First Impressions Review | Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream with Microbeads

January 29, 2011

When I received a surprise gift trio from Clarins at Christmas, I had no idea I’d like the scrub so much. With just the right amount of resistance and glide, this facial exfoliator cleanses and massages the skin at the same time. I really like the slightly rough texture of the beads which gives my visage a satisfying scour without being abrasive. More than that, I love the stimulating sensation of the beads on my skin – a boost to facial circulation, certainly!

According to the brand, this is:

The ideal exfoliator with two types of micrograins that gently lift impurities and dead skin cells. Contains soothing mimosa tenuiflora. A rich cream formulated with two different types of micrograins – one exfoliates, the other purifies. Lifts impurities and dead skin cells and tightens pores. Contains soothing mimosa tenuiflora extract. For softer, more comfortable, deeply cleansed skin.

Needless to say, I’m almost done with the 15 ml tube I was given. Though it doesn’t have the fruitilicious scent of the White Plus HP Gentle Brightening Exfoliator, I am very tempted to purchase a full-sized one after I finish the latter. :)

      Hi Kas,

      I haven’t tried mine yet. :P I was very happy with this one, though. :)
