Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub Review

Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub

Would you just look at the texture of Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub - doesn't it look exactly like a blue Slush drink? As a child I lived for Slush Puppies and still to this say dream of owning a Slushie machine...dream big. Anyway to rid my skin of dry patches which were born from one too many Winter layer I have began loading up on body scrubs with my most recent purchase being Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub.

"An exfoliating shower scrub that can also be used to wash, volumise and add shine to hair. Packed with mineral-rich sea salt, Rub Rub Rub can be used as a gentle scrub on wet skin, or on dry skin for a really good buff before you get in the shower. Sea salt, a natural antiseptic as well as exfoliant, is combined with lots of lemon juice to leave your skin feeling rejuvenated and it also adds shine and volume to hair."

Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub

Basically Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub is a somewhat liquid based scrub that contains oodles of sea salt that foams and creates a slightly oily base when applied to wet skin. It smells great - slight aquatic yet fruity at the same time, much like daydreams of exotic beaches are made of. Unfortunately that is where my praise ends - Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub didn't offer much in terms of exfoliation, I felt like I really had to scrub manually with my hands to garner any kind of result and then worried that by doing so I would irritate my skin - less than ideal. Having stated this I do think it is only fair that I point out this could be the ideal texture for sensitised skin as it is really gentle, you would have to use it daily if not twice a day to really reap the reward of softer skin. The other problem I experienced was the really loose texture - wet hands and a slippery scrub do not make ideal partners. I lost more scrub down the drain than I care to mention, utterly frustrating and costly. The three times I began to try Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub I was so underwhelmed that I ended up following up with a quick rub over of Lush Ocean Salt which says it all really.

Above you will have noticed that Lush have stated you can use Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub on the hair and scalp which I would say is this products redeeming feature. Yes it is quite oily so you will want to apply and massage this into the scalp before shampoo rather than after. As someone who's hair grows tired of shampoo rather quickly and more often than not has lank hair this has been a revelation. Instantly spruced up hair with more volume than I could dream of, not to mention it gently exfoliates the scalp - removing any product build up to boot. As this does contain a high concentration of sea salt I would recommend spacing out use to avoid drying out the hair, following up with a hefty dose of conditioner.

  1. That's disappointing you didn't get on well with it, I got a pot as part of a gift box for Christmas and I love it and I do find it makes my skin so much softer than other products. But I guess it's because my skin doesn't need exfoliating :/

  4. I love this product, it's a shame you don't! It adds so much volume to my hair, although I definitely agree that it has to be spaced out between washes.

  5. It's always hit and miss with Lush products with me too and it's a shame that this didn't offer much exfoliation! x x x

  6. Sounds like an interesting concept, but the execution wasn't so great. I like the idea of an oily scrub too, something that nourishes and exfoliates as you use it. Shame it wasn't a winner!

  8. I've used the Rub Rub Rub in the past and loved it, so I was surprised to read your review! We all react differently to products I guess. The colour of this is amazing, and don't get me started on the smell! As a body scrub, it left my skin quite soft and with a fresh smell. I would not buy it again, but I enjoyed using it!

  9. I've looked into lush body scrubs and this one always pops up somehow. It's a shame you didn't like this though! You could use it for your face since it wouldn't be too harsh? x

  10. I totally agree! Was really disappointed with this despite the lovely smell - it's jut not strong enough for my dry winter skin! I did love for washing my hair though, it felt great to give my scalp a good refreshing scrub!

  12. Ooh I love Rub Rub Rub! I usually use it on barely damp skin, it gives a better exfoliation that way. I've never actually thought to use it on my hair, might do that next hair washing day.

  14. What a shame this product disappointed you, going by the claims it sounds like it could've been my dream product!
    Do you think it's worth the money just for what it does for your hair?
