This was my first toner I ever bought from Clinique as a oily faced teenager! I like their oily bar soap a lot so I figured I should try their toner as a 2 nd step also & I don't want to go too strong to the #4 strength for fear of burning me with the alcohol & I knew the #2 toner did nothing & was bad just alcohol & menthol! The only toners that do any exfoliating is the 3 4 & acne onesFrom what I recall as a teenager it was such a while ago ii think 💭 I just used it only every once in a while to freshen up my face in between washing my face to keep down the oil ! I never did their twice a day exfoliating thing Bc I knew all the alcohol was going to be bad for my skin! I would never buy this again & I have so many little try me samples of this toner I got which Il use up but never buy their toners again! I'm a # 4 in their skin diagnosis I really like the analogy of how some reviewers have said Clinique clarifying lotions are the junk food & fast food of skincare! LOL! &I agree especially in back in the day when their antiiquated 3 steps only had bar soap & the yellow oily lotion as a option only! It's this harsh system that gives Clinique its bad reputation! I think Clinique cleansers & toners are better suited for oily younger tougher skin types that are sensitive to fragrance

Worst toner I ever tried; should be called alcoholic potion rather than a “toner”!

This toner is actually good on my skin. It looks luminous after application and it surprisingly does not dry out my skin. I actually find it quite peculiar that this toner helped reduce my blackheads (compared to the Clinique acne solutions toner) because this one does not have salicylic acid. One thing that I would like to point out is it contains alcohol so it might dry out your skin. I am aware that alcohol-based toner is not good for prolong use so I am not going to repurchase it. Price wise I do not think it is good value because it is mainly alcohol; I can find a lower priced toner with alcohol in it. Gotta say I wish the packaging has a small opening to it so it does not spill off too much products and also to keep it cleaner.Two toner application tips that I have for you is to spray thermal water after washing your face, just to make sure that the tap water is completely off of your skin after you applied the toner with cotton pads. The second tip is after applying toner with cotton, pour small amount of toner on your hands and spread it all over your face—make sure it is not too wet or too dry. Place your hands on top of your face to heat your face up so that you skin can absorb the toner well. Then, make sure to apply moisturizer on your skin so it does not dry out. Hope it works out for you because it gives so much improvement to my skin

I've been using Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3 or #4 on and off since I was in my teens. I'm in my 60's now. My skin still has a tendency to oiliness, even at this age, and the clarifying lotion helps to truly clean out my pores when nothing else does. My current routine is Ernest Laszlo and, while my skin had been looking good, perhaps it was the change in seasons...it became muddy looking with a few small blemishes. I pulled out my Clinique #3 and within a day the muddiness was gone and my skin was - yes - clarified. I always have this in my cabinet.

This toner is overpriced. It didn't do anything beneficial for my skin, I felt that I could have had similar results by just wiping my face with cotton dipped in alcohol. Didn't break me out though and when used with moisturiser didn't dry my skin out. I wouldn't repurchase as I didn't see any difference in my skin

I bought this product because I ran out of my last toner. I have combination to oily skin so I thought why not give it a try. The experience was not fun at all. It dries my skin out too much since it contains alcohol. I can smell the alcohol scent right after opening the bottle. My skin broke out and turned flaky after a few uses.

Despite having oily skin I used the now sadly discontinued mild toner as a morning toner and had been happy with it. Sales assistant persuaded me to buy this one. First thing I noticed on application is the very, very strong smell of alcohol and that it can sting a little on application. Looking at the cotton pad after I've used it, it does seem to clean the skin squeaky clean, however, I wonder if it just makes my skin oilier with the high alcohol content. I'm not convinced about this product and won't be buying again

I love this product! I used a Clean & Clear toner, and I tried this lotion for a month and I LOVE IT. I ended up, buying my own. Which I love the most about this product is that even I have washed my face, when you apply it (I use a cotton pad) you can still see some dirt in it, so you can tell it is doing it's job.At first it break me out, but I read some reviews that said it was normal to happened, so it didn't bother me at all.Now my face is clean, and I really enjoy using this product. I doesn't irritated my skin, for me it controls oil and the bottle is really big, and you don't have to spend a lot of the product on your face, so the price is very reasonable. I bet it would last.

For me personally I have been really pleased with the results from this product. At first I was surprised at its strong smell (very alcoholic) but after a few uses I noticed how well it helped control oil along with the other steps in the Clinique 3-step system :) would purchase again. Definitely wouldn't recommend for those with dry skin though.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
