Lush Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub - Review



Washing with Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water. We mix in fresh avocado and coconut to hydrate thirsty skin, while the antibacterial effects of lime and vodka is ideal for blocked pores, blackheads or blemishes. The minerals in sea salt soften as it scrubs away dirt and blockages.



I like this Product as a Body scrub, but I find it too harsh and abrasive as face scrub.

It contains both fine and coarse sea salt along with Fresh Lime extracted in Vodka, Coconut and Avocado as main ingredients along with many others. LUSH says it is more beneficial for combination to dry skin and can cause irritation to sensitive skin due to salt and citrus oils.


Ocean Salt - Face and Body Scrub

Color: Seafoam Green

Texture: Fluffy and Grainy

Consistency: Light and Creamy, with fine and Coarse Granules in it.

Application: I applied it on wet face, rubbed it gently in circular motion till the granules dissolved completely on its own. Later rinsed it with plain water.

Feel on Skin: It is very abrasive and it actually gave me burning sensation all over my face and sharp sting in certain areas that I believe were microscopic facial cuts that I must have given myself by scratching accidentally. After rinsing the burning sensation subsided and left the skin clean, but dry and stretchy.

Packaging: Black Plastic tub with lid. Not the most hygienic packaging. I would have preferred tube over tub.



I like using this as a Body Scrub. If I have to use it on my face, I dissolve some of the granules by rubbing them in between my palms and then applying it on my face. This way, the granules decrease in size and cause less irritation.

The product does stings the eyes if comes in contact and this tastes horrible too.

The product is OK, but not extraordinary or amazing. I prefer Sugar based Body scrub over Salt Scrubs. For face I really enjoyed the smooth feeling left by Origins Modern Friction or Origins 7 Day Scrub cream.

I can see this working good on Oily skin. For Acne prone skin or skin with active acne will experience burning sensation and might aggravate the problem.

Do get a sample from Lush Stores, before actually committing on a full size jar. Lush people are generous in giving samples.

This is my personal experience with the product. It may or may not work for you. I paid for this product.
