Terrible breakout after using!

Comments about Clinique Liquid Facial Soap - Oily Skin Formula:

I'm 30. I have oily skin. If I were to rate my acne, it would typically be a 5/10, with 10 being the worst. My skin is not sensitive to products. I wanted to try a new face wash, toner and lotion. I got the three step system from Clinique and I regret it so much. After about 1.5-2 weeks of use, my skin broke out worse than it EVER has in my ENTIRE life. It's been about three weeks since I stopped and my face is STILL trying to heal. I feel so self conscious about my skin right now. To help my face heal, I've been spraying salt water on my face, letting it dry, and then rinsing it off before washing my face (with a gentle Neutrogena face wash), and that had helped A LOT (look it up). Anyway, I would not recommend this to anybody with skin similar to my own.

    I've tried every grocery store brand from Aveeno to Olay. I try to be frugal but this facial system is worth the money to me. Ive got oily combination skin and mostly deal with black\white heads. My skin glows and feels clean.

    A must have for oily skin

    By Black Berry

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about Clinique Liquid Facial Soap - Oily Skin Formula:

    I was provided a sample of the liquid facial soap for oily skin and after two days of use I decided to go in and buy the 5oz tube. This product is amazing! A little goes a long way and it's very easy to apply. The smell is not overwhelming and it lathers just enough to melt away make-up and leaves skin feeling clean and not over washed to the point of drying the skin completely out. I am 43 yrs old with combination oily skin. I love this product because it doesn't leave the non-oily areas feeling tight. Prior to purchasing this product I had been going through a cycle of breakouts. I was purchasing and returning product so much that I had become frustrated because nothing was working. Products were either underwhelming or completely overwhelming. After one week of using Clinique my skin feels calm and feels refreshed. I will continue purchasing this product from here on out.

        Got this as a sample and I'm definitely going to buy it. It cleans my face without drying out the 2 tiny patches of normal skin I have. I guess the only con, it isn't much of one at that, is it has a funky, thick slightly sticky texture. It does the job though!

          This cleaned my makeup off pretty well but I've never had a face wash burn burn quite so bad! Super drying as well, that may work for super oily skin but it did not for me.

          By Josie

          from Alabama

          Comments about Clinique Liquid Facial Soap - Oily Skin Formula:

          I bought this hoping it would help with my super oily acne prone skin, after only using it for 5 days it had broken me out in places I never break out and had totally dried out my skin. I was very disappointed and returned the product.

For proprietary reasons, we do not disclose ingredient percentages or product pH; however, you can be sure that the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap- Oily Skin Formula is scientifically balanced to enhance the look and feel of your skin. Thanks for your question and have a great week!

            Hi! I have an oily T-zone, but my skin gets dehydrated very easily. Sometimes I will get dry flakey spots on my face but oil still seeps through and makes my skin look gross. Would this cleanser be okay? (Side note: I use the moisturizing gel and like it)

          • Q:

            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!

          • Q:

            What if you started off using the Acne Solutions line and your face has cleared all the way with the exception of the occasional pimple, is it safe to switch to this line or do you recommend sticking with the Acne Solutions line?
