Today I wanna talk about Lush's Salted Coconut hand scrub.
Here's my thoughts:
-When I bought this, for some reason, it didn't register in my head until I got home that it was a salt scrub. Don't ask me how I missed the "SALTED" Coconut part, but I did. Fortunately, I realized it before I used it on my hands.
-Whoever invented salt scrubs, in particular for hands, never had eczema, or even dry skin for that matter. The phrase "salt in your wounds" was invented for a reason. Salt hurts. So, I don't use this as a hand scrub. I use it as a foot scrub.
-The smell is kind of odd. It does smell like coconut, but also Playdoh in a way. It's not the worse smelling thing in the world, and the scent isn't very strong either. I guess I was just hoping for a beachy kind of smell, and it's not that.
-The texture isn't too thick that it's hard to spread. In a base of coconut oil, as it gets warmer it gets more liquidy. It's really creamy. The salt size and ratio is good in that it's not too abrasive for your skin but it does what it's supposed to do.
-I very much like it for a foot scrub. It leaves my skin soft and moisturized, although I do recommend using a moisturizer afterwards. I've been using my Pistachio Foot Cream by Desert Essence and together they keep my feet sandal ready. I usually use it once a week, in the shower.
-The ingredients are really great for your skin. Aside from the obvious coconut oil and salt, there's also Argan oil, tofu, Neroli oil, and lemon infusion.
-I find it quite pricy for the size, but then again, most things from Lush are pricy. I got the 4.5 oz size which costs $16.95, and the larger size is 10.5 oz and that's $29.95, so both pretty high.
-Overall, I do like it, but I wouldn't purchase it again. It's too much work to try to avoid the sensitive spots on my hands while trying to adequately scrub my feet. I prefer sugar scrub all day. My favorite being from Ghoulish Delights.
Have you guys tried this one yet? I would love to hear your thoughts!
