Lush A Sugar Scrub
Advantages: Exfoliates really well, moisturises to boot, lasts a while
Disadvantages: Bit messy
I got this little beauty as part of a free christmas gift box (spent £20, got a free gift) from Lush.
It's a dark green dome of sugary exfoliating goodness that contains fennel, ginger and lavender and is meant to be good for combating cellulite. There's a strange but pleasant and not remotely overpowering herby scent to it which seems to be more fennel than anything else and it is extremely rough to touch when dry. Moisten it, (and that is the key) and gently rub over any dry bits to effectively slough away dead skin.
I've found that as long as you make sure that your skin is wet then this works really well, and although its rather abrasive, which i quite like it isn't painful like some other people have said. The oils in it seem to leave my skin moisturised and silky smooth but it doesn't leave that greasy film like a lot of others seem to. It's great to use in the shower, but not so sure about the bath it may become a tad messy . The main problem with it is that it does crumble easily, however it is still fine to use if you keep it on a soap dish, i tend to pick up a little piece and use it for one particular area like an arm or leg. Another way to store it would be to keep it in one of those glass jars that some other scrubs come in. After using it on several occasions there's still plenty left, so i'd say it's fairly economical when you compare it to other salt/sugar scrubs.
All in all this is one of the best exfoliators i've used, and i would buy it again. It costs £2.50 and is available from Lush stores nationwide or from www.lush.co.uk
Summary: A great little scrub for getting rid of that tired, dull winter skin
