This is such a great face scrub! Really effective and rinses clean, doesn't leave little grains behind. The mint in it leaves my skin feeling clean and invigorated!
I've been using this scrub for years now and I've tried others because it's expensive and keeps going up in price but I always come back. I have large pores, oily skin, etc. and it's the only thing that de-flakes and makes my face feel clean. Now my boyfriend is hooked so we split the bill.
Simply the best exfoliator I've ever used. The Clinique Exfoliating Scrub tingles like the soap when you apply it. It feels minty and refreshing. The grains are very fine and dense. It doesn't take a lot of product to get the job done. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, and refreshed. It truly is hypoallergenic, which is one of the reasons I choose it over the Dr. Brandt. It has become one of my staples.
I've tried about 3-4 different kinds of facial scrubs in the last few years, but this one works best for me. Every time I've used it, my skin has been noticeably better in the months the tube has lasted, and I only use it once a week! I like the grains and the mintiness of it, and unlike the Origins scrub I'm currently using, this one really gets your face clean. (Origins is just like a cleansing gel with a few half-hearted grains thrown in) It would be great, though, if Clinique sold it in a flip top tube instead of a twist on/twist off one.
Ok, here's the thing...
This scrub is expensive, but worth every penny. It tingles so you can really feel it working, and the morning after I use it, my skin looks amazingly fresh and clean. It's a heavy duty scrub, but it's gentle enough for me to use on my sensitive skin twice a week. A fabulous product that I'll most definitely buy again when I run out.
Great scrub. The menthol tingly feeling is a bit scary the first time, but it doesnt burn or cause any problems for me. Only need the tiniest amount so lasts ages.
I've used this product for years and then stopped for a while and was using baking soda to exfoliate. Well, I decided to repurchase this recently and wow, I forgot how wonderful it is! My face is so smooth and I love the tingly feel it leaves from the menthol.
I didn't like this at all! It didn't exfoliate enough and I was using it everyday. The menthol smell is lovely though and the tingle is also nice but it goes away after a few weeks of usage. I will not repurchase this, it didn't wotk for me.
Really good, strong exfoliating scrub. At first I was shocked at the menthol, and quite bothered by it. It did tingle my skin and I thought it might irritate it so I stopped using it for ages. Smelt a bit chemically. Tried a few other brands and recently came back to this. I love that this scrub doesnt beat aroudn the bush! There are HEAPS of grains and it's a really solid paste that comes out of the tube. So it last for ages. I prefer this to gentler scrubs with less + smaller grains – you just end up srubbing them too hard into your skin and that's more damaging I think. Nothing more annoying thanan exfoliator that doesnt fee like it's working IMO.
I love this scrub. It exfoliates really well and leaves my skin feeling baby soft. I get so excited when I know it's time for me to use it; I use it about 3 times a week. If you're putting it on your skin dry, then it might feel a bit uncomfortable and scratchy as you rub it in, but if you wet your skin first, it isn't bothersome. I like the menthol in this scrub because it makes my skin tingle, but I think it's a bit too strong because my eyes would get watery as I use it. Overall, this is an excellent scrub...the best I've tried so far. I will definitely repurchase.
