One of the first products I ever tried from LUSH is the Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub. They describe it as “a vodka infused cocktail for bright and fresh skin”. To me it feels and smells like a margarita for the skin. It smells SOOOO GOOD! Anyway, I recently repurchased it whilst getting ready for a new summer skincare routine. Time to get rid of the tired, old skin and uncover the beautiful, fresh skin underneath!
LUSH Ocean Salt is made up of sea salt, organic lime juice, grapefruit, seaweed, violet leaf, lanolin, avocado, coconut, and a little vodka for antibacterial purposes. The minerals in sea salt soften the skin while it scrubs away dirt, old/tired layers, and unblocks pores. Lime and vodka do an excellent job at cleaning the skin—they rid you of blackheads and blemishes while they brighten your skin. The avocado and coconut included hydrate your skin, leaving it balanced and soft.
When you open it up you will notice it is in little layers so that it preserves the formation of the salt. You are suppose to mix it up so that all the ingredients and blended together evenly. While it is in the newer stages the salt remains really chunky and is sort of abrasive as far as exfoliation goes, so I would only recommend it for your body in the early stages. As it ages and the salt breaks down it becomes my IDEAL facial exfoliator. The salt crystals break down to MUCH smaller (like table salt smaller) granules. At this stage it still isn’t a gentle exfoliate, it is still pretty hard core. I remember the WONDERS it did for my skin the first summer I used it, I went from having troubled, acne-covered skin to having the clear, smooth skin. It was the first facial exfoliator I had ever used! It is the product that turned me into the exfoliator junkie I am today!
I use LUSH Ocean Salt 3 times a week (or every other day) and I should let you know that is because I am used to heavy exfoliators. If you have more sensitive skin I would recommend twice a week (every 3 days) to start.
Recap: I love that it has antibacterial properties, exfoliates, clears clogged up pores and gets rid of my blackheads and blemishes.
LUSH Ocean Salt is an ideal all over exfoliator. It starts out good for your body and when the salt breaks down a bit it becomes great for a facial exfoliant. You can find it in a few different sizes, so if you wanna try this out I recommend you getting the smaller size 4.2 oz ($21.95).
