  • "Perfect for sensitive skin! Never feels my face feeling dry or oily so it's perfect for my combination skin! It's a little pricey but worth it if you have sensitive skin and are prone to breaks outs! " in 12 reviews

Review for: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap-Oily Skin 13.5 oz., oily more...
I’ve used the little sample of the regular version of this soap and I absolutely loved it! It made my skin feel clean and happy. When I had the chance I picked up this oily formula since most of my skin is oily. I’ve had a few different struggles with it, some not because of the product itself. First, this DOES NOT work well for any combination skin types. It horribly drys out any dry spots. That would be fine, except it somehow worsens dry patches yet does nothing to help the oily spots. I’m as oily as always. Also, this doesn’t lather like the original formula, so I feel like I use more product. It’s pretty expensive for a cleanser in my honest opinion so I dislike that. It also has a strange scent that I don’t remember from the other formula. Maybe this will work with someone with a different skin type, it’s possible it just doesn’t work for me. I also recommend not using this with a Clarisonic or anything similar since the it doesn’t lather or foam it just sticks to the brush. Three stars because some problems could be a ‘me’ thing and I know a lot of people love this, so it cannot be all bad!

Review for: CLINIQUE Liquid Facial Soap Oily (Tube) 5 oz more...
I. LOVE. THIS. SOAP. I have super oily skin, and I've tried so many face washes.. nothing gets my skin as clear as this does! I would always use a face wash and then use a toner or a wash cloth or whatever and there would always be residual... THIS stuff takes it all off and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and amazing. I always suffer from breakouts but since I have switched to this product my skin has drastically improved. I got a jumbo size in a skin care set for $50 at Macy's.. the jumbo has lasted me nearly 3 months so far! Totally worth the price!

Review for: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild 6.7 oz more...
This is a wonderful daily face wash. I love that it suds up easily and rinses clean without making my skin feel tight and dry! I know you are supposed to use this as step 1 in conjunction with other Clinique products, but I used it alone and it worked great for me! The only thing I can think that they could improve would be the scent, which has sort of a stale cardboard scent. I love that it makes my face feel super clean and soft!

This is my favorite facial cleanser!!! I discovered Clinique after I had my child. My skin had changed, and I was looking for a consistent skincare line to take care of my normal/dry skin. It cleans my skin very well without leaving it stripped. I used just the soap one day and my skin didn’t get tight. I was completely surprised...that never happens! It doesn’t have a scent and it doesn’t have anything harsh. My skin is very sensitive so I was happy to find products that didn’t irritate my skin. After about a week of using this product along with the Clarifying Lotion (2) and the Moisturizer I noticed my skin had a healthy glow. I always get compliments on my skin and people ask about the makeup I’m wearing...even when I’m not wearing any!

Review for: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap - Mild 13.5 oz. more...
This facial soap is refreshing and cleansing . It is mild so it doesn’t irritate the skin and it’s also gentle as can be . I started using this months ago noticed clearer , virbrant skin . Perfect for those who wear makeup and want to do a cleanse after makeup wear . I usually pair it with my facial brush for this task . Smell is light like a facial soap I’ve had from the derm before . Overall good product . Love Clinique facial products !!

Review for: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap-Oily Skin 13.5 oz. more...
I have noticed a HUGE difference in my oily skin after using this as part of the 3 step routine for oily skin. This is a holy grail product for me. I use it twice a day - especially before putting on any makeup and I swear by it. The cleanser is gentle enough not to irritate skin but helps take off any left over makeup. My skin is less oily and much more even after using this. It is expensive, but it is so worth the money.

So I loveeeeeee this face soap omg. Im on my 4th Clinique step system kit and I changed out my foaming Sonic facial soap for the liquid facial soap (mild) and I love it so much more. It takes off all of my makeup (even water proof and eyelash glue) I can't believe I didn't switch sooner. A little goes a long ways so don't go crazy on it and I suggest getting white microfiber face towels for when removing your makeup!

Review for: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild 6.7 oz more...
Even though this cleanser does the job of cleaning your face, I was very disappointed with this product. I bought this cleanser at Macys and it's not super expensive for a cleanser. This has to be one of the most drying cleansers that I've ever used. I didn't like the way my skin felt afterwards and it did nothing for the look of my skin. I wouldn't recommend this product. There are way better cleansers out there.

Review for: CLINIQUE Liquid Facial Soap Mild (Tube) 5 oz more...
I think I received this product "free with purchase" from Ulta. I am combo oily but I like to use a more gentle cleanser in the mornings since my skin is not really dirty an I don't want to dry my skin too much. I use my acne/ strong cleansers at night. I have no complaints with this product: gentle and fragrance free, good cleanser. However, this is targeted towards dry skins and I thought this cleanser wasn't particularly hydrating. I have used another cleanser which I thought was much better in that sense: "La roche posay toleraine hydrating cleanser." I don't think I'd repurchase this clinique cleanser but I will happy to get and use it in any kits I might get in the future.

I received this and Clinique 3 Steps System Dry Combination Skincare Set as a gift and oh my gosh! I am OBSESSED! Although I didn’t pay for it, when I run out of these products, I will definitely be re-stocking. The cleanser makes my face feel so soft, then the exfoliator allows the skin to accept the moisturizer and my face feels so soft afterwards! 10/10!

In your opinion does the liquid soap works the same as the bar soap? My mom prefers the bar soap, she says it works better.
