As I've stated elsewhere I was excited by Clinique's Acne Solutions line as I have been dealing with acne my entire adult life. Clinique's first attempt at a bar soap that targeted acne was, in my opinion, a disaster. It was insanely drying, even to my very oily skin, such that my skin was flaking. Putting on foundation after washing was not easy. So when the company came out with more products in the line I was a bit leary. But the sales staff assured me that the line had been completely re-worked, so I gave it a try. I have to say that I am very glad that I tried the foaming cleanser in particular. 

This foaming cleanser is both effective in fighting acne and is sufficiently gentle on my sensitive skin. Being too harsh is a common problem in the acne treatment field of products, so I am very pleased that Clinique has avoided that pitfall here. I particularly love how easy it is to *rinse*! It just makes the process go by so much quicker. Granted the foam does not build up much of a lather, but I'm not concerned with that. In fact, from things I've heard, I believe that the ingredients that would make it lather more would also make it more harsh - and I certainly don't want that!

My only substaintial complaint is that it does get used up very quickly. Personally, I go through three or four bottles of the foaming cleanser in the same amount of time that I go through one bottle of Clinique's Clarifying Lotion. I do wish Clinique would offer different bottle sizes, like they do with their regular liquid cleansers, but they only offer one medium size. I'd happily buy a bigger one if it were available.

 

Of course, being Clinique, it costs a good deal more than something you would buy in a drug store. But Clinique is also one of the more affordable department store brands, so it's all a matter of persepective.

For the most part, I have very good skin.  However, I do break out every once and awhile.  In order to keep my skin in a healthy state, I have to use a product that not only clears break outs, but helps to prevent them.

A friend of mine suggested this product; she said it worked for her.  Maybe it was just me, but I wasn't digging it.  First off, it is rather expensive.  Now that would be fine if the product worked well, but it doesn't.

It does clean your skin, but it doesn't help with acne at all.  I still broke out while using this product. 

I do have very sensitive skin, so a positive thing about this product is that it is gentle.  My skin did not peel, crack, or even itch during or even after use.  Furthermore, the product does have a scent, but it isn't too strong and it actually rather pleasant.

Overall, the product made my skin feel clean, but did not keep it clear.  Maybe it would have better results for people with consistent acne, which is what my friend (the one whom recommended the product to me) has.

Great face wash

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I recently purchased this cleansing foam from Clinique and I am pleased so far with the results.  I love the fact that is in a pump form so I don't have to worry about squeezing a bottle and making a mess.  I have not had any breakouts since using it and it goes on gently and makes a nice foam to clean with. You do not have to use very much at all in order to work up a great cleaning foam. My only complaint is that it is fragrance free, which a lot of people prefer, but I do like a nice clean smell to my face wash. The price is a little pricey but I have had my face wash for a few weeks and haven't used very much out of the bottle yet so I think that a little goes a long way and you will definitely get your moneys worth because it will indeed last a long time.  I would most certainly recommend the Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam to anyone who has an acne problem that needs a simple yet effective wash for their face.

Clinique Acne Cleansing Foam Review

By 

from Fostoria, OH

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I love this foam because when you apply it, you can feel it start to work. It's gentle and good for sensitive skin. I'd reccommend getting the whole set of 3 if you want to clear up the acne. I have used it and it works well.l You just have to keep using it everyday.

Love Love Love Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

By 

from Tuscumbia, AL

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I have tried so many different skin treatments and none of them have worked for me.Someone suggested that I try the product and i did,I couldn't have had a better result.I've never really had bad skin but it enhanced it and really made it flawIess I really do like this cleansing foam. It's super light and feels good on my skin. Even better than feeling great though is that it actually works. I'm using the whole 3-step for acne and together the pieces really have helped get me clear. The only thing I don't like about this product it that it says that it's also to remove makeup but really doesn't do the trick for me. I guess I just need something a little more heavy duty."i have to say that I took a risk using this because I never spend this much on face wash. But I'm glad I did because it's the only thing that has worked for my skin! I love it.I have had to go from using it twice a day to once a day since it was lind of drying drying my skin but I think I may go back up to twice a day.

Brand name decent

By 

from Davis, CA

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

There are many products out there that simply sell regardless of their performance. People will buy it no matter what because of the brand it carries and this Clinique cleansing foam is definitely one of them. everytime I stop by the mall and walk through the beauty section I always manage to spot a few customers purchasing a few of these cleansers. The thing I like most about the cleanser is the fact that it is foaming and slightly gentle but not harsh and it is actually quite fun to use to clean your face. I used it for around 3 weeks on and off and liked it but did not purchase it again after I bought it simply because the price did not justify the effect it left on my skin. I didn't see a reason to pay that much for a product when I could acheieve the same effect with a cheaper product that I could find at the local durgstore. Trust me, go out there save your money and buy a product that is cheaper and use the rest for lunch.

Great face wash without over drying

By 

from Pearl Harbor, HI

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I'm an adult in my early 30s and I am still struggling with acne. I tried this product when macys had a clinique bonus and was quite pleased with this product. I found that it doesn't overdry your skin like many other acne face washes, it also didn't make my face shiny like some of the face washes (checks and balances from Origins for example).  The face wash is a foam so it is easy to use, I don't believe it works well to remove makeup however, but it's good to treat acne and blemishes.  This acne face wash is part of a 3 step skin care program, it also comes with the toner (amazingly the acne clinique toner is not as harsh as the regular toner) and it also comes with a lotion. I have sensitive skin and this product hasn't irritated my skin at all, it's not very strong.  I'm lazy so I tend to skip the toner steps and I just use the face wash.  The only reason why I didn't give this 5 stars is because of the price, you can buy a neutrogena face wash of comparable quality for much cheaper.

Clinique Foaming Cleanser

By 

from Forest City, NC

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I have been using Clinique Foaming Cleanser and it's great. It says for Acne(Solution) but I don't have acne and still use it. I have very oily skin and this stuff helps control my oily skin and doesn't make my face feel dry and taunt after washing. I can't say how this would work for acne as I said I have clear skin. But I have used acne products in the past and they really dry my face and cause peeling. But I have to say if you do have acne try this and see if it helps. It doesn't strip your skin like a lot of cleansers. I love all Cliniques products that I've tried so far and yes they can be expensive but i like to try new beauty products.Some times you can get this as a GWP at Dept stores. They may even have samples I would ask and see.As I said with oily skin I have to have something that is  not going to make my face even more shiny or cause it to be overly dry either. I really like Clinique Foaming Cleanser.

clinique acne solution great for delicate skin

By 

from San Pablo, CA

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I love washing my face with this product because I totally understand how hard it is to find good products to take care of your skin when you have allergy problems plus acne also that are inexpensive. I really loved this product because it makes my face feel refreshed especially if you buy the acne solution set with cucumber cream when you go to sleep and apply you will wake after each day with a soft face and no redness like other acne products.

Not impressed

By 

from Altoona, PA

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I have adult acne.  I have tried many different brands of acne treatments including over the counter and prescriptions.  I appreciate that Clinique can be used for sensitive skin but I found this to be too harsh for my sensitive skin.  It is also very pricey.  I am a busy mother of 3 with multiple jobs.  I need a skin care system that doesn't have to be done in so many steps.  This wash left my skin feeling irritated.  I am not willing to pay so much money for a product that hurts my skin and does not do a great job of cleaning my skin.  Even after washing my face with the Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam, it still had a residue.  The Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam does leave your skin with a "tingly" feeling.  It's a nice feeling but that's all it is....a nice feeling.  It's not a "clean" feeling because it does not do a great job of actually cleaning the skin down to the pores.

Works!

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam:

I have had consistent acne for the past ten years.  Almost nothing works on me.  New regimens or prescriptions for the treatment of acne work for about a week or two and then stop being effective.  I've found that Clinique has treated me the best, along with Neutrogena products.  Clinique isn't cheap though, so always go to the department store and ask the experts which regimen you should use for your skin type. They will also suggest the best products for your specific problem areas.  Clinique isn't drying to your face.  It actually moisturizes your skin as it works its magic.  I know it might not be a big deal, but all their products smell good to and (unlike some toners) do not knock the air our of you when you put it on your face and take a whiff. Also, it doesn't sting. The cleansing foam lathers up really nicely to give you the fresh clean feeling. If you're in the market to try and treat your acne, this could be the purchase to save your face from embarrassment.
