I have the clinique 3 step program, but this is the only thing i use religiously out of the program. I have really bad blackheads all over my nose area and cheeks and chin. I had used this product a couple months ago, and noticed that all of my blackheads were completely gone. I stopped using it, and they came back. I hadnt realized that THIS product was removing my blackheads, but i use this 1x daily and my nose is completely free from blackheads and feels so smooth.

Favorite toner ever. I like this toner because it doesn't burn and it doesn't leave any kind of film or stickiness on my skin. It also makes it feel really soft. Best of all it removes any dirt or makeup my cleanser left behind in my pores. I've been repurchasing this product for over two years.

I did NOT buy this someone gave me a 3 step system for Christmas, because I had ran out of my favorite toner and hadn't bought more, I tried some BIG! mistake. it smells like vodka and I noticed that it made my face feel sticky. you might as well go buy some target brand "up&up" nail polish remover and smear it all over your face:P
DONT BUY THIS

I didn't like his product AT ALL. This is the prduct that ruined my skin. Before I used this I used Pro Activ and found it just wasn't working for me. So my step mother suggested the Cliniqe 3 step regimen. This burned my skin so bad and made it so red. It also made my skin super oily and you know what that means...breakouts. So I thought about the saying "It has to get worse before it gets better" so I kept using it thinking it would get better...nope. Juuuust got worse. Hope this is helpful.

I'm currently using my 4th large size of this toner. I love it! It has helped clear my breakouts and brighten my skin. Best of all it keeps my skin clear! I've tried #2 and I hated it (contains menthol) but #3 is perfect for my oily, acne prone skin. I will always repurchase this fab product!

I've been using Clinique toners for about 9 years. I started off with Clarifying Lotion #3 when I had cystic acne. Lotion #3 helped clear up my acne SO much in the first 1-2 years. after 4 years of religious use, my skin actually repaired itself enough to look like totally normal, healthy, wonderful skin, thanks to the toner. people are shocked when I show them my cystic acne pics. I feel "cured" now. I have since switched to Lotion #2 when my skin became normal.
yes, its alcohol based but I do believe some skin types will suit it. for reference I have combination, sensitive skin, which is occasionally acne prone (I still get some cystic pimples when i'm extremely stressed). I've tried other brands of toner (avene, body shop, etc) but they are "weak" on my skin. this perfectly cleans every last vestige of cleanser, makeup, dead skin cells, and bacteria off my skin, twice a day.
I believe it has a mild "exfoliating" effect as well, since it effectively removes any dry skin flakes and creates a perfect smooth canvas for makeup. I wouldn't dream of putting on makeup unless my skin has been buffed with this toner on a cotton pad. I can really feel my skin incredibly healthy and radiant when I use this. when I switch to other brands my skin is less smooth, "rubbery", and develops tiny bumps.
do give it a try and perhaps drop to Lotion #2 or even #1 if you feel this is too harsh. consult the Clinique staff for great recommendations and advice. :)

I love this! I don't really know why it's called a lotion but whatever. I initially bought it at Macy's and bought it in the "travel size" pack with a face wash and moisturizing gel. I apply a tiny bit to a cotton ball and just swipe once over each part of my face. A little goes a long way with most Clinique face products. If you buy this, get someone to help you who actually works at Clinique, which may mean going to Macy's and getting someone who works for Clinique. They can match you perfectly with which number to get. Definitely will repurchase.

When you open this, the smell of alcohol hits you in the face! I hate it, it gave me really big boils, initially I thought it was cause I was in London for a while so the air could have been effecting my skin then I didn't use it one day and my skin cleared immediately... Don't waste your money on this, it's terrible

I LOVE THIS!
I'm only 16, but am struggling with severe breakouts, oiliness and redness, which is probably caused by puberty but this toner...it's my holy grail product. It controls my oiliness perfectly, leaves my skin perfectly clean and when used with a moisturizer afterwards (like you definitely should since this contains alcohol which can be drying) it doesnt leave my skin feel tight or dry at all. I guess this is a product that works very different for everyone. If you havent used Cliniques lotions before you should definitely start with a low number lotion (1, eventhough it's for very dry to dry skin) to see how your skin reacts to the alcohol. I started with 2 and then moved to the 3 which I think has changed my skin completely.
THANK YOU CLINIQUE!

I used to have some oily areas and breakouts so i started using this and i must admit it does burn while it is on your skin but within 30 seconds spots shrink down, are less red and my face feels cleaner, oily is gone all day.
After using this only splash your face with cold water for a minute, my skin isnt sensitive but i actually don't mind the tingle/burn, my pores are noticable smaller
The smell is quite strong- if you sniff it your eyes will water, its like nail polish remover.
This product is very effective but if you have dry cracked skin, steer clear it will sting! If you're spotty and oily, it will really help!
