Everyone wants to have a smooth and clear face. With so much pollution around us, we need to take extra care of our face. I'm sure almost all of you follow a CTM (Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize) routine that works for your skin type. Further to this, we also need to exfoliate our skin on a regular basis to remove dead skin and reduce blackheads. There are so many scrubs available in the market but I chose Himalaya Herbals brand because I have used other products from this brand and haven't been disappointed so far. Today I am going to review Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub. Read on to know how it fared with me!

About Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub:

Routine cleansing does not remove dead skin cells and deeply embedded impurities, leaving skin lifeless and prone to blackheads. Exfoliating regularly is the key to deep cleansing and removing debris. In this gentle scrub, Apricot granules gently exfoliate dead skin cells and blackheads and help stimulate fresh cell growth while Wheat germ oil, rich in natural Vitamin E, nourishes your skin. The result is soft, supple and radiant skin.

My Experience With Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub:

Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub comes in an opaque tube with a flip top. The product comes out easily when the tube is pressed. It's a very simple and fuss free packaging. It is travel friendly because you won't face any leakage issues with this product.
The scrub is light brown with brownish granules in it. It is creamy and the granules do not feel harsh in any way on my skin. A lot of scrubs feel really harsh but this one exfoliates my skin very smoothly. Though you are supposed to use this product 2-3 times a week, I use this only on Sunday's because that is the only day I have time to pamper my skin.

After using this I can clearly say that this definitely makes my skin feel soft and smooth. It does work on blackheads as well. My skin doesn't feel dry after using this. It has a sweet smell to it which lingers on for a few hours. Some people may not like that aroma, but I'm fine with it.

Pros Of Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub:
  • Easy on the pocket.
  • Simple and travel friendly packaging.
  • Granules are not harsh on the skin.
  • Makes my skin feel smooth.
  • Does not dry my skin.
  • Removes blackheads.
  • Creamy scrub.

Cons Of Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub:
  • Has a sweet smell to it which lingers. Some people may not like it!
