Comments about Clinique Exfoliating Scrub:

This was my all-time favorite scrub in high school and I have no clue why I ever stopped using it! I have incredibly sensitive skin but this always manages to keep it looking and feeling soft and smooth. I'll never turn my back on this again!

      This is a nice exfoliater, it's not too fine but not too rough. The smell isn't bad and my skin felt clean after using this.

          This is not super cheap but a little goes a long way. It exfoliates better than any product I have tried. Some are not gritty enough or way too gritty. This is perfect. Feels like it really scrubs away the grime

                  I didn't think it was possible to fall in love with an exfoliating scrub but it may have happened. My face has never felt cleaner or softer. Yes you do have to apply a little elbow grease to get it out of the bottle but just use some elbow grease and make it happen because it is so worth it.

                    I was looking for a good exfoliator to add to my skincare routine, so I decided to try this product out. This product is gentle and deflakes all your dead skin. My face feels so smooth after using this. I use this product every 2-3 days. I feel like it didn't really have an affect on my blackheads on my nose, but I still think it's an overall great product.

                        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!

                        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!

                      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?

                        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!
