Where I can purchase this scrub?

Drugstores. Guardian, Watsons.

The Good :

First at all, I used this scrub twice a week as recommended by the seller. With the Salicylic Acid, I noticed that my blemish on the skin getting lesser, of course it’s made my day. What’s I love is the scrub’s sweet-scented. Nothing beats when your skin can adapt fragrances in products.

I can’t say that there’s no new pimples at all because you know what you on your period and stress over the things, there will be new small annoying friend on the face. Trying hard to not popping up my pimples is another challenge for me. I let it be and scrub once it gone.

P/s : don’t scrub your face if there’s active pimples. You can make it worse than heal it.

What I can say, this scrub really made their job. My skin feels smooth as well, since it contains glycerin and removes all the dead skin cells. I noticed my skin is kinda glowing a little bit and no more dullness.

The Bad :

As we know, each product has its own advantages and disadvantages. No exception of the scrub.

I noticed that this scrub is quite harsh. My skin still okay with it, but for sensitive and dry skin types, maybe this apricot scrub is not for you since I scared of your skin will be dryness .

Will I repurchase this next time? Maybe, if I don’t find a good exfoliator like this.
