Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Cleansing Gel: The Holy Grail of Acne Skincare

It sounds boring, looks boring and for all intents and purposes is boring; but, to accompany the launch of a new Clinique Sonic Anti Blemish Solutions brush head, the new Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Cleansing Gel is one of my top products already for 2015.

Most of us get spots, whether it’s persistent, occasional or the ‘travelling spot’ that leaves with another immediately taking its place somewhere else like a game of ‘whack-a-mole’. Also blackheads, a similar concern, are at the top of many people’s list.

Clinique have always been my go-to brand for acne, blemish and spot care as they follow the essential principles when it comes to treating this type of concern:

  • Don’t use anything coarse, scrubbing or overly harsh
  • Unblock dead skin cells from pores with gentle, chemical exfoliation
  • Don’t dry the skin out
  • Restore moisture with water and not with oil

This is why the Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions 3-Step have been a staple in my bathroom cabinet for some years now, since I was a teenager. I might not use them all the time, but they’re there when I need them.

The only problem has been with the Anti Blemish Solutions Foaming Cleanser. I sort of like it, -ish, but my face never feels 100% cleansed plus it’s almost impossible to travel with as it requires a foaming pump.

In steps the Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Cleansing Gel.

It’s super light-weight as far as a foaming gel goes; almost runny. You don’t need much for it to start foaming but I have to stress that the foam is minimal; no more than you’d get from the Foaming Cleanser. This is good as you don’t want lots of bubbly suds drying out your acne-prone/blemish-prone skin.

It leaves skin feeling super cleansed, but not at all dry. Your moisturiser will sink in nicely but you won’t be gagging for it.

Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Cleansing Gel is also amazing for blemishes on the body including back acne, bum acne and acne anywhere else you’d care to mention. It’s the power of salicylic acid that really helps to unblock those pores, helping to eliminate the p. Acne bacteria (the spot causing bacterium) and restore healthy cell function.

I’m loving it so far and even though I’m not dealing with any real spots at this very moment, I’m using this every day as a preventative measure and it seems to be working; with the apartment move I’ve not had a single outbreak! *fingers crossed*.

There is an easier way to deal with cystic and all other forms of acne. Acne sufferers hate prescription because they come with side-effects and often take time to deliver results. Just use “Niapads”, available on Amazon USA. All you do is take a pad, wet with water and place it on acne. When dry, peel and rinse. Sit back and watch acne fade away. It really is that simple.

Clinique has always been a little too harsh for my skin (seriously sensitive Sally over here), but I give kudos to them for always stepping up their game.
