“ Brand: Lush / Type: Body Scrub / Suitable for: Body / What it does: Exfoliates, „
I first used this cute little mouse when given it in a gift pack at christmas time, along with a lovely strawberry smelling shower wash. I loved it at first sight because of its cute design, yummy strawberry smell, and the fact that it gave my skin a great scrub in the mornings and left it felling silky smooth. After a short time though, it started to turn to a mush like state and left an awfull mess to clean up on my bath tub which i would say is its only down side. Admittedly i do use these types of products sparingly which will have been the reason for its mushyness, as it was left for a while on my bath tub, so in hindsight i would have used it all in a couple of showers. Overall though, i would recommend this cute little product to any "lush" lover, and will also point out that with the scrub being a lovely shade of pink, it makes a super present for the majority of the female nation : ).
I first saw this cute little product on a visit to a Lush store in November 09, I didn't even know the Christmas products had been released yet! Typically i love anything cute and pink, so when i saw this product my little heart skipped a beat!
It is a little sugar scrub ball, complete with white chocolate buttons for eyes and a little white string tail, to make it look like a cute wee mouse! It is strawberry scented, and smells exactly the same as the Yummy Yummy Yummy Shower Cream by Lush. This little mouse was sadly a limited edition Christmas product, and is no longer for sale!
After trying one for the first time, i was in love! I have found that the entire scrub is too much for one bath or shower, what i like to do is to cut it in half. I have a special "Lush Knife" for just this sort of thing, which is really only a normal kitchen knife which is only used for lush products!
I have used this in both the bath and the shower, i especially like them for using in the bath rather than other body scrubs. As these are sugar based, they dissolve into the bath water. So you aren't left with grains of exfoliating beads swimming about in your bath, or any mess when you pull the plug!
I have very dry skin, so i was wary at first thinking these might be a bit too harsh on my skin, but they are just perfect. They are scrubby enough to get rid of all the dead, dry skin and leave me feeling soft and smooth, but not to harsh that i am left with red scratch marks all over me, the perfect combo :)
I would only recommend using half of one of these once a week, as i said they are very "scrubby" so give your skin some time to recover and use one again next week!
They also leave a subtle scent of yummy fresh strawberries on your skin, which i have found lingers for a little while. If you want the scent to last, it is best to "cocktail" this with other similar scented products. I am lucky enough to have seriously stocked up on this product before they stopped selling them. But Lush have two other sugar scrubs which are part of the permanant line! For anyone wishing to try one of these scrubs!
I like to use it with the yummy yummy yummy shower cream, and strawberry feels forver massage bar, both from Lush, and both have a similar scent to the scrub!
