Lush Rub Rub Rub | Review

Lush Rub Rub Rub - £7.95 (Link here)

Hey dolls! Yep, I've only gone and bought more Lush goodies. I've well and truly caught the Lush bug recently, and I can't seem to stop buying bath bombs and skincare goodies. There's just something about it that gets me weak at the knees and I'm definitely like a kid in a sweet shop when it comes to choosing what to buy. I could happily spend all day in there having a play with all the samples and chatting with the lovely staff about all of the products! Up until now, I've seen Soap & Glory's 'Flake Away' as my go to body exfoliator but that's all changed now as I picked up 'Rub Rub Rub' - everything you could ask for when it comes to body scrubs. After the lovely staff scrubbed this stuff on the back of my hand it just had to be mine.

 It's definitely on the pricey side for such a small pot with a use by date, but I always find that if I spend a few extra pounds on an exfoliator it has good if not better results. What caught my eye was the electric blue colour it carries and the smell described as mimosa and orange flower blossom is to die for. The scent lingers on my skin throughout the entire day which of course is a huge bonus. Although it's quite a gritty body scrub it looks alot more watery at first glance, and there's no doubt always going to be some water residue lying ontop of the product inside the pot. Don't be put off - once it makes contact with the skin it gets to work really well, not to menti0n the salt in it's formula means it can be doubled up to use as a shampoo and shower gel too. How versatile!

I only wanted Rub Rub Rub to use as a body scrub, so the shop assistant gave me some good advice before I went ahead and bought the tub. She told me to apply it to clean but dry skin, as the salt in the ingredients would dissolve alot quicker and therefore you wouldn't be getting the best result. Don't get me wrong, it feels slightly uncomfortable to scrub and exfoliate on dry skin and your skin will be tomato red afterwards, but what it does to skin is just ah-mazing. I can honestly say I've never in my life tried a body scrub that has better results than this. It leaves my skin feeling ultra fresh and smooth, and there's no oil residue to help strengthen the feeling of smoothness. It's a lifesaver if you have stubborn dry skin around the knees or elbows as I have no flakey skin left over once I'm done.

So would I repurchase this? Yes, I definitely would. It's like heaven in a jar and I've happily replaced my trusty Soap & Glory Flake Away with this little beaut. Once again Lush have made a product which hasn't failed to disappoint me in the slightest, and I'll be slightly gutted once I come to the end of my tub.
