I love ex foliating products. My skin always feels sooo much better after using them, like I have been lightened and refreshed in one quick scrub (which is a godsend in this weather!) I tend to favour those exfoliators with natural, gentle ingredients; natural has got to be better when they are going on your face regularly, right? So when I was buying hair dye in my Manchester shop of choice, I was instantly drawn to this pretty large tub of apricot scrub. At £1.99, it's kind of hard to say no...
This is an apricot scrub with elderflower and walnut, much like alot of the popular apricot scrubs on the market. Now, I'm an impatient one. I know that you are supposed to wait a good few weeks for a skin product to show effects, but it's nice to know sooner that all your efforts are not in vain. And this product did not disappoint, showing improvement within the first use. Perfect! Of course, I continued to use the scrub for the next three weeks and it lived up to it's initial showing. Happy Heather.
This scrub does brand itself as being suitable for everyday use but I have always felt that an exfoliator on your skin 7 days a week is a little excessive, and I like to give my skin a rest so it doesn't have the opposite effect.
A big plus for me is that the scrub proudly displays the fact that it contains no animal ingredients and conducts no animal testing. This has always been a bit of a concern for me and, with the recent Lush shock campaigns, I think it is now at the forefront of the nation's mind.
I feel that the product far out-ways the price in terms of expectation. For me, this scrub could rival some of the bigger (and more expensive!) brands of exfoliant or apricot scrub. Everyone's skin is different, so I'd suggest a small test first and definitely do not use if you are allergic to any of the ingredients! However, this is a lovely, refreshing scrub for a rather refreshing price. I shall certainly be repurchasing this; although it may take me a long while to get through this large tub!
