LUSH Cosmetics Ocean Salt Self-Preserving & Alcohol Free Face & Body Scrub - Review

Salty like the ocean!

Limes steeped in glycerine, grapefruit and lashings of salt go into this invigorating face and body scrub. The salty, citrus fragrance is refreshing on the skin and mind, like diving into the cool blue ocean. Sea salt is rich in minerals and excellent for scrubbing away any dead skin. Lush Cosmetics have also added rich, silky avocado butter, coconut oil and seaweed absolute into this scrub to keep our skin soft, smooth and conditioned.

Did you know that they are four different types of this scrub... there's the original Ocean Salt which isn't suitable for vegans as it contains lanolin (yuck!), there's a self-preserving one which has alcohol in it, one that isn't self-preserving but is alcohol free and this one, which is lanolin free, alcohol free and self-preserving! I've been using this scrub on my face for a few weeks now and I think it's finally safe to say that I've found a facial scrub that I like. My favourite aspects of this scrub is that it's thick, great smelling and I love the nicely sized lumps of salt in the product. I love the scent as it's a really fresh citrus smell and it leaves my face feeling wide awake. I also feel that my skin doesn't dry out afterwards and my skin is left feeling quite soft and oil free. The best thing about this product is that it contains silken tofu, yes you read it right, tofu! 


  1. This sounds great! A product I've wanted to try for ages. xxx - natural beauty, affordable fashion, everyday life

    1. It's definitely worth the money :-) I don't know why I didn't try it sooner to be honest!

  2. For the duration of the day, it is hard not to much of the time touch our faces, adding to the general develop of grime that obstructs our pores.
