My question is, are you on the BCP or not? I hope not, because the pill plus smoking plus nearing age 35 (not that you're that close is a really bad combo; my friend just got a blood clot in her brain and believe me you DON'T want this!

Anyway, Clinique is not great for acne according to most derms I've spoken with. Many of their products esp. moisturizers are very acnegenic. Their advertising and makeup counter look very medical, but don't let that fool you. However, that said, their oil-free makeup is probably fine. I would not rely on their acne medications (which I have tried) particularly their toners and their topicals which aren't very strong and have perfumes. I personally have had excellent luck with Azelex and B5 for decreased oil production. Haven't tried spiro yet, but I don't think I have hormonal acne so that's why; also they recommend being on the Pill simultaneously which I don't want to do.

Good luck. I'm 29 too and I'm tired of acne!!
