This has got to be the best scrub on the market, period! In the summer I like to walk on the beach getting my feet wet and full of sand as afterwards, my feet feel invigorated and smooth. The consistency of this face scrub reminds me of a very fine beach sand, mixed with a bit of water. The fact that there is salicylic acid incorporated into this scrub makes it even better! When applying, rub gently. Let the scrub do the work, don't rub it too hard into the face as the product can do the work by itself. That's one particular thing I love about this scrub vs. others on the market. Face gets a tingling/cooling sensation when using this scrub and has a nice glow/fresh appearance when finished. I find it's best to use at night before bed, and not before shaving as Clinique suggests.
I've used this for years and it's great but awhile back they changed the container from tall and thin to shorter and fatter. Because the scrub is quite thick it's impossible to get the last 30% of the Face Scrub out of the container without cutting it open. Does Clinique use its own stuff? Am I only one with the problem? The container works fine for products with more liquid content. This is a fail! Great product. Bad container design.

Have used Clinique Men's Face Scrub for literally decades - and absolutely loved it. It was absolutely the best scrub to exfoliate my fair skin. However, since they changed the formulation, I can't use it - it burns my skin every time. It is far too harsh. Don't know why Clinique would reformulate this product (and others) and jeopardize the loyalty of their customers.

Good Morning! As a woman who uses this scrub daily, I have to say I love it. I really miss the menthol smell and tingle, but the scrub itself is still very good. I will say that when I have purchased this scrub from Dillards recently, it feels different than the scrub purchased from your site. The Dillards (looks exactly the same) seems a little dryer and the scrubbing "beads" seem sharper. It kinda made me think they were selling a knockoff.
I do, generally, get my products from the website, but had a very sweet rep at Dillards so always tried to buy something from her, she's retired now, soooo….website it is!

I have used this product for 30+ years until recently after finding out the ingredients have changed. It's no longer the amazing product it was previously and all the local Clinique specialists at the dept stores were unaware of the change.

I'm a female who has used this product vs. the smaller-grained female-labeled version for more than 20 years. I just tried the new formula for the first time, and the significantly larger grains seem ok so far. Hopefully they won't end up causing irritation or not working as well over time. However, I'm so disappointed that there is no longer a cooling menthol effect and accompanying minty smell. Clinique, is there a way to bring that back? It seems I'm not the only one who misses it. If you decide to rework this formula, I'd love to participate in testing and feedback groups.

Not very happy with the new formula. The packaging is better but the actual scrub and grains are very different from last year's formula. The granules are larger and feel more like a body scrub than a face scrub. I'm seriously considering getting a refund and finding a new scrub. I've been using clinique for 32 years.. Since I was 18 years old. Very dissatisfied.

This face scrub is amazing, another wonderful product by Clinique! It removes all the dirt, oil, and dead skin to reveal healthy, soft, and smooth skin.

I agree with Quinn's review. I've been a user of Clinique's Face Scrub for probably 15-20 years and a recent batch that I purchased removed the menthol and the grains are much larger, resulting in a less enjoyable experience (doesn't feel refreshing anymore without the menthol) and the larger grains don't clean/exfoliate the skin as well as the old, sand-like grains that REALLY exfoliated well and made your skin soft and super smooth.
Clinique Face Scrub for Men has kept me truly looking young for my age, so I planned on always using it, but this new, disappointing formula is making me look elsewhere for someone to replicate the original, refreshing formula, unless Clinique brings it back themselves. Why remove the menthol when it reinvigorates your skin when using it and why make the granules larger when it results in a less effective scrub? Doesn't make sense.

I have been a happy Men's face scrub customer for over 10 years, but the new 2021 formula is disappointing. The grains are larger, it feels greasy, & no menthol. Would not recommend this new formula. Hope that the old formula will be available again in the future.

We have been using it for almost 2 years and my husband and I love it!
Happy customer from New Mexico
I originally got this as a sample and just bought the full size product. What I like is that it works great, doesn't have a scent, no left over residue, and no drying. It does exactly what it should. It gently exfoliates without irritation, breakouts or burning. Just a great easy to incorporate product.

Thought I would give this a try as the exfoliating scrub I have purchased for years underwent a formula change within the last year. This is the first Clinique product that didn't live up to my expectations.

The mens face scrub has been my ABSOLUTE favorite Clinique product that I've used RELIGIOUSLY for many, many years. It's the only cleanser/scrub that keeps my skin clear from minor, hormonal acne breakouts AND leaves my skin feeing SO soft, fresh, and tingly. The scrub particles have always been VERY FINE and DENSELY PACKED. I prefer it to the "non-mens" scrub (though I've heard they're the same) and find it superior to the 7 Day Scrub. Even though it's a "mens" product, it's always been gentle enough for my skin. It contained some salicylic acid for acne but not as much as products specifically for acne. Plus just the right amount of menthol makes my skin feel fresh & tingly.
**UNFORTUNATELY, after unpacking and using this scrub from my recent order... I was SO disappointed & upset to find that my fav product has been reformulated SO drastically that it's now UNUSABLE. Honestly, I don't know how it could be usable to any face—even men's— not just mine. Those very fine, densely packed scrub particles have been replaced by what feels like gravel. That fresh, tingly feeling is completely gone. And the icing on the cake: after ONE use of this new formulation... I had little tiny red dots all over my face (like petechiae) because it was SO ROUGH. Also unfortunate is how difficult it is to reach a human at Clinique to process a refund or exchange. Emails go unanswered indefinitely, and the "open" hours for customer service are not compatible with my schedule. Bottom line: do NOT use this new formula face scrub.
Don't get from Ulta because bad shipping from Laguna Niguel, Ca
This packaging is smaller and just as expensive, that was disappointing

LOVE this face scrub! Have been using it off & on for 30+ years. I've tried other scrubs from most of the prestige skincare brands & I always come back to this Clinique face scrub for men. The 3.4 oz tube lasts about 1 month with 2 people using it daily.
HLee from New York
This is my favourite scrub and Ive been using it for years. My latest order arrived yesterday (11 Nov 2020) and they changed the formula! The menthol (which gave the tingly refreshed feeling) is now gone - nooooooooo! :(
MiamiPrince from Miami
I've been using this product for 20+ years. It has been the BEST product on the market. Nothing compared to it's quality. They recently changed the formula and now it's just like everything else out there. Less microfibers and just doesn't work like it used to. Such a huge disappointment!
As889 from PA
Both my husband and I love this product. Please don't get rid of it Clinique. Great to help with mascne from wearing a mask all day long and with black heads. Gritty texture seems to get all the dirt and oil in pores.
GC from Indiana
This is the best face scrub I have used. it just feels different than other brands and you can tell the difference when you first use it. It is a bit thicker than other brands, which I think is a good thing, and doesn't skip on the exfoliants. This is by far my favorite Clinique product.
Ed from MS
So my GF introduced me to clinique, first with the moisturizer and then with this scrub, I used to have rash after shave but this has helped me a loooot!

I have to admit that I buy this scrub for myself. I do like the texture and results are great and visible on my skin. It feel sooo clean!
Gemini from Delaware
It keeps my skin in good condition every day.

My boyfriend loves it !! Makes your skin super clean and doesn't irritate
Jimbo from Palm Springs, Ca.
I've rediscovered the Face Scrub after a looong break. Same smell and feel I remember. My slightly older face loves it more now than ever. Great item!!
GirlFromSFL from FL
My husband likes this face scrub! Good job Clinique!
Ed from Michigan
I love using this, particularly before shaving. It's also not as abrasive and rough on the skin at other brands and rinses off easily. The only con is that the container makes it difficult for it to come out. I'm not sure if it was the product inside the tube or if it was the tube itself but you really have to squeeze to get it out.
