I love trying face products especially face washes, and I absolutely love clinique cleanser! Way back when someone gave me a tube of clinique face moisturiser and I absolutely loved it and wanted to try more products by them. My face bounces around depending on the season and what I've done to my face. I hunt and when I do I usually use the greasy camo face paint and that always makes my blackheads I get on my nose area look horrible. I get tiny black heads and they and up soaking up the paint and some face washes don't get the paint off that has gone into my pores. I usually like a exfoliating face wash because I feel like I get a deeper clean and I like the way my face feels after. But climque gives me the same amount of clean and it also cleans deep down into my pores. My face doesn't feel so abused after using this wash like some other ones. My face feels clean and refreshed while being soft and not dried out. I have the most unbalanced skin and this is one cleanser that works well to help with the oily areas of my face and also doesn't leave my face feeling leathery or stiff. I highly recommend all the clinique products. They just plain work and although they are expensive, a little product goes a long way and it works so well that I don't mind paying the extra money to get a cleanser that can handle my combination skin. Anyone who has skin like mine knows how hard it is to find a cleanser that can handle all of the different problem areas of their face. I like the way it works and I like the way my face looks and feels after use and I like how it evens out my face and reduces the red spots too. It never has made me break out like a lot of washes have done to me! Give it a try because it is a great product!
