A gentle, oil-free exfoliating lotion for dry or sensitive skin. This second step in Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care System is a true difference-maker for great skin. Developed by Clinique's dermatologists, the smoothing formula whisks away flakes and refines pores to reveal a clearer complexion and set the stage for effective hydration
My skin normally in the summer months here in Wisconsin is combination oily. Which I love the Clarifying Lotion #3 for. But when the winter months roll around my skin turns to combination dry. The main difference between these formulas (if anyone reading this doesn't know) is the amount of salicylic acid and alcohol in them. With the 3, my eyes will burn if I get it a little too close to my eye area, but with the 1 it's hardly noticeable that there's alcohol in it. It's very gentle and leaves my face feeling super clean but moisturized. I'm thinking of actually trying out the 2 for normal use throughout the year, but for now I'm in love with the 1.
