Rating: I've made a few body scrubs using this apricot shells. In my opinion, they work well for both body and face scrubs.
Gentle exfoliation and silky, velvety skin after! I will definitely order apricot shells again.
Rating: 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.
Rating: 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.

Rating: 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.

Rating: This is fantastic for a facial scrub. I had tried the Walnut Husks before, but they were way too harsh.
By:Pam, Redbridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Dec-2007
Rating: 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!
