I grew up using this. My parents always seemed to have some around. I think my love of Apricots has resulted directly from it.

This is a great drugstore scrub that won't dry your skin out. It's great for dry skin and breakouts and smells very refreshing!

I am an Esthetician and I can tell you that this stuff is bad for your skin! Do not use it on your face, it is way too rough.
