I am obsessed with this toner! Coming from being on accutane for the past eight months, my skin was disgustingly dry and irritable. I also suffer from getting a lot of red bumps and ingrown hairs from shaving my face. (I am a beautiful man BTW) this really helps to smooth out my skin and even calms down my redness. My skin is now fairly normal and on the dry side since coming from accutane but this does not irritate my skin in the slightest and i have super sensitive skin. It makes my skin brighter, pore tighter and give a deeper clean. I'be been using it everyday for the past three weeks and i am in love. There are no more bumps or redness and my pores are smaller! Try it girl it is worth it and it lasts for so long!
bought the Clinique three step in addition to the exfoliating scrub after I used samples for two weeks. I had high hopes for this product my face felt fabulous I liked the products very much, but on day 15 I came down with contact dermatitis and had to return the whole purchase. I have dry and very very sensitive skin I've never used skin care products on my face ever and I'm 57 years old. In my entire life I've had less than five pimples. In the past I've tried every now and then to adopt a skin care regime but it always ends like this. Because of Clinique' reputation for testing their products I thought this line of skincare would work for me. Despite my problem I would very much recommend this product for a friend because, I think most people can use these products safely

Using Clarifying Lotion is a regular part of my daily routine. I have tried toners, but they aren't the same as CL. I am 65, and I have received compliments about my skin for decades. The 3-step routine is perfect for my skin.

I have combination skin that is more oily than dry but this exfoliating lotion is amazing on my face! The ingredients nourish my skin without leaving my face too dry or too oily. I have used all the other exfoliating lotions by Clinique and this one, to me, is the best.
Sam from New York
I love this in the very dry to dry #1. I was using #2 dry combination but my face was turning red and breaking out. This stuff is better. It doesn't sting, it doesn't smell of alcohol, and it still gets the job done. Sensitive skin peeps #1 is for us!
tiffany from roseville mi
By far the best product line ive used. i switched to this line from another due to a chemical reaction i started having and my skin has been flawless ever since.
Kat from Pearland, Texas
I love this product. It removes the last little bit of make-up or cleanser. It never dries my skin out.
Breezy from California
Definitely not for me. It dehydrated my skin really badly. Using water to tone down the ingredients.
Sabrina from Sunny Florida
I have super dry skin and eczema - dry spots in my face. This toner cleans and refeeshes without drying out my skin. Love it! Been using this for years.

Vbocardo from Idaho
I can't say I love it or hate it just yet since I just bought it but so far I am liking it. It's very smooth feeling, dosent burn, isn't strong in smell and it is purging my skin which is no surprise but the breakout isn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be. So far I like it

even when i was my face i feel like i still might have dirt on my skin. I use this after to pull out the rest of the dirt and it works.
i use this along side my acne cream and they combo very well!

My skin is actually combination/dry but the toner for that skin type over dried my face so I tried this one instead. It's a great toner my skin looks brighter and I haven't had any breakouts or reactions to it. I love it.

I've been using this product every night for about a week. I have sensitive skin. Since I started using this my skin is starting to calm down. The redness on my cheeks and forehead isn't as dark

This really works to take all the soap off my face, makes my face feel clean....

I love Clinique skincare as it tends to agree with my face a lot so I wanted to try this to help with flaking and dryness especially around my chin and jaws. After 1 week of using I found it did brighten my face and helped a lot with the dryness! However, alcohol denatured is the 2nd ingredient which I think is responsible for the tight feeling of my skin after using this product but before putting on moisturizer. I still have yeg to try the Thazel's toner and see how it compares to Clinique. Overall, good product and effective
Rosa from PA
This product is very good for dry skin. I use it twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. This product has really helped, and makes my skin feel great.
Emily H from Cincinnati, OH
I really wanted to love this. I am 19 years old and have dry skin so I thought I'd give it a shot. I realized as soon as I got it that denatured alcohol is the second ingredient! Not only is denatured alcohol cheap, but is is also not good for your skin at this high of a concentration!! It was okay for a few days of use, but today my face is broken out, red, and very very itchy. I'm super disappointed :(
Ena from Stockton
Great for extra sensitive skin like mine. Love it.
Kate from Dallas, TX
I love this toner so much. I had used Clinique years ago, but I stopped because it seemed really drying. It turns out, the consultant helping me had given me the clarifying lotion 2, which is for dry-combination skin. There is nothing combination about my skin. I'm just dry. So many products are too harsh. I ended up trying Clinique again- this product after the extra mild liquid facial soup. My skin is so happy now!
HayNic from Tennessee
This is great product for someone with dry skin. It's helped my skin tremendously. I use it once in the morning and again before bed. I've only been using it a couple weeks and I could tell a difference in my skin within a few days.
cass from Dallas
I typically don't leave reviews, but this stuff is the product I never knew I needed. I always have dry patches on my face. They wouldn't go away no matter how much moisturizer I used. In comes this product. It literally takes the dry patches off & leaves you with smooth skin! Will def buy again!
Erica from Russellville, MO
I had been using Thayers Witch Hazel as a toner before switching to this. An Ulta consultant recommended this after telling her about my dry flakey skin and even with having slightly combination skin this has been great! I can tell when i skip a day or two without using this. I use it everything morning and night during my skincare routine. I wash with Cerve hydrating wash in the morning and clinique pepstart exfoliating scrub to wash at night. The only thing i would change is the bottle opening, I would prefer to have more control over how much product i pour out or a flip cap would be nice.
Victoria Bradford from Fishers, IN
I was hesitant when starting this product as nothing has been able to get rid of my flaking dry skin without drying it out more, but after using this product I no longer have dry, flaking skin! I use it as directed twice a day, morning and night, and follow up with a moisturizer (I use Cerave). My skin has never looked healthier, more refreshed, and brighter! I have very sensitive skin and everything I've tried in the past has broken me out or caused red irritation bumps, but this product did neither! I'm shocked at how well it works yet still so gentle! If you have dry and sensitive skin, I would highly recommend this product!
Angie from ORLANDO,Fl
I have some blackness in my face and I ask products I can use, without any hesitation she recommended this. Also told me to used it twice a day.. it does clean my face but I truly haven't seen and change.. but I just start using it 3 days ago so I understand
Beckster from Boston, MA
I've used Clinique products faithfully over the years. Especially this toner. My skin has changed over the years as well. I've always had combination skin and oily skin in the summer. But lately in the Winter my skin has been so dry. So I thought about switching toner numbers and over the year I've used all 4 expect 1. I decided to switch from a #3 toner to #1 toner. But since my skin has been so dry I gave it try. And its life changing lol. My skin feels so comfortable and not dry. We need to listen to what our skin is telling us.
