Apricots just wouldnt break down in blender. Maybe soak them in the water for a while first? Needed to add more water to get them to get smaller than bacon bit size. Another 1/2 cup got them to sesame seed size but then the mixture was way too thin. Added about 4 small handfuls of oatmeal to thicken but that was still way to thin to adhere to skin well. Fresh apricots may work better to get right consistency. Warmth of the water felt food going on! Skin felt good after rinsing! Sorry I couldnt rate it higher.
