Most Helpful Positive Review I have every acne medication
I received a sample of this from I forget where, you know those sugar sized packets. I normally dont like trying samples on my face because I end up breaking out. I have super sensitive skin, did laser for acne, it made my skin worse. I was using a mail order product which they would send out shipments too often and it was pricey, after I stopped using that product my face was terrible, I couldn't even believe it.
I started using mild soap and spot acne treatments, it got a little better, not by much. It was at that point I saw the sample I had laying around and thought it has the same ingredients as what the spot treatments I use so I'll give it a try.
AS SOON AS YOU APPLY IT YOU CAN FEEL IT WORKING, no lie! I applied it to my breakouts but when I felt it working I decided to use all over my entire face. I IMMEDIATELY followed up w/a moisturizer, you will feel your face tightening up, so moisturize, it doesn't stop this stuff from working. The next day I noticed the breakouts were drying up QUICK! The packet lasted a few days, after that I had to buy it, my face looks almost like an adult, instead of a teen.
Most Helpful Critical Review disappointed
I wanted to like this so much because I use Clinique soap, lotion and other beauty products but this did nothing for me. I had an allergic reaction to a different non-Clinique beauty product that caused me to breakout. I usually only have hormonal breakouts so I wouldn't use daily the product normally. The first time using it I applied at night spot treating.When I woke up, the redness went down and the acne, swelling seemed to be slightly less so I washed my face and spot applied again. After applying morning and night everything was still there days later. It all went down somewhat mostly in swelling but it was all still there. I am fair skinned so blemishes really stand out and this product did not help me with hiding them or make them go away any faster. I feel like I would've had the same results using nothing. The product didn't dry my skin around blemishes so that was nice. I also like how I could spot treat and the product dried fast creating a barrier between the blemish/acne and skin surface so I could apply makeup. However, be warned that barrier the gel creates over the acne is visible in camera, bright lighting under makeup. I kept trying this product with just clean face, with lotion, with makeup, without makeup, it didn't matter the results are the same: nothing. I think the product only worked the first couple of days for me cause I wanted it to lol. I used for 2 weeks and acne didn't improve any better than using nothing. I will stick with Neutrogena On-The-Spot treatment. I have had good results in the past with that. I am disappointed in Clinique. I don't know how this works or dried out others but it's useless for me.

Barby from Gulfport,MS
I apply the gel as soon as any acne appears. It is extremely fast-acting! It works at onset and during an outbreak. I have used this product for years, and I love it! No negative comments from me!
Deb from Michigan
Have used for a few years. Use as a spot application. Works better than other products I have tried.
If you have stubborn bumps, try this

Juana from Novi, MI
Best anti acne gel ever
i love this product so much!!!!
presley from Birmingham
helps with my pimples so much!! it helps lessen the size and intensity of pimples, as well as getting rid of them quicker than it would normally take. i'm on my fourth or fifth one now and they honestly last a good while (probably around 2-3 months, maybe even longer) 100% definitely worth the price in my opinion
YES YES YES!
Kaye from FL
I have recently developed adult acne as my normal teen skin slowly changed into very oily and acne-prone skin. I have tried nearly all the acne solutions available until I came across the Clinque acne clearing gel and looked no further. I use this as a spot treatment on my large, stubborn acne as well as the smaller bumps that occasionally pop up. It does have a strong alcohol smell which goes away very quickly, and does dry your skin. I use this spot treatment after cleansing and before my other serums and final moisturizer. I also use it halfway through my day if I'm feeling oily on my breakouts. Buy it!!!!
I will buy this product again.

I use this product daily
Been using this for years
Rach from Illinois
I have been using this product for about 10years now. I love using it in the morning to put over a pimple before I put on my makeup. It creates a light layer on the skin that prevents makeup from clogging the pimple more (in my experience). This product has definitely improved my acne (combo skin). I don't use it everyday only when there is a pimple that needs to be covered.
love this product
emily from u.s.
I love clinique! the whole acne solutions line has been a life saver for me!
I will be buying this again !
Candy from Florence, KY
My skin tends to break out a lot and when it does it's large cystic painful acne. I can't EVER find anything to get them to go away, they take around 2 weeks normally to fully go away. I have bought SO MANY products so when buying I just thought it was going to be another product! To my surprise it really got rid of my cyst!! I put it on before I went to bed and within two days it went away!
So far so good
Lacey from Pennsylvania
I use this on big problems areas and also as a spot treatment about 4 days a week (every other day) so it doesn't dry my skin out. So far I have seen great results. I will most definitely keep using this product.
Lolo from Texas
I love this gel! But every time I order it, the box always comes damaged and sticky...
Sani from New York
Even though you feel like you have plastic bag on your face, it truly cures your acne faster. I think it prevents your acne getting more dirt on but what I know 🤷🏻♀️ however 100% recommended!
Awesome product for acne
ShariG from NY
This is an awesome product for anyone suffering with acne
I love this product
krissy from foothill ranch, ca
I have sensitive and sensitized skin with lots of allergies. It does not irritate my skin and works well. It's gentle enough to use in the morning and evening and doesn't dry out my skin.
funteenager from Ohio
Great product if you want to zap acne! Just a dot will do ya!
Helped my teenage daughter clear her acne
Melissa from Glendora, CA

Malbo from Florence, SC
This is the only spot treatment that dries up my cystic acne.
Michelle from San Antonio
Works great as spot treatment
Works so good!
Millie from Newington, NH
This is perfect to use day or night. ( I personally use it during the day because it is clear)
SHR from Dallas, Texas
I continue to purchase this. It really works!
Tayylorr from Virginia
Healthcare worker here! I used to have nice, clear skin with minimal problems. Now that I'm in a N95 mask all day that doesn't allow my skin to breath, my skin is so oily with A LOT of acne. Within a week of using this 2x daily (after washing with Clinique liquid face soap) my skin is almost fully cleared!!! With little new acne coming up!! This works great and fast too!!
I will continue to buy this product.
Erin from Detroit
I use as a spot treatment for acne up to 2-3 times per day if needed. It really helps heal my pimples without destroying my skin like benzoyl peroxide does. Make sure to use a moisturizer because it can be drying if using more than once/day.
Worth every penny!
Mel from Roseville, ca
I buy this product for my teen daughter. She uses it as spot treatment so it's not drying on her face and within a couple days her face starts clearing! When it was first recommended to me I thought it was a bit pricy for a 1oz container but if you use it as a spot treatment it goes a long way and still has great results!
Mask Acne is REAL
Lizerlu from Charleston SC
I have to wear a mask everyday at work. I started developing acne around my jawline and chin. For someone who never had to deal with acne their entire adult life this was irritating because the acne just kept becoming worse. I ordered this clearing gel to add to the Clinique face regimen I already used. I use this twice a day and my acne is gone!!
