I keep this in my shower at all times. The tube is perfect for the shower. I would not recommend using a large amount or using until your face is wet with water first. What I do is use my cleanser and before rinsing the cleanser I use a dab of this scrub. My skin feels soft and exfoliated. I use about three times a week.
Got a large tube of this as GWP and while I want to like it, I just find it average. It's a little too harsh for its name -- no way could I ever use this 7 days a week. Tube is great for the shower, no strong fragrance, effective exfoliation, but rather expensive for a scrub. Mostly I just find it too harsh an exfoliant.
I have a sample of this product from the Clinique Bonus promotion and I bought the product as well. It has been 3/4s of the year and I have not even finished the sample yet. I think I might have overdid it a little.
I like this scrub cream as it cleans my face quite nicely and the exfoliating particles are fine. It seems quite gentle and I don't think it breaks me out (Although whenever I wash with any cleanser or scrub, sometimes new whiteheads form - I don't know if this is normal).
The scrub is really quite creamy. I do not use a lot of it because I find that a little bit is enough to use for my entire face. I think I will be sticking to this exfoliator for a while until I want to try something new again.
I had bought this scrub when my skin was going thru a bad phase and was dull n rough. And I didn't have time to go to the salon for facials. So I bought this and it really made a difference to my skin. It sloughed off all the rough dead skin cells and made my skin softer and smoother. I used it thrice a week coz I didn't want to over-exfoliate by using it daily.
I didn't find the scrub to harsh, in fact its quite a gentle scrub and has a kind of "clinical" (pardon the pun) smell to it. It lasted me for months so though its expensive, its good value for money.
The only reason why I wouldn't buy this again is because I wouldn't buy any facial scrub now. I have found two amazing natural, chemical free scrubs right in my own kitchen that I can play around with and that make my skin just amazing! One is plain rice flour - I make a paste with buttermilk/ lemon juice/ cucumber juice or plain water depending on how my skin is feeling - and the other is sugar+lemon juice combo. I use both these as scrubs/face masks and they are wonderful for my skin. They brighten my face and I've found that the sugar actually reduces the drying, acidic effect of the lemon juice. Try it and see. I'm certainly not spending any more money on chemical loaded scrubs any more.
Received this product as a sample. Read other reviews that claimed it contains parabens, so wouldn't purchase (the sample size doesn't list ingredients). Found that the scrub was too gentle for my taste and the product smelled like plastic. I prefer Peter Thomas Roth's Peel Pads
I love this scrub! I started using it and got several compliments on my skin in the weeks following. Its gentle enough to use everyday, and leaves your skin feeling so soft. It has helped to give my skin a nice fresh glow, I just love it!
I have normal skin, but I like products that are not harsh or clog my pores. I have been using this polish for many years and my skin always looks polished and feels good after I use it. I think it is such a great product!!!
This exfoliator sounds great but,I'm going to stay away from it.It is loaded with parabens! I'm going to give St Ive's a try.Their products are very inexpensive and do not contain any parabens.
This is one of the best scrubs I have used. I do not use it daily, I don't need to. This reminds me more of a microdermabrasion treatment. It has a very fine grit that is not too harsh but is highly effective. Much better than any drugstore scrub I have tried. After I use this my skin is red (but it fades quickly) and very soft and smooth. It really clears away the dead skin and any other impurities. I use it 1 or 2x weekly and will continue to use.
I always come crawling back to this scrub. I wouldn't say it's the HG of scrubs, but I keep repurchasing because it's a mild yet effective exfoliant and it actually rinses off. Also, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
