I did have some small breakouts in the first few weeks but I understood that this should be expected when starting a new skin regimen. After using it daily for probably 6 weeks the breakout diminished and I no longer have them. I am satisfied with the Clinique 3 step system. My skin is soft yet firm and I haven't noticed any additional aging since using it. I have a dark spot under my eye that I believe has gotten lighter and the dry patches I used to have around my nose and forehead have diminished altogether. The coloring of my skin doesn't seem to have changed much, I still have some uneven skin tone. I really don't expect much from any products I use on my skin, it keeps the disappointment at a minimum.
The great thing about using Clinique is the bonus gifts. You can find a schedule for these as well as what store is having them here, Clinique Bonus Time. There is almost always, in my experience, a sample of the step 3 moisturizer in these gifts. Usually you only have to spend $27.00 to get them so if you buy the first 2 steps that will give you the total you need to qualify for the gift.
In the last few bonus gifts I received the sample size of the Repairwear Laser Focus eye cream. Although I have been using it along with the 3 step system I haven't noticed a real difference.
Thanks for reading my 1st post.
Much love and God Bless
