Lush Rub Rub Rub
Advantages: Gorgeous scent, effective buffing of my skin
Disadvantages: Quite expensive
Every Christmas my friend and I exchange Lush gift sets as we are both Lush addicts and this year she bought me an 'Uplifted' gift set which contained a range of products from Lush which are supposed to leave the user feeling uplifted and carefree.
Most of the products in the set I had used before but there were a couple I hadn't and one in particular that I had been wanting to try for a while but never actually got around to buying myself. Rub Rub Rub shower scrub is basically what you would think it was from the name it is a scrub that you use in the shower (or bath) to slough off dead skin to buff the skin and leave it feeling and looking smooth.
I was actually in need of a new exfoliator when I got my gift set so was looking forward to trying it out before fake tanning myself for a night out.
Rub Rub Rub is made with fine sea salt but don't let the fine part fool you as this gives a really vigorous scrub and really worked well to smooth my skin and leave it in nice condition for the fake tan.
The scrub is the most beautiful blue colour and I think it looks really appealing and made me want to use it straight away. The smell of the scrub is also gorgeous and is nice and floral but it also have a sort of outside beachy smell which I thought really went with the colour of the scrub. It's hard to really explain the scent other than saying I thought it was lovely and although you would think the floral notes would make it really girly and feminine I personally think it smells more unisex than I thought it would. The scent really lingers on the skin afterwards too and I can personally sniff it for ages afterwards.
The scrub is quite thick and gloopy which makes it easier to scoop out of the pot and apply to my skin without dropping it through my fingers like can happen with some thinner scrubs.
The salt in this is not so scratchy as to hurt but as I said it does give your skin a good buffing. This left my whole body feeling super smooth and even worked miracles on my elbows and knees which had been left feeling really dry and flaky. When you rinse the scrub off it leaves a slight greasy layer on the skin which meant that it was also extra moisturising and it really did give me a good base for applying my fake tan on top.
I really liked this and am only sorry I didn't get to try it sooner. This costs £7.95 for a 330g pot when bought separately and although I do think this is expensive for a scrub I like it enough that it has gone on my list of things to buy next time I am in Lush treating myself.
