Review of Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub (with lemon, papaya, and caffeine) by Ingrid2323
I discovered this about 6 months ago and am on my 3rd bottle. It used to feel like a chore to wash my face, but now I love it.
(I have combination skin; very oily T-zone and prone to dry patches on cheeks)
Lather--Not too rich or strident. Very quick, with just a pea-sized amount. Picks up grease quickly but doesn't strip skin. Rinses easily.
Scent--Unlike other C&C Morning Burst products that have left my face smelling chemically or like toothpaste, this one leaves me smelling--softly--like citrus. My boyfriend always comments on how much he likes the scent when he kisses my clean face.
Packaging--Like that doesn't have a pump, because it's thrown in my overnight bag often, without worry. The bright design is also aesthetically pleasing.
Exfoliating factor--Gentle enough to use 2x daily. No matter how hard I scrub, I never feel the irritation or tearing I do with St. Ive's apricot scrub (or similar products). The "beads" are slippery enough that you can press hard to buff where you want to, and rub gently to NOT exfoliate where you DON'T want to.
