My favorite facial scrub. Just rough enough to smooth skin surface and keep it glowing....The clinique face scrub is good for facial cleansing. I used about three times each week.

What it is:
A cleanser that clears the way for closer shaves.

What it is formulated to do:
This pre-shave essential sweeps away dead flakes and oil, reviving the surface as it prepares skin for closer, nick-free shaves. Ideal for all skin types, it contains rounded granules that won't scratch skin, helps reduce ingrown hairs, and easily lifts the beard. Skin is left clear, refreshed, and smooth.


Everyone in the family loves this facial scrub. Smells great, and feels even better!...The Perfect Scrub...This is one of the best scrubs I've ever used, if not THE BEST. I've used several different kinds of scrubs that did a great job of sloughing away the old skin to reveal the new, but some of the ingredients would cause acne and oiliness on my sensitive skin.

What it is:
A deep cleaning, pre-shave cleanser and scrub in one.

What it is formulated to do:
This scrub clears the way for an easier, closer shave by smoothing the surface of the skin and clearing congested pores. Menthol and vitamin C help wake-up and invigorate skin while small, highly uniform scrubbing particles open congested pores and sweep away deep-down oil, dirt and dead skin cells. Why bother? Because removing oil, dirt and dead cells helps the razor get closer to the skin for a smoother, easier shave. Getting rid of those dead cells also helps prevent in-grown hairs.
