Fragrance:​ The fragrance is not too good to be honest. It kind of smells like medicine. But now I have gotten used to it. Although I’m not a big fan of the fragrance as such.

My Experience: Before diving in, let me tell you my skin type is combination and it keeps changing with the weather. I had an okayish experience with Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot scrub. I do not like the scrub very much. The granules do not seem to clean my pores. I feel that it’s just called a scrub but it does not to do its job as it is supposed to do.

I do not see any dead skin cells being removed from my skin. I do not see my skin looking fresh or clean after I’ve used it. It just works better than your regular face wash but not as I would prefer a scrub to be.

I do not see much difference in my skin. The formula of the product is fine but I feel the granules are somewhat weird for my skin as they do not do anything. And when we talk about a scrub, the granules are what matter the most or it wouldn’t be called a scrub. I tried using it on my arms and it worked better there but on my face it is absolutely useless.


1. Affordable
2. Easily available
3. Formula is good
4. Travel Friendly


1. Fragrance isn’t good
2. Granules don’t scrub well
3. Doesn’t remove dead skin cells
4. Doesn’t clean pores

Jhalli Diva Verdict: 2/5

Do I Recommend?

No, I do not recommend Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub as it didn’t do anything for my skin. It is just a face wash but better. This scrub is a waste of money. I won’t recommend buying it.

Will I Repurchase?

No, I will never repurchase this. It was a fail for me, I would say. I haven’t ever disliked a scrub so much but this one, gotta say what you gotta say, is just disappointing as it didn’t work for me all.

Overall Summary: I would say that this scrub is good for nothing. I use it on my arms sometimes as it does a little better job there. But I don’t really have much good things to talk about this scrub. So do think before you buy this scrub!
