Clinique is pretty much an iconic brand name when it comes to skincare and expertise. It is an American manufacturer of beauty cosmetics, skincare, fragrances and toiletries that was founded by Evelyn Lauder, daughter-in-law of Estée Lauder.
Clinique's been the most trusted brands out there ever since it was last established fifty-two years ago in 1968. One thing that makes it even more exquisite is that it's a subsidiary of Estee Lauder Companies.
The company specializes in providing services with top trusted dermatologists, which is why today we are going to gloss over their three-step skincare regime that topped the charts in the market—a part of Clinique three-step beauty regime, Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3.

Where we also know products taking us through ten steps of skincare regime, there's this that ends the deal in three of the most essential steps.

The four skin type products that Clinique offers is, very dry to dry, dry combination, combination only, and finally oily. The usage of the three-step regime is pretty straightforward. At first, you have to gently apply the 'Liquid Facial Soap,' which is a basic cleanser for removing makeup, dirt, grime from the skin without stripping too much oil from the skin.
The second step is to apply the 'Clarifying Lotion 2'. This is an alcohol-based toner that removes all the extra residual dirt and dead skins. The final step is to use the 'Moisturizing Lotion' to hydrate the skin.

If we look at global reviews, most of them seem to be positive. It mainly works wonders on acne-prone and oily skin and most of the satisfied users are from this category. After using this product consistently for a brief time, one can see its result working great. While these were the good stuff, one of the pointers we found out is with the ingredients of this product.
As we mentioned, it uses denatured alcohol. You should also know that alcohol in it tends to dry out the skin disrupting the skin barrier if used for a long time. Besides that, another ingredient is witch hazel. As good as this ingredient sounds for providing natural antioxidants, it is used in high concentrations, which might lead to irritation and sensitization for some people. So for some with sensitive skin, they should consider a full check out before purchasing the product.
