I have combination skin and find that it looks its best if I can use a mild exfoliant daily. Clinique's 7 day scrub has very fine scrubbing beads that gently slough off dead skin. Feels like this leaves a residue on my skin. I like Queen Helene Raspberry Pomegranate scrub better. It has more fine scrubbies, paraben free and a great scent!
Clinique's packaging is thankfully minimal-no big deal.
I have a tendancy to use facial scrubs idiotically. I OVER scrub. Disaster. But this promised gentle and so far seems to be. The only thing keeping me back from buying it again, unless there's a promotion going on, is the price, so I'll stretch this as far as I can!
My favorite part of my new Clinique skincare routine. I can use this scrub every single day, without damaging my skin or drying it out.
It's very mild and has a slight moisturizing effect, so I use it right after I finish cleansing, to start adding moisture back into my skin. It's one of the first scrubs I've found that truly gets rid of the dry flaky skin around my nose and on my cheeks, and actually helps to get rid of the appearance of some blackheads.
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with oily skin, just us dry girls, since we need the extra moisture. Anyone with sensitive, reactive skin who has a hard time finding a scrub that doesn't destroy your skin, give this a go!
so i was a bit on the plonker side when i first started using this product. well i was when it came to scrubs and exfoliators, i didnt know to replace the cleanser with the scrub for that time when you exfoliate your face.
it made me think that it was too harsh on my skin. but now that i know where i went wrong, i find that its really good for my sensitive dehydrated skin! my skin is very smooth feeling, it helps a little bit with my sorta very mild eczema on my face.
all in all, i really good buy
I received this as a GWP, but immediately purchased it once it ran out. I use this scrub about every other day and it really helps keep skin problems away. It's gentle on my sensitive skin, and has no odor at all. I will keep purchasing this one.
I've used this for years. This is a great scrub. As a matter of fact, this is better than the new scrub/mask that they have.
way to harsh it irritated my skin i cant use this :(
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. It leaves my face feeling clean, exfoliated, and refreshed. No odor, and no harsh chemicals. Very gentle and satisfying.
I actually do use this scrub 7 days a week but that's only because my face does not feel clean if I don't. I don't use a stronger scrub, I just stick to my little mild 7 day a week scrub for everyday.
My only complaint is that you don't get very much product for your money.
Wow, I've been using this a while so I really should review it! I love this scrub but I have very dry, reactive, sensitive skin, even in the middle of summer. It is very creamy so oily-skinned gals may not like it. I think it rinses off cleanly but my skin doesn't feel stripped, but I can see where this might feel like it leaves a film to some people. Contains no fragrance or colorants to irritate my skin and only mild preservatives. It's not the cheapest scrub I've ever used, but I've finally learned it's cheaper to just purchase this rather than buy 3 other things I hate and have to use up on my body, and still wind up buying this too for my face! I have used this as much as 4 times a week, but I can't really use chemical exfoliants too much. My skin is just getting back to the point where it will tolerate Turnaround Cream once a day. Anyway, excellent basic no-frills scrub, unlike anything I've been able to find in a drugstore or from other department store brands!
This scrub is not cheap but it works fine to me. I use this scrub 2 days a week and I'm very pleased with it (it's a soft srub, but I use another 'hard' scrub sometimes because 7 day scrub doesn't scrub everything).
