Medicated, oil-free foaming cleansing gel helps clear breakouts and blackheads. Unclogs pores. Helps control oil. Skin feels fresh, soft, calm and smooth. Can also be used on body.
As an allover treatment:
  • Apply a thin layer to entire face twice a day after cleansing. If skin feels a little dry, Clinique suggests using a lightweight, oil-free hydrator, like Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.
As a spot treatment:
  • Spot-apply where needed. Using other topical acne drugs at the same time or right after use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor. If you are currently using Clinique's Acne Solutions Clear Skin System, use Clinical Clearing Gel as a spot treatment only.

    I use this product day and night and it has really helped me with my acne. I used to get bad acne across my jaw line to the point where they looked like volcanos, after I started using Clinique my acne has gone away. Highly recommend!

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Gel:

        I was using the three step regimen and it was too harsh on my face making it dry out, after trying other regimens I returned to this one as it smells great and feels clean. I just only use it in the morning and use a different toner finishing up with Clinique sunscreen. Clears up my blemishes in three days!

              I really do like this product. I've recently just started using it and my skin has been clear but its very drying, even sometimes will dry out my hands when i put it on with my fingers. definitely need to use a moisturizer after.

              • Q:

                Would this replace step 1 in the Clinique Acne Solutions Steps, in other words, would I then follow this with Step 2 the toner, and Step 3? Thanks!

                Can you get me a list of this products ingredients? When you click on ingredients you get more instructions on how to use the product, which is great, but I need to know the ingredients. Thank you.

                Is this product any different from the cleansing foam? Which would you reccommend for use on a facial brush?

                  A:

                  Hi! The products are interchangeable, and offer the same result. If you are using a facial device with a brush, I suggest the Cleansing Gel. I believe you will prefer the texture of the gel partnered with a brush. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!
