Most Helpful Positive Review Customer for life!
I have used Clinique products for a dozen-ish years now, and have no plans to ever change that. They are consistent, and my skin is clear. In the past, I have tried other things from time to time, but have always come back to Clinique because nothing compares.
Most Helpful Critical Review Clarifying #3
I have been using Clinique for years and am disappointed in the new Clarifying lotion #3 formula which appears to be a watered down version of the old formula.I'm oily and It doesn't exfoliate as well and you don't feel the tingle. I even stepped up to the #4 and it's slightly better but doesn't do as good a job. The original formulas were much better for oily skin.

This product does a great job of removing oil but not sure if it removes dull skin.
Shlynn from Mississippi
For some strange reason, I stopped using this 3 step. I went years trying to find a "better" cleansing routine. Only if I would've consulted with a Clinique specialist years ago, I would've saved a lot of money.
I have realized this is a must have. Now that I am older, I have to use other products to go with the 3 step. My skin is better than ever & it does not irritate. I am never gonna stop using this ever again.
Terisa33 from Los Angeles
I bought this clarifying lotion because I heard a lot of good reviews about it. However, after I received it couple days ago, the strong alcoholic smell makes me question whether it will do good to my skin. I personally cares a lot about the scent of the product I use and this product gives me an unpleasant experience. I probably won't buy it again in the future
You NEED this in your life if you suffer from combination!
Brenda from Chicago IL
I use this after each wash (usually twice a day). It's very easily to apply so if you hate multiple step exfoliation (like me) this is for you! This got rid off all the dry patches I had, especially around my nose/upper lip area. Now my foundation doesn't flake off as it used!
It works for me

A friend recommended the Clarifying Lotion. My face cleared up but I felt that my face is still somewhat oily so I tried the Clarifying Lotion 3. I've been using the Clarifying Lotion 3 for many, many years now.
Definitely would buy this again

Ciara from Salina, KS
I use the 3 step cleaning routine twice a day and this works great. I feel like my face is clean afterwards. It doesn't dry out my skin. Won't use anything else.
hovppie from Yerevan
I used this exfoliator for 2 years and I love it. At first week of using it stung, because it contains alcohol, but after several uses that feeling disappeared. I like how refreshed, clean and good my skin feels after it.
C from Boston, MA
My face has been getting increasingly oily over the last 7 or so months since I am required to wear a mask at all times at work. I started using this product and almost instantly I could notice a difference. My breakouts cleared quickly. My face always feels so clean and refreshed after using. I have even noticed a difference in the texture of my face - it is so smooth! I will definitely continue to use this as part of my routine.
Feels fresh and clean
ann-san from NJ
I feel like it really cleans and takes off the dead skin but it's also mild enough. My skin can be sensitive and most products can be too harsh on my skin but this one is just perfect. I use it once at night and once in the morning.
Jazz from Miami, FL
I´ve been using this exfoliatior for a while and will never change for another. After every use, my skin feels very clean, refreshed and smooth. Love it.
mom40 from missouri
It's easy to apply, pleasant, and fits nicely even in the busiest routine.. and (surprise surprise) it actually makes my skin look better overnight. love it!
Anna from LA
I like this product . It clears my skin. I like clarifying lotion 2 and 3. It is fit for my skin
Refreshing & Cleansing!
Cat from CA
I love this more compared to #2, this one does not sting at all & leaves my skin feeling great. I do prefer the scent of #2 or maybe there's no scent, #3 has a faint scent I can't describe, perhaps its the plastic bottle not sure but scent aside it works good.
After 30 days, still don't know.
Junia from San Diego
I absolutely loved the first 3 days of the 3 step, smooth skin and all... then I started to notice my face oilier than ever! Now whenever I wake up everyday and see my face on the mirror, feels like I just fried chicken in a tiny kitchen :/
I've also been breaking out more.. I don't mind the price, I do like the moisturizer gel but I've been using this 3 steps religiously every day and night for a month and I'm deeply frustrated because I don't believe I'm supposed to "feel" like this, especially after waiting a long time to purchase them out of great reviews. Seeing my face shiny all the time is annoying :(

Helps get the dirt and oil left on face after using the liquid soap. Cleans pores really good, and makes your face feel nice and smooth.
ejm9766 from Muncy, PA
I love this product. It really preps the skin for moisturizing (which even if you have oily skin you must do). I feel so much less oily after using the whole clinique system for combo/oily skin. I have less breakouts, less oil and overall my skin feels healthier.
Will buy this again.
Skiing Cancer from McCammon, ID
I have tried other products but come back to Clarifying Lotion. My problem is I need a consultant to tell me if I need to change to #2 lotion. I have been using #3 for 35 yeers. My skin has changed but I do not know what I need. I am not going to drive 70 milesto Idaho Falls to a store that sells Clinique. I will be glad when ULTA opens so I can get some advice.

I just love this cleanser!
The Difference Maker at the best value
crobcary from Atlanta, GA
I've been using Clarifying Lotion 3 since I was 19 (I'm thirty-sdjkasdljsafj;sdk now), and even when I get the whim to try another clarifier/toner, I always end up coming back to this. SD alcohol can be controversial, but for those for whom it works, this is a holy grail. This provides me with just enough de-greasing and pore refining without being too strong. I'm so glad that the jumbo size seems to be more widely available, because it truly is the best value for a repeat customer like myself.
Best Skincare Product
Krystal from Hawaii
I love this product so much! it is easy to use, a great daily exfoliator, it seriously makes my skin feel so smooth and clean. it does have a slight burn if you go over any cuts but what doesn't. If you want an easy way to make your skin feel smooth and clean and bright this is perfect. Maybe not the best for people with sensitive skin but none the less great!
Ohhhh, this lotion!
Sarah A from FL
I have to start by saying that I didn't realized (don't know why) that I was using the wrong type of clarifying lotion for my combination oily skin. Then I "met" Clarifying Lotion 3 and my skin is so thankful I did. My skin does not feel dry at all. My T zone is happier with the use of this product. Highly recommended!
refreshing feel, helpful product
Ky from CO
I switched from the dry combination #2 to the oily skin formula #3 since I've been breaking out from wearing a mask recently. Really helpful!
