Quick Summary

Overall, I gave this exfoliator 3.5 out of 5 stars.

My favorite thing about this exfoliator is that it also doubles as a cleanser. Not only is it a multi-purpose product, but it does both things well! I was very impressed with the results I saw from this product.

The reason I gave this 3.5 out of 5 stars is that although I loved the results, it does have some downfalls. I found the scent of this exfoliator to be extremely strong and a bit overwhelming. I also was not a fan of this product’s ingredient line up and price tag.

Detailed Review:


This product is a milky, orange cleanser. The very fine silica microbeads give the exfoliator a slightly gritty texture. I really enjoyed the texture of this exfoliator. It wasn’t too thick, nor was it too runny, making the application very easy.


This exfoliator has a very strong scent to it. In my opinion, it smells like a household cleaning product. I am a huge fan of scented products; however, even I found this one to be a bit overwhelming. If you are sensitive to scents or fragrance, you might want to stay away from this product!

Application Process

The application of this is exfoliator is pretty simple.

Before using this cleanser/exfoliator, make sure to remove any eye makeup.

To use this exfoliator, apply a small amount to your fingertips. In a circular motion, massage onto face avoiding the eye area. Rinse well with warm water.

One of my absolute favorite things about this exfoliator is that it doubles as a cleanser! Therefore, it’s recommended to be used daily.

The application of the cleanser was very easy. The product is the perfect consistency and foams up when applied making it very easy to spread across the skin. However, because I have oily skin, I always make sure to fully rinse any product off my face. I found the product left behind a waxy film that was difficult to rinse off. After rinsing my face multiple times, I gave up and decided to try to wipe it off with a towel. I was pleased that film went away when I dried my face.

Any Drying and/or Redness?

This product is gentle enough for daily use. I didn’t experience any drying or redness.


I loved the results of this exfoliator/cleanser!

I was very skeptical of this product before trying it. I LOVE the idea of a dual cleanser/exfoliator; however, most other duo products I have tried have fallen short in both aspects.

I was very impressed with how well this cleanser removed any face make up I had on. I was also very pleased with the exfoliating aspect of this scrub. Although very gentle, it did a great job removing any dry patches and refreshing my skin. After use, my skin looked and felt very smooth and bright J.


I was disappointed with this exfoliator’s ingredient line up.  First off, it has 35 ingredients, which in my experience I have found the less ingredients the better. I would cut this product a little slack being that is a multi-purpose product; except, when looking through the ingredients, the majority of them are synthetic. L For those of you who hard pressed to use organic products, this is definitely not for you!


Another downfall for this product is the price. Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser costs $37.00, which is on the expensive end for an exfoliator.
