For years I have used the Clinique facial bar soap as part of my daily skin care routine. I really dislike the mess and inconvenience of bar soap and want to eliminate it entirely from my household. In advance of the latest Clinique Bonus Time at a local department store I searched on Clinique's website for an alternative to the bar soap. I found Clinique Liquid Facial Soap and thought it might be a viable substitute. When I spoke to the representative at the Clinique counter, she told me that the liquid facial soap was essentially the same as the bar soap just in a different formulation. I can't remember how much it costs, though I'm sure it was a little more than the bar soap. The representative advised me that just a small amount would get my face clean. I went with the mild formula since that is what I used in the bar soap. I used it as soon as I got home. I found the pump to be very easy to use, allowing me to dispense just a small amount of soap. In fact, I needed to use two small pumps to get a decent amount of lather. I have been using the liquid facial soap for about two weeks now and have been pleased. Just like the bar soap, it gently cleanses my skin without irritating it. I was so happy to throw the gooey soap dish and the last tiny sliver of bar soap away. Perhaps the bottle of liquid soap won't last as long as the bar soap, but that's a small trade off for my cleaner countertop. Scent No discernible scent, which is a good thing to me.
