My skin is dry and sensitive, so finding exfoliating products is difficult. This scrub cream works on my my skin, but just barely. I massaged it in with a light touch and only on areas that weren't really sensitive. I removed gently with a damp warm washcloth. I used it once or twice a week.
I love this exfoliating scrub. I have tried a lot of different products and like the texture of this one. It is not too abrasive and works gently. This product is great for sensitive skin and combination skin, both of which I have. I recommend it highly. It costs more than some drugstore brands but works quite well.
Not suitable for my sensitive skin. Caused a breakout after 2 uses. Skin feels clean after using. Stopped using since the breakout.
I don't remember how much this is but i do know that i bought it on the recommendation of a friend.
Sephora describes this scrub cream as:
This exfoliating scrub gently brushes away roughness and flakiness.
Well i put it to the test when i had super dry flaky skin on my cheeks, i used this scrub cream everyday and after i scrubbed. My cheeks were still rough from the flakes so it definitely didn't work for me.
Also it didn't feel very well with all those rough beads, i felt it worked worse than the st ives' apricot scrub!
Absolutely this is not an everyday scrub for me. I tried to use three or four times a week on my wet skin, but end up with my skin gets irritated.
So I use this scrub once a week on my wet skin. I rub my skin with it in circular motion light-handedly. And the result is satisfying. My skin get smoother. It leaves clean and moist feeling. My skin gets more vibrant.
I bought a sample size of this product, and will definitely repurchase the full size.
Bleah what a disgusting product! My skin just doesn't like Clinique products. There is only one thing that my skin likes (pore refining serum , the old version) but in rest I find them bad for my skin. I tried lots of Clinique products and they all dissapointed me.
This scrub leaves my skin red, irritated, my pores look bigger and my face is shiny.
I used this product one time and it ended up in the bin. Honestly this is the only scrub that I used once and then just got rid of it, it was so bad!
Usually I give products a chance but this doesn't deserve any.
This is horrendous for sensitive skin.
Broke me out and highly irritating scraping little beads.
My skin hated it and was reactive and red for a while after using it for only a few times.
I got a Clinique voucher after having to return some of their other skin products that left my skin badly damaged. This is one of the things that I bought with the voucher, so to me it was essentially an experiment.
It sounded a bit like a harsh product, so I was actually surprised when it caused no damage. It did leave my skin feeling clean, if just a tad greasy. I would definitely use a cleanser afterwards. It has a strong unpleasant smell (is it petroleum?) although I don't really mind that. It's good for removing stubborn sunscreen or make-up. I would never use it everyday though. I just use it once a week, other times I alternate with a Clarisonic cleansing or DHL cleansing oil.
A word of caution... they specifically say you shouldn't use it on your lips. In fact, you should avoid exfoliating your lips altogether.
I received a giant TUB of this as a gift, and am sad to say that I did not love this product (nor like it very much). I can hardly stand to use it once a week, let alone seven days, as it says on the label! The granules are rough on my skin, and the creamy formula is so, so greasy.
I only put a dab on my forehead and cheeks, but I definitely have to wet my face first. Then, just trying to swipe it off with a cotton pad feels like my skin is being ripped off. So, I wash the granules off first, then take a cotton pad to remove the greasy stuff.
Result: skin is exfoliated leaving red spots in dry patches in cheeks, while other areas are shiny in a greasy sort of way.
For cleaning off make up, the greasiness does take off my Colorstay foundation, but Pond's Cold Cream is much more gentle, effective, and cheaper!
I love this stuff. I first tried a sample of it with an online order. It's not too harsh and leaves my skin very smooth. The first sample tube lasted me a long time, and I ended up getting another one after I bought a regular size tube. I use this every other day after their mild facial soap, and only need about 3-4 pea sized amounts for my entire face. Lasts a long time, which you should take into consideration when looking at the price.
