Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion

Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion ($13.00 for 6.7 oz)

*I know that most of my readers have already seen my review of this product, but because I removed it from my regular routine, I just decided to create a separate post on it so all future readers will be able to see it. Oh, and I also covered this product in my Part 4 of my hydroxy acid series on FutureDerm. That post can be found HERE.

Positives: This contains 0.5% salicylic acid at a pH of 2.9, which is great. This product also  has some water-binding agents such as the arginine amino acid and millet seed extract.

Neutrals: None.

Negatives: None.

Packaging: This is packaged in a  tube container with a large opening. However, the general lack of antioxidants and air-sensitive ingredients renders this characteristic quite irrelevant.

Overall: This is a slightly viscous toner that’s appropriate for those who don’t really deal with breakouts; perhaps just the occasional blackheads and whiteheads. Or for those who are sensitive to SA, but still want the benefits. Overall, it’s a mundane but still effective formula for select users. Plus the price is pretty good.


PS = [[[PIS – 0] x WIC] x 100%

PS = [8/10 x 3/3] x 100%

PS = .800 x 100%

PS = 80.0%

AS = B-
