RECOMMENDING TO PURCHASE?
Queen Helene Apricot Facial Scrub claims that it can sweep away pore-clogging impurities to reveal smoother, brighter looking skin with continued use. Although this product may sound like the daily exfoliant you’ve been looking for, there are several issues you should consider. The packaging leads you to believe that the exfoliating properties of this formulation come from apricots, this is simply untrue.
Most of the exfoliation is actually coming from walnut shells, however, there’s no indication on the front of the packaging to relay this information. Walnut shell powder does not have a smooth surface and may be too abrasive for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin. Additionally, this product contains fragrance, which some customers claim is too strong and rather unpleasant.
Fragrance is also problematic for those with sensitive skin, particularly when it’s paired with abrasive, exfoliating ingredients such as walnut shells. We’d recommend continuing your search for an exfoliating scrub that uses gentle means to sweep away dirt and other pore-clogging impurities.
Queen Helene Apricot Facial Scrub is available at several very well known drugstore retailer websites. These sites have quite reasonable return policies. If, for any reason, you’re unhappy with your product, simply return it within 30 days for a full refund. Be sure to include proof of purchase with your return.
While exfoliating the skin does not have to be done on a daily basis, it should be performed on a regular basis in order to keep the skin free of dead skin cells which contribute to a dull, poorly textured skin surface. With any exfoliator it is important to choose one suitable for your skin type, particularly if skin is sensitive or prone to breakouts. An exfoliator that is gentle yet effective, clearing the pores but maintaining moisture is preferable.
