Let me just start off by saying that, whilst this product can be used as both a shower scrub for your body and a cleanser for your hair, this review will just cover it as a body scrub as my scalp is a little too sensitive to be messing around with my hair care routine right now! Rub Rub Rub is a vibrant, blue sea salt scrub, drowned in a thick lemon juice filled black tub. I really didn't like the smell of this product at all when I first started using it as salt and lemon scents are a bit too harsh for my taste, although - over time I have admittedly got used to the smell and I don't really take much notice of it when using the product any more. I much prefer fruity, sweet scents, particularly when in the shower, and to me, yes I can smell the sea salt, but it smells just a taaad too chemically, which is strange because I find a lot of Lush's other products to possess a more natural, calming smell. As a scrub however, this really hits the nail on the head. I apply a little scoop of this every other day to my décolletage, shoulder, neck and arm area and it really has made a tremendous difference in transforming my previously rough, dry skin into a smooth, softened surface. The sea salt aspect can either be used for a gentle or a more hardcore exfoliation which I love as I don't like to apply much pressure to more sensitive parts of my chest in comparison to the back of my arms for example. I also find that the mixture spreads very easily and therefore a little will go a long way. In saying that though, this product isn't at all difficult to use in the shower which is always a bonus!
I'm half way through the pot now after around 12 times of use so this definitely isn't the most long lasting scrub I have, and whilst I don't like the smell, or it's packaging (solely because the salt somehow always manages to bury itself into the little groves making it a pain to get the lid on and off!! (which is a shame because I actually love how the little black pot looks alongside my black and white TRESemmé bottles!)), I do think I'll be repurchasing this due to the significant impact its had on my otherwise unbeatable rough patches!
If you're looking for, and/or like to use a freshening, high impact scrub which does its job requiring minimal effort and time from you, I would 100% recommend trying this one out!
Wishing you all a great start to the week,
