I love this moisturiser, I have been using it for just over a month night and day (Along with the three step program) and I think that it has definitely made an improvement to my skin. I have just finished the tube and I will be buying some more :)

I have combinaiton skin, so frequently broke out on my forehead, nose and chin.
I've been using this product (with step and 2 from the Anti-Blemish range) for over three years and it definitely keeps the blemishes at bay!
I do find that this moisturiser dries my skin (cheek area) so I only use this at night, before sleeping, and use a heavier moisturiser in the morning.
Overall, highly recommend if you have oily / combo skin!

After a couple of years of using other Clinque products (DDM gel, facial soap for oily skin and step2 toner) I decided to give the Anti-Blemish 3-Step a try, including this moisturiser, as my skin felt really oily all the time and kept breaking out. I nearly gave up after a couple of weeks because it seemed to be drying my skin out but then all of a sudden my skin seemed to settle down and the difference was amazing - much less oily, pores seemed smaller and definitely fewer lumps. Have been using it for almost 2 months now and it still seems to be working wonders for my skin. Only down side is the price, although it'll be interesting to see how long this tube lasts. Defintely an HG moisturiser at the moment - but only time will tell!

this product is way too expensive for such a small bottle.
it doesnt even work as a moisturizer, my skin is dry and flaky after using.
the lady at sephora warned me not to buy the regular moisturizer because i have acne. i used it for about a week or so, my old acne did clear up after using this, but it didnt stop new ones from popping out. so i dont really know if it works
though in wont return it (because i hate returning things) i most likely wont repurchase it again

After seeing all the good reviews about Cliniques Anti Blemish Solutions/Acne Solutions line I was desperate to try it, hoping it might sort out my long term adult acne.
But I soon realised that the european version of this line (Anti Blemish as opposed to Acne Solutions) does not contain the same ingredients. I really wanted to try the Acne Solutions Clearing Moisturizer, which contains 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide but this is not available in the UK - the UK equivaltent contains Salicylic acid instead. Nevertheless, I'd seen that the Anti Blemish Solutions 3 step (UK version) has some great reviews at Boots.com and Debenhams, so I decided to purchase the foaming cleanser, clarifying lotion, clearing moisturizer, mask and emergency gel.
I wasn't disappointed! I could see a difference after one night and after a week of using the 3 step twice a day, my skin has really cleard up and healed. I haven't had a single new blemish appear. I always used Differin at night and Oxy 10 under my moisturiser during the day but since starting the Clinique system I've been able to discontinue the Oxy 10 and I'm planning to cut out the Differin as well. I would thoroughly recommend everything in this line. It's made my skin so much less oily, but not too dry either. None of the peeling that you can get from benzoyl peroxide. I don't need to wear anything like as much make up, which is a bonus!

This is my everyday moisturiser. My face feels amazingly soft after applying but I constantly need to powder my face during the day as it does nothing to control my oily skin. It really doesn't do a whole lot to add moisture to the dryer parts of my face either so I find myself applying a heavier moisturiser at night, as I need it. I find it doesn't really have a scent and it absorbs into the skin quite quickly. For me at least, a little goes a long way and one tube lasts me quite a while.
It's definitely pricey and I wish it did a little more for oil control (or at least moisturise a little more thoroughly) but I hardly ever break out any more and I suppose that's all I can really ask for from this product.

I have to admit that this is a good moisturizer for my super sensitive, acne prone, clogging skin.
The smell is a bit weird but it is easy to apply and it is more of a gel than a cream.
My face is refreshed, the appereance of my skin texture is improved, I don't have any pimple (at least for the moment) and it is not clogging.
The downsides: it is expensive for my budget and my face is oily after very few hours. Maybe I will repurchase.

This is alright If you use it with the DDMG underneath, like the 3-step system says. It helps a bit wih my redness and makes my skin feel comfortable. Its just okay.

Did not moisturize! Left my skin dried out and itchy!
I bought this along with the rest of the acne solutions line. My skin is fairly sensitive and combination. Usually, after washing, my face gets tight and dry and is irritated (making it more sensitive). I put on this moisturizer and it stung a little. Now, I know it has acne fighting properties in it. I was excited about that since it's in a moisturizer it will be in contact with my skin longer, the better to work its magic, right? Nope. It didn't moisturize! It dried my skin further and made it itchy. I used it twice (once in the evening before bed, and once in the morning before my makeup) with the same results. Left my skin dry and tight. I took it back and exchanged it for a more hydrating moisturizer.

I didn't buy this with the expectation that it would be a miracle worker. I have blemish prone skin - not full-on acne, but I usually have a few annoying red pimples hanging around on my forehead and chin. I recently purchased the Anti-Blemish Solutions 3-step kit from Clinique, including the Cleanser, Toner and Moisturizer, and the only product of the 3 that I will not be repurchasing is the moisturizer.
The moisturizer is nice enough at first. It has a light creamy consistency that smells clinical, absorbs quickly into the skin and does keep the oil at bay for a while. I have oily skin so that was initially a bonus for me. (For people with dry skin, be careful how much/how often you use the anti-blemish solutions range because the packaging does indicate that it has a drying effect on skin). The first time I used the moisturiser was at night, and I woke up the next day with primarily soft skin. However, most moisturizers provide this effect, for a much smaller price. Additionally, other moisturisers i've used before haven't aggravated my existing blemishes, which is what this one did. Not only did it fail help clear up my skin whatsoever, or to help protect my skin from future blemishes, it made my skin worse. A lot worse.
The girl working at Clinique told me that for the first week I may notice my skin releasing more oil than normal, as the range of products will be helping to extract the existing oil from my skin, and that within a couple of weeks it will have cleared up and the products will continue to prevent future break-outs. I took her advice and used the 3-step system for 2 and a half weeks, but on my forehead my pimples were becoming bigger and more painful. While my skin was less oily than normal, these zits were still popping up. I wasn't willing to give up on the whole set, because A) I had spent a lot of money on this kit, and B) I was suspicious that the moisturizer was the cause of these sore new bumps.
So, after 2.5 weeks of enduring my skin changes, I stopped using the moisturizer, replacing it with my usual Body Shop Tea Tree Night-Fade lotion (which has always provided pleasing results compared to other moisturizers for oily skin) however I continued using the Clinique Cleanser and Toner from the Anti-Blemish Solutions range. I like using them because they really clean my skin well, help prevent such excessive oil release and leave my skin with a nice and tight, yet supple and smooth texture, without being over-drying. My skin has reacted positively since removing the moisturizer from my routine. Perhaps this is just how my skin reacted, but I sure didn't like paying so much for a product I will no longer continue to use. While I sing praise for the Cleanser and Toner from this line, I would give the moisturizer a miss. You can get a much more effective one for a smaller price and bypass the risk of increasing the number of blemishes you have. If you don't have a problem with pimples/breakouts, but just have oily skin, this may work well for you.
