Lush items appear on this blog again and again, and I really can’t hide the fact that I’m absolutely in love with the shop. So many vegan choices, more or less locally produced items, fantastic smells, amazing quality, completely and actively cruelty free…. The list goes on!
In the run-up to the wedding, I decided to treat myself to a few items to rev up my beauty routine and get my body and skin into shape. Ocean Salt, which I’ve had several times before, was my first choice for a scrub. It can be used on the entire body, including your face, although I only do this on particularly bad days.
The scrub smells absolutely amazing! Fresh lime and a bit of vodka really help purify the skin, and the varying sizes of salt grains get rid of any dead skin cells you might have accumulated. This is especially good before shaving your legs.
It is a little on the pricey side, but I’ve found that one jar lasts me absolute ages. When I don’t drop it upside down off the side of the bath, that is… It’s not really a scrub to use every single day of the week, as it’s quite harsh. For the same reason, I think that really sensitive skin wouldn’t fare particularly well with it. As I said, I only use it on my face if it’s having an especially dodgy day. But if you’re looking for a body scrub or have really oily skin, I would highly recommend giving this a go!
What’s your favourite scrub? I’ve been wanting to make my own for ages, but never get around to it!
