I am obsessed with this toner! Coming from being on accutane for the past eight months, my skin was disgustingly dry and irritable. I also suffer from getting a lot of red bumps and ingrown hairs from shaving my face. (I am a beautiful man BTW) this really helps to smooth out my skin and even calms down my redness. My skin is now fairly normal and on the dry side since coming from accutane but this does not irritate my skin in the slightest and i have super sensitive skin. It makes my skin brighter, pore tighter and give a deeper clean. I'be been using it everyday for the past three weeks and i am in love. There are no more bumps or redness and my pores are smaller! Try it girl it is worth it and it lasts for so long!
Most Helpful Critical Review Contact dermatitis
bought the Clinique three step in addition to the exfoliating scrub after I used samples for two weeks. I had high hopes for this product my face felt fabulous I liked the products very much, but on day 15 I came down with contact dermatitis and had to return the whole purchase. I have dry and very very sensitive skin I've never used skin care products on my face ever and I'm 57 years old. In my entire life I've had less than five pimples. In the past I've tried every now and then to adopt a skin care regime but it always ends like this. Because of Clinique' reputation for testing their products I thought this line of skincare would work for me. Despite my problem I would very much recommend this product for a friend because, I think most people can use these products safely

I can't say I love it or hate it just yet since I just bought it but so far I am liking it. It's very smooth feeling, dosent burn, isn't strong in smell and it is purging my skin which is no surprise but the breakout isn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be. So far I like it
helps pull out dirt
Day from rolling meadows
even when i was my face i feel like i still might have dirt on my skin. I use this after to pull out the rest of the dirt and it works.
i use this along side my acne cream and they combo very well!
Diana from Chicago, IL
My skin is actually combination/dry but the toner for that skin type over dried my face so I tried this one instead. It's a great toner my skin looks brighter and I haven't had any breakouts or reactions to it. I love it.
Wonderful mild toner
JD from Ocean Twp NJ
I've been using this product every night for about a week. I have sensitive skin. Since I started using this my skin is starting to calm down. The redness on my cheeks and forehead isn't as dark
I have used this product for years....

This really works to take all the soap off my face, makes my face feel clean....
Good but not the best
Moni0405 from Texas
I love Clinique skincare as it tends to agree with my face a lot so I wanted to try this to help with flaking and dryness especially around my chin and jaws. After 1 week of using I found it did brighten my face and helped a lot with the dryness! However, alcohol denatured is the 2nd ingredient which I think is responsible for the tight feeling of my skin after using this product but before putting on moisturizer. I still have yeg to try the Thazel's toner and see how it compares to Clinique. Overall, good product and effective
Rosa from PA
This product is very good for dry skin. I use it twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. This product has really helped, and makes my skin feel great.
Read the Ingredients!! Disappointed
Emily H from Cincinnati, OH
I really wanted to love this. I am 19 years old and have dry skin so I thought I'd give it a shot. I realized as soon as I got it that denatured alcohol is the second ingredient! Not only is denatured alcohol cheap, but is is also not good for your skin at this high of a concentration!! It was okay for a few days of use, but today my face is broken out, red, and very very itchy. I'm super disappointed :(
Ena from Stockton
Great for extra sensitive skin like mine. Love it.
Finally a Truly Gentle Toner
Kate from Dallas, TX
I love this toner so much. I had used Clinique years ago, but I stopped because it seemed really drying. It turns out, the consultant helping me had given me the clarifying lotion 2, which is for dry-combination skin. There is nothing combination about my skin. I'm just dry. So many products are too harsh. I ended up trying Clinique again- this product after the extra mild liquid facial soup. My skin is so happy now!
I love this product!
HayNic from Tennessee
This is great product for someone with dry skin. It's helped my skin tremendously. I use it once in the morning and again before bed. I've only been using it a couple weeks and I could tell a difference in my skin within a few days.
cass from Dallas
I typically don't leave reviews, but this stuff is the product I never knew I needed. I always have dry patches on my face. They wouldn't go away no matter how much moisturizer I used. In comes this product. It literally takes the dry patches off & leaves you with smooth skin! Will def buy again!
Will be again and again
Erica from Russellville, MO
I had been using Thayers Witch Hazel as a toner before switching to this. An Ulta consultant recommended this after telling her about my dry flakey skin and even with having slightly combination skin this has been great! I can tell when i skip a day or two without using this. I use it everything morning and night during my skincare routine. I wash with Cerve hydrating wash in the morning and clinique pepstart exfoliating scrub to wash at night. The only thing i would change is the bottle opening, I would prefer to have more control over how much product i pour out or a flip cap would be nice.
OMG this really works!
Victoria Bradford from Fishers, IN
I was hesitant when starting this product as nothing has been able to get rid of my flaking dry skin without drying it out more, but after using this product I no longer have dry, flaking skin! I use it as directed twice a day, morning and night, and follow up with a moisturizer (I use Cerave). My skin has never looked healthier, more refreshed, and brighter! I have very sensitive skin and everything I've tried in the past has broken me out or caused red irritation bumps, but this product did neither! I'm shocked at how well it works yet still so gentle! If you have dry and sensitive skin, I would highly recommend this product!
Angie from ORLANDO,Fl
I have some blackness in my face and I ask products I can use, without any hesitation she recommended this. Also told me to used it twice a day.. it does clean my face but I truly haven't seen and change.. but I just start using it 3 days ago so I understand
Beckster from Boston, MA
I've used Clinique products faithfully over the years. Especially this toner. My skin has changed over the years as well. I've always had combination skin and oily skin in the summer. But lately in the Winter my skin has been so dry. So I thought about switching toner numbers and over the year I've used all 4 expect 1. I decided to switch from a #3 toner to #1 toner. But since my skin has been so dry I gave it try. And its life changing lol. My skin feels so comfortable and not dry. We need to listen to what our skin is telling us.
I would buy this product again.
Charlie from Providence, RI
I use it twice a day. It cleans your skin so well!
I have been buying this for years

Like stated above, I use daily. It makes the skin feel great

On my face!
Chloe from Sunnyvale, CA
My face is really dry so I decided to get clarifying lotion 1 instead of the clarifying lotion 2 which I previously used. CL1 caused me to breakout and it was the only change I made to my skin care routine. Will be going back to CL2 as it wasn't drying out my skin that badly.
MissSouthernSocialite from Mississippi
I find it very drying! Top ingredient is alcohol not good for your skin
Great product for flakey, dry skin

I suffer from sever dryness post winter. This product has help to control my skin from drying and flaking. I used it inc combination with the their moisturizer.
Alliecat from Salt Lake City, UT
Starting using this after I wash my face with the Clinique gentle cleanser in very dry and my skin has never looked better!!! My skin is incredible dry in flaky and the Utah climate doesn't help. Must give this a try!!!
This stuff is MAGICAL
M. from Atlanta
My sister introduced me to this and I am OBSESSED. It made a huge difference to my skin immediately. My skin has always been oily, but now it also gets really dry and flaky in the winter - or it did before I started using this toner (I refuse to call it a lotion). It somehow exfoliates without drying or irritating my skin at all - which is noteworthy because almost all forms of exfoliation make my skin REALLY angry. This caused no irritation and no breakouts whatsoever.
Saved my skin
hilefaul91 from Jackson, TN
I bought this after struggling with breakouts and having a really bad reaction to a new face wash. This along with the face soap literally saved my skin. Been using it for only 4 days and my face is almost completely clear. I'm so thankful I decided to try it!
