The twice daily cleansing foam promises to help clear skin and prevent acne. It removes dirt, excess oil and unclogs pores to leave face squeaky clean. When used as part of the clear skin system protocol, it reduces active blemishes by 37% in 3 days. I don’t have many blemishes just the here and there stray pimple and then the dark spot that refuses to go away. The foaming cleanser had a slight medicinal scent and provided a rich lather. I didn’t purchase this foam to use as a part of the Clinique cleansing protocol but as a basic cleanser to use. I didn’t notice much of a difference over my regular drugstore cleanser. I still got the occasional pimple or cluster of small pimples on my face. I think I will stick to my regular cleanser and avoid paying the mark up.
