Drugstore Discoveries: Clean & Clear Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub Review

October 27, 2008

It’s been years and years since I’ve laid hands on a Clean & Clear skincare product, but this little tube of goodness came attached to Clean & Clear’s oil absorbing papers (a spur of the moment purchase) so I decided to give it a try.

I’ll admit that I’m horribly snobbish when it comes to beauty products. I tend to prefer high-end expensive products just because I find that they usually work better for me, but Clean & Clear’s Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub is pretty wonderful and a serious bargain at only $4.99!

While this is an exfoliating product, it’s gentle enough to use as an everyday cleanser since the exfoliating beads aren’t that harsh, nor are there that many of them. Yes the exfoliating beads could be a little smaller, and if you wanted to use this as a weekly scrub rather than a daily product, you’d probably want for there to be more of them, but all in all this is a remarkably good product.

I like to use this in conjunction with my Clarisonic because even though they recommend that you not use it with scrubs, this one really is gentle enough for my skin, or just on its own when my skin is feeling a little scaly. The Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub gives off an intense cooling sensation that I love and really leaves my skin feeling cooled and refreshed in the mornings.


I just had to come back and add one thing–there’s a cream cleanser from this Deep Clean line that’s absolutely TERRIBLE so stay away from it!
