clinique.
                  In order to treat the acne and pores, I suggest starting a basic 3 step skin care system from Clinique. It will offer cleansing, exfoliation and oil free moisture for your skin. Using a system like this will help to minimize the look of pores and acne. Again, I feel that this is a nice start, but we have additional options if necessary. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!
