Lush: Ocean Salt Scrub Review + Giveaway


Hey everyone! I'm doing a follow up on the small trial sample of Lush's: Ocean Salt Scrub.

"It's a blend of lime, coconut, and sea salt for a complexion that glows."--
  1. Lime: brightens up the skin and washes away impurities with it's acidic/citrus juices.
  2. Coconut: Contains lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, soothing, etc. So it heals the skin providing moisture as well.
  3. Sea Salt: exfoliates and removes the dead subcutaneous layer of the skin. I find it acting like a natural organic micro-dermal brassion opening up the pores of the skin. So the skin can absorb the nutrients from the sea that keeps our skin in balance, younger, and smoother.
    Interesting facts: Benefits of the Dead Sea Salt
"Why are these types of salts beneficial? Magnesium is important for both combatting stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system. Calcium is effective at preventing water retention, increasing circulation and strengthening bones and nails. Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system function). So we can see that bathing in high quality sea salt could replenish the minerals which are critical to our skin metabolism."--Benefits of the Dead Sea Salt by Amy K. McNulty, Ph.D.

I like the salt scrub. I guess it would have to take time for it to work. But basically it cleanses away all my dead skin on my face and soothes out my complexion. It smells very organic, like you can smell the coconut and lime in it. I feel like my face whitens up after using this product because of the lime and salt reaction to my face.

I came back home on Wednesday and found a package on my desk for me! Aww...I was very excited to open it and found a little panda bear that was a gift from a friend after visiting a Zoo. It's so cute and thoughtful at the same time! Thanks
