Like "begging the question," this thread took on multiple meanings basically from its inception.

I dove into the depths of reddit's SkinCareAddiction subreddit to find out the answer to that question. The answer was "the tiny bits of apricot/walnut shell cause microtears in skin, and you're better off with a chemical exfoliant, but it wouldn't be a bad thing to use on places with tougher skin than your face"

Aren't chemical exfoliants generally terrible for the environment?

I think the ground up pits are primarily a substitute material for microbeads, which are bits of plastic that float in bodies of water and animals end up eating them.

I can't imagine it's damaging if you use it occasionally, but it definitely feels a bit rough to use daily.

hey for future reference, images still get loaded under spoilerpops, so any workplaces that monitor what's loaded would see that

i don't think this thread is expected to be nsfw, so maybe put those behind links from now on?
