About the product: Our Sugar Scrub is hard, but a bit of a sweetie. Its no nonsense stance stimulates activity and tackles cellulite with fennel and ginger. Skin calming lavender has a balancing effect. Get yourself wet in the shower or bath, but don't let the bar get under the running water or it'll be lost before it can prove itself. Scrub, scrub, scrub and rinse away. It doesn't waste any time getting down to business.
Experience: I got this Lush sugar scrub in my vellvette box and the first thing which I noticed was its smell. It smells so good that when I opened the box, it’s fragrance was all over. It is a hand made body scrub.
It comes has a hemisphere in a plastic pack covered with a sticker at the top. Earlier I was not aware how to use it. It was very hard. I try to dig in my fingers to take out some, it will just not come, I tried to break a little bit of this and took it in a cup in the shower and there I used it. You have to be very careful in using this scrub as it is very abrasive and can give you rashes. I used it on the back of my hand first. It lathers less and is slimy when it does which is good as it makes the skin soft and supple. The fragrance lingers on for a long time.
I would also like to mention that as it has sugar as one of it’s ingredients, so even a little water in it can make it soft paste like or rather gooey. However, that makes the usage quiet easy.
This is how is looks when it was drenched with some water and after 2 days, this happened. The sugar melted and a thick liquid was separated. It looks like a mess...
this will last for around 4 usage or can depends as per the preference.
Time to sum up its pros and cons:
- Available online and at Lush store
- Ingredients mentioned
- Very nice fragrance
- Makes skin soft and refreshed.
- Scrubs well
- Have to be careful while using it else it can be very abrasive.
- Using can be tricky and messy
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
My take: Overall, it’s a good scrub but tricky to use.
