Is it Worth the Hype: Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel

The Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is designed to clear blemishes instantly and prevent new ones from forming. It contains salicylic acid. You can apply a thin layer over your whole face or use it as a spot treatment. When using it as a spot treatment I was advised to apply it over the whole area of the blemish.

This little guy isn't going anywhere any time soon. A little goes a long way. The product itself is a clear gel that has a cooling effect when you apply it. On sensitive areas of my face it stings a little for about a minute but then it feels fine. It works fast and withing a few days your blemishes are gone. Since it has salicylic acid in it, it can feel drying and make your face feel tight. It works the same way any other acne treatment or clearing gel would work.

If you're looking for one that's affordable I'd say this one is a good one. If you already have products that work well for your skin you don't need this. I go back and forth between this one and my La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. I like them both but I have a personal preference to the La Roche-Posay one. I would say that this little guy is worth the hype because it gets the job done and it's cheaper than La Roche-Posay.

The 0.5oz one is $19 CAD/ $17US. You can find it at any Clinique counter or Sephora.
