Professional skin care products also use the benefits of this tasty fruit. The Apricot Cleansing Lotion from Ole Henriksen effectively and gently cleanses the face, and the Apricot Whip Moisturizer from Éminence Organic Skin Care refreshes the complexion and reduces the visual signs of aging through the use of apricot juice. Essensa’s Apricot Scrubbing Gel is a soap-free exfoliator for the face and body that smoothes and conditions the skin, and Essie’s Apricot Cuticle Oil is a soothing massage oil that seals in moisture and hydrates nails and cuticles. Karin Herzog’s Vita-A-Apricot is an anti-aging facial cream that smoothes and tones, giving radiance and energy to the skin, and Elemis’ Soothing Apricot Toner gives a fresh sensation and radiant appearance to extra-sensitive, delicate and hormonal skin.
