Most Helpful Positive Review Great Exfoliation
I LOVE the fact that Clinique finally brought back the Exfolation ingredient " Salicylic Acid" in the #2. Clairfying - Taking the product back to what it is meant to do "Exfolation" - So many people forget or don't use the Clairfying thinking it is just a Toner - Get Ready to Turn Back the Clock - After I use the soap - then the Clairfying #2, follow with the Dramatically Different lotion - AM & PM & (2x a week the regular scrub) My skin is translucent as it just was given a drink of water - Everyday People always ask "what I use" I say "Clinique of course" Stay Young - Laugh alot & you too will Always use Clinque - It Works!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review The Clarifying lotions need a complete rehaul....
I used this for a long time before I realized that using alcohol and witch hazel on the skin is not exactly the best way to go about cleaning or prepping skin. Even though people behind the Clinique counter will always say that this is "cosmetic grade" alcohol, it is still alcohol (and not the fatty alcohols which are moisturizing). For the time I used them, I felt the only way to clear my skin was to be agressive....that really didn't help my problems at all and the proof is in using other products from Clinique like their oil cleanser, which is making my skin thrive. I really think the alcohol and witch hazel needs to go and for the Step 2s to be more of an exfoliating essence type of "lotion". That way it can still exfoliate with the BHA but provide moisture and really prep skin for serums or the moisturizer. I LOVE Clinique's Even Better Essence and I really believe that a formulation more similar to those would take Clinique's 3 step to the next level. Out with alcohol, in with more of a hydrating but exfoliating essence "lotion" please :)

Makes my face feel clean and refresh
Henri from Tucson, AZ
I use the Clarifying Lotion twice a day after washing my face. After using it, my face feels clean and refresh. It takes off traces of make-up and I have less break-outs too.
Maria from Minneapolis, MN
I love that this product removes any leftover makeup that may still be on my skin after cleansing. It's not drying after daily use and moisturizer sits nicely after applying.

Exfoliates, dries up and diminishes fine bumps or acne very quickly. The best I've used so far.

Minimizes imperfections and brightens skin
Jessd10 from Saint Louis, MO
I wear a helmet for several hours a week, and was battling rashes and imperfections on my forehead no matter what I tried with hygiene. I started using the mild facial soap followed by the exfoliator, and it quickly improved my skin!
Buyer beware- alcohol denat
Audrey from Asheville
The second ingredient is alcohol denat which is super drying especially over time! I would head for a different 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!

A must everyday!

My day is incomplete without this. Morning and night I use before I apply my moisturizer. It exfoliates and refreshes to give my skin a youthful clear appearance
Johnny from LA
This is a Clinique classic and has stood the test of time, but this is not for me. I try to stay away from these, despite how much people rave over these lotions. It might be because of my dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin, but I am scared to try 1.0. This irritated my skin so much.
it made my skin dry
cristine from valencia ca
i stopped using this because it made my skin dry. i'm so disappointed.
Linda from Florida
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.
Linda from Florida
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!
