Self Preserving
If you love the original Ocean Salt but prefer a gentler scrub or want a vegan version, this is the one you want. Made with the same base of scrubby sea salt, softening avocado butter and refreshing lime, our self-preserving formula will still exfoliate, moisturize and brighten, but it will leave more of a protective layer on the skin after rinsing. This is because we've used skin-softening silken tofu, mango butter and japan wax in place of lanolin. And there's no synthetic preservatives in here: bonus!

This brought back so many wonderful travel memories!

Québec | 2 months ago

I have never found a body scrub that smells so great before, the fragrance brings back memories of my past travels, especially a beach in Okinawa, Japan. When I open the tub it's like I was transported directly to the seaside, with the salty air and the sunscreen remnants. I love the texture of the scrub, it's very coarse and helps my acneic skin a lot. I wish there would be a perfume or a body spray smelling like this. Please Lush make it happen!

Love it!

Got this as a free sample, I've always been interested in it but didn't wanna buy the full size without testing it first so that was convenient! I did really enjoy it, it left me feeling smooth and soft, the salt wasn't abrasive at all. I did notice the film it leaves immediately afterwards, but it disappears pretty quickly.

Oily, leaves a gross film

I chose this as my free sample for an order. Gave it a try in the shower as I needed to do some exfoliating anyway. Tried it on my face, the salt immediately dissolved and I was left with a grainy, thick oil. Was a really unpleasant feeling.. I rinsed it off immediately and the "film" remained on my face. It was thick and sticky 🤢 I thought ok whatever maybe its better as a body exfoliator. Ehmm, no. Left the same unpleasant residue and it annoyed me so much I washed a second time to get rid of it. Usually I'm fine with a little bit of residue from products but this was too much.. I won't be purchasing a full size. 2 stars instead of 1 because the smell is great.

I got Ocean Salt SP as a suggestion for a Lush Consultant and immediately came back to Lush for a full size. I have acne prone skin that is very dry. Personally, the "film" after washing off the scrub is refreshing to me. It makes my skin feel hydrated and soft. I use Ocean Salt SP about 2-3 times a week paired with Light Touch Naked Facial Oil and have seen such a big difference in my complexion! Redness, gone. Breakouts, minimal. One jar of the smaller size lasts me about 4 months and my partner uses it too! It is a staple in our shower and we love that the only plastic in our bathroom is 100% NOT virgin.

Great skin

I received this as a sample and I am impressed. I think it makes my skin clearer. It feels great as an exfoliant, but does leave behind a thin film that is noticeable and makes me want to wash again. I don't notice or mind the smell enough for it to even leave an impression post-application.

I have been a faithful user of this product for over 4 years

I used to get awful breakouts. Now that I use Ocean salt I hardly get them. I mix the ocean salt up in the container before use since the larger salt pieces tend to be on top. It smells amazing and makes my skin brighter and feel better every time I use it.

Results: pretty good, smell: HORRIBLE

Ohio | 3 months ago

I got this as a sample: very weird to get used to with it leaving a film on the skin and after a few days my skin did feel better BUT the smell is absolutely HORRIBLE and lingers long after using it because of the film. Even my boyfriend said he could smell it sitting next to me. I hope to find something comparable with a different smell.

Gross film!

I used this product in the past and loved it! I recently bought a tub and when I went to wash it off it left a gross "soap scum" film over my entire face.. which didn't happen before. I was not impressed.

It's a no for me

I'm surprised this is marketed as a face scrub. I don't really classify my skin as sensitive but my first swipe of it had a huge chunk of salt that scratched my forehead. The scent is meh. I love Lush but this one is not for me.

This scrub is amazing for someone with dry, sensitive skin!!

My skin tends to be very dry in the winter. I live in Canada where the temperatures can get as low as -40 so when my skin gets dry I feel like there's no going back due to how textured, flaky and sore it can get from constantly being in a cold climate. I couldn't apply makeup at all or it looked terrible. My skin is also severely sensitive and this product worked WONDERS after just ONE USE. All of the dead/dry skin on my face was gone and there was no sting or reaction on my face at all after using. I followed up with my every day moisturizer and no one would ever be able to tell that 10 minutes before my skin was so dry it was flaking off!!! very happy!!
