Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Smoothing Facial Scrub, I thought I’d write you off but you aren’t half bad.
I dislike gel exfoliators with a passion. They always include tiny beads that slip around my face but never actually scrub away anything. This results in failing to refine my skin or make it any smoother/softer.
That’s why I was a little skeptical of the new Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Smoothing Facial Scrub.
But it surprised me!
Hey, look mom, this isn’t half bad!
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Smoothing Facial Scrub claims that it’s infused with Real Fruit Extracts and contains a formula with strawberry and yumberry seeds to gently scrub skin for a smoother, softer appearance.
I’ve expressed my skepticism about the “fruit seeds” in the past from some of Clean & Clear’s other Fruit Infusion Cleansers. And those, are actually what I dislike about these types of formulas. Gel based with little tiny beads suspended in the gel, no likey.
However, this new scrub actually seems to have tiny strawberry seeds in the mix which results in a grainy texture. This grainy texture provides light exfoliation for daily use. Drier skin types have to be very careful when exfoliating. Too much and you end up with even drier skin than you had going on. Too little and your skin looks dull and flaky. This scrub is easy enough to use daily in the shower without stripping or over drying skin.
The formula has a fruity grape-like scent that’s very pleasant. However, if you’re super sensitive to fragrance in your skin do be aware. I find the smell is quite intense and very, very sweet.
I’m cheap when it comes to AM cleansers that I use in my shower and this one is a nice cheap thrill that set me back $5 at Harmons. It’s gentle enough for most any skin type to use daily and offers an easy way to scrub away drier skin. Mind you it won’t completely eliminate super patchy dry areas but using it daily will result in a smoother surface. I wouldn’t give up my weekly exfoliator for it but as an everyday cleanser for use with or without my Clarisonic, its perfect!
