Let me first start off by saying that this is my all time favorite product from Lush. While I obviously haven’t tried all of them, I have tried quite a few different products and this is the only one that I’ve seen have a real impact and really do what it says it will. The Ocean Salt Scrub is basically a body scrub body that will take off any dead skin you may have, which will keep you smooth and glowy all year long. After the first time I used it my skin felt so smooth. Like baby’s butt smooth. I also have minor KP on my upper arms and I found that this helps to get rid of them, which is amazing because I’ve been looking for something that will do this for so long. It can be quite abrasive so if you have super sensitive skin this might not be a good product for you, but the salt really does help to scrap off that dead skin. It has ingredients like avocado and coconut that hydrate your skin, while vodka and lime help cleanse it.
Lush also says that you can use this on your face, however I don’t like using abrasive scrubs like this on my face. My skin is very sensitive and harsh particles like this can damage your skin in the long run. Having said that, I did hear that this helps a lot with blackheads which piqued my interest. I tend to get blackheads on my nose, so I decided to only use the scrub there and have actually noticed a sizable difference. It hasn’t eliminated them, but using it 2x a week has helped them get smaller and smaller.
Along with this, I also bought the Rub Rub Rub Shower Gel, which I honestly did not like. It smells so good and looks really cool, but I was expecting it to have the kind of impact Ocean Salt had for me, and it just didn’t. A Lush employee recommended this to me because I told her I have dry skin (I bought this in February) and it felt really nice when she used it on me in the store, but once I started using it at home I found that it didn’t really offer much in terms of exfoliation, and I have to really scrub it in well to get any kind of effect at all. It’s very liquidy so most of it ended up on my shower floor and not on my body, which was such a waste. I got the biggest size they had and it was gone in a week and a half. Whereas the biggest size of Ocean Salt will last me months. I used it up so quickly I wasn’t even able to take a picture of it, and it’s not worth it to me to buy it again. I also found that the sea salt kind of separated from the rest of the product so I had to keep mixing it together, not ideal. So I think I’ll be sticking to the Ocean Salt Scrub for the long haul. I haven’t found another Lush product that has given as many benefits as this one has and I’m very pleased with the results.
