Most Helpful Positive Review Makes a difference
So I have really crazy oily skin. I end up being shiny and leave a film of oil on my glasses daily, it's a struggle. And I have noticed a difference in the production of oil of my skin once I started using it. I use it at night to purify my skin and before I moisturize it at bedtime. Now through out the day I only blot once or twice verses the constant battle I used to face. I recommend it. It wasn't a quick fix or completely tamed my skin, but it helped immensely and I have noticed a difference.
Most Helpful Critical Review Helped clear t-zone
Did the trick, cleared up my t-zone. However I will be buying an alcohol-free toner next time. I've read too many article on the negative effects alcohol has on skin
Reviewed by 91 customers A Favorite for Over 40 Years
cmwrenne from Nashville, TN
I have used this product for over forty years and love that it still works for me. Although I am in my sixties, I still get skin breakouts from time to time. When this happens, I take a Q-Tip and run very warm water over one end for a minute, then apply it to the blemish for about 30 seconds. Then I saturate the other end of the Q-Tip with Clarifying Lotion and after drying the blemish, I apply the end with Clarifying Lotion to the blemish for 15 seconds. For stubborn blemishes, I do this several times. It has never failed me yet!
Not Just For Teenagers
Bella Rosa from Matawan, NJ
I use it daily on the oily parts of my face and sometimes all over my face, like in the summer time or after workouts. It keeps my skin clean and the pores minimized.
Like paint stripper!
S Watkins from Los Angeles, CA
I used this only once and had to stop using it as this toner stung. My skin isn't even that sensitive but somehow reacted badly to this. Oily skin benefits from hydration anyway, stripping it off oil via alcohol (as in this product) only results in more oil production. Will try an alcohol-free toner next.
I get this mounthly it's perfect for oily skin
The Southern Belle from Maryville, TN
I have oily skin and this makes it disappear. Which then also helps with acne problems I use daily.
Excellent product to make skin smoother & unclog pores.
Teacher from Marinette, WI
I worked in cosmetics over 20 years ago when I discovered this and saw that makeup goes on better & skin looks looks more vibrant for all who used it.
Oily Skin Chick from Gonzales, La
I have been using this toner for years. It's a staple in my facial regime. It has complimented every cleanser I've tried.
Smelly and drying
AsdfAsdf from MI
I bought this to control oily skin based on reviews and my own product search. I did not use it as part of a Clinique regimen.
This smells like malt alcohol and is very drying for my oily/combination skin. Hard for me to keep trying to use it to see if the oil goes down because it smells so bad to me.
I'm going to purchase this product, again.
Mamasickle from Alexandria, LA
If you have oily skin then I highly recommend this product and the other two products that should be used with this product.
Just pour alcohol on your face
Hays from Miami
This kills me that it's called "clarifying LOTION." I can't believe I used this for so long and trusted Clinique because it was a prestigious brand and "allergy tested." This stuff is essentially denatured alcohol (read the ingredient list) that dries out the skin to make you think it's getting rid of your oiliness and it contains multiple dyes. (Allergy tested?!) I've since switched to an alcohol free/dye free, all natural toner and my skin feels amazing and healthy. Don't let Clinique fool you!
I've used this for years can't go without it
Hilary from Warner Robins Ga
I use this twice daily after washing with Clinique face wash
Berni from Chesapeake VA
Love the clean feeling on skin
Using for years
Animosity from Moses Lake Washington
I have been using this since I was a teenager. I would recommend clinique face care to anyone, especially those who have sensitive skin.
Great product. Have been using it for years.
Pluzer from Ky
Have used this for 20+ years. Love it. Doesn't over dry
TG18 from Phoenix AZ
This toner works wonders. Yes there are lots of other brands out there, but Clinique has had a long lasting tenure in the beauty business. And their products just keep getting better and better. Try ANYTHING from Clinique and you'll never be disappointed!
S from Grand Junction
Use 2 times daily
This is perfection and also stops my breakouts!
Mikki from Omaha, NE
I use this twice a day. It definitely helps with oils all day long I don't get half as oily anymore, I already see improvement on blemishes and clears away all makeup and dirt after washing face that's left behind.
Yes indeed I would buy it again.
Catteyes from Virginia
This product is good for all skin Types
Becky from Porterville
I love this product and line!
My skin is looking amazing
Erica from Dallas, TX
I bought this one cause my skin gets oily in the winter time ( I was using #3). My skin is no longer oily, now it does dry out my skin after I use it but once I put on the moisturizing lotion, that fixes that issue.
D Dane from Hattiesburg, MS
Great product for sensitive skin.
Pam from Reno NV
I use it everyday. Love it!
I would buy again
Ness from Philadelphia
Love the clarifying lotion - Ulta, not so much
Iva from New Jersey
I've been a loyal Clinique makeup user for over 15 years and love your skin care products like the 3-step acne solution kit and wanted to try something new to combat my oily skin. Being someone who has suffered from acne for most of her life, the products from Clinique were always highly recommended by my dermatologist and have yet to let me down.
I will buy this product again.
Dev from Aliqluippa PA
I use it twice a day after I wash my face.
I will not stop buying this product.
Ana from Watsonville
I've used this product for many year. It's great over all.
