You could be forgiven for thinking that this exfoliator has come straight out of a science fiction movie! It is possibly one the brightest weirdest coloured products I have used! The product is a creamy gel based exfoliant which is almost fluorescent green and colour and contains particles of crushed apricot stones which are brown. The fragrance is not too overpowering and has the typical tea tree scent with a touch of zest. When used on damp skin I found that there were not enough particles to give a good exfoliation which was a bit disappointing! The product does not foam but it does feel unbelievably refreshing on the skin and it effectively removes dirt and grease. After rinsing away my skin felt a little tight but could be rectified by a moisturiser.
This exfoliator was not to impressive for me and although I would never allow her to use it, my niece got more fun out of squirting this into the sink and admiring its weird colour than I did using it on my face

Strongest points
Easy to use and works so well on blackheads!
Weakest points
Can be a little drying to the skin
Summary
I use this on my chin and nose as this seems to be the place that attracts blackheads at times.
A powerful formula that clears blackheads after regular use.
I would have liked to have more of the ground apricot stones in as I felt there was not enough to give a great scrub, but it worked well anyway.
Skin felt tighter which is great, closing them pores up.
If using with the rest of the range, your skin will look brilliant.
Tea tree has amazing benefits so when you have sore red spots, this instantly helps to calm the spot down.
Does not fully take the redness and swelling out, but it does take some of it away.
