        Comments about Clinique Clarifying Lotion 4 - For Oily Skin:

        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.

              • Q:

                what percent is the salicylic acid in this clarifying lotion 4? is this the strongest clarifier or is acne solutions clarifying lotion stronger? is there a mens formula?

                  A:

                  Hi! Thank you for your question! We do have a men's formula, which is equivalent to the women's #4. If you are looking for oil control, I suggest clarifying lotion #4, as it targets oil control specifically. If you are battling acne, I suggest using the Acne Solution Clarifying Lotion and the Acne Clear Skin System. This clarifying lotion focuses primarily on fighting bacteria, while absorbing oil. I would not say that one is particularly stronger than the other, as they target unique needs, based on your skin goals.
                  Our Research and Development teams have demonstrated that a product's effectiveness is not dependent upon any one particular ingredient, but rather the combination of ingredients in a particular formula. For proprietary reasons, we do not disclose ingredient percentages, however, you can be sure that the Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing 3 Step System, as well as the Basic Clinique 3 Step Skin Care System is scientifically balanced to enhance the look and feel of your skin.
                  Have a wonderful week and thank you for reaching out.

                this product has alcohol in it. will it dry my skin out?

                  A:

                  Hi! Clarifying Lotions 1-4 contain a cosmetic grade alcohol. This type of alcohol will not dry your skin. It is used as a cleansing agent, allows the product to evaporate from the skin quickly, and also keeps the formula in its liquid state. If you are a skin type #4 with more of an oily skin, this should be a great formula for you. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
