            Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 - For Dry Combination Skin:

            I received this 3-step regimen in SAMPLE sizes (cleanser, toner, moisturizer). Thinking that Clinique was a higher end product-- and wanting to make my face glow for an event I have coming up-- I tried the products together. However, just the next day I noticed an itching and burning sensation on my face. Not thinking much of it, I used these three products in the morning as well. Later that day, my face was inflamed all over. I did not change anything else in my beauty routine nor my diet. I just returned from the emergency room and they said I have contact dermatitis caused by this product. I have combination skin (slightly oily in T-zone), and don't have particularly sensitive skin. The only other products that have made me breakout or given me a reaction are from Aveeno. Anyways, I now have my event tonight and my face looks like a tomato and may continue to do so for the next few weeks. Very disappointed in these products and this brand.

              I use it right after I wash my skin and I think it may be my fault as to why it's drying out my skin. I may have bought the wrong one, as I feel my skin may be changing. I love the clean, tingly feel and it was priced just right. It's just drying out a few small patches on my face, but I think if I get one of Clinique's other toners I will have better success!

                  I am fairly new to using toners, for fear of them drying out my skin. I was using Neutrogena's alcohol-free toner, and was happy with the results until I received a free promo bottle of the Clinique toner. Wow! After the first use my face felt cleaner and got any remaining makeup (even more so than the Neutrogena toner). After a few days of using twice daily, I noticed a decrease in blackheads and overall clearer skin. I have very sensitive skin, and was nervous about trying this, but it did not irritate or dry out my skin at all. Although I try to keep my skincare routine as simple as possible (i.e. as few products/steps as possible), this is now a definite MUST!

                        Hi. Thank you for your question. At Clinique we do not add fragrance to mask the smell of natural ingredients used in the product. We know that fragrance is a known irritant to skin and we don't want to take that chance at Clinique. There is a cosmetic alcohol used in this product that is perfectly safe for skin. It is denatured, and is used as a gently cleansing agent. When used twice a day, this product will exfoliate skin and improve overall clarity. Enjoy and have a great week!

                        Hi! I am so sorry to hear this! Thank you for reaching out. Typically a skin type #2 uses Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion Plus, as it is for a combination skin type. The gel that you are currently using is for a skin type that not experiencing any type of dryness in the skin at all, and it sounds like that isn't the case for your skin. If your skin feels tight and uncomfortable in the cheek area on a daily bases, and you have a need for an oil rich moisturizer, I suggest switching the moisturizer versus the clarifying lotion. Please let me know if this helps. Have a wonderful week!

                        Hi! Clarifying Lotion offers chemical exfoliation. If you have dry portions where you see flakiness on the surface, this is actually simply a need for exfoliation. This product will help greatly. It will also help your moisturizer to penetrate into the skin more quickly and easily. Thank you for using Clinique!
