Today I’m reviewing a skincare product that I have been loving: Clinique Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliating Cream! I haven’t had this for very long, but I have used it several times already and am really loving it!
I bought this primarily for exfoliating my legs. My legs are ALWAYS dry, no matter what time of year it is. This makes it difficult to get a clean, smooth shave, even with exfoliating. Plus, because they are so dry, it’s difficult to even penetrate the skin with lotion or body butter. Am I making my skin sound like that of an elephant? Maybe, but it’s true!
Clinique Sparkle Skin is interesting in that it both exfoliates, but provides some moisture. The exfoliating granules are very fine and not harsh or abrasive. The base is creamy and soft, so while it is cleansing the skin, it is still very gentle.
The scent might be off-putting to some. It has a medicinal, herbal mint scent. This doesn’t linger on the skin. There is no added fragrance.
I honestly had some reservations about purchasing such an expensive exfoliating product ($26 for 8.5 ounces) when I could use something a lot more affordable and with more product, like from Tree Hut, but I love how this product makes my skin feel. Plus, I don’t have to use much, whereas when I used Tree Hut I was definitely scooping out more product compared to the Clinique scrub.
Clinique Sparkle Skin is definitely a winner for me and I will repurchase it in the future!
