Ocean Salt Face And Body Scrub



I have only really began using any lush products in the past 6 or 7 months, before that they were always raved about but I genuinely thought they just sold bath bombs - and i'm definitely more of a shower person. I headed down to London in March to celebrate my 18th birthday, and whilst there found myself browsing the stands of the lush store. My skin was going through a phase of being spot prone, and I needed something to calm it down. This is where I turned to the ocean salt face and body scrub, and well lets say.. I've never looked back.

The first thing that interested me was the scent, it definitely smells like ocean salt - with ingredients including lime, grapefruit and coconut. This product is an exfoliator - and when first opened there were little blue beads which sat at the top of the product, ready to be mixed in. I prefer to use this product in the shower, so water has got into my tub and changed the colour and consistency of the product slightly which doesn't bother me at all. I find actually, like this its much easier to apply! I also love the fact this is a self-preserving srcub, so doesn't need to sit all forgotten about in the fridge - I can easily keep it in my bathroom and use it daily.

It is recommended to wet your face before applying the scrub - the reason I apply this in the shower. You scrub in circular motions which allows for the exfoliating process to occur, leave for a few minutes (again, why I use it in the shower, during this time I shampoo and condition my hair) and then wash off with clean water. My skin feels so much better after using this scrub, and I genuinely have seen a difference in my face looking clearer and smoother, being less prone to spots and my redness is reduced. My skin is already very dry so when I felt this scrub I was a little nervous, but have great pleasure in saying this does not dry up my skin at all - so suitable for dry, normal, combination and oily skin.. whilst i've heard many say it works wonders for acne prone skin too!

This little pot of goodness retails on the lush website here at £7.75 for 120g (the size I have) or £13.95 for 250g. Do you have any favourites from Lush?

  8. I don't use LUSH because of the price, and I don't really take baths... also, I wanted to try their toner, but they had parabens. lol I just have so many requirements nowadays.

  12. Fab post, I am exactly the same as you I didn’t really get into Lush until the past year as I didn’t realise they did skincare either. I love the sound of this scrub and definitely need to try this as my skin is going through a flare up right now.
