The grains are too large and rough to use as a face scrub. Maybe it would be good as a body scrub but I have not tried it for that purpose yet.

I find this is too harsh on my face but perfect for body and foot scrub!

I've always been a fan of apricot scrubs, so I decided to finally make my own - sans chemicals. What a wonderful buy. You definitely get your money's worth. The shells have been grinded to a very fine consistency and they do not feel harsh on the face. I only wish this was sold in a container rather than a bag as I find it hard to empty the contents without losing some of the product.

LOVE! It is so perfect. It is such a great exfoliant I add it to my soaps. It's very fine and can be adjusted well to the amount of exfoliant you want. It's great for those who love a lot of exfoliating power and for those with very dry skin. Great to be added to moisturizing soap. Fantastic stuff I will definitely be buying more.

Excellent for any scrub, didn't find them too harsh for face at all, and my skin gets quite red if I over-do anything. Perfect to add to sugar scrubs to enhance them once sugar melts, nice visual effect as well.

I have added the recently purchased apricot shells exfoliant to my homemade face wash. It does an amazing job at removing dead skin and clearing up pores. A little goes a long way. Both my daughter and I love it! 1kg bag will last a long time.

I would never use this on the face, far too rough, but PERFECT for the body. Gives an aggressive, and thorough, yet gentle body scrub!

This is fantastic for a facial scrub. I had tried the Walnut Husks before, but they were way too harsh.

Very nice small peice of apricot shells. They are small enough to be confortable and large enough to add texture and look to your product. Perfect when combined with another exfoliant!

I ordered these for the first time and they are wonderful! The ease of use and the way that they react with the bases is absolutely fantastic. They leave the skin feeling so refreshed after us and I cannot wait to introduce these new products to my customers. What a bargain! 1 kg of these go such a long way when making scrubs, definitely something I will continue to order in the future!
