[REVIEW] Clinique 7 Day Scrub

Let's start this blog with the word exfoliation, which means the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface (from Wikipedia). This helps in shedding of the outer layer unclogs pores, keeps skin clean, and helps reduce acne breakouts. In layman terms, it helps in maintaining the skin at its best. Usually it is recommended to exfoliate 2-3 times a week to remove those dead cells on the skin. However, this product claims that it is safe to be used twice a day! I was a bit skeptic at first because scrubs are not meant to be used every single day, but I step up and tried it anyway. I have been using this product for one month now and noticed less breakouts on my face. Here is the full review on it.

7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula

Nudges away roughness, flakiness to refine skin. Helps lessen the appearance of fine lines. Clears the way for moisture. Suitable for all skin types.
  • Skin Types: All
3.4 fl oz
It has that creamy texture which differs from common scrubs

  • Texture is soft and creamy despite the presence of microbeads
  • It doesn't irritate my skin
  • It doesn't dry out my skin, but moisturizes it instead
  • It reduces my breakouts and blackheads
  • It is safe to use twice a day
  • It doesn't have any scent
  • It relieves the flakes that are sometimes present on my face

  • It takes quite a long time to exfoliate. I've read somewhere that you have to wait for the cream to go transparent before rinsing it off. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.
  • The full size might be expensive, I'm not sure since I only get the sample.

You won't be needing to use a facial brush in conjunction with this scrub because the microbeads are already exfoliating enough. Another thing I forgot to mention about this scrub is that it won Allure's Reader Choice in the facial scrub section.
