So today I'm bringing you a review of Ocean Salt from LUSH which is apparently a face and body scrub that brightens and softens your skin! Time to give you my honest review (Mwahahahaha)!
Now if I were to talk to you in terms of this being a body scrub, I would literally tell you to not bother wasting your £13.25 and instead go and purchase Soap and Glory's Breakfast Scrub at £8.00. To start with the tub doesn't last very long. I got about half way and realised it didn't really do anything. Yes, my skin felt soft, but not too much softer than normal and I loved the feeling the salt chunks left on my skin, but the product continued to decrease rapidly and I really felt like I'd wasted my money. The smell was beautiful and absolutely refreshing and awakening for a morning shower, but again I couldn't justify the smell of limes and vodka (Yes, you heard right) or the feeling of salt on my skin for £13.25.
I had wanted this product for so long, I'd heard so many good things about it and I was so disappointed when I used it, which is why I put off writing this post for so long. But then I discovered something which changed everything! :D One day (and half a tub later) I realised you could use this on your face. That is wear my opinions were completely turned around with this product.
It's quite a face-stingy product. The Salt. The Limes. The Vodka. But it does an amazing job at clearing away the dead skin, the salt means you can really feel as though you are exfoliating your dead skin away and getting rid of the dirt your face has claimed. The Vodka soaked limes do a great job and refreshing your face and really brightening your complexion and finally the avocado butter, coconut oil and seaweed really leave your skin feeling soft and happy again after the sting of the salt, vodka and lime.
What's more is after using this on my face, I discovered that you hardly need to use any and it lasts so much longer, meaning it is actually worth the £13.25. The smell is just an added bonus and really awakens my senses in the morning. Lime just smells pretty amazing and is great at kick starting my brain. Although as I said, It is quite cleansing and I wouldn't recommend using this more that 2-3 times a week - It will probably leave your face red raw.
This is a very dis-jointed review, I know, but that is just because it isn't exactly the softest product. It hurts slightly to use, but it does an amazing job! Especially if followed up with the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanse and Polish.
