    Comments about Clinique Exfoliating Scrub:

    My second time buying this scrub ! It leaves my face feeling very smooth and exfoliated. If you like abrasive scrubs this is for you! On the other hand, if you have sensitive skin and like gentle scrubs this is not for you. I personally like deeper scrubs that show a difference after one use.

            I noticed when I put foundation that around my cheekbone area was some type of dry looking "flaky" skin. Bought this hoping it would come off and it did with one scrub! I moisturize my face after using this product and my face feels CLEAN & soft. I have combination skin type. I get oily on my t zone especially my nose while the rest is normal. I say it's worth the price too... it got the job done for me so thumbs up!

              This scrub is awesome! This is my first time using anything from Clinique since I tend to go with a more affordable facial scrub. I decided to give this a try after reading the great reviews. It has the perfect amount of grain to it. By that I mean it's grainy enough to clean oily skin like mine but it's gentle enough where you don't feel like you're ripping layers of skin off. I like the clean feeling after I rinse it off. I use it twice a week, a little goes a long way.

                      I love putting it on first thing in the morning and letting it sit a few minutes, then I get in the shower and massage it , it can be used on rough patches on the backs of arms, or on your shoulders or back, knees, legs anywhere you want smooth and soft. Then I go over with a cream wash and my skin feels so soft, smooth and perfect! I use a non soap cleanser on my face, not the body wash, and when I get out I moisturize all over and my skin just glows. You can even try those moisturizers that you apply in the shower and rinse off to save time and it still looks great. It is PERFECT to do before self tanning! It comes out smooth and even, doesn't grab in any rough spots and even lasts longer!

                          Hi! If you do not have oily skin, I would suggest something like Clinique's 7 Day Scrub Cream. Clinique's Exfoliating Scrub offers both manual and chemical exfoliation and also has an additional cleansing base, so it is better suited for an oily skin type. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                          This product should be used about three times a week. You can use 7 day scrub cream Rinse off Formula everyday after you build the tolerance of exfoliating daily.

                          Using about three times a week is perfect. It offers manual as well as chemical exfoliation, so using it everyday to start could be a little too much. After you have used it for a while, if you would like to use it more often, you can absolutely do so.

                          Hi! Any manual scrub can spread breakout. You can use it directly on blackheads but do not use it directly on blemishes that contain bacteria, as the bacteria can spread to other areas of the face.

                          Exfoliating Scrub was designed for a more oily skin type. (skin types 3 and 4 primarily) 7 day scrub is for all skin types. (1-4) Exfoliating Scrub offers manual as well as chemical exfoliation. It also has menthol and it in a cleansing type of base.
                          7 day scrub has fewer silica beads and is in more of a cream base. It is a manual exfoliator. 7 day scrub should be used initially a few times a week, but you can add a day as you feel necessary until you get to 7 days.
