Get Silky Smooth Skin with Lush Ocean Salt Cleanser

LUSH Ocean Salt Cleanser ($18.55 for 4.2 oz.) is an exfoliator that uses both fine and coarse sea salt to exfoliate the skin.  It also contains vodka and lime as well as avocado butter.  This scrub leaves skin feeling incredibly clean and smooth.  It smells kind of like a margarita to me, a little sour.

While the sea salt can be coarse, the best part about the product is you can always add a little more water to dilute the scrub and make it better for your skin.  I didn’t find I needed to do more than wet my face prior to using the scrub.  Do make sure you mix-up the scrub when you get it, though, as all of the salt mixture lies on top when you initially purchase the product.

For me, I feel like my skin looks and feels smoother, but it doesn’t feel like it’s been dried out either.  It’s soft, hydrated, and looks and feels smooth.  No breakouts or reactions, nor irritated skin in the least bit.  One pot of this stuff will last you quite awhile (I’d probably opt for the smaller size), because a little goes a long way.

  • Product: 8/10
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 8/10
  • Packaging: 7/10

Recommendation: If you have normal skin and are in the market for a new exfoliating product, look into Lush’s Ocean Salt. I think the grit of the sea salt might be a bit too harsh for more sensitive skin, though adding more water will help to dilute it.
