Scrub Scrub Scrub Shower Scrub from Lush

Scrub Scrub Scrub Shower Scrub.pngScrub Scrub Scrub is Lush’s most recent potted-shower-scrub release. It was only a few weeks ago that I was talking about the growing popularity of black Lush products in my The World’s Smallest Disco review. The Scrub Scrub Scrub Shower Scrub is yet another, brand new black product.

I have found that when it comes down to the black products, the people within the Lush community either get really excited about trying them or they freak out asking why anyone would use such a product in the bath or shower (a place you get in to get clean.)

At first I too felt a little alarmed at the idea of bathing in Bewitched‘s or Secret Arts’ black waters but I tried them and I had nothing but a positive experience with both. – Clean up included! It was therefore a no brainer to give Scrub Scrub Scrub a go and I am so pleased that I did.

This scrubs consistency is very similar to the likes of the Magic Crystals shower scrub. Its ingredients include charcoal, blackberry, lime, blackcurrant and plenty of fine sea salt making it the perfect go-to product for an all over exfoliation.

It doesn’t share a scent with another Lush product but it does remind me of the, The Comforter bubble bar a little. It’s got the same blackcurrant twang but its scent is more coarse, it gives off very autumnal vibes.

It actually reminds me of Autumn because it smells just like the fruit pies my nan used to make after having us all out picking hundreds upon hundreds of berries.scrubscrubscrubWM

I am always honest in my reviews and I admit that a small part of me still feels a small amount of panic whenever I first take off Scrub Scrub Scrubs lid. I think it’s a psychological thing. It’s just such a bizarre coloured product to put all over your body when the main goal for your shower/bath is to clean yourself.

I have however not had any bad experiences with Scrub Scrub Scrub. NONE. People expect to come out of the shower looking like a chimney sweep but that’s not the case at all.

Yes, it can get a little messy during use but it rinses off just fine and without having to use another product such as a shower gel. Shower walls included! As I said earlier, it’s a psychological thing, once you get past its colour you start to realise how good of a product it actually is. It hydrates your skin, absorbs all of your pores impurities while also buffing away all of your dead, dry skin.

To use all you have to do is scoop out a small amount from the pot and work it into your skin just like you would a shower gel. A little amount does go a long way but please feel free to over indulge. With any exfoliator I recommend that you pay particular attention to any dry patches you may have such as knees and elbows.

Scrub Scrub Scrub leaves your skin softer in appearance as well as to touch. Its fruity fragrance remains on your skin long after using it too.

Apart from its repetitive name (I’ve read and written the word ‘scrub’ so many times now that my brain is starting to question if it’s even a real word!) I actually really like this product. I am so glad that I didn’t let its colour deter me. Scrub Scrub Scrub is a fantastic addition to the potted shower scrubs. Lush – thank you for yet another beautiful product!

Magic Crystals Shower Scrub from Lush

phontoAfter what feels like an eternity Lush have finally released another potted shower scrub. I have been wanting an alternative to Rub Rub Rub for longer than I can even remember, not because I dislike Rub Rub Rub, I in fact adore it… I just feel as if it would be nice to have more of a choice when it comes down to the potted shower scrubs, enter Lush’s brand new Magic Crystals Shower Scrub!

Magic Crystals is a brilliant shade of purple, upon seeing its colour I immediately had a soft spot for it as its the exact same colour I had my bridesmaids in when I got married in 2017.

When pictures of the Magic Crystals shower scrub first emerged on social media due to its magical name, many people guesstimated that it shared its scent with the Magic bath bomb, they were however very, very wrong.

Its ingredients include fresh mint, sage and spearmint oil as well as epsom and fine sea salt. Magic Crystals doesn’t share a scent with another Lush product it does however remind me of several of them.

When you first take the lid off of the Magic Crystals I am instantly reminded of one of my favourite Lush face masks the Mask of Magnaminty.

Once you start to use Magic Crystals in the shower I am then reminded of Christingle body conditioner, not only for its scent in the steamy hot shower but also for how it gently stimulates your skin making it tingle a little.

To use all you have to do is scoop out a small amount from the pot and work it into your skin just as you would a shower gel. A little amount does go a long way but please feel free to over indulge. I won’t tell anyone if you won’t!

With any exfoliator I recommend that you pay particular attention to any dry patches you may have such as knees and elbows. The spearmint oils tingly properties breathe life into dull skin. A quick scrub down with Magic Crystals clears your pores of excess oil, dirt and yucky dead skin leaving your skin softer in appearance as well as to touch.

Consistency wise Magic Crystals isn’t as silky soft as Rub Rub Rub. The salt in it appears to be slightly more chunkier, it does however do an almost identical job, I’d go as far to say that my skin actually feels more hydrated after using Magic Crystals when compared to my skin after using Rub Rub Rub.

Overall I am very happy with the new Magic Crystals shower scrub, it’s nice that there is more of a choice of this particular type of product now. The variety certainly makes shower time a lot more exciting to say the least.

Once out of the shower its minty scent is still detectable on your skin hours after using it. Its scent on my skin actually reminds me of the Intergalactic bath bomb some what. Intergalactic is one of my favourites so this is a huge positive for me, I will imagine this is the case for many other Lush customers too as Intergalactic is one of (or possibly is, I need to check) their best selling product.

Let the Good Times Roll Fresh Cleanser from Lush

Let The Good Times Roll Fresh CleanserIt wasn’t until I had, had my Validation Facial treatment at the Lush Oxford Street Spa that I started to appreciate Lush’s fresh face and body cleansers. I had used Let The Good Times Roll several times before but up until the Validation facial I had no idea of how beneficial it was for my skin.

The Let the Good Times Roll scent is one of my all time favourites from Lush, it’s truly beautiful. My husband calls it ‘the one that smells like popcorn’. I agree with him but it’s so much better than just popcorn, I can’t quite put my finger on it, it just smells delicious. If I could have had our wedding cake made to taste just like Let the Good Times Rolls Fresh Cleanser smells – I honestly wouldn’t have shared a single slice.

Let the Good Times Roll fresh cleanser is perfect to use on both your face and body, I tend to use it just on my face as it is the ideal balance of what I need in a facial cleanser. It is super gentle and not only cleanses but also exfoliates and soothes your skin too.

Before discovering Let the Good Times Roll I had never used a product made for your face that was good at both exfoliating and hydrating. Another great ingredient in the cleanser is cinnamon powder, this ingredient not only adds to this products scent but it also stimulates your skin leaving it feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. After I have used it I always have beautifully soft skin.

I feel this cleanser benefits my skin so well that it was actually the one I used for my face every day in the run up to my wedding. The makeup artist I had booked to come do my makeup on the day said that she could really see the difference to my skin since the last time she had seen me on my trial hair and makeup day. She said my skin was no longer dry and also commented on how fresh and soft it appeared.

Let The Good Times Roll face and body cleanser has completely changed my opinion on skincare. Before I had tried it all the other products I had come across that promised to both exfoliate and equally hydrate my skin left my face oily and yucky. It has taken my dry combination skin and changed it for the better, there’s no other product that cleanses, softens and buffs quite like it. For the first time ever I feel confident without makeup on.

At first I was a little weirded out by the fact bits of popcorn were mixed into it but I now know the popcorn is an excellent ingredient for both oil absorption and exfoliation. On occasion I also use Let The Good Times Roll on my chest and neck too as I get dry patches of skin there as well, particularly in the Summer months.

A little of Let The Good Times Roll also goes a long way, all you need is a small pinch of it for your face, you then add a drop of water and mix it into a paste in the palm of your hand, I then work it gently into my face before rinsing it off with a clean flannel and hot water. My favourite thing about Let The Good Times Roll is however its scent, it stays on your skin for the best part of a day after using it, I wish that Lush could bring out more products with this scent, if they did I think I’d go bankrupt collecting it all! Let The Good Times Roll is by far one of the best Lush products I have used, it smells great and does an excellent job, there will always be a pot of it in my house.
