Clinique Clarifying Lotion ♥

Clinique Clarifying Lotion is one of those staple skin care products for me, it is hands down the best 'toner' I have ever used. So when they reformulated it I knew it would only be for the better, I thought I would share with you some info on the new formulation... 

Comfortable Formulas for an Uncomfortable World

If it feels like the world is throwing more at your skin today, it is – more pollution, harsher climates, the rise of allergies and the always-present natural ageing process. These factors can cause skin damage, sensitivity and irritation, impacting skin’s ability to naturally renew itself. As a result, skin can become more sluggish and uneven. To help skin regularly and effectively shed dead skin cells and reveal healthier, cleaner skin, Clinique is introducing new dermatologist reformulated Clarifying Lotion – with special buffering agents to make exfoliation more comfortable in today’s environment. Each gentle sweep clears away pollution, grime and dulling flakes so skin can thrive.

Regardless of skin type or age, healthy skin can be exfoliated twice a day, every day – the key is providing the right strength of exfoliation for each individual’s needs. According to Clinique’s Guiding Dermatologist, Dr. David Orentreich:


“Daily exfoliation improves the appearance and surface function of the skin. The right exfoliation will enhance function and prep skin to receive hydration, resulting in a clearer, smoother, more translucent and even-toned complexion. The new Clarifying Lotion is a gentle daily exfoliator that performs with the same efficacy as my father’s original Clarifying Lotion formula – it has just been modernised for today’s world.”


NEW Dermatologist reformulated Clarifying Lotion is available in four formulas of varying strengths appropriate for very dry to dry, dry combination, combination oily and oily skins. The new formula has been updated with buffering agents including Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Trehalose to make exfoliation more comfortable and help maintain skin’s moisture equilibrium. Graduated levels of Salicylic Acid, a longtime dermatologist staple, are also present to aid in exfoliation by removing dead skin cells, promoting optimal cell turnover. In fact, each Clarifying Lotion has been specially formulated with its own level of Salicylic Acid to ensure optimal, custom-fit exfoliation for each skin type. After each use, pores seem smaller, fine lines less evident and skin tone more even and vibrant looking. 


•Gently remove dry, dead skin cells to reveal a more vibrant and healthy complexion.

•Effectively help skin release the bonds that link dead skin cells to the surface of the skin.

•Clear away the last traces of soap and/or cleanser and prepare skin for moisturiser without disrupting the balance of the skin.

•Remove dirt, oil and residue to impart a refreshing feel.

•Help unclog pores and minimise their appearance.

•Enhance the benefits of moisturisers and other skin treatments.

•Strengthen skin, making it more resistant to environmental impurities and irritants.

For me personally my skin always seems better, brighter and smoother when I am using this in my routine. I've used it for about 2/3 years, I started off No 2 and moved up to No 3, I would strongly recommend you go to a counter and have a chat with one of their consultants before buying as I know from working on the counter how important it is to ensure you are getting the right product for your skin. Too many times did I speak to woman who were using the wrong strength, and it was doing nothing for them, wonder why eh?

Let me know if you use Cliniue 3-step, or if you have any questions about it I'd be more than happy to help!
