The exfoliation of your skin has a very long list of skin-perfecting benefits. I cannot believe the number of people that do not know how essential exfoliating is for the upkeep of beautiful skin. I never used to think that it was as a very important job myself, that is until I had a chocolate sauce massage followed by the most epic sea-salt body scrub.
It was a birthday treat booked by my boyfriend while we were on holiday in Egypt, we were in our early twenties at the time and ever since the experience, it has changed my skin for the better.
I couldn’t get over how beautiful my skin felt and looked, I was glowing. My sun tan was the best it had ever been and my skin tone was completely even. I have a number of dark and light patches of skin all over my body. I have always been very self conscious of them and ashamed at how uneven and strange they make my skin appear. Description wise I would compare it to a very bad patchy, fake tan – which we can all appreciate is no fun at all.
Once my Egyptian salt scrub was over I couldn’t quite believe what I was looking at in the mirror. For the first time ever I was confident about the look and feel of my skin. I felt amazing!
Lush’s Rub Rub Rub shower scrub is the closest formula out there to whatever Egyptian magic they used on me that day. Packed with skin reviving ingredients I always make sure I have a pot of this on my shelf to use at least once a week. I dread to think of what my skin would look like without it.
Sharing its scent with the Sakura Bath Bomb, Rub Rub Rub gives off a very refreshing and clean fragrance.
The tiniest amount of this shower scrub goes a very long way, I have heard many positive reviews on Rub Rub Rub. For me, it evens out my skin tone, softens my skin and also helps keep any annoying black heads or breakouts at bay.
It is the perfect product to not only clean and clear your pores of excess oil, dirt and yucky dead skin but also to make your skin softer in appearance as well as to touch.
I’d also like to point out that the Rub Rub Rub scrub is a little more heavy duty than some of the alternative exfoliating products out there. For someone like me having an incredibly noticeable, uneven skin tone it is gold dust!
It’s a fairly gentle but effective formula, not so harsh that it makes my skin sore and not so soft that I can’t see or feel the difference after using it. It is worth every penny.
If your skin is sensitive I would maybe try something more gentle for your face. My go to face exfoliator is Lush’s Cup O’ Coffee. In the Winter I however stick to using Rub Rub Rub or the Ocean Salt and Face Body Scrub.
The consistency of Rub Rub Rub to touch reminds me of a Slush Puppy, it however isn’t as cold, I do know of some people using it straight from the fridge though. I have yet to try it fresh from the fridge but now the nights are getting warmer I’m leaning towards giving it a go.
As said above, a little goes a long way, I can scrub down the whole of my body with the equivalent of a table spoon worth of product.
Rub Rub Rub isn’t just a shower scrub either, I love when a product isn’t a one trick pony. It can also be used as a shampoo, the sea salt stimulates your roots and massages your scalp so well, it’s my idea of heaven. When I use it, it adds so much volume to my flat, dull and boring hair – another problem I have.
All in all I am very impressed with the Rub Rub Rub shower scrub. It also comes in a solid form but after trying both I find the potted form of it lasts longer and is better value for money.
