I love this product. When i buy one i break it up into a small pot so i can use as much as i like (usually about 2-3 uses) and its very heavy duty but it exfoliates my skin wonderfully.
What a mess. Seriously, if it didn't have the LUSH name-tag on it, people wouldn't ever think of praising something as pricey and messy as this. LUSH tells you to use it in the bath or the shower, but if you do that the whole lump is gone in no time. I only used it once so far; just, grabbing it with wet fingertips already caused one side to crumble and melt. Then I rubbed it against my legs and arms and whole clumps and pieces fell off. So I put it in such a soap bar-holder so it could dry without lying on a wet surface, to no avail. I thought it would dry and was hoping to save at least half of my bar but no. It keeps on melting and dripping all the time, what a mess! To all those Lush-addicts going "people who dislike this just don't know how to use it", leave it already. We do know how to use it; the way LUSH tells us to. It doesn't work. And I'm not interested in spending a ridiculous price on something for which you have to do several studies and search the whole internet before you can find a way to MAKE it work in an acceptable way, just to be able to say that i'm using AND liking yet another LUSH-product. Instead of spending all that time and money, I can just as well grab some oil and sugar and make a messy scrub myself.
Oh and by the way, even though I didn't get to scrub properly, my skin DID feel very soft after all. Because of the oily ingredients, that is. Will never purchase again!
This scrub, like the bath bombs, is basically a single-use product. As soon as the moisture & warm of the shower hit it, even without direct water, it started to melt. I really enjoyed the scrub, I love the texture, color & scent, but I'm not sure if I would buy it again because $6 for one shower is pretty spendy. I wish they'd package it in a tub like Rub Rub Rub. Then it might be a little more workable. Anyway, I may buy this again as an occasional treat because I do like how my skin feels after using it but definitely would not buy this regularly.
One of The best peelings i've Ever used.
!!! I'm pretty sure that the majority of the people having written a bad review simple use the product not correctly. !!!
> This ist how I use it and how it perfectly works for everybody:
I'm using the scrub in a plastic box. This ist due to the fact that you have to mix the scrub with water. You have to take a Lot of water. The reasons for that are:
1. you can make the most out of the product (it's two to three times bigger with water!)
2. the amount of water causes the peeling effect - if you use less water it's going to be heavier and if you use more water it's going to be softer.
3. with the water it can be used as a normal liquid peeling or shower Gel - perfect for the use of the product
After mixing it with water you can store it in your plastic box. With the water it's perfectly useable and smoothy.
It works! I also like the smell! It's definitely THE peeling for me!
When I've started to use this product I was making the same mistakes however I can handle with it perfectly.
That's why I'm convinced that the majority simple don't know how to use it.
Follow my instructions and I would bet you're going to love it!
I love this! I used to make my own scrubs but this is for the same price. I keep it in a container and used it to exfoliate my body before I shave my legs. It has a really herbal grassy scent and almost lathers up. Which I live because it doesn't leave my sling feeling dry while I scrub. I am nearly out and will buy another one soon
This is a fantastic scrub. You just need to know how to use it correctly. Biggest downfall is price and packaging.
Like many others, I found this scrub WAY too harsh and difficult to use. Obviously there are ways of making it more effective and gentler, but when it comes to body scrub, I'm really not interested in faffing around trying to make it work, especially when it's so expensive for what you get. I might as well make my own scrub. This stuff just hardened into a rock and was too scratchy to even use on my feet. It did smell nice, but that's really the only positive for me.
This product straight up hurts to use, especially on my legs. Actually, especially everywhere. It smells so good and is a great product idea, but no matter how long wet it is it doesn't seem to help and I feel like it cuts my skin. And watch out for the edge! So scratchy. Ain't nobody got time for that!
As a reference point, I self-tan/get airbrush tans a lot. Therefore, exfoliating is key in making my fake tan look beautiful and natural. I struggle in finding an exfoliant that actually does its job in getting rid of patchy self tan spots.
This is a heavy duty exfoliant. It comes as a solid bar, making it tricky to figure out how to properly use it. I've tried diluting it in a different container with water, breaking off a piece and getting it wet before scrubbing, etc. The issue with this is that it's horribly scratchy. As in, I had visible cuts on my body after using it. I tried to be gentle about it, but the scratches still happened. What's odd is that I didn't feel it hurting my skin while using it, but a few hours after I got out of the bath, I noticed cuts all over my body.
As a foot scrub it actually works.
Ok I think they need to make a YouTube video on the different ways to uses this sugar scrub. The first time I tried one was over two years and I hated it, tried using little pieces, it kept getting to wet and soggy and most wet right down the drain. Then about six months ago a mini one came in a gift box and tried it dry as a body buff, after a couple uses it became to hard and ruff. I grounded it up and mixed with shower gel and it turned into a sloppy mess( maybe to much shower gel) so last month I get a wild hair up my butt and ordered anyone, determined to find out what everyone was raving about. So this time I stuck it in one of the large black pots(1sugar scrub makes a little over half a pot) and sprayed just a splash of water in it. It makes a very thick paste and a little goes a long way. BEST SCRUB EVER! It's not moisturizing at all but my skin was so smooth afterwards. It seems to have large and small grits so it really polishes the body. My advise, buy one( I'd get it from UK , they are much cheaper) cut it in three or four large pieces and see which way works for you. Also is a good dry substitute for a foot Scrub. I've already bought two more to stock up.
