Clinique is horrible... i swear i will NEVER use it again.... i used to have really nice clear skin, but i am now on this msg board because of the acne it caused...
I have done some research on it, and asked a few beauticians as to why:
- It has a ph of 9!!! that should give u enough of a reason as to why its so harmful, healthy skin has a ph of 5.5...
- It is FULL of alcohol!!! alcohol is soooo bad for your skin...
- the clarifying lotion (step 2) is the WORST... that was the main reason i originally bought it... coz those damn good sales ppl gave me that sticky tape test on my hand (u put sticky tape on ur hand pull it off and can see all the dead skin cells...) so they want u to exfoliate twice a day with this alcohol filled clarifying lotion... but skin sheds itself once every 28days... and u should only exfoliate once to twice a week... because what cliniques clarifying lotion is doing is stripping all of your skin of its essential oils, and thus ur skin is overproducing oil and sebum to make up for it..... all of my skin got sooooo congested... like when u can see all of those pimples trying to break out from under the surface, and also massive pimples... it was horrible..... i used to use the cheapest & even harmful alcohol products before.. and it was due to clinique... nothing else had changed, not my diet or anything...
and after talking to a few beauticians it made me realise why... its the most unnatural thing u can put on ur skin...
I wish more than anything i never started using it... coz now i do have acne, and am on differin gel, oral antibiotics and on the pill.... its horrible...
Damn clinique....

Hope that helps ;)
