Most Helpful Positive Review L.O.V.E.
I had used Clinique many years ago and loved it, just lost track of it through the years. As I have gotten older, thought it was time to step up the skin care a bit...I got the basic skin care set, and ended up I could not use it. Made my face break out and have rosacea flare ups. Not sure why, but...
Recently, I bought some foundation and the gal recommended I try this.
She said my foundation was 'dragging' when she was applying it, and I was more than a little skeptical.
Told her my previous experience, and she suggested I try using this just every other day and see how it went.
I love this stuff! It has not irritated my skin at all, and it has a cooling menthol type of smell/tingle to it. Not overpowering at all, but that did surprise me a little.
I am slowly getting rid of some trouble spots, (rough patches) and has been a huge difference in make up application.
It was somewhat more than you pay for a drug store brand, but it is worth it as it does so much more!
Most Helpful Critical Review I just wished I listened to my gut.
The only good thing I could say about this product was the cooling effect from the menthol but little did I know that the menthol would down spiral my skin into more problems than what I started with. I've used Clinique before and I remember stopping the usage of the Dramatically Different Lotion because that caused me to have cystic acne. I initially came down here to get a Nars concealer but was talked into trying out Cliniques skin care and decided if this would have better results from the last time I used a product from their line. Well never again, my skin broke the heck out it was the weirdest thing ever. My skin felt super itchy and congested and I've just finally gotten rid of the active areas this month but the hyper-pigmentation it left behind is just saddening. I only used the product 3 times, mind you it was only a sample so thank god I didn't waste my money but still, the results that it left behind will never make me buy from this brand again. I'm glad it worked for other people but I guess my skin just doesn't agree with what ever ingredients this company supplies in their products.

I have been using this product for about 40 years. I also use the Men's Scrub too. I'm in my late 60's now and my skin looks really nice. I get compliments all the time. This product and the Men's Scrub actually have enough grit to truly exfoliate my skin. Product's like the 7 Day Scrub are 100% useless for exfoliating. This actually takes the dead skin and flakiness away. I use it every morning in the shower. I hope they never change the formulation to make it less gritty. The grit is what I love about it!! No......it's not too rough for someone over 60. I even mix it with Apricot Scrub a couple of times a week too.
Great product for facial skin.

Would gladly recommend this product to anyone with skin issues.
Great job on skin.
Davisbe from Columbia Missouri
Love this product. Does not dry skin.
NOT the same
Preeti from Chicago
I have been using this staple product for 5+ years and noticed upon my recent purchase that the formula has changed. I am so disappointed. It feels like a completely different scrub. I miss the menthol/minty tingling sensation that this product USED to have. I will be returning and no longer purchasing this Clinique scrub
I would not buy this product again
Lulu from Leander
The new formula feels like sunscreen. I wouldn't consider it as an exfoliating scrub anymore. It no longer has the tingling sensation after you wash your face and it has a weird smell. The original product was so much better, pretty bummed that they changed it!
bibi from Texas
I love this product. I've bought 2 of these so far and I will continue to purchase this. It makes my skin feel soft and not drying at all. I actually feel like my skin is clean after I use it.
Great face scrub!
Sillycin from Long Island NY
I love using this face scrub. I just bought it again.
Have used this for many years and love it!
Onnibay from OH
I have used Clinique products for many years and this is such a good scrub for in the morning---makes my face feel so clean and refreshed!
RK from Ohio
I've been using this product for the last ~5 years, 3x a week, and honestly love it. It's not too harsh on my face, and I feel like it works great.
Excellent Physical Exfoliator
Blacksheep Blonde from Everywhere, USA
No crushed up walnut shells, which damage your skin. Thank you Clinique! Has a slight menthol effect to it which I don't smell, only feel after its on my face for a minute.
I use a nickel size amount and it covers my whole face. I smooth it on my skin dry first. Then dampen my hands and lightly scrub my face. While its still on I use my cream cleanser and scrub my face with both. Then rinse. Skin is super smooth without being overly clean and completely exfoliated.
I would definitely recommend this product for dead skin cell
Dottie from PA
I have been using this product daily for over three decades and I'm constantly complimented when how beautiful complexion I have even by my dermatologist at 73 years old
Disappointed in new formula
mbyrd68 from O'Fallon, MO
I have always loved this scrub. However just purchased new tube. No longer as gritty and no minty feel after rinsing it off. Will have to look for a new scrub.
Gotta have my exfoliator!

Deep cleans to make my skin silky smooth, gets rid of bumps and blemishes...
maygmz from Springfield Oregon
I love this scrub it works great for me. I've been using it for about 3mo now and the only complaint I have is the packaging...its a bit hard to squeeze out and the top lid broke after a couple days of using it
Great product, poor packaging
Michelle from Texas
I love this exfoliating cream. Even though it exfoliates, it does not feel rough when massaging on my skin. It rinses easily too and my skin looks clear and refreshed. The only issue I have is the packaging. Clinique needs to use a better quality plastic that's not so thick. It is so hard to squeeze out the product once it's getting close to running out and shouldn't have to use scissors to cut the tube to get it out.
It's for oily skin
Brownie from St. Louis
I'm returning. I have very dry skin.
Skippy from Lakeland
Used to have a super minty smell and made it feel extremely refreshing afterwards. Now it is very similar to the 7 day scrub.
wanted to love it but...
sam from Patterson
I've tried clinique products and they've felt good on my skin so I wanted to give this one a try but it turns out I'm allergic to it.
Love how clean this gets my skin!
Lisa from MA
I use this after my preclense and same at night. It's a gentle exfoliating scrub that doesn't dry out my skin or leave it feeling raw or red.
Chrisser from Texas
I exfoliate in the morning prior to my face cleaning routine. My skin looks so radiant throughout the day!
Has always been a great product, but the formula has changed
Kimmie13 from Savannah, GA
I have loved this product for many years, and I recently purchased this product again, and the formula has suddenly changed. It is almost exactly the same as the Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream, which I do not like nearly as much. The minty feel is gone, and there is a lot less exfoliant in the product. So disappointed since this is my absolute favorite product from Clinique.
Best product 2020

Use at least three times weekly for clear skin.
Worth the price!
Kay from Wisconsin
this exfoliator is excellent! I have extremely oily skin and this is the only thing that helps control it. it is on the rough side so dont scrub when using it. it does dry my skin (but makes it super smooth and clean feeling) so a moisturizer is a must. I used at night and usually by morning my skin is oily and it was not as after using this. I use clinique dramatically different oil control gel afterwards and it helps keep my skin moisturized without feeling greasy. I use this exfoliator 2 times a week and wash daily with the clinique facial soap for oily skin and the combo of the three is perfect for controlling oily skin! definitely recommend.
ARae from Spokane WA
I'm in my mid thirties and my skin is going thru it. I went from oily teen acne to combo occasional breakouts to dry skin falling off my face. I couldn't even wear makeup because no exfoliating could calm down my dry patches. If anything they got worse. An angel in high heels told me to try this when I was standing in Ulta looking pathetic and hopeless. The glow from her flawless skin left me speechless and nodding as I took the bottle. My skin is so happy. I want to go find her and hug her for saving my face. But I'll stay less creepy and just write this review.
Kerstin from Michigan
I really like this scrub. It makes my face so soft. I have sensitive skin but it does not bother me.
