Ingredients

- Key Ingredients:
• Apricot Fruit Extract: We adore these fuzzy fruits. Depending on the season, you’ll find us in either sunny California, or somewhere in North Africa, picking out the juiciest ones. It’s how we get the fragrant extracts and kernel oils we want for our scrubs and body washes.
• Walnut Shell Powder: Crushed walnut shell powder is the gentle-yet-effective secret behind many of our scrubs. After harvesting the walnuts in California, we carefully mill them to just the right size for a deep but thorough exfoliation.

I would only use this once a week or less on my face as I am older and now only have T zone greasiness. I do prefer Lush scrubs but this is one that keeps well and I do use on my nose area as I have quite large pores and want to ensure they are cleaned and also to get rid of dead skin.
This brightens and tones my skin and I also use it on the tops of my ams and under my boobs where my bra sits as both areas get slight raised skin there and I like to try and keep my skin smooth.

It is quite scrubby, the apricot shells could be harsh on some skins.

I really liked this product for it's no nonsense approach. It's a scrub that is reasonable priced, smells great and will give your skin a boost if used regularly .
Last year I received a free tube to trial and I loved it. Not just because it was free; which was great. But for the instant results it produced. My skin felt softer and appeared brighter. I liked the texture of the scrub and felt that it went to work soon as I applied it.
This is a staple product in my bathroom now.
