This is a series I have wanted to do for ages, and finally I am starting it! I’m inspired by my friend Mali over at maliberrymakeup who reviews various products from Lush, and has done for as long as I can remember. I’ve started to get more into Lush again since the start of the year, and I’m so pleased. I’ve loved Lush since 2008 and my long love of it’s products are still going strong.
My new series is being kicked off by a product I have wanted for a long time, and one that is probably now one of my favourites from Lush to date. That being Lush’s Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub.
I picked this scrub up a couple of weeks ago and since then I’ve used it quite a few times, in various different ways. When I bought this at the time it only came in one size, 330g for £8.75, but since the summer collection and a lot of the Oxford Street exclusives coming into stores all over the UK, so have the tub sizes. You can now get this baby in a huge 500g pot for £14.95 online, but I’m unsure if you can in store. Something I can see me picking up in the future!
The first thing I noticed about this product when I first looked at it, was how gorgeous it looked. I don’t know why but I’m always attracted to blue beauty products, probably because it’s such a strange colour. It’s a bright blue product and reminds me of a blue raspberry Slush Puppie. This is also said to share its scent with Sakura Bath Bomb, a Lush product I really want to try. This doesn’t have a thick consistency, which I really like as I feel it goes a little farther than a thicker product.
Lush say you can use this on either dry skin for a more harsher scrub, or wet skin for a more gentle scrub. I’ve tried both and the dry skin one does work that little better, but due to how sensitive my skin can be at times, I’ve found that I’m using it more on wet skin. Either way it works beautifully and to the same affect.
Rubbing in circular motions I apply this generously all over the body and then rinse off in the shower. I also use this in the bath but I don’t feel it works as well as it does in the shower. I find that after you rinse this off it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth, and like a babies bum! It has a sort of moisturising component inside which leaves a moistursing layer on the skin.
I find this is perfect for use on the tops of my arms, my thighs, my bum (TMI?), and my back. My boyfriend really likes the smell of this shower scrub and although he hasn’t used it himself, I can only imagine sometime soon he’ll ask if he can. It smells so fresh and yummy, it reminds me of a floral, yet sweet and uplifting scent. Perfect if you want a good scrub for in the mornings.
This is a product I’ll only have as a once a week treat, even though I have used it a little on other parts of the body as and when I need it. This works great on tired and achey feet too, which has been nice to use on mine after pole dancing classes.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Rub Rub Rub, infact it’s probably one of Lush’s best products that they sell! It’s so good it was turned into a body scrub bar, Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub, one of Oxford Street exclusives, as well as one of the new summer products. I would like to try this just for a change, but I can’t see it beating the pot version.
I don’t think I have anything else to say about this product, it’s a staple if you ask me and one I will want to take away with me on holiday at the end of the year.
So, that was the first of my Lush review series. I’m so glad to finally have it started and I can’t wait to add more reviews to it. I think it’ll be a once every two weeks series as I don’t want to talk about Lush TOO much on my blog.
What do you think of Rub Rub Rub, do you love it, or hate it? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time all, take care and have a great weekend!
