4. When you’re done, rinse and pat dry with a clean towel.

5. Use 3 to 4 times a week (depending on skin) for best results.

I love this stuff it smells so good, it is just a tad bit ruff. I know that it is a scrub but for me personally it irritated my skin.

ABSOLUTELY DO NOT USE THIS SCRUB!!! The apricot seed witching this is way too harsh for your face and will only leave you with scars
