        I have always used the 7 day scrub cream, which I love but decided to try this because my face is so oily. Glad that I did! My face feels clean and smooth after I use it and has a wonderful tingly feeling.

                  I really like this product. I've been using it about two weeks. The exfoliating particles are small and do a great job of controlling blackheads. It has clean feel and easy to rinse off.

                      A:

                      Hi! Whiteheads are caused by oil being trapped by dead skin. This is a great product for whiteheads that have not turned into blemishes. It cleanses, controls oil and exfoliates. You can use it several times a week on make up free skin. If the whiteheads turn into actual breakout, you should prevent scrubbing, as it can spread the breakout and bacteria on the skin. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                      A:

                      Hi! This product is nice for someone that has skin that is comfortable all over, which is what we call a skin type #3, as well as someone that has oily skin. It should be used 2 - 3 times a week on a make up free face before cleansing with your facial soap.
                      If you have dry skin, you may want to try Clinique's 7 Day Scrub Cream instead. It is for all skin types. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  • Q:

                    I have cystic acne. This says to not use on active breakouts. If my acne cyst is still in the stage of just a painful bump with no open sore is it OK to use on that area, or is that still considered an active breakout?

                      A:

                      Hi! Exfoliating Scrub is a great product to improve texture in the skin and unclog pores. Active breakout is considered to be breakout that could spread bacteria on the skin. I understand how painful that cystic acne can be on the skin, and it is possible that the action of using a scrub on the skin could make it more tender and uncomfortable. The best way to treat cystic acne is to see a dermatologist, as they can treat it in a more custom fit way. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                      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.

                      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.
