I love the smell of this, I have no idea where people are getting the minty fragrance, but mine smells of jasmine and mimosa, with just enough of a lemony hint to freshen it up and take that cloying smell that jasmine can give if it's overdone. I love it - Sakura in a scrub, my all time favourite scent.
I didn't find this runny at all, in fact I had to take the cap off to squeeze it out, but I think as with all Lush products, or other products that are handmade in batches, you will see a small variation in colour, consistency and scent between batches.
I found it was a perfect every day exfoliator, not too harsh but not pathetically wishy washy either, try to apply it and rub it in out of the water or the salt will obviously dissolve. Once you rub it in it starts to lather up and cleanses without drying. My skin was fabulously smooth after this, really silky. I always moisturise after bathing or showering, but had I been without one my skin would have been fine, no tightness or itchiness.
I will definately repurchase, I will be interested to try it on my hair.
Oh - it doesn't clog plugs or leave residue - yay!!
Love this product! I wasn't a fan of the scent at first, but it grew on me quickly. I bought a big bottle for the scent alone, but by the time it was gone, all the spots on my chest and back were gone. Gone! (Admittedly, that wasn't a HUGE problem, but still!) I had to use another shower gel for a few days before I could get back to Lush to buy a new RRR, and the spots started to come back - so it's definitely this product that did it. I'm on my third or fourth big bottle now; it's pricey but worth it since it lasts so long!
Gorgeous colour, fresh floral scent, gentle exfoliation, loads of lather - what's not to love? It leaves my skin a wee bit dry, but nothing a bit of lotion can't fix. HG, for sure. Will buy this again and again.
I bought this product last winter when my skin was very dry. I tried to use it on a regular basis because I found that it did help my dry skin. However, the smell of it was so strong and offensive that I couldn't use it regularly without gagging. I know Lush is known for having strong scents, but this one was too much for me in a confined space (the shower) with little ventilation.
I'm not a fan, however, if you do look for a salty scrub with a "fresh" scent to it, this is the way to go. I will not buy this one again, but I didn't throw it out either. I much prefer the scrubs with little bits in, instead of salt.
This stuff is awesome. I got a really small bottle in a pre-wrapped gift. I love the smell. It's a sort of citrusy-minty type of smell that I can't really place. It has tiny bits of salt in it that are super gentle and rinse away cleanly.
I don't use it in my hair because my hair is really dry, frizzy, curly, and somewhat coarse so I'm afraid that this will just dry it out further. However, as a body wash/scrub this stuff is awesome. Will purchase again.
I like this product and it smells lovely. It has little sea salt crystals in it and provides a gentle exfoliation, although for decent exfoliation I use a body scrub twice a week. This makes my skin feel soft and lovely though and seems to diminish stubble between shaves.
I love this shower gel !! It's makes for the perfect post-workout shower. Gives a good soft scrub and lathers really well. I like to use it with a shower poof. While it is very nice, I don't use it often as I prefer the scents of other shower gels.
I love love love this stuff. A lot of people complain about the smell, but I love fresh scents like this one. I find I feel really clean when I get out of the shower and it's not too rough on my skin. I use it pretty much daily. I bought the mid size bottle and now I regret it, because I have to drive for 2 hours to get to my nearest Lush or order some more online !
So far, I love everything from LUSH that incorporates sea salt. This body wash is no different. The smell is fresh and invigorating, kind of like a light citrus-y, sea shore scent. The salt pieces are not as chunky as in Big or Ocean Salt, so they gently exfoliate and melt in the warm shower water. This is not drying at all, and my skin is left soft and smooth.
You can also use this as shampoo in a pinch, which I've done from time to time. It doesn't foam up much, but gives your scalp a nice exfoliation and leaves hair clean and shiny. Must use conditioner afterward, though, as it can be drying.
Even though this is on the expensive side, as are all LUSH bath/shower gels, I'll buy it again. The fresh scent and salt really set it apart from the rest.
Smells great and refreshing! just finished one bottle, will repurchase it someday!
