WIll Never Use Anything Else!
I was the epitome of bad skin. I had used AcneClear, Clearisil, Neutragenia, the list goes on and on and on. NOTHING would even touch my acne! I was even on prescription creams and pills. As a last ditch effort, I tried this and that same day something just felt different about my skin - clean and fresh and revitalized. Within 2 weeks all of the old acne was gone and the redness was going away. Now, it is over a month later and I am STILL blemish free! I am finally proud to wear my skin with no foundation or concealer! I will use this product for the rest of my life!
With my combination skin (oily T-zone and dry/sensitive cheeks) it can be hard to find the right product. The Clinique Acne Solutions Set not only helps calm my skin of irritation and breakouts, but prevents them from coming back. Now obviously my acne hasn't totally vanished forever...but I know for a fact my skin would be much worse without it, The first step: the foam cleanser, is by far my favorite part. I tie my hair back and gently buff the foam into my skin with my fingertips. After rinsing my face I immediately feel refreshed and clean. The second step: the exfoliator, I apply with a cottonball and sweep across all areas of my face to remove any dead skin or makeup i might have missed. (DO NOT GET NEAR EYES) I try to only use this product around oily surfaces on my face, as it can dry up my already sensitive skin. Finally the third step: the moisturizer. This is probably one of my all time favorite moisturizers ever. Its light coverage and non-oily texture leaves me feeling fresh and ready for makeup or bed. The entire process can only be compared to having a just started a fresh piece of spearmint-gum. You instantly feel refreshed and clean;the only difference is the good feeling doesn't fade. :)
Quick results, non drying.
Ok, having tried every acne method out there, this one was the best I've ever used. My acne is now clear but I still continue to use this when I get my monthly occasional breakouts. I like that it has salicylic acid. It's much more gentle and wont stain youre towels white! But the system delivers results. That's my biggest reccomendation to anyone considering purchase. You need all 3 steps, because thats what delivers the most powerful results. Also it's a very resonable price, I believe it's 61.50 for all three. It may dry a little bit after the first week of initial use, but nothing that you can't stand or that becomes bothersome. I noticed my skin getting more clear and smoother by 2 weeks into treatment. Also, other people noticed and complemented my skin, which we all know is the best compliment out there! It totally wiped out my breakouts! The only resaon I give 4 1/2 stars is because I've heard from some people that it stops working or "plateaus" after so long. I never had that issue. I strongly reccomend.
My Go-To Product
I never had bad acne and I went to college and that all changed. I tried everything even the clearisonic but nothing was working. This product is perfect for acne. Cleared my skin up in about a week. The only problem I had with it is that the third step dried out my skin because I was using it twice a day. They also have a product for sensitive skin! I reduced it to once a day and I was fine. Now that my acne cleared up I only use it when needed. Also, the spot treatment is amazing along with the concealer for acne. It also works as a spot treatment as well as covering up blemishes.
I used this set everyday for 2 years and a half however it does not banish my acne . Stopped using it . I dislike the toner because of the alcohol smell and it stings my face . The moisturizer was somehow sticky and did not control oil production . But i like the face wash was gentle to the skin .
I adore these
I used to work with this brand once a week for a few weeks for college and every time I was in I put on a bit of the blemish balm, after just 3 applications I could already see the results, less spots, no redness, it was fantastic! will absolutely be buying some soon!
Works good, but expensive!!!
This is probably the best acne system I've tried so far. This really helped clear up my skin for about 2-3 weeks. The reason it cleared my skin up for such little time is because I ran out. The travel sized system itself is $40! (Full size around $80) I was appalled at the price of these products. This system includes a foaming face wash, a toner, and a lotion. The full size foaming face wash ran out quicker than the toner and lotion. This system is comparable to Proactiv. If you like this system, and don't want to break the bank I recommend trying Proactiv. I have not re-purchased this system and probably won't until I make more money.
okay product. I had mild acne.. Used this for I think less than a week and my face was dry everywhere. Could barely move my face. It works but dries the face extremely. I ended up not using the 'moisterizer', does not moisturize at all.
I really liked this product compared to other acne systems this one is reasonably priced. I really like the toner/Lotion however the moisturizer is ok. the mask could have been better but it is gental enough for daily use.
At first I found these products to be good, but after about a week my face was really drying out and I was getting more and more breakouts. The moisturiser isn't very moisurising and left my skin with flakey dry patches. Would not recommend for oily combination skin type
