Most Helpful Positive Review Yes Please!
I started using this when I was about 12. Im now 31 and have bounced around from different toners since then and was never totally satisfied. Now that I'm using it again my skin feels amazing and my moisturizer works even better!
Most Helpful Critical Review DO NOT BUY!!!!!
The SECOND ingredient in this product is alcohol denat. Denatured alcohol is a drying type of alcohol that aggravates and weakens the skin. Since it is so high up on the ingredient list, it is very risky, especially for those with sensitive skin. Although this product may have short term benefits, in the long run, it is awful for your skin. Alcohol denat weakens the skin and makes it very dry. It smells awful, and stings, almost like you are putting rubbing alcohol on your face. It also has witch hazel, another harmful ingredient for the skin. Clinique should not be selling this product, and such a large company could easily make a better toner. It is expensive, judging the ingredients and the subpar packaging. It is not cruelty-free, and such a large brand should be doing better. This "toner" gives you horrible breakouts, DO NOT TRY THIS PRODUCT!!!

I've been using this product for 5 years. It makes my skin radiant and I feel like my skincare routine is incomplete if I ever have to go without it. I'll be using this until the end of time!

Started having a reaction after a week of using. Have stopped. Just using water. Had bought the 3 care system of this with liquid soap for oily combo and DDM gel. At first seemed good, then noticed red rash & itchy.

Lee at the Ulta clinique dept. Suggested I use clarifying lotion 2 for awhile and then eventually 3. I have sensitive acne prone skin that is not dry or oily. She also suggested liquid cleanser for oily comb. & dramatically different moisturizing gel. Using for almost a week . No irritation, no dryness. Noticed just two tiny acne breakouts but blackheads on nose have deminished.

I've been using this product for a year and I still love it!
Refreshing and helps with oily/combination skin
Ashley from Phoenix, AZ
I use AM and PM after cleansing, and before moisturizing. I can see it is helping balance my oily skin, clarify and help heal any blemishes.

Perfect product for my skin type!
Tori from Ringgold, GA
I use this product every morning and night after my cleanser. It works amazingly and gives my skin that extra boost of cleanliness, providing a great canvas for the rest of my skincare.
My go to for years

I recently ventured out & tried a different product just out of curiosity but ended up coming back to this one. This stuff always comes to my rescue & clears my skin up within a couple days. Leaves my skin feeling clean & soft!

I love this toner. I use it everyday instead of harsh cleaners. Leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh.
Already Seeing a Difference!

I got this about a week ago to see if it would help the breakouts I'm experiencing on my chin and I can already see the difference!
Love Clinique toners
Kat from Michigan
I normally use Clinique #3 in the summertime when skin is more oily and read a review from someone who said that she uses #2 and 3 interchangeably depending on season. So I decided to get #2 using 20% prestige brand discount at Ulta for the winter when skin is drier and less humidity.
So far I am loving the clarifying lotion!

This is the one thing I was missing from my cleansing routine. I can't believe how much dirt I get off even after cleansing my face first. It has not dried out my skin either. I have only been using it for a couple of weeks but so far I am very happy. My skin is smoother and feels cleaner.

Gets all that dead skin and dirt off your face. Leaves your face feeling soft, not dried out. Great before a serum or moisturizer and gentle enough to use AM and PM.
Dried my skin out, broke out
B from Wisconsin
I used this in combination with the mild foaming cleanser and the moisturizing lotion. My combo skin got so incredibly dry and sensitive, and i broke out even more because of it. I wish I would've read the ingredients before I decided to try this
This is my every day go to for a clean face'

Morning and evening after cleansing and before serum, moisturizer etc. Saturate a cotton pad and swipe all along face except eye area.
Not too sure
Jay from Tulsa
Is it normal to feel a peel
After using this product.. should I discontinue use. I am using the clarifying lotion for the dry skin
I will be purchasing this product again!

I was recommended this product by an Ulta Beauty Team member after I had expressed concerns regarding my dry/combination skin (worsening dryness in the winter). She recommended to use it twice daily to help keep my skin moisturized and looking more plump. It's great because its light, non-fragrant, and
makes my skin feel very clean afterward. The bottle it's packaged in is a little awkward to facilitate application.
hate to say it but I might be sold

So first of all this product is a toner lol. I've seen similar products from different brands I respect also called "lotions." Imho they have more in common with nail polish remover than lotion. This stuff is clear and smells like alcohol and if I don't moisturize within 3 minutes of applying this, I feel like my face is gonna fall off in my sleep
THAT SAID: I have combination, sensitive, very fair, redness-prone skin with some embarrassingly noticeable eczema in the winter. I'm super Irish, my family has horrible acne, and my face gets super shiny / clogged in the summer from sweat and SPF products. I've only been using this product over the summer but for people with skin concerns like mine, believe me this: I think this is a great part of an evening routine to combat the SPF , IF you follow it with moisturizer (I usually use serum between the two but that's personal preference). I've been trying to find the trial size on this site and haven't successfully, despite getting it in an ulta skincare sampler recently. That said, I think it's worth a try. Oh and idk what the directions say but I've been slapping it on my face with bare hands and that works for me

It's so good I will only buy this from now on
