New to Clinique's very good Acne Solutions line is Clinical Clearing Gel.
Years ago they had an Acne Spot Healing Gel that seems similar . I used it a lot and it was one of my favorites at the time. I also have great love for the line's Acne Solutions Foundation.
The new Clinical Clearing Gel has 1 % salicylic acid to exfoliate and reduce oil, laminaria saccharina for oil control while sea whip extract calms and reduces redness. Water and alcohol are in there along with witch hazel water. It can be used all over or as a spot treat or all over when applied thinly, I use salicylic acid products a lot , and thus far have found this to be gentle on skin , non irritating , non drying.
Clinique says that over a 12 week study, this proved to be as effective as a leading topical prescription acne drug.
Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is $ 17 for 15 ml, $ 25 for 30ml.
