Lush Christmas Sugar Scrubs

Today's post is a little review of the Lush Sugar Scrubs I bought recently. I've tried 'Sugar Babe' before but 'Sugar Plum Fairy Scrub' was new to me and I wanted to see if i'd love it as much as I love 'Sugar Babe'.

Lush Sugar Plum Fairy Scrub
The Sugar Plum Fairy Scrub is limited edition this Christmas and is very cute with a little angel on top. It works in exactly the same way as the other sugar scrubs and smells lovely. The scent is really hard to describe; it's quite sweet and fruity with a hint of almond. I found it to be really moisturising and it works really well to make your skin really smooth and smelling sweet. I never use a whole sugar scrub in one shower as it would work out to be really expensive! I managed to break this one up into about four chunks so it would last me about four showers. This works out at just under 50p a shower which I think is a lot better than using all £1.95 of it in one go! This sugar scrub is exactly the same size as the ones in the regular range at Lush but it's actually cheaper so i'd definitely recommend stocking up on these as they're a bit of a bargain - I know i'll be looking out for them in the Christmas sale too!

Lush Sugar Babe
Sugar Babe is available all year round and is the only product I regularly repurchase from Lush. I love the scent of it; again it's really hard to describe, it is quite floral but really really sweet which makes your skin smell lovely! It has a soft centre with a little red surprise in the middle which makes it smell even nicer! Again I break it up into about four pieces to make it last a bit longer. This sugar scrub is quite expensive at £2.60; this means it costs about 65p a shower so I usually use it as a treat once a month to give my skin a bit of love!

The trick with all the Lush shower scrubs is to wet them a little bit and then quickly rub the sugar onto your skin. If you wet it too much it will dissolve as it's made of sugar and you'll have nothing left! I've also reviewed 'Rub Rub Rub' which is a liquid sugar scrub/shower gel - click here to have a read. If you've tried these sugar scrubs i'd love to know your thoughts on them too.

  1. I really like the Lush shower scrubs, as I get quite bumpy skin on my arms, and they're amazing! Definitely going to try and give the LE one a go before it disappears, it looks lovely and you can't go wrong with almond scents! xx

  7. Really enjoyed your review as I put the first one on my Christmas list so glad you said it smells lovely :) I break up a lot of their bath products like bubble bars etc cos I can't justify having £3 baths!

  8. I havent tried any sugar scrubs yet, but I will defo need to! since I only have a shower in my flat, I feel sad when I go into lush sometimes knowing that I cant get bathbombs anymore :( and their soap tends to dry my skin out really bad. so sugar scrubs may be the way forward :) xx
