Ocean Salt Review

Ocean Salt was one of Lush's products I really wanted to try out. The salt can be kind of harsh on my face so I wet my face first to help dissolve some the salt before I start scrubbing. Ocean Salt is a pretty creamy blue and smells really nice. According to the website, "We make this best-selling scrub out of fine and coarse sea salt to give your skin a fresh glow like you've just spent a week at the beach" and I agree. My skin is pretty glowy after using it and it makes my face feel nice but it hasn't done anything for my dry patches or pimples. I'm not sure if its supposed to help pimples but I figured it would clear up my dry patches. I have been using this about 3-4 times a week.
Main ingredients:
  • grapefruit infusion
  • lime oil
  • avocado butter
  • coconut fat
  • coarse and fine sea salt
  • vodka

I'm still using it on my face in hopes of it clearing up my dry patches soon. I also used Ocean Salt on my legs before I shave. It makes my skin super smooth!

Make your bubble bars last longer :)

A cool trick for bubble bars to make them last longer!!! I bought this tea strainer off of amazon.com for $2 plus $2 shipping (link at the end of this post). All you do is break off a small chunk of your bubble bar and place it in the strainer, close it up and hold it under the running water. This creates the bubbles without having to crumble it (which leads to a lot of waste since the water "throws" the small pieces sometimes before you have a chance to crumble them.) This has worked pretty nicely...I am able to stretch the Candy Cane bubble bar into 5 baths instead of 2 or 3.


The Ex Factor

I used half of the Ex Factor bath bomb in bath today. It turned the water a nice blue color and smelled really good. The water did not feel as moisturizing as the water does when using Butterball. I was kind of disappointed in that... I think that is due to the fact that the Ex Factor does not have the bits of cocoa butter in it like Butterball does. I bought 3 of these because I heard that it was so much like Butterball (which I love!!!) Overall, I feel like this is a good one to use when cock-tailing since the scent is fairly neutral.
