        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

        I'm one of those people who had to spend thousand of dollars at dermatologists for acne since I was 13 with barely any relief. Last October my cousins told me about the acne system and I thought "yeah right. This won't help". Well I was totally wrong. The system cleared my skin! I'm 24 and now FINALLY can say I have clear skin! I started with all three steps and now I only use the cleansing foam on my skin and still holding strong with a clear face!

                I have tried everything under the sun to try and clear/keep my skin clear. This is my holy grail, only thing that works without over drying and irritating my skin. Use this with their toner and moisturizer, my skin has never looked better. Anyone struggling with acne I highly suggest giving this a try.

                Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

                I love it, but I do prefer the sonic brush and foaming face soap better, although i use this every other day. I had tried pro active, clean and clear, and many other lines of facial cleaners. I am 24 and have never had CHRONIC acne until now. I used one "travel size" box of this three step system and was hooked! my face had already improved! Since then I have been using this Product along with other products from this line and have minimal to no acene now. Going on 3 months of using this product I can't say enough about it!

                    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.

                  Can you use the Clinique Acne Solutions Cleanser with the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush or will that cause irritation or other skin issues if used together?
                  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!

                    A:

                    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!
