There are two items I love at Lush: their bath bombs and their Ocean Salt scrub. I already pretty much mastered the DIY bath bombs I thought I’d tackle the second and make my own DIY Lush Salt Scrub. It not only smells amazing – it tastes amazing: salty, coconuty, limey.
If I’m being honest, I tried googling DIY Lush Ocean Salt to copy, and none of the recipes out there seemed to match the real scrub as closely as I would have liked. (Side note – my computer accepts the word “googling”) I looked at the Lush website instead and bought almost every ingredient I could possibly find including the Fucus Vesiculosus. No, I didn’t swear, it’s just a type of seaweed. Seaweed that clears acne and acts as a detoxifier for our skin!
