5 stars out of 5 stars

I wasn’t a faithful follower of doing facial scrubs before, because being a lazy person, i feel that this is an additional chore to taking care of the face! One day, i decided to give this very cheap facial scrub a try,  since i have been using Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque and loving it.  so what’s the harm of buying and trying this? I am glad i did and i never regretted it! I have been using it daily and converted my sister into using this as well. Currently in my 3rd tube!

The particles in the scrub feels a little hard, but it’s very comfortable massaging it on my face (and my back sometimes) i used it daily in my shower as a relaxing massage for my face as well as because i am so addicted to the smoothness and radiant-ness day after day! Apricot is moisturizing, thus it doesn’t dry my face and makes it produces more oil too.

With this, i really do not require other products for new acne & scarring problems cos if there is no build-up of dead skin cells & dirt, the face is problems free! i call this hassle free!


Product Description:
Put your best face forward. Enjoy a natural-fiber facial scrub that exfoliates the surface layers of your skin to uncover a healthy, glowing complexion. Dead skin cells build up on the surface of your face, clogging pores and dulling natural radiance. Apricot Natural Facial Scrub helps eliminate this build up, leaving skin radiant, soft and smooth. Use once a week or more often if your skin is oily. Ideal for use in the shower too.

Suggested Use:
Moisten face and neck with warm water. Apply a small amount of Apricot Scrub with wet fingertips and massage gently into skin avoiding the sensitive areas near your eyes. Rinse well with warm water and pat dry.

  1. Hi there,

    If you’ve tried St Ives scrubs, can you let me know how this one compares? I hate the course granules in St Ives scrubs – is the Queen Helene one just as grainy?

    • hmm, i tried that before, but i didnt like the st ives scrub.

      this apricot scrub by queen helene, the “beads” are smaller and not as coarse, and when scrubbing on face is rough enough for me.. i do not like that kinda scrub where i cannt feel as if i am scrubbing my face..

      however, i am not sure if you will find this too rough still?

  2. Hi,
    would like to try to purchase this on the website, but i’m not sure which shipping options to choose.
    any other fab products from iherb that are must try?
