Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial Mask Review

Clinique is one of my favorite department skin care/cosmetic lines. Their range of products is pretty vast and I always spot things I would love to try out. One product I got a while back from Sephora was their Turnaround Instant Facial Mask. If you know me at all, you know I love masks. I love unwinding on the weekend by treating myself and masks are always part of the equation!
Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial Mask Review

This mask claims to deliver “all the radiance and smoothness of microdermbrasion – with significantly less irritation and stress to the skin” in a simple 5 minute application. It “promotes surface cell turnover on multiple levels to instantly unveil skin that’s fresher, more vibrant and even-toned.”
I love that it is a quick beauty ritual. You could use this mask for an instant boost before a night out if you wanted. The fact that it only needs 5 minutes on the skin and it causes barely any irritation or redness makes it perfect for when you are in a time crunch!
When applied to the skin, it comes out of the tube as grainy and a little rough. After gently smoothing it over the skin and letting it sit for 5 minutes, you are to wet your face with warm water and massage the particles over your skin to get the full microdermabrasion effect before rinsing it off. I find that it isn’t too rough. I don’t have that sensitive skin though, so I am not sure if it would be the best product for some one who finds it hard to exfoliate their face. I have been using St. Ives scrub pretty regularly so it didn’t seem bad at all to me.

Once applied, it blends into the skin pretty
well, but you get a  beady texture.
The scent is fresh and clean and it never once has caused irritation on me. Afterwards my face feels very clean but never stripped or dry. Overall I don’t notice huge improvements in my skin right after but I do feel like it is a great scrub when I want a dose of “luxury.” I think it has worked well as an addition to my skin care routine as I like to use it once a week. My skin has been the best it has ever been in my whole young adult life, so maybe this product is a a big component of that, but it is hard to tell. I think I just struck a good combination of products finally!
