The bits of apricot pit in these scrubs are incredibly bad for your skin. They tear open your pores, then the rich creams clog them. DO NOT USE THIS.

I could eat this stuff I think. Never have jus started saying. It works decent. I don't like how it leaves all the stuff in the shower afterwards.

This is an amazing product! I not only use it on my face but also on my arms. It smells great and your skin feels wonderful after you rinse it off!!

Love this product, but the beads seem to irritate my skin if I use it all over, so I have to keep it designated to just my nose. But it works great.

This is not good to exfoliate with. The apricot seeds are too big and enlarge your pores. The brand is decent for the money but beware of the scrub.
