Lush Rub Rub Rub me down

So I’m on a Lush high. Apart from Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner —which I raved about in a previous entry, I also picked up this shower scrub from Lush called Rub Rub Rub. It’s mostly made up of sea salt, lemon juice and water with jasmine and orange infusions. It also contains lactic acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which is a great exfoliant for sloughing off dead skin cells mildly as compared to much stronger exfoliants. 

To be honest, I didn’t expect much from this. I thought it was like any other ordinary scrub I’ve tried, like that of St. Ives and the Body Shop’s. I was ready to dismiss it as just another exfoliating scrub but after using it for three consecutive weeks now (thrice in a week), my thoughts have indubitably changed.
First of all, it has a thin and slightly runny consistency for a scrub, as compared to the other scrubs I’ve tried (St. Ives Apricot Scrub, Body Shop as mentioned). Its scrub particles and micro beads are on the finer side of things so regardless if you’re a rough scrubber, this won’t be irritating to the skin at all. 

Did I mention it included sea salt? Salt is known to be drying to the skin but the mix of lactic acid in this scrub leaves the skin absolutely moisturized and smooth after usage. The other scrubs usually left my skin squeaky clean but a bit dry and tight. It must be the lactic acid at work which leaves me quite impressed, as I didn’t think its amount in this scrub would be negligible.  

To prove how smooth and moisturizing Rub Rub Rub is, I didn’t cleanse with any soap or body conditioner after using it to truly see if it could deliver. I even used a particularly drying soap beforehand one time and it didn’t irritate my skin at all. Just smooth, soft skin without any oily film some scrubs leave behind. Overall, it delivered great results during the course of my road test that I’m convinced I found a current favorite body scrub. 
Some gripes:
1. The jar container makes me so frustrated! The scrub granules get stuck in between the lid and body that it makes it so hard to open and seal the jar. But then, I don’t know how best to package it since it’s a runny scrub and unlike St. Ives that comes in a much more convenient squeeze tube, I don’t think this will work with that.

2. The salt particles melt away quickly so you must scrub immediately and thoroughly once applied to damp skin. Damp skin, I reiterate, as it will melt immediately upon contact with wet skin.

Will I repurchase? YES — Immediately even as I only have a fourth of the tiny sample pot left. I initally wanted to try Ocean Salt which is a much more intense face scrub (larger salt particles) but am too scared that it might do more harm than good.

This comes in a small 130g jar that costs Php 325. The bigger size is 250g (still have to check the price!)
