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

I use this product as directed, twice daily and always after I'm out of the shower. Between that and my facial wash, different brand, I have not had a breakout since April. It's now mid July. Also, the smaller bottle lasted me about 3.5 months so we'll worth the cost! It has helped my skin not be so dry and not turn it oily too!

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

    I've only started using clarifying lotion in the last year as I have psoriasis and was told all forms of exfoliation were bad for it. However, I got a bottle for free so I tried it, both on my face and and on a patch of psoriasis on my chin. It actually helped to clear it up! I also love that it offers a little toning. I won't go without anymore!

              I don't know if my skin is sensitive to an ingredient in here our what, but I have tried to use this a few times now and a couple hours after applying, I just breakout! Both little ones and deep underground ones. I want to like this product so badly because it does exfoliate and I swear by a lot of other clinique products, but I have the largest pimple of my life rn from this and I'm so thoroughly annoyed!!

                  I have tried several of Clinique's clarifying lotion and have been using this version (1) for many years now. It is effective at exfoliating my skin but is very gentle. It doesn't sting my skin at all and I am very happy with this product. I will keep using this one.

                      Ulta employee recommended for my extremely dry winter skin. I do not understand how this is recommended for dry skin when Alcohol denat is the Second ingredient which is the most stripping ingredient you could possibly put in a product. My mistake for researching the ingredients after purchasing. Definetley Do Not recommend this for even slightly dry skin.

                        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!
