Rub Rub Rub by Lush

Way back in October, I celebrated by 21st Birthday. I see myself as a pretty avid Lush fan so mum bought me a few goodies that she knew I could use at uni where I am currently bath-less. She specifically asked for products that didn’t require a bath, and whoever served her recommended Rub Rub Rub.

Rub Rub Rub 1

This can be found on the Lush website for £8.95 for the smaller 350g pot, or £14.95 for a 665g tub. I have to smaller tub and I can tell it’s going to last me a while since I’m only about an inch down in five uses!

Scent wise, this has a slight seaside smell which is probably expected from all the salt (the ingredients are literally salt and flavourings and not a whole lot more) as well as an airy floral smell. It’s what I imagine the Jo Malone Sea Salt scent to be, even though I’ve never smelt it. I’m probably way off with that guess.

Rub Rub Rub 2

It definitely works better as a scrub on dry skin than damp skin as it falls straight off, but my favourite use is as a pre-hair wash treatment. I exfoliate my scalp with it before my usual shampoo and conditioner, which is currently John Frieda’s Go Blonder range, and it makes my hair seem so much cleaner. I’m yet to use it as a volumiser which I’m sure would work brilliantly as it’s full of sea salt, but I’ll give it a go and let you know.

Personally this isn’t something I’d have ever picked up for myself as I love the Soap & Glory body scrubs (especially The Breakfast Scrub), but I’m so glad I’ve got it. I can’t say it’s the best body scrub on the market but it’s definitely an amazing shampoo. It really foams up like a shampoo and you get a scalp exfoliation that so few products offer.

Rub Rub Rub 3

I don’t know if I’ll rush out to buy this when I run out but I would definitely consider purchasing it again if I was going on a Lush splurge.

    I grabbed the big tub the other day, didn’t realise how huge it was! Hoping I like it. I never would have thought to use one on my scalp? Thanks! Tina x

    • It foams up like a shampoo and I much preferred it for that than I did for my body! I’ll probably stick to my trusty Soap & Glory scrubs for my body but I would repurchase this for my hair again – especially if my scalp got a little sunburnt x

        Oh brilliant. I’ll definitely try that. I haven’t tried Soap & Glory scrub either so I’ll give it a go if this doesn’t work for me X
