What we say:
The last product in the 3-step cleansing system is the Anti-Blemish Solutions All-Over Clearing Treatment, which is an oil-free moisturiser. This is the product that I was most cautious of as I am quite particular with the moisturisers that I use.

As the products in this range are designed to fight blemishes, they are naturally very drying, and I was concerned that the Clearing Treatment wouldn’t provide me with enough moisture to counteract dryness. Thankfully, my concerns have cleared, along with my unwanted blemishes!

The moisturiser is a very lightweight formula which absorbs instantly to refresh the skin and soothe any tightness caused by the foaming cleanser. The smell is slightly off putting as it does smell a bit medicinal, but if it works (which it has so far), it is something I’ll just have to get used to.

I usually have very oily skin, but after a week & a half of using the Anti-Blemish 3-step cleansing system, my skin seems to be more combination than oily. I have some dry skin patches that the moisturiser hasn’t quite hydrated enough, but I’m able to target those areas with a slightly richer moisturiser.

All in all, I have been very impressed with this 3-step cleansing system. It isn’t half as drying as I thought it might be, and it has really helped to clear unwanted blemishes. My skin is started to look a little less red in the cheek area which is an added bonus! If you suffer from oily skin and blemishes, I would recommend these products as a possible solution – while it might not work for everyone, it has certainly helped my skin!

  1. I have experienced the growing pains of acne from an early age. I used every product that was on the market at the time and nothing seemed to help. It was after visiting the dermatologist as a last resort that my face and back seemed to get better.

    To say the least, after two years the problem persisted even further in my teen years. I had accepted that there was no cure for acne and my face would stay the way it was for the rest of my life.

    Fast forward to when I started my first job in 2013 and decided to spoil myself and try the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions. After two weeks of using the full range which included the clearing treatment, my spots started faded, no new pimples were forming and my complexion was becoming clearer.

    I have never looked back! This product is light and non-greasy. It doesn’t matte my face especially on days that I feel like wearing make-up. The bottle lasts me two months when I use it both night and day.

    Thanks to the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions All-Over Clearing Treatment for restoring my confidence and self-esteem.

  2. The packaging is simple, it comes in a squeeze blue tube with a white lid. The moisturiser is white in colour but becomes clear on my skin. The consistency is a little bit runny but the product is not greasy and gets absorbed easily into my skin without leaving any residue and moisturizes my skin well. It has no smell to it but it does a decent job of moisturizing my skin.

    I used it two times a day and saw some good results but it did nothing for my blemishes. Not that it’s not a great product but it just did nothing to help with my blemishes so I wouldn’t recommend this for someone who is trying to get rid of acne or blemishes.

    I wouldn’t call it ineffective because it’s a good lotion for people with acne-prone skin, but it also isn’t a miracle product by any means.

  3. I liked using the anti blemish solutions because I have a problem with acne scars. With persistence they do disappear.
