Almost every single time I wash my face, I use an apricot scrub. I adore the way the scrub makes my skin feels after I use it. My face feels clean. When I have used self-tanners in the past, using the scrub prepares my skin and helps with the removal afterward.
I try to save my pennies when I can and cannot tell the difference between the name brand and the store brand. Thus the store brand has earned my loyalty, though I do price-check every time I re-purchase.
This is my personal opinion. I am not being reimbursed for my words. I purchased this item with my own money.
