Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1 - For Very Dry to Dry Skin:

I'm not 100% sure as to why this claims to be an "exfoliator" or a "lotion" as this is a liquid toner and doesn't have a gritty exfoliator feel like you may think. But it works very nicely and doesn't dry my skin out at all. I put this on a cotton round and apply after my cleanser and before my moisturizer. It does have a slightly strong "alcohol" smell but it's not too over powering in my opinion. I think it's perfect for dry skin. I do wish there was something on the top of the bottle with a little hole to kinda of squirt the product out - Like the packaging on most micellar waters - but it's just an open bottle head. Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting a lot more product.

    Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1 - For Very Dry to Dry Skin:

    I love love love this product. It seriously makes me feel awake and alive in the morning, and relaxes me at night. You're supposed to use it after washing your face with cleanser and before putting on moisturizer... But it's my guilty pleasure to use this product at ANY time of the day for a quick pick-me-up. It also helps with my pores and it makes my skin SO soft.

      I have tried all sorts of products, finally while attending a Smashbox promotion event one of the ladies suggested this toner to help with my severely dry skin. In just a few weeks my makeup lays better, I use less and my skin is no longer flaky and dry.

          Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1 - For Very Dry to Dry Skin:

          I'm usually a faithful Dermalogica customer, but I wanted to try a new toner that did more for my skins and I am IMPRESSED with Clinique. This toner leaves my skin radiant and "lifted", almost tight. I do feel it is a little drying for those of us with very dry skin but I don't let it dry and just smooth on my moisturizer right on top of it. I do notice a mild "alcohol" smell just enough to notice but not overwhelming. Overall I am a fan!

            I love this stuff. I have never had dry skin before until I started a new medication and I did not know what products to use. My foundation was always separating off my cheeks and forehead by the end of the day and I hated it, I could not find a product to fix it. I went to ulta and they recommended this twice daily exfoliator(which I don't do because my skin is sensitive) but it is a liquid. It makes my skin incredibly soft and doesn't irritate me at all.

                This is by far my favorite toner. My sensitive skin does not react to it. Normally toners make your skin dry and flakey. This one doesn't.

                    I have skin that is prone to acne. I also use tretinoin cream so I cant use anything that has alcohol or is too drying on my skin. Would this be suitable for my acne prone skin?

                  • Q:

                    Why is there even alcohol in the Clarifying Lotion 1 if it designed for very dry skin; why not just have the 1.0? My personal question is understanding the difference in clarifying lotions. I want to use the acne one but am afraid it will be way too drying...I have very dry skin but still suffer from adult hormonal acne. Which clarifying lotion should I use and with what moisturizer combination that will help with both acne and dryness (not an easy combination to work with!)

                      A:

                      Hi! Thank you for your question. I understand your concern with Alcohol, but please know that the alcohol we use is a cosmetic, denatured alcohol that is safe for skin. It will not dry your skin out if you have the correct formula for your skin type. Alcohol is used as a cleansing agent, keeps the product in it's liquid form and also allows the product to evaporate from the skin quickly. If you would like something that is oil free, you can use the 1.0 clarifying lotion. If you are suffering from acne, you should use an oil free moisturizer like Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel or Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief formula. Is the dryness you are referring to a tight and uncomfortable feeling or is it flakiness that you see on the skin? Please let me know a little bit more about your skin and I can best determine the best solution for you. Thank you for your question and I look forward to working with you soon! Have a great day!
