The SA recommended this as I was feeling very frustrated with my skin at that time (redness, oily yet dehydrated, sallow looking skin). It is a mask that you're supposed to leave on for about 10-15 minutes for an instant facial.
I'm quite disappointed to report that this did not work for me. I'm not really sure what was it supposed to do in the first place - correct uneven skin tone? clear blemishes? moisturize? - but I couldn't get over the fact that it has glitter in it.
When I was sampling it at the swore, the SA SWORE that it would be washed away using a simple foaming cleanser but I found it very hard to remove. Is this where the radiance effect (from using the turnaround instant facial) supposed to come from - dodgy bits of glitter? Won't buy this again. It's quite pricey too for a product that doesn't show any improvement on your skin.

I like the texture, I like that it is fragrance free. I just can't get past the glitter. I don't want any extra "sparkle" or shine to my face.

I have combination, acne prone skin, and I wanted a mask that would exfoliate, keep oil at bay, and keep breakouts under control. I think I have found it.
I like that it physically and chemically exfoliates. It isn't too gritty, which I also like. My skin feels much smoother after I use it. My acne looks much better, and my skin isn't so slick anymore. I've also noticed that my pores look smaller. It can be drying, but I follow up with the turnaround serum and the dramatically different moisturizer, and the dryness is gone.
This has literally changed my skin after 5 uses. My skin is so glowy and it rarely breaks out. When it does, it isn't anything huge or painful, and it goes away quickly. I've been wearing less makeup! I'll finish it up and I'll probably rebuy it because it's worked so well so far!

I absolutely love this facial mask. I use it every weekend when i'm doing my full pampering routine. Dries in about 5 mins and then feels amazing to buff it off with warm water so you're getting both chemical and manual exfoliation which I really like. My skin feels much smoother and looks brighter after using this mask. It does dry my skin out a bit but i don't mind coz it dries out my t-zone then i can just moisturise as normal and everythings balanced again. Probably not good for sensitive or overly dry skin. My skin feels so nice and glowy after this which is what i'm always going for in skincare. Last ages not too expensive. Love it :)

I have very sensetive skin with cuproze, the counter told me this is a gentle product that won't aggrivate the most sensetive skin. How fullish I was to listen to her. This product in 5 minutes dry your skin out. She told me to use 2-3 times a week. I told her I will try once a week. After I recived red bumps on my cheek from drieness and small blood wvessels arrived suddenly. So I used it once in two weeks, I will use it even longer period of time. Beware from the translation of usage of the product. In my translation it was written to use on wet skin - wrong !! should be used on dry skin, better before the shower (after the product dries for 5 minutes).

I used to have a lot of acne all over my cheeks and forehead till I sorted it all out with Clinique products and a medicated soap. Of all the things I used, this little microdermabrasion dupe feels lyk its doing the most! It smoothens out my skin, reduces the appearance of my pores (they r'nt too big anyway)...and to top it off, gives me that dewy look with all the subtle micro shimmer in it! Its a little harsh to use around the delicate eye area but everywhere els, its a dream. Helps fade acne scars, decrease pigmentation overall and u feel lyk ur skin is renewed. Love this and am on my second tube right now! Tried the Boots dermabrasion kit...wasn't nearly as luxurious as this one. This is worth my money.

Bought this on a whim at duty free and have been really pleasantly surprised as I'm normally underwhelmed by Clinique. If you're looking for a dermabrasion-type product, there are others - way cheaper- on the market, but this is a really good exfoliating mask that I use a couple of times a week and I always find it leaving my face smooth and even looking. I kind of like the glitter too!

I was actually looking for the Pore Minimizer because I wanted to take care of the blackheads, and I didn't realize it was not available anymore when I visited the Clinque counter. The sales lady recommended this one so I bought it. This is a nice scrub with very fine beads but it doesn't really do anything more than exfoliate your face, and for about1/2 the price the 7 day scrub cream performs just as well. This works well as a scrub but over priced in my view. Would not repurchase.

Leaves the skin feeling clean & smooth. Kinda like the glitter effect it leaves after washing the mask off. Overall, not too great and yet not too bad of a product.

This stuff works really well for me. It literally changed the way my skin looked the first time I used it. It made my skin tone look more even and got rid of a lot of dry patches where 2.5% BP dries me out sometimes. Seems like it made the few breakouts I have on my face less red too. I just wish it wasn't quite as thick as it is. I have sensitive skin and rubbing this on is a tiny bit uncomfortable I think I might start blending a tiny bit of water into it before applying.

This product claims a microdermabrasion effect but it doesn't really deliver. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin but at the same time the result isn't clear neither. In the beginning it seemed to have worked (I used it together with Clinique Dark Spot Corrector Serum) but after a few weeks there was no improvement. My acne scars remained the same. It's not too bad but for the price, I think I'd rather go for a product that works (right now I'm using Bulgari Radiance Facial Exfoliator and I'm happy with it). Btw, my skin is medium/tan - prone to hyperpigmentation. I have no idea if it would work better with fair skin.

I've been using this mask for a year and I was satisfied with it (it made my skin drier and I had significantly less clogged pores).
It seems that I can't use it any more since it irritates my skin terribly.
I don't have sensitive skin (or I didn't have until some months ago), but I got some red, very sensitive areas. I've noticed that my face looks more red and hurts after I use the mask., so I assume that it is because of it.

I didn't plan on buying this product. I wanted to buy something just to clean my face because I have some blackheads and the sales lady of Clinique counter recommended me to try this. It is nice that can exfoliate my skin very gently, not harsh at all and I found my skin very soft and smooth after using this. But it didn't work so well on the blackheads and I hate there's some glitters in the product and stay on my face after using it! And it is very expensive for a face exfoliator. I would not purchase it again.

I use this in the shower, and its really nice - It gives you the polished feel, but so does the Pur Minerals Pur Polished, which is much cheaper. I'm not sold on the fact that its suppose to be similar to a microdermabrasion treatment, to me its a scrub to remove dead skin and really help remove excess debris, which it does very nicely, but again so do the other one. Save yourself some money and buy the Pur Minerals one, it actually feels EXACTLY the same but it's only $23 CND compared to $45 CND

I am reviewing a sample of this product (came with a GWP). This is quite the average product...spread opaque on my face, left it for 15 minutes and gently massaged away as instructed. Basic exfoliate hence perks my skin up a bit, but no notable difference the next day. And then I noticed all the glitter! [thinks to self: hmm...did I not take my makeup off properly? but wait! I didn't wear makeup today...] It is past me why anyone would think of putting glitter (albeit fine) in any mask/exfoliant but here it is, and to think people pay AUD$68 for this...

EWW to the glitter! But WOW!! I seriously wouldn't mind the glitter if it's gonna give me such results continuously! Have only used it once. Glitter is frustrating, but my skin was INSTANTLY more radiant and wayyy smoother! I seriously have not felt my skin this smooth for at least 10 years! Definitely would repurchase! Gave it 4 lippie cause of the glitter, otherwise, its perfect!

My favourite Clinique product so far, considering I'm being constantly underwhelmed by this brand's skincare line (love their makeup, though). I, personally, find this exfoliator to be a bit harsh for use 2-3 times a week (like it recommends), but I still love the benefits I get from using it just once a week. It doesn't promise you the world, or anything. It just does exactly what it should, which is what I love about it. I like to use this every Monday morning in the shower to give my complexion a little pick-me-up after the stresses of the previous week and weekend, and I'm pretty much guaranteed a "good face day" whenever I use this; my complexion is noticeably a lot more brighter and clearer afterwards, and I'm definitely planning to repurchase after I run out. Still have the same complaint as I did with Clinique's Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer, though. Which is, considering what you pay for this, I'd like more product. If I did use this 2-3 times a week, it would be gone inside a month. And according to the directions, it's not meant to be used sparingly.
Edit: I'm reading some of the previous reviews now, and was totally surprised by all the remarks that this product has glitter in it. LoL. I never even noticed.

I bought this hoping it would help fading my hyperpigmentation and dark spots and hello, irritation. It left me with new life-size pimples on my most easily affected and infected area, cheeks. Another 'yuck': even though I wasn't bothered, I don't get why they add the glitters or shimmers or whatever they're called to the mask, when we're searching for glowy, not glitzy or flashy. The texture is more like scrub/exfoliant rather than mask, probably that's why it aggravated my skin. But it's pretty good to be applied to my nose I think, I never ever get a single zit on my nose, and this kind of helped get rid of whiteheads.
I hate it when something works for a lot of people but me, this is one of those.

I used this twice a week for about 3 months. I didn't see any particular improvement in my skin. To me, this is just a no frills exfoliator with fine cleansing beads.
Like others have mentions, there are a bunch, and I do mean A BUNCH, of sparkles/shimmer residue on the skin after using it. Even if i use a facial cleanser after, the shimmer does NOT go away. Possibly because there's mica in the ingredients.
The bottom line is, this is simply an easily duped exfoliator. The half used tube is just sitting in my cabinet now because I really hate the post-mask shimmers.

This product is perfect to use to give your skin a fresher, brighter, and more revitalized look to it. I do use it 1 or 2 times a week. And, to help keep my skin looking its best, I certainly do plan to continue to use it.
