your thinking of the Clarins gentle peeling scrub. i actually got that as a gift and to be honest i really don't like it. i prefer the gentle buffinf cream from caudalie as it is way more effective and gentle. use this on a damp face and scrub is small circular motions, be gentle, if you have sensitive skin you can also mix this in with a cream cleanser

Hi, This cleanser is meant to be used with water or you can even add a dime size amount to your cleanser and use together. You then rinse with water and follow with the rest of your regimen.
I was told in-store to put the buffing cream on my face and then rub it off. But I have dry and sensitive skin so I wet my face and then scrub it on and wash it off like a face wash. Still does the job! If you feel like you need a little more exfoliation grab a sponge and use that to scrub it onto your face.

No. You apply this to clean, wet or damp skin, rub it in, and rinse it back off. I don't know what one you dry buff with, but I wouldn't think that would be good for the skin on your face.
This is effective and gentle, rinses clean, and won't damage your skin.

Absolutely not. Must use with water, your first time may leave your skin a little red from the natural exfoliators. If you live in a dry climate I recommend using it twice a week in the shower, thus you make sure you wash all of the product off. MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS, for you will irritate your skin. But this is the best product I have ever came across for exfoliators. And as well only use less than a dime sized amount each time.
Hope this was good advice. :D

Yes, that is what I understand and how I have been using it, but it does not seem to matter much if you wait very long. I have found the main issue is not having your skin be very moist when you start. I rinse it and leave it just a bit damp, then start rubbing in the cream. I only wait about 10 secs to let it dry.

No, it is meant to be used with water as an exfoliator. You are thinking of some sort of mask--many brands make masks.
