for mild acne only..
these products are for sensitive skin and for me, it did little to nothing for my acne. my skin can take a beating when it comes to exfoliating and astringents and this did nothing to minimize my acne- even after prolonged use. if you rarely get breakouts, or just around the time of your period i would suggest this, but if you consider yourself a sufferer of acne try investing in something else first.
I found it too greasy! I saw my friend with it and her face was glowing, but when I tried it like i said before when I touched my face, my T-zone was full of oil. It was despicable. I will never use that product again!
I got a sample of this from Sephora. I loved loved loved it. I went out and bought the whole three step set. I have sensitive skin too. What the Clinique woman didn't tell me was that this would be too harsh for my skin. Since it has a clarifying cleanser which strips your skin, an exfoliating toner, and an exfoliating moisturizer. It exfoliated too much. It ended up burning the top layer of my skin on my face, as if I had a harsh face peel. My face is still recovering and it was over a month ago that I stopped using this.

A few months ago I met this girl with a really healthy and fabulous skin and I asked her what products she used, and she told me about the 3 step plan. So I decided to try it out for myself. And I really love it!! It does wonders for my (very dry) skin.
Sometimes I do need to use an eye cream or a day cream, but most of the time the 3 steps work very well for me.
I started using this back in December and it literally has been heaven on my skin. I have noticed a dramatic difference in the way my skin looks and feels. And even though I have changed up my face routine a bit since I always keep at least one of their items in it because I swear my skin goes screwy without it!
The soap was too harsh and the moisturizer was far too greasy. The only decent part about the trio was the clarifying lotion, and even that wasn't that memorable. It was a complete waste of my money to try this. I threw the soap out, used the toner until it was gone, and saved the moisturizer for winter nights where I needed to put something heavier on my elbows/feet/hands at night.
Skin Type #2
Facial Soap: Very mild, I suggest using a facial loofah or cotton pad to help with additional exfoliation. I find that one pump is enough soap to wash my face in the AM. At night, I use Clinique's Take The Day Off Makeup Remover and pump the soap twice.
Toner: Its smells a little strong and if you are just starting the 3-step, you will break out more because all of your impurities are surfacing, but once your skin starts to calm down, you will see a difference. Apply with a cotton ball, additional exfoliation is not necessary.
Moisturizer: The #2 3-step comes with the lotion NOT the gel. I find that again, a little bit goes a long way and if additional moisture is needed, pair it with Clinique's Moisture Surge for your dry spots.
Wish everything was easy as 1, 2, 3...
Facial Soap: Cleans well, not too harsh.
Toner: Feels tingly, but cleans up well...may feel a bit tight but once you
Moisturize: Everything is a ok
I was breaking out A LOT & bought this & now I get the occasional period pimple. DAMN YOU MOTHER NATURE.
I got a pretty generous sample of this from Sephora for no particular reason and I was really excited to use it. I had heard great things about this, and I thought it would help cut down on the occasional breakout/blemish that I get. I was wrong. It didn't change anything after I used it for a month. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't super great. I did like that it didn't dry out my skin at all. A lot of gel cleansers do that to my skin, but this kept it pretty balanced.
i got the weeks tester kit as a gift from sephora for having enough beauty points and after using the cleansing lotion, which i lovvvvve then the toner and then the moisturizer, i honestly saw results just about the next day. i really love it and am planning on buying more when i get enough!
