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
it is entirely too harsh on the skin. I used this for 3 days and felt like my skin was cracking. They have really good products but I feel lile they missed on the acne products
I only have the Clarifying Lotion + Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel from Clinique and I have a few spots left.I've had acne for 5-6 years and since I started using these products my skin looks amazing.If you have dry or normal skin they might dry it out because there is alcohol in it.The smell of the Clarifying Lotion is quite strong but I got used to it.A few years ago,my dermatologist even prescribed antibiotics and they helped a little but my skin was never flawless.I've been using the Clinique products for 3-4 weeks and the results are astonishing.If you have oily or combination oily skin this is the perfect product for you.I think that you can't go wrong with that one.
The best thing I have tried so far for my acne.
I recently got my paws on this set and I've been using it for about 2-3 months. So far, It has helped a ton compared to other acne systems I have tried but of course is has yet to completely cure my acne for good but at the same time, that is probably my fault. The type of acne I have is affected by hormones, what I eat, and what I put on my face so for me, nothing will completely cure my acne unless I'm exercising, watching what goes on my face, and eating healthy which I have to admit, I'm not always so great at doing. If you have acne like mine then I'd say this will help cure the worst parts of your acne. This system also seemed to break my face out for the first couple of days (maybe for a week) but then everything just slowly started to disappear so I'm going to assume it is the type of acne system that breaks your face out a tad just before it starts to show that its working, which isn't always bad and it didn't bother me but I wouldn't recommend this for a quick overnight fix or anything like that. It takes some time to work and takes commitment and of course, you have to use it as directed. It did dry my face out a little at first but that was fixed with lowering the dosage of the Clearing Moisturizer. Overall This product was very kind to me and I was not disappointed. I would probably buy it again and I would also recommend giving it a try.
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.
I really enjoyed these products. I had a breakout from some Neutrogena acne cream I was using. My skin is oily and I didn't realize that the lotion I was using was just adding on to the oiliness of my skin. My aunt recommended that I use the Clinique Acne System and a few days after I started I noticed results. I had little bumps on my cheeks that went away after a few weeks. The bumps on my forehead are still clearing up great. I have dark spots from old acne scars which I use the Clinique Even Better for. I would definitely recommend these products for breakouts.
saves my life
it can be drying, so I don't use it everyday. i use the lotion as a spot treatment. This really works for when you're really broken out. Just use a gentle moisturizer with it so you don't dry out.
