Review: Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions

Hey everyone, I have moved back to my hometown now! The past few days have been busy for packing and unpacking my stuffs. Although I have limited access to internet connection here, I'll try my best to catch up with you girls :)

Here's the review for Clinique anti-blemish solutions that I have been using for almost 2 months. I only use their Clarifying Lotion and Clearing Moisturizer. I don't use the cleanser as I want to finish my Beautymaker Deep Cleansing Foam first, cause I don't like to waste a product especially it doesn't break out on me although it basically does nothing too. But after the cleanser is finished, I'm going to get the Clinique cleanser :D. I don't know if this Anti-Blemish Solutions the same with the Acne Solutions line, but they have the same packaging so I suppose they are just the same.


As I have said a few times before, my skin has been breaking real bad since a few months ago. I'll describe my skin condition as 10% for that time, all the acne on my jawline and cheeks makes me feel really embarrassed to show my bare face. I preferred to stay home all the time on that time. But when I started using Aspirin mask, my skin has became better, i would say the condition was 50%. Of course 50% isn't good enough for me, I was still struggling to hide my face. And since I have been using this Clinique anti-blemish solutions, my skin condition is better. It's about 80% now, not fully 100% cause I still have a lot of acne scars. And I really regret that I didn't try it long time ago... So I can say that I really like this, I'm really glad that I decide to finally try it despite the mixed reviews about it. I also notice that my skin is less oily nowadays, I hardly have to blot my face during the days. The only thing that I don't like is the scent. They have a really strong alcohol scent, especially the Clarifying Lotion. It reminds me of a scent that I'm familiar with, then I asked my sister to smell it, she said it's like a wine scent. And my cousin said it smells exactly like Choya.
So, overall it's a great product for me. I definitely will get them again if I ever run out of them.

Pros:
Clears my acne well
Good on oil control
Available locally

Cons:
Very unpleasant smell
Quite expensive at here

Rating: 4.5/5
Repurchase: Yes, definitely!

Hey!
blogwalking here^^

I just purchased Clinique Skincare today.
I was thinking of getting the anti-blemish too because I have some blemishes that I want to get rid to but the clinique lady told me that it's only a little so it's not necessarily needed.
so I purchased the original skincare on #3 (used to be on#2).

would love to see pictures improment on you (if you can)^^
I love the review~~
keep it up ^^

<3

sizbelle said...

Ahleessa said...

Good to hear you find a product that is working for you! I'm looking for one that works for my aging skin... lol~ :X

I usually don't take pictures of empty containers. I thought of this idea when I saw other bloggers post their empty containers... hehe~ I thought it was such a good idea especially since I buy more than I finish. :X I'm hoping this will motivate me to finish the things I have... hehe~

Catherine said...

Ah, good for you for finding something that works! Hope your marks clear up soon! <3

Stephanie said...
