Review: LUSH ocean salt

I love LUSH cosmetics. One of my all time favourite products by LUSH is their Ocean Salt facial scrub. It is a part of my shower routine that I cannot go without! LUSH is currently having a campaign that features Ocean Salt so I thought I'd do a quick review.
Ocean Salt is made of fine and coarse sea salt, with cleansing grapefruit and lime, moisturizing avocado butters and coconut fat, and vodka to deal with clogged pores. It smells limey and salty. A little goes a long way; LUSHies compare Ocean Salt to gold. You do not want to waste it! It isn't particularly cheap for a scrub, and as such I personally only use it on my face. You can use it for your entire body if you are feeling luxurious but I personally use Rub Rub Rub as my body exfoliant.
While Ocean Salt is listed as a cleanser, you should not use it as a daily cleanser by any means! It will dry out and irritate your skin. I only use Ocean Salt when I'm in the shower as a facial scrub. If I applied it to dry skin, I am sure it would irritate it. However, my softened wet skin in the shower responds well to it, and Ocean Salt keeps my face free of annoying skin flakies. It also combats acne and moisturizes simultaneously which is awesome. This scrub comes in two sizes; I always buy the smaller size (120 g/19.95) because I find that the colour of it changes from pretty blue to yucky grey over time and I cannot use it up fast enough since I only use it on my face. When in the shower, I just cover my pointer finger in the scrub, and then rub it directly onto my cheeks, nose and chin area. I then rub it slowly in circular motions to scrub away any dead skin.
Overall, Ocean Salt is a must-have for anyone and everyone! Exfoliating is an important step in keeping your skin looking bright and fresh! LUSH has got it right with the perfect combination of ingredients to keep my skin happy.
If you have acne-prone or oily skin, you can use ocean salt 3-4 times a week. If you have dry skin or sensitive skin, I would suggest 1-2 times a week.
What are your thoughts on Ocean Salt?

    1. hmm I am interested in checking out this pure sea salt scrub, but I am pretty loyal to ocean salt as it is tried and true! but I bet the other way would be a lot cheaper ;) If you do buy it, let me know how you like it!

  4. I like it. I use it 1-2 times a week as I'm afraid it'd be too harsh on my skin. But with the warm weather coming, I might also use it 3 times. :)

    1. I use it every time I shower! Which is 4+ times a week. But I don't use a lot, and I don't scrub too vigorously.
