Perfect for my oily skin! It absorbs really quickly into the skin so it doesn’t leave a stickiness that toner sometimes can leave. By far the best one I’ve tried

Much better of a lotion than the traditional yellow one that you see everywhere. That one left my face feeling greasy, so this one is an awesome alternative.

I have tried many toners on my skin that are drugstore brand. However, I got a sample of this, and I fell in love. So I ended up going out and buying a large bottle of it. It makes my face get a very clean feeling after use. I do not use the Clinique cleanser but I use a Clarisonic with this product paired with the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Its a match made in heaven.

This product keeps the oil at bay. The first ever product to work for me. It also has a nice exfoliating property to it as well. I always purchase at Ulta so I can get my points.

This clarifying lotion is not really a lotion, it is more like your typical astringent. Formula 4 is for oily skin. The product has a great scent and does a good job of removing excess oil and dirt from my face, but not causing my skin to dry out. It works well with the entire Clinique line, but works just as well if you want to use it in combination with other cleansers and moisturizers. The product is an asset in my skincare regimen.

It’s ok I haven’t seen the effects yet. This is my first time using this toner. I bought it at It’s high in price. It’s very gentle maybe to gentle. I don’t know if I would recommend it just yet. We’ll see

I have been using the Clinique 3-Step set off and on for a few years. It's very simple and gentle on the skin, but it wasn't anything special for me. The toner is a little harsh at first if your not used to it or have sensitive skin. The smell isn't over powering and it does it's job. It makes your skin feel great. It's pretty basic, but if you're looking for a simple toner without a bunch of harsh ingredients -- this is for you.

I had avoided this for years and never gave into the hype,I finally figured what the heck might as well. I have extremely oily skin and chose option 4 for oily skin. :0/ nothing really bad happened but absolutely nothing good happened either. I did not notice it make any improvement to my skin at all nor did it help with the oil. If anything I think if anything I was a more oily. For the price I would not buy this again, it did nothing. I might as well have just skipped toner altogether.

I have very oily skin and so I bought the facial cleansing kit in this product and I love it. It makes my face feel clean and removes any oil or dirt that causes a discomfort. I buy this regularly.

I use this stuff every day with my other Clinique face care products. It really does it's job but you have to keep up with it consistently which is something I have a hard time doing, lol. I really like it. It does help a lot with my face and I would recommend this to anyone who has felt like they've tried every thing on the shelf and can't seem to get a clear face. Because that's what happened to me and as soon as I tried this, my face started to clear up in a matter of days!

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
