Review - Lush Body Scrub


Lush has had its ups and downs in my book. Do they advertise themselves as ‘handmade’, ‘ethical’ and ‘natural’? Yes. Do they actually make things in the backroom? Yes. Do they actually donate a percentage of profits to charity? Yes. Did we once hear two Lush staff members arguing outside of a store about looking ‘more’ hipster? Also unfortunately Yes.

What we can say is that they are transparent, releasing a product book with ingredients listed and those which are not naturally derived highlighted and explained.

Our current favourite product of theirs is the Rub Rub Body Scrub. We love the colour, smell and texture as well as its sea salt based exfoliating properties. If you can get past the ingredients they use not being 100% natural, we would highly recommend this.
