Lush Sugar Scrub – A Review

I’m a big fan of Lush products – accessible, pretty, animal friendly, green… it’s all good. I have been using Sugar Scrub from Lush for the past few weeks, thought I’d share my thoughts.



Sugar Scrub is a vegan friendly product and has a herbal lavenderish scent.

Lush says it’s good for scrubbing away dead skin cells, tackling cellulite, and and invigorating sluggish skin – I would be inclined to agree. It is rough so maybe those with sensitive skin should go for a gentler option.

I think this would be a great product for getting the skin ready for Summer. It would actually be ideal for sloughing off self tan after it has started to go patchy. I used it on my hands the other day after applying some St Tropez to my face. Job well done.

I got four showers out of this chunk but those with sensitive skin might stretch it further – I scrub the bejaysus out of my skin. I also preferred this to sticking my fingers in a pot of exfoliant, much less messy and far more effective. It’s not something I would use for every shower but rather for sloughing off dead skin cells by the mass load once every few weeks.

I originally chopped mine in half using a sharp knife – I tend to do this with Lush soaps so I pretty much did this wihtout thinking. I made a wee bit of a mess but all in all it was a success. I made the mistake of leaving it on the side of my bath near the hot tap after use. I returned an hour later to a bit a melted blob. Luckily said melted blob was still usable.

Tis’ lovely – but as I said best for those who like a rough scrub. I look forward to trying their Sugar Babe scrub next.

Have you tried this one? How about Sugar Babe – would you recommend it?

    I was told to chop mine into 4 pieces and mix each piece with water in a small bowl .. and then using it like a showergel. It was not harsh at all. I prefer the Sugar Babe over the Sugar Scrub, because it contains coco oil and is super moisturising. And it smells better.

    Thanks for the review. I also find it tough with Lush’s soaps – since the size is so large, you have to break them into smaller pieces for several use. I always end up having them break all over the bathroom counter, making a huge mess.

    Was looking for a review on this! Was very interested to see how a block faired vs. a tub exfoliant. Heading on holidays in June and need to throw all my Winter skin in the bin :P Thanks for the review, I look forward to your next post :) x The Make Up Fairy
