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.

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.

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.

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.
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!
Oksana from Dallas
Good lotion, I use it as a part of the 3 step routine. It cleans the skin well (even after washing and scrubbing the lotion-soaked cotton pad still picks up some impurities). Clearly makes the blackheads less visible (especially evident on the nose) and pores cleaner. Feels slightly tinglish upon application but doesn't dry the skin. The moisturizer glides on well on the lotion-prepped skin.
Wonderful right now
ember from DC
This is a great product. I use it as part of my cleansing routine and also use it the moment I come home each day. A gentle way to keep the summer sweat and outdoor grime under control and also helps me prevent 2020's new skin ailment, "maskne." It's just a straightforward and effective lotion in a nice looking bottle.
RodPhx from Phoenix
I am amazed how much my face skin feels clean even after I apply the Clarifying Lotion 3 for I have very oily skin. Even ever I use it, but skin does not feel dry and I can feel the freshness of my skin.
I highly recommend it if you have oily skin.
Just love it！
lina from New Mexico
It removes all the dirt that clogs my pores, smoothes my face and makes it less greasy.

Really like this product for my oily skin.
Anna from NORTH CAROLINA
Help to "clean" my skin, great to use in the afternoon when my face start to feel oily.
Helps clear up my acne!
Bamagirl from Alabama
I use the exfoliating scrub then this clarifying lotion which removes the last remnants of grime left on my face. Then I finish up with a moisturizer and my skin looks and feels so much better! I'm definitely impressed and would recommend this to anyone.
It has the big advantage
Ann92 from NJ
This lotion is not so mild as acne solution lotion but the face is really matte whole day no matter what cream do you prefer.
B from Maine
I was really wowed by this toner! It's so refreshing, feels clarifying, while also adding a layer of hydration under my moisturizer. I was surprised that it wasn't drying on my sensitive skin. Just ordered my next bottle!
Tricia from Richmond va
This was by far the worst product I've used on my face. It broke me out like crazy!
Ysenia from ARIZONA
I used this for two years and the first year it worked great. I started seeing a lot of my sweat pimples and acne clear and break outs became less and less. However I started noticing towards the end of the first year that no matter what moisturizer I followed up with, my face would be more oily. After my second bottle, I realized it wasn't the moisturizer but in fact the toner. And when I finally looked at the ingredients, I saw the denat.alcohol as the third ingredient!! Bad bad, this alcohol is not a moisturizing alcohol and will increase oil production over the span of time because it is dying the skin out. I stoped use after that.

Great but sometimes burn
marthiany from TX
As I grow older, I switched from acne clarifying lotion to this because of my combination skin. It works, it doesn't dry up too much. But sometimes I feel like burn sensation after using it.
Glad I switched
Shelle from Chesapeake, va
I was using other brand facial toner and cleanser, I would still have the still oily around my nose. I got the 3 combination oily care line and no more oily nose. My nose and chin are the only parts of my face that get oily but the 2 combination left it oily and the 3 works great.
Great job product
Ana from Georgia
It's a great product for my combination-oily skin! Love it!
