What we say:
I have long been a Clinique fan, however I took a break from it a year ago as I had been using it for 3 years and thought my skin needed a break from it. In the year since I stopped using it, I have used several popular skincare brands in various price brackets, yet none of them have worked quite as well as Clinique.

In the last couple of months my skin took a down turn, and rather than the occasional hormone-caused breakout, I was breaking out a lot more often and the blemishes were far worse. For someone who has never had particularly bad skin, I was not happy with the mass breakout on my chin and around my mouth area!

I had read good reviews on the Clinique Anti-Blemish range, and decided to give it a go. Thankfully Clinique offers a Starter Kit for R475, which includes a trial size product of the 3-step system, and is a great way to try the products without investing in full size products.

The cleansing foam has quite a strong medicinal smell, which is something that I am still getting used to. As promised, after 3 days of using the 3-step system, the existing blemishes I had were starting to dry up and no new blemishes had come up.

My skin does feel a bit tight after using the cleansing foam, but once I have used the clarifying toner & the moisturiser, the tightness goes away. A week & a half into using the 3-step cleansing system, and I am super happy with the results. While my skin is slightly drier in places than it usually is, the blemishes are under control and hopefully will disappear altogether (fingers crossed).

If your skin is prone to blemishes, the Clinique Anti-Blemish range is definitely one to consider. While it is pricey, it is definitely worth the splurge.

  1. It comes in a light blue bottle with a pump dispenser that is easy to use. The product feels liquidy in the bottle but it comes out as a foam.

    The foam is very runny and has almost no smell. I like how lightweight it feels, I used this product twice a day I thought that it would burn because of the medicinal properties but it doesn’t even leave a tingly feeling or anything but after I’m done washing my face it feels a little bit tight.

    This is a great product it cleans my face in a very gentle way and even removes acne marks, the only issue I have is that it finishes really fast because with the pump you can really control how much product comes out and if you carry it around in a bag it can spill out.

  3. The reason I like this cleanser is because it is gentle on my skin and does not leave my skin feeling tight. However, sometimes it does feel as though there is not enough foam, as it is not a product that is very thick in consistency.
