Review: Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial Masque

A while ago, Clinique had a GWP and I needed to find something in their product range to make up the $60 to get the GWP (if you don't understand this, don't worry I don't even get myself sometimes). So I was going through their stuff trying to find something I will use. I came across this masque, saw the price $68 and thought 'perfect!' (I didn't care if it was worth it or not, all I could think of was getting my hands on that GWP).

According to Clinique "In 5 minutes, this high-performance oil-free facial delivers all the radiance and smoothness of microdermabrasion with significantly less irritation and stress to skin. Promotes surface cell turnover on multiple levels to instantly unveil skin that's fresher, more vibrant, even toned."



Availability: Clinique Cosmetics counters or online
Price: $68.00 for 75mL

Application: I just squeezed some onto my fingers and applied a thin layer onto my face. Leave on for 5mins, it dries kinda white. Wash off in warm water using circular motions.

Pros:
  • Very gentle - grains are not too course
  • Leaves skin feeling really smooth, exfoliated and refreshed
  • Didn't irritate me
  • No fragrance
  • Can be used on sensitive skin (but depends on your skin type, don't kill me if you react to it lol)
Cons:
  • Leaves tiny glitters my face after mask is washed off
  • Expensive but it does last for a while
     
Overall: I love this product!! The following morning when you wash your face, it is amazingly smooth. I would love to buy this product again but I'll probably wait for another GWP.

What exfoliator do you use and would you recommend it?

  3. This is interesting. It's a mask + exfoliator. I love products that can multitask! Perhaps I should try this. I have yet to find an exfoliator that I like. Thanks for the review! :)

  5. Thanks for the review. The glitter on the face is a little annoying but the effects sounds really good! It's very expensive though. I use Dermalogica's daily micro scrub which isn't harsh and works well.

  13. Thanks for the review! It sounds great, though the price scares me. I've never tried Clinique's exfoliator before, I usually stick to St.Ives Apricot Scrub!

  14. I recall trying something from the Clinique Turnaround range a year or so ago, but it was in a jar and it was a blue gel. This exfoliator looks really good though!
    The one I use at the moment is Skin by Dimitri James Microdermabrasion scrub. It makes my skin feel so fresh and clean!

  18. haha, GWPs makes me want to buy things too :) Currently I really love Origins Never a Dull Moment and Modern friction. But Clinique's sounds lovely and I like that it's fragrance free!

  19. i use dr organic hanuka honey mask, it's not a exfoliating mask but it helps me control the oil on my face and it's pretty much unexpensive! I've been wanting to try this one for clinique too but the price is a bit too much for my budget :c

  20. This sounds like a great exfoliator - I've never tried any of the masks from Clinique before. It is tempting to get it though, especially since they always have such great GWP offers :)

  21. I'm glad you love it, especially since it's a bit on the pricey side. I'm curious what was the GWP!
