Exfoliating face scrubs are necessary for healthy skin because without face scrubs, it would be hard to achieve the flawless complexion of your dreams. The daily buildup of dead skin cells will clog pores and prevent nutrients from entering your skin. Clogged pores can also cause blackheads and whiteheads, eventually leading to acne once infected. Prevention is always better than cure, which is why exfoliating is important to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, while also brightening your overall complexion and stimulating blood circulation.
A healthy skincare routine would involve exfoliating at least once or twice a week after cleansing your face. If you have sensitive skin, once a week would suffice.
Our Clarins Scrub Series are gentle plant-based exfoliators made with natural microbeads to suit your skin type. The Fresh Scrub is a customer-favourite for all skin types, especially normal skin. This refreshing cream scrub is packed with Organic Leaf of Life extracts that quenches thirsty skin, sloughs away dead skin cells and reintroduces radiance to dull complexions. It also smooths the skin with natural wood-derived cellulose beads. The larger beads exfoliate, while the smaller beads polish the surface of your skin to give you a revitalised complexion.
If you need an exfoliator for oily or combination skin, the Pure Scrub is a purifying gel scrub with lava beads and Alpine Willow Herb, an organic extract known to reduce shine and tighten pores so that your complexion looks radiant, mattefied and fresh. Its volcanic rock beads gently unclog pores and remove dead skin cells.
The Comfort Scrub is a moisturising oil-based exfoliator for dry or sensitive skin. The beetroot sugar microcrystals polish away impurities from the face and lips, while Wild Mango Butter comforts dry skin and prevents dehydration.

The Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream is a peeling cream with Great Burdock and Primrose extracts that eliminates dead skin cells and dirt without microbeads. This gentle cream also soothes and nourishes even the most sensitive skin. After cleansing, apply this to your dry face and neck and leave on for 1 minute, then gently smooth the cream into the skin. Finally, rinse off with lukewarm water before applying your toner.
If you’re in your late teens or early twenties, you can try the My Clarins RE-MOVE Radiance Exfoliating Powder. This gentle exfoliating powder is formulated with a blend of botanical ingredients such as Moringa, Rice and Bamboo extracts to detoxify the skin’s surface, purge impurities and purify the skin from deep within so you can have a smooth and blemish-free complexion. To apply, mix ½ teaspoon of the powder with water and lather it up before smoothing it over your face. The recommended amount is ½ teaspoon per treatment, but feel free to use a smaller amount depending on your skin type. Don’t forget to replenish moisture to your complexion after exfoliating. Be sure to apply a toner and serum to keep your skin moist and hydrated, and use a suitable moisturiser to seal the hydration and prevent moisture loss.
