It's Okay Only If Used Right

Rielly

I don't mind this cleanser, the connivence of cleansing and exfoliating is great, though using it as a regular cleanser can be a bit harsh on the skin. For me i used this every 3rd/4th day, and using my ring finger to massage over the face to avoid micro tears in the skin. For what it is, it's okay, but I prefer using enzymatic / chemical exfoliant cleanser or treatments.

  2. Not my favourite exfoliating cleanser

    Rielly

    I did feel refreshed and cleansed after using this product, however the amount of exfoliation is a bit too much for my skin. It's a great cleanser to use ever 3rd/4th day (twice a week) to exfoliate the skin in an easy way. I'd recommend using your ring finger lathering this over the face to avoid micro tears into the skin whilst deeply exfoliating.

  4. accident

    Anita

    I actually bought this by accident and love that I did, I use this sometimes every 2 or 3 days and its gentle enough for that. Gives me a polished look.
  5. Not bad, a little harsh

    Tara

    Overall I don't mind this product but probably won't repurchase it. It does a good job of cleaning the skin however I'm not a huge fan of the physical exfoliating beads, they feel very rough and very harsh on the face in comparison to other similar products. I can see how this may be useful as a quick multi use option for short trips etc. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin and...

  6. good but a little harsh

    Bianca

    This product does the job although for my combination and sensitive skin, it was a little harsh for me. It left my skin irritated very dry and uncomfortable. I would suggest only using it maybe 3-4 times a week
  7. About to purchase for 4th time

    PLT

    verified purchaser
    I absolutely love this face wash. It is both a cleansed and exfoliator so for lazy girls like me, its a dream. I have mainly oily/acne-prone skin and this product keeps my skin so clear. Its notable when I run out and don't it for a few days :)
  8. Okay, but nothing groundbreaking

    Mardi

    verified purchaser
    Does what it says on the tin: cleanses and exfoliates. It didn't irritate my sensitive skin, which is good, however it didn't really do anything to improve my skin either, and there's nothing about it that really stands out. There are other options at lower prices which achieve the same results. Probably wouldn't purchase again.
  9. Love this range!

    Soph

    Love this range of products! Skin feels so clean and fresh after using this cleanser especially, love!
  10. very gentle

    Lena

    has a very soft scent that is very light and slightly sweet, very gentle of irritated skin and exfoliates without causing redness or more irritation, great product!
  11. So great!

    LEGray

    From the first use of this product I was amazed, a cleanser and a scrub in one but you dont feel dry or tight after using. This product is amazing, I keep it in the shower. I have dry/ part oily skin and this is very much suited to me.
  12. eh

    Elle

    This is just a fairly average cleansing scrub in my opinion. i see no significant change in my skin that i don't get from other cheaper products i have purchased previously. nice packaging but probably wouldn't buy again
  13. My favourite cleanser

    Moni

    This product is my favourite cleanser as it is easy to use, feels lovely, not my skin feeling beautiful with a fresh glow. I love the fact that I am cleansing and exfoliating at the same time.
    I highly recommend this product for any skin type.
  14. Awesome product

    Moni

    I love this product, I have normal to dry skin and since using this product my skin looks and feels lovely. It is so easy to use, and you feel an instant improvement in your skin and complexion.
    I highly recommend this product for any skin type.!
  15. Fine exoliator

    xthutranx

    This exfoliator is really fine, I recommend you actually rub it on dry skin because when my face is wet I find the exfoliator isn't harsh enough. Would be good for everyday use and for sensitive skin
  16. Worth it

    Pauline

    For the amount of product you get for the price, I'd have to say its a steal. It has fast become my fave daily cleanser used morning and night. My face feels thoroughly cleaned every time and smooths out all my imperfections. I'm also 8 months pregnant so my skin has been really up and down but I've found this product has kept my skin consistent. Would def recommend!
  17. Cleanser

    RT

    Love this product. Two in one making a quick, easy product to use. Feels nice on the skin and only need small amount.
  18. Ordinary

    P

    This product is pretty ordinary. It was an orange runny/sticky liquid with granules in it, it did feel nice on the skin but it seemed just as good as a cheaper exfoliator.
  19. gentle

    e

    I find this to be a really great, gentle exfoliator. It isnt harsh and cleanses my skin really well!
  20. Nice & gentle

    Angie84

    This is a nice, gentle exfoliator to use a couple times a week.
  21. love

    Catherine

    feels great on the skin - like its removing all my dirt and old skin but definitely not rough at all. smells good and leaves my skin feeling very soft
  22. amazing

    gul2

    This is one of my favourite exfoliator. This exfoliated makes my face feels so soft and clean after using it.
  23. Great exfoliater

    Lauren

    This ones a bit of a pocket rocket. Small but powerful. Its gentle yet effective. I have dry, senstive skin and this exfoliater was a great every now and then exfoliater
  24. Amazing exfoliator!!!

    Laelle

    Literally the best defoliator i have ever tried! really fine particles that are not too harsh on skin. Always leaves my skin feeling refreshed with a lovely after glow!!
  25. INCREDIBLE

    Lina

    I would like to be buried with this -that's how much I love it. I've honestly purchased this more times than I can count and it is by far my favorite exfoliator. It makes my skin super soft and is probably one of the very few products that reduces texture on my nose!! So incredible, highly highly recommend
  26. Leaves my skin feeling very smooth

    Abe

    I sampled this recently and was very pleased by how smooth it made my skin feel.
  27. Good cleanser

    Tmin1710

    I tried the sample first, and it was significantly better than a lot of other cleansers i have tried in the past. I have combination skin, which the product worked well with. However, certain parts of my face are more sensitive and it wasn't well suited to those areas.
  28. Gentle but good

    Brecky

    I like this cleanser as something to break up all my AHA/B products. It's just a nice, simple, exfoliating cleanser with a funky bottle and a bright orange colour! It's still a good scrub for my face and doesn't smell too strongly of anything which is great.
  29. The Cleanser to Beat all Cleansers

    BB

    I first received this as a sample and took forever to actually try it. I wish I had opened that little sachet sooner! It packs a punch and works as both a cleanser and an exfoliater all-in-one and the tiny little microbeads leave my skin feeling smooth and fresh. I have since purchased three full sized containers with no plan on switching products anytime soon.
  30. so impressive

    sally

    Another great product from the line. I found an improvement in my skin’s texture after regular use.
  31. Brilliant

    Juliet

    Brilliant cleanser that really brightens my skin and leaves it feeling soft
  32. Perfect for dull skin

    es

    Perfect for morning when skin is dull and grey looking. Adds hydration and energy to my skin and makes my skin look fresh and alive!
  33. Brightening cleanser

    B

    I use this wash in the shower when the steam opens up my pores and it always leaves my skin super bright
  34. Great for pre-makeup

    Abbey

    I use this religiously prior to fake tan or makeup, it ensures smooth application, really effective.
  35. A great gentle exfoliating cleanser

    Ellen

    I really like this exfoliator but I only use it occasionally when I feel like my skin really needs it. I have dry skin that is prone to some flaky patches and I find this quite effective at helping with that. I keep a tube in the shower and it lasts me ages because I don’t use it every day. I do find it hard to completely remove all the scrubbie bits sometimes because of how fine they are, I find ...

  36. LOVE 2 IN 1

    Tenille

    I like this cleanser because it is two steps in one. Anything that saves times by combining two steps into one is a product for me. The exfoliating is a gentle scrub that makes me feel like I am really getting my face clean. My face feels soft and smooth after using this cleanser.
  37. My favourite exfoliant of all time

    Lina

    I LOVE this stuff. You know those tiny clogged pores/bumps on your nose that won't go away, even if you've scrubbed the life out of them? Well this ACTUALLY exfoliates them and leaves my skin skin feeling BABY SMOOTH every single time. Its gentle and the little beads are so tiny that they'll get into your pores and actually clean them. Honestly my favorite product from the brand, along with their ...

  38. Gentle Yet Effective

    TCE

    Such an amazing product. I got a free sample sized pack and just tried it and LOVED it. Ordered more immediately. It's gentle to use daily but leaves my skin soft and ready for either make up or serums. Try it. No regrets
  39. Underwhelming

    Hollie

    I love Clinique products and bought the smallest size of this product to give it a try. It smells nice and has a lovely texture but i think for the price it is nothing special. Reminds me of a much cheaper drug store face scrub i used years ago by clean and clear. Probably wouldn't recommend for the price but it is a nice product.
  40. One of the more gentle exfoliating cleansers

    Ashley

    I don't have very congested skin but I do love using this once a week to give my skin a renewing polish, it's nice and gentle and has a refreshing scent - and fun packaging!
  41. Good scrubby scrub

    Klara

    This is perfect if you like a more intense scrub. You only need a small amount of the product and work gently to feel the effect. I like to use this once per week when I like to really exfoliate my skin.
  42. does a great job

    perfecting skin

    i got this as a 6 days sample pack and i have been loving this. unlike other exfoliating cleansers this one is very gentle on skin while still does the job. and it leaves my skin so smooth and soft. i have dry skin.
  43. Great product

    kate

    Great product! Great for sensitive skin. Very exfoliating. My skin is pretty dry but it doesn't dry it out too much.
  44. Ok nothing great

    Olivia

    Its a nice gentle exfoliator but its harsh when used all the time. I only use it about 2-3 times a week. My skin feels really clean and fresh after I use it and my face feels smooth.
    It has a really nice orange scent that I really like and the beads are gentle enough for my super sensitive sin.
  45. Love!

    Kels

    I received this as a travel sized sample and loved it so much I bought the full version. I use it every day as both my cleanser and exfoliator. Gets my mascara off without any issues and also leaves my skin feeling deep-cleaned and fresh. Minimises pores and has a lovely gel consistency that I love.
  46. Great product!

    Emma

    My skin cleared up completely while using this product!
  47. Great results!

    Alex

    I have REALLY sensitive skin, it is quite annoying. I've been suffering from a recent breakout, and i've always suffered from little(huge) bumps on my forehead. I've been using this product for maybe a week now, and the results are amazing!!! My breakout is receding, the bumps, barely there. My skin is SO much smoother, and clearer and brighter. This is my new favorite face wash!
  48. Feeling younger

    kristy

    Such an amazing product. I got a free sample sized pack and just tried it and LOVED it. Ordered more immediately. It's gentle to use daily but leaves my skin soft and ready for either make up or serums. Try it. No regrets
  49. Excellent facial scrub!

    Nelly

    I love this exfoliator. It's such a good price considering the size and it great quality. Would definitely recommend.
  50. My skin feels so smooth

    Emily

    I have dry skin and have always been plagued by blackheads. After not using exfoliants for over 5 years due to finding other types too harsh, I tried this product in my sister’s bathroom and it made my skin feel soft and smooth for days. I have since purchased from AdoreBeauty.com.au and my skin routine is so easy and simple, soft enough for every day use and my skin has never felt better. Love th...

  51. Good face wash/exfoliator

    Bec

    I actually bought this to use on days when I feel a bit lazy and don’t want to use the Clinique sonic system. I prefer this to the Clinique 7 day scrub. It’s more runny in consistency which means it’s lathers up better as a face wash.
  52. decent cleanser

    Gabby

    this cleanser does its job with cleansing and exfoliating the skin at the same time. i personally think that it's a good cleanser, but nothing really special about it. if you're in a hurry i think it will be a good cleanser/exfoliator to go.
  53. Amazing!

    L

    Used this product for the first time and it was super gentle on my skin and left it looking clean, fresh and glowy. Will definitely buy again!

  56. On the fence

    Kirsty

    I think this cleanser is aimed at a younger audience than yours truly. It's a good, basic cleanser but I hate the grapefruit scent and it just seems a bit... basic. Good for people who want a quick cleanse and exfoliation at the same time, but it didn't really suit my fussy combo skin.
  57. One of my fave cleansers

    Frankie

    Love this cleanser - the micro beads provide a soft exfoliation and the grapefruit scent is lovely. It's gentle enough to use daily; sometimes I use it at night as well. My skin feels clean afterwards, not dry or tight, and ready for the day! I've repurchased this already 3 times and will continue to. It lasts me about 5 months using every day - a little goes a long way!
  58. Feels great

    Krysta

    The texture of the scrub left me feeling very clean, as the cleanser foamed up when washing my face i was left feeling very refreshed and not dry at all. my go to scrub after a long hard day.
  59. Great in the shower

    Bee

    This is the perfect texture for the face. Not too rough and leaves skin feeling clean but not too tight.
