”I have to say i really like this scrub it gets all my dry skin in tip top shape. My skin is super soft after the only reason I gave 4 out of 5 is sometimes if I use it to many days in a row it dries my skin out so i usually skip a day then go back with it.”

Clinique was born from high-profile New York dermatologist Dr. Norman Orentreich’s belief that you can get great skin with the right products. Believing in the good doctor’s visionary philosophy, the Estee Lauder family recruited him to create a new beauty line that brought about the 3-Step Skin Care System—cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing—and gave rise to the now iconic beauty brand. Today, millions of women trust Clinique and its dermatology-tested, allergy-tested, and fragrance-free line of products.

The gentlest exfoliater for sensitive skin

This exfoliator is the gentlest I have ever tried. It contains microbeads that does not wound your skin in any way even if you scrub it on your face with a harder pressure. If you are someone who loves St. Ives, then I vouch that you will love this Clinique Pep-Start Exfoliating Cleanser mooooore!

Superb Product and It's Worth the Money!!

This is part of the Clinique Pep set that I bought from a Clinique shop. Well, I love St. Ives and other facial scrubs, but this one is better! I mean, the best!!! What I like is that it has tiny grains that can really remove gunks and my face looks squeeky clean afterwards. I follow it up with its partner, Clinique Pep start Hydroblur Moisturizer for the face and Clinique Pep Start eye cream for the under eye area. Since, I have an oily skin type 😐, I use this thrice a week to prevent my skin from irritation. Although it's pricey, but I think this little tub will last me more than six months because you just have to squeeze a pea size for the entire face. A little squeeze goes a long way.

Preps and exfoliates

This cleanser and exfoliator in just one product is great for that quick scrub. I like it on my T-zone to scrub those blackheads away. It refreshes my skin after wash. The beads are not so gentle, just the way scrubs are but it targets the pores and makes deep seated dirt go away. This is allergy tested, and I know all Clinique products are, so rest assured this is also for those who have sensitive skin.
