Though I have switched over to an otherwise entirely natural skincare routine, I cannot seem to give this product up - it's the only store-bought skincare product I use.

Since changing to natural skincare, my skin has become normal and balanced. My acne, which used to be severe, is now mostly gone. I get a hormonal breakout here and there and tend to get some small bumps/dry spots when my mild rosacea flares up, but it's nothing like it was in the past. I am happy with my skin for the first time in 10 years.

Ocean Salt helps me to maintain and improve my skin's condition when I use it one or two nights a week. I find that removing some of the dead skin from the surface helps to further prevent my breakouts, makes my makeup apply better, and keeps the small bumps from forming. While I have tried home-made scrubs, they just don't do for my skin what Ocean Salt does.

To use Ocean Salt, I apply it to my face and rub it in VERY gently. It's got quite large salt granules in it but they don't irritate my face unless I use too much pressure. I make sure to avoid any cracked or open skin. I feel the need to stress that if your skin is dry to the point of being chapped or if you have a lot of open/popped blemishes, I would avoid this product until things heal a bit. On open skin the combination of salt, citrus, and alcohol is not a good time. The smell is tropical and fresh and, even though there is some alcohol in it, my skin feels hydrated and looks bright after use. I follow with an alcohol free toner and some oil to moisturize and my skin is left smooth and soft. If it have any blemishes, they are reduced when I wake up in the morning. The redness in my cheeks seems to even out a little as well.

I know that this is a lengthy review, but I felt the need to go into so much detail with the history and current state of my skin because of the amazing changes. Ocean Salt has been a staple and has really helped me in the process of getting rid of my acne, balancing my oil levels and smoothing my texture. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND giving it a try. It's well worth the price and, since I only use it on my face 1-2 times a week, it lasts quite a long time. Also, if you end up not liking it as a face scrub, you can always use it on your body! It's awesome to use before sunless tanners.

Love a sea salt scrub, the scent makes you feel like you're at the beach! However, the salt chunks in this are huge! I think I prefer smaller grains of salt, so I'm not sure if I'll repurchase this. My skin sometimes gets red from the large chunks of salt, so I only use this at night and not often. Probably wouldn't recommend for sensitive skin.

I have sensitive and dry skin, and this scrub causes HUGE discomfort and overall irritated skin. Do not recommend.

I'm pretty particular about my skincare. I use my Clarisonic religiously with Purity cleanser by Philosophy and moisturize with a homeade serum of 100% pure, organic Argan Oil mixed with Elemi essential oil, lanvender essential oil, and lemon essential oil.(highest grade oil you can find, young living brand). When I read what all was in the ocean salt I was impressed. I went to my local Lush store and snatched it up, went home and scrubbed my face. *LADIES- do not use this with your Clarisonic, use after you have cleansed your face!* I was impressed with the results of the Ocean Salt. Left my skin glowing, moisturized, and smooth. Oh, so so smooth. I was in love. I have used this product for a year now. It is my HG exfoliater.

Ocean Salt by LUSH is definitely one of my favorite products. This leaves your hands and skin feeling so smooth and fresh. I love the feeling of putting on lotion after using this. The only think I don't like is how if you don't mix it well enough before using it, you're salt crystals aren't all mixed in. Wish they were mixed before sold, but still a great product.

Smells like avocado, feels like butter. Love using this on my hands and feet, with the product just melting away. Not a harsh scrub at all. Now if only it were a little cheaper...

This product is great! After using it my face feels so smooth. I feel like it deeply cleanses your face.

HG Scrub. This stuff is worth every penny as it does keep your skin clean and fresh. I use this stuff everywhere: face and body; face to exfoliate dry/dull skin and for my body to really exfoliate and get ready for when I'm going to self-tan. This was my 2nd LUSH product and have been using this for years after!

Love love love! I have always had oily skin that halfway through the day melted my makeup off and I would have to degrease (blot) my face several times a day. As I got older my face would be dry in the morning but by afternoon an oil slick. Ever since I've started using ocean salt my skin is finally balanced! I use it on my face almost daily and my body several times a week. It's the best thing to exfoliate before waxing too! Great stuff!
