this is so good at controlling my oil during the day, its cooling without stinging or being minty, and its drying enough for oily skin that im not covered in my own grease but im also not cracking and puffing dust. I use this after each time I clean my face before any other products because it just feels like it lays a nice base for my skin. Sometimes over the course of the day if my skin is feeling gross or dull I will also just swipe this along with a cotton round, and its like a little refresher. Absolutely amazing toner!

Great for oily skin, but also good for clearing acne. It has a strong scent, and if you get too much on your cotton pad the scent can sting your eyes. Otherwise, if used as directed, it is a fantastic toner and exfoliator, as well as acne treatment for oily skin.

Review for: Clarifying Lotion 4 13.5 oz more...
I will always and forever go back to this toner! The number 4 is for a very oily skin the number one is for dry ,number two is for dry combination and three is oil combination. I have been using it for so long that I bump it up every three years .When used with a Cotton ball it really gets everything off your face. You can see all the excess dead skin and dirt that was left over from washing your face. I know people don't understand that there is so many different forms of alcohol and they just assume that this one is filled with rubbing alcohol (which is not the case) this is actually good for your skin and really exfoliates and cleans your skin

I’ve been using this product for a few years now and it truly has helped with my oily skin. Being a 4 at Clinique means that you have extremely oily skin, which I do. This helps before in the morning when the oil has sprung on my face overnight and I need to feel clean and refreshed without feeling stripped. One large of this will last me about 8-10 months so the higher price tag is more than worth it.

Where to start... I have oily skin, but when I came to this brand I was battling stress induced adult acne flare up also. I started with the acne solutions line, which I still mostly use and love. But even with that, my skin is still oiler than I'd like and I have a few cc's from my debacle that just won't go away. I wanted to up the salicylic acid game, and was even considering the nuclear option (stridex red box). Enter this toner. I have switched to it temporarily. I'm not sure it's helping with oil more than the other, but I've only used it almost 3 weeks now so we'll see. What I have noticed is that my stubborn CC's are finally moving up and out. They're not all gone, but I'm actually seeing improvement. This toner hasn't dried me out either, which is awesome. If you're on the fence get a sample size. It's worth it.

I have very oily, acne prone skin with large pores. When I say this product changed my life I mean it CHANGED my life. It’s not that expensive for how much you get either. I especially love that there are multiple sizes. It’s lasted me about 5 months and I’m only half way through, I have the medium size and it has worked real miracles for my skin. It IS pretty drying so I do recommend a moisturizer with this toner but overall it is my holy grail toner. I use it twice a day and it feels very fresh on the skin. I love Clinique skin care.

This toner is so refreshing. I use this twice a day and it helps control my oily t-zone. I think it's a good value for the amount that you get. I purchased mine from Ulta Beauty and would definitely repurchase and recommend it to others who have oily skin.

I’ve been using this for years. I have pretty oily skin and this works great for me. After exfoliating my face every morning, I apply this and, once my face is dry, I apply my moisturizer. This is part of Clinique’s “process” for facial cleansing but i only use the clarifying lotion; the other items didn’t work well for me. I branched out and tried other toners and astringents and I definitely noticed a negative difference in my skin. I immediately went back to this and don’t plan on changing.

I like this product and it makes my skin look more uniform, but I do not like the packaging, for a more expensive brand, I would prefer more effort put into the delivery system, either a pump or smaller opening, I ended up spilling more often than not. But besides that, I recommend

Am I the only one who didn't see results after using this product (and others in the three step system)?

Does this work just as good if you use your fingers and massage it into the skin? They say apply it using cotton balls but I don’t have cotton balls at the moment lol
