Can anyone recommend a great facial exfoliator?

I have been using Clnique Turnaround Concentrate for just about a week now, and I see no results. the online reviews I read about this product were SO great. many women claimed that after only a few days, they saw a difference - pores shrank, lines less visible, more even skin tone, etc. I see none of that Chat Icon I will keep using it though, until my sample size runs out.

I am willing to spend for a product that works well.

any rec's are greatly appreciated! thanks

Have you ever tried Paula's Choice products? I use the 2% BHA liquid.

I also find Makeup Alley to be a great resource for product reviews. I always check there before buying anything!

Paula's Choice is popular on MUA. I really like her skin care line. Paula's Choice The shipping is also very fast too!

It's not an exfoliater, but I've heard great things about the Clarisonic facial cleanser machine. It gets EVERYTHING out of all your pores and fine lines, etc., so that whatever creams, lotions you use are able to really penetrate your skin. Also, since it's getting everything out of your pores, they shrink (since they're not clogged with anything which makes them bigger etc).

Anywho, it's expensive but I am dying to get it!!!

I really like the Mario Badescu Almond & Honey face scrub. It's pretty gentle - it doesn't feel scratchy - but I notice a big difference when I use it. My complexion kind of brightens up, you know? You use it 3x a week and one jar will last you six months:

Give Clinique Turnaround Concentrate a few weeks at least, if not a few months. I have been using this for over a year and half and it has REPLACED my dermatologist cream. But it really did take a while til I started to see a difference.

I also use St Ives apricot scrub, very old school and works well (just be careful if you have very sensitive skin).

I will finish off the 1/2 ounce tube of the Clinique that I have (that's 1/2 the size of the full retail bottle). it's good to hear you're having such positive results from it.

I bought Aveeno "Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads" at Target over the weekend and I really like it so far. it feels SO good during and after I use it.

I guess b/c the turnaround concentrate is more of a cream that you put on and don't wash off, I feel like it's not a real exfoliator, even though that is the category it is sold as. but like I said, I will keep using it until I finish what I have.

I love Laboratoire Remède Sweep. It's a bit pricy, about 50 bucks, but the tube has lasted me almost a year. I use it about once a week or so.

I do as well, they even have one for sensitive skin but doesn't work as well. I just have to wash after or sometimes I break out.
