    Comments about Clinique Liquid Facial Soap - Oily Skin Formula:

    I've switched from philosophy face wash to this one because this does so much more for my skin. Helps to remove oil from skin, only a short term fix of course (oil never goes away). My skin feels so clean after using it. I've noticed my skin has even cleared up after using the 3 step system. 100% recommend to those who have acne and very oily skin.

                    I've been using the Acne Solutions cleansing foam for about four months now and my acne has cleared up completely. For the past few weeks though, every time I wash my face, it gets very red and blotchy for a few hours. Now that the acne has gone, would you recommend this cleanser, or different one from another line?

                      A:

                      Hi! Since your acne has cleared, you can begin using the Clinique 3 Step Skin Care System and Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel as a spot treatment for an occasional pimple. If your skin is oily in the t-zone and normal everywhere else you are a Skin Type 3 and would use Clinique Liquid Facial Soap - Oily Skin Formula, Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3, and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. If your skin is oily all over you are a Skin Type 4 and would use Clinique Liquid Facial Soap - Oily Skin Formula, Clinique Clarifying Lotion 4, and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
