Review: Lush Life's A Beach Body Scrub

It's been a while since I've done a Lush review on here, but I thought it'd be fun to chat about their newest product: Life's A Beach Body Scrub! A cool thing to note about this item is that 100% of the purchase price is donated to organizations working to protect waterways from microbead pollution--y'know, those little plastic buggers that are in so many face and body scrubs.

Life's A Beach is an environmentally-friendly blend of sand and sea salt, topped off with a scrumptious vanilla-caramel scent.

At first, it was a little odd to wrap my head around how to use this--I mean, it's literally sand--but I've found using only a small amount of product goes a long way and also helps to minimize any messiness. Everything went down the drain easily, so I wasn't dealing with any clogs or sand all over the shower.

I really like how smooth and soft this makes my skin feel, no after-shower lotion needed! This is a scrub that exfoliates well without feeling overly coarse or rough. The sea salt gives it some extra grit, but it's not too intense. If you've tried Lush's Ocean Salt (which I also love), Life's A Beach is considerably gentler. It's perfect to use before shaving. The light vanilla scent is a nice bonus as well. It's noticeable when you sniff closely but not potent enough that it'll interfere with the scent of your favorite lotion or perfume afterwards.

Overall, I wouldn't say this is an absolute must-have, but it is a nice skin indulgence for summer. It's a fun little extra to pop in your bag on vacation--or to bring the beach to you! A 3.3 oz pot will only set you back $6.95, so the price is right and I like that the purchase price goes completely to charity.  But this is limited edition, so if you want it, snap it up fast!

Have you tried Life's A Beach? What are some of your favorite tips or products for soft skin?
