          I normally don't buy anything without reading reviews first. Ulta was open for 5 more minutes & I had to make a quick decision. An employee recommended me her 'favorite' obviously I'm worried how much it'll cost then. Price wasn't actually bad, used it tonight, came here to check reviews and I'm super excited to keep using it. She said to make sure I didn't press too hard while exfoliating as many people do and it's not necessary at all with this. So far so good! Really liked it and I'm hoping it'll help clear up my skin that's been breaking out so much lately! I'll update later :)

            I bought this because due to the dry winters my town has, my skin has been so flaky along with its usual oiliness in my t-zone. I use this exfoliant twice a week and I have not seen a problem since I've begun to use it. It is a little hard to get out of the tube, which I have seen other people review. Other than that, it's a darn good product and is good for all skin types! Love Clinique!

                  Wonderful. I needed to add some exfoliation to my routine and this was a perfect fit. I can feel it de-flaking and sloughing off all my dead skin that won't slough off by itself, revealing fresher looking skin and considerably evening out my once-patchy skin tone. Can be used once or twice a week, but probably not more than that; effective but not overwhelming. A bit difficult to squeeze the product out of the tube initially.

                        Overall the product is good. It is definitely overpriced, because I have tried other scrubs from other brands, which are not that expensive, and they provide a softer, cleaner face result. You also need to apply a lookout of pressure to get the scrub out of the container.

                              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!

                              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!
