Thing of the Week 6 | Lush Ocean Salt Face Scrub

I have been enjoying Lush products in my skincare routine for years, and I loooooooove their cleansers.  I went in the other day to purchase a few bubble bars, and asked for a couple of samples, including this one, and the lovely lady gave me practically a whole tub!  Ocean Salt can be used as a face and body scrub, and smells all zingy and lemon and limey with some kind of herby hint.  Let me see what the website says:
We have taken lashings of fine sea salt to scrub and clean and mixed it with lots of great things that will moisturise and treat the skin.
For the zingy, astringent feeling we chop up organic limes and soak them in vodka overnight and then mix this with coarse sea salt and add fresh grapefruit infusion and lime essential oil.
This will give you a scrubby mix that is antiseptic, takes away dead skin and tightens the skin. But we also wanted to soften the skin and leave it moisturised and supple, so we also add avocado butter, extra virgin coconut oil, lanolin, seaweed absolute and violet leaf absolute.
This product was invented for Rowena, one of the Lush founders. She loves to have a product to scrub every part of her body and years of nagging for a face scrub finally drove Helen into her lab to come up with this.
Our Rowena is an exotic sort of person, so Helen made this to be like a slammer cocktail – invigorating, a bit naughty and has a bit of a kick.
 Basically its just ridiculously perfect for waking up your face in the mornings!  The salt itself is fairly coarse, but is encased in a creamy 'sauce' which makes your face both super clean and soft!  I love it, but beware, if you get it in your mouth it is SUPER salty! Defos will repurchase when I run out of my 'sample'!  Might even get the extra big size - its such a multi purpose product, you can use it on your body too!
