This "instant facial" in a bottle may sound appealing, but it isn't nearly as revolutionary as it's made out to be. While that may sound fancy, it essentially ends up being an expensive face scrub that imparts has a hint of sparkle we'll get to that in a moment and can be rough on skin—we certainly wouldn't recommend this for those with sensitive skin or rosacea. At that point, you're to massage this scrub over skin and then rinse. Truth be told, you get the same results whether you leave this on skin for five minutes or rinse it off immediately, so there's really no reason wait. The silicones in this mask help to slightly buffer skin from the abrasive scrubbing action of the diatomaceous earth granules, but you still need to use a light hand or else you can end up irritating skin via the gritty particles. The fragrance-free formula also features salicylic acid, but the pH is too high for it to function as an exfoliant.

Turnaround Revitalizing Instant Facial
When Val and I met up for tea, we talked quite a lot about skincare typical beauty blogger talk :p , and this was something she highly recommended. I searched high and low for it at many Clinique counters, but they were always sold out. It was only later that I found out that the Clinique was discontinuing the Minute Facial to make way for the Instant 5-min one. I decided to check it out on Strawberrynet instead.
Most of rinses off with the mask but yes, some shimmer stays on your skin. Yes, it will make you skin look more radiant because of the shimmer. The effect is like a very fine shimmery highlighter applied very lightly.
