Hmmm...I'm not a big fan of this and don't like it much at all. After reading some reviews I was pretty eager to try it so I went and bought a tub. I find this to be really stinky & it tastes disgusting, it's obviously very salty and it's very difficult to keep it off your mouth. The grains are also too large and scratchy and didn't leave my face as smooth as I was hoping. I also hate the lousy packaging, stupid lid. I wouldn't purchase this again :-(

WOW!!! i can honestly say that i've never tried a scrub this good!!! i don't know what it is about the proportion of rough and fine salt that makes it really so exfoliating. also love the grapefruit, lime and everything else in the scrub that makes it so wonderfully refreshing.
also i have fairly sensitive skin and the scrub stung a tiny bit but it wasn't bad at all.
oooh and another thing, this tiny pot will last ages, you only need a bit to use as a scrub.

This is the best exfoliator I've ever used. It smells wonderful, it feels wonderfully creamy and it leaves my face positively glowing. I would say this is a must for folks with oily skin.

I LOVE this. I'm already on my 2nd tub, and usually I'm so fickle I never finish anything :-) I actually look forward to using it in the shower! For me, the trick is to apply it to a wet face and VERY gently rub it until the salt kind of melts onto your face -- mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

I received a generous sample of this from the delightful Stanzi. :) A face scrub with large salt grains seemed like a bad idea to me...but this is good stuff! It has a few larger grains in it, but not so many that they tear up your skin. It will be especially perfect for my oilier/combo summer skin. Smells tart and citrusy, a delightful sensory experience. The second time I used it, I left it on for the rest of my shower as a face mask. It did begin to sting a bit towards the end, but left no ill effects on my skin--just softness and a glow. If your skin is sensitive, this probably isn't a great product. But if you're combo/normal like me, give it a try. Edited for update: According to the latest Lush Times, they're going to start making a larger size of this for use as a body scrub.

I LOVE this stuff! The BEST facial exfoliator I've ever used. Some might find it a little rough, but I think it's perfect and my face always glows after I use it.

This isn't the best scrub ever, but it's right up there with some of my favorites. If you are looking for products to try from LUSH, make this part of your order. In a 4.2 oz rubberized pot you’ll find this scrub has a festive thin layer of turquoise blue coarse salt and underneath a delicious citrusy smelling exfoliating paste. The effect is like washing your face with fruity sea water. It does smell like a margarita and makes me want one sometimes ;-). I only use this once a week, since any more would be too harsh for my skin, and there is a bit of stinging, but that’s just the salt. If you have dryness on your face, especially in the dry winter months, you can expect a bit of a tingle – just like a real margarita!

Smells like margarita.
Small pot lasts long time.
First time applies like i'm sandblasting my face, HOWEVER-
once i realized the MINI amount i actually need, this is now the BEST BEST BEST cleanser/exfoliator I have used and will probably ever try from now on.

Then again, "beauty comes with pain" and this is ABSOLUTELY WORTH the ultra-fresh, super-deep cleansed, baby-smooth complexion afterwards.

When I first opened the container and saw coarse grains of salt, I thought, "ouch!" However, this facial scrub, did not scratch my skin. It left my face, clean, refreshed & glowing. I use it weekly, and it quells all hormonal breakouts. It also has a delicious margarita scent. You'll hear mariachis singing in the background, as you exfoliate.

this is by far, the best facial scrub I've ever used! it jez left my skin really glowing. here's the trick : I first left a thin layer of ocean salt on my face for about 5 mins and then massage it very gently with my forefingers and middle fingers for a few seconds. rinse out, followed by sea breeze and celestial. done! I have the softest skin w/ glowing complexion!
