What a mouthful! I have been trying this body scrub for a couple of weeks and I thought I'd give a quick review. I must admit I'm not into body scrubs, so when I received this relatively large free sample of Clinique Sparkle Skin with my latest Clinique purchase, I wasn't quite sure if I was going to use it. The bottle I got was 30ml but if you buy it you'll get a 250ml pot for 50AUD.
The site suggests you use the scrub on rough areas like your elbows, heels, knees (er I don't remember my knees ever being rough but anyway...) but I have been using it as an all over body scrub, focusing mainly on my arms, neck and feet. It doesn't make your skin sparkly and the description on the website certainly doesn't claim to - it simply says your skin will be sleek and polished.
The scrub is quite rough on your skin and while fragrance free, I do get a menthol or minty fresh kind of smell from it. How it invigorates the skin perhaps. Overall I do like this scrub, my arms were very soft and smooth and it works a treat on the feet. Heh. I've still got a little bit left but I feel this is more of a luxury item rather than a necessity. I think this would make a nice gift.
Speaking of Clinique, the Australian website has free shipping with ANY purchase, using offer code CLTYPE1 (through to CLTYPE4, depending on your clinique skin type). But it ends 11:59pm 29/03/2010 AEST. You get free shipping and a travel size 3 step system. I believe it'll be those little round button packs. We'll see. But it's good because you can also choose other free samples when you check out.
