Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula


RATING (out of 5 stars): 4.5 stars

COST: $18.50 for 3.4 ounces

THE SKINNY: Clinique has cornered the market with its 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula. The cream face wash has just enough exfoliators to make your skin feel super soft and smooth without making it red and irritated.

The gentle scrub washes all of the dry skin and rough patches away. This the the best scrub I have found (and I am a sucker for scrub face washes).

Clinique's 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula is an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner – which I have found is an almost no-fail sign of a great product.

Just be sure to keep the scrub away from your eyes (it will burn pretty bad) and Clinique recommends not using it on broken skin.

This scrub is really expensive though – drugstore scrubs are about $5 for 5 ounces. I don't see any reason for it to replace my normal face wash but I am using it weekly to supplement it. (Do you really need to exfoliate your face any more often than that?)

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. I am going to try to buy this at times when Clinique is offering great giveaways to get the most bang for my bucks.

CHECK IT OUT: Clinique has a wealth of other customer reviews and offers “expert” skin tips online.
