Review: Avon ClearSkin Pore Penetrating Scrub


Anyone who reads my blog often, knows I love a good scrub, and I have to say that I am a sucker for scrubs. I will almost always find a reason to try a new one too. Oh, I spotted a hot chocolate body scrub at Zellers of all places, it smelled so good! I have to go back to get it. Anyhow, this is yet another Avon product that has been sitting on the "to blog" list for some time now, and I am finally getting to it.


A fine textured scrub that delivers

"Leaves skin feeling fresh & soft. Featuring pore firming technology and formulated with eucalyptus and witch hazel to cleanse and refresh. Lifts away pore clogging dirt and excess oil." -Avon

This product, being a scrub, spoke to me, but I was also drawn into it's "pore penetrating" claim. A someone with pores that are on the large side, I had to see if this scrub would do anything to prevent blackheads and keep my pores in line. This is a thick dry scrub, that doesn't look very scrubby or textured, but definitely delivers. Because this is a thick scrub you can get away with just a little bit and still get a good scrub. The texture of this feels very fine when on your fingers, but as you apply it to your face, you can feel a more intense scrub. It feel a bit like a salt scrub. I like that it feels like it is scrubbing, but is still not too harsh on your skin. This scrub also contains menthol, which leaves your skin feeling refreshed and minty cool. I never used to care for the cooling effect of face products, but his scrub has changed my opinion.

I am not a skin care expert, so I can't verify if this product has any ingredients that will actually "penetrate" pores, but I find that it does get in there and remove the gunk that clogs pores and eventually develops into blackheads. For $6.99 (on sale for $3.99 in the newest Avon book and here) this is a great scrub to have on hand. A definite re-purchase for me.

  1. Sounds refreshing! I feel like I'm being a know-it-all when I leave you comments (I'm not trying to be I promise!!) but skin care is one of the few things I know ABOUT haha! Salicylic acid is really one of the only things that penetrates pores to dissolve blackheads so if you ever spot a scrub that includes that, check that one out! Also, if you like natural products, Lush's Dark Angels or Coal Face does wonders for my blackheads! :)
