sorry for the stock picture - mine is in the shower & a bit wet!I've used this for about a week now (about 3 separate times) and here are my thoughts.
First of all, the consistency is quite thick and comes out of the tube looking like a white cream. It is very hard to see if there are any scrubby bits, unlike the 24.7 where the granules are quite large and have a tendency of almost falling off your face as you apply the scrub, this is more like a mask. The cream has within it lots of tiny little micro-particles that feel a bit like sand, but it doesn't hurt as you apply and rub it over your face. I feel with this I can cover all parts of my face without having to worry about the scrub getting into my eyes (as I tend to apply my scrubs in the shower as I'm a bit messy) since the scrub remains cream-like and doesn't instantly dissolve in water.
After leaving the shower, my skin doesn't feel a bit tight like with the 24.7 scrub, it feels really soft! I feel like the top layer of skin that may have been dry/dead has been removed but it hasn't gone and sucked out all the moisture out either and I haven't broken out from the product either so my sensitive skin gives this a thumbs up.
It's weird as I've been using MAC products for a good 5 years now but only just now tried this facial scrub, or shall I say, refinisher - and whether or not I'm the last person alive to do so, I really like it!
Have you tried the MAC Microfine Refinisher? What are your thoughts?
