LUSH's Ocean Salt comes in this black tub container, but I don't mind. It smells light and refreshing and it looks like raw sugar mixed with blue lotion. I didn't like this scrub. I felt like it was too abrasive/harsh and left my skin feeling kind of raw and dry. Maybe this would be better for very, very oily people with less sensitive skin. Personally, I'd rather save the $35 dollars and use a homemade olive oil and sugar scrub. More moisturizing, just as effective exfoliator, and cheaper alternative.

I love LUSH products, so I wasn't surprised that this stuff works wonderfully. My skin is really strange. Oily, dry, and flaky all at once. I think it has more to do with the chemical content of other products I've been using more than any other element. Since switching to more natural products I've had great success.

The bigger granules are kind of strange and uncomfortable, but if you get any they either easily fall off or you can see them to pick them out. I think the biggest plus for this stuff is that, unlike other scrubs, you only need a little bit of it to get enough scrub from it. I think it smells beautifully fresh, and is super easy to wash off. That is ALWAYS my biggest issue with face scrubs, so usually I only use them in the shower. As with all LUSH products this washes off easily and leaves no slimy residue behind. The salt disintegrates, unlike beads from other products that always get left behind and stuck in my hair, cloth, and sink.

My skin feels fantastic and refreshed after using this. I will be buying this product again but I'm unsure if I'm going to try Angels on Bare Skin first, or just keep using this. That all depends on how long the rest of the pot lasts.

Surprisingly, I actually like this product. I have had a very bad history with Lush's skin care products - they usually leave my skin irritated or I seem to have a negative reaction and my skin gets some nasty pimples. This is the only product that seems to help clear my skin and leave it soft/ glowing.

Since I have started using the OCM with a 1/3 Castor Oil 2/3 EVOO mix, my skin has cleared up dramatically and gone from ridiculously oily to normal/ slightly oily skin. I felt like I needed a good scrub to use once or twice a week to give my skin some real exfoliation, and I liked the idea that this was full of moisturising ingredients as well as cleansing ones like the sea salt. I feel like if I give my skin a fair amount of moisture at night and wash with water in the morning, it is a lot better. This stuff fits the bill, it doesn't leave my skin oily like some scrubs (St Ives being the main one), leaves my skin soft and really gives it a deep down clean.

My only concern with this is the larger salt chunks - these really irritate my skin and actually hurt when I wash my face if they are caught up in the circular motions I do when use a facial scrub. Luckily they are so big they usually fall off my face, and there aren't too many/ they are easy to avoid using.

Overall, a surprisingly good product from Lush.

I tried both of the versions. I know there's people who prefers the NA version because of the consistency. I tried the English version and the NA version. I just love both of them. I am sorry
i can't help it, I love all Lush. They are different in consistency, and they work just great on my skin. I will recommend it to everyone and also I will re buy it. ( I prefer the English version bc of the price.)

I have combination skin, with dry creeks and an oily T-zone. Ocean Salt works well for me, afterwards my skin feels so smooth that I can't stop touching it, and I definitely can tell that it is removing the dry, dead skin cells on my face. It does the job, but I wouldn't repurchase only because it is not a miracle worker for me. I do like the smell though.

Oily skin unfortunately leaves me with tiny, annoying bumps that are simply built-up grossness, and I've never found a good exfoliator that didn't break me out or tear up my skin. I thought Ocean Salt would be quite harsh, but I decided to give it a try because even if it didn't work for my face, it can be used as a body scrub (and it really does make for a great part of a pedicure ;D).

Pleasantly surprised with how well my skin handled it. If you try to rub it on without any water, it's a bit harsh, but a few drops of water with the Ocean Salt in your palm smoothes it out considerably. It's really great for dry patches (strangely enough, I get them in the summer sometimes), and it helps get rid of those annoying little oil bumps. The smell is intoxicating, to say the least, and while the price is a bit daunting, I need so little of the product each time I use it (which is only twice a week) that it will last quite a while, so I feel it's worth it. Just be sure to moisturize afterward!

I've already bought another jar even though I'm not even halfway through my first one. :)

I really like the sea salt and lime smell of Ocean Salt. However, it doesn't seem to be working for me as a scrub. I find there isn't enough fine sea salt in it to actually exfoliate my skin. I am just getting a random scrub particle here and there (I did mix up the product in the pot). Also, I find the coarse sea salt in this to be too harsh and abrasive. Most of them fall into the sink anyway while I am rubbing the product on my skin, because they are such large particles. The few that end up being dragged across my skin hurt because of the jagged edges, and leave red scratch marks. I just don't see the point of having the coarse sea salt at all. Right now I am just trying to use up the product and using it as a cream cleanser. I ordered mine from the U.K., and I heard from one YouTube reviewer that the one in North America has a slightly different formulation (it contains both fine and coarse sea salt in larger amounts than grapefruit infusion - and thus is more exfoliating). Therefore, I might try the N.A. one later on (though the coarse sea salt existing in the N.A. one too is a bit of a turn off), but I would def. not repurchase the U.K. one.

The product has a creamy texture, but is too harsh for my skin. I tend to use round exfoliator beads, not ones with jagged edges. I used the remaining of the sample on my body. The vodka in the product does sting my skin a little when I leave it on for too long. Make sure you thoroughly stir the product before using it. For it's price and quality, I will not consider buying this product. It may work for someone with less sensitive skin though :) I may use this as a body scrub.

I have use this scrub 3 times and Im already in love with it!!!

Here are the reasons why I love it:

1. it smells so freaking good
2. it deepcleans my skin and leave it soft
3. it leaves my skin matt ( I have combination skin)

the reasons why I didnt give it 5 lippsticks was because its a little bit to harsh and the product stings on my sensitive/combination skin :(

the product is a little bit to price but it still worth it...

I like the product, but if I leave it on too long I feel a strange/somewhat unpleasant cooling sensation. I only use the product every other day.
