Back In The Eighties, Exfoliation Was So Hardcore, A Gal Could Basically Buy Dermabrasion In A Bottle From The Local Osco

This stuff was genius.  I say "was" because it is no longer available in the United States.  You can buy it in the UK, if you are across the pond.

Its exfoliating bits were crushed apricot seeds.  Allow me to tell you from personal experience that a daily wash with that stuff would literally strip all of the bad nasty stuff from your face, leaving you with clean, clear, fresh skin.  Aapri could easily take off a layer of skin with every scrub in the sink.

I've been wanting to return to England this year.  Would it be the very definition of "superficial" if the deciding factor for our trip is the possibility of buying this marvelous scrub? 

Mental note: contact British Airways.

  1. OMG I freaking loved this stuff and you are so right.

    I was sad when I tried to buy some a few years ago and they had the lousy "exfoliating BEADS" in it. It wouldn't wash off soap....sucks.

    OH - I didn't know it still existed. Can you get it online? :)
