Clinique Liquid Facial Soap : Photos, Review, Swatch

It takes a while for me to try different skin care products as my skin is almost problem free so I am always extra cautious to not ruin it ! When I started my CTM routine I wanted to get a good cleanser as I always thought most of the cleansers do not do what they claim and all they can do is cleanse the skin. The Clinique Liquid Facial Soap completely changed my opinion and I did began to believe in cleansers ! The SAs at Clinique were also very friendly and helped me to choose the right cleanser for my skin type.


I got the 'mild' facial soap as my skin type was type 2 - dry combination according to Clinique. The liquid soap is very mild and smells citrus or lemony very much like my Forest Essentials Face Wash [ Review HERE] I quite like the fragrance. The facial soap lathers pretty well [ ya, it has SLS !] and on washing my face it leaves a clean hydrated skin behind. Since it is mild I always feel very comfortable with this one and it gets washed off easily too. Does not leave the skin stretchy or dry. On regular usage it did help my skin a lot. It keeps my skin soft, clean and hydrated. One bottle lasts really long - the SA said 3-4 months but for me I have been using this for the past 8 months [you can see how old the bottle is !!] and it will last me for another couple of months. Comes with an easy to use pump dispenser that doesn't work anymore :(

  • The liquid soap is very mild.
  • Lathers pretty well.
  • Gets washed off easily.
  • Does not leave a stretchy / dry skin.
  • Skin feels healthy and hydrated.
  • Regular usage imparts a glow in the face.
  • Comes in a pump dispenser.
  • One bottle lasts me for an year !!

  • Not travel friendly.
  • The pump dispenser doesn't work anymore !


The price of Clinique Liquid Facial Soap is Rs.1200 for 200 ml. However if you buy all 3 -cleanser, toner and moisturizer as a kit to try, it would cost you Rs.1850 for all 3 in a kit but smaller version, of course.


The Clinique Liquid Facial Soap is definitely an amazing product that made me actually believe in cleansers. This liquid soap proved that cleansers can do much more than cleansing. This is my 3rd bottle and this is one of the very few products I have ever repurchased. If you try it once you will definitely get hooked on to it. I highly recommend this product to you and the SA would really help you by suggesting the right one for your skin type. Totally worth the money considering that it lasts for almost an year !

  2. i recently started on clinique products n love their clarifying lotion n moisturizer..though for cleanser i love sebamed and avene more :) i belong to oily to acne prone family!

    1. Whenever I hear about sebamed I think about you Pari. I will definitely try it one day :)

  3. I tried cetaphil and sebamed and then clinique. I was not satisfied with the former 2. Just loved this clinique dry combi cleanser. And yes, it lasted abt a year! The dispenser stopped working for me too, I took it out washed it in hot water and aired it and it starting working again.

    1. Thanks for that suggestion Prerna, will try the same way to fix my dispenser too :)
