There are whole lot of scrubs and face masks in my cupboard right now. I really wonder when did I buy so many. But the problem is, whenever I go for shopping I get tempted and end up buying more and more. This time I made a promise to myself that I will not buy anything till I finish the existing ones. I have already reviewed Queen Helen products in the past and this time I am back with Apricot Natural Facial Scrub review. The previous scrub I tried from Queen Helene was Pomegranate & Raspberry Natural Facial Scrub and I really liked it. I was expecting this scrub also to work well given its claim.

About Queen Helene Apricot Natural Facial Scrub:

A natural-fiber, facial scrub that exfoliates the surface layers of your skin to uncover a healthy, glowing complexion. Dead skin cells build up on the surface of your face clogging pores and dulling natural radiance. Apricot Natural Facial Scrub helps eliminate this build up, leaving skin radiant, soft and smooth. Apply daily, or as often as desired. Ideal for use in the shower, too!

My Experience With Queen Helene Apricot Natural Facial Scrub:

I previously used Everyouth Walnut & Apricot scrub and I thought it was a decent buy. This time too I got myself Apricot scrub from Queen Helene brand. I had a good experience from their previous scrub and was really eager to try this out. This scrub comes in a tube packing and it is really easy to take it to shower and use. If it was tub kind then it would have been difficult.

The scrub has a pleasant fragrance which is something similar to apricot. The texture is very rough and it has hard granules. While scrubbing, you got to make sure you do it gently. Else it can hurt you. I used it alternate days and it did make my skin soft and smooth removing the dead cells and impurities. After few days I could also notice my skin was looking better and the change was pretty much noticeable. Though it has hard granules, I was scrubbing gently and it worked great for me. I will surely buy this product again but only after I complete all the stuff I have.

Pros Of Queen Helene Apricot Natural Facial Scrub:
  • No animal testing
  • Pleasant fragrance
  • Exfoliates well
  • Works great for use in the shower
  • Makes the skin soft and smooth
  • Removes dead cells and impurities

Cons Of Queen Helene Apricot Natural Facial Scrub:
  • Contains parabens
  • The granules in the scrub are hard

Final Note:

This scrub worked really well for me except that I had to be extra careful given its hard granules. But my skin turned out really soft and I am going to continue using this scrub.
