LUSH Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub

Hi, everyone! I've managed to drag myself through exam period (I still have one left but it's one I'm confident with) and I'm back to the blogosphere. Today's post is about a product that I first noticed in one of Essie's LUSH hauls and decided I had to try out.

This is LUSH's Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub, a body scrub - you couldn't tell, could you? - with plenty of fine sea salt in to exfoliate your skin until it's baby soft. LUSH says you can use this in three ways: under the shower for a gentle scrub; straight from the tub if you like it rough; and for washing your hair and adding volume (think LUSH's Big Shampoo). I never tried using it for my hair, but if you have, let me know how you found it.

Just look at that colour! It looks delicious. It also smells delicious, and as soon as you twist off the lid you're hit with a lovely waft of mimosa and orange flower. In the shower, it exfoliates really well and leaves your skin incredibly soft. I did feel a lot cleaner coming out of the shower than I do after using a shower gel, and kept stroking my arms afterwards!

But for all of the positives - lovely smell, great exfoliation - it's not on my repurchase list. Rub Rub Rub costs £7.75 for 330g which isn't so bad, but I went through this tub so quickly. To cover my whole body I had to use three or four good handfuls and I didn't get very many showers out of it. I don't know, perhaps I used it too often, but I did alternate between this scrub and a shower gel and still I felt like I didn't get enough use out of it.

But hey, you win some and you lose some. It's a good product, if you don't mind repurchasing fairly frequently. As for me, I'll be rinsing the pot out, ready to trade in for a free fresh face mask.
