    Makes your face smooth and silky and glowing! The best exfoliater I've ever used. Tried others, but they can't compare to Clinique Exfoliater!

      Comments about Clinique Exfoliating Scrub:

      When I first tried this scrub I used way to much (quarter sized amount) and I hated this product. I gave it one last try since it had such great reviews and I now love it! I use only a pea sized amount with warm water and gently scrub all over. It does smell very minty but if you use only a small amount it's not bad. The next day after using my foundation glider on top and looked smooth. It also seemed to make my make stay on a little longer as well. Overall if you use this product correctly it works great!

      Pretty good

      By EriB

      from Edgewater, NJ

      Comments about Clinique Exfoliating Scrub:

      I was looking for a good exfoliator with a scrub that wasn't too rough and not too soft that wasn't over $30 and this was just perfect. I love the roughness of it. The only reason why I'm giving 4 stars is because no matter how many times I rinse my face I always have pieces of the scrub left on my face since they're sooooo tiny! But other than that I like it

          Tonight was my first time using this and I immediately loved it. I purchased this item to exfoliate my cheeks,upper lip and neck area before using an epilator to remove hair. Not only did it raise the hairs still under my skin that had not yet broken through it also left my entire face brighter looking and smooth.

              The Clinique Exfoliating Scrub is my absolute faaavorite! It's pretty harsh for a scrub, but that's why I like it! I do not recommend for sensitive or dry skin, but perfect for oily gals like myself.

              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!

                    • Q:

                      If I use the 3-Step system, what does this provide that the clarifying lotion does not? I thought that Step 2 did exfoliate. Would this be beneficial if only used once a week so you don't "over exfoliate?" Thank you!

                        Hi! This is an exfoliating agent, so it will help to improve the texture and tone in your skin. If you are looking for something that will actually fade dark spots on the skin, you should try Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. When used twice a day with a sunscreen, it is clinically proven to lighten dark spots by 1-2 shades. It is the #1 selling dark spot product in the world and I believe you will enjoy the formula. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
