Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse Off Formula

Almost anyone who has any interest in beauty whatsoever has tried this product. Given away with almost every Clinique Bonus Time gift, the Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse Off Formula is the grandmother of exfoliators, I don’t know why it’s a woman, I think maybe because it’s efficient and powerful perhaps? It’s perfect for guys with a normal to dry skin type.

This product is almost as classic as the famously yellow Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion, and I believe this, or a tub form of it, launched in the late 70’s (if you know the exact launch, drop me a comment).

With a gentle cream base, this highly effective exfoliator is best applied onto dry skin before stepping in the shower, hence the name “Rinse Off Formula”.

Using only a small amount, work it gently into the skin, focusing on the forehead, nose, chin and beard area. It feels strange at first and like a thick moisturiser, but when rinsed off, your skin feels like silk.

We now know why it’s called “Rinse Off Formula”, but why is it called “7 Day Scrub”? Well, it’s so gentle that it can be used every day, 7 days a week. Normally you should use it less frequently if your skin is normal to oily, but for those drier skin types, put it to the test. I find every other evening is absolutely perfect as I use exfoliators in my toners and moisturisers and it’s very easy to go too far.

A classic and a favourite of so many. You can pick it up direct from Clinique here.
