Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub

Scrub a dub? You actually think  face scrub is a must for us beauties? You know what I think? I think its a must. At least once a week for scrubbing away dell cells and for polishing our skin. So, it will be wise if you can invest in one. Of course, one within your budget and one which suits your skin. How about I now introduce to you this Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub for sashing amongst the rest of your weekly beauty products (La Cellular Eye Mask & Activa Double Action Mask)?. Look, its just a suggestion, I am not in any way forcing you to buy or perhaps you should read till the last line of this beauty review, and then decide if you are keen on Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub.

Essentially, let me remind you again. Please keep scrubbing to once a week. We don't want to, in the name of rushing towards our beauty, aggravate our skin (Body Shop Cleansing Oil & MAC Lightful Cleanser). I personally know of beauties who over did it with scrubbing. In the end, they were so miserable with how their skin flared up. Of course, eventually, your skin will bounce back to its original self, that too depending on how badly you have messed it, or who knows, you may even need to seek professional skin doctor's help. I hope I have made myself clear on scrubbing, especially now that I am gonna speak about Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub. Not only affordable, indeed, a big value for your money, you get a whole big tube of it and its also one of those made with natural ingredients. Seemingly, this scrub is a far distance cousin of, you still can remember the St.Ives Apricot Scrub? I still do. One of those I actually started off, back when I was in my 20's. 
 beauty kit. These are my most essential products
Now, coming back to Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub, there's nothing fancy about its packaging. Scrub packaged in a plastic tube with a green flip open cap. Travel friendly, then again, I wonder if beauties are really obsessed with scrubbing while travelling? Of course if you going away for more than a week, you may still feel scrubbing is a must, but remember, if you are flight travelling, don't try to be a hero by hand carrying it. Got it? A tiny bit of this scrub goes a long way, which means it will take you like almost a year to finish up. To use this scent free, creamy, thick and white in color with coarse apricot granules scrub, press the tube to release scrub on your palm. Subsequently, scrub over your wet face. Gently please because granules are rather rough and tough. 
Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub without a doubt, does a decent job, especially for scrubbing white heads and black heads, but I somehow am not comfortable with it. Don't get me wrong. As it is my skin is thin and rather sensitive, no matter how gentle I am, I really don't like how it feels on my face. Actually, you know what? I have stopped using it for my face beauty. Instead, I am keeping it close to my body and feet.  
But the thing with a lot of beauties is that they simply and blindly glorify Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub because its made with natural ingredients. Look, sometimes its not whether its a natural product or not, its actually more of whether you enjoy the trill of using it for up-keeping your beauty. I am definitely not gonna hail Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub as my beauty keeper. Therefore, I am sure you got the picture if I will repurchase it  again. Honestly, I rather keep my options open to other non-harsh face scrubs. Potentially, with our beauty market flooded with all sorts of natural ingredients scrub these days, I bet won't have any qualms scouting for one.    
By all means, if you still insist on Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub, go ahead. Just ensure that you are really gently with scrubbing it on your adorable face instead of causing disaster.
