My favourite mask for my acne-prone skin.

I adore this mask, something that actually does what it says, without breaking me out! My skin feels super smooth after use, not dry, not oily. I find that not only does it not cause my skin to break out, it helps to keep my adult acne at bay by keeping my pores clear of dead skin cells.

I don't have a problem with the 'glitter' particles, let's face it, most cosmetics/skincare have an element that creates a temporary positive effect; in this case, helping to blur imperfection and pores.

A little bit of this mask goes a long way, so I think it's good value for money. This will always be a staple in my beauty regime!

Tips

Leave it on a bit longer than the recommended five minutes if you have the time. I find that 15-20 minutes creates a great result. But, it's also handy that you can use it for five minutes for a quick pick-me-up.

Ideal for

All skin types, but especially those will acne-prone skin -- and anyone obsessed with exfoliation!

Instant facial for sure!!!

I love this product! My skin gets clogged in Winter but because I have sensitive skin, most exfoliants/scrubs are too harsh. This product is very gentle & a very small amount is all that is required. I usually apply it before I go in the shower, where it's easiest to remove. I have no issue with the glitter that others have mentioned. It is quite expensive, but as I said, only a small amount is needed & I only need to use it once or twice a week.

Tips

A little product goes a long way.

Ideal for

Brightening dull Winter skin, smoothing skin, improving complexion for a special occasion.

A superficial mask that is not really beneficial for your skin.

This mask is ok but it is incredibly superficial and overpriced. The light exfoliation is probably perfect for sensitive skin but if your going to compare the results to microdermabrasion then you better be able to backup the claim.

After use my skin feels slightly smoothed but quite dry. Also the shimmer effect is disgraceful. When I spend $70 on a product I expect the ingredients to be beneficial to my skin not superficial. Another overpriced dud from Clinique.

Not sure if this is right for me

I have used this product twice and both times it caused my skin to break out. I have normal/combination skin, so perhaps this isn't right for my skin type or perhaps I used it wrong.

Why does it leave a shimmer behind?

If I was after something that gave me an instant cell renewal, AVON's product which is similar to a professional microdermabrasion does the job for nearly half the price. My skin didn't feel as amazing as I hope it would be and I didn't like the shimmer in the product. I like the packaging though.

Wonderful

It's not often I rave about a product to my friends but I do about this product...

My skin feels incredible after using this (especially paired with the Turnaround serum) and I like the way it's a mask but also a killer exfoliant.

Unlike others, the "glitter" doesn't bother me and it's not even glitter, more like a luminous shimmer.

One gripe is how expensive it is (double the US$ price!) and for that reason I wouldn't use it the recommended 2-3 times per week. Still cheaper than microdermabrasian I guess and no downtime or redness.

Highly recommended.

Brilliant product, one of the best

This is an unusual, but brilliant mask.

It is applied as a thin layer, and you don't need to use much product. Immediately you can feel it start to take effect. It can take a bit of time to remove, so don't hurry the process, but it's more than worth the effort - after using this, my skin feels so very soft & looks healthy & radiant all over, including my sensitive tzone area. I love it - can't recommend it enough

B-in-B 2012

Turnaround Instant Facial really is like an instant facial in 5 minutes, which is great for when you are pressed for time. It contains some glittery bits, which can be a little hard to rinse off, but I can't hold this against the product, as it gives me such great results!
It gives the skin a really thorough polish, leaving behind softer and smoother skin and gives me a "glow". The other great thing about it is when Clinique have their gift with purchase offer, this product is enough to qualify for the gift, as you usually need to spend over $60, meaning you also get the chance to try a nice little selection of Clinique's other products too! This is a staple in my bathroom.

Best in Beauty 2012

Clinique's Instant Turnaround Facial is one of my all-time favourite face care products that leaves my face smooth, soft and supple.

This product is an exfoliating mask that you apply to your face for five minutes, so it can chemically exfoliate, before gentling working over your skin so that the lovely little exfoliating beads can do their thing and manually exfoliate. You can use as little or as much pressure as needed to clear pores and remove dead skin cells. I'll admit to being an over-scrubber so I am a little red after use but if I was more gentle then that wouldn't be an issue, I just can't help it if I'm using a manual exfoliant, I must SCRUB!!!

This product is oil free which is great for my combination skin plus there is no noticeable scent which anyone who has read any of my reviews will know is very important to me when choosing products, I'm so sensitive to scents that sometimes I may find a product that works fantastically but I can't use it because the smell gives me a headache or even worse, a migraine. I should also add that it's a pale blue, kind of like a lighter version of the tube colour which I find rather interesting, atleast you can see where you've applied it.

While not the cheapest exfoliant on the market, $68 for 75ml, a little really does go a long way. I have spent plenty of money on cheaper products only to find that the exfoliating beads are way too large and sometimes quite sharp so they really scratch my skin or the complete opposite where I can't even tell there's an exfoliant in there somewhere, either way they just end up gathering dust in my bathroom reminding me how much money I've wasted.

The only negative things I have to say about this product are that it comes in a screw-top tube, I really wish these companies would realise that flip-top is sooooo much easier in the bathroom, and that for some strange reason it contains tiny, little, glitter particles which can take a bit of rinsing off. Maybe that's not a bad thing as you know once the glitter is gone then so is all of the product...... maybe..... It really has me baffled why they've added the glitter and as annoyingas it is it's still not bad enough to take away a star from my rating. I just have to remember not to use it first thing in the morning unless I've got plenty of time to get rid of the glitter, I like to shine and not sparkle through the day.

If you're looking for a product that's both a chemical and manual exfoliant yet is gentle and easy to use then Turnaround Instant Facial is definitely for you.

Tips

Make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to wash off the glitter, you may need to quickly cleanse again before you get the all-clear =D

Ideal for

Most people as it's a chemical and manual exfoliator so you can rely more on one of those things if you find the other irritating.
