I love this stuff. I add half of the mild cleanser to make it thinner. And microderm abrasion crystals, eo's and some bamboo charcoal. Its great. Skin feels super smooth. I don't mind adding other exfoliants. Great base.

This is just an okay product in my opinion. It does provide a gentle exfoliation to the skin but it feels as if there was barely any. Definitely need more apricot shells. Additionally, it didn't do much for my oily skin either. Doubt I would be purchasing it again. Also, I wished there was a smaller size to try instead of the 33oz.

This face scrub is super thick and creamy. It leaves your skin super soft after you use it. Doesn't irritate my skin or leave a tight feeling. The only thing, I agree with other reviews, there a small amount of granules, but it makes this very mild face scrub. I would definitely purchase again. PS: Don't do what I did, don't put this product in a bottle. I poured some into a pump bottle using a funnel. This face scrub is super thick! I put the bottle upside down over a jar, after leaving it overnight, only 2% of the bottle poured out. It took a lot of shaking to remove this from the bottle!

I agree that there definitely needs to be more granules, however the product itself is very nice. A nice creamy feeling cleanser that doesn't strip the skin or leave it feeling tight. Would definitely purchase again.

Love this product. Smell really nice and doesn't require much added to it. To be more exfoliant, I'm adding jojoba beads and this works really nicely. Will totally buy again.

After trying to blend my own mixture, you guys have nailed it with this product. Clients with sensitive skin are not irritated and my clients that need more "scrub" I have been able to add more for them. GREAT results.

LOVE this scrub base -- so much easier than mixing everything yourself. I added a little EO, a carrier oil and walnut husk -- left my face feeling exfoliated and moisturized.....great product. I would definitely recommend this but would suggest adding an additional fine ground exfoliant (i.e. walnut husk) to the mix for those who feel the apricot shells are not enough!

This is just AWESOME!! I was looking for a cleanser for all skin types as I have combination skin. When I found this Apricot Scrub I decided to give it a try. WOW is this cleanser AWESOME.I have had a problem with clogged pores for some time now and was planning to go to the Doctor to have them removed- now I don't have to. My clogged pores are almost gone as well as the fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes and lips. I added Rosemary and Orange EO's. By the way ,did I mention my buyers LOVE it. This is my one and only cleanser that I carry! Thank-you ND for all of your AWESOME products

I agree with Lynda from Birmingham. Out-of-the-box the exfoliant is just too course and sparcely distributed. I felt frustrated that it wasn't reaching every square inch of my face. True, you could add more exfoliant but I wouldn't choose more apricot shell because it's just not fine enough, in my view.

I like this one a lot. It's very easy to customize with the ground apricot pits. I like a lot of exfoliation so I add a lot. But for friends with more sensitive skin I leave it as is. The cream is light and rinses off well. Takes fragrance well.

I like this product but I don't love it. I expected the exfoliant agent to be finer than it is. It's gentle as the exfoliant agent is mixed in a lot of cream but I think this could be made even better if you ground up the shells a bit more. Then you could use less cream and your face wouldn't be left with as much of an light, greasy feel.
