I have been using it daily and faithfully for the last 3 years now and i am very satisfied. It really cleared my skin completely and even my monthly break outs are gone. The age spots and the sun spots have faded dramatically (i saw the first results after just one month's use), my skin feels so soft after every use, everything applied on my skin afterwards is so easily and completely absorbed and i can really tell that it is a very good product when i am away and leave this back at home in order to travel light. Just 3 or 4 days in a row without using it and i can see my skin losing its freshness. I am only giving it 4 stars because after 3 years using it i feel as if i am bored with it, but i do not dare change it with anything else!
I didnít think it was too bad. I liked that the granules are actually smaller than the typical scrubs you get so that the product didnít seem too coarse. However, I prefer Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant as a more gentle scrub (trying to treat my skin more gently after years of harsh abuse) so will not re-purchase.
I have been using the toner and liquid wash and my skin was o.k. , Still would have break-outs. After using this scrub every morning...Wow my skin has cleared up and doesn't look ashy or dull anymore.
This is my favorite Clinique skincare product because it's gentle enough to use daily. But I started off using it once a week then gradually building up to daily use. The beads are extremely fine and don't melt into your face, just gently scrubbing off the dead skin. I usually follow with Clinique's 3-Step program and it has worked wonders. I don't have sensitive skin so this doesn't irritate me and the formula is creamier so it works on dry skin as well. It also lasts a long time because a little goes a long way!
While I did like the size and feel of the granules in this scrub, after I rinsed there was a terrible waxy residue left behind! I understand that this scrub is supposed to leave skin moisturizes, but I could literally scrape the waxy residue off with my nail. YUK! I had to rewash my face, then rescrub with sugar before my face felt clean again. Thumbs way down. Maybe I got a bad batch?
Very nice product especial for dryer skins.It's a cream-oil based scrub very gentle.Doesn't irritate my skin and cleans well enough.Leaves skin soft and smooth.For my oily skin It's not the best choice but still does a good job.I found It very similar with dior's grains de magie.If you prefer a strong clarifying scrub then this is not for you
It does what it promise. I love this scrub it if it weren't for the price it would be a staple in facial cleansing cabinet. It doesn't overdry neither it leaves a weird feeling that it hasn't done is job. After using it daily for a week I notice an improvement on my skin's regarding the white heads and blackheads and a reduction of the pimples. My only poobuhuju is the price even before a month I had to buy a new one so I stop until I get a steady job. Otherwise is a keeper!!
I have sensitive skin and find most scrubs are too granule-y and abrasive, like sandpaper. This stuff is perfection! It has a LOT of beads so it actually WORKS but the beads are very smooth and rounded and the cream part isnt too drying. I keep buying this everytime I run out. HG scrub.
I use this scrub once a week on my extremely sensitive skin, and it isn't too harsh. A lot of people could use this more often than once a week, but I don't want to push it. It works well to slough off the dead skin and make my skin feel more refreshed.
i actually really like this scrub. i bought it a couple of winters back when i was combatting dry, dull and flaky skin. (i went to school where the climate is super dry and cold during winter time) it worked great to rid my dry flakes. after moving back to SF, it got stashed in my goodies drawer and forgot all about it. i stumbled across it the other day while cleaning and decided to give it another try. needless to say, i fell in love again. <3 it completely got rid of all my blackheads and all the little bumps on my chin went away. yay.. what more can a girl ask for? i'm pretty sure that there's another scrub out there that's cheaper and just as effective (it's a pretty standard scrub), but until i find it, i'm sticking to this. continued >>
