Questions & Answers for Clinique Exfoliating Scrub

Question
If I don't use Clinique?
Should I use this if I don't use the Clinique brand as my every day cleanser, toner, etc.? I use the Desert Essence line everyday, but I'm wondering if this would be a nice "extra" as I don't own any exfoliating products.

I don't think it matters really. The product is an amazing exfoliator, I use the clinique 3 step, but when I need a clinique break, I use other products and still use the exfoliator. I think its a great way to get rid of those dead skin cells lying around. Hope that helps!

You may absolutely add this into your regimen, it will allow your current products to actually absorb better into your skin because you are de-flaking and ridding the dead skin cells off the top layers of your skin.

You will see a difference right away, just be gentle and work the exfoliator in small circular motions with your fingertips all over your face and neck, avoiding the eyes.

I think this product would be fine to use alongside any skincare regimen, not just Clinique. It's not a cleanser and doesn't lather up so it won't interfere with the cleanser you are using. It's not the softest most gentle exfoliator out there but it leaves a sort of cool, refreshing feeling on your face and neck when you rinse it off. I'm a huge fan.

This product will give a smooth tight feeling after use. You will want a moisturizer or a toner afterward. These may be where you address a combination skin issue. This is just a great all around cleaner. If your face is red or dry to the point of being broken you may not want to use this. If the combination differences are mild, it is a good product.

I have mostly oily skin but I get some dry/flaky patches on my cheeks sometimes. I use this and immediately.... bye-bye flakes! It leaves my skin soooo smooth. I have acne, so I make sure to LIGHTLY rub this over my face in a circular motion to avoid scratching my skin, since the beads are on the larger size and do not feel completely round. You probably should only use 2 - 3 times a week. Good luck!

The micro mini peel is a fantastic treatment but it takes more time and energy as it is a 3 step process and requires rinsing in the sink in between stages. the walnut scrub is nice to use in the shower as a biweekly exfoliator. I am going to get the mini peel again and use it when I have time as it REALLY leaves your skin soft and I think it minimizes my forehead wrinkles (not sure how, but i think it does!)

Question
What do they mean by active breakout?
In the suggested usage it said not to use on active breakouts. Do they mean your face has to be free of all pimples before you start using it? This is my first time trying the Clinique 3 step and I was looking for a scrub or a mask that I can incorporate into my routine. I have oily skin and a few breakouts right now. I was also concerned with dryness. If I use this product along with the Facial Soap (For Oily Skin) would it dry my skin out? Sorry for the long question. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

When it tells you not to use a product during an active breakout it's because most exfoliating scrubs have little granules or grains that come in contact with open acne & can transfer the acne or bacteria to other parts of the face. If the acne is not like an open sore or ready to pop at any moment - it should be ok to use the product. Hope this helps.

I think most products say you shouldn't use them with active breakouts and I assume it is because it can cause further irritation. I have used this product with regularity and often have a blemish here or there. It has not been a problem. On the days I use the scrub, I do not use soap as well.

answer 4
I use the scrub when I have breakouts, because I have oily skin as well, and it actually helps to minimize my breakouts, because my oily skin is what causes a lot of my breakouts. I don't believe your face has to be absolutely clear of pimples, because the scrub will help with those.
I suggest you use the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel after you wash your face, because it can dry your face up, but the gel will give you plenty of moisture without making your skin more oily like the moisturizing lotion will.
Hope I helped! :)

Not sure if this is the correct answer or not, but the formula is a bit rough. Thankfully, I have fairly okay skin, however around the time of my period I break out and find that when I use this when my skin is broken out it kind of irritates the pimple areas. I will admit, it does feel good when you apply it because this product gives your face a kind of "tingle" when applied which feels really good on the irritated areas, however I can see that due to the abrasive nature of the formula it may irritate your skin further. Not completely sure if that is what they are meaning though! I would maybe ask for a sample so you can try it out.

Using an exfoliator on a current breakout can cause additional breakouts. It can open your existing acne and you don't want that. It's like popping a zit. I'd wait until your acne is starting to recede before starting any exfoliator.

I don't think this product would dry you out - I've been using it for years through humid summers and dry winters - and have never experienced any kind of flaking with it.

However, the scrub packs a pretty intense minty-kinda tingle, so I could see where if you have any really bad breakouts that might be raw or sore... you'd prob want to wait until it heals a bit to put this product on. I don't see why you'd have to stay away from it if you just have some blemishes, but I would not put it on broken skin.

I think the active break out would just mean don't use the scrub on blemishes i.e. avoid them. I personally don't avoid any pimples when I use it and it doesn't appear to have a negative effect. I have not found this scrub to be drying in any way. Granted I have very oily skin and use the entire Acne Solutions 3 Step system plus the Acne Control mask. With all these I have yet to experience drying.

I use a lot of different products. Partially because different parts of my face need different things, but also because with changing weather, hydration, stress, sleep, etc. My skin needs different things. I do not use any other clinque products in conjunction with this. You do not have to use the basic clinque 3-step process if you don't want to. I totally recommend using them though if you have low-maintence, non-problematic skin. The 3-step are everyday/every skin products. They are no specific to any skin type and do not seem to be as active as other product lines. Hope this helps.

Please don't use any exfoliator that has granules - with open breakouts because the granules can become contaminated with bacteria from that breakout & can be transferred to other parts of the face & cause more acne.

My daughter has suffered awful acne over the last 3 years. DONT use this (or any scrub) everyday on your acne, since it would irritate it into trouble. I have found the gentler products to work best for her. The use of this would be best just once/week to slough off dead cells...not try to slough off pimples! Honestly, after having tried a thousand products (rx & otc) she's trying Proactive again after a year off it, and their new formula seems to be working great for her. (Sorry Sephora.)

Those tiny visible vessels are called telangiactasia's.
If you are prone to form them you may indeed see them with the use of a scrub product.
They will only become greater in number by use of these products. They can form due to age but if you notice them from the use of these products you should stop. Sun will also cause or worsen the appearance of these lines. You should always use a sunscreen and treat your skin very gently. Good luck!

I think it may just be a coincidence that you are getting the tiny blood vessel lines. I have not experienced that issue with this scrub. Maybe you are scrubbing too hard? I used to scrub too hard and it would put little "scratches" in my skin. Make sure you are using your fingertips with a gentle pressure when using the scrub. This may help to reduce the appearance of the blood vessels.

Those spider veins can be caused from being too rough with your skin. You can still use a scrub but just be gentle. They are also caused by sun exposure and hormones (pregnancy, etc.). I have the same problem and have had laser to get rid of them. It's not painful or expensive and it's very effective. I had to be careful with how I handle my skin or I just keep getting new ones. My derm said that even using a wash cloth too aggressively will cause them!

Blood vessels normally just show up with age. There can be other causes like stress, diet and so forth.

This scrub is topical and at most, it will exfoliate the dry, dead outer layers of your skin. It's not powerful enough to go any deeper. If that was the case, this scrub would be prescription only.

If you're still concerned about your blood vessels, it might be time to visit the dermatologist.

This is a good product, but like the other answers, you really have to be persistent to control blackheads. Use a product with salicylic acid (this product contains it) that you can wash with and also as a treatment to leave on your face - this will gently disolve dead skin that can clog pores. Use it both to get rid of the blackheads and then control your skin before new ones appear. Good luck!

Try heating up an abrasive small clean towel every morning before applying makeup and sunscreen. Leave it on your face for a minute and gently squeeze the areas with the most blackheads. After apply an exfoliant and scrub very gently for another minute then rinse thoroughly. If you do this twice a day, you should be getting rid of blackheads by the end of the week. Later only do this once a day. You might also use a drying mask once a week. Get a professional facial once every six weeks. Avoid all moisturizers, they are unnecessary if you have very oily skin. You can also skip toners with alcohol which will strip your skin. Try an oil free sunscreen for the face (Dermologica has a new one which is great).

I've dealt with stubborn blackheads in the past (and I've tried using tools to extract them, which didn't help very much), but with lots of time and patience, I've found that regularly washing, exfoliating, cleansing, and moisturizing my skin has helped me dramatically decrease blackheads and zits. I tend to get blackheads mostly in my t-zone area. But with exfoliating, I've noticed I've gone from many to just a few blackheads, in average about 3 or 4 sometimes. So my advice is, before resulting to extracting your blackheads with tools (which isn't good for your skin because it can leave scars), try regularly washing, exfoliating, cleansing with astringent, and moisturizing. The key is to do it regularly, as in every day, or if your skin is too sensitive then every other day. I would say if you have sensitive skin, exfoliate about 2 to 3 times a week. If you have combination to oily skin, I would say exfoliate every other day. If you have stubborn blackheads, I completely recommend this Exfoliating Scrub product as well as the 3 step Clinique skin care line for clearing up blackheads and zits. I promise if you keep up a good skin routine, you'll see positive results. The key is to have patience and be dedicated to your skin!

No ! This would be way too harsh.

no, it's not. choose smth else from Clinique for dry skin and better yet, try Josie Maran's products, I'm sure I'll find more use for dry skin in her line.

Yes because it will exfoliate your dry skin and get rid of dry flakes and dead skin cells.

I think this would be a bit too harsh for dry skins. I have really oily, acne-prone skin and I find that this is still a kind of harsh even for my skin type. So I don't think this would be appropriate for dry skin types. The 7-Day Scrub would probably be more suitable. This scrub is meant for really oily, flaky skins that needs a lot of exfoliation.

I have a combo type skin and it was too strong for me, therefore I personally wouldn't recommend it for especially dry type; ask for a tester size and try it on, i may be mistaken ))

this scrub is not formulated for dry skin but is great to use on it because its so smoothing and gets rid of flakes but you should use a moisturizer with it when my skin seems dry my moisturizer works better if i have used this scrub but if your skin is sensitive the 7 day scrub would be a better option

Question
Would you recommend this product for dry skin?
I've been reading reviews about how great the scrub is for oily, not too sensitive skin. I have dry skin that isn't too sensitive. Will this still be good for me? Thanks!

It's really a great scrub! It's for combo & oily skin. If I were you i'd just use a little moisturizer afterward, if needed. Although, I don't think you will you just get super soft skin!

I have oily combination skin, that tends to be dry during the winter. I can see where this product would potentially be too drying for someone with dry skin year-round, since it has a minty tingly property to it that might irritate dry skin. Have you tried their 7-Day Scrub?

I have combination, sensitive acne prone skin and I was able to use it every day without it drying out my skin. If there is any way you could get a sample from the store and try it out first, that would probably be the best way to figure it out.

Hope that helps!!

No, this scrub, for me at least, removes just about everything on your skin including all oils leaving it a bit drier...

I have combination skin. So i have dry areas on my face. I use it less then what the directions say. Avoid using it on the dry areas excessively.

my skin tends to be pretty dry in the winter months and i still use this scrub and find it just as beneficial as when my skin is more on the oily side. sometimes i do back of my use to every two to three days when its more dry -- and i make sure to moisturize well!
