The toner is good for all the skin type but it costs high. But apart from that the formula used in the toner is very good and effective. It helps in better radiance and removing the patches from the skin and also nourishes the skin to reduce any future problems for uneven tone

PROS

Cleanses deeply


If you've tried or heard of Clinique 3-step kit for dry combination skin, then you'd know about this product. Clinique Clarifying Lotion is a toner which has to be used after the cleanser and followed by the Dramatically Different Moisturizer. This toner deeply cleans the pores and exfoliates the skin. You can notice significant changes in the skin after using it if you have acne-prone combination skin like mine. It comes in a screw cap bottle with an orifice. All you have to do is dab some cotton in the clarifying lotion and wipe off the impurities from the skin. It has a strong smell as it has alcohol as one of the main ingredients. I am not happy with the fact that it has alcohol and that's the reason I took away 2-stars from the rating. However, talking about the good things it does, it helps to keep oil at bay and the skin feels glowy. It is a great toner that comes with a greater price tag too! But if your troubled-skin needs help, this is a highly recommended product.

The Clinique Clarifying Lotion is a part of a three step customized skin care regime. This is a best suited for Dry-combination skin type. Developed with dermatologists, tested for allergy – a good exfoliator that helps clearing out the skin of dust and excessive oil, making your skin appear refreshed. With regular use the Clinique Clarifying Lotion claims to reduce fine line disappear. The packaging is super cool. I love the frosted bottle with a green cap. The mouth of the bottle however is a little big so you need to be a bit careful while taking the lotion onto the cotton ball so that there is no spillage. I managed to spill quite a lot first time around when I tipped the bottle! Although Clinique Clarifying Lotion works amazingly well on the skin, the drawback is the intense smell of alcohol that really puts me off. I rather use this occasionally than regularly merely because of the strong alcohol fragrance. Yes there is a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin – I have noticed lightening of my acne scars, my pores seem to have shrunk a bit and I do notice that my skin feels a lot radiant than what it used to before. I guess this product works amazingly when combined with the three step regime than using it on its own. It works best that way. Except for the fragrance I give Clinique Clarifying Lotion an A for its effectiveness in improving the texture of my skin! It is a definite recommendation to all my friends with dry-combination skin.

PROS

cleanse deeply

Visible difference

effective


The basic three step process that is acceptable as the best skin care regimen is cleansing, exfoliation and moisturization. It comes in a transparent bluish bottle. The pack is not at all travel friendly and as it may spill while taking it for use. You need to choose the right time as per your schedule to follow this skin care regimen. Take a cotton ball and put a little quantity of Clinique Clarifying Lotion on it. Rub gently, allow it to work. As it have exfoliation properties and contains buffering agents, you may feel a little tickling sensation on your face after its application. But that's just a proof of its deep action. It actually shrinks the size of pores and obviously gives visible cleaning effects from the every first use. After a through use just wipe it off with a wet cotton cloth or wash with plain water. If you really want to get visible effects then folloe the three step skin care regimen by Clinique. Its pretty awesoem. I don't like the medicinal smell of this product, it may be because of alcohol content. The skin feels dry after its application thus you need to moisturize your skin and that's why you should follow the three step process. It may not suit the dry skin. because I have a mixed type of skin, it suited me well. It shows a positive effect on tanned skin as well. I would definitely suggest Clinique Clarifying Lotion to especially those who are under a lot of wear and having oily or mixed skin. You just take a trial if your skin is dry and decide. The price is too much, including the other two products your skin care regimen will cost you gross. Apart from that, I found it good and effective.

After cleaning face with clarifying balm, you need to apply this water all over your face help of cotton pads. This mild exfoliating water gently exfoliates the skin and removes dirt, oil grime and dry skin flakes out of face. It makes the skin instantly soft and supple and prepare skin for the moisturisation. It helps in reducing fine lines as well.

Gentle exfoliating formula


My skin is dry - mix during summers. Generally, it is dry just however on sweltering summer days, my T Zone will, in general, get somewhat slick. Clinique arranges the skin type into 4 types Very Dry,Dry-Combination, Combination-Oily, Very Oily. I by and large don't utilize toners since they make my skin excessively dry. I utilize rose water which fills in as a gentle toner. I was a little doubtful about utilizing this one yet amazingly, it works extraordinary. It is a liquor based toner so I keep my eyes shut for a couple of moments subsequent to applying it or else my eyes sting. It works incredibly in expelling the dead skin cells, lessening the size of the pores and it leaves your skin feeling new and clean. My general involvement with Clinique Three Step Skin care routine has been great. I don't have a hazardous skin so there is no radical distinction that I have found in my skin. I generally do my three stage healthy skin routine two times every day generally too. The monetary pack (125 ml) is for Rs 4630 and the ordinary pack is for Rs 3480 ( Cleanser-200 ml, Clarifying salve 120 ml, lotion 50 ml). With regards to healthy skin items I like to have progressively prudent ranges so I can utilize the items liberally and as per my needs. I may buy the Clarifying salve on the grounds that out of the three that is the one I discovered excellent and it worked really well for my skin. I might simply want to make reference to that the Clarifying Lotion is liquor based so it probably won't suit everybody. Infact, it may respond severely on certain individuals. I am exceptionally upbeat that Clinique has the strategy of giving endlessly the example items. Atleast we can make sure of what suits our skin and so forth.

PROS

1. Gives Matte look

2. Cleans pores

3. Control oil

4. Reduce breakouts


My skin is oily and hence is prone to many skin concerns like acne, blackheads, pigmentation, etc. So any random trial where the ingredients are not of quality, my skin gets bad reaction leading to breakouts and rashes. Thus I always advocate for products that are dermatologically tested. One must use only such products as much possible depending upon the affordability and availability. So Clinique is one such brand that has a variety of skincare and makeup products which are dermatologically tested. This is one of the reasons that the cost of Clinique products will always be high range. So one of the skincare products that I got to try is - Clinique Clarifying Lotion. This I had received as a gift from an acquaintance. It is a 200 ml bottle that came for me for almost a month and hence I was able to feel its effects over time. And to be honest, I liked the product but then I cannot say that it is exceptional. The product is a clarifying lotion and hence it is claimed to sweep away dust & dirt to give clear brighter skin which it does but then the difference that it gives to skin is not extreme. I agree that after using this I felt my breakouts and oiliness reduce but then it does not work much on pigmentation or acne marks which already are there on the face. Coming to the fragrance, it has a fragrance that smells more of alcohol. So while cleaning the face with this lotion, it feels as if we are rubbing alcohol on the face. But then this is something which is a point to manage when the product manages to give a matte look to skin after wash which certainly means that it works on pores. To look in a way, the product is good for people with oily skin as it helps in controlling oil and thus helps in controlling breakouts. It also works on pores and that’s how it manages to give matte look. The price though is a concern and hence adding this to a daily routine is something which needs thinking.

clinique clarifying lotion 2 is the second step in the three step cleansing regime by clinique. it contains of customised product created and recommended by the dermatologist according to different skin types. step 1 is cleansing, step 2 is exfoliating and step 3 is moisturising. I am here to review the step 2 clarifying lotion. it claims to remove the dry and dead skin and also removes any traces of pollution dirt and grime. it comes in a translucent bottle with a green screw cap. if the bottle is tilted ,it actually spills a bit in the cap, creating a mess on opening. hence it is not very travel friendly. it contains alcohol which is not considered good for the skin in the long run as it makes skin dry and disturbs its natural pH level. also has a very strong smell similar to that of a spirit or a nail polish remover, which is actually very irritating. one does refreshed on applying this lotion acid gives a mild cooling sensation on the face. it acts as a good exfoliator and does remove the dead skin and gives a glow to the skin. however with regular usage of 3-4 days I started breaking out. maybe it has to do something with the fact that I have very oily skin and i feel this product is best suited for someone with normal to combination skin.

This clarifying lotion No. 2 is basically for dry to combination skin type. My sister who has dry skin used this product for a good 3 months. The product is good and as the name implies it cleans the skin deeply even after washing face. Yes, even after the face wash if you gently rub this clarifying lotion through a dabbed cotton ball, you will find some dirt on the cotton ball. With its continuous use, my sister’s dry facial skin has started looking more even with no visible tan. This product is a bit expensive, but it gives the desired result in terms of clarifying. However, this product is not effective at all for clogged pores or for treating acne. Overall, this product is good but expensive.

One must follow a skin-care ritual of cleansing, toning and moisturizing every day. These three steps make sure that your skin remains healthy. Hence I follow this routine for the last few years. Getting the best quality of these three steps is extremely important. So I trust the renowned brand Clinique. And the product Clinique Clarifying Lotion is the second step of this popularly known skin pampering ritual of cleansing toning and moisturizing. I have been using for the past few years and can say I never faced any kind of issues as I have combination skin. It may or may not suit the oily skin type but definitely goes perfectly for dry and combination skin type. Luckily my skin is not acne-prone. Hence I do not have that open pores issues. But still using Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 helped me achieve my desired skin and minimize the smallest pores which helped me to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads. It makes skin soft and supple and does not clog the pores. It simply Swings away dirt, dust, pollution, deadening flakes to divulge smoother, richer skin. It contains extremely safe ingredients like water, glycerine, and menthol etc. Whereas it is completely free from SLS, Parabens, and other many harmful chemicals that are present in other toners in the market. Looking at the safe ingredients list, I give my upper hand to any of Clinique products. They are the best at the quality and safety parameters. All the Clinique products are a bit expensive. But buying one premium product is much better than buying ten random and cheap products which can do no good to your skin but can harm in in every manner. Overall a great product which is a luxury and gives 100% results when used for all three steps of the skincare regimen of Cleansing, toning and moisturizing. Clinique Clarifying Lotion s a must have beauty product in my skin-care régime.

Reduces Blemishes

Gives a Glow to the Face


This is an excellent product for the skin. I have an extremely sensitive skin but decided to try this product and honestly was happy with the purchase. I felt it was a great product for the price I paid. I generally wash my face with lukewarm water, pat it dry and then use the lotion. It gives a nice glow to the face after a continuous long time of usage. It also helped me with the breakouts and prevented them. The best part is, I felt that my existing blemishes have reduced on the face to a great extent. I would surely recommend this product to all.

Clears Dead cells


The product comes in a transparent bottle with a green screw type cap. The product is pink in color with a liquid consistency. It has a strong smell which fades away in a while. It is not gentle on skin and you could use a moisturizer to give a soothing effect after using the product. It is a toner which should be used after washing and patting your face dry. When I used it once I just loved the product and immediately order one for me . Clinique Clarifying lotion Step 2 is the 2nd step to be followed after the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Extra Mild in the Clinique Customised Skin care Routine. The lotion works best when poured on a cotton ball and swiped across the face and neck to clean it thoroughly. It greatly helps in cleaning clogged pores and therefore reduces acne to a great extent. After using it for over a week, I really noticed a difference in my skin. The light acne and pimple marks were gone and my skin looks very clean and fresh. The lotion doesn’t leave the skin dry after using which I thought due to its alcohol content. Not only that, it effectively shrinks skin pores which is one of the most amazing thing that I liked about it. Even if you use it after a face wash, you will see a few dirt particles on the cotton ball. It makes the skin feel alive and rejuvenated. This lotion gently exfoliates your skin and opens the pores while cleaning it from inside so as to remove any possible dirt particle. It completely helps in removing any dry flakes or dead cells in your skin making face looks more with an even skin tone. Clinique Clarifying Lotion is basically used to cleanse your skin from inside making it ready for moisturization. The dirt pollutants hidden inside your face makes it impossible for the moisturizer to even go inside the skin and hence even after the application of good branded moisturizers you fail to see the results. The dead skin is off your face after some uses. The dead skin comes of your skin after one wipe. You can see the pores disappearing slowly. The skin looks and feels softer and smoother. I would recommend users to use the 3 step process and just not skip it as you can see the difference in your skin. The fragrance is not the selling point for sure. But then it does its job. In fact does it really well. I would use it daily until I see the skin was settling in to the creams. You need the set of process to do its work. Things don’t work immediately on any one.

Clinique Is a customized three step skin care routine . The product was created by a dermatologist which gives the customer an extra confidence to try it without any hesitation . It's a very simple three step process to follow daily for maintaining a beautiful and healthy skin which is not time consuming. I tried it in my best friends house for the first time and absolutely loved the way it treated my skin . My friend who has a combination skin, said she could see an amazing difference with regular use of Clinique customized product . When I used it once I just loved the product and immediately order one for me . Clinique Clarifying lotion Step 2 is the 2nd step to be followed after the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Extra Mild in the Clinique Customised Skin care Routine. The Clarifying lotion comes in a bottle with a green cap and a wide mouth which makes messy each time I use it . Many chance are there to spill so always be careful while you open this lotion . It has a light lavender colour and the smell is too strong unlike the Facial soap . I generally use a cotton to wipe it around my face and neck , it gives a refreshing feel and treats well on removing the dead cells and also helps in reducing fine lines . It does not make skin too dry nor very oily . It's just gives the skin right texture . My skins feels lighter and clear and more alive.Though the Step 1 clarifying face soap deeply cleanses this manages to trap the extra dreg of impurities making the skin ready for the next step . Its very costly, but the product is worth the money we spent . Only few drops is necessary each time and single bottle comes for more than a month . A wonderful product to get rid of dead cells and treat the dry skin the right way!!

The country is getting polluted at an alarming rate now a days and there is absolutely no solution to bring it under control. The dust fumes and dirt in the atmosphere plays a vital role in spoiling your skin. And hence a good Cleanser is a need of the hour. I was desperately looking for one since a long period of time and after doing much research work my search ended on Clinique Clarifying Lotion. This brand absolutely needs no introduction as such and the clarifying lotion what they have in the market is a true saviour for people like me who are much concerned about several skin issues. This Clinique Clarifying Lotion’s formula removes any traces of pollution and dirt on the skin of your face making you look more flawless than ever. My face used to look so dull in spite of using various good brand face washes and I was truly not happy with any of their results. How ever trust me this clarifying agent has done wonders to my skin. Because of much pollutants in the atmosphere my skin used to look uneven with dark patches all over the face. This lotion gently exfoliates your skin and opens the pores while cleaning it from inside so as to remove any possible dirt particle. It completely helps in removing any dry flakes or dead cells in your skin making face looks more with an even skin tone. Clinique Clarifying Lotion is basically used to cleanse your skin from inside making it ready for moisturization. The dirt pollutants hidden inside your face makes it impossible for the moisturizer to even go inside the skin and hence even after the application of good branded moisturizers you fail to see the results. Exfoliating with this lotion twice daily removes dead skin flakes that might be preventing moisture absorption. It also helps in reducing wrinkles and fine lines to a certain extent.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion comes in a translucent frosted bottle with jade green cap. It has a wide mouth which is not too good. The product being a liquid often gets spilled while pouring on a cotton ball. It is not at all travel friendly. Clinique Clarifying Lotion No. 2 is for dry to combination skin. It helps in keeping the skin clean and fresh. It easily takes away dirt, dust and pollutants from the skin. It helps in disappearing fine dry lines. This one has a very strong smell of alcohol which is something I did not like about it for sure. However, I did like the cool effect that it gives after using. The lotion works best when poured on a cotton ball and swiped across the face and neck to clean it thoroughly. It greatly helps in cleaning clogged pores and therefore reduces acne to a great extent.

It comes in three sizes, so I would say that you try it out with the smallest bottle and continue its use only if you like it. For me this product is really worth buying and would have been a lot better if it doesn’t have that odour of alcohol. For me that part is a big put off.

Feels clean

Removes excess oil

Removes dead skin cells

Doesn't dry skin out


I used to use this product in the 3-step kit and it was definitely cleansing and worked so well with the other 2 products. I felt like it left my skin feeling clean and hydrated. It also removed the excess oil and gave my skin a matte finish. However I will admit that it does burn my skin at times but I assume that's due to different skin types and the alcohol may make your eyes water a little. The alcohol smell may also be overwhelming but when you put the moisturizer over it masks the smell. Overall a good product and does do a very good job as a toner and leaves your skin feeling fresh.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 is the step 2 to the very famous skin care range of treatment for the skin. This is one of those products that needs no review and introduction. Go by what the dermatologist has asked you to. This one will not disappoint you. Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 is tested, recommended and suggested by the dermatologist. It is tested for all allergies and is allergy proof, has no fragrance but does have a strong chemical smell. I suppose they do have alcohol in it!! It is Paraben free and phthalate free. That’s a good one. But then the smell is a major turn off. They claim it is suitable for all skin types but then I felt after using it its best used for dry or flaky skin. Oily skin I am not sure if it would do enough said and done justice. For the dry skin after usage the skin gets more dry leaving the want of applying more moisturizer. The dead skin is off your face after some uses. The dead skin comes of your skin after one wipe. You can see the pores disappearing slowly. The skin looks and feels softer and smoother. I would recommend users to use the 3 step process and just not skip it as you can see the difference in your skin. The fragrance is not the selling point for sure. But then it does its job. In fact does it really well. I would use it daily until I see the skin was settling in to the creams. You need the set of process to do its work. Things don’t work immediately on any one. You need your skin to breathe in the product. Wait for the magic and then decide if its best for you or not. Do not judge any product with just a few uses. Complete the course.
