LUSH Ocean Salt Review

I purchased this Ocean Salt a while back when I was on the search for a new facial scrub. I read a lot of good reviews on this and thought I would give it a try.  I purchased this in the 120g pot just in case I did not like this, and I realise now that I was right to.

LUSH Ocean Salt Review


The Ocean salt needs mixed up in the pot as the large rough salt rocks are sitting on top and they need to be mixed around to also evenly distribute the ingredients. Once the ingredients are all mixed together, it has a very fresh citrusy smell which I really like and it isn’t too over powering.

LUSH States:
Cleansing lime, coconut and sea salt scrub. Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water, then cleansing and refreshing it with lemon, grapefruit and lime juices. Fresh avocado moisturizes and softens the skin, while violet leaf absolute calms and nurtures. Use it on oily skin every day and use it to refresh dry skin once a week.

I used this on my face, grabbing a small chunk of it in my fingers and very lightly started to massage it into my skin… Oh… my… goodness… It stung like crazy! I couldn’t believe that I was putting this on my face! I stopped massaging and let it sit on my face to let the good things seep into my skin and I simply couldn’t stand it, the stinging was unreal and I didn’t even have any broken skin and my skin has never been sensitive before.
I have since used this on my knees, elbows and feet to remove the dry skin, and it was also so scratchy there as well, I hated it.

I have used this a few times after this on my face with exactly the same results.  I definitely will not be repurchasing this! I need your help however to help me find a new facial scrub for my combination skin. Something that has very fine beads and a lot of them.

Let me know your favourite scrub or one that you find great at the moment and I will definitely be checking it out!
