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




LUSH Cosmetics are highly against animal testing and use only ethical ingredients. All of their products are handmade and are 100% vegetarian-friendly, not all are vegan-friendly, so make sure you look out for the Vegan Society Approved stamp!

Limes steeped in glycerine, grapefruit and lashings of salt go into this invigorating face and body scrub - now in a self-preserving formula. 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 and buffing skin. We also added rich, silky avocado butter, coconut oil and seaweed absolute to keep your skin soft, smooth and conditioned. But why choose self-preserving? This formula contains only natural preservatives to keep itself clean and safe to use. Salt, as well as being a kick-ass cleanser and exfoliator, is an age-old preservative and prevents bacteria from growing and reproducing if used in high enough concentrations. What’s more, this exotic scrub is vegan, thanks to the silken tofu and Japan wax that help bind the mixture together. The added butters and oils in this self-preserving formula help to make it feel a tad more delicate on the skin than its preserved counterpart.

Did you know that there 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 or vegan but is alcohol free and this one, which is vegan, alcohol free and self-preserving! I've been using this scrub on my face for a few weeks now and I think it's safe to say that I've finally found a facial scrub that I like. My favourite aspects of the scrub are that it's thick, great smelling and that it's great for exfoliation due to the salt. I love the fresh citrus scent of the scrub as 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 shine free. The best (and very vegan) thing about this product is that it contains silken tofu!

    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.
