SO worth it

I must admit I was very skeptical when I first tried this, I'd heard lots of amazing reviews on it, but I was determined to not buy it because I couldn't justify the price. Not only that but I know that everyone has different skin types and with mine being combination/dry and sensitive, I try to steer clear of 'exfoliating' products in case the aggravate my skin. However, that said, I think it's completely worth the money! It makes my skin so soft and although I've only been using it for a few weeks, I can already see a noticeable improvement in the overall brightness of my skin. I use it once-twice a week, depending on how my skin feels and it makes such a difference. I don't find it drys out my skin at all but at the same time, it still does what it says and gives you a 'gentle' exfoliation. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone willing to pay the heavy price tag. « less

Great product.

This exfoliator is quick and very effective to use. Very gentle too. I am prone to dry skin with slight redness but I find this prduct as with all Clarins skin care gentle and light. Skin immedietly feels smooth and comfortable. Misty.

Perfect!

Like many of other reviewers, I usually use this twice a day every day despite the instructions. It hasn't had any bad effects since it's so gentle. I've been using it for about 3 weeks now, and my skin has definitely improved - it's a lot brighter (although I do use a radiance mask once a week which helps that), it's unclogged my pores.. but most notably, my skin tone is now more even, stubborn acne scars are starting to fade and my skin is a lot smoother. Even my Dad (who is extremely short sighted and doesn't have a clue about skincare) noticed a difference and was so impressed. 100% recommend.

Amazing results

I bought this because of the fruit acids it contains. I read in a magazine that AHAs were the right thing to use to try to get rid of those irritating white spots that clog your pores. I suddenly developed these on my cheeks a couple of years ago and nothing I did seemed to shift them. I tried this product and used it as per instructions (once or twice a week) but it didn't make any difference. I THEN DECIDED TO USE IT EVERY DAY AND .............IT WORKS! I have combination skin. It may be too harsh to use it daily on dry skin. Clarins also warn against using the product if planning to sun bathe. (I live in Scotland: sun exposure is not a problem!) I will continue to use this product. It's magic! The texture at first is rather surprising. I expect a toner to feel refreshing. This isn't. It is thick and gloopy and feels very sticky. However, it dries very quickly and does not leave a residue. I only use it at night. I tried it once in the morning, but as I wear foundation most days, it was not a good idea. Makeup tends to flake off. I suspect that twice a day might be too much anyway. If you are looking for a result, this is it. I can't believe how much my skin has improved. « less

Ouch new formula

If you have very sensitive eyes like me this new formula could sting them. The old formula was gentle and wonderful. The ingredients in this product have changed notably. Such a shame.
