Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3 Review (updated after 1 month usage)

Hi! I just received my package w/c is the item I'll be reviewing here. I bought it from for P400/60ml bottle. It's from a travel set. I just wanted to try it out first before I buy the whole set especially the big bottle with pump 😉
I've been wanting to try it out so I grabbed the chance to try this small bottle for an affordable price just to try if it works for me. Also please be guided that before I bought this I tried the Skincare test from Clinique's website and I got the result of the skin type 3 which is for Combination Oily Skin. I get oily on my t-zone within the day 😔

Just so you know before I use this Clinique I'm using Avon Anew 360 White Clarifying Cleanser, Avon Anew 360 White Intensive Correcting Serum, Avon Anew 360 White Protective Day Cream SPF20 PA++ and Avon Anew 360 White Vitalizing Night Cream or I could simply say I've been using the Avon Anew 360 White skincare 😁

So, when I started using the Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3 I used Cetaphil as my facial wash in the morning then after I use my Avon Anew 360 White skincare. I'll try to use the Avon Anew 360 White Cleanser alternately.

What: Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3 for Combination Oily Skin (Step 2 of the 3-Step Skincare)

Description from Clinique's website:
Helps clear away pollution, excess oil, dulling flakes for clear, glowing skin. Helps block a blemish. Purifies pores to look cleaner, smaller. Skin grows stronger, stays clearer, healthier. Dermatologist-reformulated to be comfortable, non-drying.

What I can say about it is that it does remove dirt given that I just woke up and washed my face. It does
smell like a mild alcohol (Casino Alcohol? 😁) or medicine but I can live with that. It does not sting at all. I don't know if it's because it's not new or what but I don't know when it was bought or manufactured but I hope it still works as it's indicated on the bottle its shelflife is 24mos.

So now I'll put it to test and wait until tonight if I still get oily in the afternoon. I'll keep you posted. 😚

So, an update on 1 day of using the lotion: I still get oily in the afternoon same as before I use the CCL#3 but the big pimple bump on my right chin has decreased and is not painful when I touched it this morning so that's a good thing about this CCL and this when I put my makeup on it was not flaky as before.

So, here's my update after 1month use of CCL#3: I am happy to use this as I don't get cakey/flakey when I put my powder foundation as before I used this I always get dry patches when I put my powder foundation on. I don't get more big pimples but I do get small/tiny pimples 1s a week I think but it doesn't bother me that much as ling as it's tiny. Also if you notice on the picture some pimple marks have slightly faded but I do have this red bump on my nose because I picked on it last night. 😁 My pimples on my rright temples are not reappearing like before when I used this. I still do get oily in the middle of the day/afternoon so I wanted to try the whole set if it works better.

So, I just bought my 1st big bottle of the CCL#3 yesterday Sept. 30, 2012 at Rustan's ATC for P1,900 w/ free samples of Liquid Soap Mild(30ml) for Type2 skin and DDML(15ml). I had my skin tested by the SA and she asked what time did I put my moistrizer, I said an hour before I arrived at the store and she also touched my face to check if it's oily then she recommended CCL#2 because se said that my fae isn't that oily and it's just moisture but I said I don't like that it looks oily. I still chose the CCL#3 but she advised me that it might dry my face on the long run. So she just gave me free samples of the Liquid soap in Mild for Type 2 skin and DDML. There's no sample available of the DDMG but she said it's okay because if my skin gets dry, the DDML will give/add moisture. But she said that if my face still feels oily from the DDML then I could try the DDMG. So far after 1st use of the liquid soap and DDML I can say I like it because it really has no smell even clinical smell! But, I really don't like the look/feel of shiny even if it's not because of oil so I guess I'll try the DDMG in the future but maybe I'll try the small tube first. But maybe it's okay to use DDML before I put my makeup so it goes on smooth. Sorry for the long post but I like to give all the details. 😊 I'll post another review when I used up all the CCL#3 in 400ml I bought. So, til the next review!
