      superb facial scub!

      I bought this Clinique scrub along with some other Clinique goodies at Debenhams, when they had the Clinique bonus time promotion. I think you had to get 2 face care products and you'd receive a beauty case with 5 products inside absolutely free. I thought this was a good deal, and since I already use the Clinique 3 step system, thought I could add a scrub to my beauty regimen, as my skin would sometimes not feel as smooth as it would like it to be.

      This scrub has been tested by dermatologists and is also fragrance free. This is one thing that I absolutely love about the Clinique face care range, as I have experienced discomfort with perfumed creams and washes in the past.
      I use this scrub twice weekly, just before the liquid facial soap. I like to dampen my face and then squeeze a tiny amount into my hand, then I rub it in and gently massage my face for a minute or so. I then rinse it off with lukewarm water and I find that it comes off quite easily. It does make my skin feel a lot cleaner, softer and smoother.

      This is definitely one of my favourite facial scrubs and I will most certainly buy again!

      Try it, you might like it!

      Clinique skin care products need no introduction. Their raging popularity is clear evidence that the products actually work. Clinique exfoliating scrub is in my mind the perfect scrub because it is effective and removes those annoying and unattractive skin flakes which make your foundation look horrible!

      After using this scrub, the results were that I had more radiant and smoothed skin. What I like about this product especially is that it is very effective in removing the flakes of dry skin patches but is not at all harsh and is gentle enough that it can be used daily if necessary, which for me is a real bonus as I seem to get recurring patches of dryness, particularly around the nose which is very annoying! On application, there is a refreshing and light tingle which I find quite pleasant. I also found that it made my skin look brighter and more glowing. I felt ''cleaner'' after using it and it certainly made make up application easier and smoother.

      My only quibble, as with many luxury beauty brands is the price, it sells for about 15 pounds in the UK I believe, however it can be bought for a significant amount less in the USA, especially in airports - ladies and gentlemen if you are ever in a US airport I would strongly urge you to stock up on Clinique! Or if not, the Bonus Time at the counters in department stores is not bad either.

      All in all I'd strongly recommend this product, especially if you ever get dry patches of skin e.g. flakes around the nose which look bad enough anyway, but really show up when you wear foundation - nightmare! As usual, Clinique products are generally suitable for even sensitive skins, which is a huge bonus! Definitely worth it.

        HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD EXFOLIATING PROPERTIES.

        *****Clinique Exfoliating Scrub*****

        I don’t really go in for a lot of these high class beauty regimes – I’m not a big fan of makeup, or indeed anything else that seeks to cover up a woman’s true beauty. I think our beauty is more about who we are as women, than whether we have long eyelashes, perfectly curved eyebrows, and ruby red lips. A lot of women’s decoration has come about as a way to attract and appease men, and whilst I’m not against feeling attractive to the opposite sex, I don’t think our womanly attraction or beauty or appeal can be applied with a mascara wand or a lip brush. What I am for, is clean, smooth skin, that makes ME feel good, never mind anyone else, and which makes me feel soft and womanly all on my own. The two products I use on my face in the bathroom every morning are Clinique Foaming Face Wash, which I’ve already reviewed, and this, Exfoliating Scrub, which is the best damn exfoliating product I’ve ever used and which in my opinion is worth it’s weight in gold!

        *********************************************************************

        *****About the Product*****

        The scrub is contained within a long slender tube, a little like an oversized toothpaste tube, though not as fat and wide as the face wash. The tube is that lovely fresh leaf green colour that is synonymous with Clinique products, and the total amount contained within the tube is 100ml. The tube has a flip top cap, and when you open it, there is no scent at all, unlike the face wash which smells very herbal and planty.
        The scrub is white in colour, and has a very fine grainy texture.

        *********************************************************************

        *****Using the Product*****

        I usually use this about twice a week, sometimes more often, and always in the shower, as I don’t like having grainy bits in my bath. To be fair, I probably wouldn’t notice them, as they are very, very fine, but hey, that’s just my little routine! The texture of the scrub feels great when you apply it to slightly damp skin – it’s like really thick toothpaste, and actually has a minty sensation on your skin. This is caused by the menthol, which leaves your skin very slightly tingling with freshness.

        To use, I put a ten pence sized blob in the middle of my palm, and then rub small amounts of this all over my face. I then, with the pads of my fingers, massage my face in small circles all over, though taking care near my eyes, as the skin here is thinner, and doesn’t need exfoliating really.

        I use this scrub before the face wash, and feel that they complement each other perfectly. After using the scrub, my skin is always smooth, with no dryness, just perfectly hydrated. I find it helps very much if I have blackheads or the odd spot, though I don’t have much trouble with either as long as I use these products regularly. The finished effect of this scrub leaves your face feeling literally polished smooth, with every pore cleansed and grit or grime just washed away.

        *********************************************************************

        *****The Cost*****

        This is not a cheap product to buy, but I find that as I use it only a couple of times a week, I can make a tube of this last for months on end. I have tried other brands of exfoliater, and even sometimes make my own at home, but this one has to come up top of the high street products I’ve tried. It will cost you £15.00 for a tube, and it is designed apparently for oily skins. I don’t have particularly oily skin, but imagine this would be perfect for anyone who does.

        *********************************************************************

        *****Where to Buy*****

        I usually buy my Clinique products in Boots, always waiting till they have a “buy 2 products get this lovely free stuff for free” offer on! Other department stores like John Lewis, Fenwick and Debenhams stock it too, and I don’t think there is much difference in the price. If you go online to the Clinique website, you get free samples of various products when you order from there.

        *********************************************************************

        *****Final Thoughts*****

        I really love this product – it makes my skin feel wonderful, which in turn makes me feel super confident about how it looks. I think that using this, together with the face wash, and the fact that I don’t often wear makeup, keeps my skin looking much younger than my years! And that is surely worth paying £15.00 a shot for!!!!!

        Thank you so much for reading! Kate x
