Having always struggled with breakouts, even today where my main concern should be anti-ageing, my skin can be as temperamental as a teenager’s, I am so excited by this new Anti-Blemish product launch from Estee Lauder. 

The new Clear Difference is a highly-effective, rapid-acting system comprised of Clear Difference Advanced Blemish Serum and Clear Difference Targeted Blemish Treatment that targets, treats and dramatically reduces blemishes, effectively yet gently. Taking control of skin, these high-performance, anti-blemish innovations also help prevent new blemishes from forming.  
“Blemishes aren’t just for teenagers – preventing breakouts is a top concern for women today,” says Dr. Nadine Pernodet, Vice President, Basic Science Research – R&D, The Estée Lauder Companies. “This new system is specifically designed to help stop the cycle of breakouts and significantly reduce the look of blemishes and pores.”  
Leveraging Estée Lauder’s expertise and authority in skincare and repair, NEW Clear Difference is powerful, yet gentle enough for every day use. The skin-friendly, oil-free formulas are non-drying, non-irritating, calming and oil-controlling and work together to help skin regain and maintain its true clarity, smoothness and luminosity. The difference is clear – skin looks clearer and healthier in just one week. In just one day, Clear Difference Targeted Blemish Treatment provides a 22% reduction in active blemishes. And the results get better every day.  
Blemishes and breakouts continue to plague a significant proportion of women beyond their teenage years and are triggered by factors such as hormonal fluctuations, stress, environmental assaults and improper cleansing. Such triggers create conditions in skin that can lead to the formation of blemishes. Experts in repair and anti-aging, for Clear Difference Estée Lauder Scientists developed a multi-pronged approach to clear skin –Triple Action Clarity Technology. This comprehensive, exclusive technology including a special blend of Salicylic Acid, Glucosamine and Laminaria Saccharina, works in three ways;
  • Stops the Breakout Cycle – With the proven power of Salicylic Acid, the Clear Difference system targets, treats and reduces blemishes. Skin is purified to keep pores clear and free of debris while blemishes are minimized. With continued use, this system helps to prevent the severity and frequency of future breakouts. 
  • Refines and Calms Skin – A high concentration of Glucosamine, a natural and proven sugar-derived skin refiner, normalizes skin’s natural cellular turnover, whisking away dead and dulling skin cells. This helps prevent pores from becoming congested with debris that can lead to breakouts. A potent, soothing blend of Algae Extract, Sucrose and Caffeine helps to reduce redness and minimize discomfort associated with blemishes. Skin immediately feels calm and hydrated, revealing a smoother, clearer texture.
  • Controls Excess Oil & Reduces Look of Pores – A natural marine extract called Laminaria Saccharina, controls excess oil while visibly reducing the look of pores and helping to clear clogged pores so they appear significantly smaller. Skin is left with a fresh, natural finish.  
Together, the powerful, yet gentle Clear Difference Advanced Blemish Serum and Clear Difference Targeted Blemish Treatment help skin regain and maintain its true clarity and smoothness.

  1. Sounds like a wonderful range. I don't often get blemishes but would still be interested in trying the treatment. At the moment I use Origins Spot Remover and it's amazing although it does dry the skin out a little bit :o) Xx

    1. I have heard good things about the Origins products too, but never tried - in the end of the day, the brand is owned by Estee Lauder so I have no doubt that their products are amazing too. Definitely on my wish list to try...

  2. Have been curious about these new products! Thanks for all the info :)



    1. With the way my skin is acting up at the moment, I'm very keen on trying these products out too!
