I first learnt about the CLINIQUE Exfoliating Scrub Gommage Tonique from Instagram. After that I was coming across some positive reviews about this product more often… Hell yes, I was curious to try it myself, so I purchased it.
Let me start off by saying that I didn’t expect any miracles to happen. I have combination skin that is sometimes oily. It breaks out quite often and my pores clog very easily.
What impact did this scrub have on my skin? Will I repurchase it some day? Keep on reading and you’ll find out all the answers
Volume: 100 ml
A little goes a long way? Yes. A single tube lasts 6 months when used twice a week.
Packaging: The scrub comes in a soft light-green plastic tube. The cap opens and closes effortlessly.
From the manufacturer:
Skin-clearing, water-based scrub for strong, oily skins. De-flakes, refines, softens tiny lines. Leaves skin refreshed.
How to Use
Use once a day, in the morning
Using fingertips, massage product onto skin in a circular motion, avoiding the eye area and lips.
Rinse thoroughly; pat skin dry.
Follow with your customized 3-Step Skin Care System.
TIP: Avoid eye area and lips.
Do not apply to active breakouts.
Attention! Do not neglect the last point!
The scrub doesn’t really work well when applied to breakouts. They would dry out slower (tested myself).
Ingredients (also indicated on the package):
WATER\AQUA\EAU • GLYCERYL STEARATE • POLYETHYLENE • HEXYLENEGLYCOL • DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE • DISODIUM OLEAMIDO MIPA SULFOSUCCINATE • MAGNESIUM ALUMINUM SILICATE • BUTYLENE GLYCOL • SALICYLIC ACD • MENTHOL • STEARAMIDOETHYL DIETHYLAMINE • OLEAMIDE MIPA • TRISODIUM SULFOSUCCINATE • SODIUM SULFATE • PHENOXYETHANOL • TITANIUM DIOXIDE (Cl 77891) [ILN36304]
Smell: The smell is very fresh and reminds me of peppermint. I think it’ll be especially enjoyable in summer.
Consistency: This product is very thick! At first I even thought that it expired and dried out. After reading reviews I calmed down, because this is actually the very texture it should have.
How to use?
It depends on your skin type! If you have dry skin, I don’t recommend you leave it on more than a minute. If you have oily to combination skin, you can leave it on 10 minutes and wash it off.
As for me, I prefer using this scrub twice a week. I apply it to my face for 5 minutes and then remove it by massaging gently.
After use I sometimes apply a moisturizing cream.
Use this scrub very carefully when close to your eyes (2 cm from your eyes is close), otherwise you're gonna have a tingling sensation due to menthol, which is not really enjoyable, so keep it in mind!
The scrubbing particles: They are perfect!!! I can’t describe them with any other word! They are not very gentle, but they don’t damage my skin.
Effect: The scrub exfoliates my skin like a dream and cleanses my pores well. I’ve noticed that my skin got obviously better, especially when it comes to my blackheads! Moreover, my pores got cleaner!
It definitely ensures the accumulative effect. You won’t probably see results after the first use, but there is such a possibility
I recommend you try the CLINIQUE Exfoliating Scrub Gommage Tonique!
Be always beautiful and take care of your skin!
Thank you for your attention!
