Skin Care Review: clinique astringent

by Anonymous

Adverse Effects

There were no benefits. Using plain soap and water would work better.

Irritates skin, even the "sensitive" solution.

It seems the solution is made mostly of rubbing alcohol with some pink or blue colorant for male/female use. This solution, like rubbing alcohol makes my skin red and irritated and does absolutly nothing to improve skin condition. Of course if you're one of those people who use rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball to clean your face, this may work for you so long as you dont mind the 500-600% mark up in price. It seems clinique, like many cosmetic companies are out to make a buck. If putting color into rubbing alcohol and marketing it as "exfoliant" makes them money, they'll keep on doing it. Nuff said.

Do not waste your money. You're essentially buying colored rubbing alcohol.
