    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

    I really wanted to like this because I just started developing acne! However, my face has been red, itchy and scaly after using this product only twice. I had a really bad allergic reaction to an ingredient in the face wash. I have sensitive skin and the lady told me that its fine, but I DO NOT recommend this for sensitive skin. I have never had this bad of a reaction to a product:(((( Its probably a great product for people with not so sensitive skin!

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

      I struggle with acne and had tried many other big brands of face wash. Some of them had actually made the problem worse. Then a blog I follow had recommended the Clinique Acne System. I tried it and fell in love. Not only was it gentler on my skin than the other brands, but it cleared up the problems they had caused!

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

      I am 24 years old and have only been struggling with acne in the recent years. I have extreme combination skin, like where I'm dry I am flaking and where I am oily I am super shiny, so it is difficult to find a product that doesn't irritate my dry skin. I have tried everything and nothing was working, every other brand made me peel and red. I started using this whole system in December and my skin has improved DRAMATICALLY. I have very minor breakouts occasionally but it does take time to see result and you have to be consistent but it is very worth it. The only down side for me is the medicated smell but I can deal with that in exchange for better skin. WORTH THE BUY!

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

      I've been using this for many years and it's wonderful. Definitely leaves my skin feeling clean, refreshed, and keeps the acne away. I use it for the power it has of controlling my oily and sensitive skin. It can dry your skin out, which is why I only use it once a day. So if you have bad breakout the twice a day would deff help! Don't forget to mositurize tho!

                  Hello. Our Research and Development teams have demonstrated that a product's effectiveness is not dependent upon any one particular factor (i.e., pH) or ingredient, but rather the combination of ingredients in a particular formula. For proprietary reasons, we do not disclose ingredient percentages or product pH; however, you can be sure that the Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam is scientifically balanced to enhance the look and feel of your skin.

                If it can be used together, I assume you'd recommend the acne brush head for the brush?

                  A:

                  Hi! This product helps with blemishes, as it controls oil, fights bacteria and removes dead skin. It will not fight true cystic Acne, as that should be treated by a dermatologist. Anytime you clear skin skin, it also fights against blackheads and whiteheads. Cystic Acne needs something beyond a topical treatment in order to clear completely. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  Hi! We do not have a specific use up rate that we can guarantee, as everyone will use it differently, but if you were to use it twice a day, everyday, it should last approximately 2-3 months. Again, everyone will use this a bit differently, so the use up rate will vary by person. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
