Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions 3-Step System
Unfortunately I cant rave about this product
My mum brought me this set for Christmas only in the large sizes and also the spot treatment gel. This was after i had stopped the contraceptive pill and my skin began to be problematic with spots appearing all over my chin and chest, as one spot went another would appear. I am 22 years old and have never suffered from particularly bad skin until now.
I began using the set on Christmas day and am still using it now, so it has been 4 weeks as of today of using it. (22/01/2014). The product does clear my skin of oil and makes it slightly dry, which can be countered by using the moisturizer, however my spots are not improving at all. it does seem to help clear the spots very slightly but as they go new ones form and i'm in exactly the same boat as before :/
I'm really disappointed seeing as my mum spent an awful lot on this product. I understand that there is a short period where you expect skin to get worse before it gets better but this is usually within the first week or two, which doesn't look likely to improve in my case.
I am planning on going to clinique in debenhams next time i'm in town to see what they say about it. however i'm now looking in to dermatalogica products instead.
Overall it has been a disappointment, i'm sad to say.
I have been using the anti blemish 3 step for about a year and a half and I absolutely love it!!!! Its the best purchase I have ever made in regards to skin care. Within about 2 weeks of me first using it I noticed quite a difference in my skin, the redness had went down making my face appear less angry and sore looking and then a short while after that the spots were starting to become barely noticeable. Although when I first starting using it, it did make my skin rather dry and it appeared to get worse before getting better it was only for a short while that this was the case.
I have recommended the 3 step to all my family and friends as I think the amazing results are totally worth the money!!
Has worked great for me!
I wanted something that would clear my skin up. Id been suffering a lot of spots and grease for a few years.
I went to Clinique and they asked me loads of questions about my skin etc. they recommended the anti blemish solutions range so i gave it a go. I use it twice a day but with make up removing sponges. I find this gets the cleanser off and
Makeup off better. I also bought the 'Rinse off foaming cleanser' to use before the step 1 cleanser. This is because i use a thick foundation and i find nothing cuts through it (double wear) but this foaming cleanser is one of the best ive ever used. You only need a 5p sized amount and it completely removes every bit of make up off your face. Ready to use the cleanser step 1 Which is fighting spots and not removing make up. I think this made a difference. And i would say that 1 tube of this would last 1 year. So not bad.
My face actually looks a lot brighter with and without makeup, before it was dull and grey with no makeup on... Love this product.
excellent products from clinique
I have been using the anti blemish solutions 3 steps for nearly a year now, and I wouldn`t use anything else. My skin has always been greasy to combination. On using the products my skin got worse before it got better, but I was told this was to be expected. It is now so much better, with only the occasional breakout, which if I get the odd spot I use the anti blemish gel, which sorts the problem out. Wrould highly recommend. 10 out of 10 Clinique.
I really don't know what to make of this product to be honest, i brought these products in full size bottles and it hasent worked for me at all, the best thing i like about this product is the packaging and how much product you get for the money, the product dried my skin out to the extent it felt tight and uncomfortable and it smells so strong!! what might not work for me might work for others this is just based on how i found the product, im not going to repurchase this product im looking into other skincare.
Excellent results after 1 weeks use
Purchased on behalf of teenage daughter with problematic skin. After 1 week her skin was much improved with a reduction in blemishes.
My skin is blemish free and softer than its ever been ,would'nt use anything else .
Definitely worth a shot!
Now my skin isn't that bad, but I always had a couple of blemishes on my face. I was so hesistant trying Clinique and this 3-step system because of the cost and because 1/100 reviews were negative ones and I didn't want my skin to get any worse. I wanted my skin perfect for the summer, so I decided if I was going to get any help, it'd be from a well reputed brand like Clinique so I bought a trial set and have been using it religously - twice a day - since.
Its been a little less than 2 weeks. I was told to expect break-outs the first two weeks and that was what happened - I didn't get perfect skin the next day. At the moment, my skin isn't perfect, there are still a few bumps, but its the best my skin has been all year and I know its only going to get better. Blemishes that do appear are quickly dried out leaving no scar and well, I pretty much have a clear face! I'm so happy! I feel like I'm doing my skin a good thing each time I use this product as after each wash my skin does feel refreshed and clean. Although as much as I love gushing about this system, I must admit, the cleanser and toner particularly smell quite harsh/chemically but that is probably because I'm not used to using unscented products - and well that is a very small price to pay for how nice my skin is now! There are no huge pimples on my face and none that are forming and I can't remember the last time I didn't have a huge zit dominating my forehead or chin area. If you're looking for a product that works, then try Clinique. I suggest going onto the website and doing the skin-quiz they offer because there may be other products more suited to your skin and you before you invest in this one. My trial set is near ending and I know that I'm definitely going to get the real deal now.
I also wanted to say - it is important that if you only get one product from this set, that you still do the other steps. If you cleanse, you must tone and moisturise etcetcetc solely doing only one or two of the steps might not give you the results you want. Also doing the system twice a day is important and not overdoing it - swipe the toner around the face once only otherwise it will dry out your skin, and you only need a small amount of moisituriser! A small dollop will do the job! Just important to do what the instructions tell you to do otherwise you might be doing your skin more bad than good!
Hope this review helped, and good luck :)
