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

    This clarifying lotion, along with the whole Clinique three step system, has been a part of my daily skin care routine for about 5 years. This is perfect for daily use, removing any access oils from your skin before applying lotion. Doesn't dry out my skin, which is nice.

      I am in love with this stuff. All my life I struggled to find a toner that didn't over dry or irritate my skin. This stuff leaves you feeling clean, without any tightness or flaking skin.

      It feels nice and cooling when applied, which I like. The only thing I DON'T like about it....it smells like NyQuil and nail polish remover.

      I love this stuff! I usually do not spend too much money on skincare products but this stuff was recommended to me more than once, the reviews are pretty good, it is not too much money compared to a lot of other brands and the cheaper stuff was not doing much for me. I have only used this stuff a few times and I am already in love with it! I can see and feel a difference in my skin already and I love how it feels when I apply it. It feels really fresh and cooling. I have oily combo and acne prone skin and I feel like this is perfect for me! I highly recommend this stuff!

            Alcohol!!

            from Jax FL

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

            I tried this after falling in love with the 72 hour hydro moisture. Thought it would be another great addition to my skincare routine. With the first use I knew it wasn't for me. I have normal to dry skin and this was like putting straight rubbing alcohol on my face!!! The smell was unbearable and burned my skin!! Will not be using.

                A:

                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!

                A:

                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!

                A:

                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!
