Review: Clinique 7 Day Facial Scrub

Friday, June 28, 2013
Just another quick skincare product review - this is one of my fairly recent empties products but I think it deserves its own blog post because I am so impressed with it and I am going to re-purchase. 
I received this product as part of a free gift with purchase at Debenhams and I really don't think too much of free gifts with purchases on the whole but I ended up LOVING this product! 

It is a facial scrub from Clinique and I have tried Clinique skincare before and I have been fairly impressed with it (the three step range). The scrub is an off white colour, it has a lot of fine grains - it is not like the bead scrubs where they are mostly face wash, this product is all scrub! The grains/texture of the product is fairly abrasive but it is fine grained too so it is not that harsh, in my opinion.

I used this product about once a week (you shouldn't use it more than that as face scrubs can be harsh and damaging if you use them too often or incorrectly). I use a pea sized amount and gently massage it into damp/wet skin. The scrub really exfoliates and gives my skin a good ol' scrub. The scrub doesn't irritate my skin and it leaves my skin looking and feeling so smooth, soft and lovely - it also makes my skin texture feel more even. 

Overall, I LOVE this product. I find it has enough abrasiveness to really exfoliate and smooth the skin but it is not too harsh or stripping for my skin. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone, although if you have really sensitive skin I think it would probably be too harsh. x


  1. Ooo i love a good exfoliator, i have always liked clinique skincare.


  2. I love this scrub! You might also like the clarins one step gentle exfoliating cleanser (the one that smells of oranges) it has super fine grains in it too :)

    Great post!

    1. Oh I will have to try the clarins scrub :) x

  3. This sounds like a fantastic scrub. It's really hard to find the balance with not to abrasive but still exfoliating!


  4. I love exfoliators! They make your face feel so smooth and soft! I think it's great when samples turn out to be products that you love. :)

  7. Ooh that looks glorious!! I definitely agree with you about the free gifts...they're usually not very good and definitely get thrown to the side and forgotten about.

    But that Clinique exfoliator sounds amazing! I love that it's not too harsh of an exfoliator.
    I loved this one exfoliator I got in my Birchbox from the brand felt soooo amazing on my face and made it much smoother.

  13. My skin is fairly young (I'm nearly 15), is it worth the purchase for me to try it out? I'm a big fan of the more abrasive skin scrubs though. I love the clean feeling you get after

    1. I would not suggest abrasive scrubs as they can be damaging on all skin types - the clinique scrub is fairly gentle :) x

  14. On the contrary, I love free gifts and free stuff. I even join several blogger giveaways: D
