I am on the tale end of this product and to be honest am very disappointed. There was a time I used all clinique skin care because drugstore wasn't working for me so I thought let's try high end (still at the cheaper spectrum however haha). I wanted a new scrub and this gave so many heafty promises I couldn't pass it up even for it's high price tag. At first I was leaving it on and letting it harden then rinsing and to be honest I don't see the point, I get the same results from just going scrubbies on a freshly cleansed face. I do like how the particles are fine and there are many of them, making it abrasive enough. My skin is very dry and often has a bit of an itch to it that only abrasive scrubs can scratch and this does it to an extent. The packaging promises radiance and the only thing I see is glitter which is like do you think I'm looking in the mirror and not seeing glitter particles on my face clinique? I'm not looking in the mirror like OOOH LOOK AT THIS RADIANCE it's a manufactured effect. I used the whole thing because it worked well enough at removing dead skin but it was nothing special, and not worth the price tag.
I'm not adding anything new here. The scrub particles are very fine and it does a good job exfoliating. It helps with blocked pores, BUT BUT BUT the GLITTER particles are crazy. They are impossible to wash off, maybe they are part of the scrubbing agent, but to me it's totally pointless. I don't need glitter residue fom a mask.
The fine texture still works great for a scrub. Polishes my skin clean. However the price is pretty expensive here. I would have to be thrifty in using it.
I find that this product is amazing. My skin glows after I have used this!! It feels so clean and wonderful. I have only used sit a few times and can't wait to use it again. I would absolutely recommend,
The SA recommended this as I was feeling very frustrated with my skin at that time (redness, oily yet dehydrated, sallow looking skin). It is a mask that you're supposed to leave on for about 10-15 minutes for an instant facial.
I'm quite disappointed to report that this did not work for me. I'm not really sure what was it supposed to do in the first place - correct uneven skin tone? clear blemishes? moisturize? - but I couldn't get over the fact that it has glitter in it.
When I was sampling it at the swore, the SA SWORE that it would be washed away using a simple foaming cleanser but I found it very hard to remove. Is this where the radiance effect (from using the turnaround instant facial) supposed to come from - dodgy bits of glitter? Won't buy this again. It's quite pricey too for a product that doesn't show any improvement on your skin.
I like the texture, I like that it is fragrance free. I just can't get past the glitter. I don't want any extra "sparkle" or shine to my face.
I have combination, acne prone skin, and I wanted a mask that would exfoliate, keep oil at bay, and keep breakouts under control. I think I have found it.
I like that it physically and chemically exfoliates. It isn't too gritty, which I also like. My skin feels much smoother after I use it. My acne looks much better, and my skin isn't so slick anymore. I've also noticed that my pores look smaller. It can be drying, but I follow up with the turnaround serum and the dramatically different moisturizer, and the dryness is gone.
This has literally changed my skin after 5 uses. My skin is so glowy and it rarely breaks out. When it does, it isn't anything huge or painful, and it goes away quickly. I've been wearing less makeup! I'll finish it up and I'll probably rebuy it because it's worked so well so far!
I absolutely love this facial mask. I use it every weekend when i'm doing my full pampering routine. Dries in about 5 mins and then feels amazing to buff it off with warm water so you're getting both chemical and manual exfoliation which I really like. My skin feels much smoother and looks brighter after using this mask. It does dry my skin out a bit but i don't mind coz it dries out my t-zone then i can just moisturise as normal and everythings balanced again. Probably not good for sensitive or overly dry skin. My skin feels so nice and glowy after this which is what i'm always going for in skincare. Last ages not too expensive. Love it :)
I have very sensetive skin with cuproze, the counter told me this is a gentle product that won't aggrivate the most sensetive skin. How fullish I was to listen to her. This product in 5 minutes dry your skin out. She told me to use 2-3 times a week. I told her I will try once a week. After I recived red bumps on my cheek from drieness and small blood wvessels arrived suddenly. So I used it once in two weeks, I will use it even longer period of time. Beware from the translation of usage of the product. In my translation it was written to use on wet skin - wrong !! should be used on dry skin, better before the shower (after the product dries for 5 minutes).
I used to have a lot of acne all over my cheeks and forehead till I sorted it all out with Clinique products and a medicated soap. Of all the things I used, this little microdermabrasion dupe feels lyk its doing the most! It smoothens out my skin, reduces the appearance of my pores (they r'nt too big anyway)...and to top it off, gives me that dewy look with all the subtle micro shimmer in it! Its a little harsh to use around the delicate eye area but everywhere els, its a dream. Helps fade acne scars, decrease pigmentation overall and u feel lyk ur skin is renewed. Love this and am on my second tube right now! Tried the Boots dermabrasion kit...wasn't nearly as luxurious as this one. This is worth my money.
