I find that this is much too harsh for the face. In general apricot is too rough for facial skin. As Marie L. said it will create micro-tears.

I use this product to exfoliate my skin once in a while. I dont know if it does anything for me but maybe it can do something in the long run.

This product is okay, but I found my skin to be very dry after using! I suppose a good moisturiser after would be definitely needed in my case
