Lush Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub // Review

The problem with having very dry skin that goes from being really sore one minute to peeling away the next, is that it's really difficult finding the right skincare products that create the right balance. I use the Clinique 3 step skincare system daily which is amazing for keeping my skin smooth and hydrated, but when the cold weather kicks in and the dead skin starts to build up, i need something a bit stronger.

I have used every facial scrub on the market and not a single one has given me 100% perfect results. The problem with most scrubs, is that the grains are just not coarse enough and are way too gentle to scrub dead skin away so i went looking for something else and came across the Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub from Lush

The first thing i noticed about this product was the smell, it smells absolutely divine. Really citrusy and sweet. It contains sea salt, grapfruit and lime amongst other ingredients like coconut oil, seawead and avocado butter.

When i applied this to my face, it was really rough which is exactly what i was after from a scrub. After i washed it off, my skin felt instantly polished and smoothed out. I had a look at my nose and chin where my skin peels alot and there were no flakes at all. About an hour later, my face felt a little sore but because my skin is really sensitive i expected it. After a couple more uses, my face has calmed down alot and is used to the roughness of the scrub.

This pot cost £7.25 for 120g. It's a small pot and is quite pricey but i only use this one a week so it will last a fair while. If you have skin that is prone to dead skin build up and you have tried everything else out there, get your hands on a pot of this.


  1. That annoying moment when you post a comment and your browser times out. Ha!

    I'm gonna have to get me some of that. Sometimes fine micro beads just sent enough, and I want something bigger and better that I can really feel working. This look like exactly what I need! Thanks for recommending x

    1. Haha story of my life!

      That's the problem i had for many years. Exfoliants just weren't cutting it but honestly this stuff is amazing. It leaves your skin a little sore the first time you use it but oh my god it's worth it. You're very welcome chick let me know when you get some! xx
