I bought this for my 75-yr-old mother because she had dry patches on her face. She wanted a gentle exfoliator, and this product worked wonders. The lower price was a great bonus, too!

No, I don't think this is like Exfolikate at all. This isn't a chemical peel; it doesn't have any glycolic or salycitic acid in it. This is basically just a manual exfoliator plus a hydrating mask. It isn't going to "deep clean" your pores or anything like that.
Sorry about that, I thought you had just misspelled 'exfoliate' . ExfoliKate is made for people who get acne or are acne prone. It has Salicylic Acid to help clear up pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. The Sephora Double Duty Exfoliator + Mask does not have Salicylic Acid . The Sephora Double Duty would probably work better for those with normal, combination, dry, or sensitive skin. It also helps to combat dullness, dry / flaky skin, and blackheads.
If you are acne prone, get the ExfoliKate. If you are just looking for a good exfoliator to help you with the problems mentioned above, then get the Sephora Double Duty Exfoliator + Mask.
Yes, Its an exfoliator, and more. Unlike some of the other products out there, this has round beads to gently remove old skin. Other products use fruit pits and/or crush nut shells in powdered or crushed form, that can actually cause more damage to your skin. These rough and jagged pieces can cut into your healthy skin underneath and make your good skin become dryer and flakier, faster. This can exacerbate the original problem you had in the first place. Just because an exfoliator is a higher price doesn't mean it is always better.
This Sephora exfoliator can also be left on as a mask to help hydrate your beautiful face, without leaving it feel greasy. I like this because it is a 2-in-1 product, it works, and you get more for your money. I know everyone's face and PH are different, but would ask you to give this a try. It is an easy and inexpensive way to try a new product without sinking a fortune into one that ends up disappointing you.
