Price: $4.00USD
Packaging: 6 fl oz / 170g

Product Description:
Swiss formula. Blemish & blackhead control. Oil free with Salicylic Acid. Gently exfoliated without drying to remove dirt, oil and dead skin cells that can clog pores. Oily/Acne prone skin.

It smells strongly of apricots while applying and mildly after the rinse and dry the smell will vanish over a short time.I prefer anyways for my face not to smell of anything ;)

Mixture ,Texture &Application:
Moisten face with water. Dispense product onto fingertips and massage over face. Rinse with warm water. Avoid direct contact with eyes. For best results, use 3 to 4 times per week. (I use it everyday!!)

Key Ingredients:
  • APRICOTS are known to contain one of the highest levels of carotenoids (think vitamin A) and super-effective antioxidants. All of this natural power might seem, well, too powerful, but they are actually quite gentle and nourishing and they help make fresher, more nourished skin beautifully possible. 
  • CORN KERNEL MEAL is actually flour ground from dried corn. It’s a soft, but gently powerful all-natural exfoliant that promotes skin cell turnover and regeneration. Cornmeal makes softer-feeling, fresher skin possible. 
  • WALNUT is known for its hard shell, but when it’s ground, it becomes an amazingly effective, all-natural exfoliant ingredient in our scrubs. Not only are walnuts plentiful on the planet, they also help newer, healthier skin come to the surface. 

This scrub allows my skin to breathe and leaves is feeling very clean after application and rinse. I use it every day after a long day at work in the shower. I love how the mixture is perfect to clean and remove any dry skin esp since the dirt comes from the high heat of the summer! It has become one of my go to products!!

I absolutely love this product. I never expect much while trying a new product but noticing my skin over time it is more so clear then before and breakouts are almost never around these days.
**I will be buying this product for as long as it is in make :)
