Scrubs and skin: Products you mention are most famous for their apricot scrubs. These scrubs are too strong for sensitive skin and can cause irritation, dryness and redness. They usually have fragrances as well, which tend to irritate sensitive skin. Best to clean with a gentle, fragrance free foaming cleanser like purpose cleanser or cerave foaming facial cleanser.
